Ms Redman June 2022
A beautiful, spacious and comfortable cottage. Well-equipped and in a lovely location, I would thoroughly recommend it. There were lots of thoughtful touches and the welcome gifts were very much appreciated.
Dr Weatherburn April 2022
Beautiful and peaceful location. Modern and clean interior. Great welcome provisions - scones, jam, clotted cream, milk etc. Good position for exploring North Cornwall.
Mr Tivey March 2022
Manor Barn was a perfect base to spend a weeks holiday in North Cornwall with loads of great walking nearby - location is really good for getting out to the coast and it’s wonderful sandy beaches and for heading inland to Bodmin to enjoy the likes of Lanhydrock (National Trust), Cardinham Woods (Forestry England), Golitha Falls, Siblyback Lake and much more. The property itself is very spacious, cosy and comfortable, well equipped, very clean and having a number of super friendly country pubs within a short drive. Our favourites were The Red Lion at St Kew Highway, The St Mabyn Inn, The Quarrymen and The St Tudy Inn - good food choices, dog friendly and very welcoming! Had some great breakfasts at The St Kew Farm Shop, The Merrymoor Inn by the beach at Mawgan Porth and Lazy Days Cafe at Port Isaac. Special dinner treat at Caffe Rojano in Padstow! In summary a fab week for our party of 6 adults and our dog - couldn’t leave without a visit to Rock Gin business just by the Ford at the bottom of the lane, purchases to enjoy at a later date and again worth checking out!

The cottage has been furnished in very good taste and good quality. The lounge is really comfortable and perfect for a group of 8 to sit together. There are lovely outlooks from the windows. Very comfortable beds and very efficient showers.
Mr Colville October 2021
Overall Manor Barn was a very comfortable place to stay, which I would be happy to recommend and would be happy to stay at again.
Mrs Constable September 2021
Excellent property. Well equipped and very comfortable. Everything has been very well thought out and the hosts were very welcoming.
Mr Grainger September 2021
A lovely comfy holiday house in an excellent location. House is extremely well equipped especially the kitchen. In easy reach of the many north coast beaches.
Mr Tomlinson August 2021
A fantastic cottage nicely placed to access the north coast of Cornwall. Well equipped and very much child friendly with a good selection of toys and baby gate. Open plan layout downstairs really aids a family holiday as you can cook, eat and play all in view at the same time.
Great places to eat and drink close by, check out the gin distillery down the hill and St Tudy Inn up.
Mrs Dalzell June 2021
Manor Barn is a great place to stay with every amenity a family or large group would need. Wadebridge 10 minutes drive away provided all our shopping needs and the coast is less than 20 minutes away. Would definitely stay again
Mrs Hume May 2021
Manor Barn is a beautiful place in a quiet location within reach of all the lovely coastal villages and attractions that Cornwall has to offer. The Barn is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We had a fantastic week...
Mrs Steel December 2020
Overall, this cottage is fine for 4 adults and maybe a child or two. It is far smaller downstairs than it looks in photos. It is fine in the winter months but the garden is very overlooked if you're someone who wants to bbq with the family. It has a great location though and the local pub is fantastic for a special night out. The beds are comfy but the sofas certainly are not. The kitchen is well equipt but not a wardrobe to be found in the house if you're one for hanging your things away. Lots of parking available and WIFI fine. A bit overpriced after comparing many other cottages over the years and needs a little TLC but we enjoyed our stay overall.

Thank you for your review - it's great to hear you had a good time overall. The property is a wonderfully converted barn with a lovely open plan living-room at the centre making the most of the space along with two sunny terrace areas to enjoy the outside. We do feel that the photos are accurate at present but the owners are also currently investing in a brand new kitchen so we'll take some updated ones as soon as the project is finished. If we can be of any help in the future finding the perfect property do get in touch on 01326 555555 and we'd be happy to help. Bryony, Customer Support
Mr Bourne October 2020
Manor Barn is a great cottage in a good location. We try and visit the south west at least once a year and this is one of the best we’ve stayed in. The owners have created a lovely home. Hope to stay again.
Mr. Benson August 2020
Hard to leave only a 2 star rating on this property, the owner did their very best to help us for which we were very thankful for. However, having paid over £2,000 for a weeks holiday where we felt unwelcome by the neighbours and having to restrain both grandchildren & our equally well behaved, dogs was extremely disappointing. A great shame.

