Little Hendra - Hendra Barns resort, in Mitchell, near Newquay, Cornwall, England - Luxury Converted Barn Located In A Peaceful Setting Two Minutes Drive From A30
About Ken Evans
I have owned Hendra Barns for more than 20 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.
Why Ken Evans chose Newquay
Little Hendra is part of Hendra Barns. I converted it at the same time as the largest property, Hendra Barn, about 20 years ago to the same high standard. It is a very warm barn, peaceful and relaxing .

Great location, fantastic setting
Better than the pictures suggest. The barn is set in fantasticly landcaped grounds, and have everything needed for a self catering stay. Lovely touches made me feel really welcome. I miss the baby pheasants!
On arrival key in door and property clean, warm and welcoming. Ingredients for Cornish tea scones, jam and clotted cream waiting for us. Beautiful peaceful location. Enjoyed the house martins nesting over bedroom window.
Lovely view down to lake. Did some fishing in the evenings although my husband only seemed to catch big fish when I wasn’t there which of course he had to return immediately to the water before I could see them!
Beds comfortable. Had all the facilities we needed.
We were in the area to visit the Eden project which was amazing. As the Annual pass costs the same as a days entry we had the annual pass and spread the visit over two days as a lot of walking and the rain forest dome as you would expect was very hot and humid. Little Hendra would be our first choice of property if we were to visit the area again and if we plan any extended family visits to the area we would certainly go for the attached big hendra (sleeps 10 I think), and looks amazing.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience Nikki. We're so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and we'd love to see you again.
Lovely home away from home
Perfect Cornwall retreat, beautiful grounds perfect for the little one to run around. Was so nice to come back from our daily adventure. Beds were comfy, amenities were good. No real complaints, WiFi was a little slow but understandable being out in the countryside, wasn’t what the holiday was about anyway.
Would definitely recommend little Hendra for a nice cosy retreat.
If/when we venture to Cornwall again we would certainly go back.
A lovely cosy property in quiet location
Very relaxing. The road to Little Hendra isn’t the best and is best suited to a 4 by 4 but once you get to the property you won’t be disappointed.
We have just enjoyed a lovely week at Little Hendra. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped for our needs and we were given a warm welcome by the owners Ken and Maggie. We appreciated the welcome pack and the flowers. The cottage is in a beautiful setting and we loved the bird life including the resident peacock. The conservatory and terrace enjoy full evening sun. It was very easy to travel to many destinations in Cornwall from here, such as the Eden Project.
Thank you Gerald for sharing you experience. Hope to see you again soon!
A charming, tranquil gem of place.
The property is a real home from home, a perfect retreat after a busy day at the beach. Quiet and tranquil, I would recommend this propertyas the owners have pretty much though of everything to make your stay enjoyable.
