                                                                                                      What a wonderful place to stay for quiet family time, but in a great location to explore North and South Cornwall. The barn was perfect for the 4 of us, in fact the barn has so much space it was not hard to find a quiet place to relax and enjoy the views. The garden is huge and as the weather was really good we took advantage of having our breakfast out on the patio most mornings. The barn was exactly as described and upon arrival found the barn had been cleaned to a high standard. All the facilities in the barn were in good working order and had no issues with any during our stay, and the newly installed power showers are a great addition. The use of the log burner in the front room on the colder evenings was a welcomed treat. Clare's (the owner) customer service was informative and punctual and any questions we had were dealt with straight away, her knowledge of the area was good and received with thanks and her recommendation of a Sunday roast at The Old Wainhouse Inn was spot on, although we all had to go for a walk afterwards having ate a little too much!! I would recommend without hesitation and look forward to booking again in the near future. Thank you Clare for letting us use your wonderful holiday retreat.

Immaculately clean (and I'm very fussy!), beautifully decorated and very comfy, a real find. Owners live on site, so handy if there's a problem but not intrusive. Crean teas and crene eggs on arrival much appreciated. Wouldn't hestitate to recommend. Thank you Vicky and Jason
