The Experience

Giant windows overlook many acres of farmland, and Jill and Blair look after you so well! Breakfasts are special with the best local produce, homemade granola, yogurt and more. Arrive for tea and lovely home-baked cake, laid out in a comfortable guest sitting room with a log fire and plenty of books and maps. Bedrooms are fresh and pretty with garden flowers, soft white linen on big beds and floral green walls. Gloriously large panelled bathrooms have long roll top baths and are painted in earthy colours. You can knock a few balls around the tennis court, and you’re near to good gardens and heaps of places to eat.

The house is exactly like it looks on the pictures: cosy, comfortable and clean. Jill breakfast are awesome, same as the cakes for cream tea. Blair has a god sense of humor. We felt really well from the first minute. We enjoyed playing tennis, croquet or hide and seek within the farm. Again, a very nice, clean, well furnished place you want to stay for more days.

I love the warm welcome and homemade cakes that Jill and Blair offer their guests in their gorgeous Cornish Farmhouse on the Roseland. Breakfasts with eggs from the farm are a real treat and its easy to see why they have won a Sawday's Breakfast Award. A hard tennis court is a real bonus you wouldn't expect to find and there are lots of lovely walks on the coast nearby. Just fabulous in every way.

Valerie, Sawday's inspector

Thank you so very much dear Jill and Blair for giving us such a wonderful few days in Cornwall. Not only did you provide wonderful hospitality and amazing breakfasts to my husband and my self but when he was taken seriously ill on our second day with you, you pulled out all the stops. Thank you for all you did, from coming to the hospital to bring me my things and bringing me back to your farm, to having my family to stay so that they could visit their dad and grandpa. You are truly an amazing couple and we shall be back! Thank you so very much xx

Hay Barton is an absolute gem - a beautiful old farmhouse, lovingly restored. Jill and Blair can't do enough for you, and serve the best breakfast I've encountered in any B&B anywhere (I'm vegetarian, so often it's a choice between eggs and eggs - but Jill followed homemade granola with poached eggs, spinach, beautifully done tomatoes, homemade baked beans...). I was in Cornwall on a research trip, and the rooms are more than spacious and airy enough to work in. The guest lounge is a lovely space that you actually want to use, complete with an open fire that made it perfect for February.

Our 4 night stay at the Hay Barton in January was wonderful. Jill and Blair looked after us royally, from the warm welcome, most delicious breakfasts ( I loved the home made granola, yogurt and fruit), lovely open fires, helpful suggestions for where to visit, walk and eat and for making us feel very comfortable through out our stay. Excellent.

Jane, Salisbury

Perfect in every respect.


It took all of 5 minutes for us to move our minds into this perfect world. All the pressures and stresses are still there but they don't matter. Lengthy descriptions of the place can be summed up in one word. Perfect. Breakfast goes beyond perfection even if that is impossible. The eggs were fresh, they came in from the chickens, still warm, 20 minutes before being presented to us. The granola, the yoghurt and the marmalade are homemade whilst almost everything else is sourced locally. For us breakfast is usually a term for a rushed small meal; here it was a relaxed gastronomic experience.


We would like to heartly endorse what others have written abut this wonderful B and B and their delightful owners. We stayed three nights taking advantage of Hay Barton's proximity to the fabulous coastal walks and NT properties in the region. The legendary breakfasts were enough to carry as through to evening pub suppers even after walking several miles along the coast!

We have just spent four days at this excellent B&B and were pleased to find that Sawday had not let us down - Hay Barton is as good as these previous reviews suggest. Jill and Blaire were so friendly, and even gave us advice on chicken rearing. Don't be afraid to try this B&B if you have a food allergy - I am coeliac and Jill coped admirably. The gluten-free breakfasts were just as good, and Jill provided delicious gluten-free cakes and biscuits for tea. Whilst in a quiet location, this B&B is well located for lovely walks and gardens; and a wide range of options for dinner. Recommended!

Caroline, Sherborne

I always check out the Sawday guide for the area we want to stay in and have always come up trumps. Hay Barton is no exception, we enjoyed our stay very much. I am grateful for your helpful guides.


Jill and Blair are terrific,we've been staying here for some years now and it's as good now as it was the first time ,in fact it is even better. It is our favourite B&B in Cornwall,go you won't regret it!!!!! BREAKFASTS ARE TO DIE FOR AND THE CAKES ARE EXTREMELY MOREISH.


I don't think I've ever stayed in such a welcoming place. The owners were so helpful. The attention to detail, the food and accommodation were excellent.


Best B&B ever. The perfect hosts, perfect breakfast. Nothing else to say - just perfect!


We have been staying here for some time now and it gets better and better. Nothing is too much trouble and Jill and Blair's attention to detail makes a stay at Hay Barton very special.Go on treat yourselves!!!

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Jill & Blair Jobson

  • St Mawes is a Mediterranean jewel. Enjoy gourmet ice cream on the terrace at the Tresanton Hotel. Catch the ferry to the hip town of Falmouth. Explore the creek by kayak. End the day with the Watch Out’s finest fish and chips on the beach
  • Carne Beach is our favourite with a mile long stretch of white sand and set against the dramatic backdrop of Nare Head. For a secluded cove, take a dip at Porthcurnick before ambling to the galleries and shops at the pretty village of Portscatho
  • Two close, unbeatable walks. Place to St Anthony takes you to the lighthouse with panoramic views of Falmouth Bay and beaches with no road access. A gentler walk from St Mawes to St Just-in-Roseland meanders along the water’s edge to a stunning church
  • Winter in Cornwall is just as magical. Coast paths and beaches are entirely yours. Shelter from the elements in cosy village pubs. Warm up in our six-foot long roll top baths then curl up in front of an open fire with a well-earned cuppa
  • The world famous open-air Minack Theatre is a highlight of a Cornish visit, built into the granite cliffside of the spectacular Porthcurno Bay. Wrap up in blankets and enjoy the theatre or just visit the sub-tropical gardens in the day
  • Our favourite gardens are The Lost Gardens of Heligan which sprawl over 200 acres and range from formal Victorian gardens to ancient woodland. Fabulous Trelissick is just over the King Harry Ferry with spectacular views down the Carrick Roads estuary.
