My children and I stay here with my parent's every May half term (and have done for a number of years). The house is lovely as are the grounds, fantastic views and setting. Always had excellent support from Tina, a real home from home.
We really enjoyed our stay at Dolphins Barn. A nice secure wrap around garden which the children loved and enabled us to have peaceful breakfasts on the patio. The house has a large family orientatated kitchen-diner which allowed ud to have communal family meals. Ten minutes walk to a small safe sandy beach with life guards. The children loved the body boarding. Pub nearby, 200 yds, with large garden and fantastic views of the coastline. All the house facilities are excellently maintained and only a 5/6 minute drive to Padstow pubs, restaurants, shops and supermarket.
Will definitely come again. Children and adults loved it.
Dolphins Barn exceeded our expectations. It is one of the best family holiday homes I have stayed in and I would love to repeat the trip. It was warm and cosy; clean; comfortable; spacious; well appointed; fab kitchen/diner/family room plus separate lounge - in fact it had everything I could have asked for.
We were a group of eight with an age range of four to seventy and there was space enough for everyone without us falling over each other.
Plenty of places to visit, even in January - the wonderful Padstow close-by and of course those beautiful Cornish beaches, particularly spectacular in winter.
Idyllic is the word that instantly comes to mind when I think of Dolphin's Barn. Lying in the beautiful cove of Trevone the house is amazingly well equipped with everything a coastal retreat should have. Plenty of space for families to relax , enjoy the garden and within a short walk to a lovely sandy beach one way or rock pool beach the other. My family of 6 have been returning for Christmas breaks for a number of years and with spectacular walks along the South West Coast Path it makes for a perfect holiday break any time of year especially coming back to a warm and cosy house with a huge open plan kitchen/dining area, perfect for socialising while all may contribute to a bit of cooking. In the village a farm shop has essential supplies with daily fresh bread from Padstow although if you want to collect your own a spectacular walk across the headland to Padstow has to be our favourite walk ever but preferably do not try in a gale! I can think of nothing negative to say about Dolphins Barn except at some point you have to leave! It is not your usual holiday rental it is a much loved home with every comfort to provide visitors with a carefree and simply perfect break whatever the weather.
Good location, just a short walk to Trevone beach. Nice coast walk into Padstow. House is beautiful, spacious and clean with plenty of space so that although it sleeps 8 there is plenty of actual living space as well as bedrooms. Had long evenings playing cards at the big kitchen table. This was our second visit, both times in March and we would love to return in the summer to be able to enjoy the garden as well.
