The barns which where originally livestock outbuildings, were renovated for ‘human’ occupation in the 1980s. 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 private 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 very doorstep.
Kate and her one-year old Labrador, Molly, live in the fourth cottage in the courtyard, Sandy Barn, and moved to St Breward in July 2016. The previous owners refurbished and updated High View and Cross Cottage, ensuring each offers the most comfortable stay for guests to which Kate has added her own touches. 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. Offering a very high standard of accommodation for those looking for a getaway with a touch of luxury, its guests are finding it very difficult to leave and return to the rat race beyond the A30.
