Lympscott Barn - Kilkhampton, Cornwall Review

For my dads 60th birthday a few years ago we decided to surprise him by spending the weekend somewhere as a family. We found an amazing property through @holidaycottages.co.uk called Lympscott Barn, Kilkhampton. A fantastic barn conversion that sleeps unto 14 people, has a hot tub and of course is dog friendly! Since then we have visited this property a further two times. The most recent being the last weekend of February 2018.

Always get excited to return here

Based on a working dairy farm, Lympscott Barn is set in a rural location - perfect! The barn boasts an impressive hallway that leads into an open plan kitchen/dining/living room with a wood burner, which was great for our large family gathering. There are 6 bedrooms, 4 with ensuite and two that share a main bathroom. There is even a downstairs bedroom which is perfect for family members that may not be able to make it upstairs (or for anyone who wants easy access to the hot tub!).

Lympscott Barn is ideal for dogs. All you have to do is walk straight out of the door and follow the signs for Tamar Lakes. The walk to the lakes doesn’t involve any roads so you are safe to let your dog/s roam freely and relax! The circular route around the first lake is around 5km but do not fear (!) from March onwards there is a cafe you can stop at halfway round for a nice cup of coffee.
This is a beautiful walk and there is lots of wildlife to be seen at the lake.

On Sunday’s you can enjoy a carvery at the Bradworthy Inn, like we did. It is only a 5 minute drive from the house. The meal was such great value at £8.95 and it was delicious. Dennis was a happy boy to because he could join us. It may be a good idea to ring up and book because dogs are only allowed in the bar area. They are also open every other day with their normal menu.

We always feel sad when our time is up at Lympscott Barn but we come away with great memories and sometimes nearly the farm dog! There is no better feeling than being able to take your dog with you. I am so thankful to all the dog friendly places out there.

This barn conversion is perfect for big family gatherings and I highly recommend it.
