The Wool Shed | Luxury Self-Catering | Newquay, Cornwall

The Wool Shed

Trebudannon, Newquay, Cornwall, UK

The Wool Shed is a hand-crafted home nestled in the Cornish hamlet of Trebudannon between Newquay and Watergate Bay. With a rustic-luxe interior, this former wool store has been lovingly converted into a modern-day retreat for families and couples alike. Laid-back luxury reigns in this dog-friendly holiday home; affording an indulgent self-catered escape for those seeking rejuvenation in Cornwall.


A luxury self-catering holiday retreat, if it’s rest and relaxation you crave, then The Wool Shed near Newquay offers this in abundance. With a pared-back, understated appeal, open-plan living creates a space that is bright and light-filled, complete with sinkable sofas and cosy blankets. An uplifting space in which to recline, the verdant garden that envelopes this luxury Cornish home creates an immersed in nature essence, many an hour will be spent submerged in the hot tub or alfresco cooking. If you’re seeking exploration, aside from muddy countryside walks from the doorstep, you’re just 10-minutes from the dog-friendly beaches of Watergate Bay and Mawgan Porth.


With an industrial interior design flavour, The Wool Shed gets back to basics with its hand-crafted and carefully curated interior scheme. There’s an industrial edge to the rough sawn timber and concrete accents, while age-worn leather chairs are adorned with sheepskin rugs and agricultural finds; reflecting the rural setting in which it nestles. A central woodburner sets the scene for the cosiest of winter retreats in this open-plan barn conversion, which is as much a family-friendly domain – there’s a ground floor twin room that leads directly into the garden - a luxury holiday retreat for couples; the master bedroom with spacious bathroom is designed with relaxation in mind.


Antipodean-inspired living, a wall of sliding glass barn doors embrace the indoor-outdoor theme at The Wool Shed. A private and enclosed garden, with borders brimming with botanicals, from the hot tub to the outdoor stone fire, the garden is a verdant and tranquil space for reflection. Ambient after-dark lighting creates a warm and welcoming glow, while the outdoor fire ensures that you can enjoy this space, blanket at the ready, year-round. Heading out to explore the rolling countryside on foot is a must, and as two dogs are welcome, you can also enjoy discovering many of the nearby dog-friendly beaches of Newquay and Watergate Bay.

From the owner

“It was integral to create an interior that reflected the history of the barn while retaining a home-from-home feel; a place where every day starts with indulgent lie-ins and ends cosied up around the fire.”

From the owner

I have many childhood memories of The Wool Shed. To my parents, the barn was a functional farm building - a store house and then later, a piggery. For us wild young things it was the perfect hideout; a place to construct makeshift rope swings, scrutinise the latest bug hunt finds and to daydream about horse riding victories.

When it came to breathing life back into what was a disused and forlorn shed, I wanted, in part, to recreate those carefree days. Turning the dream into reality took a huge amount of patience and perseverance - but it was well worth the effort!

Whilst tearing yourself away from the suntrap garden can be tricky, it's worthwhile heading out on foot from The Wool Shed as there are some stunning countryside and woodland walks to discover; but if you'd rather spend your time with toes in the sand you're just a stone's throw from Cornwall's finest when it comes to white sandy beaches, perfect!

Guest Testimonials

Our first Unique Homestays holiday and a truly magical visit. After 3 months of lockdown in London following Covid19 restrictions, it was exactly what we needed. We made much use of the fireplace and enjoyed watching birds build a nest in the garden. The local scenery and sunsets are beautiful! We greatly enjoyed Trevilley Farm Shop for creating delicious meals out of local produce. An amazing week and we wish we could stay longer! We will miss the linen bedding and cosy sleeps.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our week here at The Wool Shed. We´ve stayed in many cottages over the years and this is hands down the nicest. All of the little extras were very much appreciated. One of our highlights was a meal at Lusty Glaze; delicious food, great ambience and the doges were made to feel as welcome as we were! We will most definitely be back to Cornwall for another Unique Homestay in the near future.

Thank you for a great stay. The hot tub is amazing and we loved all the artwork on the walls! The decking upstairs is lovely and the fire is great. The kitchen was well stocked and we loved cooking there! We visited Watergate Bay which is fantastic and we had lots of fun exploring the caves. We look forward to coming again!

