Tucked away down a leafy lane in the tranquil River Camel Valley is this little piece of Cornish heaven. The stable is a newly converted barn offering spacious, stylish accommodation. It's just divine, with high ceilings, granite worktops, funky sofas, painted wood furniture, contemporary soft furnishings and all of this overlooking extensive grounds. It is perfect for a couple or family seeking a relaxing holiday in a stunning location.

Bringing bikes or hiring them locally is highly recommended as The Stable is located right next to the Camel Trail, which offers 18 miles of off road walking and cycling. You can cycle through the old market town of Wadebridge and on to Padstow and the Camel estuary one way or inland to The Snail Pace cafe found at Wenford Bridge on Bodmin Moor. The Stable provides a secure building for storing bikes and surfboards, etc.

The grounds also include a stretch of the River Camel that is accessible to guests who can fish on the private land of The Dairy (please note that a Rod Licence for fishing needs to be purchased).

Ideally located for exploring the whole of Cornwall being only a 10-15-minute drive from the A30. So a trip to Tate St Ives is only an hour away, the Eden Project about 25 minutes and it's only a 20-minute drive to Padstow and the North Coast beaches. You are well placed to explore the rest of Cornwall and discover those special hidden places that have drawn so many to our county over the years.

The tranquil setting of The Stable is the perfect stop to relax and chill out after a busy day. So whether your perfect holiday consists of participating in a range of activities, sightseeing or a relaxing break; then The Stable is the place for you!

The Stable and its sister barns The Hayloft and The Byre make up The Dairy Barns. They have been lovingly restored to provide luxury accommodation, full of character and charm. Though totally detached and independent from each other, they can be booked together to make the perfect venue for family get-togethers and celebrations.

This discount is automatically applied and the holiday price you are quoted reflects this. If you have any questions or require full use of the property, and don't want bedroom 2 to be locked off, please call our friendly team on 01841 533331 or email cottages@cornishhorizons.co.uk for more information.

Local Area

After the open landscapes and far-reaching vistas of much of the North Coast, visiting Dunmere and nearby Cardinham will make you feel you have been transported to the kind of serene landscape that comes straight from the pages of a Tolkien novel. It's not only beautiful scenery you'll find in this area. There is plenty to do here, and with a variety of activities, you will be sure to find something to suit everyone. You can get easy access to the Camel Trail, and there are also cycle trails at Cardinham Woods (some of which are suitable for buggies as well, so everyone can enjoy them). One of the best ways to take in the scenery of the local area (forest and moorland alike) is on horseback.  Hallagenna Riding offer moorland treks, pub rides, and for experienced riders, the Poldark Trail and Jamaica Inn Trail. If you prefer a more relaxing break, you could visit The Borough Arms pub for a pint, or take a tour of the Camel Valley Vineyard, where you can sip a glass of wine grown from Cornish grapes on their terrace overlooking the vineyards and surrounding countryside. Nearby there is also Bodmin Gaol, an 18th Century prison where you can look round the museum and (if you're feeling brave!)  participate in a Ghost Walk.


Wonderful! The standard of accommodation was excellent throughout. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We loved the outside space and the peaceful location. Mrs Marion Hateley - 24th July 2017

We have had an amazing week! The Stable is such a lovely place to stay, such a beautiful cottage. Lots of lovely days on the beach, fish and chips in Padstow and a great bike ride. We all enjoyed the Eden Project and Tintagel. Thank you for making our stay so lovely.Middle family - 13th August 2016

Very easy experienceMiss Michelle Arnold - 28th September 2015
Highly recommend this property to family and friends.Mr G - 9th July 2015
We have really enjoyed our stay here, The Stable is beautiful inside and out. Perfect location to travel to many parts of Cornwall. Had some lovely walks and bike rides straight from the cottage and it has been perfect for the dog. We'd love to stay again some time in the future. Thank you.Mrs A - 13th February 2015
We have stayed in many places in Cornwall and we can safely say that his has been our favourite. Perfect location, beautiful place. The cottage is amazing and facilities are superb. It was our first holiday with our bikes and won't be our last. The Camel Trail is right on the doorstep and we enjoyed every bit of our cycles to Padstow. Thank you for a brilliant place to stay.Mr G. August - 19th January 2015
Tranquil, beautiful and spotless accommodation, where attention to detail is paramount. The owners have put a lot of work into this "let" and it shows. Everything about it is spot-on!Mr W - 7th January 2015
