What can i say Hufflepuff was perfect in every way, i wish i could stay there forever. The location was perfect for exploring all the beautiful little hidden gems that Cornwall has to offer and the lodge was a lovely and comfortable home to return to after each eventful day to relax, the bed was more comfortable than my own, slept like a log the whole stay. Thank you to you both for being wonderful hosts and for nothing being too much trouble, and your hospitality was fabulous. I would recommend Hufflepuff to anyone and will certainly visit again, it has everything and more that you could need to make your break as special as it can be, thanks again to you both and hope to see you again soon.

Milk and teabags were also available. The facilities were excellent, nothing was overlooked, little touches like dishwasher tablets, toilet and kitchen rolls, washing up liquid etc. The garden is lovely and very well tended with a summerhouse full of helpful brochures and information for holidaymakers use, Julian & Kate are wonderful hosts and full of interesting and useful advice on the best beaches, walks, eating out, nothing was too much trouble we just had to ask. We were only there for a week and it was not long enough to see and do everything that was available, we would definitely visit again. Highly recommended, thank you Chypons Barn for a wonderful holiday. Kind regards Dave & Karen Ashby
