Barvanjack description

Holiday home
Barvanjack is a hideaway cottage minutes from the picturesque Helford River and Gillan Creek, set in a beautiful rural location with complete privacy and spectacular countryside views, just over a mile from Manaccan village. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms and can sleep six people. There is a separate sitting room with cosy wood burning stove, conservatory, dining room and kitchen, plus family bathroom. The gently sloping south-facing garden is a lovely feature with patio for alfresco dining, a small ornamental stream and covered pond (please supervise very young children) and a terraced lawn. Children will love to run free in the small orchard and grassy area opposite the cottage. Guests have use of an outhouse perfect for storing surfboards, wetsuits and beach equipment after a fun day at the beach. Perfect for family and friends seeking a country escape, Barvanjack ticks all the boxes.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

A little gem! We thought it might be a bit remote but it was fine and we enjoyed the countryside, the coast, and the high quality of the pubs and restaurants within a few miles.

A very comfortable cottage with excellent facilities, including thoughtful touches like a cream tea on arrival and board games and DVD's available to use.. A little remote, but this makes it very peaceful.

The most comfortable well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in .... The most comfortable well equipped cottage we have ever stayed in The owners had thought of everything The layout of the cottage worked well for the three generations of our family staying there Parking was good and access to all the nearby attractions and facilities was very good The weather was perfect My only small comment is that with the hot weather the fridge in the kitchen was quite small for 6 of us and with no nearby shops daily shopping was sometimes difficult Otherwise the cottage was comfortable clean and welcoming

Hi, we were a little surprised at the remoteness.. Manaccan is 2 miles away as the footpaths shown on the OS map are not maintained or visible. I think you should remind people of the narrowness of the roads as they can be scary to drive certainly the road that Barvanjack is on. We must complement the owners on the house. Everything is of good quality and very comfortable and the garden is wonderful. Thank you

The cottage was perfect for us.. I don't think the description does justice to the rural location or the lovely decor. Only small gripe - please make clear there will be no toilet paper in the house on arrival. Easy to take but difficult arriving after a 9 hour drive with two young children to find out.

Well equipped house with lovely views, situated in a very quiet location about 1.. 5 miles along a narrow lane. A place for a peaceful, relaxing holiday. A map of the local area would be appreciated. A negative was that there was no key to the external conservatory doors, a similar key to another door did not work. This meant that there was no direct access to the patio - which was disappointing. Eventually the problem was resolved by my phoning the agents; a locksmith came later in the day to sort the problem and the locks were replaced, as it seems as though the original key had been lost. We had a lovely week, with good weather - enjoying the garden, though this requires some attention.

First problem we encountered was being unable to access cottage.. We were given incorrect code number for keysafe from you and when we phoned to get correct number it was still difficult to access but managed after speaking with owners who advised us of the knack to open box. Unable to use conservatory door to patio and it transpired we were not left the correct key. However, the cottage was absolutely stunning and the most comfortable we have ever stayed in, and we have stayed in more than a dozen in this area over the last thirty years. We will definitely go back to “Barvanjack” and hopefully use the patio area! A wonderful week.
