Emma’s cottage

This former agricultural stone barn, has been converted sympathetically to a pretty holiday cottage, retaining it’s historic features.

The kitchen is fully fitted with oak units, including integrated dishwasher and washing machine. A fan oven, halogen hob, fridge freezer and microwave ensure our guests are fully catered for. Tea, coffee, sugar are supplied together with basic condiments. There is wifi throughout the cottage.

A large comfortable lounge with TV and DVD player, leads to a dining area. Whilst there is one bedroom, with a king size bed, the barn can accommodate 4 people, as a futon/sofa bed is situated in the dining area. A fully travertine wet room completes this fabulous barn conversion. As a guest here you have your own private bbq area with sun loungers and private parking spaces for up to two cars.

If you are looking for a holiday cottage in North Cornwall then Emma’s cottage is the perfect destination. The cottage is set in a rural location, with beautiful views and you have access to the 5 acres of Ekopod. Just as relaxing but with a bit more of the creature comforts than our pods. The cottage is named after Thomas Hardy’s wife Emma Gifford whose previous suitor lived on site. Thomas Hardy’s poem ‘Face at the Casement’ was written about the site and his encounter with Emma’s suitor here.

The holiday cottage is perfect for families, couples and small groups of friends who want a base to explore the beaches and walks of North Cornwall and Bodmin. You can see Bodmin Moor from the cottage. The cottage is next to our home of the Old Vicarage so we are nearby if you need help with anything during your stay. The Market Town of Launceston is approximately fifteen minutes from the site so it is easy to stock up with groceries for your stay.
