Escape to the heart of the countryside, this former barn has been lovingly fitted and furnished with a stylish interior and is a perfect bolthole or getaway.

Surrounded by tranquil countryside, this cosy cottage is perfectly located near the border of Devon and Cornwall, allowing you to access a variety of days out, from beach trips to historic sites. Whether you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing, romantic getaway, or an outdoor adventure in a rural setting, this beautiful property is the ideal bolthole. Enjoy breakfast outside in the crisp fresh air, and after a day of exploring the local area with your canine companions, nestle down in front of the wood burner.

Lovingly decorated with great attention to detail, this pretty cottage has the perfect mix of modern comforts and country living decor, with stunning original features such as the stone fireplace and exposed wooden beams. The open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner is a lovely, sociable space, with comfortable sofas to curl up on and watch TV in front of the wood burner. Beautifully appointed and well-equipped, the contemporary kitchen has all you need to cook a romantic meal for two, to enjoy at the dining table. Upstairs, there is a spacious yet cosy bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, a vanity, and plenty of storage space, as well as an en-suite shower room. Make the most of the enclosed private terrace with a BBQ, perfect for al fresco dining. The grounds beyond the cottage belong to the owner, and are perfect for a morning stroll with your dogs.

The Cornish coast is 14 miles away, providing you with the perfect opportunity for days out at the seaside. Beaches such as Crackington Haven and Bude are loved by surfers, but are also lovely for a relaxing walk. For those who prefer a more challenging stroll, there is the South West Coast Path, as well as beautiful treks in Dartmoor National Park and slightly further away in Bodmin Moor. The local Roadford Lake is also brilliant for a calm afternoon, or even a swim in the reservoir. For a historic excursion, visit a National Trust site, or the famous Tintagel Castle.
