The space
Little Acorn Cottage at Trethevy Barn is your very own self catering cottage, nestled in the beautiful Inny Valley, East Cornwall and not far from the ancient town of Launceston. A very rural countryside location and identified by the Cornwall Trust for Nature Conservation as a prime site of nature conservation value in Cornwall. The Cornwall wildlife Trust refers to this area as a Cornwall County wildlife site.

Due to remote location, we have 4G to most networks but NO WiFi. Your mobile should work outside but may not inside cottage.

Once part of Trethevy Farm the owners Tony and Shirley live close by in one of the former farm buildings that has been very tastefully converted into a lovely family home.

Little Acorn Cottage and the area around offers a true Cornish countryside living experience with an abundance of wild flora and fauna for you to enjoy.

The self catering cottage can accommodate 2 people (infants welcome under 2, but please bring travel cot and all essentials required for a little one). One free allocated parking space and private access to the cottage.

There is a fully functional kitchen with dishwasher, hob, oven, extractor, fridge, breakfast bar. You will also find a large Freeview TV in the lounge area and again lovely views from the patio at the rear. The bedroom has a kingside bed with fresh bedding and towels, a chest of drawers and wardrobe is also included. A hairdryer is also available for your use. The spacious shower room has a heated towel rail and electric shower with constant hot water.

There are many traditional local Cornish pubs near by and Launceston can be reached by car within 15 minutes where you will find grocers, a choice of pubs, delicious restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and a highly regarded Fish and Chip takeaway.

For walkers and countryside lovers you are spoilt for choice when you venture out with the likes of Bodmin Moor on the doorstep (an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) featuring Brown Willy, the highest point in Cornwall and of course amazing views for miles around, Dartmoor not far in the other direction (another very important AONB).

With coastal beauty spots like Port Issac, Widemouth Bay, Tintagle & Boscastle, are no more than a 40 minute drive away there is always plenty to do and see and of course the amazing rugged North Cornwall coastline, exceptional beaches and surf.

For those who love the night sky, the area around Little Acorn Cottage is perfect for star gazing with little or no light pollution on a clear dark night the view of the stars is breath-taking and why the area close by has an international dark sky designation and one of the best places in Cornwall to enjoy this spectacle.

We look forward in meeting you soon.

Where you’ll be

South Petherwin, Launceston, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom

We moved here in 2016 and it feels like we have lived here for ever.

There is a calmness everyday and a changing landscape with an abundance of wildlife.

With most beaches under an hour away and fantastic walks across Bodmin Moor and the South West Coast path. You can always find an activity to do or just sit at home taking in the fantastic views.

We would love to share this feeling of relaxation with you.
