Tregulland Barn – Information
Tregulland Barn is a beautiful 15th century barn and granary which were found in a derelict state, and have been a real labour of love by the current owners to convert these buildings into the luxurious home they are today. Nestled in the beautiful Cornish countryside with views across Bodmin Moor, it is difficult to image a more idyllic setting. There is an abundance of wildlife here, with the only audible sounds being the birds, sheep and gentle rustle of the breeze in the trees; creating a haven of tranquillity untouched by the outside world.
Yet as you step inside Tregulland Barn and discover the spacious bespoke fitted kitchen and fabulous open plan dining room you realise this is far from being a simple country barn. This space is flooded with natural light from the dual aspect windows, with stunning views across the valley. The kitchen is equipped with state of the art facilities including an induction hob and plenty of work space on the granite work surfaces, which when coupled with the open plan dining space work particularly well for entertaining or cookery demonstrations. The sustainable ethos extends to the dining table, which has been created from the original floorboards from the cottage and a telegraph pole from the grounds for feet. The blend of old and new is evident with designer chairs around the table and vintage armchairs in front of the beautiful open fireplace with woodburning stove.
As at all of our properties, we can organise catering should you wish. Tregulland has taken the concept one step further to offer you the services of Rick Stein’s world famous “The Seafood Restaurant” from the comfort of Tregulland Barn. Rick’s son Jack is head of development at the restaurant, and has devised an exclusive six course tasting menu showcasing the best in seasonal produce with waiting staff and a sommelier on hand to make this the ideal choice for a special dining experience without having to leave home!
A doorway leads through to the Map Room, a charming space with an antique desk and a table and chairs, ideal for planning your time here. There is even a huge wipe clean map to plan your route through Devon and Cornwall and a boot bench for muddy wellies. The impressive glass and oak staircase leads off this room with a stunning piece of bespoke art work commissioned by the designed Laura Oakes depicting scenes from around the estate. The corridor has beautiful LED uplights to guide your way in the evening, and leads to the two bedrooms on the ground floor.
Goldfinch is a beautifully warm and inviting room with French doors leading onto the courtyard, making this room accessible for those with limited mobility (although not DDA compliant). There is a super king sized zip and link bed, antique walnut furniture and a particularly spacious en-suite wet room with beautiful basalt tiles, a disabled loo, a bath with handles and an open shower. Also on the ground floor, Kestrel is a cosy room with a French desk and French doors leading to the courtyard. There is a queen sized bed and a stylish en-suite shower room with basalt tiles, basin, WC and shower with a screen.
On the first floor the stunning Granary sitting room is an amazing space to unwind with friends and family. The double height gabled ceiling adds to the sense of space and the room is flooded with light thanks to the triple aspect windows, with a spectacular woodburning stove perfect for cosy evenings when the weather closes in. There are two huge sofas, rocking chairs and beanbags and a vast HD projector screen ideal for movie nights from the DVD library. A card table with chairs is provided for those who don’t fancy a film, and a giant shelving unit stocks an extensive selection of books. There is also a children’s area with a writing desk and board games for the little ones.
Back around the landing a delightful beamed hallway leads to three further bedrooms. Peregrine is a gorgeous master bedroom with a gabled double height ceiling and opulent colours and furnishings. The super king sized zip and link bed has a sumptuous velvet headboard and antique furniture adds to the decadent feel. The en-suite is just as impressive, with basalt tiles and a navy double ended roll top bath with subtle uplighters surrounding. A huge mirror sits above the bath and there is a separate shower cubicle.
Kingfisher is a calming room with soft blue tones throughout. There is a delightful mix of old and new, from the 200 year old trusses to the contemporary art work on the walls. The super king sized zip and link bed has a luxurious velvet headboard and there is an en-suite shower room with exposed beams and a shower cubicle. Barn Owl is a cosy bedroom with exposed beams and natural tones. There is a queen sized bed and an en-suite shower room, again with exposed beams and a shower cubicle.
The bedrooms all have individual thermostats to control temperature and a radio alarm clock with iPod dock. The bathrooms have high quality fittings with HansGrohe rainfall showers and toiletries from the exclusive St Kitts Herbery. Tregulland is an incredibly energy efficient home, with under floor heating, solar panels, inductions hobs, super insulation and LED lighting.
The emphasis on sustainability is most evident in the absolutely stunning indoor fresh water swimming pool, the first of its kind in the UK. It uses natural filtration to negate the need for chlorine and chemicals. At 12 x 5 metres the pool is very spacious and there is a separate children’s pool, a waterfall, a seating area and a steam room for relaxation. One wall consists of floor to ceiling doors flooding the pool with natural light whilst keeping the temperature balmy, or can be folded away perfect for hot sunny days. Slate tiles make the pool very atmospheric, particularly when swimming at night with beautiful lighting adding to the effect. The pool house is shared with Tregulland Cottage.
There is also a wood fired outdoor Dutch hot tub, ideal for sipping a glass of wine whilst star gazing; and a separate games room with darts and a table tennis table. This room also works well as a studio for fitness activities with lovely views across the valley. Again these facilities are shared with Tregulland Cottage.
The grounds at Tregulland extend to 16 acres, with a terrace with table and chairs and a landscaped garden immediately outside the property. There is also a great play area for children with a castle, pirate boat and climbing frame. From here explore a little further to discover rolling meadows with a bespoke sculpture, and a delightful woodland perfect for games of hide-and-seek. The River Inny passes through Tregulland’s grounds and provides wonderful nature spotting opportunities. A Kingfisher regularly visits here and otters use the river with a nest in Tregulland’s grounds. The one acre lake with an island is a great space to relax with a picnic or try a spot of fishing – Doris, Tregulland’s largest carp, is infamously difficult to catch! There are two resident Canada Geese who raise their goslings here every year and other ducks that have made Tregulland their own. There are many species of birds to satisfy even the most avid birdwatcher and even bats swooping around at dusk.
The setting is incredibly peaceful and tranquil, without a house, road or sign of civilisation in sight. The breathtaking views extend across the valley to the wilderness of Bodmin Moor, with the highest peak in Cornwall clearly visible. Tregulland really is a true sanctuary where your cares will melt away.
