Ms Hurst October 2020
Welltown Barn is a beautiful, peaceful retreat in the wild landscape of Bodmin Moor. With stunning views from the bedrooms, this spacious cottage is well equipped for self catering, and we felt very at home and relaxed for a whole weeks stay. We particularly liked that the cottage had two bathrooms, one with a big roll top bath and one with a shower. We really loved the hot tub outdoors, even on a rainy November evening it was amazing to look up at the trees and see the wild moorland while being in luxury hot bubbles! On a sunny afternoon we enjoyed a cream tea on the deck outside one of the bedrooms and we even had a small fire in the fire pit and sparklers on bonfire night - the cottage was truly a home from home! The owners were on hand if needed, very helpful and friendly and respected our privacy. The area is fascinating with wildlife, forest, rivers, lakes and stone circles...and easy reach of the coast. Highly recommended!

Mrs Speight October 2019
Beautiful cottage and super central location in Cornwall. Decor and cleanliness in cottage is second to none, owners helpful and friendly. We will definitely be making a second trip.
Mr Duckworth October 2019
Beautiful cottage in a beautiful location,Stuart the owner was very welcoming and very helpful, his wife had left an amazing cream tea for our arrival.Cottage is well equipped with a hot tub with fantastic views and a lovely garden,We watched bats and tawny owls while we chilled in the hot tub.We are hopefully booking again for March.It was so relaxing laying in bed in a morning with the french windows open listening to the birds singing with not much other noise apart from the odd cow mooing.Our two spaniels were quite happy wandering round the enclosed garden but even happier out on the moor within 10 minutes walk.All in all a brilliant place to stay and relax can't wait to go again
Mrs Whittington September 2019
We had a fabulous week at Welltown Barn, with our 1 year old and a dog. The garden was secure enough for our dog which is a real bonus compared to other cottages we have stayed at. There were lots of extra touches such as a welcome cream team and bits for the baby (babygate/changing mat/high chair) which made life a lot easier.
My favourite bit was sitting in the hot tub after dark watching the bats, simply magical.
We will be back!
Ms Neufeld June 2019
We had a wonderful stay at this cozy and well furnished cottage with a warm welcome from the very nice owners. Thank you so much for the cream tea!!! The view over the garden in the morning is amazing. We enjoyed the hot tub while the dogs were exploring the garden - great time for everyone of us!
Mrs Mitchell St Joseph June 2019
Lovely cottage in an idyllic setting.
Mr Staas May 2019
Beautiful and cosy cottage. Located of the beaten track, but within easy reach of the south and north coast. We had a wonderful time.
Mrs Smith May 2019
It was wonderful to pass highland cows, ponies and sheep on our approach to the village, a great start. The cottage, grounds and views are to die for. So quiet and relaxing, especially the hot tub. You’ll also have the best nights sleep in the comfy beds. We had a great long weekend at this well equipped cottage, you will not be disappointed.

Mrs Taylor February 2019
Lovely relaxing stay with beautiful views slept amazingly 9 hours one night which is unheard of for me, lovely comfy bed and a very chilled out time great hot tub and woody our dog loved his time able to walk up onto the moor from the barn.
Mr Buss October 2018
A super relaxing week here with our dog on his first holiday. Perfect views, some much needed peace and quiet.
Miss Rudlin October 2018
Very friendly and helpful hosts & delicious cream teas waiting for us on our arrival. Stunning rural location with fantastic views from the hot tub
Miss Matthews September 2018
A perfect location to just have a relaxing break/holiday, you are made to feel so welcome by the owners who greet you, supply afternoon tea and have fresh flowers waiting for you. The cottage has everything you need for your home comforts and the hot tub looking out at the views is just amazing. I would definitely recommend Welltown Barn it is just idyllic and there are so many beautiful places in the surrounding areas that must be visited.
Miss Hallam September 2018
The cottage is lovely, the finish is perfect and all the homely touches are what made it lovely. The owners are extremely kind and helpful, we thoroughly enjoyed are stay and would happily book this cottage again.
Mr Price September 2018
Superb cottage in a stunning and serenely quiet location. 10 minute drive from the major A roads making it perfect for exploring the rest of Cornwall, whilst offering an idyllic retreat in the evenings. We really appreciated the size of rooms and kitchen which made it feel like a home from home. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend.
