  • "A gorgeous holiday home in a quiet valley, surrounded by countryside and trees."

    We had a memorable holiday in this luxurious house and would happily return for another visit. Nothing to complain about at all. I would highly recommend this beautiful home for a peaceful week or two in Cornwall.

The property

Resting rurally on the edge of Pentillie Castle Estate, near the famous Halton Quay and close to St Dominick, a Cornish village within the Tamar Valley AONB lies Birchenhayes, a stunning, Grade II listed barn conversion, inviting eight guests.

Enjoying woodland and valley views, offering a haven for wildlife spotting and unwinding, whilst adorned with original features throughout, including beamed, valued ceilings, and exposed stonework, Birchenhayes offers an indulgent base for a family or group break.

Accessed via a private driveway, you will arrive at a large, gravelled parking area with space for five plus cars, before travelling through an expansive garden to reach the stone-fronted dwelling.

Enter and descend to the lower-ground-floor to locate the open-plan living space and utility, complete with sleek granite worktops, state-of-the-art appliances, and lofty patio doors, with access to the peaceful garden.

Prepare meals to enjoy indoors or climb the stairs to the first-floor living/dining room for a formal affair, complete with A-framed, beamed ceilings, seating for eight, plush sofas, and a Smart TV for entertainment; get lost in the views from the Juliet balcony.

For an evening of bird watching, as the sun sets over Cornwall, unwind in the garden upon the patio furniture, light the barbecue, and enjoy an alfresco feast, before climbing into the indulgent hot tub for the night.

When sleep calls, select from four charming bedrooms, starting with a king-size on the lower-ground-floor, serviced by a shower room; on the first floor a king-size, or head into the master wing of the house, which features a handy twin room for your children along with a master suite, oozing Italian opulence, complete with his and hers sinks and luxurious copper, free-standing bath.

Awaken to a stroll across the grounds, down towards the pretty pond, before exploring Halton Quay and the Tamar Valley AONB, following one of the walking routes towards The Tamar Valley Donkey Park, or the National Trust properties of Cotehele and Buckland Abbey.

Once you're ready for a change of scenery, head to the coast of Plymouth, brimming with eateries, shops, a bustling harbour, The Mayflower Museum, and the National Marine Aquarium, recommended to tour, the Plymouth Gin Distillery to sample some local produce, the Theatre Royal Plymouth, and Tinside Lido pool.

Round off your trip in the heart of Cornwall, passing through key areas of interest including Looe, Polperro, Fowey, before returning home in time for the sunset.

Experience a nature-filled haven at Birchenhayes.
