21 Best Barn Conversions - Holiday Cottages to Rent

When you picture your perfect Cornish holiday cottage chances are it has solid stone walls, oozes charm, rural views and is cosy, yet has all the mod-cons. That pretty much describes a barn conversion down to a tee - throw in a woodburner and, if you're lucky, a hot tub and you have the perfect, romantic accommodation for your holiday in Cornwall.

As the name suggests these beautiful cottages are converted from fromer farm buildings, usually barns, but sometimes stables, granaries or even cow sheds. And they really do come in all shapes and sizes - from diminutive single bedroom snugs right up to 4 or even 6 bedroom properties sleeping groups of 10+ people. In addition virtually all our barn conversion holiday rentals come with  a garden where you can enjoy some al-fresco dining and let the kids run free.
