Lisa M said “A real gem” September ’23
Had a lovely 5 night stay in a Yurt with my two dogs. A peaceful retreat to escape from busy lives. I had everything I needed on site. The dogs and I explored all over, particularly enjoying walking the coastal paths around Cawsand and Kingsand taking in Rame Head – Absolutely breath-taking. Hope to return with my family next time. What a gem of a place. Many thanks.
Kathryn P said “Very quiet and slept the longest in ages. Lovely apple juice and honey” September ’23
We were staying for a wedding in Landulph church so it was perfect. Husband has mobility problems so the walk in shower was ideal. Shame we couldn’t make it up the hill to see the Tamar River but fitter people will be able to. Very quiet and slept the longest in ages. Lovely apple juice and honey. Thank you Olivia and family.
Patrick I said “We REALLY enjoyed our stay at Lower Marsh Farm; it was perfect!” August ’23
The cottage was very well equipped and we especially enjoyed the hot tub and the games room. Olivia was great too, giving us plenty of great recommendations of what to do and where to shop. Would definitely recommend and hope to be back soon!
Zee H said “Would definitely recommend!” August ’23
Olivia was a lovely host and has a beautiful place. It is very peaceful and relaxing and clean. She was incredibly helpful with instructing us how to get the wood fired hot tub going and providing us with recommendations for activities in the local area. She went out of her way to let my toddler feed the animals and gifted her a peacock feather. Would definitely recommend!
Gary B said “we loved our stay” August ’23
Very welcoming upon our arrival, Barn was lovely and clean, and very dog friendly as we’d hoped, loads of little touches that are too numerous to mention, it was exactly as advertised and more, grounds of the farm itself were beautiful and perfect for young children, location was excellent for exploring Cornwall and really close for a visit to Plymouth, we loved our stay!
Marjan VH said “The stay was extraordinary. We enjoyed it so much and immediately felt at home on the farm.” August ’23
De boerderij ligt op een fantastische plek aan een aangrenzend natuurgebied. Op het erf lopen lopen prachtige pauwen en vriendelijke eendjes. De verbouwde schuur is mooi ingericht met een fijne bank en bedden. De douche was heerlijk en tevens een grootEr lagen allemaal folders klaar en landkaarten. Ook een ruime keuze aan videobanden. De basis inrichting van de keuken was prima. Wij misten wat grotere pannen zoals een hapjespan. Maar met wat creativiteit konden we de oven en fijne grote ovenschalen gebruiken dus dat was uiteindelijk geen probleem. Olivia had een welkomstpakket klaar gelegd dat goed van pas kwam voor ons ontbijt op de eerste ochtend. Na het wandelen gebruikten we de hottub. Het lukte om precies de juiste temperatuur te verkrijgen en het was heerlijk. We wandelden op het bijbehorende landgoed naar de rivier. Zo’n mooi gebied waar we de Schotse Hooglanders zagen, uilen en ander wild. Kortom het was een geweldig verblijf. We waren graag nog wat langer gebleven. Thanks!!!

Very clean and the garden overlooking the church was a nice surprise.
Karen H said “The barn was beautiful” August ’23
We had a wonderful time at Kingfisher Barn. Our hosts were friendly and welcoming and had even left us a few treats to enjoy! The barn was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed being able to use the hot tub under the stars whilst the kids were in bed!
Mary H said “We will definitely stay here again.” July ’23
My husband and our dog Goose stayed here just this last weekend and what a gem of a place to stay. For us it was idyllic. We were greeted by a nice lady called Chris who showed us in and we were immediately wowed by the interior of the converted barn. Its beautiful and you have everything you could possibly need great kitchen, great bathroom, lovely comfortable bed and they even provided Goose, our dog, with her own welcome pack of blanket, towel, dog bowls, poo bags. We were also treated to a bottle of the farm’s own made Apple Juice which was absolutely the best I ever had. Kitchen all kitted out with utensils and cutlery washing machine, dishwasher, cooker all good. Bathroom lovely and big as was the bedroom. The garden was just lovely and private with a wood fired hot tub which was fantastic. We would have used the barbecue had it not rained but you can’t choose the weather. Nice and quiet for an idyllic retreat from the pace of everyday life. Lovely woodland walk to the beach at Tamer estuary. Lovely views. We will definitely stay here again.
David M said “Our stay here was absolutely fantastic.” July ’23
Our stay here was absolutely fantastic. We were looking for a peaceful getaway with the dogs to get away from the normal 9-5 life and we get exactly that. The property itself was extremely spacious and clean with great facilities for a week away. The garden was secure for the dogs with lovely relaxing surroundings that provided some much needed downtime and good BBQ food! The hot tub was a huge bonus which Olivia gave clear instructions on how to operate. Our hosts communication was excellent from the day we booked right up to arrival. Highly recommended stay for people looking to enjoy the sites of Cornwall and a secluded getaway!
Katharine H said “It was a lovely place to stay , very clean and cosy with lots to do on the farm for children” July ’23
It was a lovely place to stay , very clean and cosy with lots to do on the farm for children. They had a nice little park there and a mud kitchen which my kids loved. We really enjoyed the walks around the farm, the tennis courts hot tub and games room was a great touch , the hosts were really friendly and helpful , highly recommend if you want to get away somewhere quiet and peaceful 🙂
Franziska M said “We enjoyed the time at lower marsh farm a lot!!!” July ’23
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt auf der Lower Marsh Farm sehr genossen. Durch ihre ruhige Lage lädt sie dazu ein vom Alltag abzuschalten. Olivia ist für alle Fragen erreichbar oder sonst einer der Mitarbeiter die auf der Farm arbeiten. Auch unserer 5 jährigen Tochter hat es super gefallen. Besonders die frei laufenden Pfauen, Enten und Hühner. Dass wir dann noch bei unserer Nachtwanderung die beiden Schleiereulen gesehen haben die auf dem Farmgelände ihr Nest haben war natürlich ein Highlight. Wir werden die Farm definitiv weiter empfehlen.
Translation: We enjoyed our stay at Lower Marsh Farm. Due to its quiet area, it invites you to turn off everyday life. Olivia is available for any questions or one of the employees working on the farm. Our 5 year old daughter also enjoyed it great. Especially the free-running peacocks, ducks and chickens. The fact that we then saw the two owls during our night hike, which have their nest on the farm grounds, was of course a highlight. We will definitely recommend the farm.
Joanne M said “See you next year xx” July ’23
Yet again an amazing time here. This place is heaven, quiet, private, clean, comfortable, friendly & beautiful animals in surrounding area to look at, Hot tub perfect, beautiful private garden, everything you need is there, I could live here its that nice. See you next year xx

We had an amazing time, the cottage and surrounding area was beautiful and the hot tub was just wonderful!
Lauren J said “We would definitely stay again.” July ’23
We had a lovely stay in Bulrush Barn. Olivia helped us set up the hot tub and showed us around when we arrived and also made recommendations on local walks. The area was beautiful and we enjoyed exploring the farm. It was a food location to use as a base and travel around the local area. We would definitely stay again.
Adrian B said “Perfect family reunion!” June ’23
Fantastic set up for a large family or group and had everything we needed. We were very lucky with the weather which was extremely warm! We occupied all the units at the farm and found that the Kingfisher Barn, which acted as a central meeting point for getting together for meals, was more than adequately equipped for the 15 of us in terms of crockery and cutlery etc. All the properties and the yurts were finished and furnished to an exceptionally high standard, whilst retaining their individuality. Both electric hot tubs were enjoyed by everyone, in the end we didn’t need to use the wood fired one, although everything needed was available there if we had wanted to. Plenty of comfortable communal spaces and quiet nooks! The farm has activities to suit everyone – including grassy play areas, tennis and basketball courts, lots of local woodland walks, a shingle beach perfect for paddle boarding and a well equipped indoor games room. The yurts are secluded and cosy offering views across the fields and out to the Tamar and the two bridges. They each share a separate covered kitchen and composting toilet, whilst shower facilities are provided back at the farm itself along with a washing machine.
We used the indoor ‘bar’ area in the later part of the evening when it cooled down considerably, this was a useful extra facility and could be well utilised if the weather wasn’t so good but you wanted to get everyone together. The owners were very helpful in the lead up to the booking and helped us settle in on the first afternoon. They were on hand if any help was needed, but were in no way obtrusive. Nice touch having fresh eggs, milk and their own apple juice on arrival. We also used the honesty shop to buy souvenir peacock feathers! Thanks Olivia and Ed for an unforgettable experience!
Caroline E said “Gorgeous little barn conversion with all the modern conveniences.” May ’23
Bright, pretty and set in the most lovely farm courtyard. Super to see the ducks, chicken and peacock wandering around ! Glorious walks in the ancient bluebell paths and fields. Super sunsets on the private beach at the estuary. Just a small note, there are at least 9 stone steps to the property and another 9 uneven steps to the top garden. Totally worth it to enjoy the welcoming wood fired hot tub and glorious views.
Patti S said “Well equipped with an EV charging point for staying guests.” May ’23
Loads to see and do on site and not very far away. Kingfisher Barn was well equipped and we loved the open plan arrangement upstairs. The hot tub was a hit and we enjoyed the downtime playing table tennis in the games room when the children had run out of steam.
The peacocks, hens and ducks around the courtyard were clearly used to visitors and we were treated to regular displays by one of the male peacocks. I managed one evening to video the peahens flying up to their roost. The birdsong at dawn and dusk was sublime.
Having access to an EV charger on site was ideal – it took away any concerns about finding available and working charging points whilst out and about. The information we needed for our stay was well presented and our hosts were very helpful.
Matthew D said “We had a fabulous stay.” May ’23
The location is stunning and everything about the accommodation was perfect!
Gary D said “Lower Marsh Farm is a beautiful place to stay and is exactly as described.” May ’23
A huge amount of space and areas to explore including tennis courts and even a little shingle beach down by the estuary. The children really enjoyed the games room and seeing the peacocks and ducks roam around. Olivia was really friendly and responsive, with clear instructions. The whole place has a really friendly and peaceful feeling about it. We had a great time, thank you and didn’t really want to leave!
Victoria B said “We just wish that we had stayed there for longer than a week. In the future, we would very much love to return with our dog.” May ’23
We absolutely loved the consistent level of tranquillity throughout our stay. The host, Olivia, was attentive whenever we required anything or had any queries. The property is very comfortable, cosy and has an air of warmth that leaves you feeling relaxed and refreshed when you leave. Being surrounded by ducks, peacocks and birdsong made our experience that much more special. The grounds are expansive and really taken care of by the owners. We had so much fun on the tennis court, which made for the perfect entertainment during our stay. We just wish that we had stayed there for longer than a week. In the future, we would very much love to return with our dog. It’s definitely a place that will leave guests inspired by all the work that the owners have done with the property and land. Thank you for having us.
Aaron W said “Highly recommended!” April ’23
A great place to stay for a relaxing getaway. Clean, cosy and comfortable in amazing surroundings. We loved the gardens, the woodland and river walks from the property and the wildlife all on your doorstep.
Sarah F said “We had the most amazing time at Lower Marsh Farm. The barn was so beautiful and so so peaceful we were able to fully relax and enjoy ourselves.” April ’23
Great location with lots of nice walks a short drive away and was able to come back and enjoy the hot tub in the evenings. The garden was lovely and our puppy enjoyed it very much. Olivia was super helpful and on hand with anything that was needed. Thank you for a lovely stay hope to definitely return one day!
Heather F said “Kingfisher Barn is such a beautiful place to stay“. April ’23
The surroundings are lovely and they’ve got so many resources from tennis court to play room and area for kids to walks, the kit to make it all less muddy and a lovely hot tub to end the day is brilliant. We loved our stay and would happily stay again.
Chris R said “The barn was exactly as described with everything we needed”. April ’23
My wife and I and our dog have just come back from a great five night stay at the Bulrush barn. The barn was exactly as described with everything we needed. The location of the farm at the end of a lane meant that it was very quiet with lots of walks to do with the dog. The wood fired hot tub was great and fairly easy to use. Olivia was a great host and responded quickly to any request. One evening we enjoyed one of the pre-made meals that you can order and cook yourselves and it was delicious. We certainly intend to go back in the future for a few days of relaxation.
Alison B said “Such a lovely few days at Lower Marsh Farm, in Bulrush Barn“. April ’23
Beautiful location and so peaceful and cosy. Olivia was really helpful and friendly and the Barn was spotless, warm and comfortable. Could have happily stayed longer!
Hannah E said “We had a lovely stay here and would recommend to anyone who needs a little getaway” March ’23
There is a pub near by but we found ourselves much happier in the garden with our supermarket beers and wine… and our own hot tub! Bed was comfortable, bathroom spacious and living room lovingly decorated with it’s own log burner with wood locally sourced from surrounding woodland! Best weekend ever. Thank you!
Vanessa G said “Our second trip” April ’23
First one for my birthday in October and we came back to see the daffodils and blossoms and to enjoy & relax over Easter. Walks to the river and through the orchards and woods, with our dogs who loved every minute.
Laurence R said “Lovely place in a lovely bit of the country.” Feb ’23

