Mowhay Barn is absolutely lovely and beautifully furnished. It is nice to have a garden and outdoor table and chairs. The owner is charming and lives very close by. You really do embrace the Cornish countryside staying here and the coast and beaches are a few miles away with the most stunning views for miles. A car is essential to explore the area.

Beautiful barn, very private with a wonderful garden and a most helpful owner.

The host was very friendly and welcoming she was always available and assisted us when needed. The scenery was spectacular with a very peaceful atmosphere. Be prepared for very narrow roads if you are driving and take care around bends. Beaches are close by and worth visiting however, there is no wheelchair access to any of them. For walks we walked up the hills which again its worth the climb to watch the sunset and beautiful views. Definitely would visit Mowhay barn again in the near future! Oh the homemade scones and jam were a lovely welcome upon arrival!

A superb property in an unspoilt part of Cornwall

Lovely views from the house and garden. Not really any walks from the door, but plenty of good coastal walks within a few miles. Mount Edgcumbe country park is excellent to explore and the passenger ferries from Cremyll to various parts of Plymouth were useful, especially as the weather wasn't too good.

Amazing barn and garden, beautiful location and beaches.

July 2018

The barn is beautiful with stunning views and a wonderful garden, however it is situated right on the road which is surprisingly busy so expect some road noise. The road leading to the barn is very narrow and winding (even by Cornish standards) so be prepared to beep your horn and reverse to the nearest passing point. There was a lovely cream tea and fresh flowers on arrival and the friendly host visited later that day. We were unlucky enough to have a broken toilet on arrival and then a broken shower. These were fixed but the age of the equipment in the barn makes this a likely occurrence and it was very inconvenient for us. The downstairs floor is tiled and very cold on the feet even in a heatwave, so remember to take your slippers if you sleeping down there! There are no shops or restaurants nearby, the nearest pub is only open at weekends and only serves food on a Friday. Some of the beaches are tricky to access. There is a fish and ship shop, pub and Co Op in Millbrook (which has its own interesting road layout!). There is a footpath to the nearest village but otherwise roads are too narrow and winding for safe walking with children so it is necessary to drive. We had a lovely holiday here but have mentioned these things to help future guests.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Mowhay Barn - it is beautifully located as you found; we do appreciate that the access roads in this rural area are country lanes which don't usually have pavements, and they are used by local traffic to reach the lovely little towns and villages on the Rame peninsula. We're so sorry that there was an issue with the shower and loo, and thanks so much for your understanding and patience while they were fixed. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay overall.

Very cozy cottage close to wonderful beaches and cafes.

June 2018

The barn is spacious, well maintained and equipped. It is attractively furnished, and is situated in a beautiful and quite location. The property and garden are well looked after by the owner, who we had the pleasure of meeting. A number of useful local guides and maps were available for our perusal. We enjoyed the complimentary cream tea on our arrival.

I can not fault this cottage, its grounds, facilities cleanliness and setting. Its a lovely place to spend a week! I did find this part of Cornwall to have slightly fewer easy access beaches, and slightly fewer good pub restaurants. One business owner we hired bikes from joked with us it was the 'forgotten part of Cornwall' - for some people that is going to be a blessing. For us it wasn't a curse, but my ideal holiday would probably be Mowbray Barn but nearer Hayle/StIves.
