“Perfect family holiday home with great hospitality”
Reviewed 18 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a brilliant holiday at the Moohey - it is ideal for exploring this quiet and lovely area of Cornwall, which was new territory for us. We also found we wanted to just spend time in the beautiful barn and everyone was keen to get back each day. It had everything we needed, is immaculately kept, a fantastic space for the family and so peaceful and relaxing both inside and in the garden. Mary and Pat have created a really special place and all the extra touches such as the fresh eggs and provisions, flowers on the table, tips on where to visit and hospitality during the week were much appreciated and made it all the more sad to leave. Although we had our privacy, the football matches with the boys were epic - now part of family legend - and the fresh crab was a memorable supper following a tutorial in how to prepare it! Would recommend to anyone.

Liked best: Fantastic conversion, beautifully clean and spacious with everything we needed, in superb location
Liked least: The long, very steep hill down to the village (barely driveable) meant we didn't get down there as much as we might have liked but tended to drive out elsewhere.

“Absolutely Fabulous !!!”
Reviewed 31 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Stayed for a week with friends and two young children, was delighted with the accomodation which was fantastic! Lots of space in the large building which has been beautifully renovated. The property had everything we needed and was a great base very near the coast a 5 minute walk away and good local pubs. Would stay again and highly recommend to friends and family. The hosts were very friendly, and we had total privacy the entire stay, with peace of mind that they were nearby if needed. Great garden for children to run around in, and fabulous fresh free range eggs, what more could you ask for !!

“The Moohey is great”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Lovely Easter stay at the Moohey which is a converted dairy near the seaside villages of Downderry and Seaton. The owners are extremely accommodating, genuine and helpful. Welcome pack of bread, cake butter, milk, flowers was appreciated. Cottage accommodation is spacious and well laid out - we stayed here as a family with older 'Children' and we never felt on top of each other. The Moohey is a proper home, not just a 'house', i.e. pictures on the walls, comfy sofas, nice big dining table, well equipped kitchen, books and DVDs, log burning stove, comfortable beds. Plenty to do and places to visit in the local area. Close to coastal paths and rural walks.

“A Gem of a place”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Fantastic barn in an excellent location in this lovely part of South East Cornwall. Accommodation was well equipped and comfortable.
So much to see and do, Plymouth is a great place to visit along with the villages of Cawsand & Kingsand. Talland and Portwrinkle has a great little cafe with nearby Looe and Polperro to visit.
The south west coast path is nearby for walking and running. Mary & Pat were excellent hosts.

“Excellent stay in a beautiful spot”
Reviewed 27 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Moohey is a great property in a great spot and a perfect getaway. You do need a car to get to it but there is easy access by road to all the amenities of the local area which are many. The owners are extremely helpful with tips of things to do and see and are very flexible with regard to arrival times, pets etc. I would highly recommend the property especially for families.
