Meadow Barn never fails to provide a relaxing and very enjoyable holiday. It is tastefully furnished, beautifully equipped and Liz the owner provides wonderful welcoming gifts and fresh flowers. It is also cleaned to a very high standard. It is located in a quiet rural setting with close access to the coast. This was our 5th visit and we will be returning!

Mr Stonehouse May 2023
Its so relaxing. The peace & quiet is so good - after a number of stays we still don't know how a working farm can be so quiet & relaxing. Its very, very well equipped - we always say that if you question if the cottage has a ....., well, yes it will have!
Mrs Stokes April 2023
Meadow Barn is a real gem, immediately you open the door you are met with a real welcoming feeling, all the little touches provided by Liz really hit the spot after a long journey. We found it so accessible for Bude, Boscastle, Tintagel (visit to the castle a real MUST) and Port Isaac and many other places within good travelling distance. We will definitely return to this magical little barn with its lovely little garden and so much wildlife on your doorstep. Well done Liz & Jon.

Meadow Barn is a superb place for a holiday. This was our 4th visit and as usual we loved it. It is wonderfully and quietly located close to the coast in an attractive rural location. It is spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Liz is a very generous host providing lovely welcome gifts and fresh flowers.

Meadow Barn was just perfect for our stay in Cornwall. The little cottage was cosy, warm, and very well equipped with absolutely everything you might need. There was always plenty of hot water for either a bath or shower with fluffy towels and robes supplied. An information folder detailing places of interest, restaurants, beaches, walks, local information etc was also supplied and this proved very useful - the welcome bottle of wine, chocolate and cake was a nice touch and very well received. All in all, a lovely place to stay and one which I can thoroughly recommend!
Mr Fox September 2022
Excellent in every way. Would not hesitate to book again and recommend
Mr Hubbard August 2022
Meadow Barn is a great little hideaway conveniently located for the best that North Cornwall has to offer. The owners are very accommodating and the cottage quite comfortable. The guest book shows many people return to the property and we will certainly do so if we holiday again in the area.
Miss Sharp June 2022
Access to the property is along narrow winding high-banked Cornish roads - not for the faint-hearted! The access drive is adequate but uneven and the parking turning area tight. Generous gifts on arrival. Beautiful old barn conversion finished to a very high standard with quality furnishings (two seater settee could have been improved). Limited natural light inside but cosy atmosphere with log burner and logs provided (not used). The kitchen appliances were modern and very clean and there was every utensil you could want. Hosts Jon and Liz seemed relaxed, were friendly and on hand to our only request for help within minutes, reassuringly present in the background. Idyllic, rustic, rural location with well maintained farm and woodland walks. Easy access to stunning cliff walks and beautiful beaches. We hope to return.
Mr Tomlinson June 2022
Very enjoyable stay everything you require is provided and of high quality. The cottage is very rural and on a working farm, very relaxing and the owners are very pleasant and can’t do enough for you but not intrusive. A cut path guides you along for a stroll around the farm with a nice pond with seating to sit and unwind. Would certainly recommend.
Mr Gwilliam November 2021
This break was booked at short notice because we knew that as it was November the heating and woodburner would make our evenings at Meadow Barn cosy and comfortable. We were not disappointed!
Ms Russell October 2021
Meadow Cottage is a real gem. Quiet and secluded. It is well-equipped, immaculate and cosy. Liz and Jon are perfect hosts. Super location for visiting popular coastal villages.
Mr Gwilliam September 2021
A relaxing rural retreat in a truly peaceful location. A tasteful gem.
Mr Baylis September 2021
A beautiful cottage rebuilt as a barn conversion, from virtually nothing, to a very high standard. It was exceptionally clean and well appointed, the kitchen providing all the necessary equipment. We had a wonderful week exploring the surrounding countryside and local beaches on foot and using our ebikes. We conquered many 'cardiac hills' especially at Millook Haven with its famous zig-zag geological strata. Duckpool, North of Bude is another quiet hidden gem with its National Trust car park. Full days out with a picnic at Crackington Haven, Widemouth Beach and Boscastle, with its walk up to the white coast guard lookout point, is a must. Thankyou Jon and Liz for your welcome of wine and goodies. We had a fabulous week and would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends.
Ms Sach September 2021
Meadow barn is probably the best equipped cottage I’ve stayed in, Liz has thought of everything you might need . The welcoming goodies were much appreciated and the cut flowers a very nice touch .
Mr Bevan August 2021
Meadow Barn is ideally located a few miles from the A39 along single track roads, making it ideal for visiting the small towns, havens and attractions along the coast, we didn't mange them all within the week we stayed which was unfortunate. The property was immaculate and every modern convenience catered for, thank you for leaving a welcome hamper on our arrival, it was very much appreciated. There are walks through the fields and farmland on the property and the owners are unobtrusive just popping by once to make sure everything was satisfactory and not to hesitate to call them if we needed anything. Your privacy is very much respected. I would certainly recommend this property to for relaxation and as a base to discover the area. The bed is probably the comfortable I have ever slept in, on any property which we have ever visited which quite delayed our planned early morning starts.
Ms Harrison August 2021
Meadow Barn is a beautiful cottage in a beautiful location.
It is furnished to a very high standard and is spotlessly clean.
Liz and Jon make you feel very welcome - some really nice personal touches with a tasty welcome pack and very pretty flower arrangements.
They responded quickly to a query we had about the internet and then left us alone. So we had the reassurance of them being next door but not the intrusiveness that could have come with it. Just perfect!
Oh and they also have a friendly cat.
We would really recommend this cottage to any couples wanting a peaceful retreat.
Ms Gould July 2021
Meadow Barn was a beautiful tranquil staycation. We will absolutely recommend and will definitely go back.
Ms Young July 2021
Fabulous, spacious very clean and well equipped holiday home in a very peaceful location. We were very happy with our booking. Excellent shower and the kitchen equipment was all very good too.
Mr Green June 2021
A truly lovely setting with farm animals around and surrounded by the fabulous gardens. Liz and Jon work very hard to make your visit special. The gardens are wonderful and the cottage affords great privacy and tranquility. The general ambience is warm and homely with everything that you could need supplied.
Mrs Wells May 2021

