Romantic luxury boltholes don't come any cosier than the delightful Jack Sparrow Barn. The rustic characterful up-cycled interiors, oak wall panelling and clever use of raw materials will provide inspiration for design aficionados. Perfectly placed for exploring the foodie haunts and surfing beaches of North Cornwall, this is the ideal self-catering hideaway cottage for that much needed break away from the hubbub of daily life.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

The crisp linens, sumptuous duvet and marshmallow-soft pillows in the double en suite bedroom promise an uninterrupted night's sleep, and may make getting up in the morning quite a challenge (all the more reason for lazy breakfasts in bed)! There is a deep clawfoot bath tub in the bedroom itself, whilst there is also an en suite shower room with walk in shower large enough for two...


An enclosed suntrap garden wraps around Jack Sparrow Barn and boasts extensive views across the rolling countryside towards the sea- Trevose Head lighthouse can be spotted glinting in the distance on a clear day. In addition to the garden, dogs will love to bound around Pepper Meadow, a two-acre field behind the house. Guests will truly enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the traditional Cornish hamlet where this self-catering barn is situated, with some of North Cornwall's finest beaches just a short drive away offering a beachy smorgasbord with 'seven bays for seven days' from which to choose! 

For Relaxation

Lovebirds can look forward to skies ablaze with sunsets and long sunny beach days in summertime, whilst winter is the season for wrapping up and enjoying a bracing stomp - you'll find yourself toes-in-sand just a half-hour walk from the cottage. After a day's adventures batten down the hatches and snuggle up by the wood burner with a glass of hearty red...


There is parking for up to two cars. Jack Sparrow Barn is well-equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, electric hob and oven, as well as a washing machine and tumble dryer tucked away in the beach hut in the garden.



Style: Little Jack Sparrow Barn offers a hearty Cornish welcome to all who visit. Quirky mismatching, patchwork fabrics and hand-crafted furniture combine to create a delightful barn conversion on the north Cornish coast.

Our Take

Property Owner Andrew says

There is nothing more pleasurable than watching the sun dip beneath the horizon with the sound of the sea providing the backdrop, and watching the lighthouse flash in the distance as darkness draws in to mark the end of a perfect Cornish day.

The cosy country-style kitchen and sociable open-plan sitting room/dining space ensures that rustling up a romantic supper for two is always a pleasure. Enjoy informal breakfasts with steaming hot coffee and fresh pastries out on the patio in summer months, whilst candlelit dinners can be enjoyed inside come rain or shine.

In-House Cuisine

If you’d rather spend your self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost).  

Eating Out

There are a selection of friendly pubs and restaurants nearby and beyond- The Traveller's Rest in Trevarrian being a favourite! Jamie Oliver's Fifteen restaurant is not far away at Watergate Bay, whilst also worth a visit are Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant or the Paul Ainsworth's Number Six in Padstow. The Park Cafe at nearby Mawgan Porth is great for an artisan breakfast.
