Beautiful secluded property

5 of 5
We had a lovely holiday at Little Marsland. The cottage was well equipped and particularly stylish. The beds were comfortable and everything worked well. It was our first visit to north Cornwall and we were impressed. We would thoroughly recommend this holiday home. The mobile broadband was painfully slow but that just stopped us working on holiday, so a bonus really!

Great chilled out two weeks at the lovely converted barn

5 of 5
Had a great two weeks at the barn. Deborah and Steve were great hosts. Very welcoming and answered any questions that we had. Had a minor issue with the hot water but that got resolved very quickly. The barn has been very well converted to a high standard. The kitchen is well stocked and the lounge very comfortable. The bedrooms and beds are also comfy. The barn is in a quiet but beautiful part of Devon with Bude a 25 min drive away. If its quiet and relaxing your after then this is the place
