One of five barn conversions nestled in a delightful country setting, offering a peaceful and relaxing destination. With woodland walks and a private fishing lake this complex has plenty of offer.

Offering a truly peaceful retreat in the heart of the beautiful Devon countryside, you can enjoy woodland walks and private fishing right from the front door. This pretty cottage is one of five barn conversions nestled within one central complex - perfect for gathering the family together for celebrations. With a games room, outdoor play area, shared gardens, woodlands and a pet corner with chickens, goats, pigs and ponies, it makes for a truly fabulous family stay.


Approaching over the gravel, this gorgeous stone cottage with duck egg green detailing comes into sight. Set all on one level, you’ll find yourself stepping into the open-plan living/dining space. The white-washed walls and wood flooring provide a light airy space yet ooze country charm and cosiness. Under a beamed archway, you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen, perfect for cooking up a feast to enjoy on the farm-style dining table and chairs. Upstairs, there’s a comfortable double bed, ideal for resting your head after a day exploring your new surroundings and a bath to sink into. The best is yet to come, as outside is bursting with fun; no matter the season there’s endless opportunities to get stuck in and embrace countryside life.


If you can pull yourself away from the complex, you’ll find an array of beautiful beaches all within easy reach. Bude is just 15 miles away and is well worth a visit for its fantastic eateries, independent boutiques, long stretches of golden sand and a unique sea pool. Head a little further and you’ll come to Tintagel - immerse yourself in history, myths and breathtaking coastal views. If you’re just fancying a bite to eat, the local village of Holsworthy, 5 miles from the cottage, offers some lovely pubs and restaurants.

A great base for exploring the Cornwall and Devon, with good suggestions by hosts for local pubs, areas and places to visit. We loved sharing food scraps with animals in the mornings!

Well appointed cottage. Comfortable and easy to relax in. Would visit again

Reviewed by G 29th March 2019

The cottage is comfortable and equipment and utensils have been carefully chosen by the owners who made us feel at home in the restful accommodation. They are on site running the farm and their fresh eggs were an unexpected delight for us. The location is beautiful and peaceful. We look forward to returning.
