Luxury self-catering barn near Watergate Bay, north Cornwall


Somerby is a Cornish stone barn which has undergone a spirited renovation, combining bold colourscapes, luxurious furnishings and unique interior design elements to excite and inspire. Flaunting a mix of retro furniture, upcycled family heirlooms and cool modernity, the interiors at Somerby are sure to invigorate all its lucky guests. This luxury self-catering barn in North Cornwall is just a short drive to Watergate Bay, where couples can look forward to supping cocktails and watching the waves peel until sunset before an evening by Somerby's open fire.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The master bedroom is peppered with pillarbox red accessories including stripy throws and anglepoise lamps, which make bedtime reading a rather stylish affair. The bicycle-print wallpaper was inspired by Route 32 (part of the Cornish Way Cycle Route) which runs straight through Trebudannon. The en suite features a monsoon rain shower set on exotic patterned tiles, providing a sweet Moroccan-style pamper space.


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 cosier 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. 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.

The open-plan kitchen area is well-equipped which leaves time to indulge in some precious QT with your loved one, preparing delicious food and waiting for supper to cook whilst relaxing by the fire. Barbecue fans can cook up a storm on the large coal wagon grill, with a handful of locally sourced meats and vegetables easily sourced from nearby Trevilley farm shop. 

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

Head to the coast to Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant at Watergate Bay, or drive to Padstow and enjoy dinner at one the owner's favourites: Rojanos Italian. There are also a number of eateries to discover in nearby Newquay from Mexican dishes at Gilmore's to Australian kangaroo loin at Bush Pepper - there is no shortage of choice at this fun surfer's town!
