Press Release

The Old Barn, a self-catering holiday property in Tregonetha, has been included in a list of the 10 best places to stay in Cornwall by

Selected by prolific travel journalist Adrian Mourby, the Old Barn is described as ‘a place to come back to after a hard day’s sight-seeing, or a cosy spot to hide yourself away completely for a few days.’

As someone who travels all over the world and writes about his experiences in a wide range of high-profile publications, Adrian’s good opinion is highly sought after by those in the tourism industry. Now a convert to the Old Barn’s charms, he’s booked there for another visit in November.

“I was sorry not to get there this summer,” he said. “However, we’ve managed to secure four nights in late November which should be a whole different experience, clad in big woolly sweaters and the log-burning stove roaring away!”

Stephen Chidgey owns the multiple award-winning and eco-friendly Old Barn, which sleeps five and boasts a variety of unique features – including a grand piano. High quality customer service is a number one priority, and every guest is welcomed with a well-stocked hamper of Cornish goodies.

“It’s a real thrill to have made Adrian Mourby’s top ten list of best places to stay in Cornwall,” said Stephen. “I’m a firm believer in never resting on your laurels and, to that end, my partner, Allen, and I work hard to give all our visitors the very best memories possible of their stay with us. I think that’s very important – not just for me as a holiday property owner but for Cornwall’s reputation as a magical, top-quality place for a break. A lot of local people depend on tourism for their livelihood and, with the cost-of-living biting hard, it’s even more vital to provide excellent value for money and attract repeat custom. I look forward to welcoming Adrian and his wife again in November. That time of year truly has a charm of its own.”
