The Granary

Cornwall, Britain

A stylish courtyard cottage & studio with garden and a millstream in an idyllic hamlet, for families or couples - bring the dog for yomps


4 beds


3 bedrooms


Sleeps 6


Swing off the road to Newquay, through the sheltered Lappa Valley, to a lovely hamlet with a 1630s watermill and trout-filled stream – beautiful at any time of year. The trains that once trundled past are now silent: ducks and geese quack around the poppy-lined pond and deer drink from the stream. Lovely to sit out after a day’s surfing or cycling, listening to the ice cubes clink while kids play hide-and-seek in the tree-filled garden. Colours are stunning in spring and autumn, and in winter – just as special – you can take your tipple on leather sofas by a cosy log-burner. The raftered, open-plan living room is upstairs, while bedrooms and bathroom are below, all stripped wood and mint-green ceiling beams; the twin has a huge fireplace. Rupert and Nadia fell for this spot after many a cycle ride – the Bodmin to Truro bike path via Padstow passes by. There are farm shops, pubs and cream teas; Newquay and Crantock Beach are minutes away (buckets, spades, wind-breaker provided) and Cornwall’s myriad gardens. And across the courtyard, past the mill wheel, is The Bowgie, a studio for two – both are super dog-friendly.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Nadia & Rupert Ridout-Jamieson

  • We have one acre of grounds to walk the dog in, have a BBQ in the “secret” garden on the old disused Newquay to Sheppard’s train track
  • Crantock beach is only 4 miles to the west, park in the NT car park and enjoy the dunes and vistas whilst walking the dog
  • The Plume of feathers in Mitchell is 3.5 miles or just 10 Mins. It is traditional a Coaching Inn with a separate well executed spacious modern dining area, which has a convivial atmosphere and reasonable food. Can get busy so worth booking on 01872 510387
  • Jamie Oliver’s 15 restaurant is at Watergate Bay: Tip if your are fly driving have a long lunch before heading up the hill to the airport
  • The Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow is 15 miles or 20 Mins away, Tip: start the cycle in Wadebridge (bike hire available) and have lunch in Padstow, amble back in the afternoon
  • The Eden project is only 15 miles or 20 mins away; Tip: go in spring when the bulbs are out, then treat yourself in the warm Biomes
