  • "What an excellent property!"

    Plenty of parking, large rooms, good quality bedding and kitchen wares. Plenty of seating which was comfy, and for the size of the property, surprisingly warm! Short drive to the beach, and Plenty to explore in the general area. Would happily stay here again. Also good sized garden for the dogs to enjoy the cracking scenery.

  • "What a find!"

    ..tucked away in the small hamlet of Trewethern is this little gem, the converted Trewethern barn! ..The lovely owners were very helpful and friendly. They visited us the morning after we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed for our two weeks stay and that all was well with the property. They were eager to ensure that we was comfortable and happy with it, which I have to say we were! The barn is set in an idyllic location. The views from the garden over the gorgeous Cornish countryside are outstanding. What spectacular views to wake up to every morning! I would never tire if them. This really is a get away from it all location, which is just what the doctor had ordered for me following a truly awful couple of years battling illness. Even my son and his partner, who are both in thier early 20's, appreciated how truly beautiful the setting is. The barn itself was comfortable and had everything we needed and although it was not 'top spec modern' this only added to its charm and appeal for myself and my husband. We wasn't worrying all the time that the dog would wreck any white or cream carpets with his muddy paws, as there was a huge foot mat leading into the barn where we could wipe him down after a day walking , or dust off the sand from one of the many fabulous beaches we were so close to. The flooring is hardwood downstairs which makes for easy cleaning. Saying that is very comfortable and pretty. There were walks in the countryside straight from the front door. It was also close enough to the nearest town Wadebridge, which has all the shopping facilities you need and also a few nice restaurants and chinese, indian takeaways..all the usual things you would expect. Although we did have the occasional takeaway or meal out we also did quite a lot of our own cooking, as it was so well equipped at the barn. It was such a nice setting we spent a few afternoons just sitting on the lawn reading a book in the sun and sat on the deckchairs we was kindly loaned for our stay by the owners. In the evenings, following a nice hot shower and our evening meal we would usually relax with a nice cuppa or glass of wine and watch a film. We took our laptop and an HDMI cable so we could still access Netflix and Prime, although the Barn does have freeview my son and his GF are film buffs, so we hooked the laptop to the TV and they was able to watch anything really. We were so impressed we will definitely return. I shouldn't really be telling you all about this little gem or we might not be able to get our slot again for next year! I really have fallen in love with this place. Until next year Trewethern!

    The owners were welcoming. Lovely to have flowers on the table and in the master bedroom. The cottage is cosy and comfortable with everything that we needed. Good walks from the door with two pubs in walking distance. Great beaches and places to see within easy reach.

  • "Trewethern Barn is glorious."

    It's surrounded by beautiful Cornish countryside and just a short drive to so many lovely beaches and fishing villages. The barn is super-cosy and comfortable and wonderfully equipped. We were made to feel very welcome by Bill and Carole and found the barn spotlessly clean and tidy. It was so nice to spend a week in such a beautiful and remote location where everything felt quiet and peaceful.... it really helped us to recharge our batteries. Based on a very poor booking experience on another property we would never use Sykes again but we very much hope we can rebook Trewethern Barn via another source as we'd absolutely love to stay there again. Thank you very much indeed Bill and Carole for letting us stay at your beautiful barn. It was delightful.

    It was the perfect location (Trewethern) for peace and quiet and to explore the local area, especially as we were looking to buy a property nearby. The owners were exceptionally kind and helpful. Thoroughly recommend the barn as a superb place to stay as a holiday base.

    Very pleased with the secure garden so the dogs could potter around on their own. Everything you could want inside the cottage and lovely comfy beds. I would highly recommend this property.

  • "This is a lovely cottage converted from an old barn."

    Sleeps 6 (3 + 1 + 2). Excellent cycling round the pretty lanes - provided you have low gears for all the hills - and not far from Polzeath, Rock, Camel Trail, and the amazing Trebarwith Strand. (No shelter for bikes though.) The front door needed looking at - we had to lift the door for the Yale catch to work, which wasn't easy. The kitchen is very well equipped. The only real absence is comfortable chairs for the garden - 3 or 4 deck chairs or similar would be nice for sitting out. Highly recommended.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, and appreciated the stock fenced garden which meant we could allow our two dogs to go outside without worrying about them getting lost. The nearby pubs in St Kew and Chapel Amble had excellent food and beers and were dog (and people!) friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend the property.

    Beautiful views in a tranquil setting that is off the beaten track. The cottage has everything needed and the enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. Favourite days out were to Rock beach and taking the ferry across to Busy Padstow. The nearby St. Kew Inn served delicious homemade food and the staff were friendly. Helpful holidays again provided a faultless service. Thank you.

The property

A mile from St Kew and its excellent pub, is a handsome detached converted barn, believed to have medieval origins.

Elegant and roomy with knobbly walls, deep-set windows and a few exposed beams, this is an inviting and attractive place to stay.

There's a big open-plan living area with a wood burning stove and wooden floor.

Upstairs are three bedrooms – a bright double with French windows, a family room, and a single.

To the front and sides is a large, enclosed, mostly lawned garden with table and chairs, shaded by mature trees, with lovely long views.

This is a wonderfully quiet spot, a few miles from popular Port Isaac and the coast.

There are splendid walks along the Coast Path to many delightful coves including Port Gaverne, the fjord-like Port Quin and splendid surf sand beach at Polzeath.

There’s water bound adventures to be had at Rock just five miles along the coast, where you'll find a sailing school and water sports centre.

Trewethern Barn is in an ideal spot for exploring this beautiful stretch of coastline.

Not far from Port Isaac, St Kew is a small village – the first recorded in Cornwall! - on the north Cornish coast. The village church dates from the fifteenth century and is home to some remarkable stained glass windows. Also in St Kew is a traditional village pub and a golf course, and there is a donkey sanctuary at St Kew Highway. The St Kew Inn also dates from the fifteenth century, and boasts a lovely open fire in winter and a pretty beer garden for sunshine drinks in the summer. There are some lovely walks in the countryside surrounding St Kew, including a circular route through the river valleys.
