A beautifully converted 300 year old Cornish barn. Available for holiday lets, located between Padstow and Newquay on the coast. It's a peaceful spot, for those that want space of their own, but is well-connected to everything you'd need.

Immaculate inside, with a spacious kitchen with everything you'd need, a lovely living room and dining space and a downstairs toilet. Upstairs, you'll find two wood-beamed bedrooms and a nicely finished bathroom.

There is also a delightful private garden, with a sunny terrace under a glass awning, patio table and chairs, and a BBQ for your use.

It's a light and airy space of your own in an unrivalled location on the North Cornish coast, which provides relaxation from the very start of your holiday.

Nearby, you'll find quaint Cornish pubs, like The Falcon and The Cornish Arms (run by Rick Stein). As well as fine dining at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate Bay and Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant in Padstow. Padstow is in fact just five miles away and has pubs, shops, restaurants and its beautiful bay and estuary. Hiring bikes to cycle The Camel Estuary is well worth doing.

Just across the road from Skiber An Hyli is a dramatic headland walk, with a secluded beach called Diggory. The nearest beach is Pothcothan, 1 mile away, which is ideal for families with its sandy stretch to the sea.

The West Country region

Cornwall is a magical place for a holiday. It is naturally beautiful, with dramatic coastline, quaint fishing villages and beautiful green countryside.

There's lots to do - from delicious food and drink (fresh seafood & fish and chips, Cornish cream teas, the famous Cornish pasty and real ales), to visitor attractions like The Eden Project, The Minnack Theatre, Land's End, and Poldark and Daphne du Maurier country.

It's a beautiful, rural part of England - a place where you feel instantly relaxe - but also with a massive amount of sights and activities to keep you entertained, active or inspired.


Surrounding Skiber An Hyli is an area with a wealth of things to see, do and experience. Rick Stein's famous Seafood Restaurant at Padstow is only 5 miles away. Also at Padstow is an array of pasty and fish & chip shops, a beautiful estuary with sandy beach, a quaint working harbour, and The Camel Trail. You can also take the ferry over the estuary to the lovely village of Rock.

In the other direction from Skiber An Hyli is Newquay, a vibrant town, for fans of surfing with the magnificent Watergate Bay and Fistral Beach. Families or sun-worshippers will love the long golden beaches. Jamie Oliver's Fifteen is a wonderful beachside restaurant not far from the house.

In the glorious Cornish countryside surrounding Skiber An Hyli, there are plenty of farm shops and village pubs to explore too.

Family attractions include Old MacDonalds Farm, riding stables, waterports on Watergate Bay & Newquay Zoo.
