Brock Barn Cottage is a wonderful find, ideal for a base to explore this part of Cornwall.
The cottage was well equipped and had everything anyone could have needed. The welcome was not just friendly, it was superb. Added to this a lovely hamper, which was ideal for us.
The cottage was warm, (much needed in January). We will visit again
Perfect location, combining the right amount of isolation and accessibility.. Easy access to Eden project, Lost Gardens of Helligan, Padstow, Restormel Castle, Lanhydrock, Polperro, Looe
Lovely owner who was very helpful. Nice to have had a welcome pack, which was much appreciated.
Wonderful views of open countryside from the cottage.
We would certainly stay here again when we next holiday in Cornwall.
Dr Sissou, August 2020
We’ve just returned from a week at Brocks Barn and will definitely be returning.. The barn was nicely decorated, clean and had everything you could think of, including a lovely welcome hamper on arrival.
It was warm, welcoming and in a lovely quiet location. The hosts were really helpful and we very much enjoyed our stay.
Although you are away from everything the location is great because most places of interest are only a short drive away.
Can only say what a unique & very clean barn conversion that made us feel that the occomadation was home from home in these crazy times of 2020, a very relaxing stay with fantastic views of rolling cornish countryside with the bonus of views from the lounge room of baby chick Woodpeckers and various song birds feeding from the bird feeder, the barn is in an ideal location to visit Fowey, Charlestown Padstow & Port issac ect with fantastic beaches shops and towns that have been covid 19 managed correctly, thanks once again Michelle.
Mrs Connell, August 2020
Quiet and comfortable with an entertaining group of birds and squirrels on the bird feeder outside the window.. A perfect bolt hole to visit family and friends post-lockdown
Mrs Price, July 2020
A delightful property and it was a pleasure to come 'home' to Brock's Barn after a day exploring Cornwall.. Centrally placed for visiting areas of interest. Good eateries a short drive away.
It was very peaceful, comfortable and a joy to come back in the evenings.. We ended up calling it home. Couldn't have been better.
Excellent accommodation in a great location.. A warm welcome from our hosts and wonderfully entertaining wildlife.
Unfortunately my husband left behind some shirts he had hung on the back of the door and missed packing as we left.. I contacted by leaving a text message and voicemail to ask if we could pay for them to be returned. Some acknowledgment would have been nice even if it was to say they could not do anything. For this reason I would not book this place again.
Lovely cottage and very peaceful; Michelle was extremely kind and helpful.. Would highly recommend Brocks Barn.
This property that we rented was absolutely amazing and the host was fantastic from start to finish..
The cottage was cosy and warm.. The owners helpful and welcoming. It was an ideal hideaway, yet provided easy access to all areas of interest from Stately Homes, to coast, to pretty harbours and wonderful Gardens. An excellent position for touring this area of Cornwall.
Brock's Barn is a haven of tranquility.. Off main roads, tucked away and surrounded by countryside. It's extremely quiet, wildlife is about all you hear. A traditional barn with exposed beams, the facilities are comfortable and more than adequate. We visited in February, and have been cosy and warm. I can recommend this as a beautiful cosy quiet cottage to base a holiday, we travelled as far as Porthleven on the south coast, which was an hour away.
This really was a fantastic few days away for our 25th anniversary.. the lady made us feel really welcome
nothing was to much trouble
only wish we could have had longer
highly recommend this property
& will hopefully going again in the near future
thank you so much
Mr & Mrs goodger
We had a good break at the barn in July 2017.. Michelle the owner was lovely and very accomodating. Nice clean accomodation and a washing machine as well, which was useful.
Property owners were a very nice family who went out of their way to make you feel at home
Spotless and tasteful,Lovely owner, all perfect for a break, we will be going back
Lovely well-equipped modern cottage.. No wi-fi available, but phone signal and 4G good.
Great family who own this
place will come back here for sure!
Our 19 year old daughter joined my husband and I for a lovely week at Brocks Barn. The cottage is a beautiful barn conversion with a fabulous skylight in the high ceiling in the lounge room which not only bathes the room in fabulous light but also keeps the room lovely and cozy. Michelle met us and showed us how everything worked. The cottage is very well equipped and there was not a mark on any of the paint work. Everything looked brand new. Michelle provided us with a lovely welcome basket and there were mini bottles of toiletries in the bathroom. The second bedroom was perfect for our daughter. The location was superb as it was an easy drive to just about anywhere in Cornwall. In fact, we traveled as far afield as Land's End. The approach to the cottage down a narrow country lane meant that there was no traffic noise - only the occasional car from a neighbouring property and a few people on horseback.
