STONE BARN CONVERSION. STUNNING VALLEY VIEW, PRIVATE GARDEN,WATERGATE NEARBY.

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in St Wenn - Bryn Cottage

Peaceful rural 'getaway'; 2 Bedrooms, sleeps 4 (plus camp bed and travel cot)

Bryn Cottage has it all...

Close to some of the most beautiful wild surfing beaches of North Cornwall (Newquay, Fistral, Watergate, Mawgan Porth, Constantine, to name a few!), this former barn has been converted to a cosy and characterful holiday retreat.

Occupying the upper ground floor of this traditional Cornish stone building, Bryn benefits from stunning views across unspoilt countryside. The raised patio terrace is furnished with table and chairs and is a perfect spot for relaxing and enjoying the sun, peace and beauty of the Cornish countryside. At night, the lights of Bodmin can be seen from here, twinkling across the valley in the far distance. Sitting out under the Cornish night sky is an absolute must at Bryn. Away from light pollution, the stars are an incredible sight, as is the occasional comet. Bats and owls are frequently spotted in the evenings, while buzzards are common sights around the area during the day time.

Bryn has its own private garden with large lawn & off road parking. Steps lead up to the raised patio and front door. The cottage is comfortably and tastefully furnished throughout, with close attention to detail and the visitor's every need. In keeping with the charming character of the barn conversion, there are beams throughout and an open fireplace in a stone hearth.

With the accommodation all on the first floor of the building, all rooms have views across the private garden, open valley or attractive cottage courtyard. Bryn sleeps four in two bedrooms: the master bedroom has a king-sized bed and beautiful hand-carved oak headboard. The second bedroom is twin-bedded and a 5th person can be accommodated on a fully sprung camp bed. In addition, there is a travel cot and high chair for a baby/toddler.

The spacious bathroom has a bath and electric shower over. The hallway has space for boots/shoes and coat hanging and there is a large Ordnance Survey map of the area on the wall, to help you plan your local outings!

The large lounge has a galley-style kitchen to one side, separated by the feature stone hearth and chimney breast. With comfortable soft furnishings, the lounge is a sunny and cosy space for relaxing with a book, a glass of wine and a roaring log fire in the colder months. A dining table and chairs are positioned by one of the large sunny windows, so you can enjoy the lovely views whilst eating.

The kitchen is well-equipped, to provide you with all the convenience you might have at home. Basic household essentials are also supplied (tea, coffee, sugar, kitchen linen, kitchen roll, washing-up liquid, soap, and so on) so that you don't have to bother with all those necessary but tedious purchases when you arrive.

The cottage is equipped with a television, DVD and video players, music centre and a selection of films and CDs. We also have a selection of boxed toys, games and puzzles for our younger visitors, as well as books, leaflets and maps about things to do in the local area and wider afield in Cornwall.

Bryn is close to the tiny hamlet of St Wenn and the small (but very well equipped!) town of St Columb Major. The coast is a short drive over rolling countryside, with the attraction of famous locations such as Padstow, Rock, Newquay and Port Isaac (famous location for the filming of 'Doc Martin').

There is so much to do in Cornwall; being in a central location our visitors to Bryn Cottage are spoilt for choice! The popular Eden Project is only 10 miles away, while famous beaches and seaside locations of the North Coast are less than 15 minutes by car. The bustling towns of Wadebridge, Bodmin and Truro are just 9, 13 and 19 miles respectively. King Arthur's famous Tintagel Castle is a short drive and well worth a visit, both for its history and stunning views. The beautiful quayside location of Port Isaac (home for 'Doc Martin') is in the same direction and just 17 miles away.

Another famous spot for filming is the charming stately home, 'Prideaux Place', just outside Padstow. A mere 12 miles from the cottage, Prideaux Place has been to filmset location for the Rosamund Pilcher film: 'Coming Home', as well as other productions made for German television such as 'Flowers in the Rain', 'The End of Summer', 'The Long Weekend' and 'The Red Dress'.

The Tate Gallery and Hepworth Museum are both in beautiful St. Ives and a short drive away is the quaint seaside town of Port Isaac, where the British series 'Doc Martin' is filmed. The pretty Lost Gardens of Helligan are worth a visit, as is the Cornish Maritime Museum at Falmouth.

Cornwall abounds with historical heritage sites and gardens, inclusing: Pendennis Castle, Lanhydrock House, St Mawes Castle, Cotele Tudor House, Glendurgan Garden, Trelissick Garden and Trerice Elizabethan Manor House.

The beaches are of course Cornwall's top attraction! The county offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the country. They are many and varied, ranging from quiet, sandy coves to the magnificent and famous surfing beaches such as Newquay and Watergate Bay. Surfing lessons are available from most of the large beaches and many beaches have additional facilities such as cafes, bars, restaurants and life guard care. Rock pooling and beach fishing are also popular activities, as is kayaking and beach kite-surfing.