Welcoming, clean and made to feel at home. Facilities just fabulous and super impressed by the Yurts and other cottages and barns available … We will be returning very soon.
Dee H said “Lovely, comfortable place with everything you need for a relaxing family stay.” Oct ’22
We made the most of all of it and enjoyed being at the heart of a working farm (with hot tub!).
Taylor H said “Would recommend 100%.” Oct ’22
This place is absolutely fantastic! Olivia made us feel very welcome and gave us the option of having her show us how to use the hot tub etc. The apartment is very clean and has a very homely feeling. Great location to get out an explore.
Debbie P said “wow, what a beautiful place in the countryside away from it all” Sept ’22
We stayed at Lower Marsh Farm recently and wow, what a beautiful place in the countryside away from it all. Was lovely to explore Cornwall and come back, soak in the hot tub and take in the views with a nice glass of wine. Bulrush Barn was cosy and comfortable. Very dog friendly too. Olivia was great. Very knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. They also do food on request, given some notice. We booked an afternoon tea. Which was left for us on our return from a day out. Perfect. Thanks again Olivia and Ed for a lovely holiday.
Victoria G said “The barn is beautiful, very spacious and also cosy. We had a fantastic holiday and it was very much appreciated coming back to such a lovely environment.” Sept ’22
The Bulrush Barn is absolutely beautiful, its very spacious but also cosy. All of the facilities are excellent quality, its so easy to make yourself feel at home. The grounds are lovely and very peaceful, definitely worth exploring! The hot tub is a massive bonus, the smell of the burning wood while your having a soak is amazing. The perfect place to come to if you want some privacy and peace and quiet, its also a great base for going on day trips in the car to explore all the sights of Cornwall or Devon.
Rosemary D said“Delightful stay with a fab spa, lovely beds and lots of space” Sept ’22
Thanks for a delightful stay Olivia – the kiddos want to head straight back to collect feathers and mooch about ☺️
Elisabeth V said “We had such a lovely stay! Our yurt was so cosy, it was evidently very well insulated, and the features inside were beautifully handcrafted!” Sept ’22
I loved the farm atmosphere with the ducks and chickens wandering around, as well as some very inquisitive peacocks! I had never seen baby peacocks before, they’re very cute. The kitchenette was also a strong plus point with gas hob, and the fridge/freezer meant our food stayed fresh and we didn’t need to shop every day. The bathroom was really clean and comfortable, we happened to be the only people staying in the yurts (out of three) so had the kitchen and bathroom to ourselves, which was a bonus. The bathroom was a bit of a walk away, through the field and down some stairs (as was the entrance + the car) which was fine for us, but I think my parents would have struggled for example. Olivia was there to welcome us and was really friendly and helpful, and was happy to chat when we asked for some local recommendations. It felt like we had our own space and privacy too though 🙂 overall, we made some lovely memories here and we would love to stay again!

Beautiful place to stay, excellent hosts and dogs welcome. 50 mins drive to Eden Project. Highly recommended.
Nattipha S said “3 night minimoon staycation” Aug ’22
I stumbled across Lower Marsh Farm whilst searching for a minimoon staycation in Cornwall…and was intrigued by the location, the Yurt and the additional extras on offer, it had something for both of us so 3 night stay was booked.
We arrived to a lovely farm in the peaceful countryside, which was perfect for some us time plus Blu (dog) loved the surrounding walks. We opted to add on some additional extras (scented candle, breakfast items, afternoon tea, 1hr massage as well as borrowing the picnic basket / blanket and doggy basket).
Lots of things to do and explore within an hours drive (went fishing at Bake Lakes, then explored Saltash). Everyone was really friendly and we loved our stay! Thank you for hosting us and helping us have a relaxed start to married life x
Simran B said “The farm is a hidden gem and the perfect tranquil getaway.” Aug ’22
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kingfisher Barn. The farm is a hidden gem and the perfect tranquil getaway. There was plenty to keep all 7 members of the family occupied – from the hot tub, tennis court to walks around the grounds/down to Tamar River. Olivia was a very accommodating host and always quick to reply to any of our queries. Would highly recommend!
Charles S said “A wonderful home, tucked away on a working estate.” Aug ’22
We had a wonderful week exploring the coast between Portwrinkle and Lantivet Bay – but it was always great to return home to Kingfisher Barn. Spacious, comfortable and very well equipped, we recommend this stay very highly!
Andrew N said “Lovely stay in very comfortable and spacious apartment.” Aug ’22
Our stay was a busy, short one so didn’t get the chance to enjoy all the facilities but lovely quiet setting with plenty of walks nearby and easy access to Plymouth and the surrounding countryside.
Marie G said “Excellent place , lovely host . Beautiful appointed Yurts” Aug ’22
Yurt was lovely and clean . Lovely homely touches and beautiful location. Peaceful and lots to do and see on-site . With all the farmyard animas and peacocks around . The kitchen area is a great idea with fridge, microwave and hob. Made camping a little easier for sure. Loved exploring the site, kept finding new things like the orchard, hammock and woodland walk.
Deborah said “Thank you for a wonderful stay at Bulrush Barn.” Aug ’22
It was everything we could have wanted. Peaceful countryside (we even loved the ducks) lovely walks and sunny lounging in the garden and hot tub. We thoroughly enjoyed it and didn’t want to come home!
Jo said “If your after a beautiful, quaint place to stay this is it!” July ’22
This place is a very beautiful place for a quiet holiday/ base to explore Cornwall or just relax, plenty for children to explore. The animals are just the highlight of our stay. The ducks come to say hi every day at the gate. The cottage has everything you need, the garden is beautiful. there is a beach for exploring/walks, we just enjoyed relaxing and the hot tub, its the best stay I’ve had in a very long time. I was actually tearful when leaving. I totally love this place and would go back in a heartbeat.
Lucy said “What an absolute gem of a place!” July ’22
The barn itself is gorgeous and has every home comfort you could need including a very well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed with good pillows, lovely shower and bath. There was apple juice from the orchard and the most amazing eggs for us on our arrival. So good we bought more to bring home!
Aimee S said “Would definitely recommend to friends and stay again.” July ’22
Had a lovely relaxing stay at Orchard Cottage. Beautiful peaceful farm and scenery. Hot-tub was great and a highlight of the stay – one of the reasons we booked this accommodation.
Louise C said “If you looking for somewhere to be calm and get away from the everyday hustle and bustle of life this place is perfect. We have recommended to several people already we were that impressed..” July ’22
I booked this for a 30th birthday weekend for my husband. We wanted somewhere we could totally relax and be able to take out fur baby safely with us, before we get into the crazy world of moving house. This did just that, we were very calm and spent some lovely time on little walks within the area. The log burning hot tub was a great experience once we learnt how to start a fire lol. The garden was very secure and felt really safe to allow our dog to sniff around in freely. Every thing was very clean and tidy and felt very homely when arriving. We even had the pleasure of seeing some beautiful duckling that were not even 24 hours old.
Thabo N said “Very peaceful, lovely host, and great amenities.” July ’22
We had an amazing stay. We’d brought our infant and the place was super accessible. only that, the games room with different activities for families helped during the rainy day. Only downside was the roads, they were a little narrow and difficult to navigate. Even then, we definitely recommend the place.
Benjamin G said “Really enjoyed our stay, a lovely cozy cottage!” July ’22
We spent one whole day at the cottage due to the heat warning, so the board games came in handy! The welcome pack was great! Loved seeing the animals about the farm and loved that we had a little basket in the cottage full of things for our dog!
Liam E said “Location is secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet and it does feel like your a world away from anywhere” July ’22
We had a few days here which were all lovely. We stayed with our 3 kids (ages 12,6,4) who all had plenty to keep them occupied with the large grounds to play/walk, the games room, animals and tennis court, and who all really enjoyed the place. Olivia spent time with our kids teaching them about the animals she has, even letting them pick a couple of eggs out of the chicken coop which was a lovely touch. The barn itself is lovely inside and out. The little private garden with hot tub is a lovely space to hang around too. Location is secluded enough to enjoy the peace and quiet and it does feel like your a world away from anywhere (as city people we love the break away), but you’re actually not too far from civilisation (short drive) if thats what you want. We would recommend the place to anyone thinking about booking we were more than happy with our choice and would definitely stay again. Thanks for a lovely stay!
Nathanael W said “Had a lovely long weekend!” July ’22
Just over the bridge to get to Plymouth but all the beaches in Cornwall are relatively quiet and easily accessible. Thank you.
Roman L said “Fantastic cottage with everything you need.” July ’22
Lots to do on the farm itself, beautiful Tamar river – such a good find! The kids really loved the tennis court and the game room.
Jagoda S said “Lovely place to stay. Private, quiet area to recharge your batteries!” July ’22
The welcoming basket with locally made products was also a nice touch and the hot tub was obviously the best!
Julie R said “My husband and I together with our dog thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Orchard Cottage.” July ’22
The cottage had everything we needed and has a lovely sunny garden, and the hot tub is just fantastic. The cottage is very remote and peaceful set within the grounds of a lovely farm with lots of friendly ducks.