Mr Wicke July 2018
It was a exelent cottage to have a stay in Corwall, we are from germany and like the warmly welcome owner of the cottage. Also our dog Nelson was extremly happy about the perfekt ground. We enjoy the Whirlpool with the surrounding view over the landscape and the possibility to take our breakfast or lunch outside. There are many good targets for visiting. It was one of the best cottages we rent in the last years.
Mr Kisby June 2018
What a fantastic place! A beautiful location on Bodmin Moor - it really did feel like entering Narnia (as the sign suggests). The cottage is beautifully furnished and although it is next door to the owner’s house it felt very secluded, with a large private garden to relax in and plenty of places to walk the dog around the paddocks. The owners were very friendly and welcoming but left us to enjoy our holiday. The view from the hot tub is simply superb. We’ve stayed in several properties from classic cottages, and this is one of the best - Couldn’t think of a better place to relax for a week in the beautiful Cornish countryside. Highly recommended!
Mrs Guy June 2018
We had a lovely week in Cornwall staying in this beautiful cottage. The views are spectacular and the hot tub provided us with some much needed relaxation in the evening (first holiday with our baby)! The baby equipment we requested at the time of booking was all set-up ready for when we got there and was in a good condition (something we had been a bit aphehensive about). The bed was extremely comfy and all the facilities are well kept. Only negative was that there’s a bit of damp on the landing and a couple of bits of the garden furniture could do with being replaced-quick, easy fixes though to make this absolutely perfect. Thanks for having us and for the delicious cream tea on arrival!

Thanks so much for review of Welltown Barn - it's great hear you had such a wonderful time overall and made the most of the beautiful sights of Cornwall. Thanks for letting us know about the landing and the garden furniture - we'll forward this to the owners for their attention. Bryony, Customer Support
Mr Hutton May 2018
Beautiful location, friendly owner, perfect cottage with everything you could need. We will most definitely be returning!
Mrs Dare March 2018
We had a lovely week here, location was good for exploring, we had days out towards Padstow and the north coast beaches as well as the towns of Fowey and Looe on the south coast. The cottage was perfect for our family of 4 - I was worried it looked small in the pics but was plenty of room for us all even on wet rainy afternoons and the hot tub was a real treat. The bonus of all the farm animals on site was a nice surprise too, and the kids got to bottlefeed one of the newborn lambs too!
Mrs Horsley March 2018
Lovely cottage, very private, relaxing. Easy to get to once you know what you are doing! Would definitely stay again.
Ms Mills February 2018
A very warm welcome by the owners (and cream tea on arrival). The cottage was beautifully presented (I was taking note of bits and pieces to buy when I got home as I liked it so much). The cottage totally surpassed expectation and looked even better than the pictures on the website. The kitchen was fully stocked, warm, and surprisingly big. All modcons, from hot tub, to dishwasher, to plenty of warm white fluffy towels, and you felt totally at ease from the second you put down your bags. Honestly didn't want to leave. Absolutely beautiful cottage in a magical setting.
Mrs Wardle December 2017
A lovely welcome to this cosy cottage which we used for a quiet new years break.
Facilities were great. Parking. Hot tub and comfortable living area.
Location to explore Cornwall is fantastic.
Well worth a visit and we will be booking to go again.
Mrs Hall October 2017
We had a great family holiday at Welltown Barn, with the surrounding grounds perfect for our boys to explore and for us to walk our dog. The cottage was lovely and cosy, nestled in the countryside and the location was perfect for exploring Cornwall.
Mrs Evans September 2017
Brilliant location, beds big and comfortable, the whole experience brilliant, not a cottage to miss out on, the pictures tell there story and we will be going back to enjoy the comforts and peace next year.
Mr Volkmann June 2017
It is a lovingly designed house with a beautiful view of the Bodmin moor. From here we have completely explored cornwall. Because of the quiet it is the perfect place to relax. The beds are very comfortable. Despite the not so nice weather we could sit outside in the jacuzzi. There were fresh eggs and the owners are very nice and helpful. We would come back.
Mrs Hogsflesh June 2017
Welldown was the perfect place to totally unwind and relax. The cottage is beautifully furnished and wonderfully comfortable. The features and fittings are both modern and smart. We particularly enjoyed using the hot tub in the evenings, having a glass of wine or two and taking in the spectacular view. I would like to mention that the owners are very friendly and welcoming. Sharon even texted us on our first day and invited us to arrive at the cottage earlier if we wished which we did and it was great to find all the ingredients for a cream tea waiting for us.
