Dutch Barn has been newly converted to a luxury, dog friendly, holiday cottage that sleeps up to 8 adults plus cots.
The conversion produces a piece of modern architecture that embraces materials such as a zinc roof, western red cedar cladding and glulam beams. The overall design harks back to the industrial feel of the original barn. Sustainability is at the heart of the design and all the heating, hot water and electrical facilities are powered by solar power or though a biomass boiler that uses a renewable source of wood pellets.
Forming part of Pencuke Farm, Dutch Barn is one of 6 holiday cottages where you can benefit from the superb facilities available on the site. As with all the cottages and barn conversions, guests have use of a large lawned recreation area, communal BBQ terrace that enjoys stunning views, the games room with pool table and table football and access to the 18 acres of farm land. Subject to availability, fresh farm produce can be purchased on site.
Pencuke Farm is only a few miles inland from the spectacular north Cornwall coast around Crackington Haven. With this dramatic coastline and stunning countryside all round to explore, this really is a fantastic place to stay. The farm offers guests the opportunity to relax against a stunning backdrop, whilst being located close to beaches and all the outdoor activities you would expect to enjoy from a holiday in Cornwall.

The usual layout is two double rooms (5' beds) and two twin rooms (3' beds). However each set of twin beds can be joined together on request to make a 6' bed. All bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom. Three of the bathrooms have a bath with overhead power shower. The fourth bathroom has a bath and a separate spacious walk in shower. The barn benefits from an open plan L-shaped living area with a wonderful vaulted ceiling and exposed glulam beams.

The farm is located 1.6 miles from Crackington Haven, which is included in the best surfing beaches in England and was recommended by the Marine Conservation Society in its Good Beach Guide. The scenery in the beach area of the surrounding majestic cliffs is almost unrivalled. At high tide, the beach is a mass of quartz-veined pebbles and large boulders but at low tide, it reveals an expanse of sand and many rock pools. Only the road separates the sea from a couple of beach shops, two superb beach cafes and a public house with a restaurant and fantastic terrace. The farm is located in the parish of St. Gennys, which prides itself on the excellence of its public paths with the National Trust owning most of the cliff and adjacent farmland.
As you travel down the coastline, you can visit quaint coastal villages such as Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac, the latter offering a range of fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy the freshest and most delicious fish.
Fifteen minutes up the coast is Bude, a popular tourist destination for both its surfing and fantastic family beaches in Widemouth Bay. The watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards allows for some of the best surfing in the world alongside swimming and a whole host of water-based activities. Bude today is a lovely sea-side town, the main shopping streets and inter-connecting alleyways play host to a wide range of locally owned shops, restaurants and pubs. There are boutiques, shoes, arts & crafts, jewellery, hand-made gifts and souvenirs.
Six miles inland is Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cornwall at its wildest and rich in ancient history, Bodmin Moor stretches for 30 miles through the heart of the County of Cornwall and offers spectacular walking and horse riding. With easy access to the both the A30 and the Atlantic Highway you can quickly travel up and down the South-West to enjoy some of the larger tourist attractions that Devon and Cornwall have to offer.
