Lanxton Barn - a barn conversion that sleeps 10 guests in 5 bedrooms
Brilliant for a family holiday!
We wanted somewhere that accommodated us, our children and our grand children and in Lanxton barn we found the perfect solution. Inside was spacious and well thought out. One very large room with a well equipped kitchen at one end and a smaller room for quieter moments. Indoor entertainment to stop the moans (of the grown ups) on rainy days with two TVs, a pool table, table tennis and air football - what more can you ask for. A hot tub - they've got one! We were given a warm welcome by the owner and then we explored the barn and found freshly baked cakes that were delicious in the kitchen. Outside provided enjoyment for our grand children with swings and a climbing frame. The novelty of geese, sheep and cows as neighbours kept them entertained. A very enjoyable holiday for all three generations.
Big Family Break
This was our family treat for each other, a weekend away from everything where we could park up the car kick off our shoes and just chill for the weekend. A Langton Barn was just the right place for this.
On arrival we were treated by the owner to some fresh baked cakes, they were superb.
A very private location with ample space for everyone including our dog, this the gardens securely fenced in (so young children would be safe to). The patio area was perfect, especially as we had great weather to sit outside and chill with a glass of wine.
The accommodation was huge, five large twin / double immaculately furnished and decorated bedrooms, two en-suite and a family bathroom were modern, clean and fresh.
The upstairs living area was perfect, so big and spacious eight of us had plenty of room to cook, play games, sit, eat and just enjoy everyone’s company (it would easily accommodate 10).
The kitchen was well equipped with modern appliances.
Finally the hot tub was the icing on the cake, situated under the balcony means weather is not going to stop you making good use of it.
All in all a great place, highly recommend to everyone.
A beautiful place and location the owner was very helpful.All my family enjoyed it greatly,our children and grandchildren absolutely loved the barn l don’t think you could find any better property and location beautiful.
Superb barn + great location = fabulous holiday!
Had a fabulous holiday. The barn was of a very high standard, well equipped and had plenty of space. It felt like home from home, there were plenty of things for everyone (pool table, hot tub, swings, board games) and a small library of book swaps. With two master bedrooms with ensuite it was perfect for two families. The owners were very welcoming, baking rock buns for our arrival, and also very accommodating in storing our bikes. The location was convenient for both Cornwall and Devon and there was certainly plenty to see and do. We would definitely stay again.
We had a warm welcome from the owners and were delighted with all aspects of Lanxton Barn. Plenty of space, peaceful location, very comfortable and well equipped. Ideally situated for visiting both coasts and Bodmin Moor. We hope to return !!
Amazing place to stay.
Fantastic accommodation in a lovely part of Cornwall. Definitely recommend a stay here. The hot tub was very inviting after walks on the moors and days at the beach.
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Steins empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have a number of properties nearby - Lanhydrock House, Trerice, Cotehele and Antony (used for Disney's Alice in Wonderland), Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Domesday Book.
To the east lies the Tamar Valley which is a stunning, quiet, picturesque region with some beautiful villages including Calstock with its impressive Viaduct dominating the village, Calstock Quay was originally used for transportation of tin as there is a deep water navigable channel at the top of the tides, although the construction of the Tamar Valley Railway in the early 20th century led to most cargo being transported by rail. Further up stream is Morwellham Quay with its fantastic open air museum, Morwellham Quay has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO, the cultural arm of the UN, and is part of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape. Tavistock is just over the border in Devon, an ancient stannary and market town on the edge of Dartmoor, it has a wealth of fine pubs, restaurants, supermarkets and tourist attractions including ruins of a Benedictine Abbey which was founded in 961.
The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it's a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to it's position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!
