  • “Had a wonderful holiday at Higher ...”

    Had a wonderful holiday at Higher Kernick Barn, a great base to explore Cornwall from. The cottage was spotless and the small touches like a cream tea on arrival and fresh eggs made it really special, would love to return!

Within a short drive of fabulous beaches, hot-spot resorts and famed attractions, the area is a haven for walkers, with Bodmin Moor, the Camel Trail and the Saints Way on the doorstep.

Access the peaceful Wenfordbridge section of The Camel Trail, just 3 minutes away, or hire bikes and pedal the 5.5 miles from Wadebridge to Padstow along this scenic level track with its stunning views of the Camel Estuary - a great adventure for ramblers and cyclists.

Wadebridge, on the River Camel is 8 miles away, perfect for a coffee and browse of the craft shops.

The picturesque harbour in Padstow, 30 minutes away, is surrounded by galleries, celebrity chef eateries and traditional inns.

Nearby Polzeath Beach is great for sandcastles and surfing whilst the iconic cove at Port Isaac is very picturesque.

Explore the coastal paths to Rock and Daymer Bay or Boscastle and Tintagel, capturing the spectacular Atlantic Ocean seascape from the cliff tops.

Fabulous Fowey on the Cornish Riviera is reached within a 30-minute drive.

The giant biodomes of flora and fauna at The Eden Project are nearby and the cathedral city of Truro is host to cinema, theatre and retail shops.

Tthe accommodation is stylish and comfy, making an idyllic bolthole for couples and families seeking a countryside getaway.

About the location


Lostwithiel 6 miles; St. Austell 13 miles; Padstow 16 miles; Newquay 21 miles.

Bodmin, the one-time County Town of Cornwall with its narrow streets, shops and pubs, is perfectly placed for exploring all that this fabulous holiday area has to offer. The outstanding surf, rugged cliffs and hidden coves of the north coast beaches and the quieter sands and river estuaries of the south coast are both 15 miles away while on the edge of town is the fascinating museum and haunting presence of the old Bodmin Jail. The popular Camel Trail for cyclists and walkers also winds its way through the town on its journey to the sea at Padstow. Close by are the open spaces and wind swept grandeur of Bodmin Moor while the incomparable Eden Project (11 miles), Falmouth’s National Maritime Museum (30 miles) and the beautiful harbour town of Padstow with its famous pubs and restaurants (16 miles) make for great days out. Also within easy reach and ideal for a fun-filled day out, guests can visit Lanhydrock House, the small town of Fowey and Charlestown with its Tall Ships. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
