Sally, September 2021

The best Airbnb we have stayed in , the grounds and garden are beautiful and the Hideaway is wonderful, full of luxurious touches. We stayed 4 nights and wish it was longer . Dean & Stephen really are Superhosts. We will be highly recommending The Hideaway to our friends ❤️

Melvin, August 2021

If you want somewhere secluded where you can relax and forget everything for a few days this is the place for you. A beautiful converted old mill with everything that you could need, comfortable superking size bed, and a lovely big bath. We enjoyed the wood burning hot tub in the evenings. Peace and quite it was wonderful, we hope to go again, thank you Dean and Stephen for such an amazing place to stay

Charles, July 2021

The Hideaway is the perfect escape, set in a beautiful green hidden valley.
The property is absolutely gorgeous- super stylish, comfortable and cosy, with luxurious touches aplenty. Will definitely head back when we can.

Sandeep, July 2021

Had an awesome stay; the place is both spacious and stylish. The check-in process was straightforward, and communication was excellent throughout, with plenty of local recommendations provided. Free parking was included, which was really helpful. Thoroughly recommend it to all.

Graham, July 2021

The Hideaway was like a little piece of paradise and went beyond our expectations. Would highly recommend to anyone who is searching for peace and tranquility in a beautiful setting. The hosts are great and the accommodation was immaculate. We will be back!!

Catherine, June 2021

We had the most wonderful time in this perfect spot!! Dean and Stephen are such thoughtful and conscientious hosts and generally think of everything you might need. The local area is picture perfect and we’d thoroughly recommend a circular walk from Porth Reservoir and takes in beautiful Tregoose Old Mill as a sight. Thanks so much again to Dean and Stephen for an amazing stay at the Hideaway!

Jonathan, May 2021

The hideaway is absolutely stunning! Will definitely be returning as soon as we can.
everything is so special and every little detail thought of.
cant wait to go back!!!!

Orla, May 2021

Absolutely beautiful, relaxing, tranquil, welcoming, peaceful, perfect weekend spent at Dean and Stephen's wonderful Hideaway. It truly is a Hideaway from the world! I don't think I've ever slept in a more comfortable bed, and the outdoor hot tub was a favorite!
What a stunning part of the world - it felt like we were living in a dream for the whole weekend. And thank you so much for your homemade scones and eggs!
You are so very lucky to call the beautiful surroundings of the Old Mill at Tregoose your home - we will be back, next time to stay in the Wriggly Tin!

Katharine, July 2020

This is a wonderful place to stay, we can not recommend enough. We felt like new people afterward. They have created such a special space - it's so nice to find somewhere that takes pride in creating a great place to stay. They aren't looking to make a quick buck on a rental; they truly have created a thoughtful space to get away and rejuvenate. The mattress was comparable to a five star hotel. They have six acres for walks, and we spent a delightful afternoon with wine and books in their orchard. Thank you again for having us!

Helen, July 2020

The Hideaway is a stylish retreat that provides the perfect place to relax. From arrival, our experience was excellent. Both Dean and Stephen were great hosts, welcoming and attentive. The Hideaway is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated; a perfect space for two. The outside space is great for drinks and their large gardens (including a private orchard) is perfect for a stroll or picnic. The Hideaway is a wonderful, relaxing spot and I highly recommend a visit.

Emilia, February 2020

Very clean, excellent facilities down to the smallest of details being thought about. Hosts were super friendly and we were made to feel welcome on arrival. Will definitely be returning to this amazing property.

Dan, November 2019

Tregoose Old Mill is just wonderful. A beautiful cottage in calm and peaceful surroundings...the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of busy city life. Dean and Stephen’s attention to detail is commendable, from the fully resourced kitchen to the snuggliest bed...fresh eggs and scones to a huge relaxing bathtub, soft dressing gowns and a warming fire...we loved it all! The location is perfect and only a 10 minute drive to the main town. We will definitely be returning!

D, November 2019

Stayed in this comfortable accommodation for 3 days. It's just perfect getaway from busy London. I was able to relax and have a special contact with nature and also I was very welcomed by Dean & Stephen. I definitely will come back and also recommend. Daniel.

Tell, October 2019

Dean and Stephen go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and special. High quality accommodation in lovely setting. Would highly recommend the Hideaway and will definitely be coming back.

Anne, August 2019

Relaxing weekend in fantastic surroundings, enjoying great local food as recommended by our hosts.

This property was beautifully decorated, tastefully furnished and in a lovely location. The kitchen facilities were all you could need and the bedding was extremely comfortable - very cosy. Our hosts were so welcoming and accommodating (we changed our arrival and departure time and they were so understanding - thank you!). The facilities were amazing, everything is of a very high quality - including the delicious eggs, home-baked scones and muffins - such a nice touch.

