Our review of Skiber Long and Skiber Coombe


There are two renovated barn properties here: Skiber Coombe, sleeping 6 in 3 bedrooms, and Skiber Long, sleeping 4 in 2 bedrooms.  Both properties can be booked simultaneously to offer up to ten beds.

Skiber Long has an open-plan layout with exposed wooden ceiling beams and a ton of character.  The lounge/kitchen/diner has doors leading onto a patio area with enclosed decked area and surrounding lawns.  Skiber Coombe is set across two levels with reception rooms located upstairs to make the most of the spectacular rural views.

For an idea of prices, a week in four bed Skiber Long in the peak of the summer costs around £1420, though out of season can be found for as little as £500.  Skiber Coombe (sleeping six) costs £2130/week in July and August.


Skiber Long and Skiber Coombe share the use of a lovely indoor heated swimming pool (open March to New Year) – perfect for kids of all ages to enjoy a splash each day, and a great source of entertainment on those unfortunate wetter days which might hinder a trip to the beach!

There’s also a well-equipped games room with pool table and table tennis, and a fantastic indoor climbing wall.

Set in the countryside with shared gardens, Skiber Long and Skiber Coombe offer plenty of safe outdoor space for your little ones to burn off energy.  And you’ll enjoy saying hello to the friendly farm chickens each morning.


Dads who enjoy a spot of fishing can make use of the River Inny, which cuts across the farmland, though you’ll need to remember to bring your own rods.

Both properties benefit from a cosy real wood log burner for those chillier autumn evenings.

Some limited WiFi is available, but pets are not permitted.


Set in the heart of the Cornish countryside, Skiber Long and Coombe offer secluded, peaceful holiday cottages with lovely views and some excellent entertainment for the children on site.
