It’s all in the name. Traeth is Welsh for beach and this characterful holiday cottage has been named thus as a nod to its owner’s heritage as well as the excellent location of the property. Set in the little hamlet of Trenance on the edge of a small group of cottages, Traeth Barn is a stylishly refurbished, reverse-level barn conversion perfectly situated for your coastal holiday where your dog is most welcome too!

Lovingly-styled in chic tones of greys and blues, the spacious first-floor living room, with its distinctive apex ceiling, cosy wood-burning stove and plush Loaf sofa is a place for gathering and relaxation. With windows positioned to capture both the countryside beyond and glimpses of the sea, you’ll love to return here at the end of your days out exploring.

Dog-friendly all year round, Mawgan Porth Beach on the rugged North Cornish coast, is moments away. A few minutes’ walk down a private path will get you to the beach on foot. The long stretch of sand, backed by steep cliffs, is a haven for families, surfers and walkers. A selection of local cafes, beach shops and restaurants provide various dining options or head a little further afield to explore Newquay and Padstow.

We have stayed in numerous properties in Mawgan Porth and have to say that Treath Barn is an absolute stand out! Perfect location for access to the sea - yes its a steep walk down ...and especially up, but far shorter than accessing from the village and walking across long stretches of sand. The layout of the accommodation itself was perfect for us, especially being able to section off the downstairs bedroom and bathroom areas to keep wet dogs contained. The property was also equipped to a very high standard. I love to cook and usually have to 'make do' without weighing scales, baking tins, rolling pins etc...but not here - Treath's kitchen was just like a home from home. Finally I must commend the beautiful furnishings, a squishy, luxurious, wonderful sofa, lovely wall art and decorative touches, and some quality cook books and reading material to boot! Wonderful. We'll definitely be back.

Ms C,

Another wonderful stay at Traeth Barn. It has all the comforts of home in a lovely part of Mawgan Porth. The House is looked after to a very high standard, clean and provides all you could wish for and more like a Sonos system and Netflix. The walk to the beach is wonderful but be warned it is a very steep hill and it also means that you are at the quieter end of Mawgan Porth beach so plenty of room to spread out. We would highly recommend Traeth Barn and Cornish Horizons!

Mrs R,

Lovely cottage in a great location

Mrs W,

Really lovely property in a great location would definitely rent again. Comfortable and clean, really couldn’t fault this place at all! Five stars!

Mrs R,

Treath Barn is a beautiful barn conversion - it felt like home. The open plan living area has everything you need and is comfortable (the loaf sofa a big plus). The kitchen is well equipped with washing machine and dishwasher plus an nespresso coffee machine (another big plus). The views are lovely and spending time sitting in the picture window was a favorite of mine. The bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely, clean and comfortable with plenty of storage space. The walk to the beach/village centre from the Barn is lovely - it is hilly so great exercise. Will definitely plan to visit and stay here again.

Mrs K,


Mawgan Porth is a fantastic destination for that timeless seaside holiday.  With a fish and chip shop, pub, restaurants, pitch and putt, village shop and, of course, the main attraction; the stunning, sandy beach – Mawgan Porth ticks all the boxes.  Whilst this beach-side village provides all the essentials for a traditional bucket-and-spade holiday, the modern extras are the icing on the cake.  The surfing at Mawgan Porth is superb with Kingsurf Surf School based on the beach.  Newquay is just down the road proving loads of activities for the family and also nightlife.  The food scene is booming in this part of Cornwall; with Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth based just a few miles along the coast in Padstow.  The thrill-seekers are also perfectly placed for achieving their adrenaline kicks with Watergate Bay's Extreme Academy a couple of minutes' drive offering amongst other activities; surfing, kite buggying, landboarding and kitesurfing.  There is a golf course just outside the village and Newquay's small airport is only a couple of miles away, and with flights from London, Exeter, Birmingham, Leeds and more destinations it couldn't be easier to enjoy a holiday in this perfect spot.
