About David and Chris Burley

David was born in Cornwall and has happy memories of family holidays in the area. We bought the barn when our children were teenagers, having moved on from the bucket and spade phase to discovering the delights of surfing and body boarding! David is a keen dinghy sailor and enjoys messing around on the water. Chris is a teacher and loves the dramatic scenery and walks of the Cornish coastline, as well as trips to the open air Minac Theatre at Porthcurno.

David and Chris Burley purchased this cottage in 2002

Why David and Chris Burley chose Padstow

As an architect, David was attracted to the barn because of its double height, open plan living area and its original exposed beams. Its slighty sunken south facing garden is a sun trap. The peaceful location is an ideal retreat from busy Padstow, but close enough to feel part of it too. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we have!

What makes this cottage unique

Although Cornwall is thought of as a Summer vacation, our wood burning stove makes it a cosy Winter retreat. During the shoulder season the barn can be booked for long weekends - ideal for walks on deserted beaches and sampling local pubs. We also accept 1 dog, on negotiation, for an additional fee of £20.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

One of the nicest small cottages we've stayed in, very comfortable with a good amount of space and a sunny rear garden. It's down a very small lane where there are a group of cottages off a main courtyard but we were there in September and it was very peaceful and quiet. Ideal for Padstow and nearby beaches.

Lovely location, well appointed cottage,handy for Padstow and surrounding area

  • 4 of 5

Short break in area. Lots of lovely walks nearby and if you have a four-legged friend, most of the beaches are dog-friendly the whole year round. Padstow lively and bustling with lots of places to wine and dine.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

Property is not far from Padstow and in a quiet location with other barns. It was fine for us, our daughter and dog. The owners were easy to contact when we had a small issue and we would certainly visit again.

Lovely location, a clean spacious interior with everything one would need for a week

  • 4 of 5

Pleasant property, well stocked with everything one would need for a weeks stay so just needed to turn up with clothes, food and beach towels. A bit disappointed some the door knobs on the kitchen cabinets kept coming off and the toilet seat was very loose and so did not stand up but minor things and they did not spoil the holiday.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Tregella. The bathroom is due to be refurbished this winter as part of our continual maintenance to keep the cottage updated for our guest.
