The barns which where originally livestock outbuildings, were renovated for human occupation in the 1980s. One half of Cross Cottage also used to be the local forge. Retaining much of their original charm, with slate floors and beamed ceilings, the cottages now provide a tranquil and comfortable haven for exploring North Cornwall in all weathers. Tastefully furnished, with many character features, including cosy wood-burning stoves, each has its own sitting out area as well as unspoilt views over the neighbouring fields. And with four-legged guests especially welcome, there are an abundance of walks on your doorstep.
In 2011, the final derelict barn to the left of the courtyard was converted, adding a 5* cottage option called The Roost. The Roost has been cleverly designed to provide reverse accommodation to take full advantage of the stunning views out over the fields towards the Camel Estuary and North Cornish coast. All cottages offer a very high standard of accommodation and guests findiit very difficult to leave and return to life beyond the A30.
Kate and her four-year old Labrador, Molly, live in the fourth cottage in the courtyard, Sandy Barn, and moved to St Breward in July 2016.
