Guestbook comments from the owner

Great holiday, fantastic house +Grounds really enjoyed the pool - spent most evenings in the games room, Let us know when you're ready to sell!

It was a lovely house and grounds, children loved the grounds (& the adults for a peaceful week), visited lovely places especially the big sheep- all had fun in the pool, even though the weather not great , but made the best of the bad days - Great Family Holiday.

One of the most exciting houses and grounds we have stayed at, the railway theme and track outside were great fun. We were incredibly lucky with the weather but even if it had rained we'd have been well holidayed here. Far Far better than we were expecting to which we all agreed we'd like to come back. Brilliant TV and broadband greatly appreciated.

My family and I have had the Most wonderful week at Tre Pol & Pen! Can't wait to go back next year!

  • 5 of 5

This week has been truly magical! Everything about Tre Pol & Pen was perfect. All my 5 children loved it (age range from 23yrs - 15yrs). The snooker table and Xbox in the games room were Fantastic!! A real bonus in a holiday home with young adults! The swimming pool was great but a little chilly as heated by solar, this didn't stop the kids enjoying it! Walking around the 4 acres and following the miniature train track through the grounds was superb for the dogs..

All the rooms were exceptionally clean and cosy with amazingly comfy beds!!

This barn was a real gem hidden in the countryside, felt like we were in our own oasis!

Local stores were about a 20minute drive away.. Tescos, Spar and lovely Pubs!

Can't wait to rebook and comeback next summer.. thank you for a fabulous holiday.

A great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

A great place for a large or extended family to stay, with easy access by car to the local shop, tesco 6 miles away and everything Cornwall has to offer. Enough room for ten people to sleep comfortably without the need for using the pull-out beds. A snooker room, a small tv lounge and the kitchen table allow three different areas for family gatherings. The kitchen and the utility room are well equipped and the whole property was clean and tidy. The outside space is very interesting to use and explore but younger children will need to be supervised due to the grounds being on several levels. Please note that during our week there, the stairs leading down to the pool were closed off as they were in the process of being replaced (the only reason for a four star rating instead of 5!!).

The owners provided an excellent customer service and supplied a folder with all the necessary information needed to fully enjoy Tre Pol and Pen. The next time we are planning a visit to Cornwall, this will be our first point of call.

Fantastic converted barn in beautiful countryside .

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Pol Tre and Pen. A wonderful converted barn full of character. Very spacious, clean and well presented. Everything you would need for a great stay was provided. We all enjoyed the snooker room ,the play station and many games and books provided.

The garden was very large and the children loved exploring it , magical . Although the weather wasn't always good we made full use of the pool and patio, which was located in a delightful sun trap.

Pol Tre and Pen is situated in beautiful countryside . It is close to amazing beaches and many tourist attractions .

We would love to return here and explore more of Cornwall .

Our nearest beach is Crackington Haven which is approx. 9.5 miles away (20 minute drive), 25 minutes from Widemouth Bay and 30 minutes from Bude, all 3 of these are excellent surfing beaches.


I would advise that the use of car would be essential for this property


1/2 mile to nearest shop at Tresmeer Village - well stocked with all essential goods including excellent pasties and an off license.

Launceston Town with its medieval castle and Steam Railway and independent shops is 7 miles with also supermarkets including Tesco and a shopping center including Argos, Store 21, New Look etc.

Egloskerry village is 2 miles away.
