Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
Lambs Barton Cottage was a unique property in an ideal location and a lovely place for my partner and I to spend a week in Cornwall. We would highly recommend this cottage.
Had a great week at lambs barton cottge
Had a lovely week at lambs barton cottage ..really loved the solitude and quiet ..The cottage was very comfortable and beautifully presented ..we would definitely recommend it and certainly return again
Lovely cottage recommended by our son. Wonderful to arrive to flowers outside in various pots. House comfortable and outdoor seating areas well thought out.
This was our 3rd time in this wonderful cottage, first time in the winter. It is really cozy and as lovely as in the summer when the garden and outdoor space is a bonus. The location is wonderful and we really enjoy the local pub which is very welcoming and has lovely views. We also really like the seclusion, not overlooked at all and no extraneous noise.
The really throughtful owners left us a bottle of champagne as it was our wedding anniversary - a typically warm touch.
I could not recommend this cottage more highly.
great location and a beautiful place to relax and hide away
lambs barton cottage is beautiful and is a lovely space full of light. it is comfortable, well equipped and we love everything about it, especially the woodburner. this was our second visit and we will definitely be back!
Great location, needs a deep clean and more comfortable furniture
The ladder in the bedroom needs fixing to the bed, it is unsafe and my children nearly fell backwards a number of times when getting in or out of the bed, despite us highlighting the danger. The property needs a deep clean, it was full of old cobwebs, spiders, flies and woodlice (woodlice dropped from the beam onto the food preparation area in the kitchen daily). The sofa and chair where dirty, tired, uncomfortable and need replacing. The beds were uncomfortable as well. I am highlighting these areas as they are easily rectified but need addressing. Despite the above we thoroughly enjoyed our stay as the property is in an excellent location and an added bonus for us were the various parts of the garden which the children loved exploring and playing in. One further point to note is the lane which gives access to the property which is overgrown and has scratched our car on both sides.
I am glad our guests enjoyed Lambs Barton Cottage and it's location, it is very special. I would like to clarify a few points on the comments they have made. Firstly the ladder, there are two bolts at the point where the ladder meets the bed with the relevant fixing on the ladder, by securing these the ladder cannot be moved. These have been in place since the time of building the bed a few years ago. The cottage had a full deep clean last month with a full clean every Friday change over, due to our countryside location we do have our fair share of spiders and insects, we remove the cobwebs but the spiders are pretty speedy at replacing them. I will see where the woodlice have come from but in a barn we do expect a few. The chair had a brand new cover made for it a few months ago, last month it was in tip top condition so I will have to review what has happened in the meantime. We recently found some marks and wear and tear on the sofa and this will be addressed next month. Beds are a difficult one as we prefer a firm mattress and have many positive comments on how comfortable the beds are, the mattresses are top quality and hand made. I will of course look into this and what has happened over the last month. As regards the lane, this is a public highway and not owned by us but we are part of a community group who pay to have our hedges cut back four times a year, the current cut will be at the end of this month when all community members will also have their hedges cut, there are many small lanes in the Parish. The lane from the top of the hill down to our entrance is owned by the farmer above us, he does not want his hedges cut until end of season to preserve the wildlife and we cannot interfere with his land.
The house is located about half a mile from the beach at Crackington Haven, which is included in the best surfing beaches in England and was recommended by the Marine Conservation Society in its Good Beach Guide. The beach is surrounded by majestic cliffs providing a spectacular backdrop and it is one of Cornwall's most dramatic locations. At high tide, the beach is a mass of quartz-veined pebbles and large boulders but at low tide, it reveals an expanse of sand and many rock pools. Only the road separates the sea from a couple of beach shops, two superb beach cafes and a public house with a restaurant and fantastic terrace.
As you travel down the coastline, you can visit quaint coastal villages such as Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac, the latter offering a range of fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy the freshest and most delicious fish.
Fifteen minutes up the coast is Bude, a popular tourist destination for both its surfing and there is a fantastic family beach in nearby Widemouth Bay. The watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards allows for some of the best surfing in the world alongside kite-surfing, swimming and a whole host of water-based activities. Bude today is a lovely sea-side town, the main shopping streets and inter-connecting alleyways play host to a wide range of locally owned shops, restaurants and pubs. There are boutiques, shoes, arts & crafts, jewellery, hand-made gifts and souvenirs.
Six miles inland is Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cornwall at its wildest and rich in ancient history, Bodmin Moor stretches for 30 miles through the heart of the County of Cornwall and offers spectacular walking and horse riding.
With easy access to the both the A30 and the Atlantic Highway you can quickly travel up and down the South-West to enjoy some of the larger tourist attractions that Devon and Cornwall have to offer.
