About Skyber Barn

Skyber Barn will knock your socks off. Despite its contemporary feel, this beautiful barn conversion sits easily in its rural location in North Cornwall, with guests able to enjoy distant views towards the Atlantic Ocean from the BBQ terrace. The barn sleeps up to eight people in three bedrooms and is ideal for families or friends. The finish is superb, with furnishings and appliances that are extremely comfortable as well as stylish. Skyber Barn is one of just four self-catering properties on the family-run Pencuke Farm, where the owners raise sheep, pigs, chickens and alpacas. Each property is private and self-contained and can be booked independently or together with others to accommodate extended families or groups of friends. Please see the owner's website for more details.

Life in North Cornwall is heavily focused on the beaches, and it's no wonder - they're stunning. Pencuke Farm is just over two miles from Crackington Haven, where the beach is a favourite with families for its relatively sheltered conditions that lend themselves well to swimming, paddle boarding and surfing. Nearby Bude is also popular for sunbathing and watersports, with several surf schools where you can hone your skills and hire equipment if it's required. Other beaches to visit include Trebarwith Strand, Port Isaac, Bossiney and Widemouth Bay. Enhancing the seaside experience is the long-distance South West Coast Path which affords breathtaking views in every season. The area around Skyber Barn and Crackington Haven has an excellent network of lanes and cycle routes. Pencuke Farm has storage for guests who bring bikes, surfboards, paddle-boards and other sports equipment, as well as an area to rinse the salty water of the Atlantic off their wetsuits.

Day trips can include marvelling in the magic of Tintagel Castle, walking beside Boscastle Harbour, getting your thrills on the rides at The Big Sheep or the Milky Way Adventure Park, playing golf and, of course, tucking into at least one delicious cream tea - jam on the bottom, cream on the top is the Cornish way!

Shared amenities at Pencuke Farm include a games room with table tennis and a pool table, a boules court, 18-acres of farmland to explore and enjoy, a picnic and barbecue area.
