Find sanctuary in this luxury bijou barn conversion, the perfect romantic escape in the heart of the fairy tale forest of Cardinham.

The Snug is a sleek, contemporary barn conversion set on the edge of the idyllic 620 acre Cardinham Woods. Living up to its name, couples will find everything they need for a tranquil retreat away from the hustle and bustle of city life beneath the timber beams of this beautifully designed stone cottage. With miles of stunning woodland walks, horse riding, mountain biking and cycle trails on your doorstep, as well as the whimsical hiking tors of Bodmin Moor, there are a wealth of activities for those that fancy stretching their legs. Or, simply curl up with a good book by the toasty wood burner, take a lazy amble to the nearby Woods Café for a delicious homemade cake and enjoy life in the slow lane for a while.

For those that wish to explore further than the treeline, The Snug’s picturesque location is central to an abundance of Cornish towns on both the north and south coasts, providing a convenient base for exploring the expansive golden beaches of Carlyon in the south or Polzeath in the north, or discover the quaint harbour villages that are dotted all around, such as Polperro or Port Isaac.

The Snug can only be rented as part of the exclusive rental of Cardinham Barns which also includes neighbouring barns Callywith, sleeping 4, and Mill Barn, sleeping 8, offering the perfect escape within a large family gathering or special occasion. Guests will also appreciate the expansive grounds surrounding the barns and the shared use of the fantastic Wagon Barn packed with games & enormous flatscreen TV for those rainy afternoons.

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

Kitchen & Living Area

The cleverly-designed kitchen and snug living area, while suitably cosy & 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 vast 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.