Juliet L said “Thank you for a lovely weekend. The cottage was beautiful and we loved having the animals around. The hot tub and garden were also a big hit!” May ’22
Beautiful place to stay, would definitely recommend. The cottage is well equipped, clean and comfortable. The garden gets lots of sunshine and the hot tub is of course a winner. The farm itself is beautiful and quaint, with ducks and peacocks roaming around. Beautiful part of the country.
Fiona E said “Really peaceful spot, perfect for a relaxing long weekend.” May ’22
The barn feels so far away from everything but in reality is just a short drive from Saltash and Launceston making it perfectly situated for many of the delights of Cornwall. The barn was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Absolutely everything was thought of – Olivia and Ed even provided an extra towel for the dog! The farm eggs, apple juice and flowers were a lovely touch that made us feel very welcome. We booked this trip to reconnect after several months of separation due to work and we were so glad we did. It was great to get back from a long day of walking, slip into the wood-fired hot tub and hear nothing but the peaceful sounds of the birds.
Ali C said “Thanks for an amazing stay. We loved every second of it. It really is a special place to stay.” April ’22
This is such a unique and special experience. We loved every second of it. If you’re looking for some time away from the everyday norm, this is it.
Tracey G said “We all loved our stay at the Kingfisher Barn, so peaceful and relaxing. Lovely walk to the river in the mornings and evenings which was perfect with the dog. Lots of things to keep the grandchildren amused for which I am truly grateful. Staying somewhere with such character, with the peacocks, ducks and chickens made our stay absolutely perfect. Thankyou.” April ’22
As a family of six adults and two children, we loved our stay at the Kingfisher Barn. Plenty of room, clean and tidy with everything you need for self catering. A peaceful and relaxing enclosed garden with a hot tub, lots of toys and games to entertain the grandchildren who could even hand feed the peacocks, ducks and chickens. Lovely walk to the river from the door. Ideal spot to stay for our visits to Kingsand and Cawsand and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Greg W said “Perfect retreat to relax and unwind.” April ’22
Amazing setting away from the modern noise of the cities and towns. Peaceful and tranquil amongst the wildlife with the added bonus of a hot tub to listen to the birds 🙂

Wonderful warm welcome from Olivia was the start of a perfect stay at this amazing, quiet, secluded retreat, right on the doorstep of so many wonderful Cornish beauty spots. Hot tub was lovely, even had a barn owl fly over while we were soaking. Idyllic.
Ellie O said “The location of this property is just lovely.” April ’22
So nice to step outside and only hear birds and nature. The local walks are really nice too. Olivia is such an amazing host answering all our questions when we saw her and couldn’t be more helpful.
Rach N said “This place is a gem! All other reviews are spot on.” April ’22
Warm, cozy and had everything we needed. The hot tub was absolutely perfect and grounds are beautiful. We totally recommend and would love to return.
Joshua E said “Great place fantastic and peaceful hot tub.” March ’22
The log burner makes the place feel very homely – more than enough wood available too. The place is very well equipped. Fresh eggs and milk was a nice touch! We would definitely stay again. I would certainly recommend using Waze to get there as other sat nav’s send you down roads that are way too narrow unless you’re on a motorbike! This is all very well explained in the info pack provided beforehand.
Mandy C said “Thank you we made fab memories what more can you ask for, you made our stay very special!” March ’22
Our stay was just what we needed a fantastic place to relax and unwind! Olivia couldn’t do enough to help and was very responsive when I contacted her during our stay with questions. Her kindness made our stay along with the fantastic accommodation and cleanliness. The attention to detail and welcoming items are lovely examples of the thoughtfulness that has been given to our stay, we especially loved sitting in the hot tub listening to the owls in the evening watching the moon and stars, just sublime, this is a true gem of a place!
Tom D said “The hot tub and log burner are fantastic additions to the property which make it all the more special, and we really enjoyed honing our firemaking abilities!” February ’22
Fantastic property in a perfect location. The property is very well equipped to a high standard – Olivia and Ed are great hosts and make every effort to ensure you have a great stay. The hot tub was a great addition – the property is perfect for a relaxing trip away.
Amy M said “Would definitely recommend!” February ’22
We stayed at Kingfisher Barn with our family of 4 and another family of 4. We had 4 children in our group. There is plenty to do and the games room was a total life saver when we visited in stormy weather. The barn is set in a beautiful location and you can walk down to TAMAR estuary directly from the farm. We would really recommend taking kids down to the park in the nearest village Cargreen it’s only a 15/20 minute walk and has an awesome view. On the farm there are geese, ducks and peacocks which the children loved. Would definitely recommend!
Ioana M said “I can’t imagine a better place to be while in Cornwall!” February ’22
We had such a wonderful time in our little Barn! Sadly the weather wasn’t on our side but the hot tub made it the best weather to experience and we have thoroughly enjoyed every moment. I can’t imagine a better place to be while in Cornwall!

The place is amazing, the pictures do not do it any justice! The walks to Lower Marsh Farm’s private shoreline are fun. The views are pretty. The cottage is spacious, clean and designed nicely, the log burner is amazing and there is plenty of wood. The hot tub is great and hot! We enjoyed it so much we extended our stay by an extra night. Would love to stay there again in the near future.
Abigail T said “We had an amazing stay at Bulrush Barn.” February ’22
Olivia was a great host and was in contact if there was anything we needed during our weekend. The accommodation was stunning and the wood fire hot tub was a personal favourite of ours. The bed was also super comfy! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a peaceful getaway, we’ll definitely be back!
Joanne J said “Lovely location, lovely accommodation, lovely people – lovely all round!” February ’22
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely barn – we had a WONDERFUL time!
Ian J said “Barn was great and so were the surroundings. Really enjoyed walking down to the river front.” February ’22
An excellent barn in a location that is out of the way but not so far out of the way. Location was also nice and peaceful. As I was travelling for business didn’t have much chance to explore the local area but Olivia was able to accommodate a late check in which was very helpful for me.
Shruti K said “Thanks a lot for a wonderful stay!!“ January ’22
Great location with scenic views and amazing nature trails nearby. Hot tub under the stars and fireplace in the cottage were the highlights.
Alex W said “Thanks for a relaxing stay and the afternoon tea on arrival was perfect.“ January ’22
Quiet and peaceful location with everything you need for a self-catering break. Useful to have a car to visit some of the surrounding villages and beautiful scenery.
Elise H said “Absolutely wonderful place to stay.“ January ’22
Very welcoming with everything you could need. I had a lovely time just me and my dog. Perfect place for some solitude and rest.

Danielle B said “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kingfisher Barn. Lower Marsh Farm is an idyllic setting, perfect for a tranquil getaway.” January ’22
The barn is very comfortable and well set up with lots of thoughtful touches – Olivia has thought of everything. We were especially impressed and grateful for all the baby and child friendly offerings! We were four generations, the youngest 18 months and the oldest 90 – there was something for everyone from the hot tub to games room and plenty of nice walks. Would highly recommend Kingfisher Barn, we will certainly be back.
Kate J said “Wonderful for a large group” December ’21
What a lovely place to spend New Year and celebrating a 40th birthday with friends. We rented out all 3 accommodations and it worked brilliantly as those of us with children were in the main house and those without had privacy in their own accommodation but the main house was big enough for us all to gather in the evenings and the plus was ‘Bulrush Barn’ which was a fab communal space where we celebrated New Year. Having been initially worried it would be cold, we lit the fire and ended up having to let it go very low as we were all so hot ????. The whole place was beautifully decorated for Christmas. The whole place seemed to be very well equipped – even with a supply of wellies that came in very handy as a couple of the children had forgotten theirs. There were a couple of lovely walks and I bet it’s wonderful in the summer with all that space. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to go away as a large group with children.
Shell said “Wonderful family and friends break” December ’21
We stayed at Lower Marsh with friends & family to celebrate a special birthday and enjoy New Year together
We stayed in the main large accommodation which was very big and very well equipped. The owners had literally thought of everything and were so helpful. We were met with fresh local produce in the kitchen and great local info to plan our trip
We cooked a lot and there was everything you needed – shops are a quick drive away – lanes are quite narrow but you soon get used to the route. The farm has peacocks, ducks, chickens and cows which was great for the children. The main house is an upside down house with a good kitchen, dining area and lounge. Beautifully decorated for the festive season. Downstairs there are 4 bedrooms a bathroom & an extra toilet. There is also access to another bathroom in the boot room. The boot room has wellies to borrow & drying rack etc. Above is a great games room & we were also able to use a large room to celebrate in with big tables, fridge, lights etc. Main house hot tub is big and easy to use. The owners live opposite & are really helpful but not intrusive. Great walks around the farm. Friends rented the other available cottages and had their own accommodation with hot tubs All in all we had a fabulous time after Covid enjoying a great settting in lovely accommodation . Owners really wanted us to have a great break. Can’t wait to come back and would love to come in the Summer to stay in the yurts.
Emily H said “Would definitely return!” December ’21
Great for a long weekend away! Despite being on the farm with other cottages, the barn felt very nice and private, with the hot tub not being overlooked at all! Olivia was great, and very quick with responses to any queries we had – this was especially handy as we booked very last minute, and didn’t have to wait for ages for confirmation! Would definitely return!
Priscilla N said “What is great about this place is that it offers so much more from local business as well. December ’21
We stayed for 3 nights at the Bulrush Barn at the beginning of December for our birthday getaway weekend. It is in the middle of nowhere but that is what we wanted, Coming from busy London it was such a nice and peaceful place to get away.
The cottage was lovely with a spacious kitchen living room area. And a bedroom that is fit for 3 people and a very modern spacious bathroom.
It was very kind of them to give us a lemon drizzle cake for our birthday we also received fresh eggs, Cornish milk and apple juice from the farm.
What is great about this place is that it offers so much more from local business as well.
We went in to town and had a few drinks at Barbican Botanics (that was recommended by Lower Marsh Farm on their website) before dinner at Fletchers we had such a great evening. Our cab driver was very helpful and was such a laugh and made our evening so much better he was also recommended in the handbook in the barn we stayed in and we also received a discount for using him.
We recommend this place as a must stay for a staycation. And we can’t wait to visit again.
Sam T said “not a place to miss out on, situated in a beautiful area with fantastic walks and local beaches.” November ’21

