This beautifully converted barn surrounded by quiet countryside and rural vistas, rests in architectural elegance just a few minutes’ drive from Padstow. Exuding an away-from-it-all ambience yet within easy reach of the area’s best loved beaches and villages, Mowhay Barn is perfectly suited to families and groups of friends looking for an exceptional escape to one of Cornwall’s most sought after coastal locations. Rustic charm and elegant modernism seamlessly combine for a warm and inviting atmosphere throughout the interior, with features like exposed natural stonework and vaulted beams sitting alongside tastefully stylish furnishings and sumptuous décor.

Home to several luxurious living spaces, there is ample space to unwind in with the living room and den kept toasty by individual log burning stoves. A large contemporary farmhouse kitchen with dining table and seating makes the perfect place to prepare and share home cooked meals, while the glass-encased sun room with table and seating tempts sociable evenings of conversation or a board game or two. Three gorgeous double bedrooms, each with their own unique aspect of the landscape, mean guests can look forward to a deep and comfortable nights’ sleep followed by long and lazy morning lie-ins while the master bedroom with its Juliet balcony and en suite with stand alone bath tub creates a lavish sanctuary to retreat to after a days spent down on the beach or exploring the surrounding countryside.

Designed with entertaining in mind, the property’s outdoor space sprawls across four acre, with manicured lawns offering tons of space for children (and adults) to run free. Framed by wild flower beds and dotted with mature trees, the grounds offer shady spots to picnic under and a large patio area to enjoy alfresco dining. Pop open a bottle of bubbly and watch the sun set together, or steal yourself away to the magical summerhouse that nestles quietly at the far end of the estate for an hour of recluse, with spectacular views that stretch all the way to the Atlantic it's just one of the terrific features that make this home so special.

*This property now offers a newly installed six seater hot tub.

Please note that if you do not require the hot tub for your stay, you can save £100. Please enter NOHOTTUBMB24 for a 2024 arrival date during the booking process

September Family break

We found Mowhay Barn a delight to enjoy a family holiday. Quality throughout, most comfortable rooms & everything you could need whilst there. Close proximity to great Cornish locations & dinning opportunities near by! Only two negatives for us, the barn is very close to a busy road so the constant traffic noise both in the garden & in the bedrooms took some getting use to! Dissapointing not to receive a welcome pack!

Philip, 23 Sep 2023

Hi Philip, Thank you for leaving a review on your recent stay with us. We are so delighted to hear the property had everything you could need and it was quality throughout! How lovely you got to explore the nearby locations. We do hope to welcome you to stay with Luxury Coastal again in the future. Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team

we had a wonderful break at Mowhay Barn

This was our second stay at Mowhay Barn and we had a glorious stay with lovely warm weather The house is so comfortable and with everything you need and the spacious grounds which are kept very tidy gives lots of space for the grandchildren to play in. we did experience a new colony of honey bees arriving at the house too. We informed the company and it was dealt with quickly-apparently due to Cornwall not cutting back the grass/flower sides/borders of the roads and fields-looked very pretty thanks you

Elizabeth, 17 Jun 2023

Hi Elizabeth, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We are so delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at Mowhay Barn. What a unique experience with the honey bees, thank you for understanding and calling us to sort it out. We hope to see you again in the future! Best Wishes, Luxury Coastal.
