'Shippen' may mean 'cowshed' in Old English, but this smartly-converted barn set in 75 acres of farmland has definitely shrugged off that mantle! With Cornish slate floors throughout, bespoke fitted furniture and carefully considered decor, this one-level retreat also benefits from its own patio (which sees most of the sun during the day), use of a rear shared courtyard and a stunning heated indoor swimming pool, steam room, gym and deck overlooking the countryside. Quality and comfort are the priority here, and being close to Padstow and the wilds of the North coast makes this an exceptional property to head out and explore from. It's also very dog-friendly, so bring along your pooch for some exceptional walking.


Steps lead down to the front door which opens into the living area which boasts a roaring wood-burner for when the days are a little cooler, a grey, soft-leather corner sofa for lounging and a huge flat screen TV/DVD (complete with full Sky package so you don't miss out on THAT series and for must-do film nights). Double doors swing out to a rear communal courtyard so that on warmer days you can bring the outside in. There's some fantastic artwork to be found, including a stunning piece by local artist Jethro Jackson which takes up the majority of the far wall. Cool colours bring a peaceful feel to the room, with just a hint of the sea.


The bespoke kitchen is lovely with cream cabinets, black granite work surfaces and royal blue tiling. It's fantastically equipped too for budding chefs and includes a gas hob and electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher and washer/dryer. The dining area is just a step away with a large round table, perfect for long luxurious meals. In the private patio you'll find a barbeque and a set of tables and chairs, perfect for a spot of al fresco dining.


There are three bedrooms, Bedroom 1 with super-king size bed and en suite with bath and shower. Bedroom 2 with super-king size bed and use of the family shower-room. Bedroom 3 with zip and link bed (super-king size or twin beds) and use of the family shower-room. All three have their own air conditioning and are beautifully furnished with hand-built wardrobes and units, quality linens and cosy blankets and throws.


The en suite to the master bedroom has a bath with a separate walk-in flower head shower, heated towel rail and soft-stone tiling. There is also a further shower-room with very roomy walk-in shower. Both have lots of storage space and great lighting.


Trevear Shippen is full of everything you could possibly wish for in your home away from home. Nespresso machine with Aeroccino milk frother and selection of pods, dishwasher, washer/dryer, fridge/freezer, electric oven, gas hob, microwave. TV with DVD player and full Sky package, use of an iPad mini and Sonos system. Shared use of a heated indoor infinity swimming pool and gym, swimming pool towels.

Trevear Shippen also has shared use of a stunning heated indoor swimming pool, steam room, and fantastic decking area overlooking the lush countryside. Please ensure when using the pool and steam room that children are supervised by an adult at all times.


Situated on the farm, there is a fantastic gym facility for all the onsite Trevear residents.

This all can be enjoyed by listening to the perfect gym playlist on the inbuilt speaker system.

Just a fabulous stay in a great location with amazing facilities and great hosts

We had the most wonderful stay. The cottage was just stunning and could not have been better equipped. The beds were like heaven, the cottage was spotlessly clean, the bathrooms were luxurious and the kitchen had everything we could have asked for.

Fantastic location, excellent accommodation & facilities, we had a great holiday, highly recommend.

Excellent stay in a beautiful location run by superb hosts!

The cottage is beautifully decorated and finished to a high standard. The kitchen has everything you need and we really enjoyed the little welcome box full of local produce. The bedrooms are very comfortable and good sizes. The bathrooms were excellent and filled with lovely local products.

We will be rebooking!!!