We loved the hot tub and location.
Kay said “Beautiful” October ’21
Lovely house – warm, cosy and definitely comfortable. The amenities were fabulous and I ended up using the wellies instead of my own boots! After a game of family table tennis, taking to the ducks, Hen’s and peacocks was a great treat for our 7 year old.
Victoria B said “Everybody loved the trip, and the set up was just perfect for us.” October ’21
The facilities were great and the rooms just wonderful; I was particularly thrilled with my room (in Bulrush Barn with the log fired hot tub). The hot tubs were centre stage of the weekend! They made it extra special.
Lauren T said “Our accommodation was beautiful and clean. The location was stunning and peaceful.” October ’21

Elaine W said “The countryside setting is perfect. The facilities are great and everything is provided including the fire wood for the hot tub! :-)” October ’21
We have just arrived home after the most relaxing, tranquil break at Bulrush Barn. It was peaceful and relaxing. The countryside setting is perfect. The facilities are great and everything is provided including the fire wood for the hot tub! 🙂 Within a 10 minute journey a well stocked Waitrose is useful. We ate at the “Who’d Have Thought It Inn” approximately 20 minute journey from the Barn – a lovely pub with food. Thank you for a great holiday location.
Tracey H said “We had a lovely stay and were very impressed with the size and quality of the accommodation.” October ’21
We had a lovely stay and were very impressed with the size and quality of the Kingfisher Barn accommodation. You certainly have a very special place and I hope to return during better weather for a proper explore and a soak in that lovely hot tub! Knowing how well-enclosed the garden is, I might be tempted to bring the dog next time.
Zoe said “Bulrush Barn is a fabulous place to stay, to get away from all the hustle and bustle of every day life and recharge your batteries.” October ’21
Everything is catered for:- super sized comfortable bed, lovely log burner, huge spacious bathroom, great log burning hot tub, fantastic local walks immersing yourself in the beautiful Cornish countryside and friendly local advice of places to visit and explore. Olivia is a fabulous host who goes above and beyond to make your visit special.
Jamie D said “We would definitely stay again.” October ’21
We had a great stay in Orchard cottage (2 humans + 1 pup). Enclosed garden was great for him and we loved the hot tub and log burner in the evening. The farm was very peaceful, but you will need a car to get about due to the remote location. We would definitely stay again.

Carl M said “All in all I have to say this is one of the nicest places we have stayed and would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.” September ’21
We stayed in Orchard Cottage for a week at the end of August in to September 2021 and all I can say is what a lovely place This is, lovely and comfortable and really clean there’s a nice walled enclosed garden ideal if you have a dog, and a private hot tub a proper one not a lazy spa and it’s cleaned and water changed between each guest which is very reassuring.
The owners have really thought of everything you could need even welly boots you can borrow, games DVDs even a picnic hamper for those walks in the countryside, there was a lovely hamper waiting for us on arrival with local produce some eggs form there own ducks and chickens and there home made apple juice.
All in all I have to say this is one of the nicest places we have stayed and would recommend it to anyone without hesitation.
Tara W said “Thank you so much for such a great stay. It was the perfect first holiday as a family.” September ’21
We had such an amazing trip to Cornwall. Everyone at the farm is so friendly and welcoming. The farm overall is fantastic. It was our first trip with a new baby so I was definitely a bit apprehensive but the communication from Olivia in the lead up was so helpful along with the extra supplies they provided like a cot, change mat etc. Overall the Bulrush Barn is beautiful and the wood burning hot tub was an added bonus along with the lovely welcome basket. We will definitely be back!
Hayley S said “A little place of paradise” September ’21

We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Lower Marsh Farm.

Jan S said “Absolutely fantastic place.” July ’21
We had a brilliant week’s holiday despite the weather! Beautiful accommodation with sweet and useful welcome basket. Great walks straight from the doorstep including down to the estuary. Loved all the ducks, peacocks, Highland cattle and wildlife. We saw an owl fly over us while sitting in the hot tub which was amazing! We also watched numerous bats and just enjoyed the peace and quiet. We loved hanging out in the hammock and even had our own little Wimbledon in the tennis court! The owners are lovely and we had a great chat with Olivia about all things farm. I particularly loved the focus on recycling and using green cleaning and washing up products. We could enjoy our holiday with a warm fuzzy feeling that we weren’t having a negative impact on the environment! Cannot recommend highly enough. Dog friendly which is the icing on the cake. We’ll definitely be back.
Andrew M said “Wonderful place to stay, we can’t praise it enough.” July ’21
A gem of a place set in a friendly rural location. You will obviously need transport as this is a bit away from the maddening crowd. We particularly loved the secluded hot tub, even in the rain! Accommodation clean and well equipped, faultless really. Had a fabulous time and thoroughly recommended to anyone.
Lisa L said “Only wish we had stayed longer, Would definitely stay again.” June ’21
Had a lovely time at Kingfisher, the house was just as described and nice little touches like eggs and juice were there on arrival. Quiet secluded area by river in walkable distance for fishing and paddle boarding. Even more of a surprise were the pea chicks that hatched whilst we were there. Great hosts who gave recommendations on places to go and were very accommodating. Only wish we had stayed longer, Would definitely stay again.

Olivia is a great host & communication was good pre booking and during the stay. The setting itself is so peaceful & the barn is very well designed and has everything you’d need-and more! The accommodation was by far the cleanest we’ve been to! We didn’t end up using the hot tub, but it looked relaxing & peaceful, and not over looked at all! The tennis court was great fun, and no hassle to have to book or anything – just walked straight on! A very short walk to a cove to see the water and a short drive to a big Waitrose! Thank you!
Luke C said “Lovely property, we had a brilliant family stay and enjoyed exploring the farm.” June ’21

Kirsty L said “Beautiful farm and cottage.” June ’21
Beautiful farm and cottage. Olivia was very helpful when I got lost arriving. Visits to Tintagel Castle and Lost Gardens of Heligan about 1hr 10mins away are worth a visit. Hot tub was a welcoming sight after a long day out.

Samantha H said “We had such a great stay at the Kingfisher Barn!” May ’21
We had such a great stay at the Kingfisher Barn! The accommodation was as described and worked well for our 2 families of 4 (kids aged between 7-4) with particularly strong reviews for the bunk beds from the 7 year olds 🙂 The property was beautiful with some great walks and areas to explore. The kids loved feeding the animals and collecting fresh eggs in the morning. The hot tub was a nice feature for everyone. The host was very efficient and helpful. The staff were so friendly, helpful and amazing. We ordered one of the heat up suppers on evening and the lasagne was delicious. The local area was also great – it wasn’t too far to Seaton Beach which is perfect for the kids and has a nice cafe. We also went to a Landmark Trust at Cotehele (about 20 mins away) which was a great little visit. Overall a great spot to relax and enjoy the Tamar Valley.
Lauren A said “Fab place and fantastic host!” May ’21

Allison K said “A beautiful place to stay – remote enough to get in touch with nature with walks through the salt marshes – but close enough for days out in the area if you want to do that too.” May ’21
Wonderful touches with fairy lights and a hot tub for your private use – and loads of wellies to borrow if it is wet. Lovely place and the host is very friendly and helpful. Free roaming ducks, chickens and peacocks just top it all off. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed ourselves and loved the small thoughtful touches – like flowers on the table, the eggs you gave us and kindly unpacking our groceries and putting them away. Thanks to you all.
Christopher R said “A must visit for those hoping for a peaceful, secluded getaway surrounded by stunning views.” May ’21

From arrival to leaving, the cottage was an idyllic get away from noise and cars and super to come back to after we went out for a day when the weather allowed. Comfy, warm, everything you need. A superb bathroom and a great hot tub which was used across the stay whilst watching the ducks go by! Great local eggs from the ducks and hens. There’s also a beautiful peacock and peahen, to sit and admire! We order food for our arrival and some extras, it was all superb and every detail taken care of. Thank you, a special birthday weekend indeed.

