Property code: OLDFA

This superb property dates back over 400 years and was once the heart of a working family farm. Completely renovated and restored with plenty of period charm throughout and set in an unrivalled location on a working farm close to popular Bude.

This beautifully converted six-bedroom farmhouse provides the perfect holiday destination for families and friends looking for a peaceful getaway on a working farm. With a huge lounge, games room for hours of entertainment and impressive outdoor decked area with hot tub and adjacent sauna, this is a house for special celebrations and enjoying each other’s company. This luxurious property is within easy reach of the North Cornwall coastline with glorious Widemouth Bay (4 miles) only a short drive away. Pull on your wetsuits for a group surf lesson or enjoy riotous games of rounders on the long sandy beach. Book yourselves onto a Segway adventure (4.5 miles) and ride along the family-friendly trails through the beautiful Cornish countryside for a memorable day out.

Your fabulous rural retreat offers luxurious accommodation sleeping up to ten guests within the main farmhouse and an additional two guests in the detached annexe, providing flexible accommodation for your party. Tastefully decorated in neutral shades and retaining many original features, this stunning property has a bright, contemporary feel throughout. Cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen where you will find everything you need to cater for large parties. The lounge/diner is a sociable space where you can linger over supper at the impressive dining table and unwind on the sumptuous sofas as the logs crackle in the wood burner set in the Inglenook fireplace. There’s a second wood burner in the games room, where you can let off steam with a competitive game of pool or darts, or cosy up in the seating area with a glass of wine and lively conversation. There are five luxuriously appointed bedrooms in the main farmhouse, three of which enjoy en-suite facilities. In the garden, you will find the detached annexe to the rear of the farmhouse which has a comfortable lounge/kitchen, king-size bedroom and shower room. The annexe benefits from its own private patio area for extra privacy. Outside of the main farmhouse, there is a large grassed area for garden games and picnics, while to the rear is a large garden and orchard with outdoor dining area and built-in BBQ, ideal for al fresco dining. Enjoy an indulgent soak in the private sunken hot tub. Next to this area is a conservatory/reading area with a private sauna looking out onto the orchard. For younger guests, there is an enclosed play area with climbing frame and swings. There is ample off-road parking.

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