We've had a lovely holiday.
The cottage is comfortable and a great base to explore the area. The goodies were very much appreciated. The boys enjoyed the playroom, Thank you!

Lovely and accommodating hosts! They had a welcome basket of all sorts of local goodies waiting for us when we arrived and were very helpful with tips for local adventures. They also have all the information laid out in well-organized binders, including walks, pub/restaurant recommendations, it was a lovely stay and y'all were so very accommodating, highly recommend.

It's felt like a flying visit to Cornwall. Despite the rain we've packed in so much, that coming back to the comforts of the barn has been very welcome at the end of the day.
Ali, thank you for checking in on us and making sure we had everything we needed. The barn is truly a home from home! I pledge to come back and stay a little longer next time.
P.s Alex (aged 9) loved the table tennis the most!

We have enjoyed a very relaxing and peaceful weekend in this beautiful barn. The children loved the games room especially. We really appreciated all the extras of supplying a cot, stairgate, highchair and delicious welcome hamper! Thank you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days away in the peaceful surroundings of your beautiful barn. Wonderful walks in the countryside and part of the South West Coast path. Plus a visit to the Garden House which again was beautiful. Sorry we didn't meet you as you were away for your anniversary but thank you Hannah for a very warm welcome. Thank you also for the lovely hamper of goodies. We hope to be back again.

A lovely place to stay and delightful hosts. We've had a very relaxing break, enjoying the local area. Can thoroughly recommend the Royal Inn at Horsebridge. On the last evening, the clouds cleared to reveal the stunning night sky. Marvellous.

A lovely place to spend Easter. Thank you for your welcoming goodies and for such a thoughtfully converted barn to stay in. Table tennis was great. I enjoyed having my first cups of tea of the day sat by the open french windows listening to the birds. Must mention the super shop in the local village - Lots of goods and very lovely staff/owners. Thanks again.

We have had a short but sweet two night stay here. Would be very comfortable if we could have stayed longer. Hannah was very helpful sorting out the hot water for us. We wish yo well for your future.

We have had the most wonderful stay at Higher Pempwell Barn, made even better by the fabulous hosts. The property is exactly as you would expect from Rural Retreats - furnished and equipped to a very high standard, and set in an idyllic position. Whilst there, we visited Tintagel and Pendennis Castles, the Eden Project, Trebarwith Strand and Perranporth beaches. The village shop is well stocked and the staff cannot do enough to help you. Our 4 year old loved helping out with the chickens and the highlights of our holiday (read our 4 year old's into this) included going to visit Holly the horse down the lane, seeing the chickens walk past the house and saying hello to the cows in the field opposite. We had dinner in the Springer Spaniel and Royal Inn pubs, both of which were superb and in close proximity to this property. If you are going to go to either of these places later on in the week, make sure you book to avoid disappointment. Please note that unless you have an Orange mobile, you will not get a telephone signal, but this is easily rectified by walking half a mile up the hill!!!

We have had a super stay in Pempwell. Whilst here we have enjoyed visiting Cothele Estate and Mill - Art Gallery great. Exploring the Neolithic Hurlers and cheeswring on Bodmin. The Castle at Launceston, Kit Hills Industrial Heritage, and walking in the bluebell woods at Buckland Abbey. The local population of chickens, Peacocks and Peahens kept us entertained. We also enjoyed visiting the handmade glass gallery by Jo Downs in Launceston M&Z Pinner

We had a lovely relaxing time at Higher Pempwell. Great place to stay. We enjoyed the beach at Whitsands Bay (south coast) it was beautiful - sand and rockpools. The Camel trail cycle path is worth doing - we did the Wadebridge to Padstow section. Eden Project great - overall a great holiday and of course we loved the Chickens and the fresh eggs! JJE&O London

Thank you for such a rural holiday retreat. It has been perfect - can't fault it at all. We have done so much exploring each day and loved every moment! Even opening up and collecting the eggs!! They taste lovely. We hope to come back when we can. Thanks to Ellen for everything - our time together has been the icing on the cake - thank you from the bottom of our hearts. G R & O, Oxfordshire

We're in total agreement with the comments from our friends from 'over the pond' well up to the standard we have come to expect from Rural Retreats. It was a most comfortable and enjoyable few days. The Andrews

Rural Retreats give me a gurantee that my holiday accommodation will be excellent.. Often the pictures do not do them justice. Always an enjoyable holiday. MA, Uxbridge, 07.08.2010

We have been using Rural Retreats for 25 years plus and Ali and his family have made this the best stay ever. The property and location is excellent and the attention to detail really makes the ideal stay. Games room is an added bonus we have never laughed so much, ping pong and wine a great combination. To push the boat out and for a special treat try the Endsleigh we had a fantastic lunch on the terrace with unspoilt and outstanding views. Hope to be back again soon. Trevor & Peggy, September 2008
