Totally off the beaten track, hidden away on the outskirts of Bodmin Moor, just a few miles from the pretty little village of Blisland, and 10 miles from the fabulous north and south coast. Wallhouse Barn is a fantastic holiday home for families or couples seeking complete peace and quiet, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. Accessed by a little private road across stunning open moorland, the stone barn stands detached in the grounds of the owner’s moorland small holding.
With a quirky design and interior this barn is a barn with a difference. Natural granite steps lead from the living room to the bedroom with ornate iron work balustrades, cosy double bedroom with mezzanine, a modern bathroom and kitchen with slate flooring. The main feature of the house is the spacious living/dining room, which is light, bright and airy with vaulted ceiling and large glass doors opening onto a private decked patio garden overlooking a little paddock. Perfect for lazy summer days.
You can walk directly onto the open moorland from the property and experience the stunning views, ruggedness, nature and birdlife surrounding you, or being located between the North and South Coast of Cornwall you can explore the many varied attractions for all ages that Cornwall has to offer. Suitable for all ages of guests throughout the year, perfect for summer holidays or spring and autumn getaways. Shops, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
We loved it at wallbarn, my only comments would be the sofas have had it and need replacing and the polycarbonate roof on the lounge is very noisy when it’s raining and can be chilly at night but they do provide heating. Other than that we had a lovely stay and so very quiet. Perfect for us. Local amenities aren’t close but that’s the beauty of this cottage and why we chose it. No WiFi in our cottage the booking said it did have WiFi but the paperwork in cottage said it was flakey.
Nice quiet setting with loads of countryside around you for people who like to walk. Cottage was nice we liked the different levels it had. Would recommend staying there.
Had a fantastic relaxing time at Wallhouse Barn. Definitely need a car as remote location, which if you are looking for peace and quiet it has it in abundance. The Moor is easily accessible for long or short walks. Owner is lovely and on hand if needed offering advice for amenities and places to explore off the beaten track, and also which beaches are dog friendly. Would definitely visit again.
Wallhouse Barn was very nice and in a lovely location, very quiet area on the moorland, had slight difficulty finding as well off the road. Although we had a lovely holiday, we did have difficulty with the sleeping arrangements as one downstairs and one upstairs, and between the 2 rooms there was a stone staircase to lounge and more stairs down to other bedroom and bathroom. I would not recommend for families with young children, disabled or elderly people as different levels could cause a problem. The local town of Bodmin was close and easy to reach and beaches were within 30 minute journey times. The holiday let was adequate for our needs, but felt that it could of been better cleaned as lots of cobwebs, things left under the bed from previous visitors, freezer had old food from previous visitors and also we unfortunately found a dead field mouse on the attic floor on the day of arrival, so was not overly impressed with cleanliness. You also have to hope you do not get rain as with the poly-carbonated roof, it was very loud and could not sleep properly.
Lovely cottage in the middle of no where. Nice and secluded and quiet. Just what we wanted for a relaxing break. Best to stock up on groceries before you get there because there are virtually no shops nearby, hence the low score.
One of the best places I have stayed in Cornwall. Middle of no where but with roads to everywhere. So central. comfy spacious clean fun quirky. Owners were helpful & friendly you cant ask for more. Will definitely be recommending to others and going again ourselves
Our stay November, 2019
