Welcome to Steppes Farm Holiday Cottages near Tintagel in Cornwall.
Set in an almost secret valley on the edge of Bodmin Moor – but only 10 minutes from civilisation.
Traditional Barn Owl Cottage is a fabulous light and airy barn conversion only 7m from the beach. There is the added bonus of a hot tub and sauna :o)) Ideal to unwind and let those cares drift away. Our water is from our own spring and it's delicious.
Steppes Farm has a magical caring atmosphere that you notice the moment you arrive. It is a pleasure living here and we are delighted to share our home with you guys, who I hope will enjoy it as much as we do ! We love having visitors to stay in the beautiful Cornish countryside of this fabulous part of Britain.
At night the only noises are the hoot of owls and the snuffling of nocturnal wildlife. On clear nights (no light pollution here), the skies are inky black and dotted with a million stars, the most incredible that I have seen anywhere in the world - best viewed from the hot tub – the perfect end to a perfect day x
Bodmin Moor is now a designated International Dark Sky Landscape. The very first classified Dark Sky Park in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Barn Owl Cottage has stunning views with charming, immaculate and luxuriously spacious accommodation. This character Cottage, with its very interesting upside-down arrangement, has gorgeous soft furnishings and offers a relaxing atmosphere with exposed beams. Barn Owl Cottage is warm in winter with a cosy coal burner, while being cool and refreshing in summer. We are happy to provide the usual comfy towels and linens.
Our aim is simple - to provide you with immaculate farm cottage accommodation so that you have a wonderful time you will always remember.
2 PERSON RATE - Barn Owl Cottage is ideal for either 2 or 4 guests and there are two tariff bands above to reflect this. To attract our 'couples discount' we ask that 2 adults share one bedroom (plus a cot if required) - please contact us for prices.
FOR SHORT BREAKS - nightly prices shown are for 3 nights, please contact us for 4, 5 & 6 night prices - thank you.
HOT TUB & SAUNA facilities are shared between our 3 cottages. We operate a diary system - you just pop down the time you wish to use the facilities and this ensures your private use.
HEATING – is included. For the coal stoves – the first coal scuttle and firelighters are provided free. Refills will be subjected to a charge of £4.50 per large scuttle.
TWO WEEK HOLIDAYS - For guests who wish to book a two-week or more holiday in Barn Owl Cottage a £100.00 cleaning/breakage deposit will be required on arrival. This charge will not apply to our regular/previous guests.
PETS - it is unfortunately not possible for us to have your dogs inside our Cottages. However we are more than happy to have 1 dog by arrangement to stay in our kennel. Our kennel has an indoor sleeping section plus a good sized outdoor run and is close to all Cottages. Of course your dog can be with you in the gardens and grounds, provided he/she is leashed. Charges are £20.00 per dog and should heating be required within the kennel, an additional charge will be made - depending on usage.
DURING PEAK TIMES - we try to keep to a Saturday changeover.
