Why John and Yvonne Cawson chose Marhamchurch

We saw these barns in 2003 and fell for the location, views and potential to create a holiday home with character and comfort.

What makes this barn unique

A cluster of five cottages converted from original farm buildings, all have their own character decorated in similar style with a French influence and individual decorative pieces.The cottages each have their own private gardens with a huge paddock on site ideal for games or a wedding marquee, only a few minutes drive from both the coastline at Widemouth Bay and Bude, a bustling small town with plenty of great shops and places to eat.We fell in love with Helscott Barns when they were just dilapidated farm buildings with amazing views down to the sea yet tucked away from all the facilities and within easy reach of beaches, tourist attractions and interesting places to visit.We spent two years converting them to a high standard so they have all mod cons but retain their character with high ceilings and beams, as they are all together they provide the ideal place to be with others yet in your own private space.The Barns were originally a dairy farm with milking parlours, waiting yards, threshing barn and a Granary to store the feed and now range in size from two bedrooms sleeping 2/4 and three bedrooms for 2/6 with Rose Barn having two extra beds tucked away in the living room converted from an original, and rare, vaulted round house.We live in the farmhouse just beside the barns so are on hand if you need us but out of your way, happy to help but mindful of your privacy and are proud of our reputation for good customer service.
