About Lainie Kelsey
We have lived in Cornwall for 4 years now and would not want to live anywhere else. My family all love it here. My son goes to the local school and joins in all the out door activities like surf school. We also have Grandma living with us, which comes in very handy.
Lainie Kelsey purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Lainie Kelsey chose Saint Eval
The location is very quiet and peaceful it is a truly unique secluded bolt hole in one of Cornwall's amazing "areas of outstanding natural beauty". The cabin is very close to Porthcothan Beach and one of the "seven bays for seven days", with their sheer sand dunes, caves, rock pools and mussels at low tide. We are also close to "The coastal path which sports wonderful cliff walks to Padstow and Porth taking in the stunning views across the North Cornish " Poldark Country". We would recommend arriving with your own transport to take advantage of the many surrounding attractions this beautiful area has to offer including the excellent restaurants and the renowned restaurants close by such as Jamie Oliver, Rick Stein and many others which we list in our information pack.
What makes this Cabin unique
The Cabin is an excellent way to just unwind and relax, it is even so quite it can be very useful if writing a novel or studying.

Certainly no Cow Shed! Great, comfy, snug hide-away for two.
As soon as we walked in we knew the Cow Shed was for us. Be warned though this is certainly no Cow Shed!!! The place is perfect for two, offering a very comfortable, private, quiet and well equipped place to stay in a great location between Padstow and Newquay. Lainie (owner) has a fantastic eye for furnishing a place, gave us a good welcome (including cake!) and was around and reactive when called on. Really well equipped, comfy bed, great shower this really is a great, well thought out, snug hideaway for two. Engollan itself is very quiet, we were happy to walk out to coast or bus (20 mins) but if this isn't for you you'll need a car. Padstow, Newquay and all points in between are all then within striking distance. Great little place and thoroughly recommend. D and J September 2018.
Relaxing, peaceful and cosy in the Cow Shed
Perfect get away for 2.
Cosy cabin with comfortable bed and everything you need for a relaxing stay. Bread, eggs, milk and a delicious cake were a nice surprise on arrival.
Thank you Lainie.
Quiet, Relaxing and Private
We had a lovely holiday staying in the cabin. It has everything you need, and is very clean and well kept. You have total privacy here, very quiet and relaxing. In only a short drive there are supermarkets and many places to eat. This is a beautiful part of Cornwall, and very close to really lovely beaches. Lainie was an excellent host. We would stay here again without hesitation and very much hope to return.
Perfect Hideaway for Two
Warm welcome, lovely accommodation. Private, excellent standard throughout. Well located for our favourite places; Padstow, Port Isaac, Wadebridge, coastal walks, camel trail. Lovely place to come back to after a day out. Ticked all the boxes and we would definitely stay again.
Lovely, quiet stay
Absolutely perfect for a peaceful week away. Would love to return.
A luxurious retreat with everything you need in Cornwall just a stones throw away!
The arrival was seamless. Lainie had text us to check if we were okay & met us on arrival. We were greeted with a tour of the property including the lemon drizzle cake !
The cow shed had everything we needed. The outside space provided a sun trap for afternoon sunbathing & a coffee in the morning. It was perfect. Peaceful & private which was just what we needed.
The living spaces were cosy with all the home comforts to hand. The shower was always hot & the bed was very comfy !
Beaches are 10 mins away by car & supermarkets the same.
We had the best time. We love the 'Cow Shed' and recommend it to anyone who needs a rest, loves the beach & enjoys luxury with a homely feeling.
