Beautifully presented barn conversion with unique features, which is ideally situated on the Devon and Cornwall border to enjoy some of the area’s best offerings.

Positioned on the Devon/Cornwall border just 6 miles from pretty seaside town Bude, this hideaway promises a peaceful escape to guests. A two-level barn conversion with a contemporary design, you’ll get the perfect mix of old and new in this bright and airy property. Relax on the huge sofa in the open-plan living area, looking out through the bi-folding doors onto the grounds that includes a beautiful blossoming orchard, or sit out on the decking under the sun parasol in the warmer months.

Step into the property through the patio doors for step-free access and you’re greeted by the stunning double-height ceilings in the living area, with huge windows and a beautiful wooden spiral staircase. The interiors are fresh and light, and the decor offers a blend of coastal and rural life. At night, the living area can be turned into a cosy haven thanks to the folding doors that discreetly hide the kitchen from view. In the evening, head up to bed to the double room that has large open windows at the end, gently waking you from your slumber after a wonderful night’s sleep.

Cycle along the traffic-free Bude Canal and Coast Cycle Route that you can join just 4 miles from the property, taking you on a 5-mile scenic route. If you prefer walking, take a stroll along Sandymouth Beach (9 miles), or the fascinating coastline at Morwenstow (13 miles). There’s plenty to keep kids occupied, including the Milky Way Adventure Park (18 miles) and the BIG Sheep (25 miles), while the historic fishing town Clovelly (18 miles) should keep everyone happy with the friendly donkeys and interesting shops and cafes.

Borough Hideaway is a fantastic place to stay, this was our 2nd visit. The accommodation is fabulous and the large garden area is a definite bonus for the kids. The location is great, as its lovely and quiet and only a 10 minute drive into Bude. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming and always happy to answer any questions. We spent most eveninRead moregs sat in the garden after a busy day out and saw barn owls flying through the trees, which was amazing. We definitely intend to stay here again. Hide

This is an excellent base for touring the area. The accommodation is high spec and a lot has been crammed in to a small space. So it is quite cosy but functional. The hosts are great and on hand if you require anything. There is a nice decking area outside the bi-fold doors and from about 8.30pm onward a couple of barn owls start doing their thing Read morein the field next door which was nice to see. When using the hob/oven you will need to read the instructions provided first time round. Hide

We've stayed in quite a number of properties with Holidaycottages.co.uk and I think we all agreed that this one was our favourite. It's a beautiful secluded spot but only a short drive into Bude, beaches etc. The property had everything we needed. We especially loved the wildlife in the large garden, from squirrels, rabbits, birds and two barn owlsRead more which kept us entertained most evenings! Would certainly recommend this property and the friendly owners. Great place, 5 stars Hide
