“I was greeted by a loaf of warm home-baked bread by my host!!!”

person found this review helpful

The correspondence was fairly easy going and prompt from the word go. Barry, our host text us whilst we were on the motorway to check if the journey was pleasant.
When we arrived he had a loaf of home baked bread ready for us. It was the nicest gesture. We have had elaborate hampers waiting for us at some apartments but the gesture of a home baked bread beats them all.
The barn is modern with all amenities you can expect. We were on summer break with our teenagers and they were happy to have high speed broadband / wifi available.
There is a local Coop in Camelford and we usually had breakfast at the Barn and took packed lunches out for the day trips.
I would recommend the Old Jacksons Barn to friends and family. I would definitely stay here again.

“Perfect family home from home”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

A wonderful week, enjoyed by all the family. The barn is gorgeous, very clean and has a cosy yet spacious feel through out. Baz & Paolo were extremely friendly hosts and greeted us with freshly baked bread. A great location, within easy reach of lots of local Cornish towns and harbours. We'll definitely recommend the barn to family & friends and we'd love to re-visit soon.

“what a lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 29 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

great place on the edge of unpretentious Camelford to the north of Bodmin Moor with good walks on the moor just a stone's throw away. Easy to drive a short distance to the coast (Tintagel, Port Issac etc). Was great to find such a place to stay with a friend and 2 small dogs, with my partner being able to come and stay for some of the time within the week. Good farm shop near by, quirky couple of pubs in the town all in all a perfect place for a quiet visit to Cornwall while being near enough to the tourist attractions. Will definitely recommend and return.

“A really good cottage.”
Reviewed 24 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We expected to have a really good holiday through talking to Baz in booking the Barn. We arrived Saturday 10/08/13, We had a welcoming pack waiting for us. The Barn itself is well laid out and spotless, we could not complain about anything. Both Baz and Paola have worked very hard in rebuilding this Barn, and oh what a good job they've done. I would recommend this Barn to anyone who wants a quiet holiday, and would also recommend Paola's cooking, we had Lasagne and Ciabatta (Bellissimo). We have a country cottage holiday every year, but this year we have been spoilt. You can be sure that we will soon be back again.

“Perfect people, perfect location, perfect accomodation.”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent a week at Old Jacksons Barn, the kids (11 & 15) loved it, pure luxury after camping for the last few years, Wi-Fi to, so I-pods and x-box were available!!!
The area was fantastic, with great places like Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and even Plymouth not too far away.
Baz and Paulo were fantastic hosts, and have made a fantastic barn conversion, we wish them all the best.

“a home from home with amazing views!!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Amazing welcome received from the owners sincere and so helpful, old Jackson’s barn has everything that we could have wished for a week away, it really does feel like a home from home, great location, easy to get to any of the fantastic north Cornwall coast. The kids had a great time and didn’t stop smiling from the moment they woke to the moment their head hit the pillows.
The barn is well thought out and well furnished (none of the usual holiday rental furniture) the kitchen has all the things that you could need and the beds are so comfortable. If there’s one thing that I could change is the amount of time that we booked for 1 week just wasn’t enough!!! Can’t wait to rebook for next year.

“Wonderful 10 days in Cornwall”
Reviewed 3 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We have just returned from 10 days in Cornwall. We normally visit St Ives but decided on a change this year. We found Old Jacksons Barn in Camelford on the internet and decided it suited our needs, they also accepted dogs ( just because you have a pet it does not mean you wish to stop in substandard accomodation with mismatched furniture).

On our arrival we were met by Baz and Paola the owners who were very nice. They showed us round the accommodation which was excellent, they have spend the last few years converting the barn themselves and have made a wonderful job, it was a real home from home with everything you could need to have a really enjoyable holiday and the must have wifi for those that can not be parted from the internet. Paola is from Italy and left us with a Cornish hamper of local produce and some home made chocolates ( these did not last very long). It you don't want to cook you can order home cooked Italian meals that Paola prepares herself. I would suggest you order and have something waiting for you on arrival.

Camelford is a small village with plenty of local amenities. There are two pubs if you wish to venture, Fish & Chip shop which is excellent. It is also within easy distance to many coastal towns and villages. We visited all of these during our stay - the walk from Trebarwith Strand to Tintagel was well worth it once you get up the first hill.

We would like to wish Baz and Paola huge success in their venture,Old Jacksons Barn is a little gem and if you are thinking of visiting Cornwall I would highly recommend this as the place to stay.
