Part of a complex of four superb properties, this peaceful and tranquil barn conversion nestles in 140 acres of open farmland countryside views.

2 miles from Launceston, ‘Gateway to Cornwall', with its castle and heritage steam railway, this delightful detached stone barn conversion is your base for a tour of the Cornwall/Devon border area. One of a complex of five properties, it stands in rolling farmland and is reached by a quiet lane. From this dog-friendly nook, choose between clifftop or moorland walks, beach days, pretty harbour village visits, leisurely lunches at great country pubs, or outdoor activities like fishing or horse-riding.


A stand-out feature is the large barn windows giving you huge views and marvellous light in the spacious and well-equipped open-plan living/dining/kitchen space. Comfy bedrooms await upstairs. Outside, sizzle up a BBQ in your private patio and lawn area while sampling local craft ales and ciders. Children will love the large shared lawn area, with slide and trampoline. In this complex of properties, extended families or large groups can book together, for a linked holiday and easy transport arrangements.


Launceston is the local shopping and dining hub offering excellent local Cornish produce. Crackington Haven (21 miles away) is a deep cove great for a varied beach day, with sand stretching before you at low tide and rock pools to investigate with net and bucket, or there's Bude's popular Summerleaze Beach for a classic Cornish seaside visit within 20 miles. For walkers, Bodmin Moor's bracing open terrain begins 11 miles away – heading back, rest your legs at the pub in postcard-pretty Altarnun village on the edge of the moor.

We had such a wonderful restful week at the farm. Our children could run free and enjoy being outdoors with the many cows and sheep, the views are spectacular and the incredible calmness made for the perfect break from our busy lives! The added extras that were all included just made our holiday complete.... the milk in the fridge, the freshly madeRead more cream tea, the family boardgames, the leaflets for local days out. It had everything!! Thank you very much!! We wouldnt hesitate to return!! Hide

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
