Such a lovely cottage, such welcoming hosts. Couldn't recommend highly enough, and can't wait to go back.

You will not be disappointed with this property

Lovely holiday let, excellent and helpful owners. Very dog friendly. Good location for exploring both north and south coasts. Very well equipped.

Fantastic property and very welcoming owners - we would highly recommend it.

More specific directions to the cottage location would have been helpful. Our satnav simply took us to the postcode centre, which was close, but on the opposite side of the railway line, and it took a helpful local person to get us back on the correct road.

Thanks so much for your comments - step by step directions to all of our properties are made available to guests when a holiday has been booked and these are accessed via their Classic Account. We recommend using these rather than Sat Navs as these are tried and tested routes and will take you straight to the property. Tressa, Customer Support

We agree with all the lovely comments about Moo Barn, but the overriding feeling for us is that the owners, Matt & Sharon, truly want their guests to feel happy, comfortable and looked after. It's all their thoughtfulness and care taken throughout the cottage and it's surroundings that makes this a special place to stay. Matt's amazing workmanship has even inspired this husband to make some home improvements when we leave!! Having felt nervous about a holiday after lockdown, we were reassured by the extremely high standards of cleanliness here. We have stayed in lots of cottages over the years, but the personal touches here outshine them all and we would love to visit again in the future. Thank you!

We have stayed in many cottages over the years and this is one of the very best. The fixtures and fittings and decor are of a very high standard and there is everything provided that is needed for a comfortable holiday. The outside space is spacious and very well kept. The access to the field was very welcome for exercising the dog. The owners are very helpful but keep a discreet distance and we were grateful for the lovely welcome package, particularly the lovely Brownies.

Moo Barn was a fantastic base for our holiday in Cornwall. Tucked away down a quiet farm track, we really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. Moo Barn has converted to a high standard, creating a light, bright and comfortable space to stay. It was immaculately clean throughout - something we've not experienced on recent cottages/rentals. Very well equipped kitchen, lovely outdoor patio and bbq, and 20-30 mins drive from loads of the Cornwall attractions and beaches. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Moo Barn was absolutely delightful. The hosts were very kind and friendly and did everything to make our stay a memorable one. The barn was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. There were lovely local walks from outside the barn , especially useful if you have a dog. This is a gem of a place to stay.

A very well equipped and comfortable property in a quiet location down a country lane. Ideally located for visiting nearby tourist attractions plus the north and south coast beaches. The chocolate brownies are excellent.

We have been using Classic Cottages for almost 30 years and have rarely been disappointed but we must say that Moo Barn is our absolute favourite because of its location and quality of accommodation. The ability to access both north and south coast within 35 minutes was wonderful. We were torn between going out and staying at this beautiful barn and peaceful location, we could happily have spent all day there.

We had a lovely 2 weeks at Moo Barn with our 2 children (aged 2 and 5). Cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and owners were welcoming. Well placed to get to North and South coasts with plenty of beaches within 20-30 minute drive.

Can't recommend enough, very warm welcome with delicious brownies, equipment of the highest quality, and just a fantastic cottage in general. Thank you from the both of us, and the dogs xx

Owners personally greet you on first days of stay . They have thought of absolutely everything you will need .

Perfectly situated for enjoying North and South Cornwall. A haven of tranquility after the bustle at the coast. Dog friendly with warm welcoming owners.

Our stay at Moo Barn was wonderful. Very well equipped cottage with all the essentials which was great! We arrived to lovely homemade brownies which were very well received. Great location to explore all parts of Cornwall.

Moo Barn was the perfect base for us to explore Cornwall. It was very clean and well equipped, and the fresh flowers, children’s books set out for our daughter, and homemade brownies were a nice touch. I would highly recommend this property!


We spent 10 days @ Moo Barn with our 2 dogs in July 2019 and loved this area. We enjoyed our stay very much. Excellent cottage, great central location, very friendly and helpful owners but unobtrusive, quiet area, spacious & clean including everything you need. Beautiful green grass around the cottage, our dogs loved it. Also the fence was great, our dogs couldn´t walk away. (great when you visited this place with young children)

During our searching in the internet before we went to Cornwall for a cottage, we found many nice looking. The first time we saw pictures of Moo Barn it stayed in our mind. After we arrived we were even more positive flashed then we saw in the pictures. It´s a beautiful place. Driving up to the west or north (15-30 Minutes) you will find many nice beaches to walk and swim. Great cities like Charlestown (excellent food: The Pierhouse, call up front for a reservation), Fowey, Padstow, St. Ives, Mevagissey (restaurant Nr. 5 is good), Gorran Haven. Seafood lovers will have the time of their live, good and fresh fish. 5 Minutes from the cottage you can buy at a local farmer: eggs and vegetables. Supermarkets are easy to find in St. Ausstell.

