Who we are

Run by James, Pippa, Freddie and Max, the essence of Glynn Barton is all about family. We’ve created a whole family experience for you and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do. We very much share our home with all of our guests and have built a real home from home for everyone.

Our Cottages
& Glamping

Our cottages are a cluster of lovingly converted and restored barns where you can enjoy a luxury family holiday in Cornwall surrounded by original features in stone and slate, beautiful exposed beams and open plan living spaces. The Glamps are nestled in the trees with all mod cons and private hot tubs! The family friendly holiday cottages enjoy breath-taking views, excellent facilities and are located close to many of Cornwall’s top attractions, including the Eden Project.

Everything onsite

We know how important the facilities are when booking a child friendly holiday! We have some of the best toddler friendly and child friendly facilities onsite from soft play, toddler ride-ons, outdoor forts and a playbarn to name a few. Not to mention the indoor heated pool, hot tub, animal feeding on the farm and our locally sourced shop. Whatever your age, we’ve got you covered.

Our Local Area

We’re lucky to be set in the centre of Cornwall – an easy and quick drive to almost every attraction and beach you’d want to go to, whilst there’s also so much to do on the doorstep!

Some families have so much fun on site that they rarely leave! But if you’re looking to explore some of Cornwall, then Glynn Barton is the perfect place for you.
