The vine, clematis and wisteria-clad row of 19th Century stone barns at Trevadlock Manor have been converted into five light, airy cottages, with an emphasis on simple, stylish decoration and furnishing.

The largest of the five cottages and like all the others, set out in reverse style, Lambs Barn offers three bedrooms and sleeps six. Lambs Barn is ideal for even larger parties as it has particularly versatile accommodation which can be opened up with its neighbouring cottage Swallows Barn.

Trevadlock Manor is in an extremely convenient location, very easily reached by car, only a few minutes south of the A30, just west of Launceston, just 45 minutes from the M5 at Exeter. The scenery is quite breathtaking and you will be absorbed as soon as you have left the main road into the beauty of this edge of moorland location. A really central location in Cornwall, you have so much to see within easy reach. The brilliant beaches at Trebarwith Strand, Crackington Haven and Widemouth Bay are just over 30 minutes drive to the north and the quintessential Cornish harbour town of Looe is 40 minutes to the south. The wilds of Bodmin Moor are on your doorstep and Dartmoor is around 45 minutes away should you wish to cross the border.
The beautiful historic market town of Launceston lies just across the border from Devon and was once the capital of Cornwall. With rolling countryside, castle ruins and plenty of shops and nearby attractions, it’s a fantastic base for exploring North Cornwall. Launceston was the ancient capital of Cornwall and has been a market town since the time of the Normans. It still possesses a medieval south gate and castle ruins. Due to it’s position just a mile west of the River Tamar, it borders Devon and is often referred to as the 'gateway to Cornwall'. The church of St Mary Magdelene is well worth a visit for its unusual granite carvings and a ghoul is said to haunt the churchyard. There are many strange tales around this area of Cornwall. Apparently south of Launceston at Hingston Down there is buried treasure, the ghost of Dorothy Dingley has been seen many times in Botathon, and in nearby Yeolmbridge the Wild Hunt may be seen by those crossing the bridge. But those who see this twice will not live to tell the tale!
Bodmin Moor, bisected by the newly expanded A30 is home to one of Cornwall’s Areas of Oustanding Natural Beauty. Reaching a height of 1,377 feet above sea level at Brown Willy, Cornwall’s highest point, the heather covered granite moorland provides East Cornwall with the most stunning country views and rugged walks. Near Blisland you will find two of Cornwall’s stone circles, the Trippet Stones and Stripple Stone Henge and just round the corner, one end of the famous Camel Trail. The 18 mile Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths, providing a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge out to Padstow, eminently suitable for families. The National Lobster Hatchery at Padstow neighbours Rick Stein’s empire on the North Coast. The Bodmin and Wenford Railway, the first steam operated railway in Cornwall, takes in 13 miles of countryside. Also just outside Bodmin is the Camel Valley Vineyard who have been winning awards for their home grown wine for the past 20 years. The National Trust have three properties nearby: Cothele, Lanhydrock House, Trerice and Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps. Slightly further afield is the Eden Project in St Austell. Morwhellham Quay is also a fascinating place to visit, a "living" museum providing a wonderful day out.
Guest from Lydney stayed for 7 nights.
Arrived at Lamb' Barn on a rainy October afternoon after a 3 hour drive. Hosts were very welcoming and the cottage was clean and warm. On the table in the kitchen was a home made sponge cake - a thoughtful touch that helped raise morale with a first cup of tea. There was also a card as they knew it was our wedding anniversary during our stay. The cottage is dog friendly - although quite rightly not in the bedrooms - but from the condition and cleanliness of the cottage one would not have known there had ever been a dog in it. The garden is clean, tidy and fairly well fenced and there is a paddock / orchard that is fenced in order to allow dogs a bit of freedom. The location suited us perfectly as it is only about two miles from the A 30. We took in a visit to Tintagel, surfing at Polzeath and also at Watergate Bay. We also visited the Lost Gardens of Heligon and Lewtrenchard Manor. The cottage is well situated for striking out all over Cornwall and West Devon. Although the cottage is part of a barn conversion we were never aware of other guests once inside Lamb's Barn, although we met them in the communal garden area. Our children have long since flown, but there is a pleasant looking play area for children and a table tennis table for rainy afternoons. However, after arriving in the rain the weather for the rest of the week was glorious. We were sad to leave and drove home feeling we had enjoyed a wonderful break away. Very much recommended.

We had a very enjoyable stay at Lambs Barn cottage Trevadlock. On arrival we found our accommodation suitably clean and tidy with a very welcome cake and tea waiting for us. The owners Dolly and Dave were very friendly and knowledgeable of the local area. The accommodation was perfect for us a family of 5 with 3 teenagers - there was everything required to just walk in and relax. We particularly liked the outside private table space and the super comfy beds. The large games room was a bonus and kept the kids busy late into the evenings. The situation is beautiful, like a lot of Cornwall, with plenty walks in lovely countryside and a pub and shop nearby. Based midway between coasts you do have to travel for 45mins to an hour to reach beaches but we were fine with that. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lambs Barn and we would definitely stay again.

This holiday home was in a perfect location for our family. The arrival of baby lambs daily was a bonus. Dolly and David were incredibly welcoming and friendly. Beautiful farm, beautiful surroundings, we will return.

