We had a wonderful week there in William cottage. Everything very clean, fire prepared just to lit. Debby and the girls provided nice riding experiences from absolute beginners to experienced riders. For us it was an excellent stay - we can recommend it. Alfred

This was a late booking for my wife and I, together with our son and six year old grandson, but a very pleasant surprise. Directions and arrangements for arrival couldn't be faulted. The little extras to welcome us were a nice touch; biscuits, milk, tea and coffee. Our cottage was small, but we knew what to expect from the description.... More

A weekend away for my Wifes Birthday and we have had a brilliant time at Gooseham Barton Stables and Farm Cottages. Set in stunningly beautiful Cornish countryside these delightfully refurbished farm sheds have been turned into the best little cottages ever, we have had a fantastic time here. There is a very user-friendly and quirky pub across the valley which... More

Great half hour ride. Took 4 year old and she was very well taking care of. Well done to Nettle, Missy and Splash for putting up with 3 novice riders.

This is the second time that we have stayed here. Last time had a great holiday in farmhouse with my parents and 2 teenagers. This time we stayed in new barn with my 16 year old daughter. Lovely cottage, warm and cosy although weather was chilly! We were made to feel very welcome and everyone very friendly. Daughter had a... More

A warm and friendly welcome awaited us from both the staff and the horses. A lovely half hour ride on Dan, Rory, Coral and Missy. For some in our party it was their first ever time on a horse and it was definitely a success. We highly recommend and will definitely be back. Our party ranged from 14 - 66... More

Had a super ride out, Coral and Missie were delightful horses and well cared for by Julie and her colleagues. Definitely worth a visit.

It is very tricky to get cottages in the UK at a reasonable price, especially for two people but Gooseham did just this. We stayed in Norman cottage which was rather nice, with a nice kitchen and one children's bedroom and one good sized adults one. Lots of space for just two people. It was a great base to explore...

Worth the 400 mile trip to stay with Debbie at Gooseham Cottages and Riding Stables. Our two Border collies had a great time around the farm. Penny enjoyed her two rides out with Julie. The cottages were fully equipped and comfortable and we have booked for next year. We wanted a relaxing holiday and this is the place to do... More
