    • “Great location, walking distance to lots of eateries. Great hosts.”

    Marsland, Warrington, October 2018

    • “This was our second holiday at the Hideaway Barn and it was as good as last year! We had a wonderful time. The Barn is very lovely and comfortable. The owners are very friendly and the position is perfect for Charlestown - just a hop skip and a jump up the lane with lots of really good places to eat. Perfect location for visiting further afield and this year we would recommend Lappa Valley Steam Railway and Springfields Fun Park!”

    Mrs Archer, Fleet, August 2018

    • “Hideaway Barn is in the perfect location. Beautiful Charlestown with its beach, harbour (with Poldark Ships), restaurants, coffee shop and the wonderful Rashleigh Arms Pub. Also a park for the children. You don't need to go anywhere! Though Mevagissey and Pentewan Sands are a 10 minute drive, and a walk to Carlyon Bay across the cliff path is recommended. The Cottage is beautiful and of an extremely high standard. This was our third visit and we hope to go back next year. Peter and Nichola are also really lovely.”

    Mrs Phillips, COVENTRY, August 2018

    • “Great place to stay, friendly but unobtrusive owners, very welcoming. Brilliant choice of pubs and restaurants in village which is easy walking distance of cottage, and scenic cliff walks from harbour.”

    Mrs King, KING'S LYNN, July 2018

    • “Friendly and welcoming hosts. Cream tea on arrival was a lovely personal touch.”

    Ms Howe, HENLOW, July 2018

    • “Hideaway Barn is a fabulous find and one we hope to be returning to. The owners were helpful and on hand if needed but unobtrusive and respectful of our privacy. The property was spotlessly clean and very well equipped - and Charlestown is charming. We loved every minute of our holiday.”

    Ms Packer, Colchester, July 2018

    • “Once we got settled in, we had time to appreciate the accommodation. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. Very convenient for sightseeing. The owners were very friendly and kind. All round excellent place.”

    Mrs Lawrence, MALVERN, June 2018

    • “this survey seems to be about helpful holidays not the barn owners ,we had a great holiday and the owners could not be more helpful and the property was fantastic”

    Mr Lovejoy, MARGATE, June 2018

    • “An absolutely wonderful holiday. It was very straightforward to organise and directions to the property were very clear. The owners were there to greet us and show us round and there were lovely scones and clotted cream to welcome us; milk in the fridge and supplies of tea and coffee too. The accommodation was superb, beautifully and tastefully presented with everything you could possibly need. The bed was very comfortable the shower was nice and powerful and the WiFi was very reliable. The outside seating was a bonus ,especially on sunny mornings for breakfast. Parking on-site was easy. It was in a secluded place off the main street but only an easy 5 minute walk to the harbour with a wide choice of eateries. The was good access to the local buses and onward to the train station at St Austell. Many places can be reached using the local services and the Coastal Path is a matter of minutes away. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly and had some good suggestions for visits - the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are ‘must see’ trips. Occasional visits from Mollie the cat were very welcome. We would not hesitate to return there when possible as there is much more to see and do and would highly recommend Hideaway Barn.”

    Mrs Anderson, SOUTHAMPTON, May 2018

    • “A very comfortable and well positioned holiday cottage. The owners were extremely pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Plenty of eating places on your doorstep. A good place to stay.”

    Mrs Cullip, WEYMOUTH, April 2018
