  • “The Barn at Little Resugga exceeded all our expectations and we had the most enjoyable trip to Cornwall in over 20 years.”

    The owners were very friendly and welcoming and every home comfort had been thought of. The Barn was spotless, and we wanted for nothing. Truly a place to relax and unwind. We couldn't recommend this property highly enough.
