Want the best of both worlds, then look no further than Trefreock Barn. The beautiful rural setting, shared only with a handful of near neighbours, set in a peaceful hamlet of only six houses will ensure you totally unwind and relax, yet you are only minutes from Port Isaac and all the delights on offer on Cornwall's stunning north coast – what more could you want?
Using the original stone, hand-made bricks and Cornish elm beams, Trefreock Barn has been sensitively restored to a very high standard. The glazed floor to ceiling windows fill the sitting-room with sunshine, and in the evenings you can cosy up to the wood-burner. Wooden floors and oak stairs retain the rural charm and the farmhouse kitchen, complete with Aga (owing to the heat output, the Aga is switched off from the beginning of June to mid October), will be the focal point of your holiday, where plans are made and meals will be convivially enjoyed.
The bedrooms are on two separate sides of the cottage so privacy is assured. The master bedroom is above the kitchen/dining-room and boasts views out across open countryside towards the sea, and the three further bedrooms are accessed up a short flight of stairs from the kitchen/dining-room through the sitting-room.
Forget your troubles, pack a picnic and plan those days out to Port Isaac, Polzeath, Padstow and the world renowned Eden Project. Within easy reach by car are several stunning country houses, Prideaux Place, Pencarrow House and the unmissable National Trust property at Lanhydrock. If the surf beaches of the north coast do not offer enough activity, The Point is only a few miles away where you can use the gym, swimming pool and tennis courts or just relax in the jacuzzi or sauna.
For those who enjoy walking, the nearby coastal footpath winds along stunning headlands and through breathtaking coves which are carpeted with bluebells and primroses in the spring and if you are foodie connoisseurs, you are spoilt for choice as you are in foodie heaven with an abundance of terrific places to eat and drink and more celebrity chefs than you can wave a stick at.
Also, don’t forget the Camel Trail, which runs by the side of the river from Wenford Bridge through to the estuary, a particular treat for bird watchers and a must for walkers or cyclists. This really is the perfect holiday location.
