Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings
We felt at home the minute we got there, very comfortable with all home comforts. The beds were lovely, and plenty of room. Everything well spaced out so didn’t fall over each other.
Owners were helpful and friendly.
Barn owls nesting next door in owners barn, so saw them most nights flying. Also sparrowhawk, buzzard, and loads of little birds too, blue tits, house sparrows, coal tits etc.
Wonderful local produce down the road too in farm shops.
Would happily return here.
We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed our stay. The barn is really spacious with beautiful views. We particularly loved the underfloor heating downstairs and all the toys which kept our 10 month old amused. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of seating.
The location is perfect to visit both coasts and there are some lovely towns and harbours to visit. We would definitely stay again!
A beautiful, very well equipped cottage which we recommend.
The cottage is lovely, very well equipped and very comfortable and the owners made us extremely welcome with a cream tea on arrival and also providing basics such as tea, coffee and milk and loo roll - so welcome after a long journey. We had our dog with us and we had permission to walk her in a wonderful field, being turned into woodland, at the end of the drive. This was excellent for quick morning and evening walks. The only reason I haven't given the condition excellent as well is that there was an unpleasant smell, which came and went, from the shower drain - probably inevitable considering the location.
I would highly recommend this rental.
Well located (once you get used to the lanes of Cornwall!), well appointed & comfortable home. No issues & no hesitation in returning or recommending.
Late August stay
Cottage is in a remote area but only about 15 drive from Fowey and Lostwithiel. Cottage itself was clean and a good size. Upstairs you have a kitchen/dinning area. Most evenings we cooked and utensils/pans were adequate. Downstairs you have 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - all very clean. Some parts did feel dusty but that is to expected from an old converted barn. The owners chickens are great fun to watch. My children loved feeding them and watching the little chicks. Value for money - spot on!.
Great Barn, Great Location, Great Host
We really enjoyed our stay at the Treganoon Round Barn, the location was brilliant as it was easy to use as a base to explore all of Cornwall.
The Barn was very comfortable and had everything we needed, a equipped kitchen, maps to help us navigate our way around as well as childrens toys.
Jenny was a brilliant host. She gave advice on where to go and checked in with us a couple of times to ensure we had everything we needed.
For those wishing to visit the delights of places such as The Eden Project, Charlestown and Fowey, this is the area for you, located on the Eastern side of St Austell. With large attractions such as the Eden Project on the outskirts of St Austell, The Lost Gardens of Heligan towards Mevagissey, and Lanhydrock National Trust House & Gardens a short drive inland it provides an ideal base for your travels. The coastal town of Fowey is a simple drive to the coast past the China Clay port of Par, offering fabulous restaurants, galleries and gift shops. Daphne du Maurier spent her later years in properties in and around Fowey.
St Austell was once the major producer of the worlds China Clay, now with cheaper foreign imports the industry is in decline but The Wheal Martyn China Clay Museum set in two former working pits depicts the countryside in years gone by. Wet weather activities could include the visitor centre at St Austell Brewery, sampling beers and ales made on the premises. The Eden Project hosts many bands throughout the season as well as featuring an Ice Rink out of season.
Bodmin was the former county town of Cornwall for many years and the only Cornish town to be recorded in the Domesday Book, which was lodged in the town's prison during the First World War. The county prison is now a museum and open to the public. It was the first prison in the country to have separate cells. The oldest part of the town is made up of mainly granite buildings clustered around the Bodmin Beacon. The Beacon is a 144 feet tall obelisk in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh Gilbert. The area around the Beacon which has woodland and traditional hay meadow was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1994. At Tregullon you are just 10 miles away from The Eden Project and 2 miles away from the National Trust's amazing Lanhydrock House.
Nearby Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwalls Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwalls highest point. The heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwalls stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families.
