A selection of secluded farm holiday cottages that offer superior holiday accommodation in a delightful location surrounded by meadows, fishing lakes, woods and ponds.
These attractive and unique properties are discreetly tucked away at the end of the owners own private lane, yet benefit from being only a few miles from the dramatic rugged coast of North Cornwall with its beautiful beaches, little coves and pretty harbours.
Hele Barton Farm is particularly appealing to guests who are looking for a peaceful quiet place to stay and those who appreciate natural surroundings yet want to be within easy reach of the coast.
This is the perfect place for relaxing where you can wander through woods and pastures and see an abundance of wildlife or quietly watch the badgers at dusk and dawn. You may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the deer as they emerge from the woods at sunset and for those who are keen on fishing, you can enjoy carp fishing on the private lake and ponds.
Alternatively, sit back and relax in the tranquility and beauty of the natural surroundings - what could be more relaxing than lazing under a big oak tree on a sunny day with a good book or taking a picnic in the orchard or by the lake.
Hele Barton has so much to offer for those who are looking for a relaxing holiday or those who want to explore the many delights that North Cornwall has to offer.
