Small but perfectly formed; the beautifully converted 400 year old granary is the perfect bolthole, mixing a rural farm-stay with the dramatic ocean. Escape and explore the unspoilt Devonian and Cornish clifftops and beaches along the South West coast path just minutes from your front door.

Once a granary this cosy little converted barn is in the heart of the working farmstay and the roar of the Atlantic can be heard and seen as you sup wine in the garden. Puffin's Nest is nestled in the farmhouse courtyard, step down into the open plan retreat with high ceilings and quirky granary windows. Snuggle down into the leather sofa and cuddle by the woodburner watching films on the digital TV. Fully WiFi ready and connected escaping has never been so easy!


The bantam kitchen is fully equipped to scramble some freshly laid eggs on the Smeg stove, and toast some homemade bread for a romantic breakfast in bed. With a welcome pack of locally sourced goodies - foodies and gluttons rest assured.


Up the spiral staircase on the mezzanine is the most magnificently re-worked driftwood double bed tucked under the original wooden eaves. It is the perfect hideaway after a day surfing on the pretty-much private beach below, a few minutes' walk away down the coastal path.


Cosy though Puffin's Nest may be, it houses a freestanding roll top bath; a heavenly soak beckons after a long coastal walk breathing in gallons of the fresh sea air.


Puffin's Nest looks out at the family farmhouse, which is set in 500 acres of rolling farmland. With ponies, lambs and chickens all playing outside happiness is certainly found outdoors. Your own little seating area looks out to sea; take a blanket and snuggle up whilst watching the sun go down. The farm leads straight down to Berry beach, an almost private beach with access just off the coast path (and perfect for surfing). Pack both your Hunter wellies and your flip-flops to make the most of farm vs coast.


Puffin's Nest has plenty of parking just outside the property - be sure to watch out for roaming chickens (and tractors) as you arrive.


Hartland is right on the Devon/ Cornwall border so you have the best of both worlds. We recommend nearby:

Docton Gardens in Hartland, RHS Rosemoor in Torrington, Marans, Tea on the Green and The Pier Restaurant in Westward Ho!, Life's a Beach in Bude, The Burton Art Gallery in Bideford, the Tarka Trail Bike Rides atTorrington/Bideford/Barnstaple, Clovelly Village and Hartland Abbey.


Puffin's Nest is fully WiFi ready, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.

Dog friendly

Unfortunately dogs are no longer accepted at Puffin's Nest.
