Stephen Davey Barn is a beautiful conversion of one of the stone outbuildings of an historic manor house located just outside the village of Mullion on Cornwall's spectacular Lizard Peninsula.

The main living space is a dramatic room, with open beams and plenty of space for a large party to spread out and relax. Stephen Davey Barn is just a lovely place to stay.

The cottage is located just a few minutes drive from Mullion where you can find a small selection of shops and places to eat. Poldu Cove is a little further and is a lovely sandy beach with a cafe and lifeguards during the season. It is also an excellent surf beach in the right conditions.

Mullion is the largest village situated on the Lizard Peninsula and boasts a number of quality pubs, cafes and restaurants among it's various attractions. Four beaches - Mullion Cove, Poldhu Cove and Polhurrian Cove - are conveniently nearby and easy access to the South West Coastal Path offers visitors the chance to explore the beautiful surrounding scenery.

At the heart of the village stands a 13th century church, famous for it’s ornate woodwork decorating the end of the each pew and depicting scenes from the Old and New Testament. Outside in the water, two, thick sea walls, built in the late 19th century, protect the harbour from the worst of the wind. Local fisherman still work in the harbour to land fabulous fresh seafood, some of which is then served in the local pubs and restaurants.

The Lighthouse on the Lizard Peninsula is the most Southerly point in Great Britain, having stood since 1751 warning passing ships of the infamous 'Man O' War rocks'. The Lizard has so much to offer for such a remote location. Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station is the worlds largest satellite earth receiving station with over 60 communications dishes. Poldhu Cove, home of Marconi's first transatlantic radio message in 1901. The National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek moved to its current location in 1975 and is home to grey seals and common seals, as well as Californian and Patagonian sea lions. The sanctuary often rescue other marine life as well when demand requires.

Trebah Gardens at Mawnan Smith is a 25 acre sub tropical privately owned gardens set above the Helford River. Nearby Glendurgan Gardens boasting a recently refurbished 177 year old laurel maze, is now owned by the National Trust. For a fun-filled family day out why not visit The Flambards Experience, offering more rides, amusements and exhibitions than anywhere else in Cornwall. On the Helford River sits Frenchman's Creek where Daphne du Maurier spent her honeymoon dreaming of the Cornish villages that set the scene for her novels.

Helston was originally a thriving port until the river silted up over the years; where the river joins the sea is now Cornwall's largest freshwater lake. Helston is a busy market town with plenty of Victorian and Georgian architecture. The Monument is an impressive building at the end of Coinaghall Street which was built in 1834 in memory of Humphry Millet Grylls, whose actions kept open the local tin mine and saved 1200 jobs. Possibly one of the country's oldest privately owned brewery's can also be found in Coinaghall Street; The Blue Anchor was originally used as a rest house for monks and became a tavern in the 15th century. It now makes a strong local brew called Spingo.

Helston is probably best known for the 'furry' or floral dance which is held every May. Flora Day kicks off with the Hal-an-Tow where St George and St Michael slay the dragon and the devil, cheered on by the locals dressed in Elizabethan costumes. The main dancing starts at midday with participants dressed in ball gowns and top hats and tails.

Elizabeth from Swindon stayed at Stephen Davey Barn for 7 nights in August
I booked the Stephen Davy Barn as a base for our family holiday this year. We were 4 adults and 2 children aged 10 and 2. The cottage had plenty of space for us all and was very comfortable. It is well positioned for travelling around western Cornwall which has many beautiful sites. The cottage has an 'upsidedown' formula where the bedrooms are on the lower floor, which means the bedrooms are cool, they only slight downfall with this is that you can hear people moving about upstairs, this didn't seem to bother the children but my daughter found it slightly annoying when she was trying to sleep in. The Peacocks were very friendly and would regularly greet us in the mornings, although they can be noisy first thing you soon get used to it. Sarah made us feel very welcome, even calling me the evening before to check what time we were expecting to arrive and that we had received the map and directions to the Manor. Sarah came to greet us when we had arrived which we thought was a lovely touch, she is very proud of the work that she and her husband have done in renovating the Manor and offered to give us a tour, but unfortunately due to time constraints we were unable to do. However as we are planning to go back, I will definately take her up on her offer then. All in all I would recommend the Stephen Davy Barn for a base in Cornwall and we will certainly book again.

Rachel from Nottingham stayed at Stephen Davey Barn for 7 nights in June
A fantastic 4 bedroom cottage situated within an hours drive of almost all of the sights of Cornwall - a fantastic location. The cottage was exactly as described and pictured, well equipped and plenty big enough for a weeks stay. Would definitely recommend to friends and family looking for quality self catering accommodation.

Jayne from Dudley stayed at Stephen Davey Barn for 7 nights in April
We have just spent a lovely week in Cornwall at Stephen Davey Barn. I very nearly didn't book as there were no reviews on the website and what a mistake that would have been. The barn is beautiful and we had a great welcome from Sarah and Martin, including a delightful welcome pack of wine, milk, biscuits, tea and coffee. The main living area is upstairs, it is massive and very well equipped - everything you need is included. the bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs, they are lovely, airy and very spacious. The linen and towels are very good quality. My only point for improvement would be the inclusion of a shower over the bath to speed up getting everyone ready in the morning to enjoy Cornwall. There are peacocks and peahens wandering the gardens and alpacas and sheep to admire. The position is great for exploring the Lizard and we went as far afield as St Ives and Eden. There are lots of eateries in the surrounding area, we particularly like Rick Stein's in Porthleven and the cafe overlooking the sea at Lizard point. We also bought the best pasties ever at Sue's and went to the best butchers to buy hog's pudding, both at Lizard point. Hard to beat our stay, easy and delightful right from booking to arriving back home!
