We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Barn, right in the heart of Polperro. A lovely cosy beamed cottage with wood burner, made the experience more pleasurable. Thank you.

Absolutely lovely cottage, in a fantastic location, its small but fitted our needs, and my wife fell in love with the place..I liked it as its not to far from the pub, very quiet and relaxing, enjoyed feeding the ducks every day as the river is right outside the cottage. Wonderful stay....only downside, low beams.....taller people need to duck. Other than that , fantastic. !

July 2014

Little Barn was a lovely place to stay. It was well equipped and the location was quaint. It was great to be in a central location in the village.

March 2014

Only comment would be is that the bedrooms have low roof beams in places which may not suit taller people. Absolutely beautiful cottage and very quiet as set back from the road next to the stream. Wonderfully warm and snug and had a lovely nights sleep. Will be returning. Thank you.
