About Graham and Lorraine Lay
Hi! We're Graham and Lorraine Lay and we fulfilled a lifelong dream to move to Cornwall when we bought Tredarrup Holiday Cottages near the coast of North Cornwall in January 2017. Born and brought up in London, we moved to rural Wiltshire in 1990 to bring up our children until we could finally retire from our jobs and move to the West Country. We get great personal satisfaction from always providing our guests with a superb experience, ensuring they go home with terrific memories of their time in Cornwall.

Why Graham and Lorraine Lay chose Michaelstow
We've always dreamed of living in Cornwall, having holidayed here as children ourselves and enjoyed countless family holidays with our own three children. Cornwall has its own unique identity, which it is rightly proud of, and you're never far from the sea and the stunning coastline. The north coast where we are situated is wild and rugged, rich in myth and legend, whilst the gentler south coast, popular with sailors and tourists, is also within very easy reach. Bodmin Moor in the centre of Cornwall is popular with walkers and is rich in ancient history - watch out for The Beast of Bodmin Moor!
What makes this Cottage unique
After an extensive search we consider ourselves very lucky to have found Tredarrup. With stunning views across Cornwall, the property is 400 years old and unspoilt, with an abundance of original features and thick stone walls, which all contribute to it obtaining the highest possible star rating from VisitEngland. We fell in love immediately. The original conversions of this stunning Grade 2 Listed property were very well done and we have been able to build our own improvements to make these four unique cottages a luxurious, stylish and comfortable retreat for your holiday. Having stayed in countless self-catering properties ourselves over the last 30 years these are honestly the best cottages we have seen and we hope you'll feel the same!

Fabulous place in the country
From the first moment we walked in we were awestruck by the beauty of the surroundings and the accommodations. Graham and Lorraine were incredibly welcoming and kind hosts. We were provided with eggs, home-baked bread, butter and a wonderful cake that didn’t last very long.
Thank you so much for your 5* review. We're so pleased you loved the Wagon and enjoyed exploring the beautiful gardens of Cornwall. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future.
Lovely property to stay at.
Had a lovely time, attention to detail in everything that was supplied down to gorgeous loaf of bread and a homemade cake! Scenery fantastic and a good base to see Cornwall from. Had a great time!
Thank you so much for your review. We're delighted you enjoyed your stay in Cornwall and hope we'll be able to welcome you back soon.
An amazing holiday let made up of a number of character filled barn conversations
My wife and I booked the Wagon Barn last minute for a few days looking for some peace, quiet and relaxation in the Cornish Countryside, we couldn't have booked a better location and the welcome from Graham and Lorraine was great and they couldn't have done enough for us an example being Graham showing us around the other accommodation available. The accommodation itself is decorated to a very high standard and the character and passion of the owners comes out in all aspects of the decor.
The surrounding areas of Padstow, Rock and Port Isaac are all beautiful and worth a visit especially for the food and beaches.
We will definitely be back and may even take the kids next time.
Thank you Graham and Lorraine you made our experience perfect.
Thank you so much for your 5* review! We're so pleased you enjoyed your relaxing break in the Wagon and exploring this beautiful corner of Cornwall. It was lovely to meet you both and we hope to welcome you back to Tredarrup in the future.

Tredarrup is ideally situated for exploring the nearby coast of North Cornwall and beyond. We're nestled in peaceful farmland, with fantastic views across Cornwall, but within easy reach of the Atlantic Highway - giving easy access to the numerous sandy beaches, fishing villages and moorland walks of Cornwall. St Teath, the local village, has a newsagent, grocery store and a friendly pub with good food and in the other direction is St. Tudy, with its renowned inn and restaurant featured in the Good Food Guide. Visit the sandy beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith Strand, Daymer Bay, Rock, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay. Or spend a day in the foodie mecca of Padstow, with its Seven Bays for Seven Days. Try your hand at surfing, sea kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding or coasteering at nearby Port Gaverne. Stroll around Port Isaac, famous as Port Wenn in ITV's Doc Martin, or any of the other pretty local fishing villages such as Boscastle and Port Quin. Try sailing or fishing - both sea fishing and coarse fishing are available locally. Follow in Poldark's hoofprints with a horse ride across Bodmin Moor and visit the filming locations of both the Poldark and Rosamunde Pilcher novels. Cycle the beautiful, flat and traffic-free Camel Trail, just 3 miles away from your cottage. See the birthplace of King Arthur at nearby Tintagel. Walk the vast and haunting landscape of Bodmin Moor and the stunning South West Coast Path. Only 35 minutes away is the world famous Eden Project and a little further is The Lost Gardens of Heligan. St. Ives, the Minack Theatre, Lands End and Falmouth are all easily accessed for day trips as is the beautiful North coast of neighbouring Devon. One trip is never enough which is why our guests return to this beautiful part of the world year after year.
