Super location. Access from good roads and shops excellent but equally quiet and peaceful
Dr Hunter April 2021
A beautifully and newly converted farm building on a quiet farm close to the coast. It was very well equipped and very comfortable for a couple - there would have been plenty of space for 4. A very relaxing stay and we have already booked for next spring.
Ms Robinson April 2021

Mr Davies September 2020
We had a wonderful stay at The Cow Shed, our second holiday at this property. Two delightful weeks in the Cornish countryside. A well equipped and maintained, very clean barn conversion. Compliments to Jo and Paul for all their efforts and making this property an ideal location for our holiday. We have already booked again for next year.
Mr Huddart August 2020
Quiet location with a pleasant garden containing table and chairs as well as a good sized BBQ. The interior was finished to a high standard and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and the wi fi was working well - the mobile signal was not very reliable but that is not unusual in many parts of rural Cornwall!
Mrs Smeeton August 2020
Lovely cottage equipped to a high standard and very spacious
Mrs Speer July 2020
Another wonderful stay at The Cow Shed. The owners did their best to make the first stay after the lockdown eased the best they possibly could whilst ensuring the safety of their guests. As usual, the cottage was beautifully presented, immaculately clean and perfect in every way. The location is beautiful. Thank you to the owners for sharing their little piece of heaven. We will be back!
Mrs Healiss December 2019
An excellent cottage extremely well appointed with those extra little touches like Christmas decorations a welcome pack of Cava, chocolates, flowers and milk. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back again.
Mrs Duggan October 2019
We have enjoyed another wonderful week at the Cowshed. Lovely warm welcome from Paul and enjoyed our daily visits from the family cat. We were blessed with lovely autumn weather and enjoyed two days at Church Cove beach and lots of walking the south coast path. We couldn’t have asked for more! ??
Mr Smith September 2019
Really great place to stay, very clean, lovely people, very well equipped, suitable for children with built-in child gates and a nice patio and garden.
Mr Davies September 2019
The Cow Shed is a lovely barn conversion situated in an ideal location on a working farm in a beautiful rural setting. There are many local stunning views and places to visit along this stunning part of the Cornish country side and coastal scenes. The owners Paul and Jo, both very nice friendly people have done an amazing job in setting up this excellent holiday barn conversion. We can't wait to return for our next years already booked holiday, see you soon.
Mr Reynolds July 2019
Just where we wanted to be, excellent cottage and great that there was another adjoining as we went with family and they had the other
Mrs Baker June 2019
The Cow Shed is a true gem. Beautiful setting for a lovely designed barn to spend your holiday. Special thanks must go to our hosts Paul and Jo who made our stay very comfortable and the Cream Tea and flowers were much appreciated on our arrival. The location is perfect for visiting the many amazing places that this end of Cornwall has to offer such as:- The Lizard, Kynance Cove, Falmouth and St Ives, to name but a few... We would thoroughly recommend this barn as a place to spend your holiday. We have booked a number of holidays with Classic Cottages and this totally met our needs and expectations. We would like to return in the future. The Baker Family, Torquay (22/6 - 29/6/19)
Mrs Stringer May 2019
The Cow Shed exceeded our expectations - the attention to detail, the quality of the furnishings and fittings, the thoughtfulness of the Owners in equipping this holiday home to permanent home standards, as well as the welcome gifts, meant we had the best stay ever in a rented Holiday Cottage and there have been many of those. We hope the next time we want to stay in the Helston area, this fabulous retreat will be available for us - we will have to book well in advance to secure it I think.

The Cow Shed is a sparkling clean property and furnished to a very high standard. It has everything you need for a lovely and comfortable holiday in this beautiful corner of the country. Jo and Paul are welcoming hosts whilst also respecting privacy.
Miss Crouch December 2018
We had a fantastic Christmas break at The Cow Shed. Jo and Paul were very welcoming and the house was spotless, comfortable and had everything we needed. It is in a superb position for exploring the tip of Cornwall with the coastal path, beaches and several NT properties all nearby. We would not hesitate to recommend The Cow Shed to our friends and we would love to come back ourselves very soon.
Mrs Lynch October 2018
Fantastic property. Beautifully done and very well thought out and equipped. We had a wonderful stay and would love to come back.
Mrs Bright August 2018
A stunning cottage located in an excellent position to enjoy all that this part of Cornwall has to offer. A very warm welcome from Paul and Jo, which continued throughout our stay. The cottage is excellently presented and thoughtfully kitted out. We didn’t hear a thing from the farm and were quite surprised to hear that the milk tanker had been during our stay - we didn’t hear it at all. It’s very well insulated - didn’t hear next door either! Can not recommend the cottage highly enough - we will return!
Miss Dobbs July 2018
We had a fabulous stay at The Cow Shed. The cottage is beautiful and finished to a very high standard. Everything you can possibly think of is provided. The only problems we had were with the stair gate. It did not seem to fit properly and had to be refitted by my partner everyday. The patio and garden area are also lovely. Again, with the safety of our nearly 2 year old in mind, a gate at the top of the outside steps would be a great addition for future users with small children. The location was perfect for us and easily accessible for all major tourist attractions. We had a lovely evening meal at Amelia’s in the near by Porthleven. Overall a fantastic family holiday in a beautiful cottage.

Mr Reed June 2018
we were made to feel welcome, the lovely sponge Jo made was really a lovely surprise.
Dr Prichard April 2018
The Cow Shed was a delightful property on a busy working farm. It was spacious, well fitted out and clean. There was nothing we wanted for! The owners were very helpful and the cake they left was lovely. We all agreed it was easily the nicest place we have stayed and we would recommend it to anyone.
