A unique haven of peace & tranquility. Beautiful, comfortable eco-accommodation close to nature with wonderful scenery & walks nearby. Delicious organic food and a warm welcome. A special & magical place where you can escape hectic life!

Le logement

A beautiful & peaceful strawbale barn on a 14-acre organic smallholding, by the south coast of Cornwall. A spacious self-contained studio room with curvy lime-washed walls, wooden floor, wood burner & large sofa. Includes a comfortable king-size iron bed, shower, kitchen & dining space. Compost loos are outside (posh ones!)

A secluded location in a private valley, an inspirational place to connect with the environment, to retreat, restore & revitalise. There are organic vegetable & fruit gardens where you can pick your own produce. There are free-range eggs & other homemade produce available eg sourdough bread, delicious jams & preserves - and vegetarian cuisine is also possible on request.

We are within walking distance from the sea & beautiful coastpath & beaches and near to The Lost Gardens of Heligan & Eden Project. The bus from St Austell Station brings you to the village at the end of our track where we can meet you and where there is an excellent local pub & village shop.

All our visitors find Cotna a unique and beautiful place to find what you need and connect with yourselves - the hidden location, the warm & friendly welcome, the peaceful environment and the inspirational projects make it "a hidden jewel of the Cornish countryside."

Obwohl wir nicht an biologische santitäre Einrichtungen gewöhnt sind, hat es Dave gut verstanden uns den Umgang damit nahezubringen. Die Versorgung mit frischen Lebensmitteln haben wir genossen: jeden Morgen noch warmes, frischgebackenes Brot, dazu frische Eier, Butter und Gemüse.

This place is truly wonderful. If you are looking to relax and get away from the city then look no further. Sara and Dave were so lovely and brought us a beautiful hamper of organic produce from the farm to cook with - yummy. The beauty of the farm and the views when you wake up are priceless. The accommodation was cosy, very comfortable bed and the fireplace with wood burning during the night a treat.

Sara and Dave give a warm reception and are friendly and communicative as hosts. They offered a brilliant foraging session which we had never tried before but will now try again! They were kind enough to teach us to cook with edible wild plants, welcoming us into their home to cook and dine with them. Can't recommend it more if you are looking for a relaxing stay at a unique location.

Great secluded location and welcoming hosts, an excellent breakfast hamper with delicious bread and absolutely awesome eggs! Lots of really good things about this place, but.... The yurt we were allocated wasn't the strawbale barn we had wanted to book, and it didn't come with the same facilities. They had warned us we would be in a different unit, so we should have checked before confirming the booking. Unfortunately, I found the bed to be unacceptably lumpy and didn't sleep well. I am more princess-and-the-pea sensitive than I was when I was younger and could happily sleep on bare ground - now I am willing to pay for my creature comforts.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Strawbales,it being a more rustic style of accommodation there was plenty of firewood to warm ourselves on arrival which made it very cosy. The farm location was ideal for walks and explorations and to top it off Dave supplied us with fresh picked veggies and eggs for us to prepare our own dinner and breakfast. We would definitely recomend Cotna Eco Retreat for its unique style of accommodation

Profil utilisateur de Sara & Dave

Sara Readman-Smyth
Sara was a teacher, trainer and examiner of EFL / ESOL in London before she came to Cornwall. She has travelled extensively in both Europe & Asia, particularly in South India. She has always loved contact with other cultures through work and travel, and has integrated this into life at Cotna through her overseas links and interest in international cuisine. She has also brought a reflective side to life at Cotna through yoga, meditation and encouraging the use of the studio for solitary retreats. She is a Homoeopath, has trained in Ayurveda and teaches Dyslexic students at Falmouth University. Life as a smallholder has been very new to her, but she has particularly taken to the sowing and growing of seeds, as well as developing the Artisan bread-making and cooking side of things – mainly because she loves eating!

Dave Readman
Dave has spent his life in the West country and trained as a Plant Biochemist at Bath University. He has mainly worked in the field of conservation and ecology and has an encyclopaedic knowledge of plants! He has trained many young people over the years in countryside skills and woodland management, and more recently has been working with older volunteers on walking and cycling for health and fitness schemes. He is a homoeopath and an ardent plantsman, gardener and composter! He loves growing and eating food and being in the woods coppicing and harvesting fuel-wood. He says it’s all about moving healthily, eating well, keeping warm and dry and knowing how to get well when it goes wrong!
