        A fabulous Barn for a Family Get Together!

        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hendra Farm. We stayed at Piglet barn which accommodated 6 adults 3 children and a 1yr old. The barn was very spacious with a great size living area (with a TV and a lovely sized dinning table) for us all to spend time in. The kitchen was fully equipped with a kettle, dishwasher, microwave, cooker, oven, toaster and two Fridge- Freezers. It has ample amounts of cups, glasses, plates, bowls, cutlery and pots and pans to cook with. There's 2 great sized bathrooms (1 included a bath tub). The shower is amazing!! It really has great water pressure!! All 3 bedrooms are a great size with good amount of storage space and all three rooms have a TV. The beds are super comfortable. You have a washing machine inside the barn that you can use. You can dry these in the garden or they do have a tumble dryer that you can use (you need 20p coins to get it to work though) There is a lovely little garden space that our children used and liked. They do have a field nearby that they say you can use to play football in. They had enough parking spaces outside of the barn. It really is home away from home! Checking in and out was very simple. Tom and Bridget are such a lovely couple. They are so warm, friendly and approachable. We needed some help and they sorted it out very quickly and spent some time with us explaining the history of the farm. They let us view the smaller barn and even that had a spacious living area. One of the many things I liked about this barn is that Tom had invested the time to restore and renovated the old farm barns himself. They have a folder inside the barn that have pictures that show their journey in making the barns. They have a visitors book in the barn and we read every comment and all the feed back was great feed back. I would highly recommend this barn to anyone who wants to get away and spend some quality time with friends or family. In terms of location- Hendra farm is at the top end of Cornwall and is about 1hour 45mins from Lands end. You're about 30-40mins from Newquay There are two fantastic beaches near by that were recommended to us that we too would highly recommend. Polzeath Beach or Trebarwith Beach! Trebarwith is a bit smaller but has so much character. Tom and Bridget- Once again thank you so much for being very welcoming and friendly. We had an amazing time and we were super comfortable. We genuinely hope we have the privilege of coming back again to stay at Hendra Farm. x

          Clean, Comfortable and Roomy

          We enjoyed our week long stay in the Piglet's unit at Hendra Farm. There was ample room for 5-6 adults and two small children. The kitchen was very well equipped for cooking family meals with plenty of space around the dining table for extra cousins who stopped by once or twice. Tom and Bridget are friendly and accommodating hosts. They even provided a box of toys for our grandsons. We would definitey stay in this rental again.

          5/5 Excellent

            Lovely house for a big group

            The house proved to be very comfortable for a group of 9 friends. Tidy and clean and I really need one of these beds at home

              A fabulous location for a large family gathering

              We rented all three cottages over Christmas for a large family get together. Having all three cottages worked brilliantly for the thirteen of us (ranging in age from 70-3!). The largest of the three barns, Piglets, was big enough to accommodate us all eating together and had more than enough crockery, cutlery, glasses etc. The open plan living space was ample for us to congregate and watch TV or play games during the wetter afternoons. All the cottages were lovely and clean and well decorated, and the bathrooms were particularly lovely. There are plenty of great places to visit around the area such as Boscastle, the Eden Project, Rock, Padstow and loads of fabulous local beaches, especially Polzeath. Everyone had a fabulous time and I’m sure we’ll all be back at some point.
