We have both been teaching in a local primary school and are now retired.

Our children are all grown up and spread around the country so the plan is to tour the UK and Europe with our caravan.

Lovely barn conversion in ideal location close to Padstow

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the end September - beginning of October 2016 and the property was ideally situated for Padstow and the surrounding area. The barn was very well equipped and comfortable and felt like a home from home. The owners were very helpful when we arrived and in the barn were plenty of maps and pamphlets on local attractions and restaurants. The barn was very clean and tidy and nicely furnished situated in a quiet spot with a few other properties nearby. I liked the layout with the three bedrooms downstairs with the kitchen and lounge upstairs making great use of the space.

We chose to visit the Eden Project on the day we were expecting rain and took about half an hour to drive there.We had visited Cornwall quite a few times and never got round to visiting Eden before so glad we went.

On another day we cycled the Camel Trail from Padstow to Wadebridge return. We found a tiny cafe in Wadebridge called the Shed and had a lovely cream tea and ciabattas.

We visited Polzeath and Port Isaac and local beach of Harlyn Bay and luckily the weather was lovely for the time of year.

We liked the Cornish Arms (Rick Stein) in St Merryn, thought the Rick Stein chippie takeaway a little overrated (sorry). If you're paying £35 for four meals, it really needs to be top quality.

In summary, I would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and say how much we enjoyed staying here.

A lovely home from home!

  • 5 of 5

On arrival, everywhere was clean and fresh. It all felt immediately like being home, little bathroom touches were glamorous (pretty lights in the main bathroom), and comfy beds and pillows. The lounge size is impressive, plenty of space, lots of dvd's, games and books. Although we were too busy to use anything, it was great to know things were there for a rainy day. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials, it was a relief to not have to go and buy basics like cloths or cleaning products. The bottle of wine was chilled and enjoyed! We were sad to leave.

The are is very quiet, off a lane in the country, but a short drive to lots of beaches, good parking at Harlyn Beach and reasonably priced, Constantine, Treyarnon, Trevone etc all beautiful. We're looking forward to our return next year! The Halfway house did great food on the A39, and the Golden Lion in Padstow, both worth a mention.

Would thoroughly recommend.

Relaxing home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home in order to celebrate a 40th birthday. The house is excellent and very homely.

We arrived to a beautiful cake and some supplies which was a welcome treat. The house is very well equipped with everything you'd need for a weeks holiday.

The house is perfectly situated and provides peace and quiet which was most welcome from those of us who are townies!! Very close to beaches and local areas with Padstow just a short drive away.

All in all, I would whole heartedly recommend this beautiful house and indeed the area itself as a holiday destination. We have enjoyed the week so much and would definitely return.

We booked Padstow so we could celebrate the birthday at Rick Steins seafood restaurant. The restaurant did not disappoint and the house made the holiday even better.

Speaking of Rick Stein, it turns out he pretty much owns Padstow, we wondered if the place will grind to a halt when he meets the great fish God in the sky. Anyway, we loved it!!

Absolutely brilliant

  • 5 of 5

What a l,ittle gem of a cottage, perfect;y placed for the beaches and Padstow itself, yet quiet enough to believe you are in the middle of nowhere. On arrival we found Milk, tea, coffee etc in the fridge aling side a nice chilled bottle of wine, there was also home made cake waiting for us which after our journey was quickly eaten up.

The cottage itself is just fantastic, with everything you could possibly need on hand, the kids loved the fact that they didn't loose their SKY tv the dog just loved the space for her to roam arounf in, in fact i think she had the best time as she made friends with the owners god very quickly and they were hard to prise apart.

If you are looking for a spacious cottage with fantastic beaches, many dog friendly all year and only a short hop from the beautiful Padstow then my advice would be to snap this up if its available, you won't be disappointed.

Burrows and Brown Party

  • 5 of 5

Lovely warm welcome. Very nice accommodation a real home from home. An added bonus of a toy corner which was well used through out the week by four year old Amelia-May (4th birthday celebrated during our stay) and 20 month old Olivia. The property is brilliantly located, 5 minute drive from Padstow and short drive to many other popular beeches, suitable for surfers and families alike. We have the Cornwall bug so will no doubt return.

From the Owner

A delightful rural location yet close enough to beaches and the Camel estuary for all the watersports we both enjoy.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Newquay at 7 Miles Nearest Barpub : St Merryn at 3 Miles Nearest Ferry : Plymouth at 53 Miles Nearest Golf : Trevose Head Golf Club at 4 Miles Nearest Train : Bodmin Parkway at 23 Miles Nearest Motorway : M5 at 85 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Rafferty's St Merryn at 3 Miles Nearest Beach : Treyarnon at 4.2 Miles Car: necessary


Within 10 minutes driving are the five fabulous beaches surrounding Trevose head. All are stunning sandy beaches offering lifeguarded swimming areas as well as excellent surfing. For calmer conditions choose one of the sheltered beaches on the Camel estuary leading towards Padstow.

This area is a delight for water sports enthusiasts. Sailing and waterskiing are very popular on the Camel estuary. Padstow sailing club is nearby where temporary membership is available.


Newquay airport is 20 minutes driving time from the property. The ferry port of Plymouth is within 40 miles.

Due to the rural nature of the property a car is highly recommended although bus services do run from the bus stop a five minute walk away.


Padstow with harbour, great restaurants, shops and camel trail cycle route is less than 4 miles away.

Within 5 miles are the superb Atlantic beaches of Treyarnon, Constantine, Boobys, Harlyn and Trevone.

Retallack resort and spa offers wake boarding, a spa, indoor pool and flowrider and is 5.5 miles away.
