Tregulland and Co

Location: Cornwall

Tregulland and Co was created by Bristol based couple Ken and Illona Aylmer, a property developer who bought the first property Tregulland Cottage and Barn in 2005, in a completely derelict state. Since then they have recently opened two further properties Barford Beach House and Pentire penthouse apartment over looking Fistral Beach.

This luxury collection of self catering accommodation in Cornwall now comprises of: Tregulland Cottage and Barn, the flagship property which can be taken together as one unit sleeping up to 22 (+3), or individually as two sleeping 10 and 12 respectively, together with its indoor freshwater swimming pool. Pentire, the newly launched luxury penthouse sleeps 8 people (+2). Barford beach house sleeps up to sixteen guests in six en suite bedrooms with views of breaking surf and access to a secluded beach, Wanson Mouth.

The interiors of all three properties have been designed by Marcus Crane with almost all of the furniture being vintage, sourced from antique shops, auctions and reclamation yards. Tregulland has a mismatched countryside feel with comfortable squashy sofas and stylish lamps, Pentire has a more mid century modernist feel with rosewood cabinets and funky original giant sixties film posters. Barford promises to be more dramatic again with copper clad walls and a giant atrium with illicit Parisian globe chandeliers.

Tregulland Cottage and Barn

The cottage hosts a huge dining table to seat 24 and an interlinked fully kitted out kitchen, snug and sunroom, this house is made for big celebration feasts. If the weather is clear you can take in a beautiful sunset in the all glass sunroom and if its not, you can light the woodburner in the snug and curl up with a book or relax in the warm while you watch the weather roll through the valley.

The barn is light and airy, with lots of space to spread out; enjoy a big lunch downstairs in the Kitchen/Diner, and in the evening, take a seat in the gabled Granary sitting room, switch on the HD projector and cinema screen and get ready for movie night.


The new Barford Beach House is playful, innovative, deeply comfortable and slap bang on the north Cornwall coast a short walk from Widemouth Bay.

A stay at Barford is for those who like a dollop of fun with their interior design - no twee painted driftwood beach signs here, just an eclectic mix of deep smoked oak flooring, polished brass and silver bateau baths, Moroccan tassel fringed bed throws, vintage angelpoise lamps, modern prints of Bristol (where the owners live) and vibrant art work to create a “Rough-luxe” feel. A generous use of fabrics from designers such as Romo, Emin, Lewis & Wood and Savannah give a polished finish to the overall look.

A short walk from Widemouth Bay with access to pubs and cafés as well as miles of beautiful sandy beaches, surf and clifftop walks, the house overlooks the sea 150m from a very private beach at Wanson Mouth.


This futuristic circular Penthouse apartment overlooking the internationally acclaimed Fistral Beach and is only 5 minutes from the stunning National Trust owned Crantock Beach. The property boasts a huge roof terrace with an 8 person hot tub overlooking the sea.
