Details for holiday Lambs' Barn Sleeps 10 (5 Bedrooms), 5 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10, 2 Bathrooms

The largest of the cottages, Lambs' Barn offers versatile accommodation having two double bedrooms, three twin bedrooms (one with double and single beds), and two bathrooms.

With two separate living areas, you have the choice of gathering round the woodburner or enjoying the summery feel of the living area in the south end of the property. Here, painted floorboards and bright Turkish rugs make for a lovely light space leading directly onto the wooden balcony, ideal for eating out or having a sundowner, looking southwards over the moor.

While the decoration and furnishings share the bright character of the other properties, the layout differs in that one of the twin rooms is upstairs at the Northern end of the property.

As well as the wooden balcony, the property has a deck overlooking the communal lawn; both outside areas are equipped with garden furniture and barbecues. From here it is a few paces to the fields leading down to the river.

About the Owner

I (Carey Bruton) live at Trevadlock Manor with my husband Mickey and two children, Rory (18) and Lucy (16) and our menagerie of animals, Willy the dog (pointer/Vizsla cross - our 3rd child), two cats, two horses, two pygmy goats and two geckos! I grew up in Cornwall and Mickey who's originally from Essex came to know it and love Cornwall he's as much a local as I am. We all love this area of Cornwall on the edge of the moor in a completely unspoilt part yet within easy reach of both north and south coasts. It is our aim that guests who stay in our 4 star dog friendly accommodation set in 25 acres, get the most out of their holiday and see and enjoy the best that the county has to offer. We therefore are happy to recommend places to visit, eat, drink, walk, run, ride, sail, surf etc.

From the Owner

Mickey and I fell in love with the land as much as we did with the house. I grew up on the South Coast of Cornwall approx. 45 minutes away, which is beautiful too but very busy. Neither of us knew this area at all and we continue to be particularly struck by how unspoilt it really is. Visitors tend to hammer on past on their way to the coast and this part is overlooked. As a result it retains a magical forgotten quality - as Cornwall used to be I imagine. The land is particularly beautiful, meadows roll steeply down to the River Lynher which trickles along sleepily in the valley. Magnificent oaks dot the valley, wild hedges, green lanes & woods eventually open up onto the moor. Despite being so remote it's only 1.1/2 miles from the A30 and easy to reach every part of Cornwall.

From the Owner

All our properties are characterful and comfortable. The wing of the house has ample space for relaxing and entertaining, and its unique atmosphere owes much to its Swedish interior designers. The cottages are converted from a row of C19th barns, and the upstairs living areas, mostly open to the rafters, are particularly light and airy. To those who know the moor, this side is considered to be the most interesting, with dramatic Tors and a plethora of interesting historic sites to take in as you walk ancient green lanes and footpaths. We sail on the South Coast, surf on the North- within half an hour either way. We are struck by the number of guests who comment how easy it is to get anywhere from here- and how nice it is to get back. Some people never seem to leave the place.
