"This barn conversion is on a hill overlooking a valley with wonderful views of farmlands and part of Launceston. It is spacious and well appointed with oven, hot plates, microwave, toaster and washing machine. Accesss is via a bitumen driveway with a good parking area adjacent to the barn. You can enjoy a walk along a path through wooded area at the bottom of the farm. The barn has underfloor heating which maintained a constant cosy temperature throughout our stay. There is also a good towel warmer in the bathroom. Shower over bath but the bath is shaped to provide a good standing area for showering which is really good. The bed was comfortable. The barn is beautifully presented and welcoming. It provides a great base from which to explore Cornwall and adjacent Devon, with Tintagel and Port Isaac about 40 minutes away, The Eden Project about 45 minutes drive and Lands End about 1hr 40 minutes away. Alternatively the barn also provides a pleasant relaxing environment and if the weather turns sour, it provides a cosy retreat with good TV options. There is no WiFi access so I had to detach from the internet and relax for the week. Overall this barn provides a lovely rural retreat in Cornwall and we would love to come back some day."

The property was beautifully decorated and cleaned to a very high standard and we arrived to tea, coffee and a bottle of wine (much needed after a long car journey!) Surrounded by fields and a small woodland it provided plenty of entertainment for our dog and was nearby to many other walking areas, too many to fit in in one week!
