Welcome to paradise! Teg, meaning 'beautiful' in Cornish, is tucked away in an often-overlooked part of southeast Cornwall, and is a gorgeous, lovingly restored barn conversion is a wonderful couples escape.

Benefitting from an upside-down approach to make the most of the pretty countryside views, the immense yet warm and welcoming open plan living space encourages all worries and stresses to disappear at the doorway, a calm haven away from the hassle of everyday living.

We just love the paired back, contemporary feel of this retreat; a relaxed escape for those wishing to truly unwind, and with a pretty bedroom downstairs leading out onto the courtyard garden complete with bubbling hot tub.

Nestled in the unspoilt countryside close to the iconic Tamar Valley and Dartmoor as well as the glorious coastline of Whitsand Bay and the Rame Head Peninsula, this wonderful hideaway offers the best of both Cornish and Devon!

Living and eating

Open the front door and you'll find yourself in the stunning open-plan living space, where vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and striking whitewashed walls await. Silky-smooth wooden floors lie underfoot, and this peaceful, pared back room makes you take a deep breath and instantly relax.

To one end lies the sitting room with a gorgeous, spacious leather sofa, rattan rug and deliciously cosy wood burner. There's a Smart TV for catching up on your favourite box sets or films, but nothing beats turning the lights low and basking in the flickering rays of the wood burner, listening to your favourite tunes on the digital radio with a glass of something super-special in your hand.

Lying at the other end is the kitchen, fully equipped with everything you'll need to create romantic meals for your loved one. There's a Rangemaster cooker, fridge with freezer, dishwasher and all the other essentials, including the all-important Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine. In addition, there's a washer dryer to be found under the stairs.


Take the stairs down to the oh-so-pretty bedroom complete with a delightful wooden-framed king size bed. Swathed in luxurious bedding, linens, throws and cushions, you're guaranteed a blissful nights' sleep. A Smart TV means films in bed are a must, as are breakfasts! When you can rouse yourselves, head through the door that leads onto the sunny courtyard garden for morning coffee at the sunshine yellow table and chairs - bliss.


The bathroom leads off the bedroom and benefits from a gorgeously deep bath, perfect for long soaks, and a large walk-in shower with rainfall head. There's also a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy.

Outside space

Teg has an enclosed courtyard garden for relaxing. There's a fabulous picnic table for meals alfresco, plus a fantastic pizza oven. In addition, there is a smaller yellow table and chairs for coffee or afternoon tea and a hammock for sunny afternoon snoozes. Of course, the pièce de resistance is the bubbling hot tub, the ultimate in relaxation and oh-so-magical when watching the sun set and the stars rise - bliss!


There is plenty of off road, private parking.


Teg welcomes babies (to 12 months). A cot, highchair, selection of baby toys and stair gates can be provided on request.


Two dogs are very welcome at Teg. Please note, there is an additional fee per dog, per week or short break.


Teg has WiFi so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world, you can.

In the Area

At Teg, you're perfectly located to explore the best of both worlds, being ideally located on the Devon/Cornwall border. Not far from the market town of Tavistock, the gateway to Dartmoor, there's plenty to see and do to keep you busy whilst Cotehele, owned by the National Trust, is a wonderful Tudor house with gorgeous gardens and its own quay. The Tamar Valley itself is a must, boasting some of the most beautiful landscape in Cornwall with an extensive network of footpaths to explore with routes to suit everyone, where the remains of over 100 copper mines can be found along the river. You're also only a short drive from Dartmoor in Devon or Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, which offer a rugged, contrasting countryside ideal for walks or exploring the pretty villages that are dotted throughout the wild landscape. Whitsand Bay is a must-visit too, with incredible vistas out over the sea - perfect to explore along the South West Coastal Path. There are some lovely seaside villages to explore too such as Kingsand, Cawsand, Looe and further along to Fowey, whilst the Rame Peninsula is a must for nature lovers. For foodies, the fantastic 'field to fork' restaurant Crocadon is just a ten minute drive away, promising a mouth-watering menu which is recommended in the Michelin Guide.

Tucked away close to the Tamar Valley, our romantic, dog-friendly barn conversion for two with a hot tub promises a tranquil escape away from the world...

Lovely cottage. Safe garden for dogs. Private hot tub. Traffic can be noisy.

Teg at Trefenten was wonderful. Bigger than expected which was a bonus, the set up was fantastic, the grounds. Super dog friendly. Very comfortable and lovely owners. We will definitely book again.

Emily and Joe have an amazing property, and are the most amazing hosts. We truly didn't want to leave. We have stayed in lots of properties over the years, but this has been one of the very best!

Good location and lots of places to visit!!

Emily was an exceptionally attentive hostess and really went the extra mile to make our stay unforgettable - thank you!

A wonderful place to enjoy a relaxed stay. The cottage is lovely and the surroundings perfect.

We had such a lovely stay at Teg - a lovely cottage, a great location, a sun trap of a courtyard with a hot tub, and dog-friendly, too. A great week with lots of walks and a cosy place to come back to and relax. 10/10!

Teg exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail was exceptional. Super dog-friendly too! Great walks on the doorstep, close to beautiful beaches and a friendly local pub. Just couldn’t fault anything. Thank you for a really great week. We hope to be back!

If you want the most relaxing and peaceful break, this is the place. Wonderful quiet location, decorated and detailed for a comfortable luxurious holiday. Star gazing while relaxing in the hot tub celebrating our mini-moon was perfect.

We had a lovely week in Teg the hottest week in the UK! The owners were fantastic and caring giving us suggestions to help our dog stay cool! Teg had everything you needed plus the lovely little extras of hot tub and pizza oven. A great little place to base yourself to explore Cornwall and Devon!

Perfect little family retreat with beautiful walks around for dogs, great pubs and such lovely owners!

A lovely old barn brought to life with real flair. Atmospheric and oh so comfortable. A joy to experience.

Beautiful barn, in a lovely location to explore Cornwall - luxury features make for a perfect stay.

Really lovely space that is particularly welcoming to couples with four legged family members!

A very relaxing setting and such a high spec and tasteful accommodation. The hosts are A1 which make for a very easy break. Would highly recommend.

Our stay at Teg was fantastic. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and the cottage itself was beautiful and comfortable.

I've only been gone a week and I'm already missing it! It's located in a great place with lovely beaches and things to within driving distance and it's so quiet and peaceful there.

Cannot recommend enough!

Teg has been beautifully furnished with so much attention to detail; a real luxury retreat.

Very friendly and welcoming owners. Lovely cottage.

Absolutely fabulous cottage with wonderful decor and lovely garden. The owners who live across the way were fantastic and extraordinarily helpful. Really enjoyed our stay here and will be coming back. Teg - Paradise indeed!