We have had a wonderful time at the Wool Shed - thank you. It is absolutely perfect and quite idyllic - a real gem! Thank you and the team for ensuring that our stay was smooth, as always!

We had a wonderful stay at The Wool Shed. The decor was a fabulous mix of traditional and trendy and there was plenty of kitchen equipment, we wanted for nothing. The bathrooms were gorgeous and we made good use of the bi- fold doors and garden as we had great weather. The bedding was top quality and altogether we had a fab stay. We’d love to come back, thank you.

We have had a great time here staying in your lovely cottage, exploring the surrounding area which is beautiful. We will be back!

We loved The Wool Shed,it was set in a lovely hamlet and the walks nearby were wonderful. Everything was perfect, the provided store cupboard essentials and the hamper were brilliant - hardly needed to shop! Would definitely come again!

Amazing decor and quality of build. Very pleased we could bring our dog to a luxury cottage as he is very well behaved and other companies have a tendency to discriminate against pets. We have had a perfect holiday and will be using your company again, thank you so very much!

We just want to say a huge thank you for sharing this wonderful house with us. Spending our minimoon here has been absolutely perfect. It is a perfect house to relax and unwind and not far from so many of the areas we wanted to visit. It´s just difficult to leave now and head back to normality.

We have had an amazing stay at The Wool Shed. Just what the doctor ordered following a mad 4 weeks! We don´t want to leave this sanctuary, we hope to return again. Thank you

The look of the property really appealed to our sense of style. The enclosed garden was great for our small dogs. We loved the remoteness, the real fire was beautiful in the evenings after a day out. The hamper was a wonderful surprise, the goodies were amazing. It was like Christmas had come early. We loved the thought of local produce being in there. We were like kiddies in a sweetie shop! It was an exceptional touch. Thank you.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at The Wool Shed. The four of us had such a wonderful week exploring the Cornwall area, it was fabulous. The cottage could not have been nicer, the welcome hamper was well thought out and we used just about every bit of it!! Thanks again and we hope to return next year.

We have had a lovely stay in your gorgeous house. I appreciate what you have done with the space, making this cottage into a beautiful hideaway! I have even nabbed a few ideas for our own renovation. I love the vision that has gone into making this place truly amazing. I didn´t want to leave, so thank you! I can´t complain about a thing and I will definitely come back!

It´s been a lovely stay here in The Wool Shed. It is a perfect place to use as a launch pad to explore fabulous beaches and walks. Unique Homestays is a very efficient and offers a friendly set up. We personally recommend the following excellent restaurants; Nathan Outlaw in Port Isaac, Fifteen in Watergate Bay, The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow and The Dining Room at Rock.

Thank you for a wonderful stay and a few days of fresh air and relaxation in a beautiful cottage. Unique Homestays never fails to provide a wonderful Cornish trip for us all.

Thank you for letting us share this amazing retreat. My partner and I have well and truly relaxed (and next time the dogs will be able to experience all that the cottage and the area has to offer). Also thank you for the welcome hamper, it was a lovely touch!

Thank you for a wonderful place to stay. We loved it here and we have definitely picked up a few design ideas. The area is beautiful and Grace the dog has fallen in love with Watergate bay. We´ll be back!

What an amazing place to stay, we have had a wonderfully relaxing few days. We are even going back with many ideas for our own renovation!

Thank you for such an amazing stay here at The Wool Shed, we have had such a fantastic week. The house is beautiful in every way possible. We were blessed with great weather and have made many wonderful memories for one of our first family holidays together.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Wool Shed, it could not have been more perfect. Please pass on our thanks to the owners for a lovely Place. And thanks to your team for a smooth and easy process.

Everything was fabulous about the property and our stay - it exceeded all our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There is nothing bad I could say.

Quirky, modern design in a younger style - perfect as we try to avoided ´dated´ looking properties. We are very into interior design and would like to see even more properties with a focus on great modern design!

I would like to say a big thank you for our great weekend. Sarah, the owner, made such a good job of the conversion! My parents are currently converting their barn in Germany so I took few pictures to give them some inspiration!

We had an absolutely fantastic stay. Sarah and Andy were so friendly and welcoming. The property was decorated and styled to such a high standard. We will definitely be recommending The Wool Shed to friends and family!
