Hello and welcome to the 3rd post in my series on finding the perfect UK holiday home. I’m super excited about this one, as I’m actually heading down to Cornwall myself soon, and it’s one of my favourite UK holiday destinations. If you can stomach the 9 hour drive there, I’d highly recommend it. Seriously though, it’s a beautiful spot that feels so different to the rest of the UK. It’s almost magical. I always feel calm and relaxed when I visit, so I can’t wait for our trip in a few weeks.
Anyway, let’s crack on with showing you round my top pick holiday home.
This month’s featured property is Peacehay Barn in Padstow from Cornish Horizons.
This time I’ve chosen a property suitable for a large family, group of friends or that special occasion. Perhaps you’re celebrating a big family member’s birthday, or college friends’ reunion or just want to get all the gang together for one memorable trip. If so, this is exactly the type of place you need.
Padstow is situated on the north coast of Cornwall, and is arguably one of the best Cornish destinations there is. Harbour, fishing, beaches, watersports and great food including Rick Stein, plus lots to see and do. Peacehay Barn is located a few miles away overlooking Trevibban Mill vineyard, with wine tasting on offer if you fancy a tipple. The location is spot on for a getaway, with amenities and the town close by. Just perfect.
Ok so this is what you need to know about this property. It’s huge! Sleeping 12 over 6 bedrooms, some with their own private living area, multiple bathrooms and even a gym close by to keep you occupied, this is a boutique style residence that you will love. It’s brand new too, and the owners have created a well thought out space, with lots of features and touches that make a holiday home just perfect I think.
As I said, there are 6 bedrooms. Most are situated on the ground floor and include 3 King size beds, a double and set of twins perfect for the kids. Three of these rooms enjoy an en-suite bathroom/shower room, with a main shared bathroom on this floor too. It’s an upside down property (I do love these, they usually have amazing views!) so bedrooms and utilities are on the ground floor, whilst the main feature bedroom is upstairs along with the living area.
If you’re looking for a big property to share with a large group of people, the main thing it needs is a fantastic living space. It needs a wow factor. This is where you’re going to be spending a lot of time, eating and socialising, and making great memories with loved ones, so it has to be really special. Peacehay Barn ticks all these boxes.
The open plan living, dining and kitchen area of this house has to be the main feature. It’s stunning. Light, airy and contemporary in style, it will appeal to all tastes and provide enough space for everyone to feel relaxed.
The dining area is stylish and comfortable with a fabulous view over the fields.
Statement lighting, colourful artwork and a creative dining setup give this property real style appeal.
Look at the beautiful open plan kitchen. Ideal for joint cooking!
There’s plenty of space for moving around, and even two dishwashers for when it comes to cleaning up. I also spy some double doors at the back there, probably out onto one of the balconies to make the most of the view.
I mentioned at the beginning of this post that the property is set in lovely, open grounds so enjoys stunning countryside views. There are 3 balconies on the first floor that take full advantage of this. There’s also two patio areas with garden furniture and a barbecue for outdoor entertaining, and then practical stuff like parking for 4 cars.
Prices range from £2500-£4300 which might seem like a lot but remember this is a big property that sleeps 12. I always thing that you need to spend around £300-£400 per head in peak season for a luxury holiday home so this is spot on.
