  • "Cleaning appears to be left to previous occupancy, without appropriate check by owners?"

    Jam on table cloth, clothing in drawers, spiders and established webs in 2 rooms. Sky lights in need of replacement. Flaking paint within recess and condensation to bathroom (extractor was activated), smaller bedroom inparticular had heavy condensation. Lounge sofa and sofa bed are in dire need of replacement. Sitting on sofa bed then standing up will demonstrate how far the seating cushions have/remain sunken.

    We are sorry to hear that your stay did not meet your expectations. Our cleaner was new and I personally fixed some cleaning issues but I must have missed some. I do apologise. New Sofas have been on order for a while now but delivery times are very long, I would hope they arrive soon. As this is an old cottage with 3 solid stone external walls the humidity does become a problem if all the heating is left on high and windows are shut. We do have a dehumidifier which could have been made available on request. Property Owner

  • "Very enjoyable base for us in Cornwall."

    Easy access to the main road and we managed to visit many places during our weeks stay. The cottage is lovely and very well equipped, but I did miss the dishwasher although I understand their wasn't any room for one. We enjoyed the garden and pond in the sunshine. Friendly owners who were happy to chat and the cream tea on arrival went down very well. We booked quite late and were limited on our property search due to Covid. We feel lucky that we came across this lovely place I did miss taking a walk to the shop but with this virus still around it is perfect to keep yourself safe and escape from the throng of people. Would happily recommended and revisit

  • "Very small there’s no way 4 people would be comfortable 2 people were ok ."

    Website states the pub is 1.5 miles away the nearest pub is 4.5 miles it’s called kings head inn and the countryman pub that’s advertised is more like 6.8 miles and when we arrived it was and has been closed for sometime it maybe an idea to update your website to save time travelling to places . Could do with some updating and looking at the random slugs that appear all over the place even found one cooked to the side of the kettle they could invest in slug pellets or whatever you use to get rid of the slimey things , they must have super slugs in Devon because every morning slime cover the larger bedroom floor . Wallpaer peeling off of bedroom walls and quite a bit of damp in the corner of the room . Trying to open and close the window was awkward with the stick left there and pulling the blind down with it just impossible had to stand on a stool .We knew it was remote but getting in and out of the lane was a challenge very long lane with no pull ins so you are backwards and forwards trying to get through and it’s quite a busy lane and people drive very fast down it really quite scary

    Dear guest, Were very sorry that your holiday did not live up to your expectations. The vast majority of our guests enjoy their stay at Trevosper Barn Cottages. As mentioned at your arrival at the cottage, we always prefer to hear about any issues or concerns as they occur and not until after your departure. This would have allowed us to help, e.g. give you some slug pellets and point out the 2 nearest pubs. As this didn't happen, we can only assure you that we willll turn any reasonable feedback into actionable improvements for future guests, wherever that's possible. We apologize for any inconvenience caused during your stay and wish you the best in the future Property Owner

    Well appointed and comfortable barn conversion with easy access to main road routes to head off and explore. A great place to take the dog as great grounds for them too. Well worth a stay or two....

  • "Lovely accommodation for two and the dog."

    Bed was a bit small for us and the upstairs became quite warm through the night, so didn’t sleep too well. Garden was nice to sit out in on a warm afternoon/evening and the views and birdsong were relaxing. Would stay again and recommend to friends.

  • "Fantastic location ideal for sightseeing around the North Cornish coast and visiting local areas of interest."

    The cottage met our needs as we are 3 people and this fitting perfectly with the layout. The kitchen was suitably kitted out with essential needs for self catering. I needed WIFI to do some work mid-week and there were no problems with internet connection. We were warm enough and all the storage heaters worked. We were able to use the facilities in the conservatory area e.g. washing machine and tumble drier which was necessary as we were walking and had a dog - so all of us were muddy. The information booklets were accurate - though we would have like a map showing where all the ideas and recommendations were in relation to the cottage. We were made to feel very welcome with the cream tea provided on arrival - which really was a lovely thought and touch after a long drive. The only thing missing for us was a bit more hanging and drying space or even a rack in the convservatory with warm air to dry our wet suits and store them .

    So many places within easy reach. Lovely property for us in a beautiful garden. We came at a bad time when everything had to be booked due to COVID but we managed to adapt by booking local pubs for evening meals or by having main whilst out at lunchtime and eating lighter meal in cottage during the evening. Very relaxing holiday. Owners of cottage very friendly.

    We were greeted by a cream tea on arrival and set about that very soon after getting our bags in ... lush. The view is beautiful and so peaceful. Ulli, Loraine and Cooper made us most welcome. We spent every day out and about so didn't really have time to sit about the garden, but the first evening we had a spell in it before sundown, most restful. A great location, 2 mins down a lane and then onto the A30 for rapid access to the rest of Cornwall.

  • "We had a wonderful holiday and our hosts were lovely."

    We wouldn't book this cottage again unless it was just myself and my husband as it was too small for our party that included my dad after my mum passed away and our 2 dogs and us. There are only 2 sofas and they were both very old and uncomfortable. The kitchen was so tiny that nothing was where we expected it........the cutlery was on the other side of the kitchen above the freezer, not near the plates etc. This cottage is ideal for a couple and 1 child but no more. The property did have some dust but I'm very picky as I'm a private 6 star housekeeper. The cream tea that was waiting for us when we arrived was delicious and a lovely touch. The cottage is in a lovely location and we found it easy to get to lots of interesting places. There was lots of information in the cottage too including dog friendly beach recomendations.

    So we were a bit wary of how they would settle in a new place, we didn’t have to look up for places to take our dogs, as all the information was in our accommodation. Which was a big help.

    Owners available for help and advice but not intrusive. Added bonus was the beautiful garden and pond which meant relaxing pre dinner drinks and snacks every evening, regardless of the weather, looking out over the Cornish countryside watching Hawks and Housemartins fly about. A truly relaxing stay - nothing to hear except the birds and the occasional clinking of wine glasses!

  • "The Wagon House was a very well equipped comfortable cottage."

    The owners who lived adjacent to the cottage were helpful, friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. The garden, although shared with two other cottages, was large well kept and afforded excellent views of the surrounding countryside. We found the location perfect for exploring both coasts and Bodmin moor. I have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

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.
