We loved staying here! Quiet, peaceful, yet within easy reach of the coast. We loved watching meteors and stars, and hearing owls at night, and meals on the patio during the day. Comfy bed too!

Beautiful location. Excellent if you enjoy peace and quiet. Although a few miles to the coast, it is very central to the wonderful towns and villages of North Cornwall. We were very comfortable in the Old Cow Barn and would definitely recommend staying. The St Kitts soaps and lotions were a lovely touch, which lead to a visit to the Herbery nearby Read moreto purchase some for home. Overall a wonderful stay. Hide

This property is simply lovely. It is very well appointed and a true gem, perfect for couples wanting to get away from it all. Set in a very small hamlet, a short walk away from some beautiful countryside, it is a perfect base for exploring all areas of Cornwall. It had all modern amenities, but with the quaintness of a cottage feel, which suited uRead mores really well. Rachel and Matt were very accommodating, super friendly, available should they be needed, but not in the least bit interfering. Hide