Em, August 2019

We were given a very warm and personalised welcome, the property is amazing & hosts wonderful! We loved everything - the decor, facilities, location - it's very tranquil and restful, perfect! This is easily the nicest accomodation we have stayed in anywhere - hotel, B&B or self catering! We even have some lovely treats to take home with us, and memories that will last a lifetime.

Mark, July 2019

The Wriggly Tin

Myfanwy, October 2021

What an Amazing find!! Beautiful location and a Very nicely decorated Shepard hut. Great location- 10/15 min drive into Newquay Beautiful spot, very private with just the cows and sheep to be heard! Fab hot tub. Attention to detail and person touches by Dean and Stephen were Fab. We would definitely come back and highly recommend staying here. We Loved it.

Emma, September 2021

Thank you to Dean & Stephen for our wonderful stay. Very accommodating and helped with setting up the hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this place. Super cosy with everything you needed. Anyone looking to booked, don’t hesitate, you will not be disappointed.

Raven, August 2021

We only stayed at the wriggly tin for one night but wish we had stayed for longer. The location was perfect, the Shepard’s hut is flawless. It was great to put our phones down and relax. We loved the sheep and the ducks! It had everything we needed and loved all the added touches (scones were divine!) would highly recommend & will be returning for longer next time!

Georgia, August 2021

Expect a wonderful stay at this amazing location. The accommodation is so beautifully designed and cosy, and the surroundings were idyllic and peaceful. We loved having the ducks and sheep as neighbours! Thanks so much to Dean and Stephen for a truly memorable experience. We hope to come back again, and would highly recommend to all our friends and family.

Louisa, August 2021

A beautiful little cabin for a cosy break. Lovely to be away from hustle and bustle.
Lovely scones and eggs. The hut has everything you need!
Highly recommend!

Tom, July 2021

So peaceful and relaxing. The shepherds hut was incredibly comfy and loved using the outdoor bath. Only 15 mins drive from centre of Newquay but completely out in the sticks, perfect location. We had a wonderful stay for our mini moon.

George, July 2021

If this place is available- book it!
Perfect little private escape to unwind in the middle of the countryside.
Theres not many places that make you feel so relaxed and away from the hustle and bustle of life as this.
Everything was super clean and the finish of the hut was exceptional.
We've stayed in many different air bnb's and this one tops the list!

Heather, June 2021

Dean and Stephen made our visit to Cornwall so special. The Wriggly Tin is so well thought out and designed - they really have thought of everything and it shows. We loved the rustic, wood-fired hot tub and the cosy feel of the hut itself. The outdoor area is beautiful and serene which made for a perfect escape from the city. Location is also excellent, just a stone's throw away from Padstow, Watergate bay and the surfing beaches around Newquay. Dean and Stephen provided some great recommendations of things to do in the area which was very helpful. They also very kindly provided us with homemade scones, clotted cream, jam, Cornish milk and eggs from their chickens which were delicious. We would definitely recommend the Wriggly Tin if you are looking for a tranquil, secluded, cosy escape to Cornwall.

Liam, May 2021

An amazing little shepherd's hut exactly as described. A lovely warm welcome by the hosts and they are ready for any questions you might have. The wriggly tin is bigger than you might think but still packs a lot into the space. Will certainly be back one day.

Rachel, July 2020

WOW! Where to begin... the scones, clotted cream & jam on arrival, the fresh, just laid double yolk duck eggs, the luxury sheets & robes... we could go on about this incredibly special stay at the tin. From the fittings in the tin, to the cookware, and the hot tub, everything was of an extremely high standard. We've never stayed in a place where we were rushing back just to enjoy the accommodation. ABOVE AND BEYOND. Thanks Dean & Stephen. We really hope to stay here again soon!

Claire, July 2020

A perfect little piece of rural paradise! The Wriggly Tin was perfect for a weekend away to celebrate our wedding anniversary - it was in a beautiful setting and within easy reach of fabulous beaches and amenities, and was well-equipped and beautifully kitted out. The bed was very comfortable and the wood-fired hot tub was fantastic - perfect for relaxing with a drink in hand, listening to the birds and the stream. We felt very welcomed by the lovely hosts and the extra little touches, such a freshly baked scones on arrival, made it even better! Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.



Sophia, July 2020

Highly recommend! The photographs don’t do this place justice. You honestly can’t put into words how magical this stay was. From the lovely warm welcoming hosts, to the freshly made scones, the delicious chicken eggs, the relaxing hot tub and the beautiful grounds. The list could go on.



