A romantic retreat Cornish style.  This recently converted hideaway-for-two is the perfect base from which to explore the nearby coastline of North Cornwall and enjoy some well earned restful time out.  A fusion of the original Calf house charm and more modern order makes this adorable holiday home a perfect base whatever the season.  

The Property

With a nod to the original calf house this impressive barn conversion oozes rustic charm features from the salvaged beaten wood shutters and vintage milk bottles to the agricultural trusses and exposed granite plinths.  Amidst the country chic nuances the striking modern influence brings this stylish bolthole bang up to date.  The living, dining and kitchen space is open plan with high ceiling and exposed beams, a lovely inviting space full of natural light.  A contemporary kitchen with smart raspberry red splashback and all the mod cons to help you get creative with some of Cornwall's finest homegrown produce.  A white cafe table with pretty pink dining chairs.  At the gable end of this large space is a cosy three seater sofa and large flatscreen TV for that cinema experience.  A few steps up leads to the generous king bedded room with rustic shutters and original high ceiling beams, this indulgent boutique bedroom offers the perfect haven to ensure a restful nights sleep, awake to the morning sunshine.  No less generous the chic bathroom continues the luxury twist.

The Calf House has been beautifully renovated, you can live in your very own 'grand design' for a week.

From your holiday door the large cottage style courtyard is to the front of The Calf's House.  A bench made for two is well placed to capture the morning sun and a raised patio area with outside table makes al fresco dining a tempting option from lazy breakfasts to sunset sundowners.  Beyond the entrance the green farmland opens up for a countryside walk or quiet picnic spot.  The wonderful beaches of Watergate Bay, Mawgan Porth and right up the coast to Harlyn Bay and Treyarnon Bay are all within a short drive, the bustle of Padstow harbour is lovely for an evening stroll with fish and chips in hand or enjoy a slap up meal at one of Rick Stein or Paul Ainsworths eateries.  Day trips to St Ives, Falmouth or Fowey are again an easy option, enjoy the contrast of coastline from north to south.
