Brocks Barn Coastal Cottage description

Holiday home
Ideally located in a peaceful courtyard close to the owner's home is this delightful barn conversion, set in the tiny hamlet of Sweetshouse. At just seven miles from Bodmin, this wonderful property is also conveniently placed for the charming town of Fowey. The cottage itself has been constructed from local stone and tastefully decorated. Featuring a light and airy open-plan living space, the property offers magnificent views over the rolling pastures to the moors of Bodmin beyond. The cottage is well placed for all local amenities and activities and makes an exciting place to stay, no matter what time of year you choose to visit.

Located in the Fowey river valley is the charming peaceful town of Lostwithiel. Set amidst woods and fields, this peaceful settlement is renowned as a centre for the antiques trade and there are several shops and dealers in the town itself as well as a fine collection of country pubs, restaurants and a thriving farmer's market. Nearby is the National Trust property, Lanhydrock House, in addition to the world famous Eden Project, shipwreck museum and tall ships harbour at Charlestown.

An excellent property to stay in, nice and warm for winter. Each time we saw the owner she asked us if everything was ok.

We will definitely visit again.

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!

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.

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.
August 2014
I beautiful retreat in the most peaceful countryside. The barn is centrally located for all destinations within Cornwall.

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.
August 2013
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 :)
April 2012
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
September 2012
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.
September 2010
Excellent accomodation. Very clean & comfortable. Very welcome food hamper & smellies. Very friendly & helpful family.
November 2010
We has a fantasic time ,and loved to some back each day ,to sit and watch the birds feed,to hang your washing our and be kissed by the cows in the next field,was awesome,A lovely family who were ,like having friends to stay with
December 2011
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 !
Mr Doherty
March 2016
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.
July 2010
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.
December 2009
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!!!

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.
December 2009
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.
