4 th visit to the Sheepshed and won’t be our last . Excellent barn with everything you could possibly need in a wonderful rural location but easy access to both coasts. The owners Ros & Mike couldn’t be more accommodating and make your stay extra special. Thank you

Extremely comfortable and well equipped property in a quiet location down a farm lane only a short distance from the road.Very centrally situated for touring Southwest Cornwall.Welcoming and friendly owners.

Beautiful cottage, well maintained and spotlessly clean. High quality fittings and very comfortable, huge bed! Lovely, friendly owners. Great location as a base for a holiday. Will definitely return and also recommend to others.

Lovely barn conversion. Beautifully decorated, warm and Cody with comfortable bed and huge shower. Dog safe garden. Lovely views with sheep grazing. So nice to see them being fed by the farmer Mike. Really nice owners Roz and Mike, good location for touring south Cornwall.

An excellent holiday home so clean and comfortable and well equipped, with everything thought about and very dog friendly. Really loved our stay here.

The Sheep Shed is in a very good location and very quiet, Just right for 2 people and it has all your home comforts with the added feel of Farm life with sheep grazing only yards away from your door, Ros and Mike are the perfect hosts and kept us topped up with fresh eggs and home grown produce, we can't wait to stay again next year.

Our hosts Ros and Mike were lovely, very friendly but not intrusive. This was one of the best dog friendly places we have stayed , it was so well set up and a beautiful place to stay. We will definitely be staying there again .

Third visit to this wonderful barn and not the last. Lovely hosts, barn and location. Perfect position to visit all areas of Cornwall . A joy to come home with a sheltered garden away from all the madness. Thank you

Just loved our stay, could not fault it at all. Everything we needed just perfect in every way. Definitely stay again. Our hosts Ros and Mike made us welcome were there if we needed anything.

Wonderful stay in a lovely cottage on a working farm. The owners were really nice and great to chat to, even giving us some suggestions on days out.

Would highly recommend a stay at The Sheep Shed.

Our 3rd stay in this delightful barn in a beautiful rural setting ,Ideal for exploring Cornwall.

The owners Ros and Mike go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect and it was ,Thank you .

This is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday. It is located within easy access of most parts of Cornwall. The Sheep Shed is beautiful and well equipped for all our needs. Ross & Mike were the perfect hosts and it was lovely to return and see them again having visited once before. It was also the perfect place for our dog with the enclosed garden and the dog bed and treats were very much appreciated by her! We've already booked again for next year and can't wait to retutn.

The Sheep Shed is a wonderful place. A real escape from the world especially at the moment. The garden is private, facing beautiful country side with fresh clean air. The barn itself is lovely and very well equipped. The owners are really nice and very helpful. It was our 2nd visit and we return again next month.

Wonderful well portioned barn in a beautiful rural setting . It is equipped with everything you could possibly need ,decor , fixtures and fittings to a high standard . The owners cannot do enough to make you stay enjoyable . Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic stay at The Sheep Shed, it was the perfect get away for us with easy reach to lots of rural Cornwall, plenty of walks and cycling routes. We'll be back next year!!

This accommodation is in a rural setting allowing for a completely relaxing break. But if you want to explore Cornwall it is ideally situated allow you to strike out and discover all that Cornwall has to offer with many of the main attracwithin a 30 minute drive. The accommodation itself is spacious, tastefully decorated with all of the comforts of home. The hosts Mike and Ros are welcoming and go above and beyond to ensure that guest have everything they could possibly need. The added bonus to staying at the Sheep Shednis that if you gain an insight into the life on a working sheep farm. This was an absolute joy given that we stayed during the lambing season. All in all we had a fabulous stay at the Sheep Shed and will definitely book again.

Our third Christmas at The Sheep Shed and I sincerely hope not our last. We love it here; a real home from home. Fab central location for exploring the coast. The cottage is well-equipped and thoughtfully finished; super dog friendly and perfect for our needs. Welcoming and friendly but unobtrusive hosts, and views to die for. Would heartily recommend for a peaceful break.

Beautiful place in a fantastic position. We rebooked for next year on our 2nd day I think that says it all,

Top class accommodation

We loved our stay at the Sheep Shed; it was a beautiful barn conversion in a lovely rural setting, but not too far from all the places we wanted to go.

This is a great place to stay. Well designed, light and airy and very well equipped, in a great location with easy access to all coasts and great walks. Ros and Mike (on site owners) were most welcoming and on hand if we needed anything at all. We hope to be back!

Lovely cottage, great location.

Thank you for your review, delighted that The Sheep Shed was a good choice of cottage for you. Hope to welcome you again. Sarah, Customer Support

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 .

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.

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

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!

Finished to a very high standard and so well equipped.

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.

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!

We had a very pleasant week in this lovely holiday home. The Sheep Shed is a perfect retreat to get away from it all and has all we could wish for. It is well equipped and everything is working fine. We would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Very well equipped and comfortable cottage with good access to North snd South Cornish coast.