Margo S said “It was absolutely heavenly staying there and we hope to come back again some day.” April ’21
What a gorgeous place! The house itself is the perfect balance of modern amenities with classic charm. The farm itself was a lovely place to walk and it’s near to several lovely hiking spots. WiFi worked decently well too for being out in the country. The eggs and apple juice were fresh and delicious, and our hosts were incredibly helpful.”
Charlotte B said “This was the perfect place to get some respite. I can’t put into words how relaxing the farm is.” April ’21
We booked Orchard Cottage last minute to get away for a few nights after going through a bad time. This was the perfect place to get some respite. I can’t put into words how relaxing the farm is. Orchard Cottage was clean, social distancing comes naturally to the environment. Dogs are exceptionally well catered for and our boy loved making friends with the peacocks and ducks. The cottage is attached to the main farmhouse but you wouldn’t know it, completely secluded and private including the hot tub. Garden looks out onto orchard, marshlands and courtyard. We spent 2 days just in the cottage but also offered a great base to explore Cornwall from for another couple of days. Olivia and the other people on the farm are so friendly and welcoming, they are a family and we particularly liked the touches like the honesty shop including William and Ethan’s shop! Communication was spot on. We knew the place was special when we found it here but the photos really don’t do it justice for what an amazing place it is to relax and just be! Thanks so much Olivia and co, we will be back xx
Michelle F said “Amazing property” April ’21
Stayed at the cottage for our 25th wedding anniversary, when we arrived we had a card and a cake left for us also milk so we could have a cuppa. Beautiful cottage with everything you would need for your stay with beautiful views and walks to go on. Hot tub was amazing just lovely early evening with a glass of wine. Would recommend this place for any romantic get away. Had a wonderful time and hopefully book the bigger cottage to bring the children with us.

The cottage comes highly recommended from me, really well designed and kitted out holiday stay, lovely fire, fun games room and a hot tub, an absolute treat! Super easy check in and great instructions provided, a beautiful farm and relaxed atmosphere. Olivia was really welcoming and very helpful with some items we left behind, some of the farms apple juice was waiting for us on arrival which was a nice touch. The space is bigger than the pictures probably suggest, kitchen well appointed, really warm and cosy, I can’t recommend enough ????

We had such a lovely time here at Orchard Cottage, Olivia was a great host she gave us some local tips on the area and pointed us in the right direction for some scenic walkways. We booked the hot tub with our cottage stay once heated it can go up to 40 degrees you can adjust yourself to preference, perfect temperature for the winter if your looking to go for a dip. She also provided all kitchen utensils which was really helpful as we didn’t want for anything. I would highly recommend this place to stay to others and we will be back in the future. Thanks again Jade and Tobias.

Jessica R said “We are recently back from a wonderful week at Lower Marsh Farm!” September ’20
We stayed in Bulrush Barn, the barn is so cute and perfect for a couple – very private and secluded, the welcome hamper was a really lovely touch that made us feel instantly welcome. Bulrush was very clean and well stocked with pretty much everything you could need (for coffee lovers there is a cafetiere – so bring some ground coffee with you). We also had a wonderful afternoon tea ready for when we arrived, if you’re thinking about it I would recommend adding this on as it was fantastic – best scones we had!
We used the barn as a base to explore a fair bit of Cornwall, it was our first visit so had a lot of things on our list. Pretty much everything is in relatively easy reach, we made it down as far as Penzance one day. There are also some well-mapped walks on the farm, we did a little stomp down to the river through the woodland which was really nice. The hot tub in the garden was great to have, the stove takes a fair bit of getting used to (if, like us, you’re not used to wood burners!) but Pete very kindly helped us get it going – and gave us some tips. Once you get the hang of it it’s very easy to do!
As a few have mentioned the farm is a bit of a drive from the village – we loved this as were looking for something remote and quiet, it was really lovely to come back from a day out and be somewhere so peaceful. If you’re looking for a relaxing retreat from daily life or a lovely base to explore Cornwall and Devon I couldn’t recommend Lower Marsh Farm more, we will be back!
Aimee B said “Just lovely” August ’20
We have just come back from a fantastic week in Lower Marsh farm. We stayed in Orchard Cottage which was so perfectly cosy ! The cottage was spotless, well equipped, amazing hot tub and enclosed garden which was so perfect for our spaniel. The welcome hamper of yummy goodies was such a lovely touch too. The farm is just perfect for a peaceful stay, you literally can’t hear anything except nature and the quacking of the on-site ducks (very entertaining along with the naughty peacocks!). Plenty to do onsite, we enjoyed putting on wellies and going for a muddy walk down to the river and just sitting back and relaxing. This was our first time to Cornwall and we enjoyed visiting the local towns as well as the tourist hotspots (these are a fair drive from the village, however we loved being able to return from a busy day at beaches to such a peaceful location). Very helpful and friendly owners. Would defiantly recommend a stay at Lower Marsh Farm!