Guest from Oswestry stayed for 7 nights.
We would certainly recommend Lambs Cottage. Very comfortable. Good facilities. Good location for visiting north and south coasts and central Cornwall. The owner was attentive when needed. We were particularly pleased by the good broadband speed, which is unusual in more remote areas of Cornwall.
Guest from Helston stayed for 3 nights.
Lambs Barn was very welcoming - a cake, flowers and means to make tea. The beds are extremely comfortable and we found everything we needed. Dolly was also very welcoming and helpful. Thank you.
Guest from Crawley stayed for 7 nights.
Our stay at Lambs Barn was wonderful from arrival to departure. The cottage was comfortable, clean and had everything we could have wished for. There was even a home baked cake awaiting us. On arrival we were personally greeted by the owner who was very pleasant and helpful. We had our own area to sit outside and there was plenty of space to park the car. The directions to the cottage were very accurate and we had no trouble finding it. The cottage was located just a short five minute drive from the A30 so was ideal for travelling to different places throughout our stay. There was no traffic noise at the cottage and all you could hear was the tweeting of the local bird population and the odd tractor passing by. We have nothing but the highest of praise for Lambs Barn and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone that wants quiet, relaxing accommodation in a great location and within an hours drive of many attractions such as The Eden Project and scenic coastal villages of Looe, Polperro and Fowey. There are also supermarkets within a 15 minute drive at Launceston and Bodmin. If it Lambs Barn is available for the dates you want, we would recommend you book it - you won't regret it.
Guest from Harlow stayed for 7 nights.
We have just returned from a lovely weeks stay at Lambs Barn. Everything we required was there and the home cake cake on arrival was a lovely touch especially as it was by birthday the following day. The barn was centrally located with 45-60min drive to most places. The games rooms was a nice touch for the kids. David and dolly were also lovely and welcoming. I would totally recommend this holiday location.
Guest from Stevenage stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful comfortable and spacious cottage for a family of 5. The grounds were perfect with fields set aside for dog walking a children's play area and games room. We had a fantastic week despite the weather not being at it's best. Lambs barn was a brilliant base to come back to after a long day exploring fabulous cornwall. Our hosts were attentive, knowledgeable and friendly and made us feel very welcome.

Lamb's Barn is a cosy conversion tucked away in the countryside near Launceston. Sleeping six comfortably, it has three bedrooms, two on the lower floor and one next to the lounge. I think you might have to be a good sleeper to retire to the upper bedroom before others, as there is only a door separating you. However, this bedroom has it's own TV, so would suit children, and means you can watch a different channel if you prefer. Dolly was very welcoming and had baked an enormous cake for our arrival. The instructions and directions in the cottage were very helpful and clear. The beds were big comfortable, and the surroundings peaceful. If six were staying, and wanted to cook at the venue, I think they would struggle. There are too few pans to make a meal, and all of them big, so that even for a boiled egg you have to use massively more water than you need. This must be wasteful of gas for the proprietors. The work surface is very limited as well, but other utensils are well supplied. If you planned to use the dishwasher you would run out of crockery before it was full , so it would need to be run half empty. I expect many people would prefer to eat out anyway, but we didn't plan to do that on a big scale. I did suggest Dolly might devise some way of marking the towels for each person as they are all white, and we got in a dreadful muddle with them. We would like to have recycled more of our waste, but that was the only aspect that we found unclear, so we ended up having to bin lots of recyclables. The barn was fun to stay in, and my daughter and her little girl loved the day bed in the lounge. My granddaughter was fascinated by the stairs taking you downstairs to the bedroom. Overall, we thought it was good value for money, quiet, comfortable and clean. We would recommend this property to other visitors.
Guest from Stone stayed for 7 nights.
We stayed at Lambs Barn for 1 week at the start of Feb 2017. The cottage was lovely and clean when we arrived. We had 4 adults, 3 dogs & a baby with us and there was ample space for us all to be comfy and relaxed. The living space is open plan and has a log burner which was perfect for when we came home at the end of everyday as it rained everyday. It was lovely to come home, change out of our wet clothes and relax in front of the fire. We had a few problems whilst we were there but Dolly & David were on hand to get them sorted out quickly. We also had their delicious Lamb from their farm for tea one nice which was lovey. We would definitely return here as it suited our needs for the dogs and baby.
Guest from Nottingham stayed for 7 nights.
We had a fantastic time here & it was the perfect location to explore from. I did express my concern to the owners regarding the current way in which the interconnection between Lambs Barn and the neighbouring cottage currently operates, as we found this severely limited our privacy. The table top freezer was also missing. However, this cottage was clean, large, tastefully decorated, beautifully furnished & very well equipped.
Thank you for raising these issues. We have recently purchased Trevadlock and while we were able to undertake some upgrading for this summer we did not manage to improve the sound insulation for Lambs Barn. This is something that we will be addressing over the quieter months as we realise that it must be improved. We did have a freezer available for you and am sorry that I did not fully explain this and hope that it was not too much of a problem. I am pleased that you enjoyed your time at Trevadlock and enjoyed the surroundings.
