  • Semi-detached barn conversion with private hot tub and games room with full sized snooker table all set on a 200 acre working farm, perfect for getting away from it all
  • Only 8 miles from the seaside town of Bude where you can explore the rugged coastline along the South West Coast path
  • Located on the Devon/Cornwall border, ideal for exploration and a short drive to sandy beaches and the region’s top visitor attractions
Property code: 43994

This large and impressive stone-built barn conversion is one of two properties on a working cattle farm, near the Devon/Cornwall border and 8 miles from bustling Bude. The layout is cleverly upside-down, with bedrooms below and a well-equipped kitchen/diner and spacious dining/living room upstairs, making the most of the high beamed ceilings and countryside views. There’s a large games room with a full-size snooker table, and for a truly relaxing experience, a private hot tub on the patio.

Traditional stone and plasterwork inside and out gives an attractive and authentic look. Inside, it’s all about relaxation, with plenty of comfortable seating in the bright upstairs lounge area, and a mezzanine-level snug room for quieter moments. Two of the three double bedrooms, and the twin room, have direct access to the garden. Natural wood furniture, slate and wood floors, and a gentle colour palette make this a country-style haven. Outside, why not take in the view from the hot tub while you plan tomorrow’s adventures? Or if you’ve found some excellent local produce, spark up the BBQ for a family feast on the decked area. Farm tours, tractor rides, and visits to the animals (including the resident pig) can be arranged.

Two fishing lakes are accessible on-site for some quiet downtime, and Holsworthy within 4 miles has shops and pubs. Bude, a classic Cornish resort, has sandy Summerleaze Beach, shopping and dining, and a tidal pool. Northcott Mouth beach is dog friendly and not usually crowded. Drive 18 miles through the Pentire Point Widemouth Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, to pretty Boscastle village. At the Tamar Lakes 10 miles away, you can arrange sailing, kayaking, and zorbing from the water sports centre.

The cottage was really spacious for 5 adults 2 children and a toddler. Al very clean. The snooker table and hot tub were great on the wet days to keep the kids happy. Very comfy barn conversion, home from home feeling. No WiFi, vodaphone works fine but 3 not at all so be prepared.

A lovely quiet location with plenty of parking and a hot tub. Wifi is very intermittent as is 4g etc but thats not always a bad thing!! Plenty of living room space and a large square dining table which was nice. Beds very comfy. Would recommend for a family get together.

A really lovely touch.The barn was a beautiful building to stay in cosy and spacious at the same time. Tony and his wife are great hosts and always happy to help make your stay great. The farm is a hidden gem, quite and out the way buRead moret a short trip to bude or holsworthy close enough. The snooker room and hot tub were great to have to keep everyone entertained.

This is a perfect location for exploring the coast - the barn was very comfortable with loads of space to relax. The farmer was really welcoming and suggested different walking routes for us and our dog. Definitely recommend a stay!

Fantastic place to stay, the owner who lives on site is very friendly and helpful. We found the house to be very clean, comfortable and well equipped. You are surrounded by fields so very peaceful and the two donkeys and horse which live in the field behind the cottage were super friendly. The only negative for us was the staircase being open (no rRead moreisers) and our dog wasn't keen on this so we had to carry her up and down which was a good work out when she is nearly 30kgs. Hide

Lovely place with plenty of character and the owner will do whatever he can to help. The ponds are great for young kids to learn how to fish as there are loads of fish and the whole area is full of wildlife, frogs, dragonflies, buzzards and bats on a night. This is a true gem and so peaceful but very close to local attractions.
