Introduction & Approach

Glynn Barton Cottages is a converted range of farm buildings on a sloping site dating from circa 1810 with eight self-catering cottages and 2 Glamping lodges ranging from one bedroom to three bedrooms.

  • The approach to the property is via a privately owned half mile long drive three miles from Bodmin so having your own transport is a necessity. The final decent to the property on the drive is steep but turns right onto a flat tarmac car park which caters for eight cars and a separate gravel car parking space for our Store House. The car park has limited door opening space to the sides but extensive space to the rear of all cars. Store House has limited door opening space to the sides but extensive space to the rear also, however this is on a slate gravel base with an incline towards the driveway.
  • There is a light facing towards the car park which is constantly on throughout the night for access purposes.
  • From the car park there is a minor down slope where one crosses the driveway and enters the main property via a gate 100cm wide picketed gate to the front lawn for seven of the eight cottages. The lawn is edged with a flat hard bricked pathway which leads to each cottage.
  • The Store House Property is located opposite its parking space and is accessed by a 100cm wide gate with three steps up to the cottage door.
  • We have a concrete drive (with no vehicles) which takes you steeply uphill for ten meters to a flat grassed and wide path which takes you to all the animals the property has to offer.
  • The same concrete path takes you a further ten meters up hill to some of the many children’s active facilities on site.
  • The rest of the property is built onto a large steep slope.
