Another great stay
Our second stay in The Barn, and just as good as the first. In fact more so as the first was at the time of Covid precautions. This time we got to know the owners, Leslie and Johnny a little better, and what a pleasure that was. They really are great hosts, friendly, helpful, and just nice people! The Barn itself is great, very comfortable and with everything you could possibly need. The garden, summerhouse, and lake views make it a special place. We hope to be back. Thank you Leslie and Johnny.

Great stay
It's no accident that The Barn has five star reviews all the way. My wife and I are just back from a five night stay and it was just perfect. A warm welcome from Leslie and Johnny, who are great hosts. On hand, but not intrusive in any way. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and very well equipped, and the welcome pack was, well, very welcome! The position overlooking the lake, the beautiful gardens, and the summerhouse made for a very relaxing break. I wasn't surprised to hear from Leslie that some guests pretty well don't leave the property during their stay. You really would travel a long way to match the tranquility. We did get out and about but The Barn was a great pace to return to - warm and comfortable on an autumn evening. We hope to be back. The gardens, which Leslie has created from scratch in eight years, were impressive in the autumn. They must be stunning in the spring and summer. On a more mundane note, Covid precautions were very much adhered to - really, every detail during our stay was spot on. Thanks Leslie and Johnny.

Comfortable and in beautiful surroundings
Our stay in The Barn proved to be a most relaxing and enjoyable week, thanks to the beautiful, peaceful surroundings, comfortable interior and welcoming hosts. It is located in the most beautiful grounds, next to a small lake and with extensive gardens which we were tempted to stay in instead of exploring the countryside nearby! My wife is envious of the size of some of the plants and flowers. But we did get out and about, and you can reach many attractions in under 30 minutes drive, or even walk to the nearby beach and along the coastal path. Inside the cottage is very comfortable. The heating warms the place up quickly, the WiFi is fast and there's a decent smart TV with Netflix, iPlayer and broadcast channels etc. plus a DAB radio. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you can think of or need (except a dishwasher but it's no big deal), the bed is very comfortable and the modern bathroom has plenty of space and a great shower. Although not a large property, the design and layout makes good use of the available space, it was no problem for us even though I am very tall and we always pack too much. The overall attention to detail and quality was evident. Also the communication and Covid measures were efficient and reassuring and we were able to get a Tesco delivery no problem (it seemed to be out of Ocado's area). Leslie and Johnny were there to greet us and on hand for a friendly chat and some local advice and also they gave us full use of the summer house which was very generous considering it presumably can't be shared at the moment. I can't think of any negatives really, obviously it depends what you want from a holiday. For a couple with a car and a love of the outdoors, it definitely works!

Heaven on Earth!
Leslie and Jonny create the most magnificent home away from home with their beautiful 'Tresowes Green The Barn' - we left feeling like fresh rejuvenated humans after a long weekend stay in their gorgeous surroundings and sparkling company. If you are looking for a short or a long getaway to recharge then I can't recommend 'Tresowes Green The Barn' enough! Enjoy! :)

Perfect!
We booked this after our trip to Florida was cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak. As it was a rush booking, it was a bit of a stab in the dark. My wife and I could not have been happier after the disappointment of our cancelled trip. Anyone who finds fault with this accommodation is just nit picking. Plenty of space to lounge in the cottage and in the summer house. A fully equipped kitchen if you want to cook - (This became essential as the local restaurants to had to close during our stay). A dining area and, a TV with NETFLIX - which was a 1st for us! Unless you are a keen walker, a car is probably essential. The quiet location, by a lake, is about half a mile from the main road and mid way between Helston & Penzance. Loads of good restaurants within about a 10 minute drive. If you want night life, find something else. If you want a quiet, comfortable accommodation, with stunning surroundings, this is the one.

Absolutely superb
This place was just heaven. From the beautifully appointed “barn” which had more than enough space for this space seeking couple, the lovely hospitality and helpfulness of the two hosts, the gorgeous gardens and location and a divine summer house which we were offered full access to. Just enchanting. Have enjoyed most of our accom on this trip but this is beyond. Cannot rave enough. Thank you to the beautiful hosts. Hope to see you in Oz sometime.

Excellent property, very helpful hosts!
Stayed here for a fortnight's holiday to explore Cornwall. Situated in lovely grounds by a lake, the Barn was really cosy, ideally placed and the hosts were really nice and so helpful. Just like staying with old friends! Kingsize bed was really comfy after a long day out and the walk-in wet room was great! Excellent WiFi & smart TV too... Highly Recommended ...

Relaxing hideaway in beautiful surroundings.
A wonderfully relaxing 3 day break. Leslie and Jonny were very welcoming and we were very appreciative of the treats left for our arrival. The Barn was beautifully clean. The bed was comfy and there was everything required for our stay. It was fabulous to sit out in the summerhouse overlooking the lake. Lots to do in the area and the restaurant recommendations were spot on - wonderful food and surroundings. We really do hope to return.

Beautiful place that mixes a high quality stay with a friendly relaxed attitude
This was our second stay at The Barn. As I got out of the car on arrival I could feel the tension melt away. The garden is a delight, beautiful to walk around and look at but, with just a little care, a great place for kids and dogs to play. I love the views out over the lake. The Barn is small but well kitted out to high standards. The location is good for beaches and coastal path walks. The owners are friendly and welcoming. I would recommend it without hesitation.
