    The Barn has everything we and our dog needed. Watching the wildlife around us was captivating, buzzards flying and landing so close to the Barn and the nosy bullocks in the field around us. We were reluctant to leave, Maggie our dog, especially as she loves it there.

  • "We had a very wet and windy week but the cottage was comfortable and within easy reach of Launceston."

    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
