The property

With mystery, magic and drama, you will be spellbound by this stunning barn conversion. Hidden in a beautiful corner of North Cornwall just three miles from the coast, this stylish Grade II Listed property sits within the grounds of the former landed Figg-Hoblyn estate. A walk through the nearby woodland will reveal the ruins of the manor house, left to rack and ruin after a family dispute; in fact the heir to the estate has never been found after disappearing to America during the Second World War. The sociable open plan living space spans the entire ground floor and provides the perfect place to catch up on the day's events or relax in front of a film. Upstairs antique French furniture in the master bedroom contrasts with the contemporary whites of the second bedroom which caters for adults or children with the option of a king size or twin beds. High quality Vi-Spring mattresses and crisp white Egyptian cotton linens ensure a good night's sleep.

The owners live in the adjoining barn and share the surrounding orchard and paddock. The private terrace beside the ornamental pond is simply out of this world but please keep an eye on little ones as the water is deep. If you can drag yourselves away there are a dazzling array of sandy beaches to choose from within a short drive including Fistral, Porth, Holywell Bay and Mawgan Porth. Watergate Bay has become the Mecca for water sports and the Extreme Academy on the beach certainly lives up to its name. The beach is also home a superb hotel with spa and Jamie Oliver's restaurant Fifteen which you will need to book in advance. There is a good foodie pub about a mile away plus further fantastic food options within easy driving distance at Padstow, Truro, Newquay and Mawgan Porth.

For larger groups we also let the adjoining property The Hideaway (ref 1715) which sleeps 2.

Viewed as one of Cornwall’s best surfing beaches, Watergate Bay also offers sand yachting, paragliding, kite surfing, cliff climbing, and abseiling. The area is a favourite with walkers, with the South West Coast Path extending west toward Newquay and east to Padstow, through some of the county’s most dramatic coastal scenery.

Peace and tranquillity are assured in this beautiful area with roaring surf, great beaches and much to see and do right on the doorstep.
