Not easy to identify the property on arrival as the picture is of the rear of the property which is not visible from the car.. The heating had been turned down even though there was snow on arrival. Also, it was difficult to light the wood burner as there was no kindling provided. The parking area allocated to this unit seemed to be the only one not fully hard standing (rather boggy). The local information provided was very scanty and generally out of date. We had no means of contacting the owner/caretaker as there is no mobile signal and no email address given. Notwithstanding these comments we would still recommend this property.

Great place to stay, this isn’t the first time we have stayed at the Barn.. It’s excellent value for money and a great size. The kitchen has been replaced from last year which is a great as the old one was a little tired. I would definitely recommend for excellent value for money

We had a fantastic time.. The location was brilliant and accommodation fantastic. We booked with Sykes quite a while ago and would book again. The booking system was easy to use and the app was really useful too. Excellent.

Lovely barn great location as close to beaches and attractions.. Initially we were concerned as the garden was not completely enclosed as described and our 2 small dogs were able to escape. This was eventually rectified by the owner after contacting him. Poor WiFi unable to accommodate multiple users so beware if you have teenagers also very little mobile signal. Downstairs bed in particular was uncomfortable and noisy kids complained about springs in their mattresses. Overall though thought the property and location was ideal for us. Showers were excellent especially after a day at the beach, and we had all the comforts of home. Lots of information about things to do locally inside the property. It’s worth noting that this property is attached to other farm conversions and there are other people around as we thought this was more isolated. This was not a problem and there was a small communal swing system. Parking was easy take note of directions as property was initially tricky to locate. Definitely consider coming back.

Kingfisher barn is in a good position for visiting all areas of Cornwall and in a peaceful position.. I was shocked on arrival to find the property to be not as clean as I would like, it was certainly clean when we left it. The pool table was a big plus and was enjoyed by my daughter and her dad. The garden is not exactly enclosed as stated, we had to go out and buy chicken wire to prevent our dogs getting out, which took up one day of our holiday. The barn was reasonably well equipped but the downstairs double bed and the upstairs single were very uncomfortable. There are no dog walks straight off the property- no footpaths at all so you will need your car.

We arrived at the property and there was no central heating.. I have discussed this at length with your Customer Services team and although it is resolved, I believe Sykes should have been a little more on the side of their fee paying customer.
