Tregulland Cottage & Barn The South West

Traditional Cornish hospitality - and Britain's first indoor freshwater pool!

Tucked into the valley and just 20 minutes from the beach, Tregulland is a quaint, comfy, Cornish gem, with space for up to 22 guests. Equally perfect for a summer holiday, a winter escape in Cornwall, a corporate shindig or a flower-filled wedding, the Cottage and Barn are situated in 16 acres of grounds, with lawns and woodland, a play area and a well-stocked, one-acre lake. The architect designed indoor pool is spring fed, providing pure Cornish freshwater for a ‘wild swimming’ experience in atmospheric surroundings. Back inside, the Cottage has a super sunroom with glass walls which allow sweeping views across the valley. There’s a huge 24-seater dining table for sociable breakfasts, lunches and dinners and, when bedtime beckons, there are six luxury bedrooms, named after wild flowers, with Egyptian cotton bedlinen and en-suite bathrooms. Here, Hansgrohe waterfall showers and the delicious smelling Rosemary, Sage & Burdock signature Tregulland & Co complimentary shampoo, conditioner and hand soap supply in every bathroom typify the level of care that has been lavished on the accommodation throughout. The Barn is spacious with high, gabled ceilings and five bedrooms named after birds of prey. As well as delightful living areas, there is a map room, for planning your next adventure (or simply escaping for a quiet hour), and a cinema screen and projector.

Guest reviews

Well, what an amazing house! Immaculate detail, thought and planning have gone into making this the most ideal holiday house we have ever stayed in. We never left Tregulland all weekend - why would you need to?

Simon, London

We had a fantastic experience at Tregulland Cottage & Barn, it was a great place to stay and explore from. Really nicely decorated and furnished, comfy beds, the kitchen and dining area was really well equipped and suited for a large dinner party (we cooked a full Christmas dinner during our visit!) and the swimming pool area is fantastic.

Shaun, Weston-super-Mare

I wanted a coastal location to celebrate my 60th with family. Tregulland topped them all...spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped...sumptuous beds, great bed linen, fluffy towels and great smelling toiletries. ‘Incredible’, ‘amazing’ and ‘awesome’ were some of the comments from the group at the end of our long weekend...Thank you!

Susan, Market Harborough

I hired Tregulland for a public speaking retreat with 9 other people. To say the the location was amazing is an understatement. The pictures don't do it justice - everything is 10x prettier in real life. Not only is it very spacious with an overall calm energy, everything was very well kept...The communication with the team was very easy and whenever we had any questions, we got help immediately. Thank you so much for having us!

The Old Workshop

Within Tregulland’s beautiful grounds is the Old Workshop. Normally laid out as a games room, it can be transformed into a meeting room, a spa or a calming yoga studio. It is licensed for weddings too, and, along with the Cottage and Barn, makes an intimate and memorable setting for your special day.

Private Chef

Whether it's a one-off special celebratory meal, or breakfast, lunch and dinner during your entire stay, we can recommend a highly trained chef to come to cook and serve from your kitchen at Tregulland Cottage and Barn. A wonderful way to make your experience extra special.

    This is such a wonderful area for excellent beaches. For a change of scenery, we'd recommend:

    Widemouth Bay/Black Rock – Bude (20 mins drive)

    Connected to Black Rock Beach (dog friendly), both excellent swimming beaches with life guards in situ much of the year. Great for surfing, boogie/body boarding. You can hire or buy yourself a wetsuit, surf board or boogie board at The Beach House Surf Shop (01288 361256) (£7 for 4 hours).


    Summerleaze Beach - Bude (27 mins drive)

    Head into Bude and follow the signs for Summerleaze Beach, it’s a beautiful wide, dog friendly, golden sandy beach with a newly revamped sea pool, excellent cafes and they even have beach huts for hire.


    Crackington Haven Beach - Bude (20 mins drive)

    A beautiful beach with rock pools, stony area for those who hate sand in their sandwiches and a sandy section at low tide for those all important sand-castles or games of beach cricket. Great cliff walks, two cafes and a pub plus parking make this a perennial favourite.

    Yes, Cornwall has many wonderful places to eat. We recommend the following, all not too far from Tregulland Cottage and Barn:

    Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, Port Isaac (30 mins drive)

    Two star Michelin fish chef Nathan Outlaw has opened a quirky little place in charming Port Isaac. Their menu “celebrates small, original and delicious seafood plates. Cooked to order and served when ready”.


    Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, Padstow (45 mins drive)

    Some might say a trip to Cornwall isn't complete without a wander over to Rick Stein's, whether his infamously hard-to-reserve main restaurant, or the Brasserie and the Fish & Chip shop, which are much easier for drop-in visits.


    Porthminster Café, St. Ives (approx. 90 mins drive)

    Great for fish, sources many ingredients right from the coast path; including wild sorrel, garlic and nettle.



    Wilsey Down (5 mins drive)

    Rising Sun Inn near Altarnun (10 mins drive)

    A fantastic old-fashioned pub with local ales and an excellent chef; this pub is well worth a visit. Can cater for large groups, pre-booking essential.


    King's Head, Five Lanes (15 mins drive)

    A 15th century coaching inn. Old fashioned and charming.
