About the property

The Barn offers spacious and uncluttered accommodation in a beautiful setting

Set in a secluded little valley in South East Cornwall, Trenedden Barn offers spacious and uncluttered accommodation in a beautiful setting. Fantastic beaches are only a couple of miles away, and Looe, Polperro, Lerryn and Fowey are all close by.

You will have the whole barn to yourself, together with the large garden. If you chose to you could spend your stay in total seclusion, maybe just hearing, or catching a glimpse of, the neighbours in the old farmhouse next door.

If you like uncluttered and spacious, you’ll like the barn. Living accommodation is upstairs, lots of space, with beautiful traditional oak floors. Bedrooms are downstairs, with slate (stone) floors. Underfloor heating throughout the barn, gives a very comfortable environment.

+ Lounge – Fantastic views over the garden and the valley, and a wood burner for cosy evenings.

+ Kitchen – Fully equipped. Breakfast island with seating for four. Step out of the kitchen directly into the back garden.

+ Dining Room – Large dining table for eight, lounge area with 55″ HD TV.

+ Bedroom 1 – take the spiral staircase down to the master bedroom. Solid oak furniture, with king size bed. En-suite bathroom with walk in shower and whirlpool bath.

+ Bedroom 2 – Solid wood furniture, with king size bed. Shared bathroom with walk in shower.

+ Bedroom 3 – Solid wood furniture, with king size bed. Shared bathroom with walk in shower.

+ Garden - The theme for the garden is wildlife friendly, with lots of things to eat. Down at the bottom of the garden is the wildlife pond in a wetland garden. An orchard has been planted with traditional apple varieties. Around the orchard is a ‘fruiting hedge’, with raspberries, gooseberries, blueberries, and the ‘superfood’ Goji berry. A pair of grape vines are being trained up over the front door – the vision is a leafy canopy to sit under in summer.

Beautifully converted barn.

We had a fantastic week in the barn; photos do not do this place justice. Perfect for families with plenty to do in the area. Sad to be leaving.

Our Stay at Trenedden Barn

  • 4 of 5

The Barn was exactly as we expected, it was great, the children loved exploring the gardens, it was a very quiet location, but you were not to far away from all the things we wanted to do.

My only concern, and to be honest I was a little disappointed in what seemed to be different costs stated on the website to the actual costs charged, with no apparent explanation as to why.

How can you state a price on the website, then decide to change to a higher price when booking, When I first contacted Owners direct and explained this they agreed and confirmed that there had been a mistake and I would be due a refund ?

To change prices at such short notice is not what I call fair practice ?

Can I please have your comments.

Owner's Response: Hi Philip, I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay at the barn, but sorry you are unhappy about the price you paid. When you made your booking on the 8th of July the price listed on the OwnersDirect website was £240 per night (standard summer holiday rate) - and that is what you paid. OwnersDirect allows owners to set different rates for different periods of the year, we were offering the Barn for £240 per night from 15-July to 1-Sept, the 'summer-holiday' period. After your booking the only un-booked week of this period was 26-Aug to 2-Sept, so sometime around the beginning of August I started reducing the price of the the 'summer-holiday' period to secure a booking for that un-booked week - the same as a tour operator reducing prices for the same holiday to get last minute bookings. So I hope I can reassure you, you paid exactly the same as the guests in the weeks before your stay, and you paid what was quoted on the website when you made the booking. The confusion was caused when I reduced the price for the whole summer-holiday period, 3-4 weeks after you booked, to get a booking for 26-Aug to 2-Sept, and your son I think, looked at the website and saw the new lower price. For the owner to change the price charged from the price quoted at the time of booking requires the approval of the guest - if you have the original quote email from 8th July you can confirm the price quoted is what was paid. I'm sorry that the way I managed the pricing caused this confusion, and I guess tainted an otherwise great holiday. Regards Chris

Beautiful and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at trenedden barn. Perfect for 2 families to share. The property was spotlessly clean and very well kitted out with good quality items - everything we needed for our stay.

Loads to do in the area, plenty of space in the garden to explore with the kids too.

Chris the owner was super helpful. Would definitely stay here again

We were gobsmacked when we saw how beautiful the barn was when we first arrived.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the barn for a week. The barn is beautifully renovated, it literally takes your breath away when you first arrive. It is set in beautiful gardens and surrounding fields with cattle. We even had deer walking across our back garden in the evening, it was truly amazing.

There are plenty of villages around to visit. We found our Tom Tom was a god send! We would recommend Looe Beach which was clean and not too busy with all the shops and glitter tattooes wanted, but my daughter loved Lansallos Bay (she thought the little hidden away cove was exciting and fun) even though the water was freezing! We watched the local stunt show on the Monday evening which was brilliant and well worth the money paid for it. We found a great Chinese restaurant in Liskeard called Hot Wok. One thing I would say, avoid like the plague a restaurant called The Golden Guinea in Looe. The food was terrible. It was poor in taste, warm in parts (not hot anywhere), the sauces/gravy had a thick skin on them and in fact I had to leave the table as the fish I ate had in fact made me feel really sick. Very disappointing.