Our first stay in a Sykes Cottage and we were not disappointed. We'll be staying in cottages wherever possible now instead of going to hotels. Our host was very welcoming. Brocks Barn was in beautiful surroundings with several popular destinations nearby.
we've just had a week at Brocks Barn and I have to say we had a wonderful time, the barn is excellent and we highly recommend it, everything you need is in the barn.
we highly recommend Brocks Barn and the owners are an absolute delight and nothing is too much trouble.
wonderful place and wonderful owners and cats and chickens :)
Brocks Barn is in an excellent location for any journey within Cornwall, as it is so central. The Barn was well equipped and it was very peaceful at all times. The owner was the perfect on-site hostess, available but never obtrusive.
A nice friendly greeting from the owners and it was a nice, relaxing place for a holiday away from it all.
A lovely quiet location, with wondrous wildlife and birds. All facilities were top notch.
Brocks barn was lovely it was as good as pictured on your site and we had an enjoyable break. I would highly recommend it to anybody.
This was a lovely property and the hosts were very helpful. I would certainly recommend this property to others. It's in a great location.
An excellent property to stay in, nice and warm for winter. Each time we saw the owner she asked us if everything was ok. The views were lovely and we enjoyed the birds feeding outside and the wildlife, pheasants, squirrels and chickens. Centrally placed for a less commercialised Cornwall. We will definitely visit again.
The owner was very welcoming, very friendly and informative. The cottage was well positioned for visiting a lot of appealing places. Altogether a very good holiday, certainly inspired to return.
The location of the property was central and a perfect base to explore Cornwall. It was also very peaceful with great views and plenty of wildlife. The barn has been beautifully converted into a perfect holiday home and was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. We would definitely recommend Brocks Barn.
Loved the cottage, ideal property great conversion. Welcoming owner and chickens!
This cottage is in a quiet location and is comfortable, clean and spacious enough for 3 people. The family are very welcoming and very helpful with things for you to see and do. Would definitely recommend this cottage to family and friends.
I beautiful retreat in the most peaceful countryside. The barn is centrally located for all destinations within Cornwall.
We enjoyed our week at Brocks Barn. No complaints at all. Everything was clean and we were very comfortable. Just as we expected. Would recommend to friends.
We wanted a quiet location to relax and unwind, and Brocks Barn proved to be exactly what we wanted. The cottage is comfortable, spotlessly clean, and the welcome from the owners lovely. The wildlife, especially the birds were amazing, and we would come again just to see them. The welcome hamper when we arrived was very impressive, we especially appreciated the local produce in it, and the owners were on hand to happily advise on local attractions. This is the best cottage we have ever rented, and we certainly plan to return as soon as possible!
Felt like home, very friendly hosts.
Lovely house. Absolutely clean and perfect condition. Owners very warm and very nice people. Good location. We are more than happy. 100% recommended.
Lovely location. The owners very friendly and helpful. Everything was perfect.
Lovely welcome, cottage easy to live in, nice kitchen with good fridge and a separate utility room and washing machine. Great location to explore Cornwall. On colder days the electric fire was great. Loved watching the birds on the feeders outside the cottage.
An absolutely perfect home for holidays. Good place for visiting Cornwall.
Myself, my mother and my 8 year old daughter stayed in the lovely Brocks Barn this summer. Perfectly located for all the day trips we wanted to do, including Eden (twice).
A very well presented two bedroom barn, all on one level, so perfect for my mother. The lovely welcome pack of milk, bread and some goodies was perfect after a 6 hour drive down to Cornwall.
Sitting watching the beautiful birds on the feeder was a real highlight. Such a stunning setting, so quiet and relaxing.
The owners was so helpful and friendly, I would highly recommend this lovely barn for a trip to Cornwall.
The cottage was charming, exceptionally clean and well equipped. Very pleasant landlady provided lovely welcome hamper.
A lovely barn conversion very comfortable and cosy, every need was taken care of. Would highly recommend this delightful holiday cottage.
Wow, well what can I say about Brocks Barn? I don't think there are enough nice words to describe everything about our stay at Brocks Barn.
We arrived early and were greeted by Michelle who showed us around the cottage. Not only were we shown around but Michelle also discussed various ideas of things to do while in town which was great considering we had a 5 year old to keep entertained.
The cottage was stunning inside and out. There was not a mark or a speck of dust anywhere and this is a credit to Michelle's hard work and commitment.
Being only a 2 minute drive from the lovely little town of Lostwithiel was perfect, plenty of restaurants and things to do. But this was also a great central location for Bodmin, the Eden Project, Restormal Castle and many more.
The welcome hamper left by Michelle for us (and all guests I assume) was great as well. Was just a shame my partner is 7 months pregnant so we couldn't enjoy the wine.
