Book
 

Snug Barn is nestled on a hillside with stunning countryside views. With a woodburner and a beautiful wooden veranda, this warm and cosy barn will be hard to leave. The central, inland location gives you the best of both worlds; head south and watch the sunrise from the sea at Pentewen, then head north and watch it set over Fistral beach in the evening.

If that sounds too energetic, simply open a bottle of wine, put your feet up by the woodburner, and enjoy the views of rolling hills through the floor to ceiling windows. This spacious barn, with its vaulted ceilings, flows from the contemporary bedrooms, through the modern kitchen to the cosy sitting room and dining area, and on towards the French doors and terrace. With plenty of parking, pets welcome and flexible bed configuration, Snug Barn would suit families or couples alike.

We’ve just got back from an amazing week staying at Snug Barn and we really didn’t want to leave!! The barn was absolutely beautiful, very clean and very well equipped. The location was brilliant for visiting all of Cornwall and believe me we did! We’ve put an extra 1200 miles on the car! It felt like a real home from home. The beds are so comfortable with good quality bedding, the kitchen is very well equipped and the wood burner makes everything extra cosy. The view from the master bedroom is gorgeous, a wonderful way to start the day. The welcome gifts of cake and Prosecco were a wonderful touch too. We will definitely be back at Snug Barn in the future. Thank you so much.

Holidays in Mid Cornwall

Whilst Cornwall is known for its rolling coastlines and sweeping sands, some of the best and most beautiful parts of the county can be found inland. Including quaint villages and country pubs, golden fields strewn with hay bales, woodland walks with meandering streams, rocky moors and heritage mines. 

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of winding through country lanes, trees arching above and Cornish hedgerows lining either side of the twisting lanes. Deep in the countryside, you’ll find old Cornish villages, each with their individual characteristics, and usually home to the village pub and church. With interesting names and a unique history, the villages of inner Cornwall differ quite significantly to their nearby coastal villages. 

Whether it’s rural farmland, gorse and heather covered moors or mining relics, there’s an abundance of things to do and see. That said, if you do fancy a day at the beach, you’ll never be more than a short drive away from the coast wherever you choose to stay. You’ll also have the added benefit of being close to both coastlines, which whilst very different, are equally beautiful; head to the south coast and discover green hills that roll down to the shoreline, sandy coves and bays and exotic sub-tropical gardens, or explore the north coast, where you’ll find rugged cliffs hugging spectacular beaches and landscape transformed by tin and copper mining.

Things to do

Truro 

Truro is Cornwall’s only city, it’s the most southern city in Great Britain. Truro is easily accessible by Train from a number of stations in Mid Cornwall, such as Redruth, Camborne, Par, and St Austell. This direct line from London Paddington arrived in Truro in the 1860’s. With a selection of high street and boutique shops, it’s the best place to shop in Cornwall. Why not consider booking tickets for a show at The Hall for Cornwall while you’re in Cornwall?

Tehidy Country Park

Tehidy has over 9 miles of paths and 250 acres of woods and lakes to explore. Stop off at the café after your walk for a coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Tehidy was formally the estate of the Bassets, it was sold in 1915.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

The location was brilliant for visiting all of Cornwall and believe me we did! We’ve put an extra 1200 miles on the car! It felt like a real home from home. The beds are so comfortable with good quality bedding, the kitchen is very well equipped and the wood burner makes everything extra cosy.

Only 30 mins drive to Padstow, Perranporth, Fowey, and Port Issac. Perfect countryside location with a breathtaking view, great to unwind in each evening after a day exploring and coastal walks.
Perfect family getaway, catered for ages from 13 - 77 years very well. Good for people with mobility issues as on one level. Superb large garden for our dog and boys to run around. Lots of happy memories. Thank you Becky and Daniel.

