WOW factor on entering cottage thou it was cold (English summer rectified by the day storage heaters). Very comfortable high quality accommodation. Terry and Alex were very hospitable hosts with much appreciated good advise especially ignore the sat nav. A very enjoyable few days.
Beautiful quiet location
Very clean and well presented cottage with everything you need for self catering, a good selection and good standard of cooking utensils and pots and pans too (in our experience of other holiday lets that we have stayed in they can sometimes be not such good quality and frustrating to use). Proprietors very welcoming and friendly. Great central location between the North and South coasts, with lots to do around the area. The family and dog loved the cottage, our dog liked to sit and watch the rabbits in the fields from the long window at the back of the cottage! The children enjoyed the table tennis and playing in the garden. But most importantly a quiet tranquil setting to be able to completely relax and unwind.
Fabulous barn in great location
We loved staying at the threshing barn. It was everything we hoped for as a 3 generation family plus dog! Great location very warm welcome from owners and beautiful clean and comfortable barn. Would love to return. Thank you.
Peaceful spot in central location
We loved our stay at The Threshing Barn. Terry and Alex made us feel at home from the moment we arrived and are very knowledgeable about the area. They were happy to suggest interesting things to do whether active, historic or more leisurely. Cusgarne is a very peaceful village, away from the larger tourist centres, but close enough to many popular sights. We visited both north and south coasts as well as Truro and Falmouth. All are within a 30 min drive of the cottage. It is also very close to the coast to coast cycle path if you enjoy cycling.
There is a brilliant Organic Farm Shop just a couple of minutes walk down the road where you can buy wonderful jams, locally grown produce and wholefood supplies.
The barn has been beautifully restored and is kitted out very nicely, especially the kitchen where the pots, pans, etc were good quality. The shower was also very good. We never ran out of hot water!
We were only missing a couple of things - a couple of hooks for your towel by the shower, and some comfy garden furniture so you could enjoy a book outside in the lovely garden. There are wooden chairs but not so comfy for longer lounging. Sofa was also very small and low.
Overall we would not hesitate in recommending The Threshing Barn and would happily stay again.
An excellent base
A lovely barn conversion in a pretty inland village well positioned for reaching all regions in Cornwall.
Friendly helpful owners on site.
Only gripe - the 3 piece suite isn’t very comfortable. Beds excellent.
Loved the upside down living and spacious garden.
Would be happy to return.
Excellent property in a central but quiet location
Tin - the powerhouse of Cornwall's industrial past. Oak wooded, heather topped valleys with crystal streams once throbbed with the racket of tin streaming - winning precious metals. Engine houses and stacks bear stark, romantic testament to a heritage borne of the bravery and determination of generations of miners and Bal maidens. The area of Mid Cornwall, south west from Truro and only a short drive inland from Falmouth is full of this industrial heritage. The Victorian towns of Camborne and Redruth - both produced world-class inventors and engineers. Camborne's Richard Trevithick created the world's first steam-powered road engine in 1801. His achievements are celebrated at Camborne's annual Trevithick Day celebrations in April. You can follow in the footsteps of Cornwall's 18th Century tin miners on the atmospheric tour of the Poldark Mine just north of Helston.
Nearby is Stithians Lake, for fishing, sailing, sailboarding and recently the stunning wake-boarding championships. For views of the whole region take the roads to Carn Brea or Carn Marth above Camborne. From here you can see St Ives, St Michael's Mount, Falmouth and east to Clay Country. Near here is the Great Flat Lode Trail through the mines and high moors. These days, most of the mining has disappeared, but it is still a fascinating area to explore and is steeped in history. A highlight is to hire a bicycle and ride along the old mineral tramway now called the Bissoe Trail from Devoran to Portreath or the North Coast.
Cusgarne lies in a sheltered valley on the edge of the famous tin and copper heritage mining area between Redruth, Truro and Falmouth. Here in the past were many industries; flour mills, wool, paint, linen and candle factories to name a few. This lovely sheltered valley, where many rare plants grow, is a delightful place to visit with something for everyone to enjoy.
The harbour town of Falmouth is within a short drive with a number of attractions for the visitor. There is the fascinating National Maritime Museum or you can take a boat trip around the spectacular Carrick Roads or sample the stylish Rick Stein's Fish & Chip Restaurant or Oyster Bar. The Helford River and Lizard Peninsula are also within easy reach.
The city of Truro is only a 7 mile drive to the north east and has a wide selection of good shopping including a Tescos, Sainsburys, Marks & Spencer and many other high street outlets. There is also a cinema and a great selection of restaurants, pubs & cafes. The resort of Newquay is about 12 miles to the north with its spectacular surf beaches at Fistral & Watergate Bay. Jamie Oliver's "Fifteen" restaurant is located here. Padstow, with its fine selection of restaurants influenced by Rick Stein is just over 20 miles. Harbourside towns & villages such as Fowey, Falmouth & St Mawes are all within easy reach. For those flying to Cornwall, the airport is within easy reach.