Apart from that, we found the villages around us beautiful. We found a lovely lake with an ice cream parlour next to it and when the tide went out and the water level dropped we walked across the stepping stones over the lake/stream. The Monkey Sanctuary is worth a visit too, small but lovely.

We found the barn very welcoming and relaxing. We had a bbq using meat we had got from a local farm shop in Pelynt. The owner of the barn very kindly left some crabbing equipment which we used. My daughter went crabbing with her dad and uncle, and she loved every minute of it. We were all so taken with the property that you could almost imagine that you lived there permanently.

A very very enjoyable break, in a property where we had no problems or cause for complaint. We would recommend this barn to anyone. It has ample room and is great for a "back to the country life" kind of holiday. Very very glad we went.

Owner's Response: Thanks Suzanne for the fantastic review - I'm glad you liked the barn so much. The deer have been performing well this summer, making regular appearances in the garden (and eating garden plants!). It's good you've included things you did in the review - it's really useful to know what was good, and what was not. Chris

The Barn was exactly as described, fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Property was very clean, new bedding, comfortable mattresses and plenty of towels available.

The Barn is an upside down house, the views are beautiful, the gardens well cared for, despite the visits from the deer in the evening who were trying to eat the leaves from the trees!

The kitchen is well stocked with equipment, pots, glasses and pans. Even basics like foil and cling film were available to use.

The owner Chris, was very welcoming on our arrival and left contact details stating to contact him should we wish to know about anything. The Barn is located in a rural setting, but in a place that enables easy access to Looe, Polperro, the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and other interesting places.

We had a smashing holiday and we will recommend this property to our friends and family.

Owner's Response: Thanks very much Leisa for your nice review, I'm glad you enjoyed the barn, and it was a pleasure having you as guests. Yesterday I put up the deer protection, you suggested, around the younger trees - so hopefully there'll be less tree eating going on !

The Barn is only 3km from the south coast, as the crow flies, and we're lucky enough to have two of the best beaches in Cornwall right on the doorstep - Lansallos Cove, and Lantic Bay.

Lansallos Cove - A trip to Lansallos cove starts with the walk down the path through the woods that's like a green tunnel when the trees are in leaf. Then cross the meadow, and go through the curious 'smugglers passage' which brings you onto the beach. A family day on the beach is great, but my favourite is going down at the end of a summer day and swimming around the sheltered waters of the cove. There's good snorkelling around the edges of the cove. On the way home stop at Lansallos Church and look for the gravestone of the unfortunate chap who had his head knocked off by a cannon ball, by 'persons unknown'.

Lantic Bay - Walk down the steep path to get Great Lantic beach, featured in local author Daphne du Maurier's Frenchman's Creek. More exposed than Lansallos Cove.

Polperro Tidal Pool - A tidal pool cut into the rock for swimming at low tide. Walk all the way down through Polperro village, to the beach, cross the beach, and climb over the hill to find the tidal pool hidden behind.


There are many fantastic gardens to visit in Cornwall. These are our favourites, starting with the closest to the barn.

Boconnoc - A private estate that's well worth a visit when there's an event or open day.

Lanhydrock - National Trust house set in a wooded estate. Walk the beautiful parkland and woods, or hire bikes and cycle the family friendly cycle trails.

Cotehele - National Trust Gardens overlooking the Tamar Valley. Great walks along the valley - walk up to the riverside village of Calstock for lunch in the pub.

Lost Gardens of Heligan - Beautiful gardens with a great story. A 19th Century garden which fell in to decay and way 'lost'. The gardens were rediscovered in 1990 by Tim Smit (Eden Project) and John Willis, and restored.

National Garden Scheme - NGS opens outstanding garden, not normally accessible, for charity. Check the dates local gardens are open on the NGS website.


Restormel Castle - This castle is really hidden away, close to Lostwithiel.

Castle Dore - An Iron Age hill fort close to Fowey. Seat of the legendary King Mark of Cornwall in the 6th Century, possibly linked to the tragic love story of Tristan and Iseult, and featuring in the Daphne du Maurier novel Castle Dor.


Hayle Farm Cider - The cider is sold in shops, but it's far more fun to take the 5 minute drive over to the farm and buy from the cider makers themselves. See the ancient press where the apples are pressed through straw, in the same way it's been done since the 13th century. Taste the cider before you buy.

Lesquite Farm Organic Beef - Take the 5 minute walk over to the farm to pick up some meat for the BBQ. Organic Aberdeen Angus.

St Winnow Farm Meat - Buy beef and pork from the farm in beautiful St Winnow, next to the river Fowey.

Lostwithiel Farmers Market - Producers from within 35 miles of Lostwithiel selling their goods. Every other Friday 10:00-14:00.
