Having undergone a major transformation which was completed in August 2019 The Roundhouse returns to the market offering a fantastic, large holiday home for families or groups celebrating that special event.

A stunning stone barn conversion with a wonderful countryside and estuary view, situated in a rural area yet only a short drive from Padstow and several beaches.  The beautiful restoration of The Roundhouse used natural materials such as stone, wood and slate, and upstairs its open plan interior with high vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, modern woodburning stove and contemporary decor, gives it a delightful light and airy feel.  The kitchen and dining areas at first floor level, together with lounge, a few steps down, master bedroom, kitchen, balcony and the garden all have wonderful countryside views down the valley to the estuary, Rock and the sea beyond.  This peaceful retreat at Higher Halwyn is tucked right away from it all but a 10-15 minute drive will take you to Padstow, Wadebridge and several golden sandy beaches.  It is on the edge of a small hamlet of similar dwellings found along a quiet farm lane leading down to the Camel estuary and in the other direction to the village of St. Issey and two public houses.  The Camel Trail, just down the lane, follows the route of the old railway line between Padstow and Bodmin and is much loved by walkers and cyclists (bikes may be hired at Padstow or Wadebridge).  The path wends its way alongside the riverbank through this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with its abundant wildlife of all kinds.

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 L,

There is a great view of the Camel Estuary from the property.

Mr Richard L,

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 S,


Padstow is arguably now one of the best-known of Cornwall's holiday destinations - a working harbour still retaining the character of the fishing industry while also managing to reinvent itself as a modern holiday destination. Padstow has so much to offer the discerning holiday maker, with several beaches along the Camel Estuary, where you can also have a go at a range of water sports such as sailing and windsurfing, as well as a variety of boat trips such as fishing excursions, speedboat rides, sea-life safaris and the ever popular Jubilee Queen. You can indulge your passion for food at an excellent selection of restaurants in the town, which is now the base for a number of celebrity chefs including Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth.  If you're looking for more active pursuits, you can cycle the Camel Trail, the route of the old railway line running between Padstow and Bodmin.  If walking is more your thing, there are many walking trails and routes waiting to be discovered, and if you're bringing a dog, there are plenty of dog-friendly places to explore. Gaining popularity in recent years is the Padstow Christmas Festival, now spread over four days, with cookery demonstrations, food and craft market, and entertainment.
