Lypmscott barn is a great place for a large group to enjoy a break away!

Despite the Great British weather, we had a fabulous week.

Perfect venue to celebrate my 60th birthday with family. We were greeted by Caroline as arranged who made us feel very welcome. The house exceeded my expectations even though it looks amazing in the pictures. The ground floor bedroom with a wet room was perfect for my elderly parents, and very soundproof from the living area. Everywhere was spotlesRead moresly clean and comfortably warm (November). The hot tub was a nice addition. We all had a fabulous stay and would highly recommend this property. Hide

Very rural and peaceful (other than the cows at milking time). Easy access to surfing beaches, but sadly Tamar Lakes were closed during our visit. We were surprised that there was no cleaning in the middle of our two week stay.

Lympscott Barn was everything we could have dreamed of. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The barn was well equipped for the 13 members of our family who were with us - ranging from 81 down to 12. We loved Sandymouth Beach 20 minutes drive away and enjoyed walking on the coast path. The games room, lawn area for badminton cricket etcRead more and the hot tub were all perfect. I highly recommend this property. Hide
