Restored Cornish Barns

At Kestle Barton our holiday accommodation consists of three beautifully converted ancient barns, also a lovely old Farmhouse and Kestle Cottage, our newest addition. The architecture here has won awards but, perhaps more important to our holiday-makers, are the proper cooks’ kitchens, luxurious bathrooms and comfy beds and sofas. All the houses have access to our gardens, orchards and flower meadow, each brimming with wild life. And we have good green credentials with rainwater harvesting and under floor heating using wood chip, together with wood burning stoves throughout. All profits go towards funding the arts at Kestle Barton.

Booking is through Forever Cornwall Unique Retreats.

‘So good to be back at Kestle Barton. We live not far away but this place just soothes us so much! Thank you for a beautifully clean and welcoming house – perfect for 50th birthday. We hope to return again with dear chums who couldn’t join us this time. Walking, swimming, kayaking, exploring the meadow… pure bliss!’ (June 2022)

‘What a treat – what a way to see in New Year! It’s rained most of the week, but who cares when you’re staying here. It’s our second time at Kestle Barton and Avallen is just as lovely as the Farmhouse. Very happy to be back and to visit the Shipwrights again. We will be back!’  (Jan 2023)
