Location is excellent for touring. Spacious and spotlessly clean

The Bull Pen is the best holiday home we have stayed in! Perfect west coast location, beautiful surroundings and delightful cottage. The house is well equipped for a family, the kitchen has everything needed and more. The washing machine is big enough for a family and the washing line and tumble dryer were unexpected bonuses. The beds are very, very comfortable and the showers were spot on, great water pressure! The farm tour was a great addition too and easy to arrange. We will definitely be back!

The Barn is really comfortable, well equipped, and spacious it was our second time at this property

Happy with it all. If I could give this property 12/10 I would.Spotlessly clean,very well equipped, very comfy beds. Lovely Owners. I have already booked The Cow She’d next door for October this year.So much to see and do in the area we couldn’t cover it in a week. Very highly recommended.

The Bull Pen was a perfect place to stay. Lovely location. Spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need provided. We could not fault it and will definitely be returning!

A great base for coastal walks. Owners very helpful. Good local pub.

We loved our stay at this welcoming, beautifully kept, spotlessly clean, cosy home-from-home. The owners have thought of everything so it is very well-equipped. Walking distance to the coast and a good, friendly pub - what more could you need?

Well equipped and comfortable cottage. Highly recommended

very comfortable property with everything we needed, the owners were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble, i would not hesitate to recommend this property to my friends and family.

A wonderful week enjoyed at the Bull Pen. Very spacious and comfortable and in one of our preferred locations. Situated on a working farm we were entertained by the cows.

The most beautiful barn. Finished to such a high standard and spotlessly clean. A real gem in a great location. Owners were lovely and gave us a tour of the farm, which I loved. The cows and calfes were just adorable. We will definitely return. A great stay!

This perfect Accomadation is ideal for a romantic break or a family stay. Loved the location and peaceful ambience. Ideally situated close to such beautiful coves and beaches, one within walking distance.

We had a lovely week in this gorgeous barn! Clean, well equipped and a peaceful location with gorgeous views of the countryside out the back! We will definitely be coming back!

We had a wonderful stay at the bull pen, it was peaceful and comfortable, and a short drive to some beautiful beaches. The visit to see the calves was a real treat for the kids. Thank you!

We had a lovely time in a really well fitted out and equipped barn conversion not far from the beautiful coast only a 5 minute drive away.

Lovely property with lovely hosts

We had a wonderful week in the Bull Pen - just can not rate it highly enough.

Very well presented cottage, fully equipped for a comfortable stay. Good location for lots of sights and activities in South West Cornwall. We really enjoyed our stay.

Bull Pen is a lovely comfortable cottage in a tranquil location. We were impressed by the quality of furnishings, and the kitchen was well stocked with everything needed for self catering. The design and fittings in the property make if feel like a real home, rather than just a holiday let. Although the farm is adjacent to the cottage, there was little noise intrusion inside the property. One new feature for us was the underfloor heating, it seemed to work satisfactorily, and there is a wood burner available.

One of the best places we have stayed over the years hard to fault the attention to detail and amazingly equipped thankyou

Excellent accomodation for a relaxing break, in an area that is easy accessible for you to go and explore Cornwall

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.

Excellent cottage finished to a really high standard. Lovely setting with easy access to the coast and the Lizard Peninsula. Would highly recommend a stay in this very comfortable quiet setting.

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.

Lovely property, extremely comfortable in an idyllic location close to a super beach. We have booked our return visit for next summer.

The Bull Pen is the most wonderful accommodation in a very beautiful and picturesque location. The owners cannot do enough for you, every little detail has been thought of. We shall be frequent visitors!

Love the cottage it suits our needs and the owners are on hand and very helpful would definitely re-visit

Well positioned for beach but also local facilities. Not far off good roads. Roomy and private

The Bull Pen is the most beautiful self catering accommodation, the standard of cleanliness, quality of furnishing and decoration really is excellent. The owners are lovely people and offer a very warm welcome, we even had a home baked cake waiting for us on arrival! The Bull Pen really is a little piece of heaven to relax in and enjoy! 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.

Really lovely stay and exactly what we needed. The Christmas touches were a lovely thought and much appreciated.

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.

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!

We honestly couldn’t find fault with anything about our stay at The Bull Pen. We have been recommending it to all our family and friends and would definitely love to stay there again.

What a wonderful cottage. We had such a relaxing stay at the Bull Pen which is so well equipped and the owners have thought of everything!
