About Hideaway Retreat, beautifully converted Grade II listed barn (sleeps 2), Watergate Bay
A fabulous retreat for two, The Hideaway has serious wow factor.
Part of a beautifully converted Grade II listed barn, the lofty interior is simply incredible.
Put your feet up in front of the wood burning stove in the magnificent open plan living space and sleep in an enormous superking size bed on the galleried mezzanine above.
For sheer indulgence you can sip champagne in the freestanding bath which sits majestically in the centre of the bedroom.
A little terrace beside the ornamental pond is perfect for sunny breakfasts and there is also an orchard leading to a paddock which are shared with the owners who live in the adjacent barn. The Hideaway sits within the grounds of the former landed Figg-Hoblyn estate and a walk through the nearby woodland will reveal the ruins of the manor house, left to rack and ruin after a family dispute; in fact the heir to the estate has never been found after disappearing to America during the Second World War.
Off the beaten track, this a lovely quiet spot yet it is only three miles to the north coast at Watergate Bay giving you the best of both worlds; absolute peace and quiet within easy reach of coastal life.
Other nearby beaches include Fistral, Porth, Holywell Bay and Mawgan Porth.
For watersports the Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay cannot be beaten with everything from kite surfing to waveskiing to hand planing (no we didn’t know what it was either).
If you would rather be relaxing then a spot of spa pampering can be arranged at The Watergate Bay, Bedruthan Steps or Scarlet Hotel, all of which are within a few miles.
Foodies should head to Rick Stein at Padstow or Nathan Outlaw at Port Isaac, both of which you will need to book in advance, failing that there is a good foodie pub less than a mile away.
To top it all off the owners provide a delicious cream tea on arrival plus logs for the wood burner. For larger groups we also let the adjoining property The Lost Barn (ref 1662) which sleeps 4.
