        Fantastic Property

        We are just returning from a fantastic 3 day 2 night break away in North Cornwall. We stayed in The Milking Parlour, 2 bedrooms 1 bathroom. These newly converted barns are very well equipped and the barn has been tastefully renovated, new in June 2017. They have two further barns done also to a lovely specification with different layout. Bridget the owner was kind enough to let us view the other properties. We were left fresh scones, clotted cream, jam and milk on arrival. Very clean and tidy. Close by drive to Camelford. We visited Port Issac, Polzeath, Rock, Padstow and the local beach of Trebarwith Strand. We ate in The Masons Arms one night on the owners recommendation and we were not disappointed. I would not hesitate to book this accommodation again and would throughly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing so. We have a dog and they have a huge field by the accommodation which was fantastic for her in the mornings to stretch her legs. Well done Bridget and Tom for all your hard work. Kind Regards, Michael, Nina & Family plus Lottie the dog ( Worcester )

          Perfect for a break away in Cornwall!!

          We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a perfect base for exploring the north coast of Cornwall! Very welcoming and felt like a home from home and a great place to bring a dog on holiday. Would definitely recommend staying here and we will certainly stay again!!

              Wonderful and tranquil setting

              Bridget and Tom have done a brilliant job on the Milking Parlour and it is a fabulous and cosy retreat, ideal for an escape from a busy day to day life. A real home from home. The cottage is fabulous throughout and finsished to a tremendous standard, well equipped and whilst modern still visibly complemented by the features of the original barn. Lovely cream tea on arrival too was a real bonus. Bridget also kindly showed us round Piglets which will be brilliant for a larger family or group looking to relax and catch up. Great job both, a place we are already looking to revisit later this year and one of the very best and most comfortable cottages we have stayed in anywhere. Loved it!!!!!!!!!
