About Gerry Gillies

We are a small family run business. We moved from Scotland to North Cornwall in 2009 taking over the cottages from the previous owners who had undertaken the original conversion. The cottages have undergone further substantial renovation since. We have 3 children, 3 dogs, 2 rabbits, and a tortoise !

We also have a lodge in Scotland in Dunkeld Perthshire on Erigmore Estate.

Gerry Gillies purchased this barn in 2009

Why Gerry Gillies chose Marhamchurch

We came on holiday to this part of North Cornwall every year from 2002 and fell in love with it. Not just obviously the beautiful coastal scenery and stunning beaches, but the pace and way of life. We have the advantage of knowing the area very well but also understanding the needs and demands of someone who is on holiday. We can tell you the best places to visit, the best places to eat, the best walks to enjoy, the best tourist attractions, and even the places to avoid. We live on site in the original farmhouse and are there to help if needed. Many of our guests come back regularly so we must be doing something right !

What makes this barn unique

We live in a wonderful secluded rural location with stunning scenery. All our cottages have private gardens with brick barbecues and are dog friendly. We have woodburners to warm you up on chilly days, modern kitchens, free wifi, and ample parking.

Bude Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Wagtail Barn over New Year and it was brilliant. The accommodation has been tastefully refurbished in a true barn conversion flavour. The kitchen / dining room is spacious and well fitted, and for us acted as the main eating and socialising area. The garden is made secure which was ideal for allowing our dog to wander around without any worries. A car is required to get about, but as we had two cars it was not a problem.

I would certainly recommend the accommodation and the organisation before, and after the stay was exemplary...

A lovely cottage, spotless and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We booked to stay in wagtail cottage last minute and so glad we did as we had a really relaxing time. The owners were really accommodating as we were able to come a day later than planned and stayed a day later which was lovely. The cottage was perfect for a dog as our dog loved running around the fields where the barns are situated as well as being less than 10 minutes in the car to the beach. It was really comfortable and excellent value, we will definitely be going back again!
