This beautifully converted farmhouse provides a perfect holiday location for families or friends looking for a peaceful getaway set on a working farm. The property has been lovingly restored to its former glory and the original features truly add to its character and charm, making it a wonderful country retreat, yet close to great beaches and secluded coves. Beyond the sprawling countryside that surrounds the property is the rugged Cornish coastline, which boasts vast sandy beaches, perfect for surfing, body boarding, swimming and long walks along the South West Coast Path. A six mile drive will bring you to Bude where you will find sandy beaches, the boating canal, leisure pool, golf course, a selection of shops, coffee shops and award winning restaurants and bistros.

A games room in the main farmhouse features a pool table, darts board, board games, 3D Smart TV, Nintendo Wii and a wood burner, perfect for large family occasions. The superb accommodation offers five bedrooms, to include two twins, one king-size with en-suite shower room and WC and one double with en-suite shower room and WC. There is an additional king-size bedroom with TV, en-suite shower room and WC accessed via separate stairs leading off the games room for added privacy.

This is perfect for either a group of couples or a family. It seems a bit out of the way when you're driving to it but the town is only about 15 mins away. The property itself is amazing and the owners live next door and come to greet us and said to make as much noise as we like which was a relief as we were a group celebrating a 30th birthday! It'Read mores so tidy and everything you need is there. We were greeted with a massive bottle of prosecco and fresh scones! I would 100% come back! Hide
