Beautiful, rural property - great place to chill, explore, relax and enjoy - Colan Barton



Updated: 17-Oct-2016
Farmhouse near Newquay, South West Cornwall, England, UK - Gorgeous Rural Properties With Space For 2 - 19 Guests

This stunning property is in a completely rural setting and yet only 5 minutes from the atlantic coast, newquay and the main road through cornwall. A wonderful location to chill, explore, swim, enjoy.

Built in the 17th century, this beautiful property is set back from a small country lane and lands you into a cornish rural tranquility that you'll struggle to leave!!

The main house has 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, huge farmhouse kitchens with AGA, 2 loungers, utility room. It can sleep up to 11 people. With the main house you also get private access to our gorgeous swimming pool (unheated), summer house and large swathe of gardens, meadows and even your own small piece of woodland!!

Part of the same old building, but a separate property unit is Little Barton, a beautifully converted 2 bedroom cottage with kitchen, living room, bathroom. For larger groups of 11+, we reintegrate both the main house and side cottage.

Our studio cottages were renovated in 2005 and provide cute, cosy and utterly peaceful spaces for people to come and relax. They have private access via the rear of the main property.

PLEASE NOTE : the smaller properties do not have wifi. 4G does work but it's not ideal if you need or rely on wifi. it's good to turn off the internet for a few days ...

Compact but efficient use of space, living/sleeping area is combined (big double bed can be folded away) but then separate kitchen, bathroom (with huge bath)

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lots of comments on our website. Colan Barton on Trip Advisor. Some comments below;

"Perfect for family reunions and group gatherings - we would go back again in a flash"

"Colan Barton is an absolute gem and if you are thinking of booking it please do not hesitate. The acres of land are wonderful for children (and adults) and everything was spotlessly clean. We aged from 8 weeks to 60s and everyone fell in love with it."

"We have just spent a week at Little Barton, it has everything you could wish for, very clean, in a beautiful spot away from all the hustle and bustle of life"

From the Owner

When we bought Colan Barton it was derelict and unloved. We've since spent 20+ years renovating and upgrading it to the gorgeous property it is today. We think it's a wonderful spot and most of our guests agree. Spacious, idyllic and utterly tranquil. It's also a great location for exploring Cornwall - just 3 miles from the sensational atlantic coastline and close to the main road through Cornwall and easy access to most attractions.
