Warbrook, sleeping up to five guests, is a gorgeous detached barn conversion on the owner’s working smallholding, 1.3 miles from the picturesque village of Bradworthy in Devon.

In a quiet, rural setting and surrounded by lush meadows, this contemporary cottage offers spacious, luxury accommodation for friends or family. The cottage has been beautifully restored from an old farm building, has plenty of character and feels warm and cosy all year round, with underfloor heating throughout.

The open plan living space has vaulted ceilings with wooden beams and a wood burner which is a fabulous focal point in the room and ensures that guests will be as warm as toast. The modern kitchen area has a range cooker and a dining area, so that guests can sit and dine together in comfort.

Leading off either side of the living area are the two spacious bedroom suites, separated from each other by the sitting area, thereby offering privacy. The king-size double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower, a dressing room and TV and the twin bedroom has an en-suite walk-in shower, a day bed for an extra guest and TV.

Positioned next to the farmhouse, the cottage has its own garden enclosed by a Devon hedgebank, complete with a play area and attractive raised beds full of flowers and shrubs.

There are some gorgeous countryside walks around the tiny village of Sutcombe, following the river and weaving between woodland and fields. The local village of Bradworthy has plenty of interesting small grocery shops and pubs set around the traditional village square. The dramatic North Cornwall coastline is only 10 minutes in the car, where there are stunning cliff-top walks along the South West Coast Path. There are some pretty fishing villages to explore such as Clovelly and Appledore and long, sandy beaches in the Bude area, with Bude itself offering great beaches, superb surfing and a variety of amenities. Stately home lovers will be spoiled and why not finish with a scrumptious Devonshire cream tea?

You will be sure of a peaceful holiday at this luxurious barn conversion.

ABOUT THE LOCATION

With its large village square surrounded by cottages, village shops, garage and pub (renowned locally for its beer and good food), Bradworthy is the perfect example of the typical Devon country village. Off the beaten track and surrounded by the lush green pastures of North Devon, it provides the perfect base for a truly relaxing holiday in an area with several top class visitor attractions.

Just 3 miles away the Tamar Lakes provide fishing and an array of watersports for the enthusiast, while south-west is the beach resort of Bude, with its outstanding surfing, rocky coves, golf course and restaurants.

Several excellent stretches of the SW Coast Path, the beach at Welcombe Mouth, Hartland Point Quay and Lighthouse and the beautiful cliff-side village of Clovelly and bike riding on the Tarka Trail are some of the attractions that should not be missed in this fascinating area.

FAMILY ATTRACTIONS

Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre (19.5 miles), near Launceston. A wonderful day out where you will see British and Asian Short Clawed Otters playing and being fed close at hand. There are many other species roaming around the 21 acre grounds as well as several birds of prey. The Centre relies entirely of visitor funding to support their important conservation work, especially otter rehabilitation.

The Milky Way Adventure Park (9.5 miles) provides all weather family entertainment including Roller Coasters, Dodgems, a living maze and live Birds of Prey and magic shows throughout the day. It also has a huge indoor play area with giant slides and an assault course.

Trethorne Leisure Park, near Launceston (25.7 miles), combines a fun park and animal park. There is also a vast play area, including a 45,000 sq ft indoor area, 10-pin bowling and an 18-hole golf course open to non-members.

Launceston Steam Railway (20 miles) is a narrow gauge steam railway running from the historic Cornish town of Launceston, through the picturesque Valley of the river Kensey, to the hamlet of Newmills. There is a riverside farm park at Newmills with a café and picnic tables and many indoor and outdoor games which are particularly suitable for younger children. From Newmills there is also a choice of footpaths including a hilly walk to Tregadillet and its renowned pub, the Eliot Arms, or a 2 mile more level walk to the Hidden Valley.

Hidden Valley Discovery Park “next door” to Trethorne (27.5 miles). A beautiful nature reserve complete with a Beech Hedge Maze, miniature ride-on railway and a Hobbit’s Garden, with treasure hunt-style trails. All trails lead to a “Crystal Maze” style vault where you have to crack the codes against the clock!

CASTLES, HOUSES & GARDENS

Poundstock Gildhouse (16 miles). Grade 1 listed and beautifully preserved, this Cornish heritage site is a great surviving example of a medieval church house. Open Easter- October and entry is free.

Hawker’s Hut, Morwenstow (10 miles) is the National Trust’s smallest UK heritage property. A lovely detour, perhaps as part of a walk, this dwelling might be pint-sized, but contains plenty of intrigue.

Docton Mill Gardens & Tea Rooms (10.4 miles). Docton Mill Wild Flower Gardens lie in a stunning valley, 1km from the Atlantic coast. The aim is to make everything as natural as possible and there are many varieties of plants. Docton Mill Gardens has a tea room, with local, home grown produce and cream teas.

Hartland Abbey and Gardens (11.7 miles). A Georgian mansion, built upon a 12th century monastery, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Open between the end of March until October. Hartland Abbey also features many seasonal events, such as Daffodil Day, an Easter Fun weekend, Bluebell Sundays each April and outdoor theatre productions throughout the summer.

Clovelly Court Gardens (11 miles). An outstanding restored Victorian kitchen garden adjoining Clovelly Court manor house. Within the walls of the garden are a range of traditional fruits and vegetables.

Clovelly is a charming and unusual fishing village. The quay dates back to the 14th Century and access to the quay and local pub is via a steep cobbled street – too steep for vehicles and therefore all provisions and supplies are brought into the village using wooden sledges and donkeys! The village has a strong tie to Charles Kingsley who lived there as a child and was inspired to write the Water Babies and Westwood Ho! whilst in Clovelly. Clovelly retains its timeless charm with original craft shops, tea rooms and villager cottages and an extensive visitor centre.

Launceston Castle, English Heritage (20 miles). An unusual 13th century keep set on a large natural mound. The Castle dominates the surrounding landscape and the tower top can be reached via an internal staircase to offer breath-taking views of the historic town and countryside.

EVENTS
Bude’s annual events include Bude Carnival in August and the renowned Jazz Festival and Bude For Food Festival in September.
In October the Boscastle Festival of ‘Real Food’, Arts & Crafts and the April Boscastle Walking Week are hosted here.
