    • “Beautiful barn conversion, very quiet and peaceful. A great central location to explore all of Cornwall. Great information provided by the barn owners (who were lovely). Thank you for a wonderful holiday!”

    Mrs Brown, Ipswich, June 2018

    • “The owners were extremely helpful and welcoming. The welcome cake was delicious and an unexpected touch. It was lambing season so we all got to feed the lambs which was just as much a treat for the adults as it was the children. The cottage was lovely and clean with everything we needed. It was also really warm!”

    Mrs Eldridge-Carruth, ROMFORD, March 2018
