About Tracey Souter
Having spent most of my adult life in Las Vegas learning all about the restaurant/hospitality industry i moved to London in 2005 where i met my wife and when we were lucky enough to have our daughter 2 years later we decided to leave the rat race behind and follow our dream. Tracey is a Westcountry girl so we returned to her roots and fell in love with the rugged countryside and stunning coastline of North Cornwall. We haven't looked back and feel blessed to be able to live in this magical part of the country. We have found the best possible area to fully indulge our passion, food !
Tracey Souter purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Tracey Souter chose Launceston
The cottage sits adjacent to our home and in gardens of about 3/4 acre. We were drawn to this area for it's peaceful rural location but with easy access to amenities, beaches, rugged countryside walks and the ability to get to a bigger town if the need for retail therapy grabs you ! Bodmin Moor, steeped in history is right on our doorstep. We are also just off the A30 so the perfect location to explore further in to Cornwall or Devon, just across the border !
What makes this Cottage unique
Food is our passion. We grow our own fruit/vegetables and have daily fresh eggs from local chickens. Cornwall provides us with the best seafood/free range meat in the country and we use this to the best of our ability to appeal to our customers in a diverse exciting manner. If you want to have a self catering vacation, that's fine, the kitchen is well equipped with all mod cons. You could choose bed and breakfast and we will prepare a continental or full English breakfast using the best locally sourced produce. Alternatively we can provide occasional catering. Just contact us beforehand to discuss. We are here to make your holiday memorable.

Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Great converted barn, garden/spa area and hosts!
Fantastic holiday with great hosts. The spa area at the bottom of the garden as fantastic to come back to after a day of sight-seeing!
Perfect for relaxing
Tracey and Mark are the perfect hosts whose warm friendly and relaxed personnas are truly infectious and help made our second visit here even more enjoyable than the first.
We will be returning again next year and possibly before the end of this year is out!! Thank you so much.
Another great stay
Once again we had a lovely time staying at Liberty Barn Cottage. Our 4th time staying here. We look forward to it each year. The owners, Mark and Tracey are very welcoming, and look after you from the moment you arrive. We love this little cottage and everything about it. The Spa area is great and just adds to the relaxation. You must book a stay here, you will not be disappointed.
Beautiful relaxing cottage
Amazing cottage, lovely hosts there with advice if needed otherwise we were left alone exactly what we needed. The spa and hot tub were fabulous especially after a long day sightseeing. If you get chance get Mark and Tracey to cook for you the food was divine and served which such enthusiasm. Also go to Coombeshead Farm an experience not to be missed. If you are thinking of booking do can't recommend it highly enough.
Had the best break away. Tracy and mark are amazing and so is the liberty barn.
Liberty Barn immediately hit all the senses, from the second you opened the door. An exceptional warm greeting met our eyes, nose and ears with all the tasteful Christmas decorations and lights, along with the rip roaring log fire and candles burning away. Classical music was also being played in the background. Truly magical. This was quickly followed by the equally warm welcome received by Tracey and Mark. We were looking for a peaceful, relaxing stay and that is exactly what we got. The break was rounded off perfectly with Mark cooking a Master Chef style meal, including rack of lamb you could suck through a straw and Tracey provided a delicious chocolate fondant. I forgot to mention the welcome basket was also truly amazing,
packed with home made goodies. They are a true team and compliment each other well. I think the most poignant thing to add is that we never go back to the same residence/location twice, because we like to experience something different each time - however, for the first time ever - we have booked a return visit in the summer of 2018!!
