A fabulous alternative to a cottage, this beautiful barge set in an oasis of green, was such a wonderful place to base ourselves for Our Cornish holiday. Great location for easy journeys to main attractions. We loved the wonderful coves and great pubs and restaurants nearby. Even though the weather was very damp at times, the barge was a very relaxing chilled out space in which to spend time , which we absolutely loved.

We had an excellent stay at the barge. It is a beautiful location with everything you can ever need during your holiday. Fire pit with BBQ for lovely diners. Our kids loved being outdoors and playing on the grass. And the hosts are awesome and super friendly. We truly loved our stay at the Mystery 2.

Excellent accomodation with everything we needed. Really enjoyed the excitement of the tidal river and canal! Only downsides were the road behind the fence, which was a bit noisy at times, and the location - we found we needed to drive everywhere. This did however mean that we explored more of South Cornwall than ever before. So it could be viewed as a positive :) Owners and neighbour very friendly, interesting people. Loved meeting them!

Our stay at Mistery 2 was absolutely wonderful. It is nestled into the landscape and feels very special. It is better equipped than most other bricks and mortar holiday homes we've stayed in. The garden and fire outside are a real highlight, and there is unique artwork in every nook and cranny both inside and out. We hope to return!

Had a fantastic and unique stay at Mistery 2. The boat was super clean and beautifully decorated, the firepit was very atmospheric and we really enjoyed our stay. Well located for exploring the pretty and interesting local area. Would recommend and stay again.

Unique property set in lovely outdoor space with very friendly and hospitable welcome.

A wonderful place to stay. Lucky to find a holiday stay so good.

The kitchen was gloriously well-supplied. Decent pans, serving dishes, sharp knives and not a glass chopping board in sight!

Small touches, like the shelves in the shower, enough power sockets, torches by the beds, decent hanging space, the bluetooth speakers, double glazing and greenery shielding from the road - just all the little things that made it feel like someone had thought of all those small holiday home irritations and solved them.

Loved the gentle rise and fall of the boat on the tide.

Gorgeous garden, comfy beds, incredibly helpful hosts, all fabulous! Love, love, love this fairytale nook!

This is an absolutely stunning place to stay. The owners have thought of every little detail, but it's not just well equipped and perfectly located for exploring Cornwall, the place itself is a work of art. Can't recommend enough!

A very warrm welcome from our hosts, Loz and Mark, who gave a helpful introduction to Mistery 2. Mistery 2 offers all you need for a great stay - beautiful BBQ and camp fire, cozy woodburner, comfy beds and fab showers. There's lots to do and see in the area - don't miss lunch/dinner at the Pandora Inn. Thank you Loz and Mark!

Mistery 2 is a stylish and unusual stay in a beautiful part of Cornwall, perfect for adventurers. The boat is very comfortable and ideal for evenings around the fire pit watching for bats and stargazing and breakfast in the morning sun. We loved the local walks and wildlife, including the ramble to the local pub.
