Absolutely wonderful escape to Hettie’s barn. Owners had really thought of everything and it was very well catered for our children. Wonderful views for miles from the hot tub and a huge outdoor lawned area for the children to run around in. Very safe as not near a road too! Would love to come again

Absolutely beautiful cottage with a stunning hot tub and lots of space outside. Cottage was gorgeous and so comfortable. The owners Karen and Nick made the stay so special and they were what made the stay even more special! Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Stithians area!

Great welcome from owners with a welcome hamper for essentials along with cream tea. Facilities just as published. Enjoyable stay with my collie Trixie.

An absolutely gorgeous cottage with charming, friendly hosts who have gone that extra mile to make our holiday special. We are missing it already!

Lovely peaceful cottage tucked out the way.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Hetties barn, a lovely tranquil setting surrounded by fields and pretty flowers outside the barn. On arrival Karen greeted us with a warm welcome. Hetties barn is comfortably furnished and exceptionally clean. Soft cushions, throws, fluffy towels completed the homely feel. There was a fabulous hamper of goodies to consume! Our dog 'Hettie' had a fantastic time running through the adjoining fields. We spent many a evening relaxing in the hot tub, star gazing! A great week's break!

This property exceeded our expectations. We were made very welcome at Hetties barn. The cream tea and other provisions were excellent. We loved the tranquility of the location and ease of travel to the main roads. The best of both worlds really. It was well equipped,clean and beautifully decorated and furnished. The dog loved having her own field to run in and we all had a wonderful holiday. Many thanks to Karen and Nick.

A little gem! Beautifully decorated and a tranquil location. Very well equipped with the added luxury of a gorgeous garden in which there was a hot tub for relaxing.

We could have happily moved in permanently!

We're so very pleased that you enjoyed your stay in this lovely little spot - and great to hear that the hot tub was a hit too. We can't offer you a permanent residence unfortunately (our other guests would be very disappointed!) but we'd love to welcome you back for another holiday in the future. Tanya, Customer Support

Hettie's Barn is the most delightful place to say, its as lovely as Hettie herself. Karen, Nick and Charlie are lovely, friendly and welcoming. We had a delicious hamper waiting for us full of necessities and treats! The barn is in a fabulous location, surrounded by fields, peace and tranquility. Lots of sitting out areas and a hot tub and only a 10 minute drive to the beach. We had a wonderful stay at Hettie's Barn and wouldn't hesitate to book again. Thank you!

Hettie's Barn is immaculately clean, superbly well equipped and is in an excellent location for exploring all parts of West Cornwall. It is set in lovely grounds with far reaching views and a peaceful setting. This is a property we will definitely return to in the future.

We had a lovely weekend at the beautiful 'Hettie's Barn'. The owners could not be any more welcoming and friendly, and we even had a little visit from Hettie herself - Woof! The space around the barn is also beautiful - we loved the hot tub, the BBQ facilities and seating area the most. The barn is located in a brilliant area, which is close to nearby towns (we visited St. Ives and St. Michaels Mount). We will definitely be returning soon.

We have visited Cornwall on a number of occasions and can honestly say this is the best rental property we have stayed in. The owners went above and beyond to make our holiday special from the gorgeous hamper waiting for us on our arrival to the wonderful facilities on offer. A big thank you to Karen and Nick I am sure we shall be seeing you again soon.

We had a fantastic time . We had a terrible journey and arrived really late but Karen was there waiting for us with a smile and warm welcome. The cottage was all dressed for Easter too which was lovely . We’ll definitely go back.

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.
