About Tracey Souter

Having spent most of my adult life in Las Vegas learning all about the restaurant/hospitality industry i moved to London in 2005 where i met my wife and when we were lucky enough to have our daughter 2 years later we decided to leave the rat race behind and follow our dream. Tracey is a Westcountry girl so we returned to her roots and fell in love with the rugged countryside and stunning coastline of North Cornwall. We haven't looked back and feel blessed to be able to live in this magical part of the country. We have found the best possible area to fully indulge our passion, food !

Tracey Souter purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tracey Souter chose North Cornwall

The cottage sits adjacent to our home and in gardens of about 3/4 acre. We were drawn to this area for it's peaceful rural location but with easy access to amenities, beaches, rugged countryside walks and the ability to get to a bigger town if the need for retail therapy grabs you !

Bodmin Moor, steeped in history is right on our doorstep. We are also just off the A30 so the perfect location to explore further in to Cornwall or Devon, just across the border !

What makes this cottage unique

Food is our passion. We grow our own fruit/vegetables and have daily fresh eggs from local chickens. Cornwall provides us with the best seafood/free range meat in the country and we use this to the best of our ability to appeal to our customers in a diverse exciting manner. If you want to have a self catering vacation, that's fine, the kitchen is well equipped with all mod cons. You could choose bed and breakfast and we will prepare a continental or full English breakfast using the best locally sourced produce. Alternatively we can provide occasional catering. Just contact us beforehand to discuss. We are here to make your holiday memorable.

Beautiful and comfortable property.

Great welcome from Mark and a lovely welcome basket full of local produce. The cottage was well equipped with everything needed for our stay. The spa area is brilliant. We highly recommend Liberty Barn Cottage as a place to stay.

Perfect could fault anything

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many cottages, but this one is the best. Made very welcome by the owners and really want to make sure that we were ok. The cottage is spotless and very well appointed and a lovely welcome basket awaits your arrival. The only fault is we didn't stay long enough. Thank you for letting us use your wonderful cottage.

Just amazing! So relaxing! Will be back!

  • 5 of 5

Truly fabulous 4 nights spent here! The cottage was a delight, so clean and decorated with beautiful taste. The owners, Mark & Tracey, could not have been more friendly or helpful, even providing us with a fabulous 4 course dinner on our last evening! We went for a relaxing break and that is most definitely what we got! Came home feeling totally refreshed and just can't wait to return! Based brilliantly too if you want to go and explore Cornwall or Devon!

Perfect hidden gem and hide away.

  • 5 of 5

Our stop was short but was exactly what the doctor ordered. Quiet, tranquil and relaxing. The cottage was very comfortable and very unique...but also a home from home. Hosts were very accommodating and helpful. The spa - sauna in particular was just great. We wished we could have stayed longer.

Perfect holiday retreat in every way with great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just spent five perfect days based at Liberty Barn Cottage. The cottage was clean, tidy and had everything required to make the perfect place to stay and the added touches of fresh flowers and plants around the house just showed how much our hosts Mark and Tracey want their guests to feel at home. We indulged in one of Mark's home prepared meals on our last night and weren't disappointed and would highly recommend to everyone.

Best Little Guest House in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

The first thing you feel arriving at this property is warmth and that happy feeling you've booked the right place! The setting is very pretty and the cottage is nicely furnished and very fresh. Mark and Tracey are very welcoming and their daughter quickly collared our son for a play around the property with some friends; he felt right at home immediately. And then there's Nelly, the family bundle of white fluff -- she's a cutie...a dog by the way.

I booked the cottage for my family during the week of my birthday so on the day and after a trip down to The Minack Theatre (a must) for an afternoon performance, Mark (a chef with a lovin' touch) prepared a very special birthday feast for us in the evening with some of my favourite things -- yum!

Can't recommend this property enough...haven't even mentioned the sauna and hot tub yet. Book and find out!