Paige, July 2020

My partner and I had a 3 night stay at the wriggly tin and everything about this place is amazing. It is very private with some friendly sheep and ducks as your neighbours. Smooth check in and we were greeted with some homemade scones and freshly laid eggs which were both great! Great communication both before and during our stay. The wriggly tin is so cosy and the bed is fantastic. The wood fired hot tub is superb. The place has some lovely touches with great attention to detail. The place is around a 15 minute drive into Newquay where we ate at some lovely places recommended by Stephen. All in all the perfect getaway and would recommend to anyone thinking about staying here!



Jess, July 2020

Stephen and Dean are excellent hosts, not only was the wiggly tin the perfect hideaway, the thoughtful touches from the host made our stay extra special. We cannot thank them enough and will be back again!

Matt, July 2020

We were the first guests to stay at The Wriggly Tin. It’s situated on private property with ducks and chickens and sheep around you. In a very secluded spot we could only hear the animals quietly in the background throughout the stay. The styling is beautiful and the place is very cosy. Perfect for a getaway from the city. There is outdoor seating with a fire pit and an outdoor hot tub which is easy to use. When we arrived we had scones freshly baked and milk, eggs and clotted cream (which was delicious) with jam and tea/coffee. The place is about a 10 minute drive to the town centre you will need a car to get around. We stayed for 3 nights and could of stayed another just to have a day at the The Wriggly Tin. Bring a good book and have a relax! Highly recommend and have been asked by many friends about the place.

Rebecca, July 2020

Great few days spent at the Wriggly Tin! Wonderful hosts, a cozy space with the hot tub and the cutest neighbors (sheep!)

The Duchy Barn

Freya, November 2021

An absolutely gorgeous barn tucked away the countryside. Perfect for hiding away for a few days, or exploring surrounding area. The barn has everything you could possibly need, plus a few added extras! Communication from Dean was always speedy but not too intrusive. Hopefully I'll be back for a return visit soon, if only to use that giant bath again!

Lewis, October 2021

A truly wonderful property that provided the perfect setting for a special week away. Dean & Stephen have created the perfect getaway location, with easy access to most of Cornwall, the immaculate barn conversion delivers on every level. Highly recommended, thanks again!

Nick, September 2021

Ideal location, very close to Newquay but also rural and quiet. Accommodation was amazing and had been recently refurbished to a very high standard. Dean was the perfect host, would recommend!

Joseph & Kayleigh, August 2021

We have had a truly brilliant time exploring Cornwall and The Duchy Barn has been simply the perfect base in which to do so - from the most comfortable bed to the most refreshing shower, we have loved it!


Cressida & Tim, August 2021

A wonderful stay for our honeymoon - 5* in every way - scones, luxury barn with everything you could need, amazing surroundings and to die for bath! Stephen and Dean are lovely and attentive hosts. Highly recommend!  We made it to St Agnes, St Austell, Bedruthan, Bodmin Jail but best of all Port Isaac - worth a visit especially for those Doc Martin fans! 

Louise July 2021

Great accommodation - lovely decor with everything you need for a trip.
Location was very peaceful and quiet - nice to get away from the crowds in the towns (which were only a short car journey away).
Hosts were helpful and always around if needed.
We had a great time and plan to go back - we’ll maybe try the Hideaway next door for our next trip!

Fraser, June 2021

It is impossible to fault this place. We had an amazing stay in this stunning barn. Everything is perfect from the worlds comfiest bed and fluffy towels down to the rubber duckies in the bath. It’s in a great spot, not far from the local beaches but away from the hustle and bustle. The hosts are great, easy to contact, very friendly and helpful. The home made scones and fresh eggs upon arrival are a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend!

Kimberley, May 2021

The perfect place to stay and explore Cornwall, and relax in the evenings. A beautifully converted barn with every last detail thought about. Would love to stay again!

Edward, May 2021

A truly beautiful barn restoration in a tranquil spot. Set away from busy-ness but with easy access to Newquay and the rest of Cornwall!!

Adela, May 2021

2 nights just wasn’t enough!! Everything about the barn is perfect, clean and spacious and great thought has gone into the interior design. The bed is like sleeping on a cloud!

The homemade scones and other bits left in the fridge for us were just lovely and the hosts are easy to contact and incredibly helpful.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Dutchy Barn and will definitely be back!

Tom, May 2021

Delightful place to spend some relaxing time.
The Barn is so well designed and setup. It's an amazingly tranquil spot, but not far from anywhere you might want to explore.

Wonderful hosts, highly recommend a visit!