A wonderful barn in a perfect location - the views are fantastic! Easy to get to many of Cornwall’s seaside towns and beaches made for a wonderful week away

Sep 2019

We had originally booked for one week, but decided to add an extra day as the property was free. This was done without any fuss by Aspect. The property is very clean, and the setting is perfect for a quiet week away from the busy city life. Daniel & Becky are the perfect hosts - always available for advice or on hand if you have a problem, but never interfere with your time in the barn. All round - perfect!

Lovely barn conversion overlooking beautiful countryside. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and comfortable - it was everything we had hoped for. A 25 minute walk to the pub and shop in the village and a 20 minute drive to Newquay. Was well located for everything we wanted to do. And a week of nothing but sunshine helped!

A beautifully appointed holiday home. Spotlessly clean, modern yet very homely barn conversion, fantastic location for exploring both North and South coast's.

Beautiful barn conversion set on a working farm, very spacious and it had that extra special feel on arrival. Homely, cosy and very comfortable, had a brilliant holiday here with my family and our young son. Very well equipped kitchen and the owners left prosecco and cake for us too which we thought was a lovely touch. Thank you for a wonderful holiday Snug Barn!

A beautiful cottage set in stunning scenery. Location wise it’s around half an hour from Newquay, St Austell, Padstow and the beautiful Charlestown, so ideally placed. Very welcoming owners - thank you for the prosecco and Victoria sponge cake!

Snug Barn is a beautiful very comfortable property. We had a lovely week with family and were made to feel very welcome the owners. They have obviously put a lot of thought & love into the property. If you want a beautiful comfortable holiday home then I would defiantly recommend Snug Barn.

Lovely property in a superb country location with amazing countryside views but only 15 minutes from town , will certainly book this property again

May 2017

We loved everything about Snug Barn, both inside and out. So much thought has gone into this property and it really was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. A perfect base for anyone visiting Cornwall, to explore all that is on offer. The owners Daniel and Becky are wonderful hosts, very friendly and welcoming, we could not have asked or wished for anything more ?? We would not hesitate in highly recommending this property to anyone who is looking for a truly wonderful Cornish experience.

We rent a lot of houses and appartements in different countries, but never had such a beautiful and lovely house like snug burn! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... We would have liked to pack it in our suitcase and take it with us!!!

Apr 2017

A wonderful place, away from the hustle and bustle, but near enough to the north and the south coast. Very cosy, very high standard property, with beautiful views of the countryside. Would definitely recommend to others. The owners are lovely people.

Apr 2017

Snug barn is a lovely family home that we found ideally located, everything we wanted to do was within 30min drive.

Aug 2016

We absolutely loved our time at Snug Barn. Very cosy and comfy and the living room was wonderful with a gorgeously comfy sofa to relax in at the end of the day. Stunning views and lovely sunsets. Wonderful kitchen and comfy beds. It was all very spacious and well presented. A lovely barn conversion that we would highly recommend.

Jul 2016

An excellent holiday property and a home-from-home. Everything you need has been provided and the comfort, decor and furnishings are above what you would expect. I am hesitating recommending this property only because other holiday makers will want to BOOK it! And that would prevent us coming back to stay again!

Apr 2016

Snug barn is an amazing spacious homely barn conversion inside and outside. Suprisenly peaceful too with 3 children who were able to find fun in every corner. We sometimes found it difficult to leave snug barn because we were so relaxed and comfortable. It is sited on a small farm, but this adds to the experience and there is no noise from this. Would 100% reccomed this to anyone!

Apr 2016

We loved staying in this property and would definitely consider staying there again. It was central to everything/where that we wanted to visit, so we never had a long drive or had to compromise on the time we spent somewhere to rush back. The property is very spacious and well spec'd out. The owner could not have been more helpful for any little questions we had, completely separate so we always had our own space and was always available to us if we needed. The house they have created from the original barn is exceptional. The recommendations of places to visit in the areas they provided were also perfect - it really showed that they love the area and the home they created. We know they have only recently started letting the property and wish them well. We would wholeheartedly recommend anyone to stay there.