Walking and cycling opportunities are plentiful in this area. The well known Camel trail, just 9 miles from Bryn Cottage, is a dis-used railway track that runs alongside the River Camel from Bodmin to Padstow, via Wadebridge. It runs through 11 miles of beautiful and unspoilt countryside, and is a haven for cyclists, walkers, runners and bird watchers. Although the surface is ideal for cycling, it is also level and smooth, making it suitable for prams and wheelchairs. Cycles of all types can be hired from a number of centres at Wadebridge, Bodmin and Padstow.

Cornwall is also a great holiday destination for families with children. Aside from the great beaches and quays with crabbing and rock-pooling fun, there are a great many other attractions for youngsters, including: nearby Crealy Adventure Park, Flambards Adventure Park at Helston, and The National Seal Sanctuary (also at Helston). Newquay is a short drive from Bryn Cottage and its attractions include: Newquay Zoo, Dairyland Farm World, Blue Reef Aquarium, Lappa Valley Steam Railway and Springfields Pony Centre.

Further afield, Penzance and the far west of Cornwall to Land's End are just over an hour's drive away. Here you can visit the stunning spot of St Michael's Mount and the amazing Minack open air theatre on the cliff edge at Porthcurno.

TRANQUIL CORNISH COTTAGE

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great holiday at this character property in the heart of the Cornish countryside, with total peace and beautiful views over the fields towards Bodmin. The cottage, which forms the upper level of a converted barn, is very comfortable and well equipped. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, very kind and helpful. We stayed over the Christmas week and there were even seasonal decorations to welcome us! Highly recommended.

COMFORTABLE, AWAY FROM IT ALL ACCOMMODATION

  • 5 out of 5
Bryn Cottage is the top storey of a converted barn, which was one of a handful around a small courtyard. so more of a flat really, with another holiday home underneath, however that was not a problem for us as there was no one there at all the time that we were there.

The property was clean and comfortable, and had been done up and furnished to a good standard, and had practically everything which anyone might need. The bathroom was lovely and the kitchen well equipped. Toys, books and games supplied for younger children and an extensive DVD and video library. There was space to park a car outside the door, and a lawned area for children to play.

The location is delightfully quiet, with a fantastic view across to Bodmin from both the lounge window and the terrace. Being a fair distance from any town there is low levels of light pollution at night, and therefore on a clear night the view of stars is fantastic. We were even able to see a couple of shooting stars.

Although off the beaten track, we found this to be a good location for travelling around to different places. Plenty of good beaches and child orientated attractions within a reasonable driving distance. A car would be essential.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review Bryn Cottage. We try very hard to make it a 'home from home' and to supply everything that visitors of every age might like to find; so we were very gratified to read that you had appreciated this.

I am so glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage - we think this is one of the best selling points for Bryn!

You are right - the downstairs cottage is owned as a private holiday home and so is rarely occupied.

We hope we get the opportunity to welcome you back at Bryn Cottage another time in the future. Thank you!

LOVELY COTTAGE WITH EXCEPTIONAL VIEWS

  • 5 out of 5
Bryn cottage comprises the upper level of a two storey barn-conversion just outside the hamlet of St Wenn and enjoys spectacular views over the surrounding countryside. On arrival there was a problem with the front door key (which had been bent out of shape by the previous tenants) but the owner and her local helper provided us with a replacement very quickly indeed so we were soon enjoying the cottage.

Apart from the stunning view across countryside towards Bodmin, my main impression of the cottage is the high quality of the finish, especially the kitchen and bathroom, which would not be out of place in one's home rather than a holiday cottage. We also appreciated the owner's welcome pack of tea and coffee, a bottle of wine, and cakes.

We chose this cottage partly for its central Cornwall location, making it relatively easy to visit both South and North coast, though the terrible April weather during our stay meant that our sight-seeing was a bit limited. The gardens at Glendurgan and the stream railway at Bodmin were my personal highlights.

All in all, I hope to stay again in the future.

GORGEOUS PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
From the very first moment we felt at home in this beautiful and well equipped romantic cottage. It is hard to wake up in the morning because it`s such a quiet and peaceful place. A lot of attractions can be easily reached from Bryn Cottage within a short time. After homecoming in the evening we enjoyed sitting by the fireplace listening to the Carpenters or U2 and reading a book.
We`re looking forward to return.

A LOVELY COTTAGE IN A PEACEFUL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Quality accommodation in a quiet yet convenient location for visiting many of the beaches and attractions. Byrn Cottage exceeded our expections; it was very clean and well presented. We cannot recommend it too highly. It was a joy to return in the evenings to a warm and cosy cottage after a full and busy day.

The cottage lies in an ideal position for touring Cornwall, being within easy reach of both the North and South coasts and their many magnificent beaches. It is within 10 minutes of both the A30 and A39, and similar distance from Newquay Airport. The far west coast at Land's End is an easy day trip. Situated in the peaceful rolling countryside 8 miles inland from Padstow, Bryn Cottage has bright, stunning views across open fields and farmland to the nearby hamlet of St. Wenn.
