Description

A semi-detached, bungalow-style property, nestled on a grassland farm just 5 minutes from Boscastle. An excellent base for exploring Cornwall.

These properties lie on the owners’ working mixed grassland farm, in a superb holiday location between Bodmin Moor and the north Cornwall coast. The Bull Pen (28055) and The Cow Shed (28056), have been converted from a traditional barn and are furnished and fitted to a very good standard. Both have a large kitchen/dining area, a wood burner in the living room, French doors and Juliet balcony in one double bedroom and a private, enclosed patio and garden area to the rear, ideal for morning coffee or an evening barbecue. The Hen House (28054) adjoins the owners’ farmhouse; it has a private patio area to the side to enjoy alfresco dining with country views. Boscastle is a 5-minute drive, with walks, harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants. Down the coast is Port Isaac, of TV series Doc Martin fame, where The Fisherman’s Friends sing live on the Platt on Friday summer evenings. A little further is Padstow with shops, pubs and restaurants including Rick Stein’s famous fish restaurant. From here you can take a ferry across to Rock to try the variety of watersports or walk or cycle along the Camel Trail, a haven for birdwatchers. The sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand is 4 miles. Within easy reach is horse riding, National Trust properties, the south west coastal path, golf courses at Bowood and Bude, surfing at Polzeath and Widemouth Bay. Shops, pubs and restaurants 3 miles. The Hen House (28054), The Bull Pen (28055) and The Cow Shed (28056) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    Our second visit to this lovely little cottage. It is the epitomy of tranquillity, peace and quiet and is situated on a delightful working farm. The owners couldn't be more friendly and a homemade cake awaits you upon arrival along with a tray of complimentary goodies.

    We had a most enjoyable stay. The weather was quite wet and very windy but we were able to go out and about and visit interesting and scenic locations. It was fantastic to return to the comfort and warmth of this perfect accommodation. Our hosts had provided everything needed and more besides. Highly recommend!

    A very nice and relaxed holiday we were left alone by the owners. When we arrived there was a fresh baked cake and farm fresh eggs and a mixture of teas

    A very friendly welcome, cake and flowers, awaited us at the Henhouse. Situated near the beautiful Boscastle and ideal for exploring Cornwall we had a wonderful week. Our hosts could not have been friendlier. Dogs were not just allowed, they were welcomed with towels and bed left for their comfort. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

    Very nice accommodation with quality furnishings and all the equipment you could want. The location and immediate area are for those wanting a quiet and peaceful holiday but close enough to beaches, walks and places of interest. David and Jennie, the owners, are lovely hosts and always ready to help with advice and information. All in all a wonderful relaxing holiday - just what was needed.
