Set on a working farm, this fantastic and spacious property is just ten minutes from the Tamar Lakes and boasts countryside views, a private hot tub and games room.

The spacious property, just 8 miles from the coast, sleeps 14 guests, meaning it’s the ideal place to enjoy large family get-togethers and celebrations with friends. As well as the private hot tub and games room, you’ll have access to 300 acres of open farmland, so you can enjoy peaceful countryside strolls before breakfast. Bude is just 8.5 miles from the property, and you’ll be surrounded by fabulous local attractions, including Hartland Abbey, Milky Way Adventure Park, and Clovelly (all within 12 miles).

A sweeping driveway leads to this impressive stone property. Once inside, you’ll be met by a spacious lounge/kitchen/diner, which is flooded with natural light and heated by a central raised wood burner. Perch at the stylish breakfast bar to discuss the day’s plans over morning coffee, enjoy evenings of great food and laughter around the large dining table or curl up with a book on the plump sofas to watch the TV/DVD. Doors lead from here to the enclosed patio, which has outdoor furniture and a private hot tub. There’s also a games room with a pool table and table tennis, providing hours of entertainment.

Round up the troops and head to the coast for a day at the seaside in Bude. The attractive resort is bursting with Cornish charm, with a sandy beach, tidal pool, cute boutiques and eateries and access to the wild and rugged South West Coast Path. The 12th-century Hartland Abbey makes a wonderfully relaxing day out.

We celebrated a 70th birthday with as many family who could come, we loved the barn and location, some of us even swimming at Bude beach! And pool dipping at Welcome and Sandymouth beaches. The house was warm and inviting and big enough for all of us.

We booked the barn for our whole family following a cancellation the year before due to Covid. It's the first time we've ever all stayed together and it was very special. Very well equipped, lovely and cosy and warm! Lots of room for the grandchildren to play too. The hot tub is a great addition as was the games room. Great to have towels provided Read moretoo. Although right next door to the owner's property, felt very private and although a working farm, very little noise. We would love to return !! Hide

The barn was well spaced for three generations of our family ( twelve of us. ) to thoroughly enjoy a weeks stay at Lympscott Farm. In a very quiet location, with an enormous dark sky at night to clearly see the Milky Way galaxy. We enjoyed seeing the cows being milked, the games room - especially the running machine!!

Nicely constructed barn conversion at the heart of a working diary farm. Rural isolation. Owners on site and always helpful and friendly, offering the children a chance to see the cows being milked in the dairy. The main accommodation is light, spacious and nicely furnished. 6 bedrooms, of which 4 en-suite. The bedrooms are quite small, and we founRead mored the mattresses too soft. The hot tub is fine, and the separate games room is well equipped. Works well for 8-10, but tight for a max of 14. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
