Nice cottage great place to be to see Devon and Cornwall. Parking could be difficult would help if the front grassed area was reduced in size to enable you to turn your vehicle around, as you need to either reverse into cottage or reverse out due to lack of space. Cottage well equipped and very comfortable.

Having spent the past 10 years at many holiday cottages, our week at Highford Barn was one of the best. The views were amazing - donkeys, sheep, cows, fields and even the sea with so many places to visit nearby. Our hosts, Sandra and Adrian, were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area.

Perfect cottage and picturesque location and perfect for travelling by car to lots of the typical sights....the only drawback for some is that nothing/no amenities are walking distance as no safe pathways
