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.

Completely refurbished for summer 2020, The Folly is a quirky farm cottage with inglenook fireplace and wood burner. Beautiful character features like beams and stained glass windows.

The cottage has 4 lovely bedrooms- a single on the ground floor and a master with superking, king and a single on the first floor.

There is also a family bathroom on the first floor and on the ground floor is a toilet and shower (very handy for after the hot tub).

Downstairs, there is a fully-equipped kitchen with window seat and  granite worktop with adjoining dining room for 6.

The large living room has a fantastic inglenook fireplace with wood-burner and chesterfield leather sofas, plus a smart TV.

Outside the cottage we have 1/3 acre mature enclosed garden offering fantastic views across the countryside to the sea.  Our hot tub is situated to make the most of the gorgeous Atlantic sunsets, and once it’s dark you can light the feature concrete firebowl and sit out and enjoy the stars a bit longer.

Unlike the other cottages we have Thursday changeover. We also offer short breaks (minimum of 3 nights).  Please see the calendar for available arrival days.

Up to 4 well behaved dogs are welcome (must not be allowed upstairs in property or left alone in property). As this is a character property, the ceilings in the living room, kitchen and some doorways are lower than modern standards but the views from outside are limitless!

“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”
