Once a tumbled down stone farm store, Little Barn has been flawlessly converted to present a luxury rural escape created just for two. This beautiful barn cleverly combines the charm and spirit of its former years with more modern order and touch of Cornish luxury for your stay. Soak up the rural views from the comfort of your home, from cosy winter weekends to lazy summer weeks exploring the nearby coastline, this perfect Cornish Gem sets the scene for rest and relaxation. Discover the nearby beaches of Mawgan Porth, Watergate Bay and Porthcothnan or head to nearby Padstow for some of Cornwall's finest restaurants. Little Barn welcomes up to 2 dogs.

The Property

Hidden away in the verdant countryside of North Cornwall, follow the lane to your warm welcome at Little Barn. From the moment you arrive, breathe in the fresh air and get back to nature in true Cornish style. Little Barn is a single storey stone barn conversion packed full of traditional charm yet has been cleverly decorated with a cool contemporary twist. A modern colour palette of burnt orange and vibrant greens complement the natural elements of the surrounding area whilst the stylish wooden furniture and stripped wood floor boards add warmth and a relaxing ambience. The ship shape fitted kitchen has been thoughtfully kitted out with everything you need to enjoy some home away from home cooking and with Cornwall firmly on the foodie map you can get culinary creative with some of the finest local ingredients. From fireside teas to sunny breakfasts, the open plan living layout offers ample space in which to relax. Switch off from the world with a good book or enjoy a couples favourite film. Retire in style to the beautiful bedroom and sink into the 4 poster bed after a days exploration of North Cornwall. The uber-chic bathroom completes the luxury conversion with stand alone oval bath perfectly raised to capture the rural views and, in the summer months, the golden sunset. A large walk in shower is a welcome treat after a day on the beach or in the waves.

The Little Barn was perfect, great break in gorgeous accommodation.

To the front of Little Barn is a paved patio area with all weather dining table and chairs, enjoy breakfast al fresco and plan out your day. To the rear, a larger patio area with sun loungers ensures you can wile away the afternoon with only the birds to disturb. Guests and their dogs are welcome to explore the rural surroundings and farmland. From the enviable location, you are well placed to explore North Cornwall and immerse yourself the the natural zen of the coastline. The more popular beaches of Watergate Bay and Mawgan Porth are within 15 - 20 minutes drive or head up the coast a little to Harlyn Bay, Trevone, Constantine and Treyarnon. Pack up a picnic and hit the coast path leading you up and along some of the best cliff walks in the country and certainly the finest seascapes. The nearby coastal harbour of Padstow is very close by, Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth restaurants are both well worth a reservation or keep it simple with fish and chips on the quay as you watch the boats go by. If water sports are on th agenda then what a choice? Surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing, sailing and more are all within easy reach.

Take some time together and map out your escape in North Cornwall from the luxury and adorable charm of Little Barn.

Roger Martin

Fabulous barn perfect location very peaceful but close enough to all amenities didn't want to leave. Loved the log burner & settee so comfortable. Dogs loved exploring the outside space. Perfect


Had a very enjoyable stay with our dog. Very nice property and very relaxing and quiet. We could have stayed longer.

A lovely quiet spot out close to amenities and gorgeous beaches.

Barbara Ford

A lovely cottage in a peaceful location where we were completely undisturbed. The surrounding countryside and comforts of the cottage suited and us and our dog perfectly. Thank you.

Alison Shilton

We found this barn a wonderful place to relax - we have stayed at all 3 of their one bed barns and found them all delightful but this was our favourite and will want to return. The meadow outside was perfect for our two dogs and a complete bonus!

Louise Hartley

All I can say that we loved it.

Mrs Ruth Canvin

We had an amazing stay at 'Little Barn'. It is in a fantastic location - away from the road giving a feeling of living in the countryside but so close to so many lovely beaches etc. The barn is luxurious with a lovely bath to relax in. Our dog loved the barn too - we really didn't want to go home and hope to book again in the future. Thank you!

Katie Leggott

The cottage was very sweet and cosy and the owners very nice.

Marianne Parry

The property was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

An amazing stay at Little Barn! Truly a memorable escape which hopefully we can repeat one day. Great service!


Little Barn was a beautiful place to stay & we'd recommend it. Bathroom was excellent. The welcome hamper was delightful as was the bubbly, very thoughtful. A lot of care has gone into the cottage & the sofa was wonderful, very comfortable. Thank you for a great week.
