About Mrs Judi Wildeman

We bought Taskus Barns in March 2010 to make a new life for ourselves in the beautiful surroundings of Cornwall. We worked for over 20 years in the pharmaceutical events field running our own event management company and it would be true to say we know a thing or two about hospitality and making people feel welcome. Over the last 20 years we have stayed in so many hotels around the world that their good points and their shortcomings have given us a real desire to come up with what we think is a lovely place to stay giving qualty, style and value for money. In fact, somwhere we would want to stay ourselves! Mulberry and Chestnut Barns are the result of our hard work.

Why Mrs Judi Wildeman chose Gwinear-Gwithian

We always like a challenge and Mulberry and Chestnut Barns, although very pretty, were looking very tired and in need of some TLC. So the renovating and updating began and we opened for our first guests in February 2011. We have tried to make them homely, stylish and comfortable, and the feedback from our guests seem to reflect this. You can be sure of a warm welcome, a friendly smile and a nice place to stay. Come and see us soon!
