Otterbridge is one of 7 beautifully converted barns with brand new furnishings which now form the peaceful hamlet of Penrose Burden. It has been renovated to create the perfect retreat in a designated dark sky area with stunning views across the Camel Valley. The location provides easy access to North Cornwall coast including Port Isaac, Padstow, Rock, Boscastle and Polzeath and the cottage is perched on the very edge of the majestic Bodmin Moor which is surely one of the last completely unspoilt places in England. Its central location makes both coastlines easily accessible; the South with its long sandy beaches, historic ports, secluded creeks and the Eden Project, and the North with its dramatic cliffs, quiet coves, grand country houses and historic market towns. You can also enjoy a welcome tray of a cream tea on arrival and Organic Trevarno guest toiletries in the bathroom.
The open plan lounge/kitchen/diner is spacious and luxurious, the owners have thought of all their guests needs; there are USB charger points in all the rooms, a cosy log burner and TVs in both bedrooms so it's perfect for families or friends wishing to stay in this wonderful part of Cornwall. If you wish to book the other cottages here, there is also The Linney, Goosehill, Butterwell, Troutstream, Jingles and Snappers.
There is a fabulous local pub nearby serving great food, a well stocked local shop and Post Office and access to walks over Bodmin Moor. A short walk to the start of the Camel Trail for walking or cycling where you can find the fabulous 'Snail's Pace Café' and also close to local craft at Wenfordbridge Pottery. Cornwall's favourite attractions are all accessible - Eden, Bodmin and Wenford Railway, Lanhydrock House and Pencarrow House to name but a few.

Lovely cottage and wonderful to come back to after a days sightseeing.
Beautifully presented and spotlessly clean. The log burner was very welcome for our Christmas break. Loved it all!
Otterbridge was a fantastic cottage and really felt like home whilst we were there and them views, well they were stunning. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable.
I was astounded at the quality of the accommodation provided. The dog hamper, the superb shower, the comfortable beds, the warmth, the cleanliness, the tiny details like the butter dish! This is the perfect retreat. The welcome was so warm. Simply lovely. To be honest I am usually a bit put off by the word "luxury" as to me this can sometimes mean "un-homely" - but these cottages are a mixture of homely warmth and comfort and high end luxury. We didn't want to leave and can't wait to go again!
My partner and I spent the most wonderful week at Otterbridge cottage last month (September). After a warm welcome from Jane, we were amazed at just how much thought and detail had gone into the cottages. They are not only beautiful with the most warm and cosy feel, but attention to detail is superb, with literally everything you need set out perfectly. The cottage was also dog friendly with a super, well contained, private garden straight outside the front door and even a welcome hamper for our dog! We did not go hungry either, with a delicious cream tea waiting for us on the kitchen table upon arrival. We are regular visitors to Cornwall and Penrose Burden tops everywhere we have stayed previously. The most blissful and magical week away - to top it off we also got engaged during our stay which was just the icing on the cake :-) So it was extra special to have a luxury cottage to spend our time in. Thank you so much Jane and family for a truly fantastic week away. We hope to visit again soon. Best wishes.
This property was the best we have ever stayed in,so clean, comfortable, and the owners made us so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. Beautiful views from our cottage which was Otterbridge.
Absolutely wonderful property and hosts! We will definitely be returning!
A lovely cottage in a wonderful setting. An ideal base to explore North Cornwall.
Otterbridge is a delightful property with beautiful furnishings. There is a lovely attention to detail from cream tea and fresh flowers on arrival and supply of logs for the log burner. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Cannot fault the property. Would thoroughly recommend it to other people for the views, the property itself and peace and tranquility of location.
A really good base to see Cornwall, not far from the sea in any direction, loads of supermarkets if your going self catering, lots of free things to do and we are going back next year to the same property as we could take our dogs with us, and the landlord was very accommodating nothing was to much trouble, once again a very enjoyable holiday. Lots of walks for the dogs as where we stayed was near the Camel Trail and most pubs and cafes you can take your dog with you.
Otterbridge is a lovely apartment, spacious and modern but with lovely character. The place is very well equipped and has lovely views of the hills from the living room. The host, Jane, is very friendly and welcoming and was on hand if we needed anything. The outside area with barbecue was a real benefit and our children loved the neighbour’s black Labrador - a firm friend by the end of the week! I would highly recommend Otterbridge.
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.
