Visited while on Holiday, it's awesome old school feel, the walls are well set, the staff are uber friendly, and the boulder looks awesome(shame it was being set for comp night when we visited (6/7/18). I'd go back in a heartbeat if down that way again.

Great atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff, very interesting routes that are regularly updated, brilliant events. Quite simply the best climbing centre I've ever been to by a long way.

There's no decent indoor wall in west Cornwall, so we travel to the outskirts of Devon to visit The Barn (120 mile round trip), we love it - good size, bouldering and roped climbs, routes changed regularly, decent cup if coffee/tea and loos, well worth the trip on a wet day.

The Boulder is truly great! We do a 160mile round trip most weeks to visit the Barn but its well worth it. Great routes with a good atmosphere too. A facility that really has something for everyone.

One of the best climbing walls ever. Quality instruction with a friendly approch means i will keep coming back.

really nice friendly place to climb. I really love the boulder. Routes mostly look really steep, so only for the strong. Also the holds are very well used!! Great place

The old Barn (at Bude) has closed and relocated to a new venue at Milton Abbot - see website for details.

A great place to start a climbing career, popular with the local kids, and serious enough for those who know. (not me).
