Contention Barn Self-Catering

Holiday home
Contention Barn is a single storey cottage next door to a pub in the Cornish village of Penhallow. The cottage sleeps two people and has one double bedroom, a shower room and an open plan living area with kitchen and sitting area. Outside is a private enclosed garden with outdoor furniture and off road parking. Just three miles from Perranporth and seven miles from Truro, Contention Barn is a lovely holiday cottage for any couple.

Area
With sandy beaches and fantastic rolling surf, it isn't difficult to see why the little town of Perranporth is so popular amongst watersports enthusiasts. Whether the tide is in or out, visitors can find something to enjoy on the beach - be it walks along the miles of sand or surfing in the impressive waves.

Region
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.

Self-Catering Reviews

The host was friendly and the cottage was as described, comfortable and clean and the kitchen had everything you would need.. It is nothing fancy in terms of decor but I wasn't expecting it to be. It was functional and the location great for exploring Cornwall. The only concern I had was because we had a lot of sea mist while we were there, the house did have a smell of damp when you walked in and towels etc didn't dry. The property was plenty warm enough (the heating could be controlled with a little thermostat on the wall) but because you couldn't turn the radiators on clothes didn't dry well. All in all a pleasant stay though.

A very good location, next to the road but very quite.. Nice little garden and everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

The pictures in the web site showed an armchair and footstool which was not there.. The bedroom was damp so all the clothes we put on were damp. I appreciate energy saving bulbs but the bedroom was so dark even with all the lights on you couldn’t read a book in bed The fridge did not have a freezer compartment, The proximity of the barn was accurate in reaching the pubs and beaches, but I think this property need to be updated

We had an excellent time staying in contention barn.. The owners were extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable on where to go and what to do and see. Highly recommend and would like to visit again in the near future.

The cottage is situated on a very busy main road, which means there is a lot of noise from passing traffic.. This is very noticeable in the bedroom when trying to sleep,sometime you can feel the vibration from large vehicles. The only garden furniture is a fixed picnic bench, which cannot be moved and is not very comfortable, especially in the evening when it is in the shaded area of the garden. The garden would benefit from some movable / comfortable chairs. There is no heating in the bathroom, which is ok in warm weather but makes drying towels difficult when you can,t hang them outside to dry.

The location of the property was no more than o.. K. with no access to a shop, fairly nearby, the only real negative issue. Otherwise the property was perfectly adequate in all respects.
