The sheep shed is a beautiful barn fixtures and fittings are exceptional It’s in a lovely rural location but easy access to both coasts . Mike the owner was very friendly and passed on local knowledge but was not intrusive. Highly recommend . Impressed by classic cottages very efficient and certainly would use them again .

September 2020

We had a wonderful stay at The Sheep Shed. The fixtures and fittings were of a high standard and we loved how light and airy it was. We look forward to a return stay and to seeing the sheep grazing in the fields each day.

Lovely clean cottage which was larger than the photos suggested. Very well appointed with plenty of storage. We'll be recommending the cottage to friends and will look to book the same cottage again next time in Cornwall.

December 2019

A wonderfully peaceful Christmas at The Sheep Shed. Ros and Mike both warmly welcoming and unobtrusive hosts, the property is exceptionally well-finished and furnished, and in a lovely setting. Our second Christmas here and hopefully not our last!

September 2019

We enjoyed a wonderful week, 7th -14th September, at The Sheep Shed. The property was immaculate, spotlessly cleaned and all in good order. The Shed was equipped with everything you could think of and there was nothing we lacked. The Shed is warm, cosy and extremely comfortable. The garden is totally, fully enclosed and safe for dogs. The accommodation is rural yet close to supermarkets and several beaches, we spent our days at Perranporth and Holywell, although we were also happy to spend days in The Sheep Shed watching the changing skies across the fields. The sunsets are a wonder to behold and I loved listening to the wind blowing around the cottage whilst looking up at the night sky through the skylights. Ros was there to greet us on arrival, she is the perfect hostess, friendly, warm and approachable but totally non-intrusive. She had baked us a delicious sponge cake which we happily demolished in no time at all. Everything was perfect for us and our dog at The Sheep Shed and we are intent on another holiday here as soon as we are able to organise a break from grandparent duties! We cannot find any negatives with our stay except to say Cornish weeks are much shorter than West Midland weeks! Thanks Ros and Mike for a wonderful holiday home. ,

A perfect cottage in a beautiful location. We had a lovely two weeks, the cottage was everything we hoped for and Ros and Mike (the owners) were wonderful. The cottage is on a small working farm and it was lovely to see the sheep and lambs each day and we had many visits from the cheeky farm cat. Having visited Cornwall for over 20 years, this is an area we have not stayed in before, the coast is about 20 minutes drive (Porthtowan, Portreath and Chapel Porth), you are very close to Redruth, Helston, Stithians Lake and Truro is not too far away. There are many cycle routes for all abilities and a very useful map can be found in the cottage which details, walking and cycling routes. The Great Flat Lode Trail is a really good cycling route, but be warned it is not flat and there are some steep sections, however, it is worth the effort. We would love to return and would highly recommend the cottage to anyone considering staying at the Sheep Shed.

July 2019

We loved the cottage and Mike and Ros the owners were very friendly and helpful the furnishings were excellent the only complaint we had to go home

June 2019

Beautiful Sheep Shed with everything you could need and thoughtful touches which made us feel at home straight away! A brilliant location for exploring Cornwall, with beautiful views to return home to for a chilled evening!

May 2019

What a gem! The sheep shed is situated in a lovely rural position on a small holding. It has an enclosed garden which was perfect for our dog and has lovely west facing views so we were able to enjoy some stunning sunsets. It is well situated for access right across Cornwall. Mike & Ros were excellent hosts, nothing was too much trouble and the cake Ros baked for us was delicious and a lovely touch. The accommodation was beautiful and in an excellent condition. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

May 2019

Lovely cottage in a convenient location for many days out. Enclosed garden was brilliant for our dog. The cottage owner was very friendly and helpful, and the cake on arrival was much appreciated!

April 2019

Finished to a very high standard and so well equipped.

December 2018

We spent an absolutely wonderful Christmas week at The Sheep Shed. The property is beautifully and immaculately finished, well-equipped and in a gorgeous setting. Ros & Mike were so warm and welcoming, helpful but unintrusive - really fantastic hosts. The Sheep Shed is perfectly situated to explore Cornwall - a real find. We do hope to return soon.

October 2018

Beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings. This cottage has been renovated to a very high standard and every little thing thought of to make our stay all that more enjoyable. The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We will certainly be back to stay!
