Comfortable accommodation. Peaceful surroundings. Only downside was the total infestation of flies which could not be helped I suppose and squeaky floors. Other than that I would definitely go back.
Many thanks Ian. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay.
Apologies about the flies - this was an autumn booking with a change of weather and in rural locations they can come in side at certain times. We have not once in our 6 yrs of being open had similar issues so our apologies.
Kernow hidden gem
great little place to stay.
everything you need and want.
a bit out in the sticks ( most roads around here are very narrow and curvy.. a bit scary at 1st )
but a great place , nonetheless thank you will stay with you again when we next come to Kernow
Secluded cosy cottage with everything you could want.
Fernleigh barn is a delightful cottage with panoramic views and a well tended garden. It is tastefully decorated and well furnished and equipped throughout, with central heating and plenty of hot water. Altogether a very comfortable and cosy holiday home that I would happily choose again.
Alistair Lockwood was a helpful and welcoming host who on our approximate arrival patiently guided us to the cottage through the maze of local lanes. This is a great location for seaside trips north and south and there are plenty of inland places to visit as well. Thoroughly recommended!
Many thanks - we are delighted you enjoyed your stay.
Comfortable stay in a great location.
The barn was beautiful, well equipped, beautifully decorated. The location of the barn was picturesque and relaxing. Alistair made us welcome, without encroaching on our privacy
Many thanks for your kind feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We would be delighted to host you again.
Great for a quiet small break
The beds were comfortable and the lounge and kitchen well furnished.
Hosts were charming.
Bit tricky to find but Alastair was very helpful getting through the the last bit. Thanks very much.
The barn is centrally positioned half way between the north and south coasts. Falmouth on the south coast is 15 mins drive as are most of the north coast beaches.
Located half way between Truro and Falmouth and can easily access both with a local train and easy road links.
Situated right in the same valley as the Bissoe trail allows unrivalled access to its routes including trail and off road mountain biking from the house, and an easy terrain coast to coast path. Perranwell village is 2km walk hosting a pub, post office and small shop.
