“We came from South Wales for a little getaway with our beloved 11-year-old Spaniel and had the most lovely stay at The Barn. A hairdryer, an iron, a toasty wood burner, a TV with freeview - even tea, milk and biscuits - just absolutely everything you could ever need was provided, and the welcome book gave some great tips and recommendations too. The barn was also clean, with a comfortable bed for a good night’s sleep. Saint Just is a sweet little town within walking distance of Cape Cornwall and just a short drive away from places like Land’s End, Penzance or Saint Ives. Overall, Tinner’s Barn is great value for money. We will definitely be recommending it to friends.”

“Wonderful little gem in a bustling Cornish town.”

Christine – May 2024 

“Tinner’s Barn had everything we needed, including detailed instructions on how to find the place, parking, recommend walks and trips out with directions, adequate advice on how to use heating/oven/shower etc., books and DVDs if it rains, a little garden area, and nice furnishings. The place has a lovely rustic look which was perfect for our romantic little holiday. They were flexible enough to let us stay just for three nights, and were helpful and communicative before and during our stay. It takes less than 5 minutes to walk to the pubs and shops, and St Just is ideally located for exploring all corners of Penwith.”
