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.
Graham and Lorraine Lay purchased this Barn in 2017
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 Barn 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!

A real gem in the Cornish countryside.
A beautiful holiday home, within easy driving distance of some of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall. Stable cottage was well equipped for a family of 4 and soooo comfortable we didn’t want to leave! Lovely touches of hotel luxury with beautiful bed linen and soft furnishings. Couldn’t of asked for more!
Totally delightful and relaxed family week
We had a wonderful week staying in Stable Cottage with our children (aged 5&7) and puppy. Lorraine and Graham were fabulous hosts and very welcoming. Little touches like the freshly baked cake and soft toy for our puppy were hugely appreciated.
The location of the properties is excellent for multiple day trips and we really enjoyed kicking back with a BBQ supper / dinner around the fire pit in the evenings, watching the sun go down over the hills.
The barn is well equiped and a great set up for families. Would highly recommend.
Thank you Lorraine and Graham for a wonderful holiday - the children have said it was "way better" than Disney last year. We'd love to come back again!
Relaxing week away
Lovely accommodation. Perfect for two couples enjoying a week away from it all with the dogs. Loved the welcome pack including a very tasty homemade cake and fresh eggs !! Great for the dogs with a good fenced meadow for exercise. Good location to get out and about. Will recommend to friends and family.
Thank you so much for your review. Stable Cottage is indeed ideal for friends travelling together as it has 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We're so glad you all enjoyed exploring this very dog-friendly part of Cornwall and we'd love to welcome you back in the future.
Fantastic property. Beautiful old stable conversion - well maintained and well appionted. Great base for touring around. First class hospitality!
Thank you Liz! It was so lovely to meet you all and we really hope to welcome you back to this special part of Cornwall again in the future.
