    • “Stayed at Mugwell Barn over Christmas with my partner and our dog. A really, good location 35ish minutes to the North and South Cornwall coasts. We all had a lovely time, the cottage has some Christmas decorations up and we had some nice goodies (the scones were amazing) from Lyn and David. There are loads of places that are doggy friendly in the area and were recommended by David a walk about half a mile away from the cottage, along a river (the dog's favourite). Every evening we enjoyed in front of the log burner, and had a quiet Christmas in Cornwall. What more could you want?”

    Miss Harris, Yeovil, December 2018

    • “Great tranquil location with some excellent woodland walks. The property itself is amazing and has anything you could possibly need. Lynn and Dave the owners are extremely nice, friendly and very welcoming. Would definitely recommend.”

    Mrs Chambers-ward, Birmingham, November 2018

    • “On our arrival, Indi the springer spaniel and I received a warm Cornish welcome matched only by a scrumptious home baked 2 scone jam/cream/butter combo a short while after settling in to the esthetically pleasing, cosy barn conversion. From the patio doors the property has a wonderful outlook across fields, (the first of which was 'ours') a small valley and more fields towards Kitt Hill on the horizon. As a dog owner, having access to a stock-proof fenced field a mere chickens stride away from the property was a fantastic resource which was gratefully utilised on a daily basis. With the hosts property and Mugwell Cottage standing in close proximity to the Barn, and being on-hand for any whim or eventuality, you would never have known this as our whole week was one of peace and tranquility.”

    Mr Lees, Bury, October 2018

    • “We had a fabulous visit to Mugwell Barn in Luckett, Cornwall. The barn was a perfect little haven of peace and tranquillity. The hosts were extremely welcoming and the barn is maintained to an excellent standard. It was fully kitted out with everything we could possibly have needed during our stay. Our dog especially loved the 'dog field' where he was able to run around, safely secured away from any roads or farm animals! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and just wish we could have stayed for longer!”

    Miss Collins, MANCHESTER, August 2018

    • “Beautiful setting. Accommodation as it states on the tin.Perfect!! Dog friendly. Welcome pack of home made scones,fresh cream and strawberry jam plus a bottle of wine ! Our sort of welcome pack. Amazing views from the lounge. Local dog friendly pubs. Visits at night from local foxes in the meadow. We will be back. Phil”

    Mr Onions, Walsall, August 2018

    • “A wonderful location to be based at for trips to the north or south coast. The property has everything you will need and the hosts were very friendly and accommodating. I would score 11 out of 10 and will definitely be returning. For all of you who are about to stay at Mugwell Barn ..... enjoy.”

    Mr Davidson, Northampton, August 2018

    • “The Barn is a wonderful conversion, super clean an cosy. The location and views are stunning, with easy access to all areas of Cornwall and Devon. The owners and their pets are helpful and accommodating and supplied us with some goodies for our stay. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Collins, Salisbury, July 2018

    • “This is our third lucky time booking with Skyes...communication and booking an easy process We wanted a dog friendly accommodation ..that was our next consideration We wanted to stay on the Devon/Cornwall see friends in both counties We like unusual looking properties. .with a history which was there with Mugwell Barn..a small barn conversion...for 2 A well equpped propery providing for all eventualities. Furnishings and fittings of high standard and quality Peaceful, tranquil surroundings...but easy access to coastline and cities if we had a very varied time at Mugwell Barn for our week...even walked across country to the local pub Good communication with the owners Wine scones milk butter orange juice on arrival a bonus The general environment a real treat”

    Ms Butterworth, Cambs, June 2018

    • “The aspect and quietness. Freshly made scones,cream and strawberry jam plus a bottle of red wine on arrival. Perfect.”

    Mr Onions, Walsall, May 2018

    • “The location was fantastic for visits to North and South coasts. Plenty of local pubs and Callington has a decent Tescos store 10 minutes away. The barn is in an idyllic location with far reaching views of Dartmoor and across the valley. The interior is very tastefully appointed and to a high standard. We were greeted by Lyn the owner and had complimentary wine, bread, milk and scones and cream. They have also accumulated plenty of tourist information for guests to examine. For dog owners please be aware the barn does not have a secure garden as such so you will have to supervise at all times. There is a nice field immediately next to the patio and it was ideal for our 8 month puppy.”

Regional Information

LUCKETT Callington is a Cornish market town, rich in mining heritage and overlooked by Kit Hill, the highest point in the area, donated to the people of Cornwall by Prince Charles to celebrate the birth of Prince William. From the top of Kit Hill there are fabulous views across south-east Cornwall as far as Plymouth Sound. Callington is set in the heart of the Tamar Valley, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and offers a good selection of shops, inns and cafes, as well as being the home of Ginsters Cornish pasties. A few miles away, the quaint village of Calstock clings to the steep banks of the river Tamar and is dominated by the splendid Calstock Railway Viaduct, a giant 11-arched stone construction supporting one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines running through the Tamar Valley. Other interesting places along the river are Cotehele, a beautiful historic house and gardens owned by the National Trust with a small quay and inn, and Morwellham Quay, a theme park that staged a living history production for the BBC and where visitors can explore the rich mining heritage and watch blacksmiths, potters and craftsmen at work. The pannier market town of Tavistock is only nine miles from Callington and is well worth a visit on your way to a day’s walk on Dartmoor. A splendid base to explore south Cornwall and West Devon.
