Barton Hurdle is a 2 bedroom cottage sitting in a beautiful wooded valley on the North Devon /Cornwall border. Just a 10 minute stroll to a breath-taking beach. Perfect for couples and families who like stargazing and the sea.

The space

Our wood-lined cosy cottage is a magical place to escape to - set in a beautiful woodland garden, with a stream passing through and a local family of buzzards to keep you company. It's a short walk (10mins) from a stunning beach, and the South West Coast Path.

The cottage has large living/dining room kitted out with some great holiday reads, paintings and art works by local artists and even our Gran's old piano. Our newly installed kitchen has been made by a local carpenter and includes a washing machine, fridge/freezer and electric cooker.

The bathroom has just been re-tiled and a new shower fitted. We have two bedrooms - one with a double bed and one with twin beds. We have electric heaters in the living room, kitchen and bedrooms. There is a new wood burner in the living/dining area. Outside there is a large garden to explore but because there is a stream running through the garden children must be supervised. We've recently added two stone outdoor seating areas and a firepit.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the whole of the cottage and the garden.

Interaction with guests

We live just down the road in Bude, so we can pop by and say hello if you'd like us to. Otherwise we leave a key for you to use and some tea, coffee and biscuits to keep you going when you first arrive.

Other things to note

We offer a lovely opportunity for a digital detox, but we can give you the wifi password if that feels a little too scary. We dont have a TV as the TV signal doesn't quite reach us down in the valley.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Very peaceful in a great location - such a pleasure to just leave the car and go exploring on foot. Beach down the road one way, a great pub 15 mins in the other direction - bring a torch if walking up in the dark though! We will definitely return, highly recommended.

This is an amazing little house if you wish to step back in time and step off the world. Has everything you could possibly need with huge amounts of charm and character as well. Walking distance from the beach and a great pub a real escape at any time of year we loved it

We absolutely loved the place. The setting is beautiful - we loved the stream and the walk to the beach and followed Rachel's advice on a couple of great trips to Bude and Hartland Quay.

A little green gem. Beautiful setting set a short walk back from stunning coastline. A peaceful, cosy retreat.

A charming typical early 20th century tin building. Very particular and distinctive. In a very quiet and peaceful setting. Unique. Only the sound of the gurgling stream to disturb you. The beach and waterfall are one of the most beautiful places we have seen. The house is well equipped with games, guides and maps. Comfy beds and a great shower. A great place for walkers and dogs.

We had a lovely week. The weather was stormy but we felt cosy and warm in the cottage and had all we needed so managed to relax too. Would definitely visit again.

We moved to Cornwall as an experiment and realised that living by the sea *is* all it's cracked up to be. I grew up in the North East but the South West, and a boy from Devon, stole my heart. We are parents to two very special boys and we can all usually be found in or next to the sea.
