Quirky cottage in Cornwall: A romantic bolthole for two, nestled in the Cornish countryside and close to the soft sandy shores of St Agnes. An idyllic retreat for the lovers of romance.
For those who daydream about a romantic break away to a bouji bolthole for two, Bower Barn is the perfect fit. This heavenly hideaway was made for long lazy, romantic weekends in the countryside. The added bonus of this hidden haven is that it's also close to Cornwall's beautiful coastline.
Open the front door and you'll be blown away by this perfectly petit love nest. Bower Barn offers reverse level living, with a sumptuous open plan space upstairs and a lovely double bedroom downstairs. The pretty living space is a botanist's dream. With fresh interiors and plants used to decorate the light and airy space, this hideaway is a breath of fresh air. On a cool winters day after returning from a salt kissed beach walk, you can retreat to your hideaway and light up the wood-burner. Get cosy on the snug sofa, set up a board game, prep your cheese board and batten down the hatches. A romantic retreat for two with so much elegant charm.
The kitchen is a sleek layout. Small in size, but with everything you could possibly desire to whip up an intimate dinner for two. It's entirely your choice if you choose to sit around the sweet little dining table or take dinner outside al fresco style to your private patio and garden area.
The bedroom provides the perfect night sleep. With a comfy double bed and luxurious linens this is the idyllic spot for a long lazy lie in. The en suite shower room has a spacious shower - just perfect for those wake-me-up mornings or for refreshing after a day of sunbathing at the beach.
Outside you'll find your very own suntrap. The outdoor space will transport you to a Mediterranean bliss. Complete with a table and chairs and a hammock to unwind in, we wouldn't blame you if all you wanted to do during your stay was snoozing in between the trees. The lawn gives extra space and there are lovely twinkly solar lights which add to the romantic ambience in the evening.
Bower Barn is just perfect for those seeking a hideaway, with a delightful romantic elegance.
Out and About
Located on Goonown Lane, Bower Barn sits down a charming and historic part of St Agnes (also loved by local walkers). The barn gets its name from its secluded position, as it's protected by the bower of three large sycamore trees. Don't forget your walking boots, as you have lots of lovely walks straight from the front door (great for your four-legged friends). The beach is about a 20 minute walk away with easy access to the South West Coast Path.
St Agnes has lots of great places to eat such as Schooners, Taste, Driftwood and The Taphouse. You can also pick up lots of goodies at the various delis, butcher, a bakery and lots of other independent shops. If you're feeling energetic and like a game of tennis, St Agnes Tennis Club, is just down the lane, and they have a very friendly 'pay and play' arrangement at £2.50 per person for an hour of fun.
The beaches on the north coast up towards Newquay are great if you enjoy surfing. Crantock is only a short drive away and is a picture-perfect village with an amazing beach to be explored. If you do visit be sure to check out Jam Jar Jess and sample the pizza menu. This enchanting courtyard will transport you to the streets of Italy.
