The property

Set amidst a beautiful countryside landscape, Higher Kernick Barn enjoys glorious almost wrap-around rural views near the village of Helland.

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. Visit Charlestown, only 25 minutes away.

See the delightful harbour and spot the views featured in the Poldark series. 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. Higher Kernick Barn is a stable block conversion adjacent to the owners' own home.

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

The sitting area has comfy sofas and the kitchen is fully equipped, while the table in the dining area is perfect for gatherings. The addition of a beautifully furnished sun room provides alternative space for sitting and relaxing and the hallway with its patio doors leading on to the courtyard makes for a spacious entrance. The two upstairs bedrooms (with some restricted height) are restful.

Sit out on the little balcony accessed from the twin bedroom with an evening tipple or relax in the private courtyard – a suntrap and ideal for barbecues. The new downstairs bedroom with stylish en suite provides an alternative for those who wish to be on the ground floor. There are picnic benches in both the courtyard and the paved area adjoining the paddock and youngsters will love feeding the resident hens.

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, The Eden Project and Lostwithiel. There is a good choice of country pubs and restaurants in the surrounding area.
