  • "Lovely holiday property for our brief stay, plenty of room, probably the only downside was something about which nobody can control - the weather!"

    It rained every day except our going home day, but we have had holidays in Cornwall at least once a year for over 30-years now so we know the sun does not shine all of the time.

  • "The property is beautiful, very well equipped, very clean and a lovely welcome pack."

    Directions were clear and easy to find. The property itself is perfect, my only criticism is the outside space and hot tub. Nowhere in the description did it mention the hot tub was wood fired, and there were not any pictures of the hot tub on the website (this had since changed as I have checked), therefore we were not prepared for this. Upon arrival, the hot tub was not lit, there were no instructions on how to use it, so we were a bit clueless. Eventually got through to the staff on site, who said "oh did you not receive the PDF instructions", no we did not. So he lit it, and we had to wait 4 hours until it was warm enough to use! I was then told they supply two bags of wood, after then it is £5 a bag, again this is not mentioned anywhere on the website, so this wasn't ideal for us. It was a lot.of effort to keep the tub warm enough to use for the week, and there is no way of regulating the temperature of even a thermometer to see what the temperature is, so.then it was the other extreme and it was too hot for my children to use, I could barely put my foot in it. This was the largest negative point for us, it was not easy to use, cost us a lot in wood for the week, and was actually rather stressful to manage, instead of relaxing to use. There was no filter on the tub, the water was filthy after 3 days, the staff came on our last day and added a filter and chemicals, but we had finished by then. This would.put us off coming back, which is a shame as the property itself is so beautiful. The garden is not suitable for small dogs. Although there is a wire fence around, my dog could get through some gaps, and also got her head caught in the wire. I checked before booking how secure the garden is so this was a bit disappointing too. If you have a large dog it would be perfect. Lots of woody area with animal holes dug out, again my small dog got stuck a few times. This meant we couldn't just let her out in the garden, we had to keep her on her lead or stay with us the whole time. Beautiful garden generally, but just not suitable for a small dog. The shop and pub are not really walking distance away, the lanes are very narrow and not suitable for children and dogs. The farm ship 3 miles away is lovely, but is on a main road so again you can't walk, worth a visit though. All in all we had a lovely week, would I recommend? Yes, as long as you don't need a hot tub all the time or a secure garden. Beautiful property couldn't fault that.

  • "Lovely cottage on a beautiful area."

    The cottage is well equipped and the owners only too pleased to help if needed.

  • "We had a lovely time at the Woodcutters Barn in Launceston."

    On arrival there was a gift of scones, jam, clotted cream, wine and coffee, which was relly nice. The hot tub was really good, clean, hot, bubbly, relaxing, brand new and a real treat. The house was amazing with everything you could need, really cosy and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be booking with them again.

  • "Wonderful property set in a great garden, which the little one loved running around and playing with her ball."

    The house is lovely with a rustic charm. There was an amazing hamper of goodies along with flowers provided on arrival. Really comfortable house with everything somebody needs. Excellent showers and water pressure. Kitchen has everything you need with everything being beautifully clean. The gas oven does take a bit of getting used to and is not very efficient. The owners checked in a number of times to ensure everything was well and made suggestions when we were looking for beaches to visit. We had no issue with mobile signal, so it was no issue to us, but it appears that no WiFi code is provided? There were an awful lot of flies in the house on arrival that took a while to get rid off. The hot tub was wonderful and relaxing, however disappointing that it was not fully working yet. Which is not noted in the listing. Hopefully it will soon. The bench in the garden is broken and needs to be replaced. This was our first visit to Cornwall and this property was a lovely base for our adventures and we hope to return in the future.

The property

Launceston 6.2 miles.

Tucked away in the rural village of Rezare in Cornwall, a short drive south of Launceston, lies this charming, two-bedroom barn conversion, Woodcutters.

Boasting pristine lawned gardens, tastefully-presented interiors complete with artwork, exposed wooden beams and black tiling throughout, along with superb views of the surrounding countryside, this delightful holiday home welcomes a family of four and their well-behaved dog for a relaxing escape near the Dartmoor National Park.

Park up off-road next to your lovely new lodgings and make yourself at home once you've unpacked your belongings.

In the spacious, well-appointed, open-plan living area, you will discover a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with all the appliances required to rustle up a tasty, home-cooked dinner.

Savour your meals at the dining table before you gather to enjoy a film on the Smart TV by the warmth of a woodburning stove.

When the weather permits, head outdoors and strike up the barbecue for some alfresco dining or indulge in a dip in the outdoor wood fired hot tub as you gaze up to watch as the starry night sky begins to appear overhead.

When sleep calls, a large super-king and a king with en-suite shower offer tranquil sanctuaries wherein you and your loved ones can settle for a well-earned rest.

If you can tear yourself away from your fabulous new dwelling, head out to explore what the local area has to offer.

A short car trip will take you to the Stoke Climsland Post Office, where you can stock up on homely essentials, whilst the quaint pub of The Springer Spaniel can be reached on foot from your new accommodation, the perfect spot for a hearty pub lunch!

For a day out, head to Launceston, an ancient town filled and surrounded by a wealth of notable attractions, such as the historic Launceston Castle and Launceston Steam Railway, the pristine landscapes of Hidden Valley, and the family-friendly Trethorne Leisure Park.

Whatever you get up to during your next visit to Cornwall, be sure to book Woodcutters as your base.
