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. Situated at the end of the row of cottages, the entrance to Swallows' Barn is up a flight of wooden steps through a stable door situated on the cottage's sunny balcony. In the living area three small shuttered windows overlook the Manor's courtyard. A large window opposite overlooks the cottages' lawn area, and at the entrance, a row of windows overlooks the balcony to the paddocks, and to the rolling fields beyond. Swallows Barn with its neighbouring cottage Lambs Barn can be ideal for larger parties as it has particularly versatile accommodation which can be opened up through a co-joining door so that the two are interlinked upstairs and the shared space can then sleep ten in doubles and twin rooms.

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 its 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 Outstanding 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 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 Huntingdon stayed for 7 nights.
We have just spent a very enjoyable week staying at Swallows Barn at Trevadlock Manor. The accommodation was ideal for us and our friends consisting of a two bedroom property, with one double bed and a bedroom with two single beds. Access to the property was via a short wooden staircase. At the top of the staircase was a gate, which was ideal as we took our dog. The owners also provided a field which was fully enclosed and allowed us to exercise our dog without fear of him running off. We found the location of Trevadlock Manor ideal, being close (but not too close) to the A30, which allowed most towns to be within easy access of our base. The owners were friendly and most welcoming and I would be happy to recommend this property to anyone considering a holiday in Cornwall.
Guest from Bracknell stayed for 7 nights.
A lovely peaceful holiday, great facilities and very dog friendly. Excellent hosts and a homemade cake to welcome you.
Guest from Utrecht stayed for 7 nights.
We had a long list of places to visit, but the quiet naturel surroundings made relaxing at the cottage more appealing than driving the narrow roads of Cornwall. Simple life, sitting on the deck, with a view on the fields, with the sheep and horses, the abundance of bird life, cold British ale. What more would you want?

Guest from Saltash stayed for 7 nights.
Very peaceful, ideal for getting away from it all but conveniently placed to get around Cornwall. Owners have and are doing a fantastic renovation. Would definitely recommend it and will go there again.
Guest from Tadworth stayed for 7 nights.
We found the cottage very comfortable and relaxing and well equipped and we will consider staying again. The cottage is very central for all areas of Devon and Cornwall. Although we did not see the owners we were made very welcomed to the cottage with a short note awaiting for on arrival with a tin of homemade cakes. If you come across this cottage I would recommend that you book it.
