Set on a working farm, this fantastic and spacious property is just ten minutes from the Tamar Lakes and boasts countryside views, a private hot tub and games room.

Set in 300 acres of farmland, this six-bed property gives 14 people and two dogs the chance to live out halcyon dreams together, less than 4 miles from Tamar Lakes and 8 miles from the coast. Winter retreat and summer haven, the beautiful Cornish landscape surrounding this large self-catering home transform with the seasons and provide a year-round activity for nature-lovers and walkers alike. Upon your rosy-cheeked return, gather together inside to continue the fun. Adopting a stylish contemporary design and equipped with plush furnishings, mod-cons and home comforts aplenty, this property has lashings of multi-generational appeal.

Following the sweeping drive, the presence of ample off-road parking makes your arrival as smooth as possible. Grab your bags and head inside; as soon as you enter the property you are met with a sensation of total warmth and relaxation in the stunning entrance hall, overlooked by a split staircase and unique antler chandelier. From here, peel off and venture into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Flaunting sleek modern style softened with sumptuous furnishings, rough-luxe features and lots of natural light, it offers space, tranquillity and comfort in abundance. The well-equipped kitchen has everything you could need for family meals, whilst the adjoining dining and lounge areas, centred around a raised, double-sided wood burner, are comfortable arenas for sharing plates, drinks and anecdotes. On sunny days, branch out into the 300 acres of open farmland and play frisbee in the enclosed garden, before hopping into the hot tub for a bubbling soak. When the weather turns less pleasant, the property provides hours of entertainment in the form of the games room featuring a pool table and table tennis; a perfect haunt for children and teens. While the hours away chatting and playing, and when you have finally exhausted your energy, make tracks towards bed. Home to six bedrooms, including four with en-suites, everyone can look forward to somewhere comfortable for a blissfully uninterrupted night's sleep.

Perfect venue to celebrate my 60th birthday with family. We were greeted by Caroline as arranged who made us feel very welcome. The house exceeded my expectations even though it looks amazing in the pictures. The ground floor bedroom with a wet room was perfect for my elderly parents, and very soundproof from the living area.

Very rural and peaceful (other than the cows at milking time). Easy access to surfing beaches, but sadly Tamar Lakes were closed during our visit. We were surprised that there was no cleaning in the middle of our two week stay.

Lympscott Barn was everything we could have dreamed of. The owners were welcoming, friendly and helpful. The barn was well equipped for the 13 members of our family who were with us - ranging from 81 down to 12. We loved Sandymouth Beach 20 minutes drive away and enjoyed walking on the coast path. The games room, lawn area for badminton cricket etcRead more and the hot tub were all perfect. I highly recommend this property. Hide

We booked the barn for our whole family following a cancellation the year before due to Covid. It's the first time we've ever all stayed together and it was very special.

Nicely constructed barn conversion at the heart of a working diary farm. Rural isolation. Owners on site and always helpful and friendly, offering the children a chance to see the cows being milked in the dairy. The main accommodation is light, spacious and nicely furnished. 6 bedrooms, of which 4 en-suite. The bedrooms are quite small, and we founRead mored the mattresses too soft. The hot tub is fine, and the separate games room is well equipped. Works well for 8-10, but tight for a max of 14. Hide
