Not that we have anywhere to put it. Perfectly formed and beautifully furnished it had everything we needed for a romantic break. The village is lovely and the garden is charming. Leonie and Rob made us feel very welcome. We can't wait to return! Couldn't recommend highly enough :)

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We had a really lovely big family Christmas and New Year at The Old Barn. Some of our family live in Crackington Haven and Launceston and several stayed in Tintagel all within easy reach of the house which has ample parking. Everything we needed was there - in the lounge there are three large comfortable sofas, really good ambient lighting and the wood burning stove is easy to get going and makes the lounge warm within minutes in fact the whole house heats up very quickly in Winter. Also the owner provides a never ending stock of logs (unusual in our experience of renting holiday cottages). The kitchen is very well equipped with quality pots and pans and there are lots of utensils including scales and a mixer. The towels and bed linen provided are of good quality although the duvets were summer weight which meant some of us had to use blankets as well to keep warm but these were also provided. The garden is beautiful with lots of birds visiting (and a black cat) but we obviously didn't have the weather to use it properly. On several evenings though, including New Year, several of us did brave the cold (with a drink or two) and stargazed from the terrace - with a star map it was great to identify the stars and constellations - absolutely fabulous on clear nights. The broadband internet is very fast with no drop outs and the TV is great with loads of channels. The owner is warm and friendly and is very responsive to any requests or problems. We have racked our brains to come up with an improvement and the only small thing we can think of is that the water pressure for the showers could be improved. However we found the hot water constant and plentiful. We would have no hesitation in staying at this comfortable, warm and inviting house again and hope to do so in the future. We absolutely loved it!
