    It’s so peaceful with lovely views and always feels comfortable and relaxed. It’s also nice seeing the wildlife around the house. James is really helpful with any queries and I always have a good holiday. Hope to stay again in the future.

  • "We loved our stay at Middle Barn, and would very much like to return at some point."

    The Barn feels so private in an idyllic, peaceful setting, but is located very conveniently for shops and facilities in Launceston (we walked down one evening as it isn't far), and the A30 close-by provides an excellent starting point for visiting many places. The views from the Barn are beautiful, surrounded by rolling, open countryside with panoramic views. The Barn itself was clean, comfortable and beautifully equipped and had everything we needed. Our Labrador loved the freedom, and with a quarter of a mile driveway bordered by grass and trees, he had plenty of space to run around. With resident buzzards and house-martins giving us daily aerial displays, there was always something to sit back and watch.

  • "Beautiful barn conversion in an absolutely amazing, peaceful and quiet location."

    There were a couple of irks which would stop us going back, namely the slippery, badly worn flooring (both we and the dog struggled for grip) and the feeling that the place generally needed some TLC. It's a shame, because it's genuinely one of the loveliest locations we've ever been to.

  • "The barn was lovely."

    Exactly as described. Very clean and comfortable. The owner, James, came across to welcome us and ask if there was anything we needed which was lovely. He had also left us some wine and milk for our arrival which was very kind and very welcome. Can not fault this property. It was lovely and so so peaceful.

  • "Lovely warm cottage with a view."

    Not far from Launceston but in a location that feels like you were in the middle of the countryside. Our dog enjoyed the underfloor heating but found the laminate a bit slippery. Only 2 very, very minor issues, the ice box section of the fridge needs defrosting and there's no potato masher or cheese grater but if you like eating out no problem!

  • "We loved everything about this property."

    The cottage is always immaculately clean. There is parking right by it. It is warm and very comfortable with stunning views from all the windows. Very comfortable bed. The barn is not huge, but more than big enough for a couple and a dog, and a cosy snuggle down at night. If you like peace and quiet this is a great holiday for you, Launceston shops are about a mile away.

    We'd have liked to walk into the town but the road felt too treacherous for that because it was so narrow and traffic was quite fast. The cottage is in a lovely, peaceful setting and we really appreciated the woodland for walking our dog who, we felt, was very welcome. We also appreciated the welcome wine and milk. Wifi would have been very useful especially as we have to book so many activities at the moment.

  • "Really enjoyed the property in a very tranquil setting."

    One minor criticism is that the pictures give the illusion that the rear garden is totally secure for pets to roam freely. It isn't. We purchased a couple of windbreaks which sealed off the open end of the garden which ensured our dog couldn't 'escape'. Other than that I can fully recommend the property to anyone looking for a peaceful break. Well equipped. Nice touch by the owner to greet us and provide some milk, tea and a bottle of wine. Would love to go back in the future