We visited with our two dogs for 4 days and ended up extending our stay. We were in Bulrush Barn and absolutely loved it. Beautifully put together and tastefully furnished. A real treat for two people needing to unwind. Hot tub fab and garden wonderful… Not overlooked and completely safe for our huge dogs. Team were fab and very welcoming. We booked two nights of cooked meals and really enjoyed them. Highly recommended!!!
Kristina G said “Gorgeous farm and perfect for a group or family holiday as so much space and things to do, really great facilities with lots of privacy. The tennis courts were brilliant as well as the hot tub.” August ’20
Lovely to wake up in a hidden part of Devon and to enjoy the scenic walks nearby. Could not recommend more as the host is lovely and accommodating 🙂
Gemma B said “Orchard Cottage is outstanding, the grounds are so beautiful with a games rooms and tennis courts. The private hot tub is the cherry on top.” August ’20
Lots of great walks nearby which we loved! The cottage itself was clean and cosy. Olivia sent a wonderful information pack in advance which allowed us to research the area and have everything we need prior to arriving. Thank you again, we loved it!
Hannah L said “Bulrush Barn is a gorgeous and looks exactly as pictured, with ample space for 2-3 people.” August ’20
Extensive welcome pack was provided which contained all of the information needed for our stay. The surrounding area is lovely and all of the people we met were very friendly and helpful. Special mention must go to the birthday cake that we arranged to be made and delivered which was one of the nicest cakes we’ve ever had. Highly recommend!
Lucy V said “We had a great week at Lower Marsh Farm. This is a beautiful spot with plenty to do and also a great place to relax.” August ’20
We were blessed with great weather and the kids loved the hot tub. The house had everything we needed and was comfortable. Olivia was a good host an hand to help with any questions we had and the kids loved cuddling the peacock chicks! I shall miss saying good morning to the geese every day.
Hayley T said “A wonderful stay, the farm is adorable” August ’20
The Swedish wood fired hot tub was fab, the private beach and meadows are defiantly worth a visit as it’s very relaxing in the sunshine! A beautiful stay, the farm is adorable and the little touches left on arrival such as the fresh farm apple juice and the posy of flowers on the table. The farm itself was fab, and the private beach and meadow hammock was our fave places to spend the days! Thanks very much!
Danielle S said “Thank you for such a great stay. Having been shielding for so long it was fantastic to get away safely and have a peaceful break away. We loved every minute and didn’t want to leave. The Apple juice went down very well with my son also! Thanks again, would definitely recommend and hope to return back again in the future!” July ’20
The cottage is just as described (if not better!) we had a self check in which was perfect with social distancing, we arrived to a nice cool cottage on a hot afternoon, apple juice on the table & milk in the fridge. Great to settle in with a cup of tea! The hot tub is tucked away nicely in the garden next to the back door and was incredibly peaceful listening to the wildlife. There are some great walks around, we walked down to the River Tamar which was only a short walk away. We enjoyed having a game of tennis too and borrowed some games from the games room. Absolutely fantastic stay, highly recommend.
Olivia H said “Brilliant weekend, lovely barn with nice rural walks surrounding.” July ’20
The hot tub was thoroughly enjoyed during all weathers that we experienced and only took an hour to heat up. Thoughtful touches with the fresh eggs and apple juice. We would definitely return.
Hayley D-H said “Will most definitely be staying again.” July ’20
Property above expectations, clean and interiors decorated and designed to a high standard. Hot tub was ace!. The owner was very welcoming and accommodating and a great cook ( well worth trying her home cooked food). Plenty to do on the farm and so peaceful. Will most definitely be staying again.
Gaspard M said “Fantastic cottage in one of the most beautiful countryside backdrops in England.” July ’20
Fantastic cottage in one of the most beautiful countryside backdrops in England. Olivia was very helpful and welcoming and the property and hot tub were outstanding. Some great wood walks around the enchanting Tamar valley and riverbank. We didn’t want to leave! Would definitely visit again.
Chris M said “we had a wonderful stay and would definitely return” July ’20
Lovely peaceful getaway, Hot tub was lush If you go for make sure to borrow wellies. Nice personal touches a personalised cake, apple juice, fresh eggs and milk on arrival.
Anthony D said “Excellent rural spot in the Cornwall countryside.” July ’20
Short drives to many seaside towns and good local pubs and produce to sample. The farm animals on site are a nice relaxing distraction from city life. The eggs from the farm were fantastic not forgetting the apple juice too. The hot tub is a nice way to end a days hiking. Thank you”
Anna T said “Beautiful quiet cottage with a hot tub and tennis court.” July ’20
The place is easy to find with lovely hosts. There’s chickens and ducks wondering around which is lovely. The accommodation itself was clean, well equipped and tidy. Would recommend!”
Allison P said “The property as a whole was perfect with all it had to offer.” July ’20
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Orchard Cottage for 2 weeks and had such an amazing time. The property as a whole was perfect with all it had to offer. The cottage itself was absolutely perfect as well. We went in the hot tub almost every night. Olivia is a great host and is super nice. She had a little basket of goodies waiting for us when we arrived! Overall, we had an amazing time and would highly recommend this property! Would love to come back! Thank you Olivia!!
Stephanie W said “This was a beautiful place to stay – away from all the hustle and bustle.” March ’20
The property was beautifully maintained, and there were several extra touches included that added to the experience. The place was spotless and the spa outside was the cherry on top!
Patrick S said “We would highly recommend this place to stay.” March ’20
It is a very modern and well equipped converted barn in the middle of beautiful countryside. Olivia is also a brilliant and incredibly considerate host.
Holly M said “We had a fantastic time!” February ’20
Lovely barn! Great place to relax and great that it was dog friendly too!
Gavin H said “Quiet farm setting, amazing fire and comfy bedrooms” February ’20
Quiet farm setting, amazing fire and comfy bedrooms, well equipped kitchen. Fresh eggs from ducks & chickens were very tasty!
Lisa C said “Absolutely immaculate space” February ’20
Absolutely immaculate space with little foodie treats on arrival, helpful information pack sent prior to arrival, quick and efficient communication. We managed to book for the weekend of a horrendous storm but it didn’t stop us getting out and about! Loved the basket of eggs, apple juice etc, that was a really nice touch.
Louisa S said “We had an amazing stay here and Olivia was a super host.” February ’20
The children loved the games room and it was a great place to entertain them in poor weather conditions. The hot tub was a real delight and to be able to walk out from the house with the dogs and leave the car behind was an added bonus. Olivia supplied us with wellie boots and told us where to spot the barn owls and the weather didn’t stop us doing anything. The house is well equipped, great TV and surround sound for relaxing with a movie, comfy sofas and a lovely woodburner. Would highly recommend and we can’t wait to return.
Ashleigh S said “The farm is perfect, so quiet and peaceful. ” January ’20
My partner and I stayed at the Orchard Cottage for 3 nights recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Olivia was very helpful right from the start and throughout or stay. The cottage was perfect – clean, well decorated and with all the amenities you need. The private hot tub was the icing on the cake for us – well worth the additional £30 charge during the winter months. There are plenty of suggested walks, pubs and days out in the welcome pack. We enjoyed a walk around the farm and down along the waterfront. We also visited the recommended pubs for food – what a fantastic suggestion! The location was just fantastic with only the quacking of excited ducks in the morning to wake you! We had a fantastic weekend, thank you so much to Olivia and everyone at Lower Marsh Farm. We will be back :-)”
Luke S said “Bulrush Barn is an amazing find – the barn itself was immaculate and the perfect place for us to stay for 10 nights.” January ’20
Olivia was extremely accommodating and helped to make sure that we had everything we needed prior to arrival – we were traveling with our 16 month old as well and Olivia was kind enough to have a full crib (cot) set up and ready for us. Everyone on the farm was friendly and welcoming to us all. We can not recommend this Barn highly enough – Thank You Olivia!
Hannah R said “Olivia was really good at communicating with us before our booking and arrival, which we were incredibly grateful…” December ’19
Olivia and Ed were both so welcoming and Olivia showed us to our cottage and how to work the hot tub etc.. Whilst the barn is obviously part of the family farm, it still offers superb privacy and it didn’t feel as though we were staying close by to anyone. It was clean, cosy, very well equipped for cooking and entertainment.
Leeann D said “Lovely host and lovely cottage” December ’19
I took my hubby and 2 dogs to lower Marsh farm over the new year and we had such a relaxed few days, Olivia had left out a lovely welcome gift of apple juice and brownies which were divine! She also had dog bowls, towels and poo bags for the doggies! Oh and the Christmas tree was such a delight to have. The area itself is lovely with plenty of walks and only a short drive to a local supermarket… stock up on way as you’ll probably not want to leave the cottage unless for a stroll 🙂
Matt C said “Really enjoyed our stay! Such a lovely cottage and farm! Would certainly recommend.” December ’19
Lovely cottage and farmhouse, with a lovely walk to the river. Hot tub and fire were perfect for relaxing after a day out exploring.
Elissa G said “Thank you so much for having us to stay. We all had such a wonderful Xmas and the barn was loved by all. Happy New Year! ????” December ’19
Kingfisher Barn was an absolute joy to stay in. We had an incredible time, the space was relaxing, clean, comfortable for a big group and had all the extra touches like the fire place and hot tub for keeping warm. Olivia is a fab host and would recommend for all. Would book again in the future.
Steph T said “Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage. We had the most lovely and relaxing Christmas. Stunning surroundings and beautiful decor inside.” December ’19
Orchard Cottage is beautiful and homely from the minute you walk in. Super clean, really tasteful and modern country decor, lovely log burner and hot tub was icing on cake after lots of days out visiting and walking.
Stephanie C said “What a wonderful place” December ’19
What an amazing get away. With great attention to detail, big comfortable bed, amazing shower and water pressure, the hot tub is so much fun and right on the back door step.
Rob C said “Great spot, great place, great hot tub…..just great. Chris’ cooking is worth trying also :-)” November ’19
What a great place in a lovely setting. The lasagnes were awesome…..I actually preferred the Vegan one, now that is a first!
Kelly M said “Peaceful and private, we had a lovely week of feeling totally at one with nature ????” October ’19
The barn was spotlessly clean, and the management couldn’t do enough to help. Would definitely recommend, and would love to return in the summer!
Sharon T said “Warm and comfortable. Wonderful log burner.” October ’19
Hosts were extremely helpful and went out of their way to assist by going to buy a new DVD player when we had problems with the existing one. They provided plenty of extra things too for the young children. It is a quiet and peaceful place in which to relax – especially with the hot tub. We enjoyed some interesting walks around the grounds and to the river.
James S said “Olivia’s place is beautiful. It’s situated in beautiful countryside and the farm itself is huge.” October ’19
We really enjoyed the trip and loved walking around the farm, the woods and down to the private beach area. It was so quiet and relaxing and Olivia and Ed were great hosts who did everything they could to make the trip wonderful. Highly recommend getting a massage on the premises and then dipping into the hot tub! Thanks!”
Abi K said “Wonderful stay at this very sweet cottage.” October ’19
Was perfect for walking and seeing the local area, we especially loved the Highland Cows that were on the farm. We visited Looe and Plymouth and went for lots of walks just from the cottage which was perfect. Hot tub was lovely addition in the enclosed garden over looking the orchard!
Alex S said “We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at the barn. ” October ’19
A good quiet location with a really great finish to the barn. The hot tub was an added plus! The barn was immaculate when we arrived and Olivia was a great host.
Tegan A said “Thanks for the great few days. We had a great time and loved the peacefulness of the cottage. Will recommend to anyone travelling to this area!” September ’19
This cottage is in a wonderful location if you are wanting a peaceful, quaint getaway. The hosts offer plenty of amenities if required. A bit of a drive to other attractions in the area but that did not bother us as we don’t mind the drive. Also, there are plenty of things to do on the property. There are footpaths through the property that reach a secluded shore on Tamar River which was absolutely beautiful. We enjoyed the games room which had table tennis and relaxed on the hammock near the orchard. The cottage had all the necessities for self catering and the hot tub was a great bonus. Would recommend this stay to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday!
Matt L said “This place is beautiful.” September ’19
The accommodation is refurbed to a brilliant standard. Lovely space. Great local walks, a beautiful park of the country.
Alex S said “We had a fabulous stay and loved every moment of the beautiful location and the animals.” September ’19
Fantastic location, views are stunning and so peaceful. Also the ducks and chickens which greet you every time you arrive back are just fabulous. The accommodation is lovely and more than adequate. Hot tub was nice and relaxing. Olivia was a fab host who was always on hand if you wanted to ask anything and was very welcoming and friendly.
Sacha R said “Lower Marsh Farm was a perfect base for us to stay with our four small dogs” August ’19
Orchard Cottage was absolutely lovely. Really clean, secure garden (for our dogs) & the hot tub was the icing on the cake. Had a great week there & intend to come back.
Simon H said “A lovely property very well kitted out, which is in a great location to explore the local area particularly If you like walking!” August ’19
Lovely accommodation and great location for our brief business & leisure stay.
Jennifer W said “Rest in the country” August ’19
We had two wonderful weeks at Orchard Cottage. Olivia is a great hostess and we were warmly welcomed on arrival. Fresh flowers and a welcome basket of treats from the farm and Cornwall awaited us in the cottage. The cottage is very well equipped and even in bad weather you can make a good bequest. We will definitely go back to the farm again.
Phillip T said “Bulrush Barn is an amazing place to stay, not only is the accommodation stylish, the setting is very peaceful and tranquil” August ’19
Thank you for being a great host. Bulrush Barn was beautiful accommodation and an incredible setting, we really enjoyed our stay!
Margaret W said “I can not recommend this highly enough” August ’19
If you want a quiet spot and a friendly welcome, I can not recommend this highly enough. Olivia is an amazing host. The barn was clean comfortable and peaceful. With walks and activities on the doorstep and close to Plymouth, there are lots of things to do. Or a perfect spot if you just want to relax.
Stacey H said “Thank you so much for a beautiful place to stay, we can’t wait to come back” August ’19
The most beautiful, tranquil place. The barn is stunning & had everything you could need and more. We had some fabulous days out, Looe, Plymouth, Newquay but we all couldn’t wait to get back to the barn each evening! We will most definitely be back.
Mieke R said “This is such a lovely house! ” July ’19
The house is beautiful renovated. The bathroom is wonderful with a bath and a great shower. The bed is huge. They have a little playground for children in the garden. Our little one had a lot of fun. Highly recommended.
Rosanagh R said “Wonderful experience, beautiful recently renovated property. “ July ’19
Wonderful experience, beautiful recently renovated property. Kitchen and bathroom separate and well designed studio. Lovely garden and broader property to play tennis, walk and roam. Great for families too with lots of activities.
Adam M said “We had a lovely stay, the barn was perfect and such a peaceful location. Thanks for everything.” July ’19
The perfect place for a peaceful rural retreat. Bulrush Barn is lovely and cosy, very well kitted out and a great size for 2 people and a dog. Olivia was very helpful and we were fortunate to be able to explore the farm during our stay. There are lots of nice walks and things to see, but also very quiet and peaceful. Made a very nice change from our usual city break. We shall be back for sure!
