This high end barn conversion is finished to an excellent standard and includes all of what you would expect from a modern home. The cottages are set around an enclosed courtyard that features its very own working water well. The barns are found tucked away in a peaceful centrally positioned location in a spacious area of natural beauty. Each cottage has a fully equipped farmhouse style kitchen with built in appliances including a microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge and freezer.

Kerensa Cottage

  • 3 of 5

We felt the accommadation, although comfortable, was a bit overpriced. It would have been nice to have a television in at least one of the bedrooms, so that when people wanted to watch different programmes, they could do so.

Lovely place - easy to access central Cornwall - pool fantastic addition in the heatwave

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay - picked it for the ease of getting around this area. The pool was great - only thing that marred it was other residents apparently unable to read about having glasses on poolside and smoking in it which was a bit off putting!

the cottage was really comfortable and clean.

The site manager attended almost immediately when i contacted him about a couple of minor issues.

We would stay again

Karensa Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely property with good facilities, the location was a little isolated, with no access to any towns without a vehicle. The facilities on the complex were good although carefully read the rules before booking a few took us by surprise. All in though a really nice place to stay we had a great stay. Thanks

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Andrew we are glad you enjoyed the property & facilities. As for the rules you mentioned I'm afraid children swimming without adult supervision is not allowed anywhere that I'm aware of. Finally regarding the comments of not being able to leave your dogs alone please see the description that's always been on the property "Up to 2 well behaved dogs are permitted at no additional cost although please remember that you cannot leave dogs unattended in the cottage alone." Hopefully these 2 points didn't put too much of a dampener on your holiday. Many thanks

Visiting Falmouth.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this cottage last year and had a few concerns. My wife phoned the agent the week before we went and mentioned our problems from last year. On arrival all our requests.had been acted on. We were very pleased with the customer service and would stay again as this is an excellent location with a lovely pool and jacuzzis to relax in at the end of the day.

Thank you.

Graduation week and family holiday.

  • 4 of 5

A great location near Falmouth.

Plenty of room for five adults and two dogs.

Comftable beds.

Two good bathrooms.

Kitchen utensils were poor quality. Knifes were blunt and metal pan handles got very hot. No dishes to cook food in the oven.

This was a shame as we were self catering.

Family of 5

  • 5 of 5

We love the location of the cottage and facilities were excellent. The children absolutely loved the pool and the games room. The cottage itself was very clean and well equipped. The only slight criticisms would be that the downstairs mattress dipped in the middle and as someone who has back problems I found this uncomfortable (I would have changed room but didn't want my 11 yr old sleeping downstairs alone). also I didn't feel comfortable leaving the children to play in the play area as there were 2 dogs that were free roaming on occasion. Not sure if they were the owners and I should mention that they seemed friendly enough.

Owner's Response: Hi Carly, Thanks for taking the time to review one of our properties. After reading your review we have inspected the bed and noticed a broken slat which has now been fixed so hopefully that's that problem solved. The dogs belong to the neighbours and do roam around but are around kids and friendly. Overall we are glad you had an enjoyable stay. Thanks Jodie

Karensa Cottage is situated just one mile from the quaint Cornish village Mawnan Smith, and three miles from the bustling port of Falmouth. Here you will find a host of shops, bars and restaurants, the award winning National Maritime Museum and Trebah Gardens which is not to be missed.

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and place to eat. The National Maritime Museum Cornwall and Pendennis Castle are both high on visitors lists of places to visit and the views from Pendennis on a fine day a truly magical. Falmouth is the sailing capital of Cornwall with its spectacular deep water natural harbour offering a haven for both cruisers and racers. Many events are held through the summer culminating in the famous Falmouth Regatta Week and associated shore side events.

The beaches at Gyllingvase & Swanpool are coarse sand and are wonderfully sunny south facing spots. You can ride the ferry to beautiful St Mawes for the day or take a delightful trip around the estuary stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens or Smugglers Cottage for a cream tea! There are plenty of places to eat & drink in Falmouth and recently Rick Stein has opened his Fish & Chip Restaurant & Oyster Bar at Discovery Quay adding to the superb mix across the town.
