The Granary is an open-plan cosy cottage with a log burner, on the edge of the farmyard on our peaceful, working farm, along with The Stables holiday cottage, and the main farmhouse. We welcome you with a traditional Devonshire cream tea in the cottage - essential when visiting Devon!
“What a lovely cottage! It’s cosy, clean, spacious, and has spectacular views of the hilly fields, dotted with lambs, sheep and cows. It is so tranquil because it is hidden away in the hills. It has its own enclosed wooden table and bench for you to enjoy meals outdoor.. The closest neighbour is more than a mile away. Communication with Sue is fantastic from the time I found her place on AirBnB till we left. She also is a great hostess. She ensures you have everything you need to be comfortable. We were delayed a day as our car broke down, and she kindly offered to extend our stay a day to make up for it! The place is well situated for us to explore Devon & Cornwall. We went to St Michael Mount, St Ives, The Hidden Valley, Port Lethen, Truro... Unfortunately Tintagel castle was close for repair. So all and all, five stars! We will stay at the Granary Cottage again if we want to go to Cornwall again.”
My Maisonette is a listed building and on 2 levels. It's a little quirky and in the middle of town with minutes walk to everything you could need - banks, library, pubs, bakeries, butchers, coffee shops, cafes, takeaways, shops. There is a castle, free museum and surrounded by countryside. Launceston is just off the A30. DIY breakfast included. I also have a double room listed in this property which may be booked during your stay, therefore you could be sharing the facilities with other guests.
“Victoria’s place is fantastic with lots of character. It was a relaxing place to stay for a work trip. Launceston is a quaint and safe place and it would be great for a leisure trip too if you want to be in the country. Plymouth is about one hours bus journey away via the 12 bus. Check in was made easy with the directions provided via Airbnb messaging beforehand and she waited for me when the train was delayed which I really appreciated. Victoria is a pleasant and calm character whose hospitality put me right at ease. The single room was pretty and just the right size for one person. Noise filtering from outside was moderate. I didn’t have to use earplugs. The breakfast was great, cereals were in airtight containers with the cardboard cutout of names on them so you knew what you were eating, could look up ingredients and they didn’t go soggy. There was bread, porridge, teas and cafetiere provided for coffee. She told me I could use the kitchen to cook if I wanted. I didn’t use this, but it was nice to know. Victoria had offered to get dairy free milk which was thoughtful. I was okay buying this. There’s a Co-op, a large Tesco and a few artisan coffee shops closeby within a 14 minute walking distance at most. Whilst I was there for 4 nights the Wifi cut out just once, I was shown how to reconnect this and it was easy to fix. The TV had been unavailable during my stay, this didn’t bother me as there are plenty of interesting and quirky books to read and Wifi. There’s only a bath here with no shower. I was expecting this from the description. It was relaxing to soak in it at night after work. After a 4 night stay, I left Victoria’s feeling recharged and ready for the next destination.”
My country cottage is situated in the beautiful Tamar valley between Dartmoor/Bodmin moor. This is my second bedroom . The room has its own private bathroom. You have free access to the sitting room, dining room, and garden. Friendly local pub serving good food. Scenic walks. 3 miles Callington 15 miles Plymouth. Drive to beautiful beaches within fourty minutes. Must be dog lover as I live here full time with my two Tibetan terriers. Dogs welcome.
“A very memorable evening at Rosemary's well appointed cottage; spent sitting around the open fire chatting; with three happy dogs, two hers and one ours. Rosemary is a remarkable host and a captivating conversationalist who made us all three - including our wolf hound - feel very welcome. We enjoyed talking to her and loved meeting her cute Tibetan Terriers. The bedroom was cosy and the bed most comfortable to sleep in. Lots of lovely pictures around the house. For dinner we walked with the hound to the local pub The Carpenters Arms which turned out to be a bit of a dog heaven! Very tasty seafood. Overall, a fantastic stay. Thank you, Rosemary!”
