Description

Nestled within the grounds of the owners’ farmhouse, this holiday apartment is located in a quiet rural location and enjoys views over Kensey Valley.

Tucked away in a quiet rural location and enjoying views over the Kensey Valley and surrounding countryside, these superb adjoining apartments (refs T44, T45 and T46) lie within the grounds of the owners’ farmhouse. Set amongst open countryside, they have been renovated to a high standard and offer inviting holiday accommodation - perfect for exploring the surrounding area. Each property has access to the garden of the main house, where there is a play area. There are also pigs and free range chickens, which children can help to feed, or collect the eggs, which are available for guests to purchase. Fronted by an attractive courtyard with a barbecue and picnic area and two paddocks that are perfect for walking the dogs, visitors will find plenty of space to relax and unwind.

The apartments offer an ideal base for touring both Devon and Cornwall, and are within easy reach of the A30. Located centrally between north and south coasts, it is not more than a 25-minute drive from a selection of good sandy beaches ideal for rock pooling, surfing and dog walking. Boscastle and Tintagel, the small sandy cove of Trebarwith Strand and Crackington Haven, as well as some of the most spectacular coastal walks in the area can be found nearby. Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor are within easy reach as are several magnificent National Trust houses and gardens. The popular Eden Project is also easily accessible.

    What an amazing week we had in Cornwall. We stay in cottages regular and 'Skyber' was the best cottage we have stayed in. We were extremely grateful for the Cornish Ground Coffee, Cornish Biscuits, Cornish Teabags, Milk, Bottle of Red Wine and the stunning Hand Tied Fresh Flowers that were left in the cottage for us from the owners. There was everything in the cottage that we required including lovely fluffy white towels and an enormous bed that was so comfortable. We had our 2 teenagers with us and they each had a comfortable bed too with curtains that seperated them off for privacy. There was a fabulous whirlpool bath which was much needed after a long tiring day exploring Cornwall. Everything in the cottage was SPOTLESS clean. Fresh eggs were available to buy every day as was meat from the farm. There was a communal 'utility' where there was a washer, tumble dryer, ironing board, iron and lots of DVD's that could be used. We had our small dog with us and there was even a 'doggie' basket with freshly laundered throws in as well as some treats. EVERYTHING in this cottage has been well thought of. It was like home from home. The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and very approachable. In Cornwall we visited lots of beautiful places including Padstow, Mousehole, Lands End, Holywell Bay (we can recommend the School of Surf there), The Eden Project (go early to avoid queues) and so much more. The beaches are fabulous for surfing and body boarding which our two kids loved. We visited The Cracking Crab in Polzeath which does amazing Fruits de Mer. Launceston has a lovely little town which has a large Co-Op and various takeaway restaurants, lots of Chinese restaurants as well as Indian's and Fish and Chip restaurants. We would most definitely recommend Skyber and would certainly return to this cottage if we were to visit Cornwall again.

    We had a wonderful short break at Skyber, which is the first floor of a beautiful converted barn located in a very tranquil setting and literally five minutes off the A30, which makes access to Cornwall and West Devon so easy. The apartment is airy, very spacious and wonderfully light, with all the amenities expected of a premier property. The hosts were most warm and welcoming, and the complimentary bottle of wine, coffee, tea and biscuits on arrival were an added bonus! The apartment easily caters for a family of four, with a really comfortable large double bed and two singles. The bathroom was well appointed with bath and shower and there was always plenty of hot water. The property was very clean and tidy and there is a wood burner in the middle of the living area, which would make the whole place feel incredibly snug in the winter. Outside there is plenty of parking, a private terrace for sundowners, and various walks across the fields to enjoy. We would definitely stay at Skyber again and I would thoroughly recommend it.

    Very smart with some lovely touches I.e tea coffee and biscuits and a bottle of wine. However would of liked soap in the toilet and a mattress protector and pillow protectors.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; I’m so sorry you were disappointed with some areas of the property. Customer feedback is very important to us, and we always do our best to make subsequent changes & improvements to our properties if possible. I am slightly puzzled about some of your comments however, as all 3 of the beds in Skyber have mattress protectors and always have done. There is also a soap dispenser on the wall of one bathroom, and a separate hand wash in the toilet. These are regularly checked and refilled, so if either of these were empty I do apologise. I am sorry you felt the need for pillow protectors. Our pillows are regularly checked and replaced, but in light of your comments I will make sure we have enough in the future.
