The Swallows Barn

£386 - £926 per week

The conversion of this farmyard barn has been sympathetically undertaken retaining original features, including beamed ceilings and Delabole slate floor slabs, which feature in the entrance hallway. Traditional joinery, using natural oak and timber reclaimed from the original farmhouse, gives an earthy vibe to this delightful farmstead. All rooms are very spacious yet cosy and homely too. There's a family friendly kitchen and dining area which flows into the sitting room, it's a real country retreat. The Swallows Barn sits within the farm run by a local family, and from the kitchen window you can see cattle and sheep grazing the pastures, and beyond the farm yard there are wonderful sea views across Widemouth Bay, and on a clear day, you can even see Lundy Island.

If it is a laid back countryside holiday you are searching for, life on the farm at Higher Trewint will suit you perfectly. The farm is just under two miles from the Atlantic Highway, for easy access to explore the surrounding areas. Bude is only an 8 mile drive, where you will find an array of unique shops, supermarkets, eateries and large sandy beaches with many recreational facilities. In fact you don't have to go that far, there are public footpaths which can be joined from very nearby The Swallows Barn, so on a beautiful day, you can pack up a rucksack and walk towards the coast to join into the South West Coastal path. You will discover some amazing little coves and Millook and Wanson beaches nestle exclusively beside Widemouth Bay. If you want to discover the magic of the coastline, be it the larger beaches or pretty and picturesque bays, this holiday destination will fulfil every dream.

Beaches in Bude

Fancy a sneak preview? View our Bude webcam here>

Crooklets Beach

At low tide, a large expanse of golden sand is exposed, along with rocky outcrops which are great for rock pooling. The beach can be reached by a short walk over Summerleaze Down or down the hill from the town centre. Crooklets is very popular with surfers, but also perfect for families, with great facilities including a large car park, beach café, skate park, showers, and pubs close by. Dogs are welcome on this beach except between 15th May and 30 September, 10am to 6pm when a seasonal dog ban is in place.

Summerleaze Beach

Boasting the iconic Sea Pool, and only a five minute walk from the centre of Bude, Summerleaze Beach is Bude’s central hub of sand, surf and sun. It’s the first port of call for many visitors. Clean, safe and easy on the eye, Summerleaze Beach is a big hit with surfers, sun-bathers and families. However, it is the sheer variety of activities that mark Summerleaze as arguably one of the best beaches in Cornwall for outdoor pursuits and water sports. Dogs are welcome but must be on leads from 21st May to 30th September from 10am-6pm.

Widemouth Bay Beach

Stretching across one and a half miles of golden sands, Widemouth Bay is divided into two halves, the North beach and the South beach, separated by a natural barrier of rock known as Black Rock. As the tide retreats, amazing rock formations are exposed - perfect for rock-pooling!

Northcott Mouth Beach

Three miles North of Bude, is the small rocky beach Northcott Mouth, owmed by the National Trust. As the tide drops, the beach opens up to expansive sand with rock pools dotted all around - perfect for exploring. Dogs welcomed all year round. 

Sandymouth Beach

Four miles North of Bude is the National Trust beach, Sandymouth. Backed by sweeping cliffs, this large sandy beach is popular all year round, especially with dog owners as it welcomes dogs year round.

Fantastic holiday in this beautiful home would highly recommend fantastic value for money

Lovely and peaceful everything about swallows barn was excellent would certainly recommend swallows barn to anyone who wants a peaceful relaxing holiday

Wow wow and wow. This place is most certainly the wow factor

You never know when arriving at the holiday let whether it’s going to live up to expectations and the photos but The Swallow Barn completely surpassed it. It is like a home away from home and no expense spared on the furnishings and fittings, it’s so spacious but also cosy. The pint of milk in the fridge and tea, coffee and Cornish biscuits on arrival was such a lovely touch! The sunsets over the farm behind were just something to be seen in the evening.

I was a little worried about any noise from a working farm but we didn’t hear a thing and it was so peaceful. 4 adults and 1 child and 1 dog lived more than comfortably for the 3 nights and we did not want to leave! The location is also perfect for access into Bude and we spent many hours at Widemouth Bay which is under 10 mins away.

We will definitely be coming back and would recommend to everyone we know! 5 star!

We enjoyed a lovely few days exploring and walking the beautiful coast around Bude. The Swallows Barn was a perfect base for this and a comfortable, homely space to relax in.

Very comfortable accomodation which was fitted out to a high standard. Perfectly located for visiting North Cornwall's beaches. Welcoming and helpful owners. Decorated beautifully for our Christmas stay. Lovely welcome pack of food and wine. Perfect hideaway to do as much or as little as you want. We normally spend Christmas away but this was probably the best break that we've had to date. Highly recommended.

Visited Bude, Padstow, Boscastle, Tintagel, Fowey, Par, Rock and Polzeath, all easily accessable .Fabulous beaches,grandchildren loved body boarding. Had a lovely meal at the Horseshoe pub in Tresparret, Camelford on Tues which just happened to be steak night ( £10 with all the trimmings ) which we all had ( 6 of us ) photos on the wall of an episode of Doc Martin filmed at the pub. Lovely bakery in Boscastle selling pasties and cakes. We bought a huge fresh crab from Padstow harbour which was delicious.Lovely fish and chips from Padstow.

We have just enjoyed a short holiday in Cornwall staying at The Swallows Barn which we booked through 'Aspects Holidays'. The customer service we experienced with 'Aspects Holidays' was excellent. They gave us all the information required and sent us a useful information booklet with directions, entry codes etc. The Swallows Barn surpassed our expectations. It was absolutely beautiful, clean spacious and had everything we needed especially the peace and tranquillity and views.
