Description

Set back from a quiet, leafy lane, surrounded by fields and a mature garden, Gam Bridge Barn offers a peaceful haven in which to unwind, yet is only 20 minutes or so to the great beaches of Trebarwith Strand, Polzeath and Daymer Bay. Sympathetically converted and extended from two traditional stone barns, to provide spacious and comfortable accommodation for four people. 

The property sits in a wooded valley close to the River Camel just a mile from the moorland village of St Breward; home of The Old Inn - a traditional Cornish pub with its slate floors, granite fireplaces and old beams and well known for its good food and drink.

The area is perfect for walkers, Bodmin Moor - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one of the film locations for Poldark - can be accessed directly on foot and the coastal path at Port Isaac is only 20 minute drive away. The Camel Trail cycle/level walking route starts a mile down the road at wenford Bridge (bikes can be hired from there) and winds its way for 18 miles along the old railway track to Padstow, via Bodmin and Wadebridge.

Exploring the rest of Cornwall is easy from Gam Bridge Barn, as both the A39 and A30 are just 4 and 9 miles away respectively, allowing access to either the rugged beauty of the North Coast in 20 minutes or the Eden Project on the South Coast in 35 minutes. Whether you are looking for peace and tranquility or an action packed time, Gam Bridge Barn is ideally located for anyone looking to make the most of all that Cornwall has to offer.

Reviews

Fabulous place to stay.

Mrs Paula B,

Great house in a wonderful quiet location.

Mr M,

Gam Bridge Barn is perfect for us and although we look at other options we always end up returning! Beautiful setting, really relaxing and lots to see within a short driving distance.

Mrs Ruth J,

We stayed in a beautiful, comfortable property that was well equipped and in a great location to be able to explore much of Cornwall. Cornish Horizons were very helpful and quick to respond. Highly recommended. We had a wonderful family holiday with lots of lovely memories.

Mr James C,

Excellent place to kick back and relax, as soon as you get there, the silence is deafening!! the gardens are beautiful. No phone signal which was a good thing.

Mr Paul S,

Stunning property with everything you could need !

Mrs Kirstin C,

What a lovely stay, we loved how it has been decorated, especially the photos everywhere. Couldn't fault the equipment and really appreciated all the information in the property folder. We feel we've seen a fraction of Cornwall, loved the visit.

Middleton family,

We very much enjoyed our stay- spotless and cosy. We enjoyed sitting by the fire and playing monopoly for hours! Our recommend things to do are: Cycling the camel trail, Go to Tintagel and walk the coastal path, Bedruthan spa.

Map

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.
