The Folly

In it’s own unique spot within Hele Barton Estate is our newest addition, The Folly.

The cottage is in a stunning setting and is totally surrounded by farmland with no neighbours and exceptional views. 1/3 acre private garden, firepit and hot tub, all only a few miles from the coast.  The Folly is a quirky farm cottage with inglenook fireplace and wood burner. Beautiful character features like beams and stained glass windows.

As this is a character property, the ceilings in the living room, kitchen, family bathroom and some doorways are lower than modern standards but the views from outside are limitless!

Ground Floor
Well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine, fridge-freezer, induction hob, oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and Tassimo coffee machine. Plenty of pots, pans and cooking utensils. Sabatier knives. Quality glassware, crockery and cutlery. Rechargeable Bluetooth speaker to play your own cooking playlist.
We supply cleaning & washing up products and equipment for your stay, including ecover dishwasher tablets, tea towels and hand wash. There is also an iron and ironing board, clothes airer, vacuum cleaner and a clothes line outdoors.

Living Room
Perfect for cosy evenings in. 2 button-back leather sofas with plenty of cushions. TV with Amazon firestick to stream using our super fast broadband (guest’s own streaming account login required). Clearview log burner within an amazing granite inglenook fireplace (unlimited logs, kindling etc provided).

Dining room
Beautiful light room with solid wood table and chairs.

Shower room
Power shower, WC and sink.

First Floor

Main bedroom
Solid wood Superking bed with Emma Mattress. Half wardrobe with drawers and dressing table. Decorated to a high standard with artisanal lampshade and pictures.

2nd Bedroom
Beautiful King sized bed with Emma Mattress, chest of drawers.

3rd Bedroom
Cheerfully decorated room with single bed and chest of drawers.

Family Bathroom
Quirky eaves bathroom with WC, sink and bath. Shaving socket and light. Hand soap, ‘Who gives a Crap’ toilet roll, Bathsheets and Handtowels provided.

The Outside Space is the main event here!  The Folly’s unique position offers panoramic views over the grassy valleys and woodlands, right to the sea.  The Hot Tub is perfectly positioned to unwind and watch the sun set over the Atlantic, or gather round the stylish concrete firebowl on chilly nights to tell stories and toast marshmallows.  On clear nights the garden is fantastic for stargazing.

There is parking for up to 3 cars within the gated garden, plus an EV charger point (free of charge).  The 1/3 acre plot is beautifully planted in a cottage garden style, with rambling roses, flowering shrubs and lawned areas.
There are several seating areas- a large wooden picnic table and benches, a lovely bistro set (perfect for your morning cuppa) and a sofa and chairs in the summerhouse. There are also 4 ‘big bertha’ outdoor beanbags for sunbathing or reading.  We also supply a Weber Charcoal BBQ- local charcoal and our fantastic grass-fed beef can be purchased from our little farm shop at the main farmyard!

The location makes this property truly unique and is the perfect place to escape from the rest of the world.  There is an abundance of wildlife including deer, foxes and birds of prey seen regularly in the surrounding fields.  It’s a proper ‘escape to the country’ (but we still have a great internet connection).  Although this property is tucked away on the farm, it’s only a short drive to the sandy, dog-friendly beach at Black Rock, Widemouth Bay.  There are a number of pubs within a 10 minute drive and it’s you can get to the coastal towns of Bude, Boscastle, Port Isaac and Crackington Haven easily by car.  The Southwest Coast Path is only a few miles away and we are close to Bodmin Moor so there’s unlimited walking possibilities – we recommend that guests check out iWalk Cornwall for a fantastic selection of circular walks- we provide an OS map of the local area too.

Unlike the other cottages we have Thursday changeover (Saturday- Saturday in School Summer holidays). We also offer short breaks – Please see the calendar for available arrival days.

Up to 4 well behaved adult dogs are welcome (must not be allowed upstairs in property or left alone in property).  We have a field available for your exclusive do-walking use during your stay and there are loads of public footpaths in the surrounding areas for you to explore- you can even walk right to Millook beach through the stunning Millook valley woods if you are a keen walker.

Please note that we completely change the water in the hot tub between every set of guests, so it may not be fully up to temperature on the day of your arrival. One of our staff will attend the property daily to check the water parameters for your safety. Children must be supervised at all times – under 5’s must not be permitted in the hot tub.  Please see hot tub safety guidelines for further information.

“Myself and my extended family have just returned from a fabulous week at Hele Barton Farm. We rented all but one of the cottages between us and we all enjoyed our stay. I stayed in Harvest Barn and have to say it is the best accommodation I have stayed in in the UK. The fixtures and fittings were all to a very high standard with the kitchen having dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer plus a fantastic range type cooker and American style fridge freezer with cold water and ice dispenser. All of the bathrooms (all bedrooms ensuite) were beautiful with fantastic powerful showers. Much needed after a hard day on the beach. The surroundings were stunning and we were also blessed with terrific weather. The owners greeted us upon arrival with scones, jam and cream, a lovely gesture and most welcome after our long journey from Shropshire/Nottingham.”


“We had travelled from Australia to spend quality time with our family, Harvest Barn was simply superb!!!, 4 double bedrooms, all ensuite, just perfect. Harvest Barn was immaculately clean, beautifully furnished, with every amenity you could possibly want or need. Fantastic kitchen and lounge space/family area. There were 8 adults in our group and at no time did we feel on top of one another.
We were greeted with home made scones/jam and clotted cream made by “Grandma”
Definitely 5 star accommodation in every way, the British members of our family have already rebooked”
