Mowhay Barn, Padstow
A short drive from the charming town of Padstow is Mowhay Barn, a converted barn that now functions as a luxurious holiday home. A charming property that has been specially designed to appeal to today’s traveller, offering all the home comforts, modern conveniences and general necessities in a fabulous setting.
The building itself is large enough to accommodate eight people and the well-kept grounds are impressive: there’s a beautiful lawn that spans 2.5 acres and a summer house with sea views. You can also make use of the patio area, which comes with a BBQ and fire pit, plus a hot tub with enough room for six people. Inside, there’s more than enough room for everyone to relax without feeling as if they’re living in one another’s pockets. As well as the main living area, the property has a den, a sunroom and a reading room. The decor combines contemporary luxury with rustic charm, creating an atmosphere that’s warm, inviting and pleasant. Guests will no doubt enjoy seeing features such as exposed beams and natural stonework.
With more than enough space, Mowhay Barn is great for large families and groups, offering plenty of space for entertaining. When not making the most of the property, take advantage of your time here and see as much of Cornwall as you can. You’re a short drive from the coast and the many beaches that attract people to the area. If you’re keen to get in the water, visit one of the local water sports centres and have some lessons in kayaking, paddle boarding or surfing. For something just as exciting, there’s Camel Creek Theme Park, a popular attraction for families. Another must-do is The Lost Gardens of Heligan, which nature lovers will no doubt love visiting.
