About the property

Barn in Treknow, Near Tintagel Cornwall, England - Peaceful Location, 10 Minutes Walk To The Beach

Shutta Park is a tastefully converted stone barn renovated by the owner in the late eighties to a very high standard with wood beams throughout wooden doubled glazed windows, full central heating and a woodburner. Shutta Park has been a holiday cottage for a few years and the owners have made many improvements over this time. The property is on two levels with a utility room which is accessed from the parking area. You then approach the living area via a set of stairs. There are 2 large bedrooms, one double and one twin. Available is a cot, high chair and fitted stair gate. There is a large entrance hall accessed via the patio area which leads you to the 2 bedrooms, large bathroom and toilet, kitchen, living/dining room. There is a large utility room with an extra toilet and plenty of storage for walking boots and to dry and air coats etc. There is a washing machine and freezer. The property has internet (Wi-Fi) access, TV, DVD player, radio/CD player. There is ample off road parking and secure lock up facilities for bikes or surfing equipment. Outside is a patio area with bench for enjoying an evening drink and watching the evening sunsets. At the top of the drive is the garden area with summerhouse and BBQ with bench and plenty of seating to enjoy those relaxing evenings taking in the scenery. You can see the sea from the garden. Behind the garden is open fields and pasture land. Shutta Park is within easy walking distance of the coastal path and the beach at Trebarwith Strand. The local area has many great eating places including The Port William which overlooks the beach where you can enjoy a drink watching the evening sun sets and The Mill House Inn where you can enjoy a meal in their restaurant.

About Julie Sandercock

We both feel privileged to have lived in Cornwall all our lives. Julie was born and brought up in the village of Treknow and can remember as a child when the utility room of Shutta Park was being used to milk cows in by her Aunt and prior to that her Grand Mother. Clive was brought up near the Moors and lived at Altarnun.

Shutta Park was converted into a home in the late eighties where they lived until 2008. The owners now live opposite in what was the old Church in Treknow. There was a family connection also as the Church was built by Julie's late Grand Father George Climo in 1929.

We enjoy meeting new guests and welcoming them into our home and sharing our Cornish knowledge and information.

Julie Sandercock purchased this barn in 1980

Why Julie Sandercock chose North Cornwall

There was a family connection with Shutta Park as the owner's Grand Parents and then Aunt farmed there until the Seventies and it remained redundant then until planning permission was obtained to convert it into living accommodation. We love the area of Treknow as you are close to the coastal path for stunning views and walks and near to the beach at Trebarwith Strand. We enjoy many days swimming and enjoying the views, walking the beach and collecting muscles from the rocks to cook up and enjoy with a glass of wine! Trebarwith beach stretches almost a mile when the tide is out so there is plenty of space for everyone.

What makes this barn unique

We feel that we offer very competitive rates and offer excellent value for money. Shutta Park is situated within easy walking distance of the coastal path with stunning views over Trebarwith Strand and the coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a great week at Shutta Park. Julie you have a cottage to be very proud of! It's so clean and the extra touches of yummy cakes, chocolates and fresh flowers were really appreciated. Our pasty supper was wonderful, you are a good cook and wonderful hosts. We will definitely be back and will recommend you to all. We really will miss this special place!

Absolutely beautiful cottage and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Clive and Julie are lovely people, who have put a lot of love and care into the cottage. It has everything you need and is very clean and comfortable. Great location for walking and exploring the area. Such a peaceful area with The Port William Pub only a mile walk, there are fabulous views from this pub while you enjoy some great pub grub. We will definitely be back.

A lovely comfy, cosy place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely long weekend stay mid march, the property is fantastically equipped, comfy and very cosy.

Within short walking distance of the Mill House Inn and a little further to the Port William in Trebarwith - both with fantastic food.

Nice and close to the coastpath for walks - we walked to Boscastle and Port Isaac from the cottage.

Julie and Clive were great hosts, we will be back again soon!

Everything perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Julie and Clive very welcoming and Shutta Park is a gem that is clearly well looked after. There is no doubt that this is still their project long after the building work finished! The mile in the fridge and Julie's home made cake on arrival were a lovely touch making it all feel very homely. We would have no hesitation in coming back and are looking forward to it

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very kind review. Yes this is still our project even long after we started letting Shutta Park. Our business is not just about taking guests money, we like everyone to come and feel special and enjoy what was our home for many years. We certainly would very much like to welcome you back with a proper homemade Cornish pasty on offer! I will email my recipe.

Beautiful accommodation. Owners are very friendly. Everything in this accommodation is of very good quality. We especially loved the log burner in the evening, and the bed was very comfortable. We stayed over Christmas and enjoyed our time here. The place was spotless !!
