The ultimate south Cornwall glamping location.

Hidden away amongst a warren of high-banked, tree-lined lanes of south Cornwall, Tremeer Farm has a beautiful location, a mile or so from the South West Coast Path and about three miles from Fowey. Owners Rob and Sara have lavished lots of love and a good measure of hard work on the transformation of Tremeer from a working farm to the beautiful luxury glamping and self-catering location it is now. They have four very comfy yurts, with wooden floors, cosy rugs, a wood-burning stove and  full-size beds with feather duvets, and a beautifully equipped barn conversion with three bedrooms, two bathrooms (one en-suite) and an ultra-large living area and kitchen – ideal for families or groups of friends (it can sleep up to nine), It's a perfect rural idyll, with board games, a play barn and of course the resident animals outside, which you’re bound to bump into during your stay – in fact you may find it hard to avoid pet Kune Kune pigs Rosie and Rollo, not to mention the clucking chickens, cute orphan spring lambs and the friendly Dexter cows in the nearby fields. There's also loads to do in the countryside around, with lots of hidden coves and stunning walks nearby, after which you can soak your tired muscles in the property's wood-fired cedar hot tub back before collecting eggs, sausages and bacon from the farmhouse for next morning's breakfast. It doesn't get much better...

The Owner Says

Our Long Barn offers the perfect location for an extended family holiday, a gathering of friends or for two families to join together.  

Alternatively, you could stay in one of our stunning 18ft yurts which are beautifully furnished with brass and iron beds, sumptuous linens and a wood burning stove to keep you cosy on those cooler nights.  They are perfect for a romantic couple but are spacious and can sleep up to 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 children. 

The yurts have their own well equipped camping kitchens which have gas camping stoves, microwaves, their own fridges and everything you should need for preparing simple camp style meals. 

Each yurt has its own firepit so you can enjoy toasting marshmallows under the moon or if you are feeling more adventurous you can cook over an open fire using one of our tripod stands or a Dutch oven.  There are also traditional BBQs which you can borrow if you prefer.

The bathrooms are modern with proper flushing loos which we always aim to keep spotless.


Our favourite spot

Our hidden gem is our large rustic play barn which has badminton, tabletennis, volleyball and a basket ball hoop.  Indeed we have had many intergenerational ping pong matches with grandpas being by far the most competitive oponents.

In our opinion though, nothing beats relaxing in the woodfired hot tub under the stars at night or gathering around a campfire after a day spent exploring the costal path and hidden coves and beaches which are just over a mile away.


The local area

Seeing as you’re right near Polkerris Beach, get water happy with a bit of sailing, windsurfing, powerboating and more at the nearby Polkerris Beach Company (01726 813306). Otherwise grab your hiking boots and get exploring The South West Coast Path. For a bit of Cornish culture, take a stroll down the narrow winding streets of Fowey Old Town, and browse the many individual galleries and shops.

Best local places to eat and drink

There are pork chops, sausages, bacon, and eggs; apple juice and sometimes cider available from the farmhouse; and milk and bread can be pre-ordered from the milkman. If you fancy a night away with the kiddies take them to Sam’s (01726 832273), an American bistro in Fowey, which also has a place at Polkerris Beach (01726 812255).

Why stay with us?

Whether you are looking for a romantic retreat, family adventure or reunion of friends Tremeer offers a wonderful alternative to a traditional holiday.

Long Barn - luxurious farm stay

The newly converted Long Barn has a huge kitchen/dinner/sitting room area with a vaulted, beamed ceiling and an amazing triangular window at the far end that is the full width of the barn, so light pours in – perfect for star gazing. There are also sky lights and 2 stable doors so this room is lovely to spend time in. There is underfloor heating if needed. All the equipment you need for cooking is provided and is a lovely farmhouse table provides plenty of space for dining. There are 3 bedrooms - a double (which can be a twin), a bunk room with 2 bunks (sleeping 4) and a cosy twin room. There are 2 bathrooms. Both have hot, powerful showers and at least one offers disabled access. There is a patio area with a picnic bench and a big fire pit. We barbecued every night with friends we made from one of the yurts. Tip: Bring food and drink with you, it's a long way (Liskegard) to supermarket. A milkman comes every couple of days so you can stock up on dairy/fruit/veg. If the weather is bad, there's a great play barn with games. And there is a wood-fired hot tub. The pigs and hens are fed each morning and you/kids can tag along which is good fun and a good way to meet other holiday makers and enjoy the views from the hillside while you feed Rosie the pig. Rob and Sara were really welcoming and easy to find if we had a question about where to go - pubs, beaches, etc, and only too happy to help with requests. Lovely touches like flowers from the garden and tea and brownies on arrival make you feel really at home. The farm is tucked away down a warren of single track lanes - something we soon discovered is common in this part of Cornwall but can take a bit of getting used to. There are some lovely places (Fowey) and beaches/coves (Lantic Bay, Lanteglos) to visit and we easily filled a week without travelling very far (you do need a car to get around though).

a cornish treat

I was hoping to give my niece and her partner, recently out from South Africa, a taste of the best of Cornwall and the Long Barn did not disappoint. The recently renovated barn is tastefully furnished and has all you need for a truly special stay. As my niece said “I want to live here, can we move in tomorrow?” The flexible accommodation would work just as well for a couple as it would for a group of friends or perhaps two families. The huge picture-perfect window in the main living area looks out over the field where you might see Rosie the pot-bellied pig waiting for a stroke or Mary the Dexter cow munching contentedly on the lush grass. It was early December when my family stayed so they were not able to take advantage of some of the facilities on the farm that include a hot tub and a secluded outside eating area. Local produce, including eggs, meat and xx is available to purchase from the farmhouse - perfect for a breakfast outside or an evening bbq. Long Barn is set within Tremeer Farm and Rob and Sara have created a beautiful holiday barn for those looking for a treat tucked away in a tranquil Cornish valley.

The Long Barn - luxurious farm living at its best...

December 2015 Tremeer Farm is nestled in the foothills of the Cornish Countryside and as you'd imagine farm life to be openly spacious, so is the latest addition at Tremeer... The Long Barn. An artful barn conversion that boasts high ceilings studded with skylights enabling the open-plan kitchen/living space be flooded with light. The open plan living space is dominated by a triangular window spanning the width of the barn that keenly frames the picturesque countryside with flawless craftsmanship. The Long Barn is a renovation of an old Piggery that is in keeping with the rest of the old farm buildings. A skilful tradesman can be thanked for this, both the underfloor heating and insulation have been mastered beyond belief... during our stay we requested the heating be turned down, a first for us. This rebuild has been well thought out from aesthetics through to functionality and design. This is the perfect place for a family holiday or for extended families and friends to come together. There are beautiful walks close by and lots to do and explore in the area. It is very well equipped, and with owners like Robbie and Sara who are keen to offer helpful tips and suggestions of places to visit, there really is no better place in Cornwall that marries hospitality and luxury farm-life better than these two. Their generosity of spirit shines through which undoubtedly adds to the overall experience, not forgetting the dexter cows, flock of sheep and chickens clucking around, all being kept in-check by Rosie... the some-what formidable resident piggy.
