This luxurious barn conversion, sleeping 4 + babies, is packed with design details and is a warm and inviting place for a family retreat in the English countryside. Near Bude on the Cornwall/Devon border, it’s close to sandy beaches, cliffside paths and plenty of family friendly attractions. The residence was designed by award-winning architects Feildon Fowles and is contemporary, bright and conducive to a great family stay. There’s plenty of outdoor space, with a large lawned garden with soccer nets, and there are great views of the surrounding countryside from the upper storey. It's a lovely space and great location for a family vacation, near north Cornwall beaches and north Devon attractions.

What we love

  • The decor is fun and fresh, with patterned wallpaper, Orla Kiely cushions, bright striped deckchairs in the garden and exposed beams
  • While it’s very light and airy, there are blackout blinds for those who need to sleep
  • The two bedrooms are both on the ground floor; one is a double and the other is a twin, both made up with Egyptian cotton sheets
  • The lounge is on the upper level, open plan to the kitchen and leading to a deck and the lawned garden. It has great views of the countryside
  • The large bathroom has a shower and bath tub
  • There are some lovely foodie perks: guests get a breakfast hamper on their first morning including local bacon, organic free range eggs, bread, milk and fresh coffee
  • They can also order delicious homemade pre-prepared meals including creamy fish pie so you only have to cook if you really want to
  • There’s great provision for kids, with toys and DVDs, a bottle steriliser, a treehouse in the woods to explore, chickens to pet/chase, surfboards and bodyboards to borrow and plenty of space to run about
  • It's right on the Devon/Cornwall border, near the famous north Cornwall surf beaches, Bude, Croyde and Woolacombe. Other nearby spots include The Eden Project, The Minack Theatre, Clovelly and Port Isaac

We moved to Devon from London nine years ago to follow our dream and bring up our family by the seaside. It was a bit of a leap of faith but our boys, now 14 and 12 are avid surfers and we wouldn't change it for the world. Renovating Venn Farm, where we live, has been a labour of love. We now have three properties that we rent out for holidays, The Cob, The Red Barn and our latest edition Escallonia Cottage.

Bude, Cornwall

Sandy beaches, a tidal pool and The Big Sheep

This North Cornwall town just over the Devon border has two sandy beaches, a romantic tidal pool tucked into the cliffs, playgrounds and riverside walks made for wildlife spotters. It’s a fantastic place for a family holiday - and if it rains, The Big Sheep, a local family theme park, has a great indoor play area.