Brocks Barn will always hold great memories for me as it was where I proposed to my girlfriend while watching a meteor shower!!!
I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone and everyone. You really could not find a better cottage, owner or location.
Thank you Michelle and family for letting us stay :)
The location of the property was quiet with countryside and wild life abounding, but still within easy access of many attractions. The owners were most welcoming, without being intrusive and their gift of a substantial welcome pack made for a lovely beginning to the holiday. The owners had obviously thought of all the possible details and needs of occupiers and the conversion had been carried out to a very high standard.
The barn was perfect for our little family. It was VERY clean and well presented. The location was excellent and allowed us to travel to all the places we wanted to visit.
Loved the cottage. Owner was a lovely person to deal with, much thought went into our arrival and stay! Thanks for a great week!
It was in a lovely position, watching the birds was great, the owners kindly replenished bird food daily which was needed and much appreciated. Lovely quiet spot. Ideal holiday location. Lovely people too.
Brocks Barn is a real 'gem' and in an ideal location for exploring Cornwall and Devon. The accommodation is all you could wish for and the thoughtful touches provided by the owners were much appreciated.
It was good accommodation. Many hours were spent watching the birds on the feeding station. The owner was so welcoming and left lots of provisions and toiletries.
We were greeted by the lovely owner Michelle who showed us round the property and made us feel at home. A lovely touch was the welcome basket filled with goodies such as Cornish biscuits, fresh baked bread, local eggs, bottle of wine etc. A very good start to the holiday!
The cottage was lovely inside - very light and airy. Lovely bathroom with a good shower and bedroom with a very comfy bed.
The location is amazing down a very narrow country lane (in fact I did wonder if we were driving down a private driveway at one stage!) The cottage overlooks open countryside and has the added advantage of a well stocked bird feeder right in front of the patio window - very entertaining whilst eating your breakfast or having a G&T; in the evening.
We really loved this cottage and the location (good for visiting all the sights) and are hoping to return next year.
It was peaceful but within reach of lots of amenities.
Comfortable, relaxing holiday, in a beautiful setting within easy reach of a variety of locations and activities.
A beautiful clean cottage with lovely hosts! Quiet and lots of lovely birds, squirrels and pheasants to see.
Lovely little cottage with friendly owners. They provided us with a great little hideaway.
This property is ideal for a quiet break, near most attractions. The accommodation is very good, comfortable and clean. We highly recommend it.
We had a very lovely welcome and the house is so beautiful - it was great!
Very handy for a number of towns and the coast, but it was in the country so was nice and quiet.
I was made to feel welcome and my privacy was respected. The cottage was very comfortable, compact and yet plenty of space. It was a good location for exploring the area as I had not been there before.
Had a lovely week at the cottage. Home from home. Very quite and relaxing. The owners where really nice. And it was in a good location. Will be going back again
Peace and quite, and the view from the cottage was lovely. An ideal cottage for seeing local places of interest. The welcome pack was an added bonus and a very warm welcome. We will book again!
Very friendly owners, lovely quiet position. The conversion of the barn had been well planned, with plenty of room in the shower etc. Lack of low level hooks for shorter people otherwise ideal for us. Never a dull moment watching the birds visiting the well stocked feeders - siskins, goldfinches etc and the tame pheasant !
Brocks Barn was one of the best cottages we have stayed in. It was central to so many attractions. Another superb Sykes cottage!
A well designed conversion in a good position for visiting all parts of Cornwall with excellent hosts. The location was very quiet and the birds were interesting and entertaining to watch. The large bed was very comfortable and the bedding was just right for the hot weather.
The warm welcome we received from the owners and family. The fact that they were there if needed but felt like you were alone. Overall a great place.
Brocks Barn is an ideal location for visiting all areas of Cornwall. It was peaceful and a good variety of wild birds could be seen feeding just outside the french doors.
The accommodation was perfect, everything you could want was there. The owner was very helpful and really nice. We enjoyed looking at all the wild life and the lovely cats. We were also very lucky with the weather, which made our stay perfect.
Superb welcome pack and very friendly welcome. Light, airy, spacious accommodation with lovely view and ideally situated for visits within a 30 mile radius.
The cottage was a perfect getaway, where you felt at home. It was beautiful, clean and well maintained. The owners were very welcoming and helpful and wanted to ensure you had everything to make your stay comfortable.
Surprised by the excellent standard and comfort of the property and the friendliness of the owner. Made very welcome.

Beautiful cottage - very high standard of decor and furnishings. Lovely location for North and South coast of Cornwall.
We loved the situation of Brocks Barn. We were met and made very welcome by the owner. Brocks Barn is very central for places to visit - the birds were incredible. Just a lovely atmosphere.
