History of the barns

Dating back to 1334 the old quarry barn in the woods on our land housed the Quarry master and the ponies and carts for the old slate stone quarry which supplied all the stone for the farm buildings and houses in Camelford.

Owl's roost, Piglet's and the Milking parlour have been newly renovated in June 2017. Owl's roost twin bedroom use to be storage for the carts and the horses were stabled downstairs. Piglet's historically listed 19th century barn conversion. The dining room and lounge were walled cubicles where the pigs lived. The kitchen was separate and that was used to store the cart. Upstairs was used to store the feed and hay. Milking parlour historically listed 18th century barn conversion. This was where the cows were milked by hand .

Great stay

  • 4 of 5

The home was very comfortable and a good location for exploring North Cornwall. The scones, jam, clotted cream and milk in the fridge were a nice, friendly touch.

Just returned after spending 4 nights at Owls Roost.

It was very well presented and very clean and the scones on arrival were a big bonus.

Lovely converted property on a quiet farm. Shops within 5 min drive. Great base to explore the rest of Cornwall.

Would highly recommend it.

Second visit to these wonderful properties and again a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Bridget and Tom are lovely hosts and were also willing to accommodate our new puppy this time. Lovely comfortable beds and luxury of ensuite bathrooms. So cosy and well equipped and pint glasses added since last stay based on previous feedback. Outstanding properties that are perfect for a getaway, true home from homes.
