Escape to the heart of the countryside, this former barn has been lovingly fitted and furnished with a stylish interior and is a perfect bolthole or getaway.

Surrounded by tranquil countryside, this cosy cottage is perfectly located near the border of Devon and Cornwall, allowing you to access a variety of days out, from beach trips to historic sites. Whether you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing, romantic getaway, or an outdoor adventure in a rural setting, this beautiful property is the ideal bolthole. Enjoy breakfast outside in the crisp fresh air, and after a day of exploring the local area with your canine companions, nestle down in front of the wood burner.

Lovingly decorated with great attention to detail, this pretty cottage has the perfect mix of modern comforts and country living decor, with stunning original features such as the stone fireplace and exposed wooden beams. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a lovely, sociable space, with comfortable sofas to curl up on and watch TV in front of the wood burner. Beautifully appointed and well-equipped, the contemporary kitchen has all you need to cook a romantic meal for two, to enjoy at the dining table. Upstairs, there is a spacious yet cosy bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, a vanity, and plenty of storage space, as well as an en-suite shower room. Make the most of the enclosed private terrace with a BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining. The grounds beyond the cottage belong to the owner, and are perfect for a morning stroll with your dogs.

The Cornish coast is 14 miles away, providing you with the perfect opportunity for days out at the seaside. Beaches such as Crackington Haven and Bude are loved by surfers, but are also lovely for a relaxing walk. For those who prefer a more challenging stroll, there is the South West Coast Path, as well as beautiful treks in Dartmoor National Park and slightly further away in Bodmin Moor. The local Roadford Lake is also brilliant for a calm afternoon, or even a swim in the reservoir. For a historic excursion, visit a National Trust site, or the famous Tintagel Castle.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

I booked for family members - and their dog. They loved the cottage, everything worked as it should, and their dog loved the the dedicated dog field. The location is ideal - 20 mins from the sea, 30 mins from the moors, 15 mins to shops etc - and with easy access to the A30. The cottage is well set up for winter and would be ideal for an out of seaRead moreson break. Hide

We loved our stay at this very well fitted out little cottage. Every detail was thought of which made our stay very comfortable and stress free. We especially loved how dog friendly this place was by including dog bowls, towels, poo bags and treats for our pooch. Would reccomend to couples for a short or long stay!

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.
