This property is part of our Cottages4you collection


In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


A fine example of a barn conversion finished to a good standard and offering four guests comfortable accommodation only 5 minutes from Boscastle.

These properties lie on the owners’ working mixed grassland farm, in a superb holiday location between Bodmin Moor and the north Cornwall coast. The Bull Pen (28055) and The Cow Shed (28056), have been converted from a traditional barn and are furnished and fitted to a very good standard. Both have a large kitchen/dining area, a wood burner in the living room, French doors and Juliet balcony in one double bedroom and a private, enclosed patio and garden area to the rear, ideal for morning coffee or an evening barbecue. The Hen House (28054) adjoins the owners’ farmhouse; it has a private patio area to the side to enjoy alfresco dining with country views. Boscastle is a 5-minute drive, with walks, harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants. Down the coast is Port Isaac, of TV series Doc Martin fame, where The Fisherman’s Friends sing live on the Platt on Friday summer evenings. A little further is Padstow with shops, pubs and restaurants including Rick Stein’s famous fish restaurant. From here you can take a ferry across to Rock to try the variety of watersports or walk or cycle along the Camel Trail, a haven for birdwatchers. The sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand is 4 miles. Within easy reach is horse riding, National Trust properties, the south west coastal path, golf courses at Bowood and Bude, surfing at Polzeath and Widemouth Bay. Shops, pubs and restaurants 3 miles. The Hen House (28054), The Bull Pen (28055) and The Cow Shed (28056) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    We had a wonderful stay at The Cow Shed - the cottage was immaculately presented, cosy, clean, well equipped and thoroughly relaxing. The homemade cake & welcome tray with Cornish beverages, biscuits and fruit juices were very welcoming and a delightful surprise ! Many thanks to David & Jennie for making our stay in Cornwall so perfect despite the mixed weather ! However, we enjoyed time out at Tintagel, Boscastle, Port Isaac, Padstow, Bodmin Jail and found a wonderful pub - The Port William at Trebarwith Strand - excellent views and food. We will definitely recommend to family & friends - thank you again !

    Response on behalf of the owner:- Thank you for your lovely review of one of our holiday properties. We try very hard to make our holiday accommodation like a home from home, or possibly even better so that our guests can relax without the stresses of day to day life. We look forward to welcoming your friends and family soon.

    The cottage met all our expectations in every way. We were welcomed by the owners and their lovely family. A welcome tray with drinks, farm eggs,and a beautiful Victoria sponge was a lovely touch. There was everything in the cottage that we needed to ensure a very comfortable stay and the quality and cleanliness was the very best. Jennie and David have gone to great lengths to make sure their guests could not want for anything. They even provided good weather!!!!! Thank you for a really lovely holiday and we would certainly recommend the cottage to others.

    Great holiday (could only have been improved with some more sunshine!), our second stay in the Cow Shed which has everything our family needed.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner: It was great to welcome you again to The Cowshed with your lovely family. We try to make our holiday accommodation like a home from home rather than just a rental property. We are glad the girls enjoyed playing the board games too. We look forward to seeing you again for your next holiday.
