Grade II Listed barn, with original features throughout, on this rural idyll with ponies, pig, hens and sheep, play area and indoor play barn with easy access to the Cornish coast.
This comfortable single-level holiday property is a careful conversion of a Grade II-listed stone-built barn. It's one of four properties on a peaceful 20-acre farm, 5 miles from pretty Boscastle. An ideal getaway for medium-sized families, it has many shared facilities - a games barn, soft play room and outdoor play area. Children can meet and help to feed the resident farm animals: sheep, a characterful pig, hens and ponies. You're perfectly placed 5 miles from the rugged North Cornish coast, with great places to visit there and inland.
Original features reveal the rustic past: solid timber beams, exposed stonework, and the wide barn doorways are now large windows onto the shared garden - this cleverly links indoors and outdoors, bringing that fresh green countryside light inside. Furnishings are comfortable with cottage style and cheerful colours. The open-plan dining/living area has a wood burner for cooler evenings. Outside, explore the grounds, discover the ‘secret garden' complete with firepit for after-dark gatherings, or spark up the BBQ for sunny afternoon feasts.
Locally, you can walk to Bodmin Moor on footpaths about 3 miles away, including some typical ‘hollow-ways' or sunken lanes. The nearest beach is Bossiney Cove 7 miles away, and a trip to Boscastle, with traditional stone buildings and picturesque river, is a must. Tintagel, also on the coast 7 miles away, will captivate you with its Arthurian myth and mystery. On the Pentire Point and Widemouth Heritage Coast, the South West Coast Path has clifftop routes with breathtaking views.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
