The ideal, remote retreat for couples offering peace and tranquillity on the beautifully stark Bodmin Moor.  A former converted granite stone barn will inspire a great holiday.

See the other side of Cornwall with a stay on its beautifully stark Bodmin Moor, home to some of the best West Country landscapes. This former granite stone barn offers a remote retreat for couples seeking peace and tranquillity, located nearly 2 miles from the quaint village of St. Breward within 4 acres of gardens. Wake up to the sound of wildlife through the window, before padding out to the patio for an al fresco breakfast with an inimitable view of the wildlife pond and beyond.

The rustic charm of the moor continues inside the barn, with much of its original features retained. A wood burner sits pride of place in the lounge, warming the house through on winter days and cool nights, while exposed beams and charming cottage angles throughout add a lovely country feel. From the upstairs bedroom, you'll enjoy far-reaching moorland views from the stone window.

Climb the tallest points in Cornwall: Brown Willy (5 miles) and Rough Tor (6 miles) for the most impressive views around. If you can tear yourselves away from the rugged charm of the moors, head north to the coast, where miles and miles of coves and inlets wait to be discovered. And before you leave, visit Bude (10 miles) and Padstow (18 miles) for true Cornish coastal charm that simply cannot be missed.

The cottage was perfect for our needs, set in a quiet and rural location with a well appointed kitchen and comfortable lounge-diner and double bedroom. The owners are very friendly and on hand to answer any queries that may arise. A tour around the owner's gardens would be recommended too as they are stunning.

A wonderful barn conversion in a isolated and peaceful setting. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. A wonderful base to visit many attractions as well as the many walks in the area. If you are looking to get away from everything but still want a local shop / pub this is the place for you.

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.
