About Ken Evans

I have owned Hendra Barns for more than 17 years and over that time have put my heart and soul into this beautiful place. It has been a joy to work on these old buildings and bring them back to life. Hendra keeps me busy with the every day jobs. It's a pleasure as the setting is peaceful as well as relaxing, I am always around to ask advice as I live 200 yards away up the lane in Keepers Cottage.

Ken Evans purchased this bungalow in 1995

Why Ken Evans chose Newquay

The Old Coach House will not disappoint you with it's walled garden and great views over the beautiful valley. It's spacious Living area and Kitchen. The bedrooms make for the perfect stay. I feel in love with it and it hasn't changed from the first time I saw it with all it's charm and character. The place will only have a good effect on you, if it's time to relax and soak up the atmosphere you be in the right place, Cornwall has so much to offer and it's all here in a short drive away but want to get away from it all then The Old Coach House is the perfect spot for you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Miss Smith -July 2014

"Perfect for holiday makers that have dogs it is set in the right environment to catch sun and let dogs roam free without worry. Peaceful setting with good wildlife (peacocks)"

Mrs Simon - June 2014

"We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was comfortable, equipment extraordinary, linen and towels of excellent quality. We and our three Dogs spent much time in the completely enclosed garden. Location is ideally situated, making it easy to explore all of Cornwall. Great welcome pack with everything you need in the first morning - and more. Owner Ken was very friendly, at our late arrival at 11 pm he picked us up and lead the way to the barn."

Ms Harris - April 2014

"Being able to use the Kennels on site gave peace of mind when visiting those sites that do not welcome our four legged friends. It must be mentioned how accessible the coach house is for those with walking difficulties. The owner could not be more helpful and what a beautiful setting."
