Explore 18 Acres of Grounds
Hole Barn is on Hole Farm, which now has 18 acres. We have planted many trees and native hedges, dug ponds and made a large vegetable garden. There are bees in the orchard. Residents are welcome to explore the farm and its ancient bluebell wood next to a stream which runs cold and clear.
One of our visitors said: "I could spend hours watching the cats, the cows and the buzzards." Our nearest neighbour is about 300 metres away and the silence is broken by birdsong – visitors include greater spotted woodpeckers who can be heard tapping away, while the buzzards mewle overhead.
At Hole Barn, you can discover Wild Cornwall right on your doorstep.
The barn has had a varied history, including a state of the art piggery, converted by the press baron Lord Beaverbrook who owned Hole Farm and several other properties in the area in the early 1950s. It was converted to a holiday cottage in 2007 and is on two levels.
The barn now has two comfortable double bedrooms downstairs – one with kingsize bed and one with two 3ft single beds. The front door opens into an open floor living area with French doors to a private garden at the back, and views to fields at the front. The bathroom, between the bedrooms, has a shower over the bath.
The barn has oil central heating and free wood for a wood burning stove. Electricity comes from solar panels. There is an electric cooker, fridge with a freezer compartment, dishwasher, and a washer-drier. A freezer can be accessed nearby. Bed linen and towels are supplied. The internet is available as well as a 40in television, lots of DVDS, books and music. Parking is by the
The barn is a mile and a half from the award-winning moorland village of St Neot Cornwall. The local shop is well stocked, and visitors are welcome to the village institute, the locals’ social club and bar.
