No. Only reason for this would be because of the issues with the ensuite in the rooms.it would be very difficult to share the house with other family members with one bathroom. If bathrooms up dated would recommend.

A beautiful converted grain store/ animal housing. The bedrooms are all spacious, more storage and coat hangers than we could fill - which is a first for us! Lots of room to spread out, a sofa each! My favourite room was the quiet lounge downstairs - so peaceful and sunny. The hot tub was an added bonus which was used every day. The cottage is veryRead more well equipped although it could benefit from a new oven - not that we used it often. There are lots of nice pubs nearby to try. Hide

The hosts were lovely and the cottage is spacious, comfortable and well equipped, and we had a fantastic holiday there. However the appliances badly need replacing, the fridge wasn't cold enough and the oven takes ages. The kids play area is great but is accessed via the busy road so you have to go with them, which wasn't a problem as there's a picRead morenic table there too. We didn't use the patio area as much as we thought we would as it's concrete and we had toddlers with us. Hide

Lovely, clean, comfortable, spacious and still cosy cottage in the Cornish countryside. Although it was on a working farm you still were away from it all and yet the owners around if needed. The hot tub was great. Plenty of room for both our families to enjoy over half term. We were able to enjoy Crackington Haven, Bude and Boscastle avoiding the rRead moreain and when it did come in we were able to batten down the hatches, get that wood burner going and enjoy a glass of wine and a book.

Shepherds Rest is in in a quiet village not far from the busier town of Launceston. It is a roomy and comfortable house which affords a good central location for getting out and about in Cornwall. We were 7 in number, which meant there was ample room to spread out when just relaxing in the evening. We loved the hot tub and the kids enjoyed the gameRead mores room. All in all, a very satisfactory place in which to spend a Cornish holiday. Hide

The property was in a lovely location at the end of a small village, but access was through very small country lanes with few overtaking places not good if you don't like country driving.
