Have all loved staying at the Barn.  Wonderful idyllic get-away from it all! We’ve all loved the hot tub, the joys of a small farm including the amazing eggs and the friendliness and hospitality of Michelle.  Thank you – we’d love to come back again.

Thank you for a fantastic holiday.  It really is a cosy home away from home with EVERYTHING (& more) we needed.  Great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary.  Will return with baby in tow! Loved it!

Another fantastic stay at the barn.  We have had a brilliant week (again) and have loved every minute of our stay.  The cottage is perfect and filled with everything we needed (and more) to make a perfect holiday.  Thank you for our welcome pack – it was the icing on the cake – I am sure we will be back again!

Our 3rd visit – twice in one year! So easy to understand why Michelle has so many repeat bookings.  Its a beautiful barn, Cornwall is fantastic and Michelle a wonderful and generous host.  We feel like we are staying with a friend…needless to say we will not leave it too long before returning.

Finally we are back again! You know people say you should never go back – well don’t believe them! If you are returning to Middle Lanherne Barn, then you know you are in for another wonderful time.  We just slipped right in to it again and boy did it feel good!

Michelle, our heartfelt thanks for making us so welcome.

Our second stay here and yet again we had the most relaxing holiday & ridiculously warm and sunny weather  so we are going home with a tan!! We felt right at home as soon as we arrived thanks to Michelle’s hospitality; she really does think of everything and makes you feel very welcome.  Fresh duck eggs were amazing as were the vast fields for Nell to run and sniff in. See you again!

Michelle, your warm hearted hospitality and personality made my first time to Cornwall and experience never to forget.  Of course there was the cats & the beautiful scenery to top that …. along with that bubbling thing in the garden!

What can we say that hasn’t already been said? The barn is the perfect “home away from home”, the hot tub so relaxing after a tough day of sightseeing or hiking with the dog (Our favourite walk was from Mawgan Porth beach along the headlands to Bedruthan Steps – Michelle’s suggestion!)

We all loved coming home to the barn at the end of the day.

This week was just what we needed! The barn is a comfortable and relaxing place to stay – we particularly enjoyed our late afternoons in the hot tub.  Thank you for your superb hospitality  – nothing was too much trouble.  Nell loved trying to escape the field and torment the donkeys too! Best holiday in the UK – we will be back.

A brilliant location and setting – very relaxing. Best place we have stayed for the dogs and friendly service.

It was wonderful to arrive to a home cooked meal ready and waiting. Especially after 8 hours travelling. Nothing was too much trouble for Michelle – best holiday in the UK for many years – looking forward to a second visit.

The Newman Family | September 2013

We have been looking forward to our visit all year, we were not disappointed. A real home from home and we wanted for nothing. Michelle & Darren made us feel really welcome. The peace and quiet setting are going to be very much missed. We’ll be back again for sure!

The Ryan Family | August 2013

Fantastic holiday, gone far too quick. We’ve been on a few holidays in barns & cottages and this is by far the best we have stayed in, everything catered for – couldn’t ask for more!

It has been great! We have loved everything about the lovely Barn. Archer will never stop talking about collecting the eggs – We will be back!!!

We have had such a good time at the barn, we have not wanted to go touring.  You certainly picked a wonderful spot and equipped the barn to the highest of standards.

We love the donks and the chickens and the views – and especially the peace & quiet.  It has, without doubt, been our best Cornish holiday ever – and we think we know a thing or two about Cornwall as we have been visiting here since 1967!

Many, many thanks for all that you have provided and for making us feel so welcome.

Ken & Sal | June 2013

Perfect location for a relaxing holiday. The welcome pack was brilliant & so were the additional eggs supplied during the week. Spent every night in the hot tub – bliss!

Couldn’t wish for a better holiday home – we will be back next year! The best we’ve stayed in EVER!!

We have had a thoroughly excellent stay! The dog (Mist) loved having her own field and having the mini donkeys to tease her!!!

I have had a fab time especially the hot tub and donkeys – Nathan

Excellent location – shame to go home! Relaxing and enjoyable, comfort second to none! (Home from Home!) x

The Donkeys were so friendly and lovable and getting to hand feed them and put them to bed was great! – Hannah

The Colleys | April 2013

This is by far the best holiday home we have ever stayed in! Everything you can think of is provided and everything is of very good quality! Thanks for all the tips of things to visit and places to see.  It’s a pity that this place is so far away from our home in Belgium…..we would come back very often if it wasn’t.

If you want peace and calm in a beautiful place with all places accessible by car, not too far away this is perfect. Its totally set up for a family with children of all ages and Michelle and Darren a superb hosts who have thought of every last detail! Don’t hesitate… book now! Because I guarantee once people get wind of this place it will never be free again!!!

“We absolutely loved staying at the Barn. Michelle and Darren were friendly, kind and helpful. The Barn itself is gorgeous with every convenience we could have hoped for! It’s clean, light, airy and has beautiful views across the fields. It’s a lovely quiet place but close enough to all of the nearby towns, beaches and children’s activity centres. It’s also child-friendly and we found the holiday really easy. The kids had a fabulous time and are in love with the chickens and the next-door horses. Our dog had a great time too and enjoyed running around in the fields. We’d recommend the Barn to our friends and will definitely be returning. ”
