The ultimate luxury Cornwall holiday home by the sea.

Barford Beach House

Wanson Mouth Poundstock Near Bude EX23 0DF 01566 770 880

We say

Barford Beach House is a superbly refurbished property with an expansive sea view that is part of the Tregulland & Co portfolio of Ken and Illona Aylmer's family-owned luxury Cornish holiday properties. The Beach House is but a short walk from Widemouth Bay, which offers fantastic conditions to learn surfing or body-boarding, which is why many of the local surf schools are based there.  The building sleeps up to sixteen guests in six ensuite bedrooms with views of breaking surf and access to a secluded beach. With so much glass the house is full of light, and a balcony runs across the entire first floor so the sea views are enjoyed to the fullest. A short walk from Widemouth Bay, with access to pubs and cafés as well as miles of beautiful sandy beaches, surf and clifftop walks, the house overlooks the sea 150m from a private beach at Wanson Mouth. 

A stay at Barford is for those who like a splash of fun with their interior design – no twee painted driftwood beach signs here, just an eclectic mix of smoked oak flooring, polished brass and silver bateau baths, a 10 foot long 18th century Persian oak dining table, Moroccan bed throws and vibrant art, all creating a “Rough-luxe” feel. As well as a dramatic copper clad kitchen/dining/sitting room, an outdoor wood fired hot tub and indoor spa/sauna area, the house has possibly the largest master suite we’ve ever seen, which comes with decadent touches such as its own cocktail bar, private terrace and huge brass bath.  There’s even an abandoned fishing boat installed in the grounds of the house. There is also an all-important cinema and playroom for younger guests, well kitted out with DVDs, games and books. For adults there is ‘The Bunker’, a secret underground retreat with an awesome sound and lighting system, pool table, retro arcade-games and a classic pinball machine, perfect for anyone with enough energy left for late night parties! In addition, a beautifully restored vintage Airstream motorhome is also now available to be hired at Barford as an extra bedroom with an ingenious plumbed-in ensuite shower.In short, what are you waiting for? This is the ultimate luxury Cornwall holiday home by the sea.
