  • "The quality and reliability of this cottage is top draw."

    We had a great time with no problems at all which helped make our stay very special. The owners were more than accomodating of all our requirements and left us to enjoy our holiday, relaxing and wandering around kit hill and the local area. The Cornish piskies are watching over this place. Brilliant.

    Lots of goodies on arrival, which were very welcome. The property was bliss to stay in, and the dog enjoyed running around at the back. I wish I could have stayed longer!

  • "The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure people staying have everything they need so there is nothing to criticise there."

    They are happy to answer any queries on the facilities or places to go. For people planning to stay there I would say that if you think the owners description of how to find the cottage is over-detailed then it is not. Be prepared to navigate several miles of single track roads and to lose contact with your Sat-Nav a few times :-). The instructions are vital. For techies like me, bring enough USB plugs as there are only two USB points in the cottage. Maybe that is fine for most people but half my suitcase is always filled with USB powered devices and chargers :-) There is free WiFi but mobile signals might be an issue for you so make sure you have WiFi calling enabled.

  • "Had a wonderful week at Mugwell Barn."

    The property has everything and more you could possibly need for a week in the countryside. Wonderfully clean and very well equipped. The location was perfect to explore both the north and south coasts of Cornwall. Owners Lyn & David are the perfect hosts - on hand with knowledge and advice if needed but more than happy to leave you to your own devices if that’s what you crave. Would 100% recommend and would book again.

  • "My wife and I have just returned from a wonderful holiday in the beautiful Tamar valley."

    We hit the jackpot by choosing Mugwell barn. It was everything the website said it would be. The location of the property was fantastic offering extensive views across the countryside in a wonderfully peaceful setting. The barn is fully equipped for self catering so we lacked nothing. We were able to easily drive to many coastal towns as well as enjoying the countryside around the property. Our hosts Lyn and David were very knowledgeable about the area and were happy to point us in the right direction. I couldn’t finish without saying a big thank you to them for providing us with a very tasty welcome pack. The stay in this delightful barn made the very long drive from Yorkshire worth every mile.

    The setting is extremely peaceful and the barn is really comfortable. The dog seemed to be in paradise with a lovely big garden to roam about in and the field where she could let of some steam off lead. Note that the surrounding roads are narrow but quiet and with plenty of passing points.

    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?

  • "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.

    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!

    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.

About the location


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.
