A delightful barn conversion with traditional features, just a short drive from the sandy beaches of Bude.

This split-level barn conversion, situated just 8 miles from the seaside town of Bude, is perfect for couples that want to bring their furry friend with them to enjoy some of the fabulous dog-friendly beaches locally, like Sandymouth Bay beach (6 miles) that has no dog restrictions all year. The open-plan living space gives you and your hound plenty of room to relax in after a long day walking. Stunning original features like exposed beams and slate flooring make this property a calming countryside retreat that everyone will enjoy.

Set within a tranquil spot surrounded by farm animals, the cottage is cosy and comfortable with beautiful views from the enclosed patio, making it the ideal place for your canine to stretch their legs. French doors flood the lounge/diner with light during the day and if you need peace and quiet in the evening, the sofas invite you to sink into them with Fido curled up by your feet. When it’s time for bed, retire up the small set of stairs to the peaceful bedroom and fall into a deep slumber.

You and your canine companion are in an ideal place for an active walking holiday. The Tamar Lakes are a 1.5-mile drive away and are a haven for birds and other wildlife, while Dunsdon National Nature Reserve (3 miles) preserves Devon’s Culm grasslands and offers a Wild Walk with a 4-mile exploration of the wider landscape. If it’s sands you want, the 2-mile stretch at Widemouth Bay (11 miles) welcomes dogs all year round. If you don’t want to cook at home there’s no need to, since the local pub, 2.5 miles away, welcomes your furry friend.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The place was lovely as was the owners. Great value for money and the people in the London inn pub in the village made us feel so welcome including our dog Zeus. Only negative point is that I had to use the car to walk my dog as the country lanes have no paths , but thats Cornwall, and not the owners fault . O

Arriving at Ashgrove Barn for a much needed rest after the run up to Christmas in our business we were greeted by the lovely George and Irene, who couldn't have been more charming and helpful. Ashgrove Barn itself is perfect placed for visiting local attractions, and it's peaceful setting allowed us to enjoy our stay in both comfort and privacy.
