Somerby | Luxury Self-Catering Barn | Watergate Bay, Cornwall

Embrace the vibrancy of Cornish sunsets, scent of flower-filled gardens and the warmth of flickering flames from the fireplace at this luxury self-catering cottage near Watergate Bay.

Luxury self-catering barn near Watergate Bay, north Cornwall


A Cornish stone barn which has undergone spirited renovation, Somerby combines bold colourscapes, retro furniture and cool modernity to excite, inspire and rejuvenate. Welcome the day with yoga on the lawn before brewing a pot of deep, rich coffee to enjoy on the decking as the world slowly wakes up.  Just a short distance from Watergate Bay, this luxury self-catering cottage in north Cornwall offers couples the opportunity to sup cocktails with views of peeling waves before an evening cuddled up by the roaring, open fire.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

Peppered with pillarbox red accents and retro bicycle-print wallpaper inspired by Route 32, part of the Cornish Way Cycle Route which runs straight through the peaceful hamlet setting, Somerby's spacious king-size bedroom is a rather stylish affair. The en suite, which features a monsoon rain shower set on patterned tiles, provides a luxurious Moroccan-style pampering space in rural Cornwall.


Lazy days will drift by as lovebirds enjoy gentle jaunts to the Cornish coastline or country rambles along the public footpath that runs through Somerby's garden. French doors open out from the cosy living area onto the deck; an ideal spot to enjoy the enchanting gardens where a succession of colour and interesting planting will captivate green-fingered guests. At the kind invitation of the owner, guests are welcome to explore his extended grounds in addition to Somerby's private garden space, offering a number of neat lawn areas, a sweet coppice and mini stone circle.

For Relaxation

Lashings of country air, local fodder and Cornish bubbly are amongst the best ways to relax here at Somerby. Choose to dine at The Fish House on Fistral beach, or enjoy a picnic under the fragrant fruit trees at your home-from-home - just don't forget the Pimm's! Stargazing in summer will be a dream, whilst in winter months there's nothing more snug than an evening spent fireside. Curl up on the 1970s-inspired sofa with Sunday papers in hand and slow roasting lamb in the oven, exuding scents of rosemary through the house (hand-picked from the garden, of course!).


There is parking for two cars, with an electric type 2 car charging point available. The property is well-equipped with electric hob, dishwasher, microwave, combined washer/dryer and fridge with box freezer. The owner lives in the adjacent cottage.

Style: Frank Sinatra once said "orange is the happiest colour" and Sombery epitomises this perfectly, using juicy dollops of mood-lifting mandarin and hot poker red to complement the original slate and wood floors.
