Restored using natural materials as a gesture to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty outside, this is a peaceful retreat where the only fracas could be over who savours their afternoon nap in the hammock.
Original features abound here. High vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and contemporary decor combine with contemporary touches that include a large decked terrace, a beautiful balcony and hot tub. This is no ordinary barn conversion. Beyond the architectural features that nod to a previous life, there is comfort and curiosity wherever you wander. The round sitting room with almost wraparound floor to ceiling windows will captivate everyone for a moment in time. Views down the valley to Camel estuary, the hotspot of Rock and the sea beyond will hold the gaze of even the most animated in your crew.
Making the absolute best of the views, the barn has been converted with an upside down living design. Hence the first floor is where the hub of the home. Open plan, the sitting room sits slightly lower, down a few steps from the large dining area, which connects to a fabulous kitchen. The American style fridge freezer has ample space for your local produce haul or wine delivery. The breakfast bar is the perfect perch for snaffling a quick croissant ahead of a morning’s adventure outdoors or your first dog walk of the day. Come supper time, whether you choose pre-prepared or home-cooked fare, everything you need to serve up a feast for 10 is here.
No more than 15 minutes from Padstow or Wadebridge, your secret spot in Higher Halwyn promises privacy within easy reach of fine food, basic stocks and many a fabulous beach. And definitely don’t forget your walking boots or even your bike to make the most of the Camel Trail tracing the former railway line between Padstow and Bodmin; the surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is just waiting to be explored.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Sleeping 10, there are five fabulous bedrooms as well as four fantastic bathrooms to accentuate that sense of private retreat. Four of the bedrooms are on the ground floor with a king size and three twins on offer. One of the twins has an en suite shower room and the family bathroom presents a bath with shower over. The fifth bedroom is on the first floor welcoming guests to a king size room with en suite bathroom with shower over.

Really enjoyed our stay at The Roundhouse - huge amounts of outdoor space for the kids to run around in. Stunning view and probably the best equipped kitchen of any holiday rental that we have stayed in.Mrs Rachel Lewis - 31st August 2018
There is a great view of the Camel Estuary from the property.Mr Richard Lester - 8th August 2018
This is a fantastic property, well equipped and situated perfectly for long walks and cycle rides. It is on a site with several holiday cottages, but feels completely private and secluded. We enjoyed walking to Padstow often (about 40 minutes) and cycling the trail. We would definitely return!Miss Tracey Singlehurst-Ward - 13th May 2018
Very pleased with property, exactly as described. Would definite revisit property, and use Cornish Horizons again. Mrs W.Mrs S K Woodcock - 5th November 2017
Beautiful place, scenery excellent, it was like home from home, would highly recommend to stay here. Mrs Kerry Parkes - 7th August 2017
The property was stunning, the setting was awesome and to put the icing on the cake, the weather was gloriousMr Wayne Wilson - 27th June 2017
We had a very comfortable and relaxing time at the Round House.. the views were fantastic.. the house is very well equipped and beautifully decorated. We would definitely recommend and hope to visit again . Mrs L Osmond - 30th March 2017
An amazing property that was great for a large family group. The hot tub was terrific.Mr Dave Marchant - 22nd February 2017
Adored the locations, loved the views and walks too. Visited Padstow and Newquay. We loved surfing at Watergate bay too.Miss K Shand - 11th July 2016
we had the most fantastic week at the roundhouse. Having stayed at quite a few self catering holiday cottages we were absolutely delighted with the standard of equipment and furnishings and what can I say about the view......outstanding. This was by far the best holiday we have had for years and would not hesitate in recommending this property or going back! one thing that would absolutely finish the property off is 2 gates are put across the side of the property to enclose the back garden.it looks like the fencing is newly installed and next door is fenced in. We only had pets to keep in but if you had children they could wander off! just a suggestion! Anyway I cant recommend Cornish Horizons or the Roundhouse enough and I will be doing so to all my friends!Mrs Clair Scully - 16th May 2016
Excellent service from the Cornish horizons team, was so pleased with the property and our stay. Wish I could return soon!Mr Richard Cox - 6th May 2016
All excellent - impossible to fault anything. Whole experience perfect.Mr P Warren - 20th November 2015
A fantastic holiday! We could not have asked for a better location. The house is spacious and stylish with all the comforts of home and more! We loved the hot tub and used it most evenings whilst overlooking the wonderful view. Amazing!Mrs R - 18th August 2015
Excellent property; best we have ever been in. It had everything anybody could want and although there were 10 people staying, we all had plenty of space. Hot tub was good, even in the wet and windy weather!Mr L - 9th April 2015
The Roundhouse is a fabulous family home; what makes a nice change is to have plenty of cutlery, crockery and glassware for all the guests.Mrs D - 9th April 2015
