Friendly & helpful owners, perfectly equipped rooms, all is well organized, a silent place, a wonderful garden- small in size but great in character, beautiful sunshine is possible the whole day, distant motorway is not disturbing, no permanent traffic near,
Sightseeings are only a few km around. The West Bay, Carlyon Bay, Eden Project, Lanhydrock House are only a few destinations.
It was wonderful to host Walter and Angela who had travelled all the way from Vienna to stay here. We're therefore very pleased that they had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Alles Gute!!
Fantastic cottage with beautiful surroundings!
Barn cottage is in a great location for day trips to the likes of Padstow & Port Isaac and more. The cottage has picturesque surroundings and it's very peaceful sitting in the beautiful garden watching the world pass by. Owners Mark & Wendy were very welcoming and had thought of everything needed for the cottage to make it as relaxing as possible. The cottage was pristine and myself and my partner thoroughly enjoyed it (along with our 2 Daxies) and we'd love to return in the future!!!
Excellent, relaxing place to stay. Owners very helpful and welcoming ( wine, milk, biscuits and flowers ) but leave you alone to enjoy the peace and tranquility. Beautiful walled garden with lovely views. Great position for both coasts. Second holiday there and would happily go again.
Our Wonderful Honeymoon
If you want peace and tranquillity, but easy access to all of Cornwall, then Barn Cottage is a perfect choice. Considering it's only a one bedroom property there is more than enough room for 2 people. Lot's of though has gone into making this place a truly special home from home. Mark and Wendy are the perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble, if you want any advice on places to go, just ask. If you just want to stay put and relax then the pretty little garden is the perfect place to do so. We are so glad we found this little gem and we shall definitely make a return visit. Thank you Mark and Wendy.
Barn cottage is an amazingly comfortable and peaceful holiday let. It has everything you could possibly want and quite simply the prettiest, totally enclosed garden of any I’ve seen. All furnishings are of excellent quality and very comfortable, plenty of space too! Highly recommended and very dog friendly!
A beautiful cottage for a restful stay
Barn Cottage has everything you can want from a holiday cottage - it's well equipped, comfortable and well situated.
The rooms are large and spacious, and the facilities excellent. The kitchen is very well equipped and has all the bits and pieces you'd need to undertake holiday cooking. The dishwasher is a welcome feature! The bedroom is massive and the bed comfortable, and the bathroom is also large and very well equipped. It really is a fantastically proportioned and very pleasant cottage.
The owners (Mark and Wendy) were welcoming, friendly, helpful and lovely to chat to. They were very kind and made us feel totally welcome.
Our favourite feature by far were the large doors in the lounge/kitchen open plan area, that opened out onto a beautiful courtyard garden. It's clear that Mark and Wendy are keen and talented gardeners and it's a pleasant place to while away the time reading.
The cottage is about a 5-10 minute drive from Bodmin, meaning that despite being very rural and peaceful, shops are within easy reach, the National Trust's Lanhydrock is very closeby and you're well placed to travel around Cornwall with ease - the location is excellent.
All in all, we had a very relaxed, very peaceful, and very beautiful stay in Barn Cottage. Thank you, Mark and Wendy!
Bodmin was the former county town of Cornwall for many years and the only Cornish town to be recorded in the Domesday Book, which was lodged in the town's prison during the First World War. The county prison is now a museum and open to the public. It was the first prison in the country to have separate cells. The oldest part of the town is made up of mainly granite buildings clustered around the Bodmin Beacon. The Beacon is a 144 feet tall obelisk in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh Gilbert. The area around the Beacon which has woodland and traditional hay meadow was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1994.
Nearby Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall's Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall's highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall's stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.
