Perfect For Couples
Once a granary this cosy little converted barn is in the heart of the working farmstay and on the cusp of the south west coast path - the roar of the ocean 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!Eating
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.Sleeping
Up the spiral staircase on the mezzanine is the most magnificently re-worked driftwood master bed. The double bed under the original wooden eaves is the perfect hideaway after a day surfing on the pretty-much private beach below, a few minutes' walk away down the coastal path.Bathing
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.Garden
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 - especially if you want to bring your dog too. Your own little seating area looks out to sea; take a blanket and snuggle up with hot chocolates 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.Parking
Puffin's Nest has plenty of parking just outside the property - be sure to watch out for roaming chickens (and tractors) as you arrive.Exploring
