This beautiful property is the perfect bolthole for a couple looking for a romantic getaway, or who just want to drop out of circulation for a while, seeking a relaxing holiday in a stunning location. It is tucked away down a leafy lane in the tranquil River Camel Valley.

The Hayloft is a newly converted barn offering contemporary and stylish accommodation. The underfloor heating and woodburner will ensure visitors to The Hayloft are warm whatever the weather. Although there are extensive grounds to roam, there is also an enclosed courtyard garden exclusively for The Hayloft.

Bringing bikes or hiring them locally is highly recommended as The Hayloft 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 Hayloft 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 Hayloft 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 Hayloft is the place for you!
However, you choose to spend your holiday you are bound to make a return visit to this lovely spot.

The Hayloft was well appointed but we did find it dark in a week where the weather was mixed.

Mr J,

Lovely owners who were very helpful. The property is very handy for the camel trail which is great for walking, cycling or running. The photo makes the property look like it is on a road but it is just on a path to the owner's house, so nice and quiet. Liked the outdoor space and the ability to store our bikes in the shed.

Ms R,

We are unsure if we would like to tell everyone about the property because we would like to believe that is just ours. It was perfect.

Mr E,

The Hayloft is well equipped, beautifully furnished and very comfortable with a friendly welcome from Ruby and Jeff. It's in a quiet, secluded location backing onto a section of the Camel Trail. Recommend cycling to the Snail's Pace Cafe at Wenford Bridge for tea and cake. But also a central location good for getting to the coast, Bodmin and Padstow easily. Also recommend a visit to the Burrough Arms, just up the road. Looking forward to another stay at the Hayloft.

Mrs P,

Lovely property in a perfect location. Ideal cottage for two people. Owners very helpful and welcoming.

Mrs J,


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.
