Hidden away down a quiet lane is Trenarlett Farm in the heart of rural Cornwall.  Barney's Cottage has recently been converted from a former barn into luxury accommodation. Beautifully restored with painstaking attention to detail, this wonderfully spacious cottage affords lovely views of the surrounding countryside from its large enclosed private gardens. Barney's is the perfect choice for couples looking for space and comfort in a peaceful location. Whilst independent from the farm and each other, a combination of cottages can be booked together for larger parties looking for that together holiday without being too together! The Farmhouse also offers high quality Bed and Breakfast; handy if you wish to extend your stay, or for friends/family wishing to join you for a few days.  Trenarlett Farm is in the centre of a triangle formed by the pretty villages of St Tudy, Blisland and St Breward, all roughly 1.5-2 miles away. Each has a village shop/post office and traditional friendly pub, between them serving a good variety of food, with real fires in winter. Just 10 minutes' drive from the A30 and only 5 from the Atlantic Highway (A39) you are well placed to enjoy the Moors, the stunning coast path, an endless choice of gorgeous beaches, pasties in Padstow, Doc Martin in Port Isaac or maybe the zip wire over the amazing Eden Project. Cornwall is your oyster as they say! See also Ben's Barn, Hetty's, Dickins' Cottage and The Snug. Check out additional services available via the owners.

Local Area

If ever there was a place to fully appreciate the stark beauty of the Cornish landscape, Bodmin Moor has to be it.  With endless sweeping vistas in every direction, tumbled outcrops of granite, and inviting paths and tracks to explore, this area of Cornwall is a walker's paradise.  The famous Jamaica Inn is sited here, with all its literary and historical associations.  With plenty of sheep and moorland ponies wandering freely (be sure to keep your dog under control!) you can almost imagine you have been transported back to those bygone days.  More recently, of course, the moor was used extensively for filming on the new adaptation of Poldark.  When the dashing Mr Poldark gallops across your screen, you may well be seeing the scenery of the moor in the background. A large part of the moor has been designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  This region also has its fair share of Arthurian legends, another facet which lends a mysterious air to the landscape, and an extra depth to Cornwall's rich and varied history, and of course who can forget the rumours of the Beast of Bodmin Moor? The many other attractions, including the National Trust's Lanhydrock House, the verdant and flourishing Tamar Valley, historic sites such as castles, the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, and plenty of evidence of Cornwall's mining legacy, make this area a must-see.


Beautiful property, in a lovely rural setting. Owners are on site and always there to offer advice if required. Its so good we are going back in 5 weeks time!Mrs Karen Holcombe - 7th February 2019
The best holiday cottage ever. Very welcoming hosts and lovely site.Mr Steve Veness - 29th November 2018
The property is excellent with all that is required for a perfect holiday.Mrs Andrea Gunner - 11th November 2018
Beautiful! Have stayed several times and plan to again. Mrs Wendy Hann - 14th October 2018
Fantastic property, well managed and a pleasure to go to. Mr J Chinn - 9th September 2018
This property is perfect for us as my husband can access it in his power chair and when he is walking it is flat and easy to move around. It is ideally located to access a range of places on North and South Cornish coasts and a tranquil and comfortable setting to return home to at the end of the day. Mrs Jenny Cockerill - 29th August 2018
Excellent all round.Mr Gary Brown - 12th August 2018
Spotlessly clean on arrival, gardens immaculately kept, excellent parking.Mr George Kay - 9th July 2018
Absolutely amazing, spacious and very well laid out. The enclosed huge garden perfect for both of us and our 2 dogs. Mr I Madgwick - 18th June 2018
Very comfortable & clean. Friendly, helpful owners. Delightful barn. Extremely pleasant garden. Very dog friendly.Mrs Carol Wade - 4th June 2018
Perfect!Ms J Stevens - 27th May 2018
Barneys Cottage is on Bodmin Moor, off a very quiet narrow lane. It is ideally suited for us as it is close to the Camel Trail, and Blissland with its old fashioned Pub which serves Real Ales and good food. We spend a lot of time round the coastal Bays near Padstow, as most beaches are dog friendly. Owners are more like old friends than holiday landlords. Have stayed in 2 of the cottages, and the standards in both are well above average. Have been booking our Cornish Holiday Cottages through Cornish Horizons for years. Never been disappointed.Mr Robert Blackman - 20th May 2018
Our 3rd visit to Barneys cottage and 5th to Trenarlett Farm. It is a lovely, very well equipped and luxurious cottage.Mrs T Parker - 8th April 2018
It is a lovely property and one we have used 5 times. The biggest compliment we can pay is that we have already booked for next year! We would recommend Cornish Horizons who are helpful and friendly. We would also recommend Barney's Cottage - great property and location.Mrs Andrea Gunner - 13th November 2017

This was our third visit to this property and everything was excellentMr T R England - 1st May 2017
It really was just excellent. The garden was really private at the back and dog friendly. Mr I Madgwick - 23rd April 2017

Barneys Cottage is ideally situated for the beautiful beaches and Bodmin Moor. The cottage has been tastefully converted and has everything you need for a great holiday, whatever the weather. Sophie and Mike, the owners, are lovely and very welcoming. There are several friendly pubs near by which serve great food. We would certainly recommend staying here.Mrs Linda Matthews - 5th February 2017
I was very happy that we found a company, who specialise in quality holiday cottages and who were extremely efficient and easy to deal with. One of the loveliest holiday experiences we have had, thank you.Mrs Jenny Cockerill - 17th August 2016
Excellent service, friendly people and great cottage.Mrs T Parker - 3rd April 2016
Cornish Horizons have very high standards so never be afraid to put your holiday in their hands as I have done for the last twelve years.Mr Michael Bull - 11th October 2015
Barney's Cottage is a beautiful, spacious cottage in a peaceful setting. We'd highly recommend it.Mrs L - 17th April 2015
We usually holiday in St Ives when in Cornwall so were initially a little taken aback by the remoteness of the location and the 'walls' of hedgerow that frame many of North Cornwall's roads. However, we were delighted to find that Barney's Cottage lived up to its online description. The barn's conversion has been carried out to a high spec and beautifully finished right down to the deliciously comfy giant sofas and enormous comfortable bed. Our beloved 17 year old Jack Russell passed away just before this holiday, which was booked with Millie in mind, but we know she would have approved of the under floor heating next to her little paws and safely secured back garden. If a peaceful secluded retreat is what you crave from your holiday in Cornwall, we would definitely recommend Barney's Cottage for its privacy and supreme comfort.Mrs S - 5th November 2014
