Birchenhayes is a wonderful cottage which has everything you need. The setting is peaceful , the quality of the cottage is exceptional and the location is perfect for exploring. The owners and house keepers should be commended on this excellent cottage. A MAZE ING!!

For those who prefer a quiet relaxing break in a very special property in a beautiful location, this is difficult to beat.

This is one of the most peaceful, beautiful properties I have ever had the pleasure to stay at in Cornwall and oozes quality throughout. It is a warm, comfortable farmhouse conversion with great views. The housekeepers live nearby so nothing is too much trouble. The upstairs lounge has a covered balcony where our dog was happy to sit and watch the numerous comical pheasants, partridges and squirrels in the generously sized garden, which allowed Meg to explore freely without escaping when she was outside on squirrel watch. There is a pond with koi and other fish, and a couple of good seating areas. and an excellent hot tub for upto 5 people. The kitchen is well-equipped and has the wow factor, as do the bedrooms which have quality furniture and those little extras we ladies need such as hair dryers and plenty of coat hangers. Lovely!

Honestly, one of the nicest properties we have had the pleasure of staying in. A beautifully peaceful environment in a luxurious home. Thank you so much.

Birchenhayes exceeded all our expectations. The spacious house has been beautifully remodelled, and sits in a marvellously tranquil valley, surrounded by woodland and fields. It’s a real hideaway but a short drive to local villages and towns. The kitchen was an absolute joy, not only huge with amazing views but also filled with everything we could have needed - by far the best we’ve rented. The hot tub was a real hit with the children. John and Bernie were fantastically warm and hospitable and most helpful, with plenty of suggestions for local activities, restaurants and walks. The fact that our dog could come with us, and was so well accommodated, made the holiday. We have returned home very well rested and most relaxed. Thank you!

What a fabulous property and location.
Mr Bentham May 2021
Where do I start with Birchenhayes? Well, it’s a most fabulous place to stay. In a really remote spot in Cornwall bordering the Tamar river, we had a great week staying at this lovely converted barn. Talk about tranquility. The hosts are so welcoming it has everything you possibly need there. Talk about spacious aswell. The champagne and a delicious Cornish cream tea to go with flowers was a lovely touch too. Outstanding scenery allied to nature to die for, we really hope to be back some time in the not too distant future! Pheasants, crows, bats and the regular farmyard favourites ie cows and sheep, this place has everything. It really has. Thank you once again for making this a holiday to remember.
Ps. Not forgetting, on leaving a prize possession af the premises, the hosts sent first class back to me the following day in the post

A peaceful and beautiful spot. The house is very well presented with excellent furnishings and fittings. The house was spotless on arrival and housekeepers always friendly and helpful.
