Bramblings is a self contained barn conversion with a high-beamed cosy sitting room for toasty evenings, separate kitchen/diner with a second sitting area, spacious bedroom with en suite and private patio for sun-baked lounging.
Bramblings is one of just two charming and stylish cottages for couples at Bolotho Barns, so there is both seclusion and great attention to detail. The two beautifully appointed converted stone barns are arranged around a courtyard, tucked away down a farm drive. The peaceful rural location is just a few minutes from the enchanting creeks of the south Cornish coast, a short drive from the surfing beaches of the north coast and several lovely village pubs are nearby.
Bramblings also comes with the comforts of a boutique hotel and a contemporary country style. It has a king-size sleigh bed with crisp linen, roll top bath, walk-in shower, oak floors, cosy woodburner and Nespresso coffee machine. Luxury soft furnishings and styling add to the relaxing and indulgent atmosphere. There is a welcome bottle of award-winning Camel Valley wine and local Kernow chocolates too. The enclosed private patio area comes with a dining area and barbecue as well as relaxing sun-loungers. We can cater for babies, with cots, highchairs, baby baths and toys provided.
An apple and cherry orchard and our two acre paddock lie just beyond the courtyard, framing a glorious view of rolling fields and woods. Guests are free to walk around our land and you may come across an occasional shy deer as well as the many wild birds who make their home here.
Bolotho Barns are located in a rural setting near to the hamlet of Killiow and just a ten minute drive from the attractive county capital of Truro with its historic streets, markets, cathedral and cultural attractions. Guests will love the rolling landscape of fields, woodlands and streams of this special place.For cyclists and walkers, the Bissoe trail is just a mile away, which gives access to the picturesque and historic Coast to Coast path (Devoran to Portreath).
Bolotho Barns is an amazingly tranquil spot for a relaxing hideaway holiday, but also the ideal base for exploring Cornwall more widely. For interesting days out, you can visit places to the north like the Eden Project, Lost Gardens of Heligan or historic Tintagel, and to the west the delights of St Ives or St Michael's Mount, all within an hour's drive. In Falmouth, just twenty minutes away, there is Pendennis castle, the National Maritime museum and amazing art galleries to discover. Or follow a literary trail with the Cornwall of Rosamunde Pilcher from Lamorna to Padstow, or Daphne Du Maurier's Cornwall in Fowey and the Helford River. All within easy reach of Bolotho. The National Trust's Trelissick Gardens is five minutes away and there are three lovely village pubs which serve excellent food nearby. Advice and recommendations can be given on a variety of local activities and restaurants.
Bolotho Barns are particularly well located for a range of water sports on both coasts, bike trails with bike hire and beautiful walks. We have a covered area with a bike rack and electric hook up for cyclists/e-bikes.
Holiday bliss - whether you are enjoying a glass of wine on the patio or snuggling up by the woodburner. How peaceful to wake up to just the sound of the birds singing. As you arrive in the courtyard you will begin to relax!
