NEW - massive £100 discount for COUPLES, available all year round apart from school holidays.

DOG-FRIENDLY self-catering converted barn set in an 'area of outstanding natural beauty' on our own working farm. Stylish and comfortable. Right on the coast in wonderful North Cornwall with our local town the famous PADSTOW.

WALKERS: our land borders the South West Coastal Path. Head west for the breathtaking BEDRUTHAN STEPS, or east for the awe inspiring TREVOSE HEAD: the views are incredible.

GOLFERS: we are only a mile from TREVOSE GOLF CLUB. It has 18 and 9 hole links courses. The views over Constantine bay are incredible.

BEACH LOVERS: there are so many golden sandy beaches to choose from, and they are all DOG-FRIENDLY. Our local beach PORTHCOTHAN Bay is an 8 minute walk. It has a fabulous natural swimming pool at low-tide. Whether you love to swim, surf, go rock-pooling, build sandcastles or just breath in the ozone, this is the place to be.

CYCLISTS:the CAMEL TRAIL is a 10 minute drive away. It runs all the way from Padstow to Bodmin Moor via Wadebridge. Easy bike hire at the trail. Absolutely astounding scenery: the stretch that runs alongside the estuary faces the golden sands of Rock. The inland stretch is so tranquil with water courses a plenty.

GASTRONOMERS: you are about to enter foodie heaven. Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant is in Padstow, as is Paul Ainsworth's (trained by Gordon Ramsay) No 6. Nathan Outlaw with his 2 Michelin stars is at Port Issac. Or just down the coast at Watergate Bay is Jamie Oliver's 15. Treat yourself to some seriously good wining and dining. And talking of wine - don't miss the WINE TASTING at Camel Valley Vineyard.

DOGS: we love you and you are warmly welcomed. You can walk wherever you wish on our land, you'll love the coast path and the beach, and the views are incredible. There is a nice patio for you to lie around in, all enclosed. Hopefully you have trained your owners to clean up after you, and keep you on a lead when our sheep are near. We trust you don't mind staying downstairs and off the furniture. Some people don't love dogs as much as we do.


The Linney is a semi-detached converted barn tastefully furnished and decorated to an excellent standard with pretty fabrics and soft colours. A brand new bathroom and kitchen have recently been added. We think it looks great.

Upstairs there is a double room and a twin room, plus a family bathroom with bath, separate shower, WC and basin. Ceilings are open-pitched, high and beamed giving an airy tranquil feel. Our beds are super comfortable.

Downstairs is a large open plan kitchen, living room and dining area. The kitchen has been newly refurbished with beautiful granite worktops and the usual mod cons.

The front door opens onto a walled gated patio - perfect for sandy dogs. This patio is the best sun-trap on the farm. It faces south and is cradled by slate walls that absorb the heat. Just right for a cold glass of white wine on a warm summer evening.

There is also a communal lawn and off-road parking spaces at the front, shared with the 2 other conversions that make up this barn complex. Its a great space for a family BBQ. And when there are waves, you can hear the ocean.


We are close to local amenities with a pub at the end of the road, a proper village called St Merryn a 5 min drive away (pubs, restaurants, garage, bakers, newsagent, surf shop and hire, convenience store, takeaway, fish 'n' chip shop), and our local town of Padstow 5 miles away with supermarket. If you want to do your SUPERMARKET SHOP online, Sainsbury, Tesco, Asda all deliver to PL28 8PN. Minimum hassle...maximum relaxation for your holiday.

In the high season the small campsite run by our family has a bar which serves food, a shop, and a play park which you are welcome to use. There is fun family entertainment most nights in the summer school holidays too.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: As well as being in one of the most beautiful parts of the world, never mind Cornwall, we are lucky enough to have NEWQUAY AIRPORT 10 minutes away. Leave the car at home and immerse yourself in tranquility. We are on the Newquay - Padstow Western Greyhound bus route too, so you can go exploring this beautiful county, while someone else does the driving.
