“Just a fine and pleasant place to stay - no more wishes open”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Gospenheale Barn in every way - such a beautiful and perfect home to stay and a real friendly welcome. We were complete happy and glad to stay there for a week. And there is a lot to see - on the one side the beautiful cornish coast and the dartmoor on the other side.

“Outstanding barn conversion with unmatched attention to detail”
Reviewed 28 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have now stayed at Gospenheale Barn three times, to enjoy the Cornish coastal scenery. Gospenheale is a delightful location, close to the main 'A-roads' for easy access both north and south, but quiet and rural. David and Bridget are very friendly, attentive and chatty, providing some very welcoming home-made scones and clotted cream after our long drive across Europe. The barn conversion is remarkable. The downstairs bedrooms and bathrooms with underfloor heating are immaculate and very comfortable. The upstairs kitchen/lounge is clean, light and airy, with every convenience one could imagine. Their efforts to demonstrate environmentally friendly tourism are exemplary. Bob the dog is a highlight with our children, streaking across the road to welcome us back at the end of the day: it feels like coming home.

“wonderfull holiday”
Reviewed 29 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I spent one week in this beautiful barn with my family.
The location is ideal to visit Cornwall and the nice North Cornwall particularly, because the barn is within a short distance from many attractions.
The village of Pipers Pool is really peacefull, but in a few minutes you can drive to Launceston, where you can find shops and supermarkets.
The barn is wonderfull, renovated with taste and attention to details. It is warm like a real home away from home; it is equipped with everything you could need.
The pictures in the website correspond to the reality....or rather the barn is even better than in photos !
The owners are really kind and friendly people, but not intrusive. We appreciated the homemade scones, milk and apple juice that we found when we arrived !
The barn has only one defect: it is too far from Italy, but we really hope to come back some day to Ghospenheale !!!
