About the property


You know you are arriving somewhere extraordinary as you turn down the country lane and first glimpse the magnificent views across rolling countryside down to the sea! Superlatives are not enough to portray this magical barn conversion sat within utterly idyllic private gardens. Songbirds is most definitely a place to say goodbye to the hectic world and escape in total privacy surrounded by an oasis of nature. Painstakingly restored this barn is sat within the grounds of a sixteenth century farmhouse and although off the beaten track every modern luxury has been thought of. Think hand built kitchens, luxury bathrooms, oversized sofas and sumptuous beds.

Open up the doors from the large living spaces to the terraces and look out on your own little paradise where there is even a petanque pitch to while away the afternoons. We can't talk about Songbirds without mentioning the gorgeous beaches and coves stretching all along the breath-taking coastline in this stunning part of Cornwall so take your pick. If feeling energetic leave the car behind and take a winding stroll straight from your doorstep through woodlands and fields and end up at Millook Haven a firm favourite with the local surfers. Songbirds complete with a firepit, barbeque and Pizza oven is the perfect place to unwind after a day on the beach cooking up a feast as the sun comes down on this little piece of heaven. The owners have even created a vegetable plot for guests where you are free to take your pick in season. At the bottom of the garden a peaceful spot to enjoy your morning coffee is the decked terrace overlooking the large pond where you can take in the morning chorus. Don't forget your camera and binoculars either as Songbird is a real haven for wildlife lovers with red deer, otters and stoats as well as numerous bird species regularly visiting the area.

About Rory Sacree

My name is Rory and I have grown up in and around Bude. I'm a keen surfer and love being outdoors. I also enjoy a little bit of travelling and surfing different places. I work as a Lifeguard on the local beaches in the summer months and in the winter I work in child care.

Rory Sacree purchased this barn in 2014

Why Rory Sacree chose Poundstock

I bought this barn as a complete ruin and spent 3 years alongside some builders renovating the building and landscaping the gardens. I know want to let others enjoy it for what it is and hopefully make a small successful business from it.

What makes this barn unique

The uniqueness of this building and its location is what attracted me to it in the first place. The views out towards Bude and glimpses of the ocean and Lundy island in the distance make it all that more special, not to mention the array of wildlife around the local area.

Songbirds is located in a very rural area of North Cornwall and is nestled within a small wooden valley perfect for wildlife spotting or just relaxing in the tranquility. It is also just a stones throw away from the rugged north Cornish coastline and beautiful beaches. There are so many outdoor options from swimming or surfing in the ocean to hiking the coast path. Bude town center is less the 15 minutes drive away if you fancy eating out in one of many lovely restaurants or if you just fancy an afternoon shopping.
