Three unique architectural hideaways near Bude sleeping 21 with a hot tub for friends and family group stays
Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Venn Farm, Bude, sleeps 4 - 21 in 10 bedrooms.
Venn Farm is gloriously secluded, nestled between two nature reserves, but just a short hop from Bude and some of Cornwall’s best surf beaches. Since 2008 the owners have been lovingly restoring this beautiful farm to create the perfect hideaway for families and friends. Everything indoors is designed to combine comfort, character and simplicity. Outside, Venn's 3 acres has a small woodland area, grassy areas - perfect for football, and a wild gravel garden with prairie grasses. Guests are welcome to collect eggs from their friendly hens and use the large trampoline and table tennis table.
Venn Farm has three unique hideaways, designed for privacy which can be rented separately or together. There are generous spaces to get together and ample space to spread out.
The Farmhouse sleeps 8. The light filled 16thc Farmhouse has been lovingly converted over the last 15 years. A simple and modern timber frame extension was added which opens up the house to make the most of the Cornish sunsets with views down towards the Tamar river. Foodies can enjoy the Gozney pizza oven.
The Cob sleeps 9. Designed by award-winning architects Feilden Fowles, this converted barn has 4 bedrooms, a double height kitchen diner with bi-fold doors that lead onto the terrace. It also has a cedar clad hot tub.
The Red Barn sleeps 4. It has a sun-flooded open-plan living space upstairs overlooking a large tree bordered garden.
Feilden Fowles have won many awards for their sympathetic conversion of historic buildings and seemed like a natural choice to help renovate Venn Farm. They have designed something simple, cohesive and modern. The Cob’s clerestory window ensures that all rooms are light filled. The Farmhouse’s timber framed extension makes the most of the western sunsets and the views down towards the Tamar and provides a large and social space for cooking and entertaining.
The owners have a background in fashion and design so have loved restoring the Farm, whilst retaining many original features like the 16th century inglenook fireplace. Their interiors style is an eclectic mix of mid-century, vintage finds, bold graphics and souvenirs from their travels.
