About Vicky Jones

We are the Jones Family,my name is Vicky, my husband is Jason we have two boys Lewis and Max, and a dog called Ozzy. We have lived in this area all our lives. We love it here as it is quiet and secluded a perfect way of life for our family. With the coastline and lovely sandy beaches with its surf only five minutes away which the boys really enjoy.

Our aim is to provide a relaxing and comfortable stay, and to treat our guests like we would like to be treated on holiday.

Vicky Jones purchased this barn in 2010

Why Vicky Jones chose Stratton

We have owned this property for five years, we fell in love with it the first time we viewed it especially for its location, seclusion and panoramic views. Situated on the edge of the quiet historic village of Stratton just off the A39 and being only five minutes from Bude, with all the amenities, especially the beaches. We have recently converted the old derelict barn to a very high standard self contained holiday cottage, with its own enclosed garden, and tranquil surroundings. Perfect base for exploring Devon and Cornwall.

What makes this barn unique

Roof Tops is in a perfect location for exploring all parts of the North Cornwall coastline and beyond. For its stunning coastal walks with breath taking scenery, secluded beaches and thriving fishing villages.

Our property offers enclosed garden with patio area for BBQ, storage for surf boards and bikes. Excellent local pubs serving good food just a stroll away.Take the stress out of your holiday and leave your car at Roof Tops and take a five minute walk to catch the bus to Bude and surrounding villages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderful holiday and fantastic place to stay! The cottage was even better than the photo's which looked lovely! The hosts were great, always on hand if we needed anything. We hope to return again in the future! The area is fab for exploring Devon and Cornwall. We recommend eating at The Tree Inn in Stratton and Herbasca in Bude. Thanks so much, hope to see you again some day. Alex, Mat & Christian, Sep 2013

PERFECT holiday. Well thought out beautifully presented barn conversion. Superb, quiet location, ideal for exploring the area. Bude beaches superb for the little ones, who love it so much here (what they call the new house) that they don't want to leave! Thank you to the owners for being such lovely hosts. In the background, but there if we needed you! looking forward to coming again! Ernest Louise & family, Aug 2013

Many thanks to our hosts for making us so welcome in this beautiful barn conversion, well equipped and to a five star standard. Ann, Mike Norma & Bill, Oct 2013

Amazing barn conversion in an ideal location for exploring north Cornwall.

Vicky has made this a lovely home from home. The barn is furnished to a very high standard throughout with lovely furnishings, bed linen and decor. The two ensuites are a bonus and again done to a very high standard.

The barn is situated in the village of Stratton just outside of Bude. It had two pubs and a shop walkable from the barn.

We would definitely stay again!

Great winter break

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for half term week. The house was perfect for us and our daughter. The gas burner made it really cosy and the whole house is well planned and maintained. It is in a great location, very quiet and only a few minutes from Bude and the coastal road. We particularly enjoyed watching the wildlife from the window. Barn owls, buzzards and many other birds, We were greeted by Vicky on arrival and she left us a delicious cream tea. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful location and cosy, high quality accommodation.

We had a great time here. It was warm and comfortable with everything we needed throughout the house including the kitchen. Vicky and Jason made us very welcome and Vicky had put some lovely Christmas decorations up. The house was great for our needs and we had a lovely break. We have already recommended it to friends. Thank you recommend it

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Wow what a lovely barn conversion. Everything we could have wished for. Immaculately clean (and I'm very fussy!), beautifully decorated and very comfy, a real find. Owners live on site, so handy if there's a problem but not intrusive. Crean teas and crene eggs on arrival much appreciated.

Wouldn't hestitate to recommend.

Thank you Vicky and Jason
