A cosy hideaway for two, this sympathetically converted barn offers spacious accommodation, plenty of original charm and an unbeatable rural setting.

A sweet upside-down farm conversation where two people can escape into the countryside together. An attractive stone exterior shows its history and it's perfectly located for exploring the rugged North Coast of Cornwall. Walk the coastal trail which leads to the unspoilt natural inlet, pretty village and harbour of Boscastle and spend your time on the beaches, wandering gorgeous rural villages and visiting excellent Cornish attractions.


Old features have been retained such as the stylish slate floors and wooden beams, while underfloor heating is a luxurious additional extra that you can enjoy. The warm atmosphere of this little annexe will make you feel at home almost as soon as you arrive. Open up the glass doors onto the terrace and let a little light in, from here you can gaze out over stunning ocean views while enjoying a traditional cider.


The excellent location means you are half a mile from Buckator Beach and it's only 3 miles into Boscastle town centre. Go surfing at Widemouth Bay or any of Bude's (within 15 miles) excellent beaches. Tintagel with its famous castle is 7 miles south and carry on past that to reach Port Isaac, Doyden castle and the small seaside resort of Polzeath (all under 20 miles). The famous Eden Project makes for a great day out otherwise explore Bodmin Moor and wander Bodmin Jail (all 20 - 30 miles away).

Great cottage and location. Loved it!

Reviewed by Gareth 10th November 2019

Nice clean barn conversion, no frills but good accomodation. Walking distance to the coastal path, but once you've done that and a short stretch along the coast you feel like you've accomplished quite a lot, but that might just be me!

Reviewed by Jane 25th October 2019

Perfect cottage for a quiet escape. Cottage had everything you could need, set in beautiful countryside. Me, my hubby and our dog had a lovely week here and would definitely stay again. Boscastle a 5 min drive away or couple of mile walk along the coastal path with pubs and shops for any necessities.

The owners were very friendly, couldn't do enough for us. It was a pleasure to stay there. Would certainly stay there again.

A great venue. Really a great place to stay.

Reviewed by Pat 21st June 2019

It was much further from the coastal path than we had thought which was disappointing and much too far for us to walk into Boscastle which we had wanted. It was very peaceful and quiet there but we would like to have been able to sit in a garden in the shade. On the whole it was a nice place to stay.

Perfect holiday cottage for a couple to enjoy. Lovely wet room, comfortable sofa and bed.

Reviewed by David 10th February 2019

A nice cottage located on a farm that was very quiet and the inside was nicely fitted out. It has everything that you need and was warm and cosy and very clean. Friendly owner that greeted us when we arrived and offered any help if we needed it. We didn't, as everything was there and and we were very happy with the accommodation.

Amazing stay as always

Reviewed by Neville 21st September 2018

Very nice cosy cottage, interesting set up as bedroom and bathroom downstairs, all items needed for a comfortable stay in cottage. Central for towns and villages with Boscastle about 10 mins away and Bude about 20 mins away. Some very nice beaches and coves to explore nearby.

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.
