By Keith, Ann and family

Set amidst a beautiful countryside landscape, Higher Kernick Barn enjoys glorious almost wrap-around rural views near the village of Helland. Within a short drive of fabulous beaches, hot-spot resorts and famed attractions, the area is a haven for walkers, with Bodmin Moor , Saints Way and The Camel Trail on the doorstep. Access the peaceful Wenfordbridge section of The Camel Trail, just 3 minutes away, or hire bikes and pedal the 5.5 miles from Wadebridge to Padstow along this scenic level track with its stunning views of the Camel Estuary - a great adventure for ramblers and cyclists. Wadebridge, on the River Camel is eight miles away, perfect for a coffee and browse of the craft shops. The picturesque harbour at Padstow is surrounded by galleries, celebrity chef eateries and traditional inns. Polzeath Beach is great for sandcastles and the iconic cove at Port Isaac is very picturesque. Explore the coastal paths to Rock, Daymer Bay and Pentire Point, capturing the spectacular Atlantic Ocean seascape from the cliff tops. Fabulous Fowey on the Cornish Riviera is reached within a 30 minute drive. The giant biodomes of flora and fauna at The Eden Project are nearby and the cathedral city of Truro is host to cinema, theatre and retail shops. Higher Kernick Barn is a beautifully presented stable block conversion adjacent to the owners' own home. The accommodation is comfy and makes an idyllic bolthole for couples and families seeking a countryside getaway. The sitting room has squashy sofas and the kitchen has all the mod cons, with a dining table perfect for gatherings. Post swim, bathe or shower in the smart bathroom. Both bedrooms (with some restricted height) are restful; sit out on the little balcony accessed from the twin bedroom with an evening tipple or relax in the suntrap private courtyard, ideal for barbecues. There is a picnic bench in the paddock and little ones will love feeding the resident hens. A complimentary Cornish cream tea awaits your arrival and the Blisland Inn is just over 2 miles away serving delicious food and ales.

A lovely stay at Higher Kernick Barn. The place had everything we wanted and the hosts were extremely helpful in recommending places to visit! The surroundings are perfect for a restful stay and plenty of room outside for our teenage boys to throw around a rugby ball. Thank you for the fresh eggs in the mornings, we very much look forward to a visit in the future.

Thank you Marie Claire and Kim for making our stay in your fantastic barn so enjoyable. The facilities are excellent and we were made to feel so welcome, although sadly we wanted to stay longer! Plenty or room for Toby to walk around the fields and so peaceful. Looking forward to seeing you again, that's for sure!

Kathryn, Kelvin and Toby

What a delightful cottage and a lovely welcome with scones cream tea and all. Loved the position of the cottage to get to places. Wonderful walks, Padstow and the highlight ‘Kneehigh’ at Heligan. Brilliantly resourced cottage. Thank you.

Absolutely wonderful! The weather was perfect - we've been very lucky! Beautiful cottage and a lovely warm welcome. Would not hesitate staying again!

Mark and Megan Bingley

We had a very enjoyable stay at Higher Kernick Barn, in spite of experiencing bad weather. The accommodation is very comfortable and cosy, with underfloor heating downstairs which was very welcoming when we arrived back. The owners go out of their way to provide a very clean, homely base. If you are lucky enough to have good weather, there is a lovely outdoor seating area with gorgeous views.
We also found it a well-positioned base for exploring many places of interest. We would highly recommend it.