Jasmine G said “What a gem! We had a peaceful stay with our two dogs.”
Take advantage of Lily, the massage therapist who comes to farm, she was amazing! The place was clean and had everything you needed there. So many nice walks on the grounds of the farm and surrounding area. We’d highly recommend staying! July ’19
Rebecca H said “Lovely cottage! Exactly as the pictures are with private garden that was great for our puppy and the hot tub was a bonus! ” July ’19
All amenities working and great to have a dishwasher and washing machine!
Matt C said “Sparkly clean and a great location, dog friendly with lovely touches such a local apple juice and flowers on arrival.” July ’19
Thanks for having us- we very much enjoyed our stay!
Dan S said “House was lovely . Had everything that we could have wished for with our new baby” June ’19
Excellent communication. We would recommend the apple pie on arrival that was particularly delicious!
Chintan T said “Great barn, lovely and responsive hosts… ” June ’19
Olivia greeted us as soon as we got there, told us about local shops and such, place was really clean, accommodated last minute requests for baby stuff (stair-gate, high chair and much more), responded quickly to any issues we had and also had nice personal touches (little treat in the kitchen when we got there, had family games, books to read, etc). Would definitely consider staying there again if we go to Cornwall again. Thanks for a hassle-free stay!
Xia P said “All in all a fantastic stay and would definitely book again!” June ’19
The team at Lower Marsh Farm have thought of everything you could possibly want in a self-catered stay! We stayed for 3 days as a mini-moon after our wedding to get some peace and quiet and relax. We were not disappointed! I was able to book some romantic extras upon our arrival at the cottage such as rose petals on the bed, and a breakfast in bed hamper, and we were also surprised to find some delicious “Mr & Mrs” chocolate cakes left for us! I also ordered a dinner for one night which was the most delicious fish pie I have ever had! And there was enough left over for dinner for the next night! The hot tub in our garden was amazing! Despite being in the middle of the farm, we felt so secluded. It was lovely having the ducks and hens around the pond just over the fence, we loved listening to them quack and chirp, and watching the little ducklings waddle around. Finally, I had organised some pampering treatments which were absolutely amazing! Such a bonus to help us relax and de-stress at the end of our mini moon!
Stacey W said “One of the most beautiful places you could ever stay. We ran a retreat here and the 5* service, hospitality and venue definitely exceeded our expectations. Thank you to Olivia and her team, we will certainly return.” May ’19
What a treat to get to teach such friendly, open hearted, open minded people in a beautiful setting. We arrived, we moved, we ate, we drank, we moved a bit more, ate a bit more…. you get the idea! Thanks to our retreaters and our wonderful venue for a memorable weekend.
Calvin F says “very well presented: nicely designed, clean and very comfortable” April ’19
We stayed at the Bulrush Barn, Lower March Farm for 4 nights at the very end of April 2019. The Barn was very well presented: nicely designed, clean and very comfortable. Central heating and hot water is excellent. The Barn is situated in a lovely cobbled courtyard and the surrounding country side is beautiful, as you would expect. Watch out for the single track lanes, ubiquitous in the area and the only access to Lower Marsh Farm. Once you get used to them they are less ‘scary’ but expect to have to do some reversing during your stay. Olivia was a charming host and was available if anything needed sorting out. On our last morning ducklings were hatching and she invited us to see them, which was a real treat! Overall, our stay at the Barn was excellent and we would be happy to stay again, if the opportunity arose.
Kate W says “Perfect place to stay” April ’19
We stayed in Orchard Cottage at Lower Marsh Farm. The cottage is beautiful with everything you could ever need supplied. The hot tub was great and ready to jump in on our arrival. We took a 6 year old who loved every minute. Nice private walks around the farm and to the beach. Play area, games room and much more to keep you entertained at the farm. We went to a great animal sanctuary called Porfell and the Jamaica inn one of the days which was a great day out. We loved the ducks and chickens just outside the cottage garden and the beautiful views from the hammock. Would 100% recommend and love to return for another stay again some time.
Rebecca J says “The most beautiful and idyllic barn – the location was outstanding – so very tranquil and relaxing. The barn is extremely clean and the most amazingly comfy bed!” April ’19
We so enjoyed our stay, the barn and it’s location were beautiful. The bed was so very comfortable and lovely bed linen too. Lots of very useful utensils/resources in the barn. Extremely handy being able to pre order meals and breakfasts which were very good indeed. The barn is reached by quite a few lanes but within 6/7 mins you are on the main road; the location is amazing and the views of the river are beautiful as are the walks around there. We travelled to Port Isaac, St Ives, Cawsand and Looe very conveniently from Landulph. Would highly recommend.
Ennio D says “We loved our stay at the Orchard Cottage” April ’19
Olivia and her family are great hosts, the farm is beautiful, quiet and our dog had a great time too!”
Sandy D says “Beautiful location and facilities” April ’19
Lovely hamper of goodies on arrival and the kids loved fetching fresh eggs for breakfast every morning. House was lovely and spacious and the hot tub was a great finishing touch.
Paul S says “Great family property, very relaxing and good location for exploring the area” April ’19
Really enjoyed our stay in the Kingfisher Barn. The location was great for exploring the area, we visited a couple of National Trust properties, took the kids for the day to the local Adrenalin Quarry, which was good fun. Facilities at the barn were great, played table tennis and tennis several times and then have a relaxing soak in the hot tub in the evenings. Would highly recommend.
Helen Y says “Beautiful and peaceful accommodation bordering a stunning salt marsh and nature reserve.” March ’19
My wife and I stayed here for our first anniversary near the end of March 2019. The owners were incredibly welcoming, friendly and easy to talk to & get along with. Plenty of local history information, suggestions and directions for sights of interest, eateries and pubs, wildlife spotting and activities throughout the year. A very well furnished games room, tennis court and our cottage had a hot tub in the garden. Great walking links to the salt marsh, estuary and local village, with a wide selection of wellies available 🙂 ) Wildlife galore in the surrounding fields and woodland! The cottage we stayed in (Orchard Cottage) was fully equipped with modern touches with vintage rural charm, including exposed original wall structure and a wood stove, while the electric heating was great. The sight that welcomed us was a running water wheel. Waking to the sounds of birds, and meeting the farm’s ducks, chickens and peafowl was fantastic, as were the grazing highland cattle Certainly will look into bringing a family group here in the future.
Piers O says “We visited Bulrush Barn in January as a birthday treat. We weren’t disappointed!” February ’19
We walked in the grounds during the day and there is plenty to do and see but we especially looked forward to getting back to the cosy barn and lighting the log burner. The bed was very comfortable and the linen was clean and crisp! The bathroom was well fitted and sparkly – I do like a sparkly bathroom! Olivia and her team were very helpful and although they were there when we needed them, they were noninvasive and we really felt like we were in our own world! Wonderful place – we will return! Thank you for helping to make a short break feel like a great holiday!
Tina M says “Lovely well equipped cottage which was in a great location.” February ’19
…great location allowing us to explore the surrounding area including trips out to Eden, Cotehele, Mount Edgcumbe as well as the local footpaths and beaches. The cottage was warm and cozy with a hot tub available to sooth tired muscles after a day on our feet.
Andy L says ““Outstanding place for a relaxing break. Highly recommended.” February ’19
We had 4 adults and 4 children. All thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a little remote but taxis are not a problem and the quietness added to the enjoyment. The cottage is set over two floors with plenty of room for everyone. There is a games room and a hot tub. We enjoyed a walk to the estuary and took a taxi to the pub for a fantastic meal. A really relaxing break and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely recommend it to friends.
Jeanette Y says “Such a beautifully quiet location and a perfect place to stay to recharge your batteries. Very clean and cosy, cannot recommend staying here enough .” January ’19
Thank you Olivia, after a traumatic 2018 we both needed some relaxation and time away from the daily stress, your cottage and location allowed us to chill-out and just be ourselves xx
Tom S says “Great accommodation in a lovely, quiet location right by the Tamar estuary.” January ’19
Kingfisher Barn is well-equipped and the hot tub and games room are nice touches – as are the free-to-borrow wellies for walking the marsh! Olivia is a responsive and helpful host. Everyone loved the barn and the quiet location. Thanks for all the little extras like the apple juice and fudge.
Callum M says “the barn was absolutely beautiful. it was sparking clean, gorgeously decorated and had everything you could need.” January ’19
When we arrived there were some amazing home made goodies, fresh flowers and a Christmas tree which was very thoughtful. The bed was huge and incredibly comfy and the shower was amazing. There is everything you need to do any cooking and there is a dishwasher too. The log fire was one of the highlights (although the barn was lovely and warm without it) and logs were provided. We went with our two dogs and Olivia is very accommodating, with towels and dog beds to borrow if needed, and they enjoyed saying hello to the lovely resident lab. Although dogs are allowed you would have no idea, it is spotless and fresh. The farm is on a huge plot of land with country side walks and it has a small private beach. The location is perfect for exploring both Cornwall and Devon. We would definitely recommend it and would come back to stay again
Jessica C says “Was a lovely cottage escape for me and my partner” December ’18
We enjoyed the hot tub, wood fire and the lovely thoughtful touches of a Christmas tree and welcome pack information and refreshments. Olivia was very easy to contact and quickly replied.
Ian P says “Thank you for enabling us to have a great family Christmas” December ’18
The location and quality of the venue are just as described. If you want a quiet and well appointed place to stay then you won’t be disappointed. The hosts Olivia and Ed were extremely helpful and made our stay memorable.
Colette D says “Thank you so much for providing such a lovely place for us to stay. I will definitely recommend to anyone who asks! ” November ’18
This is a lovely place to stay. The pictures are very accurate and the house is very well equipped. We didn’t want for anything. The wood burner is fabulous and made the place cosy and warm even thought the living room is big and spacious. If you need to be in that area then I think this is a great place to stay.
Michael L says “The house is lovely for groups up to eight people with spacious living area.” November ’18
Spotlessly clean with good facilities for families including games room, tennis and hot tub, DVDs and lots of books. Comfortable beds and a real wood fire for those cold evenings make this large property feel cosy.
Marcelle M says “We expected it to be great from the photos and reviews, but it was even better than we expected” October ’18
The place is amazing. It is comfortable and in a great location. The amenities are fantastic and everything you need is there – including a bottle of milk and some tea/coffee etc. The place is spotless. The surrounding area is amazing – lovely walks and views. Our daughter loved the hens and ducks and the dog. All very friendly. And the play area is amazing too. I can’t wait to go back.
John D says “Thanks for a lovely stay, the three of us had a wonderful break on your perfect farm” October ’18
I’d wholeheartedly recommend Orchard Cottage to everyone, Olivia is the perfect host, offering advice on the local area and providing a wonderful, clean and comfortable space to rest and base your travels around such a beautiful part of the country.
Adrienn B says “We all really enjoyed our stay at your lovely barn! Definitely coming back in the future!” October ’18
This was one of our most relaxing holiday as a family! Kingfisher Barn has absolutely everything we needed! Our kids loved the game room as well as the tennis court(they were cycling around a lot ????). The hot tub was everyone’s favourite! Dads loved the fire place! We had great big walks in the forest and private beach too. Olivia is a friendly and helpful host! We are definitely coming back again in the future!
Olie B says “Great space, very relaxing and well located” October ’18
Erika O says “A magical place that is both adult and kid friendly” September ’18
King Fisher barn at Lower Marsh farm is a fantastic retreat down west country hedgerow lanes. A magical place that is both adult and kid friendly. Plenty of space, with four bedrooms on the lower level. Our daughter (age 4) had a wonderful time exploring the property and walking to the shoreline. The ducks and chickens were also a hit! The welcome basket of Cornish goodies was a lovely touch and thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommend!
Ella P says “A fabulous place to go when you need to get away from it all” September ’18
Peaceful and charming. Great for a bit of tranquillity and cosiness at the same time! A perfect place to have needed family time or alone time. Beautiful surroundings and a lovely house which was very homely. Loved the farm environment with the ducks greeting us every morning. If we needed anything Olivia was there to help, always on hand. Overall a lovely time away in this amazing place.
Jade G says “Absolutely fantastic stay. Beautiful location and fantastic amenities.” September ’18
Thank you for a lovely stay we had a fantastic time and you have a beautiful barn.
Emma C says “Perfect for a break away from the hustle and bustle of a big city” September ’18
My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights at Lower Marsh Farm (Bulrush Barn) and it was perfect for a break away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. It was lovely to be greeted with some fresh apple juice from the farm and Cornish fudge too, a lovely touch. The farm is beautiful, peaceful and great for those who just want to relax as it is really off the beaten track. Having said that though, there are lots of leaflets in the barn that can give you ideas of things to do and walks to go on whilst you’re there. We enjoyed Adrenalin Quarry, cream teas in Newquay and a walk up St Michael’s Mount! The barn itself is modern and spacious with everything you could want during your stay! It was really homely and comfortable. We also loved the table tennis table in the games room! Olivia has thought of everything and we hope to return in the future.
Dominique B says “Wonderful stay. The property is beautiful with lots to do” September ’18
We enjoyed the BBQ area and free wood onsite, the hot tub was a definite highlight and the tennis courts were lots of fun. The games room and access to wellington boots helped us when we went for a hike in the forest and down by the beach. The beds were comfortable and all had lots of pillows and duvets. 2 bathrooms was good for six people and the kitchen is kitted out with everything we needed. The cellphone connection is good as well as having the wifi, so although you feel off the grid and able to relax, if you do need reception, you can get it (as non outdoor people we got a bit lost on our walk, so it was good to be able to Google map our location). It was a lovely 4 days. Olivia left some lovely thoughtful gifts for us on arrival, freshly squeezed apple juice, fresh eggs, some fresh milk and some fruit. Thanks Olivia, we had a blast.
Rachael M says “the beds are extremely comfortable, we did not want to leave” August ’18
A beautiful barn in a wonderful setting. We stayed at the barn for 3 nights and had the most amazing break, the owners were very helpful and on hand if needed but without being intrusive and the barn itself and setting was just beautiful, the barn is immaculate and beautifully decorated with modern facilities, it is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, the beds are extremely comfortable, we did not want to leave! We would definitely stay again and again!
Owen C says “Everything was fantastic. Thanks very much, we had a brilliant stay. I particularly loved the bathroom which had a very high-standard finish.” August ’18
A really beautiful barn conversion with a rustic country home feel, though all the facilities were of a very high standard. Expense has not been spared. The location is remote and wonderfully quiet but there’s a great many places to visit within a 40 minute drive.
Jessica F says “Orchard Cottage is absolutely beautiful” August ’18
It was very clean and had everything you need. The area is stunning and it is close enough to local attractions. The hot tub was definitely a bonus!

