We have had a fantastic relaxing week at Lavender Barn and were given a warm welcome from Sarah and Tim.

Peaceful location and beautiful garden!

I cannot fault the property. 3 adults stayed at this property in early May my mother is quite limited in her mobility, With a little adaption on her part she was able to move around the cottage exceptionally well, with the use of her walker. The property was well maintained, plenty of crockery, utensils, and cleaning products. Tim and Sarah made us feel very welcomed. There was a hospitality package of essential items, such as fresh bread cake and milk. I would have no hesitation in re- booking Lavender Barn when I next visit Cornwall.

A fabulous weekend, very well organised. I would definitely return.

We so appreciated the attention to detail of our hosts in making our stay so lovely and relaxing. Everything was of the best quality: warm welcome with bread, butter, teatime treats, fruit, wine, flowers. Super bedlinen, furnishings, kitchenalia , comfort and homely touches that made us feel quite at home! The staff at classic cottages were very kind and helpful when we needed to rearrange our booking. Loved the extra itinerary suggestions too. Will certainly consider both CC and Lavendar barn again!

The location is good, but the accommodation needs substantial improvements to the bathroom facilities and bedroom/clothes storage. The Internet works but is slow by current standards. The TV is small for a large living area.

Absolutely beautiful location. Tim and Sarah made us feel most welcome. We were also given fresh home made bread and a beautiful pecan cake. The pond in their garden was a particular favourite of ours whereby we sat in the evening with a cup of tea enjoying the tranquility and sunset. We are looking forward so much to returning next year.

June 2018

Absolutely beautiful location in the heart of the countryside. Sarah and Tim made us feel most welcome and on our arrival we were given freshly made bread and scones with jam and cream. The Pond in their garden was especially nice for us. After a day of sightseeing it was lovely to return in the evening and sit by the pond with a cup of tea and watch the wildlife and sunset. We are looking forward to staying another week in September, and we also hope to return next year.

May 2018

Very peaceful surroundings, with glorious views of the rolling countryside.

This is a fantastic cottage in a wonderful location. Porthleven and Helston are both within easy walking distance, Porthleven being a particular favourite with wonderful beaches, shops and pubs.

March 2018

Loved the quiet location surrounded by fields of daffodils. The hosts were very helpful, the cottage was delightful, comfortable, well equipped and the home made hot cross buns and marmalade delicious. A very welcoming home from home.

February 2018

Everything! The owners were welcoming and friendly, and the barn was immaculately presented, homely and comfortable. Everything worked perfectly and nothing got in the way of us having a great time. Its position is great too, we loved walking around the lanes in the evenings and exploring further afield each day. We think this is our favourite Classic Cottage so far!

February 2018
