This charming luxury self-catering barn started life as a piggery before the owners bestowed upon it the gift of new life. Transformed into an idyllic coastal home, Forelle is beautifully furnished with characterful rusticity and country style throughout. Boasting easy access to some of the top surfing spots of Holywell Bay, Fistral and Perran Sands, this Cornish cottage really has it all.

Luxury self-catering family holiday cottage Cubert


Forelle is the perfect coastal self-catering home for families and couples alike. The open plan 'L'-shaped kitchen-diner opens out into the courtyard and garden beyond, whilst the 'topsy-turvy' nature of this welcoming retreat means that the sitting room maximises the far-reaching views across the orchard to the golden sand dunes of Holywell Bay. There's nothing cosier than snuggling up together watching movies after a day stomping the Cornish cliff paths.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Treating yourself to a lazy breakfast in bed whilst watching the children play in the garden through the French doors of the king-size master en suite bedroom is nothing short of wonderful. Through the open plan kitchen-diner area around the foot of the 'L' sits the cosy twin room; perfect for little ones who enjoy nattering into the small hours with no fear of disturbing grown ups! As well as the master en suite, there is also a shower room adjacent to the twin bedroom to ensure that everyone can enjoy some peaceful pampering.


The joyful abundance of wild flowers, olive trees and colourful pots which adorn the beautiful established gardens make you feel more like you are in Tuscany than Cornwall. The first floor living room opens out onto a wraparound decked balcony with glass balustrade, where far-reaching vistas and romantic sundowners can be enjoyed with nothing to disturb but the distant crashing of the waves. When the branches are heavily-laden, gather the juiciest of fruits from the ancient orchard at the bottom of the gardens - homemade crumble has never tasted so good!

For Relaxation

Forelle boasts enviable surroundings; from the tangled orchard garden to the long country walks from the doorstep and plenty of opportunities for sunny family picnics sat under the ancient fruit trees, there's something for everyone. It is just a short walk to the traditional Cornish village of Cubert where there is a beautiful Medieval church, as well as an olde worlde thatched pub serving home-cooked meals and a bevy of local ales and ciders. The surf capital of the UK is only five miles away.    


There is ample parking for up to three cars. This charming Cornish home is well-equipped with a dishwasher, oven, fridge, freezer, washing machine and underfloor heating.

Our Take

Interior Design Consultant Jess says

I actually visited this property whilst being filmed for Caroline Quentin´s ´Cornwall´ TV show, which was quite an experience! My favourite bit about Forelle is the close proximity to the beaches; just a gentle amble through the field and you´re at the seaside, idyllic!
