Original beams and high vaulted ceilings lend character to this impeccably converted barn.

Returned to this property after a 6 year gap and just as good as before. Lovely to be on a working farm watching the animals in the field (no smells). Remote enough to only hear birds and sheep but only 5 mins from the A30 (which you can't see or hear). High spec accommodation with everything you need and 3 separate bathrooms a bonus. A great base Read moreto explore the North coast within 45 min drive, and same down to St Austell in South. Launceston is worth a day of mooching about with lovely cafes. Hide
