This ground floor cottage is located next to a pub in the village of Penhallow in Cornwall and can sleep two people.

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.


Location wasn?t great as you couldn?t walk to anywhere so were totally dependent on the car. It had a small enclosed garden with fence all around, but there were no great views from the garden just the back of the fence. There was no WiFi either which made it difficult to research surrounding area and not enough info in the leaflets in the property. There was limited channels on the t.v so difficult to fill your time when it was pouring with rain and you have a pet dog with you. The barn itself was spacious, but leather armchair was tattty with all the leather peeling off the arms and the panels on the doors looked a bit grubby in places. The owners did however, leave cream teas and fresh flowers on arrival which was a nice touch. I do know however, there are much nicer places in better locations, cheaper than this. We were staying in Mevagissey and wanted to stay on for a few more nights so booked here in haste for 5 nights. Lots of rules and a notices up around the barn of do's and dont's

A lovely holiday cottage which is tranquil and calm for a wonderful break. Lots of lovely wildlife on your doorstep. Good location for travel to other villages and towns in Cornwall.
