Higher Pempwell Barn is an immaculate and comfortable self-catering holiday cottage situated in an idyllic hamlet on the edge of the stunning Tamar Valley in Cornwall. The River Tamar is one of the most beautiful rivers in Britain, marking the boundary between Devon and Cornwall. Flanked by ancient woodland along lengthy stretches, the river also provides rare habitat for wildlife and is one of the UK's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This peaceful location is ideal both for those after a quiet retreat, and those seeking adventure.
The luxury Grade II listed granite and slate holiday barn has been converted to a very high specification and offers modern accommodation in the heart of the Cornish countryside. Perfect for either a romantic break for two, a family holiday or indeed four adults, the accommodation is generous, light and airy. A separate games room (please note that access to this is across a small, very quiet road) for guests' exclusive use provides table tennis and table football tables and a wide range of children's toys and games. Outside is a parking area and small garden overlooking open fields with a lawn, sitting area and barbecue.