“A lovely stay. The cottage was beautiful and the hot tub was an amazing addition! A really good place to visit with a baby – Olivia sent me a list of baby items I could borrow which was so useful. A lovely holiday.
Burnadette P said “The house had everything we could possibly want and need. Lovely relaxing weekend” August 2018
We had a great weekend at the Cottage, the surrounding farm was just lovely with all the animals and we loved relaxing in the hot tub every evening.
Sue F said “Lovely cottage, hot tub a real treat, and very friendly host” August 2018
Location easy to find and lanes are not too narrow to navigate. Kids had a lovely week in the cottage and it’s a very relaxing place to stay.
Ollie B said “Cosy is an understatement for this property. The bed is incredibly comfy” August 2018
More than recommend for a couple! Olivia could not have been more helpful with information about the surrounding area and left us a nice bottle of apple juice made from the farm itself. And a bag of amazing rum and raisin fudge. Had everything that was needed in there. And the bed is incredibly comfy! You will not want to get put of the shower once you get in it as well. Highly recommend this place.

Jacqui S said “It was the perfect base from which to explore South Cornwall and nearby Devon.” August 2018
My husband and I had a lovely relaxing week staying in Orchard Cottage. It was immaculate throughout; the welcome basket was excellent, packed with local goodies! It was so peaceful and we enjoyed walks along the salt marsh and along the beach – the wellies available to borrow were a godsend! We enjoyed our duck neighbours and visits from the beautiful golden retriever too.
Samar S said “A perfect place for families with young kids. ” July 2018
No need to leave – lots of walks out the door. Fantastic play areas all around the farm. The indoor space was great for family time. We will be back!
Rebecca S said “A spectacular place to stay.” July 2018
Lower Marsh Farm has everything you need from exploring to a pamper day. We couldn’t have wanted for anymore. Olivia left us to explore and enjoy our time but was just at the end of the phone or across the yard if we needed anything. We went with friends which consisted of four adults, a 7 and 8 year old, a 13 year old and a dog and we all had the most amazing time from hours in the hot tub to bridle paths that lead you straight to the River Tamar. A wonderful time was had by all.
Jonathan T said “Perfect stay and perfect place to unwind.” July 2018
“A wonderful isolated cottage. Close enough to explore but far away enough to relax and unwind. A wonderful secluded hot tub and lovely garden with a BBQ ready to go! Nice cosy cottage with all the amenities required Olivia was on hand if needed but not over bearing or in the way.
Suzanne H said “Well what a gem of a place. ” July 2018
Perfect for families and dogs. Exactly as advertised and lovely touches too with fresh milk, apple juice and fudge as well as fresh flowers. Just perfect.

Danuta L said “an idyllic place, perfect for my grandchildren” July 2018
We stayed at the barn…..an idyllic place, perfect for my grandchildren…..open space, quiet, with a playground for the children…..they love the ducks and the peacocks! The owners are really helpful and do all they can to ensure your stay is perfect….they took an emergency call for me and kindly helped me sort it out. Lovely basket of goodies welcoming us…..they also received our shopping and put away things that needed to be refrigerated….. Book and go!
Adam B said “Thank you once again, awesome as last time” July 2018
It’s a little out the way but so worth the trip, walk down to the estuary and take a trip to eat at the “who’d have thought it inn”. Also enjoy the garden, we loved the entertaining night flights of the bats.
Kim-Roberta S said “Beautiful location and stunning accommodation. “July 2018
Olivia and Ed just lovely and warm friendly staff. Farm animals were adorable and the local wildlife charming. Thank you Olivia and Ed we hope to return. Highly recommended.

Thank you for a brilliant restful stay, we loved Skye and the farm animals and wouldn’t hesitate to return in the future.
Tom C said “Well dressed property, very quiet and relaxing area.” June 2018
We stayed 3 night and there was 6 of us. House was plenty big enough. We had a bbq each night and relaxed with the hot tub whilst watching the stars. Games room and tennis court was nice if you didn’t fancy driving anywhere
Christian S said “Had a family birthday celebration here. We all had the most amazing time.” June 2018
It was absolutely perfect for our needs – ideal whether you are 10 or 75! Everyone loved it – the upstairs space is fantastic and the idyllic setting, the tennis court, the games room, the animals, the wood, the walks and everything were brilliant. We felt welcomed and totally at ease from the first minute!
Claire H said “What a wonderful week we had. “ June 2018
Enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. Had everything we needed, the tennis court and games room was a hit with my daughter. Our dog Alfie had a great time here and didn’t want to leave. The cottage was just right for the 3 of us with the hot tub a nice addition. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and was very much enjoyed. Look forward to revisiting very soon!
Madeline L said “Lovely location, very comfortable, well appointed property.” May 2018
We were made very welcome and had easy access to the farm and surrounding countryside. Would love to return and explore more! Thanks for a lovely stay!
Magda S said “Lovely place with lots to do” May 2018
The barn is very spacious and comfortable for 2 families. Beds and linen is top quality. The owners were friendly and helpful, they offloaded our on-line food delivery before our arrival making our arrival effortless. There was also freebies of eggs, milk, juice and fudge which was a nice touch. There is plenty to do around the farm, with a tennis court to play sports, basketball hoop, walking around grounds and the friendly animals kept our kids entertained. The 2 peacocks, ducks, chicken and a golden retriever all got named by our kids. The playroom is awesome on a rainy day you can play table tennis and there are some toys for small kids.
Ellie SJ said “Thank you for you kind touches. It made our friends mini moon.” May 2018
Olivia responded quickly and was able to provide support and information before arrival. We booked this as a mini moon for friends and they loved the peaceful setting and kind touches.

Denise B said…“The barn is fabulous.” March 2018
We have had a long weekend at Kingfisher Barn to celebrate my mother’s 80th birthday. The barn is fabulous. The hospitality and information about the Barn and locality was superb. The beds were so comfortable and the upstairs was large enough for the 3 families to get together. We had a wonderful time.
Tracy E said…“Perfect host, perfect location.” March 2018
Clean and welcoming stay for a weekend away. Use of the hot tub really added another layer of relaxation to our break. Lots of information about the local area was really helpful. Such a peaceful location. Would definitely recommend.
Clare B said…“Had a lovely stay at Kingfisher Barn, the place was a great size and perfect for a large family or a friends gathering.” January 2018
We particularly liked the use of the games room and hot tub, which we easily spent a couple of hours chilling in both. I booked afternoon tea for my partners birthday and he loved it, perfect touch on arrival to the Barn for a small charge. Also enjoyed a stroll (although muddy) around the farm being greeted by highland cattle and then on to a beautiful shingle beach, with a great view of the Tamar Bridge. Thank you for hosting us and if we are back in the area we would definitely stay again.
