Follow the leafy lanes of North Cornwall to the peaceful hamlet of Tredinnick just moments from the beauty of the coastline. The Milk Shed was once a forgotten farm barn that has been wonderfully transformed to offer luxury spacious accommodation for four guests within two stylish bedrooms, a contemporary bathroom and open plan living, dining and kitchen space. An established enclosed garden with stone terrace and grassed lawn welcomes lazy summer days and al fresco dining. The Milk Shed is perfectly located to explore the North Cornish coast from the buzzing harbour town of Padstow, the golden sand beaches including Polzeath, Harlyn and Constantine, the market town of Wadebridge and the breathtaking Camel Estuary linking Rock and Padstow.

The Property

The Milk Shed offers an enclosed garden setting as part of the beautiful Tredinnick Farm Barns which have been thoughtfully positioned and landscaped. Once inside, the high vaulted ceiling offers a welcoming ambiance as you step into the open plan kitchen and dining space. The kitchen is fully fitted and well equipped with all you could need to enjoy some Cornish inspired self catering whilst the large wooden dining table is as perfect for afternoon tea as a celebratory dinner. Lead into the living area and sink into comfortable sofas after a day beside-the-sea, enjoy a family board game or light the log burner in the cooler months and relax with an old favourite film. The fresh neutral colours of the ground floor are punctuated with vibrant oranges and greens adding to the country cottage chic style. The family bathroom is located on the ground floor offering a contemporary haven for a holiday pamper with deep bath and over the bath shower. Bedroom one is located at the gable end of the ground floor with a king sized bed and ample storage. Climb the hand crafted wooden staircase to the first floor where bedroom two offers twin beds.

We were delighted to be the first occupants of The Milk Shed.  It has been finished to a very high quality and has all the necessary essentials to make it a great place for self catering. Congratulations to the owners, they really have gone the extra mile to make this a special place to stay.

From the ground floor rooms, open up the patio doors to the attractive terraced garden which wraps around the barn. Flower beds brim with colour and fragrance in the warmer months and the grassed lawn is a safe haven for children to play. Dine al fresco as the sun sets at the smart all weather dining table and chairs. Follow the country lanes for an evening stroll through the hamlet or head to the coast for seaside adventures. Trevibban Mill and Winery is well worth a visit located just a very short drive away, sit out amongst the vineyards with a glass of local wine or book in for dinner at Appleton's. If walking is on the agenda then you are well placed to step out along the South West Coast path, park up at any of the headlands or beaches and take in the picture perfect seascapes. Beach days are part of any healthy Cornish timetable, head South of the Camel Estuary to the beaches of Trevone, Harlyn, Treyarnon, Constantine, Mawgan Porth and Watergate or to the North at Daymer Bay, Polzeath and up towards Trebarwith Strand. Padstow is a wonderful coastal town to explore and is now firmly on the foodie map with some of Cornwall's top restaurants including Paul Ainsworth's No.6 and Rick Stein's Seafood. 

Check into The Milk Shed for a wonderful holiday in all seasons from extended summer stays to winter escapes.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Milk Shed, the property was stunning in all aspects, decorated and furnished to a high standard and equipped with everything you could possibly want for a great holiday, the owners really ticked all the boxes and then some to make our stay so enjoyable. Situated in beautiful countryside, very quiet and peaceful yet only a short distance from the quaint town of Wadebridge, the lovely seaside resort of Padstow and the stunning breathtaking walks along the wonderful Cornish coastline. Can't wait to go again, highly recommended.

We have just had a fabulous week in February at this property. It is, by far, the best standard of self-catering accommodation we have ever stayed in, very comfortable and well equipped. The property is also in a great location with easy access to many places of interest. We left the property with many things planned for our next visit ! The Ring’s of Brentwood


Excellent place.

We were delighted to be the first occupants of The Milk Shed. It has been finished to a very high quality and has all the necessary essentials to make it a great place for self catering. The team at the Cornish Gems office provided excellent and friendly telephone support. Congratulations to the owners, they really have gone the extra mile to make this a special place to stay.
