Hidden away within the farmlands of Watergate Bay in gorgeous North Cornwall, this charming former barn is a mere seven-minute drive from Newquay Beach. In this traditional stone building, the interiors carefully balance rustic elements of the former farm with elegant, modern sensibilities. You can’t help but immediately notice the vast, high ceilings and thick beams welcoming you to the living space. Its chunky, wooden dining bench is ideal for gathering everyone around with a glass of red wine to say cheers to the start of the holiday. From the open-plan lounge, fitted with a bespoke log burning fire, you can enjoy sweeping views of rolling green fields from the picturesque Juliet balcony. And on warm summer nights, head out to the large terrace and light up the barbecue. On your second patio, you’ll find a sun-drenched spot with comfy loungers for reclining and soaking up the sun. It’s also a perfect pad for surf fans, with an outdoor shower and a board storage area round the back. After riding the waves on the Cornish coast, there’s nothing better than coming home and cosying up by the fire with a tumbler of whisky in hand.
