About Dutch Barn

Dutch Barn is a special property in a spectacular location. Light, spacious and modern with high spec furnishings, the contemporary barn is a beautiful place where families and friends can relax in comfort. Enjoy lazing in the outdoor Jacuzzi with a cold drink and a sky full of stars, laughter-filled barbecues on long summer nights, and comfort at every turn. Dutch Barn is on the family-owned Pencuke Farm, surrounded by 18 acres of countryside and within easy reach of Crackington Haven, Bude and Boscastle. With space for eight people to sleep in four bedrooms, it is ideal for families, extended families and groups of friends.

Pencuke Farm is an oasis. It is part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty only two miles from Crackington Haven and within easy reach of Bude and Widemouth Bay. It's a gorgeous walk from the cottage to the South West Coast Path, or bring a bike and explore the area's lanes and cycleways. The owners keep sheep, alpacas and pigs. Collecting eggs from the flock of free-range chickens is a highlight for younger guests, while the games room is popular with all ages. There is storage for bikes, surfboards and other sports equipment, and even a place to hose off your wetsuit when you're done. In short, everything you could look for in self-catering holiday home in North Cornwall.

You'll never run out of ideas for having fun during your holiday at Dutch Barn. If you're not walking along the coastal footpath, cycling through the countryside, or taking a dip in the Atlantic, you could be wandering around the ancient walls of Tintagel Castle, crabbing from the harbour walls at Boscastle, pedalling down the Bude Canal, or doing one of a dozens other activities. Other local attractions include The Big Sheep, Milkyway Adventure Park, and the aquarium at Ilfracombe. Stroll around beautiful gardens at Clovelly Court, Prideaux Place and Docton Mill, shop at a local market or take lessons in cooking, surfing, photography, or anything else that takes your fancy.

In addition to Dutch Barn, Pencuke Farm has two other rentals and a shepherd's hut for those seeking the excitement of glamping. All of them are private and self-contained and can be booked independently or, depending on availability, together to accommodate groups. Please see the owner's website for information.

Location (Cornwall)

Looking at the stylish Dutch Barn, it's almost impossible to believe that this sleek holiday home was once a functional agricultural building. The original shape is still visible with the steel frame enhanced with zinc, red cedar and Glulam beams to create a welcoming space with a very contemporary feel and sustainable environmentally friendly principles at its heart.

You the Dutch Barn on the ground floor and go up a flight of steps to the accommodation which is all on the first floor.

Accommodation Comprises:

  • Long L-shaped living/dining room with a wall of glazed doors opening onto the deck, bringing the outdoors inside in summer and filling the room with natural light. Underfloor heating ensures guests are cosy and warm in even the coldest weather.
  • Wide corner sofa with ample seating to put your feet up. Watch a film on the 48-inch TV, play on the games console, or light the log burner and settle in for a night of talking, games and catching up with some of your favourite people.
  • At the other end of the room, a dining table seats 10 people with plenty of elbow room.
  • Cooking for eight, or even 10, hungry people is a doddle in this contemporary kitchen which boasts high spec appliances including a modern range cooker and an American-style fridge-freezer with ice maker. It's another light, welcoming space with a breakfast bar for casual meals and snacks.
  • Utility room with laundry facilities (including a tumble dryer).
  • Four gorgeous ensuite bedrooms mean there won't be fighting over who sleeps where. Two of the rooms have kingsize beds and all bedrooms have ample storage and a TV with Freeview channels.
  • Two bedrooms have twin single beds as a default layout, however both can be joined into a super-kingsize bed if preferred. Please let the owner know your requirements when booking. One of the rooms has direct access to the deck and enclosed garden.
  • Three of the chic ensuite bathrooms have a power shower over the bath, while the fourth has a walk-in shower and a separate bath. All ensuites have a WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The Dutch Barn has a big enclosed garden with a large sunken deck furnished with an outdoor sofa, dining table and chairs, sun loungers and a hot tub for eight people, plus a barbecue and level lawn area. Guests also have use of the shared games room and 18 acres of farmland to explore. Electric vehicle charger (7.2kw) is available to guests (pay per use).
