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.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Liberty Barn is a very stylish, homely, cosy, comfy place. It has everything you could possibly need and more. You are sure of a very warm welcome from Mark and Tracey who cannot do enough for you. Mark cooked two evening meals and two breakfasts for us. His food is amazing. He will discuss menus with you and cook to your taste, whatever you may require. Tracey made us a beautiful lemon tart served with raspberries and clotted cream. Memorable.

Liberty Barn is well placed to travel in any direction to places of interest and the sea. Again, Mark and Tracey are happy to give you advice and ideas on where to go should you require some local knowledge

We cannot recommend this place enough for either a short break or something longer. Go!

Amazing Cottage and Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is a little gem and we will definitely be returning in the future. If you're thinking of booking Liberty Barn you will not be left disappointed. The cottage is situated down a narrow lane in a quiet and peaceful area of Launceston next to their family home. They were amazing hosts, they made us feel very welcome and provided directions to the nearest beach, shops etc to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Their family dog spent alot of time with us too which we loved. We also had the opportunity to taste Mark's cooking which was an amazing experience. He used homegrown ingredients and introduced us to dishes we had not had before. The cottage is immaculate and has everything you need, including robes for the hot tub and sauna located at the top of the garden. You must use these when you visit! They gave us full use of the garden too next to the property. The two of us stayed here for 3 nights with our little pooch and were very sad to leave. Next time we will most definitely book to stay for longer. Everything about this place gets 5 stars from me, it's the nicest place I've stayed in for a break in the UK by far. Thank you Mark and Tracey, we had a fantastic time!

Just perfect...

  • 5 of 5

A Great place for a relaxing time away. The log fired hot tub was amazing for relaxing and star gazing with a glass of fizz on an evening. The cottage had everything you needed a real home from home. And mark and tracey made us feel at home on arrival and if you needed anything they were quick to help! Would defiantly recommend it to friends and will hopefully be back for a 2nd visit.

Beautiful cottage. Loved every minute if our long weekend.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at Liberty Barn Cottage, and it certainly won't be our last. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, you are made to feel so very welcome by the owners, Mark and Tracey. We cannot recommend this place enough. We wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Cornwall.
