Find sanctuary in this fairytale hideaway, perfect for two

Living up to its name, couples will find everything they need for a tranquil retreat beneath the timber beams of this beautifully designed stone cottage.

The Snug is only available as part of the exclusive rental of Cardinham Barns, which includes the neighbouring Callywith (sleeping 4) and Mill Barn (sleeping 6-8). It’s the perfect hideaway for a couple to escape for a moment of calm during a large gathering or special occasion. Guests will love the expansive grounds and shared use of the fantastic games room, which is packed with books, activities and an enormous flat-screen TV for rainy afternoons.

With miles of stunning woodland walks, horse riding, mountain biking and cycle trails on the doorstep, as well as the wilds of Bodmin Moor nearby, there’s a wealth of activities for activity enthusiasts. Or for those looking for relaxation, simply curl up with a good book by the toasty wood burner, take a lazy amble to the nearby Woods Café for delicious homemade cakes and enjoy life in the slow lane for a while.

For those keen to explore further than the treeline, The Snug’s picturesque location is central to an abundance of Cornish towns on the north and south coasts. Explore the expansive golden beaches of Carlyon Bay in the south or Polzeath in the north, or discover one of Cornwall’s charming harbour villages like Polperro or Port Isaac.

Once upon a time, this modern barn conversion was a dedicated wagon store for the collection of barns on this former estate belonging to Lanhydrock. Marrying original features with contemporary improvements, The Wagon Store now serves as a dedicated games room, complete with Smart TV, Xbox One S, table football and a whole host of board games and books.

Exterior

Nestled beneath the forest canopy, next to a gently trickling stream, The Snug epitomises a cosy bolthole. Relish in the private garden and patio for al fresco breakfasts in the fresh morning air, or hot chocolates wrapped in blankets beneath the night sky. An expansive lawn and shared BBQ area provide a generous communal space for sundowners. There is also a purpose built bike store to secure your bikes after a day exploring the trails.

This perfectly self-contained barn is an idyllic bolthole for couples, wonderfully equipped with everything that could be needed for a peaceful break.

Kitchen and Living Area

The cleverly-designed kitchen and snug living area, while suitably cosy and befitting the name, are bathed in sunlight beneath a vaulted ceiling. Curl up on the love seat in front of the original crackling wood fire and get stuck into a book, or catch a film on the Smart TV.

The bright kitchen area is excellently equipped, complete with induction hob, oven, dishwasher, Illy coffee machine and more. Perch at the built-in breakfast bar for a morning coffee before heading off to explore the endless woodland.

Please note: guests with pacemakers should avoid using the induction hob as this can interfere with the device.

Bedroom with En-suite

Dive into bed after a long day of exploring the nearby coastlines to recharge for the next days’ adventures. Marvel at the great attention to detail that adds the final touches to this luxury cottage; from the striking granite-hewn sink and natural oak washstand, to the pebbled walls of the adjoining en-suite wet room.

Garden

The Snug benefits from its own tucked away garden, complete with patio and lawn. Perfectly situated to enjoy the sun throughout the day.

Shared Garden

An expansive shared garden splays out before the three barns, providing the perfect spot for lawn games and picnics. A shared BBQ area is a fantastic social hub, complete with built-in ice bucket with views of the star-scattered canopy above.

The Wagon Store (Games Room)

A fourth beautifully converted barn provides a fantastic shared games room, complete with an enormous flat screen Smart TV, Sonos wireless sound system, Xbox One S & table football. Cosy up for a movie night or a board game on a rainy day.

Parking

There is a dedicated parking area for each of the barns to the right of the main entrance gate. For those with limited mobility, it is possible to drive up to the front door of each barn, if needed. The pathway outside the barns is well lit and there’s a luggage cart on hand to help on arrival.

Cardinham Woods

Cardinham Woods is a breathtaking forest spanning 650 acres of stunning hiking, cycling and horse riding trails; a plush natural landscape to recharge and reflect and a richly diverse habitat that children will adore. Central to the woods, and just a short stroll from Cardinham Barns, sits the excellent family run Woods Café, serving delicious homemade food all year round. A wonderful children’s play park will provide hours of fun and help burn off some energy for a restful night’s sleep when returning to your woodland retreat.

We had a wonderful time, this is a beautiful place in Cardinham Woods. The barns are lovely and the surroundings are amazing. Thank you for the nice stay and for all of the recommendations. We had a really good dinner at Rick Stein’s Bistro in Padstow and at Sam’s on the Beach. Everyone was so nice to us. We felt totally comfortable here in Cornwall. Hopefully see you again!
