Owlan is located in a fantastic part of Cornwall, with easy access to the north Cornwall beaches, coast paths, harbours and villages. It is extremely clean and well equipped with some thoughtful touches making if feel like home from home. We had a really relaxing week and look forward to visiting again.

An ideal place to relax, chill out and get away from the hustle and bustle. Only a short drive to the nearest towns and beaches. Perfect location for exploring Cornwall. Owlan is well equipped, well furnished and perfect for both short and longer holidays. More than enough room for a small family. Welcoming card and scones/cream tea upon arrival to Owlan from the owner was a very nice touch and well received.

Enjoyed the Cottage/Barn, so much the first time around that we rebooked to come back a week later. Just as good the second time around.

We absolutely loved our stay at Owlan it's an amazing place to stay. You relax as soon as you enter the cottage, equipped with everything you could possible need, comfortable, clean and well looked after. I never sleep anywhere on my first night away from home, but I slept all week better than I do at home. It was so quiet, we enjoyed coffee in the morning watching the birds, squirrels and wood peckers enjoying their feast. The cottage has been well thought out by the owner colour schemes, furniture so well put together. If you are looking for somewhere central to stay in Cornwall this is the place for you. We will certainly be returning in the near future. Thank you Sarah for your lovely welcome note and cream tea.

The best cottage I have used in fifteen years in coming to Cornwall. A quiet relaxing base to explore the county. The cottage was well decorated with different themes in the bedrooms and living areas all with many fine touches by the owner. I particularly appreciated the personalised welcome note from the owner. There is a play barn at the bottom of the lane for younger children. The barn is in a natural hollow which captures the sun and shields from any wind. Safe area for children to play outside.
