Approached along pretty Cornish lanes leading through quiet valleys, Goose Barn provides all the right ingredients for a peaceful and truly relaxing break. Set in a glorious rural location with views from the garden out to the coast, high in the hills above Boscastle, this single-storey barn conversion is a great place to explore but also to unwind. Spend your days discovering wonderful woodlands walks, marvelling at the stunning sea vistas along the coastal footpath or browsing around pretty harbourside villages.
Beautifully converted, the slate and wooden floors and vaulted ceiling set the scene for tasteful interiors that cleverly blend modern with antique furniture and the wood-burning stove is a welcoming sight on cooler days.
Outside is a pretty orchard garden and a sunny terrace - the perfect spot for reflecting on your day's adventure over an afternoon cream tea (jam first please - we are in Cornwall!).
Going out for the day? Well the charming owners who live next door are always willing to offer you suggestions whilst totally respecting your privacy (they also have a small office across the drive).
Babies under 18 months old are welcome at Goose Barn.
Best bring your wellies, your walking boots and your flip flops to make the most of this superb location. Browse around the harbour and shops in the nearby village of Boscastle, explore the scenic Valency Valley or visit the farm shop and cafe with panoramic sea views and delicious food from its elevated spot. Feel the sand between your toes at Crackington Haven and take to the waves at Widemouth Bay and Polzeath.
The South West Coast Path will provide endless miles of thrilling scenery or for a contrast in views, head inland to ramble across the wide open spaces on Bodmin Moor. Tintagel, steeped in Arthurian Legend, is well worth a visit and discover literary connections with author and poet Thomas Hardy at nearby St Juliot's Church. Picture perfect Port Isaac, known to some as Port Wenn in TV's 'Doc Martin' is an absolute winner, with its dinky quay, art galleries, shops, traditional inns and restaurants galore.
You can enjoy more of the great outdoors on two wheels by cycling along the renowned Camel Trail which winds its way 17 miles from Bodmin Moor out to Padstow on the coast.
