  • "Had a fantastic stay as a family of 2 adults and a 6 year old, in one of the 3 holiday cottages at this location."

    The owners were very welcoming, recommended places to eat and visit. The location was secluded but on the doorstep of good, fast road links. The setting of the shared garden was tranquil with big fish pond and fruit trees, and we felt safe leaving our child to play with other children who happened to stay in the adjacent cottage. Lots of toys for the kids, sandpit and gorgeous Wendy house. The parking right outside was a godsend. The cottage was quiet at night and the beds were comfy. The shower was powerful and hot water was never a problem. The kitchen was extremely clean (like new) and well equipped with items you don't usually get for a holiday rental e.g pizza cutter, knife selection, foil, pegs. The fridge and freezer were big enough for what we bought. We managed to get WiFi strong enough for streaming services. It was a nice touch having the shared utility room with board games, body board, wind breakers available to borrow. We visited both north and south coastlines and it was a handy location for both. Thank you so much. We can't wait to stay again!

    We LOVED the cream tea on arrival, and were so at peace watching our girls play in the vast garden with beautiful views.

    . cottage is exactly like the picture. Owners very welcoming. Garden is beautiful with stunning views. Parking spot for each cottage. Lots of information and local restaurants, places to visit in a folder collected by the owners. Cottage has everything you need, fridge, freezer, microwave, oven, kettle, toaster, washing machine. The cream tea and scones where lovely... also the milk, tea bags, coffee and butter where great on arrival too after a long drive to get there. Would highly recommend this cottage and would love to visit and stay again. Thank you from the Richardsons

  • "The cottage is comfortable, clean and well-equipped; there was always lots of very hot water and the shower ran consistently."

    The fridge is very small and we couldn’t fit everything in that we wanted to. The small lounge is cosy and soon warms up with the electric fire. The sofa and armchairs are comfortable and better than those we find in many rental properties. The bed is comfortable and we slept well. It was good to have a CD player as we didn’t want to watch TV all the time. The Wifi signal was very weak and inconsistent such that the connection was often dropped, though this was less of a problem in the bedroom. However, the data speed was reasonable. The cream tea on arrival was much appreciated and the jam was delicious. The location is delightful and peaceful and the garden with its huge pond is beautiful and a lovely place to sit when the weather is nice, which it was most of the time. Access from the nearby A30 is quick and, although the last half mile is a single track lane with only one passing place, we only once encountered another car. Arriving on the A30 from the east necessitates a right turn across the busy dual carriageway and similarly if one wants to travel west after leaving the property; the road is often very busy and we had to wait several minutes for a gap in the traffic on some occasions. We had an excellent lunch at the Eliot Arms in Tregadillett and a good value steak dinner at the Archer Arms in Lewannick, to which we walked despite the long 1 in 7 hill (total walking time about 30 minutes). Tuesday is their steak night and, although it was quiet, we were told it’s advisable to book. There are plenty of nice places to visit by car and the Cheesewring, easily accessed from Minions on the east flank of Bodmin Moor, is a remarkable geological feature worth seeing. We had an excellent week with good, dry weather and loved the practical but peaceful location.

    Cream tea was welcomed and having a pint of milk in the fridge gratefully received after a long journey. Property close to Launceston for shops, restaurants and takeaways. Lots of good information provided by hosts in folders in the property. Another great break with Sykes in Cornwall.

  • "An ideal location for exploring North, East, & West Cornwall & South Devon."

    Be warned, tho', that the seclusion of this property comes at the cost of a mile long single track road with no passing places. Also the shared conservatory is not attached to the property but across the garden. Really lovely place.

    Lovely setting with great views. Only Ithing I would say is that the fridge/freezer is a little small so with family of 4 it is a challenge. But that wouldn't stop us returning as it was very comfortable and great spot.

    An easy drive to both the north and south coast beaches. We struggled with the Wifi, there was plenty of signal strength but the internet connection was very intermittent and slow. I had to purchase a 5 day BT Openzone pass to connect via a nearby property.

    The cottage was perfect foe me and my 2 children. I could not fault the cottage itself, nor the facilities!! The hosts were truly lovely - nothing was too much of a bother and we were welcomed with a cream tea...LUSH! There was nothing that hadn't been thought of - fully stocked kitchen ware (even the small things had been thought of!), washing machine, tumble dryer, and a fab shared room of which beach towels, body boards, board games, books etc were all free for guests to borrow. Beautiful location, peaceful and quiet and lots to do in the surrounding areas. I highly recommend!

  • "This Cottage was the perfect place to stay to explore North Cornwall with its beautiful beaches, gardens and harbours full of character."

    With only 30min to the northern coast and 45min to the south, you can always tailor your day out and not go very far to explore new things every day. We had a lovely welcome from the owners and some tasty scones, some milk and butter in the fridge as well to get started. The cottage has all a family needs for a stay of a week or two from a washing machine and iron up to crabbing basket and outdoor games. Really pleased and so were the children with the cars and wendy house to play in the garden. Definitely, recommend.

Trevosper Barn

An attractive group containing three stone cottages and a barn conversion, in a countryside setting with fabulous views over the fields from the garden. The cottages are next to each other in a courtyard and lie within the hamlet of Polyphant. The owners also live within the courtyard in a converted farmhouse. This is a quiet, peaceful rural location, 5 miles west of the historic town of Launceston but within minutes of the main A30 route through Cornwall. The large, half-acre communal garden outside these Launceston cottages backs onto open countryside, and has a conservatory overlooking the wildlife pond; visitors can enjoy some quiet time here, with the added benefit of a small library of books and coffee-making facilities. There are some fabulous traditional pubs nearby, most of which are child-friendly and many of which accept dogs. The nearest to these Launceston cottages is only 1.5 miles away. This group of Launceston cottages are in an ideal location for exploring a whole range of pursuits, especially the dramatic North Cornwall coastline, including Widemouth Bay, which is particularly good for surfing, rock pools and beach games and is also dog-friendly. Walkers are spoilt for choice, with Bodmin Moor on the doorstep, dominated by dramatic granite tors which tower over the sweeping expanses of open moorland. Why not take a family cycle ride along the gentle reaches of the nearby Camel Trail, a traffic-free route following the course of the river through woodland and moorland? These Launceston cottages offer a great base to explore and unwind together.

About the location

POLYPHANT

Launceston 5 miles; Truro 41 miles.

Just inside the county boundary, this delightful village is situated among rolling meadowland, wooded valleys and winding country lanes. A few miles to the east, the ancient county town of Launceston with its shops, leisure centre, Norman castle and local history museum looks out over the deeply wooded valley and the River Tamar, while in the other direction lie the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, with its craggy tors, spectacular scenery and Daphne Du Maurier’s famous Jamaica Inn. With a wealth of tiny hamlets, country pubs and interesting walks nearby, there is also superb fishing, abundant wildlife and a number of golf courses to tempt the visitor. The north coast beaches are only 14 miles away and the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan can be reached within 40 minutes; Penzance and the far west are just over an hour by car and to the east there’s the wild open spaces of Dartmoor. A magical area for those seeking peace, tranquillity, stunning scenery and a wide range of attractions.
