Stay in this glorious lakeside property set within 7 acres of vibrant scenery, fantastically located on the Cornwall and Devon border. The traditional stone cottage offers extremely handsome interiors and views that you’ll adore. Offering you a fantastic base for making memories together, the space sleeps up to six guests and offers ample room both inside and out for relaxing days and nights. Whether you’re admiring starry skies from your private hot tub or enjoying sumptuous meals indoors, you’re certain to have an unforgettable time right here.

Exposed brickwork, original beamed ceilings and sturdy oak fixtures and fittings add to the natural charm that this property exudes. A sociable space awaits you in the open-plan living area on the ground floor. Made up of a kitchen, dining area and lounge, this cosy area is the place to be through those cold winter evenings. Throw logs on the wood burner, switch on the Smart TV and spend some quality time together. In times of sunshine, you’ll likely prefer sitting outside in the garden, making full use of the hot tub or taking drinks on the rattan furniture. Whatever an evening may bring, you’ll always find three cosy bedrooms upstairs, waiting to welcome you for a restful night's sleep.

The cottage benefits from an excellent position, not far from Devon’s border and with plenty to do all around you. Younger visitors will adore a trip to the Trethorne Leisure Park (5.5 miles) with rides and farmyard animals, whilst visitors of all ages will likely jump at the chance to spend time on the beach. With plenty of options just a car journey away, you can reach beaches on Cornwall’s north coast in 15 miles and the south coast in 24 miles.

A great place to stay. Lovely outlook. The beds are very comfortable and the lounge/ dining kitchen it well set up. The scones, milk etc on arrival is a great welcoming gift. The hosts are delightful and keep the place clean and tidy. We love the hot tub too.

We had a wonderful holiday at Otter Barn. Really close to Launceston and many shops, including the garden centre. Not far from the north coast and the Eden project. Darren has been so helpful and always present if needed. The paddock for the dog has been really appreciated. We would return for sure.

Stayed in otter barn for a week and it was just perfect. If your looking for somewhere with things to do in walking distance this isn't the place.

Beautiful barn accommodation in a quiet location where the roads are virtually empty compared to the busy seaside resorts of Cornwall. Only 30 minutes by car to Bude and the beaches, where we did Coasteering, paddleboarding and swam in the (very clean) sea. Our furthest excursion was to the Lost Gardens, an hour away and well worth the drive. LovelRead morey walking at Lydford Gorge National Trust to see the fantastic waterfall.

Just got home from a 5 night stay for my husbands 30th birthday. Can not complain about anything! Everything was perfect. From the little detail of scones & milk to the views. The owners are lovely and really do go the extra mile to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Would 100% recommend this place and hope to return.

A roomy and comfortable barn conversion. Kitchen was suitable equipped and we liked the scones, jam, cream and milk to greet us on our arrival. Ample areas to walk the dogs, though were a bit muddy as had been wet for some time. On the point of dogs, we were supplied with two dog beds, towels, bowls and treats. The hot tub was fine though could havRead moree been a bit warmer. Also, barns with hot tubs had robes supplied. Was able to make good use of the Pod Point EV charging stations. An enjoyable stay.
