Merrivale Barn is in a good location within easy reach of beautiful Cornish locations to explore. The property is well furnished and equipped, warm and comfortable- it is clean and well cared for/ decorated. Although on the same site as the owners it was not overlooked and felt separate. A wonderful holiday - just perfect for a couple. A very welcome home baked cream tea on arrival

Having stayed at many cottages & barns throughout the UK this was the best property we have stayed at - location, furnishings and the garden were everything we want in a holiday property.Also the scones and cream on arrival were scrumptious. Paul and Jay have a little gem on their hands with Merrivale Barn.

Paul and Jay were very hospitable and the cream tea on arrival was very welcome. As it has only been converted a year or so ago, it has a modern feel in an old building. It is a perfect retreat for a couple and has an excellent kitchen and good bathroom. All mod cons are provided with excellent wi-fi and good sized TV.
