  • "We had the most wonderful stay at the Easter weekend with family."

    The property is spacious, clean and very well furnished with all the expected facilities. There is convenient access to the beautiful garden and walking areas from the kitchen. Property is conveniently located to various key tourist sites in Cornwall and Devon. Owner Jeff very kindly visited us to ensure all in order, also brought over a toddler watering can for our little one as he was too keen to water the plants!!

  • "We were amazed how spacious the Barn is, the rooms are all very large and well presented."

    The views across the valley are lovely, especially in the morning when the sun rises. Everything you could possibly need is at hand around the house. The garden walks were enjoyed by all us. The location is very quiet but only a short drive to shops when required. We explored Dartmoor which is very close, and found plenty in the area to keep both the young and old in our group entertained.

    It was immaculately clean and tidy. The beds were so comfortable and enabled us to rest well. Everything you would need is supplied. A very well thought out and sympathetic barn conversion. The accommodation sits in a beautiful area of Cornwall with fabulous views and has a lovely sun trap of a garden. Thank you we really enjoyed our stay.

  • "We had a great multi generation holiday staying here in a beautiful location with stunning views."

    The property was spacious, clean and comfortable and as the weather was fabulous all week we enjoyed eating outside surrounded by a fantastic garden. The owners were very friendly and hospitable and we were delighted to receive various fruits from the orchard and vegetables from the garden during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble and made our stay a truly memorable and relaxing week. We discovered many beautiful walks , cycled the drakes cycle path, visited the Eden project , pretty fishing villages and took a lovely harbour boat trip from Fowey. On our final evening we had a fabulous meal at Heskyn Mill dating from the 13 century- highly recommended but be sure to book in advance.

The property

Saltash 1.6 miles.

Resting in the small village of Burraton Coombe, near the town of Saltash, is this stunning grade two listed upside down barn conversion with magnificent views.

The owners converted Torlinhay Barn in 1992 whilst living in a mobile home for two years with their two young children.

The barn has been a labour of love and every attempt has been made to keep the original character with the use of granite, slate and wood.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to eight guests, Torlinhay Barn is a traditional and charming setting for your next getaway to Cornwall, situated within the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and within easy reach of Plymouth.

Walking into the hallway, go past the lounge and down the stairs to the kitchen and soon decide who the designated chef will be, there is also a breakfast bar to enjoy a casual cup of coffee in the morning.

Moving through the property there is a utility room with handy washing machine and tumble dryer, and a ground-floor shower room.

The downstairs also hosts two king-size bedrooms; one with en-suite shower room and one with an en-suite toilet, and a dining room with a beamed roof and a grand fire place with woodburning stove.

Climb the staircase to the first floor to be charmed by the large reverse-level sitting room where a second woodburning stove takes centre stage, around a TV and plenty of sofas to snuggle up in, as well as a double bedroom and a king-size bedroom with an en-suite shower room, and a main bathroom with a freestanding bath to indulge in after a long day.

In 1992 the garden was a 2 acre sloping grass field grazed by diary cattle, but since then over 200 trees have been planted including many fruit trees.

There are formal gardens which blend in with the natural grass woodland, where few chemicals are used and every attempt is made to encourage the wildlife in the garden.

Five wildlife ponds have been built and two have benches where one can sit quietly and watch nature pass by.

As you walk round the garden there are lots of hidden areas and interesting places to walk and sit down, with a gas BBQ and gas heater outside to enjoy the quiet evening countryside atmosphere.

If you venture into the town of Saltash, popularly known as "the Gateway to Cornwall", you will find plenty of old Cornish charm with narrow streets rising steeply from the banks of the river, plenty of shops, interesting inns and beautiful walks along the Tamar.

Saltash is an excellent location for visiting the local attractions and also the many tourist honey spots of Devon and Cornwall, including both Bodmin Moor and Dartmoor, coastal towns and villages of Seaton, Cawsand, Looe, Polperro and Bude.

Other places to visit include the word famous Eden project, Heligan Gardens, Burrator Reservoir, Siblyback Lake, Calstock, Cothele, Lanhydrock, Mt Edgecumbe and Sparkell Wildlife Park to name but a few. A short drive away is Tamar Vally AONB, Dartmoor National Park and Plymouth, a bustling city with plenty to occupy visitors including the historic Barbican quayside area with cafes, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium, the Plymouth Gin distillery, plenty of theatres and the opportunity for watersport adventures.

For a fun-filled trip to Cornwall, choose Torlinhay Barn.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Plymouth 6 miles; Liskeard 14 miles.

Saltash is dominated by the magnificent Tamar Bridge, Brunel’s masterpiece of engineering taking people from Devon to Cornwall across the Tamar River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Saltash retains much of its old Cornish charm with narrow streets rising steeply from the banks of the river, and plenty of shops and interesting inns. From the old quayside there are river trips up stream to Calstock, a pretty village with white cottages on a steep hillside. Here, the 120 foot giant 11-arched Calstock Railway Viaduct towers above the River Tamar and carries one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines down to the coast. Saltash offers some beautiful walks along the Tamar, and is only a five minute drive from Plymouth, with a plenty to occupy visitors including the historic Barbican quayside area with cafes, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium and several theatres. A perfect base for exploring the area along the beautiful River Tamar.
