Perks for the Parents

This architect-designed barn conversion in Bude, Cornwall is packed with design details and luxurious interiors. It sleeps 4 + 2. Situated near Bude on the Cornwall/Devon border, it’s close to sandy beaches, cliff-side paths and plenty of family friendly attractions. There are great views of the surrounding countryside from the upper floor and there’s plenty of space for the family to play and relax, as well as lots of child-friendly tourist attractions nearby. There are some lovely foodie perks too: guests get a breakfast hamper on their first morning including local bacon, organic free range eggs, bread, milk and fresh coffee. The hosts can also order delicious homemade pre-prepared meals including creamy fish pie so you only have to cook if you really want to.

Why Kids Love it

There’s plenty of outdoor space and the beautiful, large, lawn has soccer nets when they need to run around. Kids can explore the treehouse in the woods and spot the chickens wandering around outside. They’ll have their own dedicated bedroom too, plus lots of toys to use during their stay. When they’re ready to hit the beach, there are surf boards and body-boards to borrow and the hosts can also arrange surf lessons on request. For parents with babies and toddlers, there are 2 cribs available (with 1 mattress) plus a bottle sterilizer, high chair, stair gates and a baby monitor if required.

Things to Know

Minimum stay varies between 2 and 7 nights (Thursday to Thursday). The nightly rate listed is based on a 6 or 7 night stay (the price is the same for both). Prices vary for shorter stays: contact the host for accurate pricing for shorter stays. Car rental is strongly recommended to explore the area - there’s plenty of space for parking outside. This house can be booked together with The Cob Residence, sleeping a total of 13, for summer holidays and family parties. The house comes with a dishwasher, washer/dryer, TV, DVD player and WiFi.

About the Location

The house is located just outside Bude, on the Cornwall/Devon border, in the UK. There are supermarkets in Bude (15 minutes’ drive) or you can pre-order a grocery shop to be delivered to the residence. It’s near the north Cornwall and Devon coast which is well known for its many surfing beaches, including Bude and Croyde, and the Cornwall Heritage Coast walking trails. Other nearby spots include The Eden Project (1 hour 15 minutes), Dartmoor National Park (1 hour 15 minutes), Clovelly (30 minutes) and Port Isaac (1 hour). Newquay regional airport is just over an hour away; London is 4-5 hours’ drive.

Accommodation Details

This residence has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, set over 2 floors. The 2 bedrooms are both on the ground floor; 1 is a double and the other has 2 single beds, both made up with Egyptian cotton sheets. The large bathroom has a shower and bathtub. The lounge is on the upper level, open plan to the kitchen and leading to a deck and the garden, with great views of the countryside. (Access to the garden is only from the upper floor.)

Style Notes

Contemporary barn. The residence was designed by award-winning architects Feildon Fowles and is contemporary, colorful and bright - the perfect place for a family retreat in the English countryside. 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 (great for little ones) and there are lots of cozy textures and textiles to make it feel warm and inviting. We love the exposed beams in the living area, the modern wood burner and the bold green paneling in the bathroom.

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.