Sharon and Matt (owners of Moo Barn) are always helpful when we told them what we wanted to see/expire and advised places we never would have found without them, thanks very much for your good information and tips.

This was our first visited in Cornwall and not our last one :-) it was worth driving up 1.520 Km from the south of Munich. People are very friendly and helpful in general, good food (in different price range), a large variety of things to do / see (driving up to 15-30 minutes only). It is very clean everywhere we came, extremely dog friendly, payments by card is everywhere possible, good cellphone and internet connections.

Arriving at Moo Barn we got some brownies made by Sharon with a more than fantastic taste, never eat such good tasting brownies. Also they had some nice sweets for our dogs. Sharon & Matt you made our holiday an unforgettable experience.

We'll be back for sure! Tanja and Dave

Very clean and well equipped. Lots of extras provided. A lot of thought and care has gone into this property. Top garden not as enclosed as l had expected for our dog.

Thanks so much for your review; we're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Moo Barn. We always say when a garden is enclosed but we can never guarantee escape proof for the most determined of our four-legged friends! Should you need extra information about any of our properties then do give us call on 01326 555555. Tressa, Customer Support

A really lovely place to stay.

Cottage was beautiful, and very welcoming. Our dog lived having the field to run around in, and the welcome basket was excellent.

Dog friendly and human friendly too!

The cottage was very clean, tidy, and comfortable and everything was in good condition, and worked well. The owners were next door, and helpful but unobtrusive. And the welcome pack - especially the chocolate brownies - was very good.

The cottage is in a good location for visiting local attractions (Wheal Martyn, Luxulyan Valley, Charlestown, Lost Gardens of Heligan, etc.) and for visiting both the north and south coasts for beaches and/or walking the coast path.

We hope to return again in the future.

Excellent cottage, very rural but perfect for us and our two pooches. Great base as we were visiting family in the area. Very comfortable and clean. Nice touches with home made brownies. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return.

Lovely relaxing location and property. Perfect place to base yourself and to chill.

Excellent cottage in a quiet location- extremely well presented. Everything there that was needed to make our week very comfortable. The owners were very helpful and approachable and went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. Lovely welcome pack . Would definitely recommend to others.

Excellent cottage which exceeded our expectations.

We had a wonderful week stay at this cottage - gorgeous place and very central to all the places we wanted to visit - loved it, just wish we stayed there longer!

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL property - immaculately renovated by Matt. Location is ideal for piece and quiet - you can literally "hear a pin drop" all day and night. The chocolate brownies provided on arrival are awesome, and along with card, flowers and wine - the best welcome I have ever in a holiday cottage. Just about everything is provided for you and of a high quality, so cooking, washing etc. was really easy. The doggie goodies including a fabulous bed are great. As I stayed over a wet Easter - the flexible and very efficient heating was appreciated as well as the wood burner and logs. My dogs and I had a GREAT stay and we hope to return and get to sit on the patio in the sun !!

Superb accomodation in all weathers . Warm , clean and cosy.Everything you could possibly need for a visit. Don't tell too many people ... I want to be able to book in again ....

Moo Barn was our first choice cottage from the website and we were not disappointed. The location is quiet and tranquil ,although very rural down narrow lanes which are dark at night, we did not find this an issue. The barn conversion is finished to a high standard and exceeded our expectations. Matt & Sharon were very helpful and the little touches we found upon our arrival, the cake & cookies, the flowers, doggie bed, doggie dishes, doggie treats were excellent and made us feel very welcome.

A wonderful property and possibly the best cottage we have stayed in. Everything catered for - and of excellent quality. Fantastic welcome pack which even provided for the dog! Thank you Matt and Sharon.

Moo Barn was immaculate, modern and well equipped. Our dog Timmy was also spoilt, he loved sleeping on the cushion, water bowl and treats.

This is a lovely cottage - beautifully renovated and a pleasure to stay in. It was comfortable inside and out and the neighbours were welcoming but not intrusive. Great location for seeing the rest of Cornwall. The best welcome pack we have ever received.

Fantastic hosts, quiet location and relatively close to everything for a tour of North Cornwall. Wonderful welcome pack on arrival, cake, wine, milk etc

Owners were very helpful if needed but unobtrusive -perfect combination!