Thank you for your comments. It was really unfortunate that upon your arrival the travel cot was found to be broken and we can only apologise for this. We're really grateful to the owners that they were able to source a replacement to be delivered to you along with a baby bath which isn't something that would ordinarily be provided as part of the minimum inventory and a gift as a gesture of goodwill. Thank you also for speaking with us about the report of barking dogs in the area - obviously having received a report from neighbouring properties we do have a duty to follow up but we fully appreciate your account and we're really sorry to have had to have that conversation. Bryony, Customer Support
Mrs Anderson July 2020
Absolutely beautiful place. It really did feel like a home from home. I always take stuff with me but didn’t need to use It as it was so well equipped.
Our daughters who have small children were very impressed by the extra equipment that was there. Baby monitor. High chair etc.
Garden and patio area were a great hit with everyone. Plenty a running around space for children and the dog.
Very nice decor and the beds were very comfortable. Towels and bed linen lovely. Plenty of space for us all 6 adults, 2 children and 2 babies. We would go again but we need more beds next time!!
We have no hesitation at all in recommending Manor Barn.
Mrs Jefcut December 2019
A well resourced cottage in a very good location with excellent access to all of the beautiful coastline that North Cornwall has to offer.
Mr Parker December 2019
The cottage offered a great space for a family Christmas celebration
Ms Endacott September 2019
Our second stay at Manor Barn and we had another lovely week exploring the local area. The house is warm and welcoming, with all the mod cons to make our stay a comfortable one. It’s a fantastic semi-rural location too - not too far from beaches and attractions.
Mrs Elliott September 2019
Had a fabulous two week stay in Manor Barn. Would definitely recommend this property for location and peaceful setting. We were greeted with a lovely welcome pack which was gratefully received after a long journey from Kent. Manor Barn is thoughtfully equipped with everything we needed for our stay even to the delivery of change of towels and bedding after the first week. Wifi worked well, plenty of room to park the two cars we brought and dog friendly which is a must as our Cairn Terrorist goes everywhere with us. All in all we can thoroughly recommend this property and will definitely be re-booking in the future.
Mr Pearce August 2019
Stayed at loads of cottages - have to say you are best site - maybe not the cheapest but it's about value. We were 4 adults,2 kids and 2 dogs. Main point is that this one would GENUINELY be fine for 6 adults plus the others mentioned. 4 WC's and a bath plus 2 showers. Loads of space downstairs etc. Would go back.
Dr. Kalies August 2019
We had a lovely stay and enjoyed our holiday in your wonderful home.
Dr Squires June 2019
A great base for a family holiday, an easy drive to fantastic beaches and to the sites of North Cornwall. Comfortable and stylish accommodation that we would be happy to return to.
Ms Endacott April 2019
We had a lovely stay at Manor Barn, despite typical four-seasons-in-a-day British weather. The barn was very comfortable and a nice base for exploring both coast and countryside. We very much enjoyed the cream tea on arrival too!
Mrs Peters February 2019
Perfect for 2 families and dog friendly too. Light, modern, airy and beautifully decorated. Would love to go back in the summer and make use of the lovely garden and outside space. A real find.
Mrs Smith September 2018
The cottage was absolutely outstanding. So beautifully furnished and excellently equipped. The owners have a real idea for what a family would need and it’s a real home from home. They also have fantastic taste and an eye for detail. From the Cornish cream tea on arrival to the high quality bedding to the helpful hints in the manual - all ensured we had a blissful break in Cornwall. Thank you so much, we’ll be visiting again.
Mrs Ellis September 2018
The cottage was tastefully decorated, the kitchen was fitted with all the modern conveniences and the lounge was equipped with all the entertainment needed on nights in. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. Attention to detail was faultless.
Mr Green August 2018
A lovely property with pleasant views and garden and secure parking. If you are looking for peace and quiet this you will find here.
Mrs Hickey July 2018
We had a very happy and extremely comfy week in Manor Barn. The house has been beautifully appointed with everything one could need and perhaps most noteworthy - VERY comfy beds. The setting is charming with a small, mostly dog proof, sun trap garden and ample car parking. Located 10 mins from Wadebridge made getting anywhere on the north coast easy. We would thoroughly recommend Manor Barn as a wonderful base in north Cornwall.
Mr Moore July 2018
Manor Barn is wonderful hideaway in North Cornwall. It is in a beautiful location with good access to lots of interesting places along the coastline and inland. The property itself is a fabulous barn conversion with homely interior design / decor. Our family two fifty somethings, three grown up kids and a dog absolutely loved it.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
