“The barn was amazing....!”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The barn was packed with everything you could wish for and more. We travelled with our two young children, one disabled and there was something for both of them to do from the games cupboards or from the book shelf. We felt very safe there with him. The barn was kitted out with all you could need facilities-wise and was finished to a very high standard. Nothing scrimped on here. The shower in the en-suite was fantastic! The scones on arrival were a welcome site and just heavenly! (Thanks Maureen!) Bob the dog was a regular visitor to us and waited for us to return to play Frisbee. There's lots to do at the barn and around the area. There's a large visitors book with tons of ideas for all groups. We'll be going back again to the barn in the future for sure!

“Perfect x”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a beautiful place to stay! Ideal for young children with a gorgeous, safe garden, well equipped toy cupboards & DVDs, baby clobber etc.
I have never stayed anywhere so immaculately presented and well equipped, and David & Bridget such delightful & helpful hosts. They even went out & bought us a summer duvet when we enquired if they had one!
Amazing location, easy to get to north & south cornwall coasts. Just a perfect place for a family to stay xx

We enjoyed our stay at Gospenheale Barn in every way - such a beautiful and perfect home to stay and a real friendly welcome. We were complete happy and glad to stay there for a week. And there is a lot to see - on the one side the beautiful cornish coast and the dartmoor on the other side.

“Outstanding barn conversion with unmatched attention to detail”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have now stayed at Gospenheale Barn three times, to enjoy the Cornish coastal scenery. Gospenheale is a delightful location, close to the main 'A-roads' for easy access both north and south, but quiet and rural. David and Bridget are very friendly, attentive and chatty, providing some very welcoming home-made scones and clotted cream after our long drive across Europe. The barn conversion is remarkable. The downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms with underfloor heating are immaculate and very comfortable. The upstairs kitchen/lounge is clean, light and airy, with every convenience one could imagine. Their efforts to demonstrate environmentally friendly tourism are exemplary. Bob the dog is a highlight with our children, streaking across the road to welcome us back at the end of the day: it feels like coming home.
