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


Trebudannon, Newquay, Cornwall, UK

Embrace the vibrancy of Cornish sunsets, the scent of floral gardens and the warmth from the fireplace at this luxury self-catering cottage near Watergate Bay. With uninterrupted views across verdant north Cornwall, take some well-deserved ‘me-time’ with a solo break or whisk your beloved away for a romantic sojourn (with room for your loyal pup too).


Welcome the day with yoga on the lawn before brewing a pot of rich coffee to enjoy on the decking as the world slowly wakes up. Just a short distance from Watergate Bay, fill your days with lashings of country air, local fodder and Cornish bubbly. For some romantic inspiration, stargazing in summer will be a dream, whilst in winter months there's nothing cosier than an evening spent fireside. Curl up on the 1970's-inspired sofa with fizz in hand and slow roasting lamb in the oven, exuding scents of rosemary through the house (hand-picked from the garden, of course).


A Cornish stone barn which has undergone spirited renovation, Somerby combines bold colourscapes, retro furniture and cool modernity to excite, inspire and rejuvenate. Carefully styled in an open-plan design, the living area will be a firm favourite throughout the day, offering ample space to spread out whilst still feeling homely and inviting. Peppered with pillar-box red accents and retro bicycle-print wallpaper inspired by Route 32, part of the nearby Cornish Way Cycle Route, Somerby's king-size bedroom is a dashing affair, as is the en suite's monsoon rain shower. 


Lazy days will drift by as lovebirds enjoy gentle jaunts to the coast or country rambles, while four-legged friends bound alongside with joyous abandon. The coast path is a fifteen minute drive away and possibly the most attractive spot on the north coast. Back at the cottage, French doors open out from the cosy living area onto the deck; an ideal spot to enjoy the enchanting garden with its succession of colour and interesting planting. At the kind invitation of the owner, guests are welcome to explore the extended grounds as well as the private garden space, including lawns, the coppice and mini stone circle.

From the owner

“Your troubles will soon be forgotten at Somerby. We have taken much time and pride creating a peaceful haven in our much-loved home. The wonderfully cheerful interiors and mature gardens will certainly leave you (and pampered pooches!) feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.”

From the owner

Somerby was built many centuries ago as part of a working farm that still operates, albeit on a much smaller scale, in Trebudannon today. A stone barn, it was once used as a field shelter for farm animals and has since been lovingly renovated to create a warm and welcoming self-catering homestay.

For walkers and wildlife-lovers, there are some wonderful walks right from the garden which take you out through the surrounding farm fields. On a summer’s day, the field immediately in front of Somerby is sprinkled with buttercups and is a wonderful picnic spot.

Somerby is a peaceful cottage with stunning views over the valley. Set in one and a half acres of gardens, it's fabulous for solo travellers and couples alike.

Thank you so much for a wonderfully relaxing week. I cannot believe it is over already. After around thirty visits to the North Cornish coast it always feel like returning home, but the lovely little touches here made it all the more so. Thank you for making us feel so welcome. P.S. The bed is so comfortable and it made it hard to get up in the mornings.

Fantastic place, we were in heaven! Beautiful place and we could not have asked for anything more. The owners are so friendly and helpful and made a much needed break very relaxing!

This was such a special holiday, the location is incredible and the cottage is perfect - home from home. The owners are such a kind and friendly family, and made us feel very welcome.

Excellent location, excellent hosts that couldn´t do enough for you, being offered fresh vegetables are the little things that the make the difference and make the stay even more enjoyable!

The very thoughtful owners added bread and fresh farm eggs which was fantastic and very welcome. Having a choice of coffee was also fab! The location was perfect for exploring the area, getting to the beaches and other places to walk. It was quiet and private. Enjoyed the sunny deck area and looking out over the farm and rolling countryside.

Simply lovely! The cottage more than met our expectation and the garden and views are to die for. Thank you to Anthony, Sally and Emma for making us so welcome. Bailey had a great time too!

We could not have enjoyed our stay more. The cottage is simply beautiful, it´s immaculately done, with every requirement thought of. We had the warmest of welcomes from Anthony and Sally, and we would love to come back again for another stay - its perfect!
