"Lovely barn conversion"
We have just returned (yesterday) from a long weekend staying here. I had rung a couple of weeks before and spoke to David the owner about local restaurants as we were going to celebrate my boyfriend… More

"Fantastic accommodation and location, very friendly hosts ... Recommended"
Travelled with my wife and our 3 yr old boy. Skyber is the top floor of the lovely well appointed barn conversion located up approx 10 wooden steps. The accommodation is very comfortable and well appointed. We had plenty of room to spread out for the three of us. We had a fantastic stay and hope to be back.
It is well situated to visit the north coast around Bude, Padstein etc. and also to go south to Plymouth and the Eden project. Getting from Skyber down to Truro took approx 55 minutes.
The owners, Fiona and David, are very friendly and wiling to offer excellent advice of places to go. Their dogs gave a very warm welcome the times we saw them.
They also have free range chickens and we bought some eggs plus they have a small flock of sheep, highland cattle and a couple of pigs on site. There are 2 large grass paddocks, one of which was available to play ball games in/exercise dogs etc. the sheep and cattle were in the second paddock.
The directions to the accommodation are pretty good but can be supplemented by knowing the name of the "cream cottage" in the directions is Beechcroft and it has tiles on the wall you first see, the wall facing the road is cream. Also note that there is a second property called Landrends (no access/relation to Skyber) located on the same road part way down the hill into Launceston.

"Superb barn apartment - highly recommended"
fantastic quality barn with all the mod cons; super clean and well laid out - we thought it was a brand new conversion (actually been available for 5 plus years). hosts are super friendly and I would recommend you try there farm sausages and fresh eggs available on site.
great location for the rest the usual tourist locations
has a glorious wood burner next to the flat screen TV - returning from a hard day holidaying is really nice with that going.
cannot recommend it highly enough! we will be going back...
