I cannot praise this place enough. The tranquillity, location, scenery were all amazing. I had high hopes after following Kernock Cottages for a while on Facebook, and to say we were not disappointed is an understatement. The cottage was perfect. The hosts were amazing. The welcome package for us and our dog was thoroughly appreciated. Perfect location to go out exploring Cornwall as well. We will definitely be back, to be honest we didn’t want to leave! I have already recommended this place to 3 other people! May 2022
The Roost (5* Gold) – Sleeps 10. If you’re looking for luxury cottages for groups but want a bit of breakaway space then this is a great solution. Owl Barn and Tree Barn are next door to each other, separated by a small knot garden, and are away from the other cottages. Book both together to sleep 10 of you in 5 bedrooms (all ensuite) plus cots, with plenty of space to be together when you want to, or do different things at different times.
The table in Owl Barn will seat 10, and the sitting room in Owl Barn has two 4-seater sofas, two armchairs, and two outsize beanbags, so there is plenty of room for all of you to eat and socialise together. Perfect if you want to be together, but still want your own space! Each cottage has its own hot tub – Owl Barn has a huge 8-seater hot tub (including two loungers), and Tree Barn’s seats 5-6 (including 2 loungers). The hot tub covers are lockable, so cannot be accessed accidentally by children. There is space in the car park for up to 5 cars.

What people say
The two cottages were exactly what we were looking for. Very clean, comfortable, and in a lovely location. We were well catered for, and so was our dog! When required, we received information for eating out, walks etc, and there is a full info book in the cottage. We used a local cordon bleu chef, for a meal in our cottage for a special occasion , who came recommended, which was lovely. We will definitely return in the future.
We rented all five cottages as guests of my daughter’s wedding. All of us were astounded at the high quality of the furnishings, the cleanliness and the very unexpected welcome pack! after an amazing wedding nearby we were so pleased to be able to come ‘home’ to warm and comfy beds and only the bleeting of lambs to wake us up next morning!
We stayed in Heather Barn for our summer holiday and had a fabulous time. We loved the garden best of all because it is huge and private but the cottage itself is also lovely, very clean, modern and finished to a very high standard. We had fantastic weather and some great days out as Cornwall is beautiful and there are lots of things to do and places to visit. Our best day was a family canoe trip courtesy of the Tamar Trails Centre which was really good fun. We also enjoyed the outdoor water park at Paignton and body boarding at the beautiful beaches of Holywell Bay near Newquay and Widemouth Bay at Bude.
