Booked a cottage for a weekend away with some friends. Originally 12 of us but numbers dwindled down to 7. Contacted Frances and Neville, they were only too happy to help. Communications were excellent, local knowledge is very good.
Following sat nav and using directions provided by Frances and Neville, found the cottages easily.
Cottages we stayed in, (Hawthorn and Beech,) were all clean, tidy, comfortable and very well presented. Plenty of utensils, crockery and pans. Local supermarket does deliver but isn't very far away so we got our own.
Tv's and dvd's are provided in the main living rooms along with a few games.
Grounds are beautiful and very well kept. Plenty of shade if you need it but also plenty of open areas for sun chasers. Lots of space, lots of nooks and corners to give you some peace if you need it.
Phone signal varies with provider. Wifi is available but is open so if lots of you are using, clogs the bandwidth.
Plenty of bbq's, we used the kitchens every night but ate outdoors. Few bug issues but that is to be expected in sunny June when you eat outdoors.
The outdoor hot tub is a great way to end the day. Especially with the view of the rolling hills. No big roads or towns nearby so incredibly quiet in the evenings.
Depending on your plans when visiting Cornwall, you may be better off choosing a different location situated closer to the places you want to visit. But if you don't mind driving a bit further, (fuel is a bit cheaper if you head off the main roads,) you get to take in Cornwalls amazing scenery en route but also get to stay in one of the most peaceful and sceneic places i have had the good fortune to visit.
Also not far from Plymouth and Tavistock if you fancy trips to either.
There were family's away for a break staying in a different cottage on the same site. Because of the amount of space, we could all have the break we wanted without disturbing each other.
I intend to go back again with my family and recommend anyone looking to stay here to book. None of our party were disappointed in any way.
Lovely peaceful place to stay. The lodge was perfect for us. Use of the hot tub made it even more relaxing. Snowy was delightful, he loved his carrots in the morning. Dad was impressed with the size of the fish in the pond. Definitely worth a visit.
I stayed in this cottage when we rented the whole of the Long Barns cottages in June. Really enjoyed myself and it was great that we weren't all in one cottage all the time. The pool & gym were brilliant and the grounds really nice. Fishing was excellent. Caught loads with top weight around 10lbs.
