A fantastic location near Daymer Bay

  • 5 of 5

Our family(2 adults and 3 teenage daughters) enjoyed a week in this large,comfortable, well-equipped family home just a few steps from beautiful Daymer Bay. Despite being winter the house was warmed by the AGA and electric heating which made it cosy to return to after our walks and daytrips to Rock,Padstow,Port Isaac, Tintagel and a wild and wet Land's End!

Stunning house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a glorious week in Bars House with friends. A party of 4 adults and 5 children had a truly memorable holiday. The facilities at the house were just perfect, the outside shower was brilliant for washing off sand after a day on the beach, and the boys just loved their bedroom in the attic! The kitchen is well equipped, and the barbecue in the garden was a wonderful touch, and well used due to the sunny weather we were lucky enough to have.

The owner was very friendly and approachable, and couldn't do enough to help us, even telephoning during our stay to check everything was OK!

A super house for a family holiday, within easy walking distance of the lovely beach. Fingers crossed we can come again one day soon.

We have just returned from another wonderful stay at Bars House and just wanted to say how much we appreciate the improvements. The kitchen and dining area are now open plan, beautifully decorated and have made it a light and spacious place to entertain. The aga makes it especially cosy. We were blessed with plentiful sunshine during our stay and although the wind was cold, the sunny sheltered garden meant that we were able to eat on the patio most days. We are always sad to leave this lovely house. Thank you for making it so special.

Fantastic and wonderful week in Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Bars house which is ideally located to explore all corners of Cornwall. The beautiful patio gave us many hours of lazing in the sunshine and the splendid new kitchen was probably our favorite place to hang out in the house. We even met the lovely owners and were given great tips about local pubs. The fact that you can walk to so many places from the house was an added bonus. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Bars house and can't wait to come back one day.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This property was well located and suited the needs of our party of nine, from baby to grandparents. The walk to the beach and back was easy for us all, even with a pushchair.

The owner has been friendly and helpful and answered every query promptly, even locating a missing shoe hidden carefully in the property by our granddaughter!

The property was very well equipped, plenty of crockery, cutlery and kitchen equipment. Plenty of storage space and the washing machine, dryer and dishwasher were excellent. The AGA too was welcome, we were able to prepare meals early in the day and keep warm until evening. We used the recommended Tesco online delivery for our arrival day, excellent idea!

Top floor bedroom and bathroom very good size and we were able to utilise this space as storage and airing space for the whole party.

We went to the local beach most days but also had days out in the car. Amazing beach and rock pools and loved the ferry service over to Padstow. Great location for families wanting a relaxing holiday.

Daymer Beach is literally just down the lane and in 1998 was described by The Sunday Times as one of the 6 best located beaches in the world! The Camel Estuary is the only true Atlantic Estuary in England and is protected as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Walk across the beach or golf course to Rock and catch the ferry to Padstow (dine at Rick Steins!) -you can sail, water ski or go deep sea fishing from Rock, windsurf at Daymer, surf at Polzeath, walk the fantastic coastal path.


Newquay Airport 20-25 miles.

Bodmin Parkway (railway)-1/2 hr away -4hrs to Paddington (London).


Polzeath 1.5 miles.

Rock 1.5 miles.

Wadebridge 7miles.

Truro 34 miles.

Further Details:

Excellent Tesco in Wadebridge (and will deliver).

Bank & services Wadebridge.

In the middle of the best coastline in Britain!
