Mrs KINGSFORD June 2023
Accommodation was roomy and well furnished. Beds comfy, so a good nights sleep. Location ideal for Falmouth, Mylor and A routes to other parts of Cornwall, yet no traffic noise. Garden a bit neglected which may be important if you intend to have BBQ etc.
Ms Pavitt June 2023
Comfortable, spacious and well equipped barn. Good location for gardens, beaches and amenities quite close.
We were disappointd by the garden and outside space. When we were there it only had a small outside sitting area and most of the grass was too long for family games. The outside of the barn also needed tidying up as discarded equipment was a hazard for our pre-school grandson.

Beautiful cottage in a wonderfully tranquil setting with stunning countryside views. So very spacious and perfect for large family groups to spread out a bit or all sit together in the large sitting room or kitchen. Plenty of bathroom / shower rooms. We are looking forward to returning again next year.
Mr Thorpe September 2022
We enjoyed a lovely family holiday for three generations. Great location, fabulous accommodation and will certainly be returning again

Mrs King August 2022
A beautiful cottage in an ideal location for visiting different parts of Cornwall.
Mrs Sogliuzzo July 2022
A large and comfortable barn with everything you could possibly need for a group. The place was spotless and Mary and her grandson checked in on us to make sure we had everything we needed. Nothing was too much trouble. Mary was delightful, determined that we should have a wonderful time and made sure we had information about the surrounding area and everything we needed. The surroundings are lovely, very peaceful and you feel remote but Mylor Bridge is just down the road and you are only a couple of miles from Falmouth. We hope to come back again!
Ms Johnston May 2022
The cream tea on arrival was a welcome sight after a long drive. There was plenty of space for all of us at Dowstall Barn, and the layout is excellent. The beds were extremely comfortable; everyone slept well. The showers were powerful and spacious; there was plenty of hot water. Generally very well equipped, both inside and out. The large dining table was great for meals and games. 2 sitting rooms facilitated different activities. Games and books were available too. Suitable for multi generations. Wonderful outside space too and very quiet. Lovely walks from the front door. Would highly recommend.
Mrs Johnson March 2022
We loved our stay here - it was so quiet and tranquil. The beds were comfortable and the barn was a gorgeous place to stay for our week. We loved exploring the area and Mrs Dale recommended some lovely walks which we thoroughly enjoyed. A fabulous week away for my family and a great retreat for those looking for peace and quiet.
Mrs Whittick September 2021
Lovely cottage, great for a family get together as there is plenty of room for everyone. The owner was very helpful throughout our stay, nothing was to much trouble.

Had a lovely weeks holiday at the barn- fabulous facilities and very kind owners who have thought of everything that is needed in the barn. Cream tea was a lovely welcome. It is in middle of country and you travel along a track to get to it.

This is an excellent property for family get togethers. Lovely garden for children. Our five year old could run and run and our one year old could crawl around in safety without running out of grass! Perfect.
Mr Clyne July 2018
We really enjoyed our stay - the cottage gave us the space we needed for the size of our group and was comfortably furnished and equipped. The bedrooms and bathrooms were immaculate and the owner was really welcoming.
Mrs Cook May 2018
Dowstall Barn is an excellent property. It is huge, but cosy at the same time. It is incredibly well equipped. The garden is very peaceful with lovely views. The village is within walking distance and is well served with two good shops, a great butchers and two excellent dining pubs. There are lots of things to do within the vicinity. A lovely part of Cornwall and we would love to stay again.
Mrs Cope April 2018
A very nice property, with plenty of amenities in a beautiful location.
Ms King December 2017
Dowstall barn is a beautifully converted spacious property which we all loved spending time in. The house had unexpectedly been decorated for Xmas with a lovely big tree, lights, bunting and some beautiful Xmas tapestries hand made by Mary, the owner. There was plenty of room for us to relax independently, the children to plan and for us all to come together for meals and to socialise. We loved the property, the beds were comfortable. All in all we had a wonderfully relaxing stay and would love to come back again in the summer months to explore the area more and stay once more in this amazing property.
Mrs Cole October 2017
Excellent spacious barn. Well located for South Eastern Cornwall, Lizard, Lands End, St Ives etc all within easy reach. Great WiFi and excellent local eateries.
Mrs Varley August 2017
A great place for groups or large families to visit.
Mrs Lewis May 2017

Mrs Power May 2017
A very clean and comfortable cottage
Mrs Cope April 2017
I would recommend this barn to anybody. It is in a lovely rural area with places to visit not too far away. A return visit would be much look forward to and hopefully we will!
Mr Pinches April 2017
Our second visit to Dowstall barn was just as enjoyable as the first; the accommodation and location are both excellent. Plenty to do within 30 minutes drive and lots right on the doorstep. Mylor Bridge provides for most needs and the Codfather's fish and chips are top notch.
Cornwall is lovely in the spring and this is an ideal base to explore the south and south west coasts.
Finally, a ticket to at Trebah Gardens allows 7 days of access to the gardens, coast path, private beach and children's play areas and is well worth the money. Our favourite is the koi carp pond or (oomm fish as we call them). Walk, enjoy the beach and cafe or find a quiet spot in sun or shade and read or watch the world go by, in fact I wish I was there now.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Best wishes Andy
Mr Davis October 2016
Well furnished, very comfortable accommodation and fantastic size. Fab location with easy access to lots to different place s to go and see, lots to do for all ages and tastes. Will def keep in mind when we visit Cornwall again.
Mr Bush October 2016
This is a beautiful barn conversion fitted out to everyone's needs we would love to book again in the future
Mr Owen September 2016
This cottage is very near Falmouth, which was the main reason for us choosing it, in fact the journey is only about ten minutes. Park at the station and walk down into the town. This cottage is set in an old disused farmyard, with partial views of the countryside and derelict barns and stables. There is a children's day care centre on site, so noise and traffic should be expected between 8am and 6pm.

* Update 2017 * The children's nursery is no longer operating from the neighbouring site which has now reverted to a family home. Tanya, Customer Support
Dr Westhoff August 2016
Excellent location and property. We had a wonderful holiday.
Mr Pinches April 2016
A lovely modern conversion of the former milking parlour of Dowstall farm. It is spacious, well laid out, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday.
There is lots to do either locally or a car drive away. We would love to visit again and do some of the things we did not have time to do this time.
A superb cottage that left us wanting to visit again and again.
Mrs Dennis July 2015
Recommend for a quiet relaxing holiday. Plenty of space (inside and out) for the whole family!
