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.
A luxury dog-friendly cottage that sleeps up to 4 + cot
Tree Barn is a light and airy cottage facing into the valley. It sleeps 4 (plus cot if required) in two double bedrooms, both with ensuite bathroom. The master bedroom has a king-size bed with oak bedside tables and chest of drawers, and a built in wardrobe. The ensuite shower room has a modern walk-in shower with glass screen, designer loo and modern basin on a washstand. The second bedroom has ziplock beds, which can be arranged either as a super-king sized double or as twin beds, with oak bedroom furniture and a built-in wardrobe. The ensuite bathroom has a bath with glass screen and shower over, designer loo and modern basin on a washstand. The bedrooms have bamboo flooring, with bedside rugs. The bathrooms have tiled floors.
The ground floor is open plan with the kitchen and dining area on one side and a comfortable sitting room on the other, with oak flooring throughout. The kitchen is fully equipped, with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, oven, ceramic hob, microwave and plenty of pots, pans, casseroles and serving dishes. Lots of windows make the cottage bright and airy and give impressive views of the surrounding countryside.
Outside, Tree Barn has a south-west facing terrace giving stunning views down the valley. There is exterior lighting, a Weber gas barbeque, outdoor furniture and a private lawn area, as well as shared landscaped gardens at the front. The hot tub (pictured below) sits on the terrace outside the cottage, and is covered with a gazebo, so you get uninterrupted views down the valley, but you won’t get wet hair if it’s raining. The hot tub covers are lockable, so cannot be accessed accidentally by children.
Tree Barn has been awarded 5* with Gold award by VisitEngland. The cottage is very dog-friendly – the garden is securely fenced, and we provide doggy welcome packs for your furry friends! We also have a bigger 6-acre secure dog-walking area (“Central Bark”), which has mown paths, benches, a loop through the woods, poo bins, solar lighting and some lovely sculptures for onsite walks. The bottom field of Central Bark also includes the valley, which is excellent rabbit-chasing territory!

Tree Barn is a great holiday cottage in Cornwall for a family.
What people say
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!
What a wonderful place to stay – we cannot recommend it enough. Everything was above our expectations. The cottage was well equipped with so many special touches . . . the bath robes, all necessary kitchen products and especially the magnifying mirrors – an essential for us females! We felt immediately welcome and at home – as did our dog! The views at Tree Barn Cottage are amazing with beautiful sunsets and so many wonderful walks nearby.
What a fabulous cottage and in the most amazing setting. The cottage was spotless and fitted out to a very high standard and I couldn’t fault the cottage – simply loved it. I was also impressed that the cottage is also very eco friendly using all low energy lights, re-cycle bins and bio mass heating. Amazing attention to detail. Our welcome pack was a very nice touch, as was the welcome pack for Sofie, our dog, who by the way loved her holiday! Top marks Kernock Cottages. If you’re looking for a quality cottage, in great countryside, handy for touring around Cornwall or just staying local and chilling out, this is the place for you. Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did.
From the moment we pulled down the drive and were greeted by the warm welcome with sausages,bacon and eggs by Beth it felt like home. There was also a welcome pack for our dog Tilly. We stayed in Tree Barn for two weeks and it was lovely. Really cannot rate these cottages high enough, by far the best we’ve ever stayed in. Martin & Nikki (stayed September 2014)
We had a very friendly and warm welcome staying at Tree Barn Cottage with our 3 big dogs. We had a trailer and lots of sailing kit with us and there was plenty space, help and advise at hand with the owners living on site. We’d recommend it to any family with or without dogs and would certainly come again if we are near Plymouth. It’s very peaceful and quiet!
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.
