John and Alison Werren welcome guests to these luxury barn conversions full of rustic charm in a beautiful river valley setting. The spacious and well-equipped accommodation offers a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of country walks beside the river and through the fields. There is also a lot of wildlife to see including kingfishers, sandmartins, buzzards and herons, maybe an otter or skylark. You can also watch the wildlife on and around the river from the large hide overlooking the River Ottery on the Devon and Cornwall boundary. There are webcams set up to capture the wildlife around the farm which can be viewed on the TV in your cottage, you may be lucky enough to watch swallows eggs hatching in the nest or bats leaving an old barn. A wonderful centre for visiting Cornwall and Devon. Many all year round attractions are within easy travelling distance, including The Eden Project (purchase discounted fast track tickets available from farmhouse), Plymouth Aquarium, Morwellham Quay and King Arthur's Castle at Tintagel.

A great place to relax and enjoy the country side, which was also very near to other great places to visit. We have three children from 6 to 18 and they all found the Cottage and the working farm very interesting. Great holiday & thank you :-)

Really spacious accommodation with everything needed. We enjoyed our time there and the owners were so friendly and helpful. Once you find your way on the minor roads, journeys to the coast do not take as long.

We had a wonderful time at Waterloo courtyard our grandchildren especially loved the pool. Walks along the river were really enjoyable and Alison and John were very helpful.

Reviewed by Margaret, 25th June 2016

Our family ranged from Great Granny who is 93 to babies of 3 and 1 years and the cottage was suitable for all of us. The downstairs bedroom was ideally equipped for the less mobile and the sturdy stairgates made it safe for the children. Unfortunately our holiday was spoiled by bad weather and we were unable to use the pool and the playground only Read morerarely. Hide
