“A perfect relaxing country cottage within a short car ride of all amenities”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in June 2014

We had a lovely laid back trip to Helscott Barn. The cottage was charming with lovely décor and a super kitchen. The bench outside the cottage is a perfect sun trap and a great spot to catch your breath after a busy day touring. We managed to fit a lot in our our trip with surfing on the local beach in Bude, a trip to Padstow and the Eden Project (all easily do able as a day trip). Our host was very helpful and a lovely lady to chat to. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful part of the world.

“A great base for us”
Reviewed 10 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent five days at Oak Barn - using it as a base while walking the Coast Path.

It was great to come back to a cottage with everything we needed to make it an easy stay. John was extremely helpful; the location was convenient; it was well equipped and was very clean and tidy.

Reviewed 8 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We have just spent a week at Oak Barn. We had a great time, the Barn had all the facilities you could want. Very cosy lounge, bedrooms ideal for our stay.

Yvonne and John were very welcoming and friendly, my little boy was made really welcome. Would definately go again.

Thank you for a lovely holiday.

“Fantastic barn that catered for all our needs, would definitely return”
Reviewed 30 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We travelled as a family of 4, with a 5 year old & 4 month old, & have to say the owners Yvonne & John were so accommodating & friendly, offering useful tips on local beaches & restaurants that enabled us to have a fab family holiday.
The barn itself is well furnished with plenty of space & is very very cosy, with lovely plush sofas to rest on after the kids go to sleep!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & will definitely return.