Miss Waltham November 2016
Lovely cottage, great location with excellent views from the relaxing hot tub. Finished to a great standard with very good facilities. Comfortable beds, excellent morning view from the front bedroom looking out from the Juliet balcony.
Mrs Lewis September 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Cornwall and in Warleggan, the walks were wonderful despite the weather. I do not usually make adverse comments about the properties we stay in as little irritations are soon forgotten and although this cottage was lovely the week was unfortunately quite marred by the fact that we could not easily let our dogs outside to roam the garden - what a shame - we will not be returning to Welltown Barn unless the garden issue was rectified.

Thanks so much for your review of Welltown Barn, and we're so glad you enjoyed the property. We don't advertise an enclosed garden at this cottage, but if this is particularly important to you, please mention it when booking, or select the 'Enc' filter on the Web site, and we will search the database for any properties that do have an enclosed garden (although we'd never guarantee that these are escape-proof for dogs, as we know there are some real 'Houdini' characters out there!). Tanya, Customer Support
Mrs Tushingham August 2016
Absolutely fabulous little haven, tucked away in the wee village of Warleggan. The cottage owners, Sharon and Stuart, were very welcoming and a fresh batch of home made scones, clotted cream and jam were there for our arrival. A lovely touch, thank you. Although it was tempting to just stay put and enjoy the amazing views and the hot tub, we ventured out every day and explored beautiful Cornwall then enjoyed evenings at the cottage after gathering local provisions at farm shops. From the Minack Theatre in the far south to Boscastle in the north and Fowey too, to name but a few places. We highly recommend Welltown Barn, as long as it is free for when we next visit :-)
Ms Glassborrow May 2016
Our family really needed a tranquil break, Welltown provided that and much much more. Every picture tells a story and the description tells you about the place, but it cannot describe the atmosphere or stunning location , or friendliness of the family owners. It is in an idyllic quiet place, the views from every level of the tiered gardens is just stunning. The barn is warm, comfortable and easily accommodated a family of three adults and two children, and everything you need is there waiting for you. The atmospheric tranquillity is fantastic. My Son + Partner and Grandchildren changed almost overnight, as young as they are, the Grandchildren enjoyed the house and gardens immensely. Every~time 'Nanna' went down to the bottom tier garden to sip a drink, my 21 month old Grandson followed me and would stand on the bench cuddling Nanna and just gazed out yonder over the valley chatting away! As did the five year old who also loved being able to explore the whole of the grounds and it is fully enclosed, so it was safe for him to do so. The hot tub is fabulous! And there are horses too that the family own who encourage you to go and say hello to them if you want too.
Although the place is in the middle of nowhere, it is well situated and close to the A30 to travel anywhere you choose to go. I would not only recommend this place to family and friends, I already have and definitely intend to be a regular visitor. The couple that own Welltown Barn are a lovely couple and so friendly, they were happy to chat away to us and answer any questions we had, from horses to home~life! I will be back
Mrs Glennsansum May 2016
The peace and quiet of the location. The hot tub is fantastic and we spent hours in it! The garden is lovely as are the decking areas and outdoor furniture. The Owner was very friendly and helpful but also left us alone to enjoy our holiday.
Miss Clarke April 2016
Welltown Barn is a modernised, comfortable, delightfully rural cottage with fantastic views and hot tub. Great for a relaxing stay and for touring this part of Cornwall. We had a lovely stay.
Mr Brear September 2015
We walked in and were immediately impressed by the standard of finish, equipment and cleanliness. If Carlsberg did cottages ... The cottage has pleasantly private gardens, perhaps a little too uneven for elderly people, and the hot tub is a lovely feature. We were only a couple but even for four the cottage would be much more spacious than many we've used. It felt light and homely. Access is via the stableyard, in a corner of which we parked - little girls would love the horses! The position is very quiet, on the edge of a tiny village, but it is surprisingly accessible - just a few miles from the main A30, and with Bodmin close by too.
Mrs Kirk September 2015
A beautiful cottage in a lovely area of Cornwall. Will book again!
Mrs Lang August 2015
A lovely Cottage with extremely comfortable beds. A large and peaceful garden for our dog and us with wonderful seats to enjoy best views into great surroundings. Wonderful hot tub. We´re sure, we´ll return for another holiday!