Excellent accomodation. Very clean & comfortable. Very welcome food hamper & smellies. Very friendly & helpful family.
Mr Mrs Roberts
The owner kindly provided a lovely 'welcome pack' of groceries. We also appreciated being entertained by the birds on the bird feeders! The location was very convenient for key sites.
Extremely comfortable for two as the second bedroom could be used for storing clothes etc - no hanging facility in main bedroom. The owner was very helpful, the cottage very clean and the location was ideal for us as it was central to the area we wished to explore. The birdlife attracted to the garden was a bonus, all in all an experience we would wish to repeat.
We spent the best holiday we ever had!!!
The barn was very cosy. The owner of the house was very friendly, very obliging.
We are spending a lot of time in telling about the great holiday. And we will kept it in nice memerys.
We would recommend the house in every time.
And we wish we could come to Cornwall one time again...
We wish you all merry christmas and a happy new year!!!
Mike, Karin + Vicky
Following narrow roads behind high hedges we found a hidden jewel - the Brok's Barn. This cosy cottage has enchanted us from the first moment on. The warm welcoming made us feel like home soon.
The cottage is situated perfectly to discover Kernow near and far as well as the vicinal Southwest of England.
We are grateful for our time spending here and the hospitality we received.
The cottage was close to Lostwithiel and Fowey, which were major bonus points.
It was lovely and quiet set in the countryside.The owners were polite and made you feel very welcome and comfortable. Thoughtfully they gave us a welcome pack, with everything we could need.
A great stay and we would recommend it highly.
Extremely helpful and co-operative landlady.
The countryside setting, wildlife, domestic and farm animals. The privacy. The close location to the coast. The warm welcome and the welcome groceries.
People in Cornwall were always friendly and helpful, especially our property owner who gave us a very warm welcome.
Landscape and sights were beautiful and gorgeous.
Beautifully presented barn with excellent facilities, a perfect base for our holiday with easy access to all major Cornish attractions and beyond. Lovely welcome pack on arrival and very helpful owners. Would definitely go back.
The friendliness of the owners of the property. The location was excellent.
We were in a good location to access areas of attraction and villages.
This was an outstanding property in a beautiful area. The property is decorated and equipped to a very high standard. The owner was very hospitable and helpful. It was easy to reach the tourist attractions of north Cornwall.
Owners are very kind people. They provided us with essential food on our arrival plus wine...
The area, the barn, the owner, the landscape, the beaches and nice English people!
The Owners of Brocks Barn made us feel very welcome on arrival. Their welcome pack was also a very nice addition. The nearby wildlife was also a big plus.
The bird feeding station outside the lounge and bedroom window attracted many varieties and gives great pleasure.
We went with a view to playing golf and managed to play 5 times. Lostwithiel Lanhydrock golf courses were within 10 minutes drive whilst there were 3 courses in and around St Austell all within 30 minutes drive. The weather was excellent which made the holiday. The accommodation really was 5 Star. The cottage is situated in a quiet lane with fantastic views over the Cornwall countryside.
The property was of an excellent standard and everything you could possibly need is provided. Location was ideal, situated in a quiet spot with lovely views across the fields, but also within easy reach of lots of the main attractions in this area. All in all an excellent place to spend a few days, highly recommended.
Loved it, great location and immaculate cottage.
This cottage is breathtaking! We received a very warm welcome and a package with some nice goodies. We definitely recommend this place if you are looking for some peace and quiet in one of the most beautiful areas in Britain.
The whole weekend break was fantastic because of the atmosphere, location and first class accommodation. There was not one thing which we didn't like...... except that we didn't like going home after the short weekend break!
We thought the Barn was stylishly converted and well located in a lovely part of Cornwall.
Very warm welcome and all round possibly the best place stayed in so far - couldn't really fault it at all.
Very quietly located but within easy distance of all the places we wished to visit - Eden Project etc.
Very highly recommended.
Excellent accomodation and location. Excellent welcome from the owners and a lovely gesture of a welcome tray. Would most definitely recommend and return to the cottage.
The Barn was of an excellent quality.The location was an excellent base in which to tour the area with magnificent views from the lounge.We could not have wished for a better cottage.
Perfectly-formed barn conversion.We all had a wonderful time and would be happy to recommend to friends and family.
We enjoyed our holiday at Brock Barns very much. This is the ideal accommodation to make differtent trips to explore Cornwall. Brock Barns is a very nice and quiet cottage based in wonderful nature.
We had a great place to stay, lovely weather and lots of brilliant leisure/sight seeing activities to do. The cottage was in a great location with good local amenities. I have used Sykes cottages before and would have no hesitation to use them again as they provide a high standard of accommodation.
Lots of thoughtful touches on arrival from the friendly hosts.
