This is a beautiful barn conversion in an amazing part of Cornwall. It was so well equipped, beautifully restored and well located for visiting many lovely coves , beaches and pretty towns.

The Bull Pen was immaculately presented and extremely comfortable, especially the beds! We couldn't rate this property more highly. Everything was perfect.

The Bull Pen is a lovely, well equipped and spacious cottage. It had more provisions than we would have expected. Ideally located for Church Cove and Poldhu Beach. A real gem.

Thank you so much!

Well designed and fitted out cottage on working farm. Close to walks and beaches...perfect for a short break for family or two couples.

Highly recommend the bull pen, it had everything we needed. Spotless with friendly approachable owners. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, hope to return.

The Bull Pen is an extremely well-appointed holiday home. First class cleanliness and comfort. Because of it's position on a dairy farm it is very peaceful, with no traffic noise, just gentle cow noises now and again. The area is quiet with a first rate pub, the Halzephron Inn, about one and a half miles away. A little further are two good beaches and a beautiful little church. We will return.

A spacious and stylish cottage in a quiet farm location - but very close to many beautiful beaches and other attractions. The owners made us feel very welcome.

June 2018

The cottage was well thought out and there was plenty of space in all the rooms and plenty of storage space.

Excellent holiday cottage for families with young children and a dog. Very convenient location for general amenities, tourist sites and the dog friendly beach at Dollar Cove.

Beautiful with all the mod cons you could require! We will be back (and not just to try that beautiful fireplace :-))! Thank you!
