The Experience

Each of these recently renovated barns – sweet one-storey boltholes surrounded by peace and seclusion – is luxurious in an understated way. Fresh, gleaming and new, with a roll top bath, gorgeous soaps and a Bose iPod dock.

Outside is a covered storage area for bikes, surf boards and wet suits; inside is a super roomy kitchen and a wood-burner stocked with logs. Start the day in a bathroom warmed by heated floors; while away an afternoon on a steamer chair in your own little outside space.

Generous Frances leaves leaves a bottle of award-winning Cornish wine and Cornish chocolates for your arrival. She’ll recommend restaurants and activities, and arrange spa treatments to come to you.

Thanks to Frances for a lovely stay – so comfortable and everything we needed. Thanks for all your valuable information – gave an extra special experience to our stay. A beautiful home in a beautiful relaxed but accessible part of Cornwall to explore.

Kevin and Debbie, Formby

This was our second visit to Bolotho Barns and the accommodation was as good as we remember. The important elements such as, a comfortable bed with good quality bedding, a good shower and a good usable kitchen made us feel very welcome.

Carol, Marlborough

You have certainly achieved a holiday home perfect for us, really comfortable, spacious and beautiful – we loved it and much enjoyed our stay in Cornwall.

Simon and Maureen, Hadleigh

Fabulous place. Beautiful location, wonderful accommodation. Thoughtful host. Faultless.

Peter, Great Malvern

Thank you for another wonderful break – the atmosphere, the quiet, the surroundings are all one could need – we love staying here and look forward to our next visit’

Julie and Graham, Blackwell

We’ve had another fabulous time – we always love coming back here. Can’t wait to come again. Louisa and Edward loved it. Thank you for making it so special. See you again soon!

Mark and Jo, Stroud

I loved the peace and quiet of Bolotho Barns set at the end of a long lane surrounded by fields. Bramblings and Skylarks are a haven to relax and unwind in, and perfect for couples. Frances really spoils her guests with a fabulous welcome and lots of little touches that make for a very special stay. Easy to get to either the North or South coasts in around 15 minutes, its central location is a real bonus.

Valerie, Sawday's inspector

An Oasis of excellence, from the cleanliness, to tasteful and comfortable decorations. As we visited in February the central heating made the cottage cosy and the wood burner added that overall feeling of well-being. The welcome extras of eggs,butter, biscuits, and yummy chocolate oat biscuits was a welcome surprise. All of this combined with the countryside location made for a perfect long weekend escape. Well done😃😃

Daric, Lyme Regis

We have stayed at Bolotho Barns three times this year and have enjoyed an idyllic break on each occasion. The accommodation is spacious and faultless, with everything done to a high standard. The owner is on hand to answer any questions and the location, while rural and extremely peaceful, is convenient for both the North and South coasts. We stay at many self-catering cottages and this is one of the best.

Frances Grant

Frances and Steve Grant converted the local stone and slate tiled barns from 19th-century stables and farm buildings in 2010. They were fascinated by the history of Bolotho Farm which is part of the Killiow estate and dates back to the 6th century, and loved the tranquil spot – and the local deer that wander the estate. Passionate about the area they are big advocates of Cornish produce and keen to give you tips on good pubs, restaurants and stuff to do.
