    “Charming accommodation in a good location.”

    Great hot tub which is well maintained and much enjoyed during our stay. There was only a minor problem with hot water, which was resolved. The owners are very responsive. I recommend this property if you want to explore some of Devon and Cornwall.

The property

Perfectly located for touring both Devon and Cornwall, this beautifully furnished barn conversion is set in glorious Cornish countryside, close to the village of St Mellion.

Ideal for families or couples, Old Orchard Barn offers luxury throughout in a great setting for both relaxing and sporting holidays.

Set across the ground-floor, enter the cottage into the impressive hallway linking the rooms together.

The open-plan living area is the social hub of the home, featuring a bright and airy feel with a sumptuous corner sofa, ideal for relaxing upon as you reflect on the day's events.

Cross the threshold to the kitchen, amply-equipped to inspire home-cooking, here you can utilise the range cooker, gas hob, microwave and fridge/freezer to prepare hearty meals.

Serve the fruits of your labour at the centre dining table, toasting to a long-awaited getaway with your nearest and dearest.

When the night rolls in, choose from the four tastefully presented bedrooms; there is a super-king-size with en-suite, a king-size and two further doubles.

Start the morning with a rinse in the bathroom, choosing between the bath or shower over, before heading out and wandering the beautiful surroundings.

At the rear of the cottage is the private patio and lawned area housing a Jacuzzi hot tub; just what you’ll crave after a long day of exploring.

The St Mellion International resort is only a mile away, featuring a leisure centre with swimming pools, sauna, Jacuzzi, gym, and the Elemis Day spa as well as tennis courts and, of course, the world-renowned European tour golf course.

With these superb facilities as well as a brasserie and an award-winning restaurant, you will have so much to entertain you before returning to the luxury of Old Orchard Cottage.

Crocadon Farm, a soil-centric farm with a charming restaurant at its heart that is open Friday to Sunday also lies in the villages of St Mellion.

Pentillie Estate is very close by and is recognised as a top shooting estate.

Less than 20 miles away is the glorious Cornish coastline, where you can spend an afternoon meandering the coastline and get involved with Cornwall's favourite pastime of surfing or swimming in the clear waters.

Guests can also visit the popular port city of Plymouth, immerse yourself in the city’s history by visiting the Mayflower Steps memorial, that marks the pilgrims setting sail in 1620 or head to Plymouth Hoe for breath-taking views across Plymouth and to see the statue of Sir Francis Drake who defeated the Spanish Armada after finishing his games of bowls on the green nearby.

Plymouth Hoe also hosts exciting events including the must-see British Firework Championship and Armed Forces Day.

Be sure to tour the waterside Barbican neighbourhood, its narrow, cobbled streets and visit the myriad of specialist shops, galleries, cafes, pubs and restaurants here.

Choose Old Orchard Barn for a special base in Cornwall.

This property can be booked together with property 1125948, to accommodate 10 guests.

About the location


Saltash 6 miles; Liskeard 11 miles; Plymouth 12 miles.

The small village of St Mellion is situated on the Devon/Cornwall border, close to Crocadon quarry, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and the St Mellion International Resort, which offers golf, leisure and spa facilities. Just 6 miles away is the town of Saltash, which is dominated by the magnificent Tamar Bridge, one of Brunel’s masterpieces of engineering. The bridge takes people from Devon to Cornwall across the Tamar River, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the town also offers a number of shops and pubs, as well as narrow streets, which rise steeply from the banks of the river. From the old quayside there are river trips up stream to Calstock, a pretty village with white cottages on a steep hillside. Here, the 120 foot giant 11-arched Calstock Railway Viaduct towers above the River Tamar and carries one of Britain’s most picturesque branch lines down to the coast. The area offers some beautiful walks and cycle routes within the locality of St Mellion, plus the exploration of both moors, Bodmin and Dartmoor and the picturesque coastal paths and beaches of North and South coasts. The city of Plymouth is within driving distance, from where there is plenty to occupy visitors, including the historic Plymouth Hoe and Barbican quayside area with cafés, shops and bistros, the National Marine Aquarium and several theatres. There is something for everyone. Cornwall has many cultural attractions with National Trust properties, such as Cotelhele House & Quay just a few miles away, or the Minnack Theatre, Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project all within easy reach. St Mellion is the perfect base for exploring both Cornwall and Devon.
