We wanted a stay in a cosy barn away from the hustle and bustle which is exactly what we got and the barn is so close too many beautiful places! On arrival Riki met us and gave us a tour showing us all we needed to know. The barn was extremely clean and cosy and very well equipped. There is a folder in the barn providing plenty of information of things to do and see in the area including walking routes most of which we walked and the scenery was spectacular. The barn is perfect for exploring both Cornwall and Devon. We definitely hope to return. Thanks Riki and Martin