Mrs Deeley August 2020
A beautifully furnished, secluded retreat! Perfect escape to ‘stop the world & get off” - Thank you for everything; attention to detail was superb xx
Mrs Farr August 2020
This little property is superb. It is beautifully presented, private and cosy. It contains everything you could possibly need for a relaxing week away.
Mr Larson July 2020
Meadow Barn is a delightful retreat, so glad we came across this absolute gem by pure good luck. Welcoming, clean, fantastically equipped with everything you could need, and so peaceful. The whole cottage is inviting and cosy, the furnishings are so comfy. Excellent bathroom, superb shower, nice deep bath, complete with big fluffy towels and robes (which we did not need as the weather was so hot!). The farm is so quiet and due to that and the king size bed we were oversleeping nearly every morning! Location was great away from all the bustle but only a short drive to all the best places that North Cornwall has to offer. The cottage has wi-fi -- the cornish style, where it sometimes does things 'dreckly' -- but we didn't care as we were too busy out and about or chillin' on the sofa on an evening or walking round Jon & Liz's farmland walk complete with wood and pond watching the wildlife. The owner's are so lovely, unobtrusive, there if needed and I really enjoyed being shown round Jon's old vehicle's (I will be returning for my turn driving the old tractor! lol). Thank you, John & Karren

We're really sorry that the WiFi passcodes weren't left in the cottage on this occasion. The property does offer a WiFi facility but the owners confirmed that the codes had been overlooked on this occasion - they'll replace them immediately and we're really sorry for any inconvenience caused. Hopefully the contact numbers provided would have offered some additional help should they have been required. Bryony, Customer Services
Mrs Kelland September 2019
A great holiday with plenty of games, books and films to fill up on days to inclement to go out. (They do happen it is after all Cornwall).
Mr Stonehouse May 2019
An amazing place to stay, and in such a beautiful setting. Although its a working farm, its probably the quietest farm I've ever been on! The owners are friendly, helpful, but are not under your feet - so you have a really relaxed stay. The cottage is equipped to the highest standards, and the 'welcome pack' on arrival is a lovely touch. The information pack about local facilities is also really helpful.
