The Old Byre

The Old Byre Cottages, Farms, Self-catering

Once a cowshed, The Old Byre is now part of a recently converted barn. Lovely views over peaceful countryside, a private patio and well equipped accommodation for four people make it the ideal holiday retreat.

The accommodation of The Old Byre comprises a kitchen/diner, sitting room, two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with twin beds and a bathroom with shower over the bath. The kitchen is well equipped with dish washer, fridge-freezer, washing machine, electric cooker and microwave oven. And there is a television and DVD player in the sitting room. All linen and electricity are provided as is central heating for cooler days. Outside and accessed directly from the kitchen is a secluded patio with outside furniture and barbecue leading onto sloping lawns. Parking is close to the Old Byre. A cot and high chair are available on request.

The Old Byre is situated in Trewidland, a small village lying in a designated area of great landscape value between Liskeard and Looe. It is an ideal base from which to explore the whole of Cornwall; Looe with its bathing beaches is only five miles away and beyond it lies the wonderful coast from Polperro to Polruan where there is a passenger ferry to Fowey.

The North Cornwall coast offering destinations like Padstow, Rock and Port Isaac is about an hour’s drive away. In contrast is the nearby city of Plymouth with the National Maritime Aquarium, theatre, museum and good shopping.

A wide choice of National Trust properties as well as the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site on Bodmin Moor means that there is no shortage of attractions for visitors to the area. Garden enthusiasts are also spoilt for choice with a wide range of gardens including the Lost Gardens of Heligan to explore.  Walkers can enjoy the challenge of the coastal footpath or Bodmin Moor while water sports enthusiasts can make the most of the surfing, swimming and fishing opportunities available in Cornwall. Golfers can test any of the four local courses including the international course at St Mellion.

Our visitors agree that The Old Byre is a peaceful and spacious base for all these activities. It is part of a converted barn which is set in an ancient farm settlement called Trehere. The barn lies down a private drive and has lovely views over open countryside.

The Old Byre is available from Easter to the end of October at rates from £250 to £500, unfortunately we cannot accept pets.
