About Mrs Julie Smales
We are Simon and Julie Smales and we live in the old farmhouse with our two teenage daughters, Ellie and Christie. We have been successfully letting our barn as a self catering holiday property for over ten years and have a number of loyal customers who come back to stay year after year. Whilst we are on hand should you need us, the barn is quite private as it is separated from us by a large shrubbery, the old stable and piggery which are now used as a garage and table tennis room.
Simon is originally from New Zealand and I was brought up in London, although my mum is a Padstonian and my grandparents farmed a nearby farm, so even before we moved here I had strong ties with this beautiful part of the world and spent a lot of time here. In the end we decided to move here permanently in 2002. Simon decided that if he couldn't live in New Zealand, Cornwall was the next best place to be. We have restored the farmhouse and renovated the barn which was originally converted in 1993 by our predecessors. In 2013 a lovely new shaker style kitchen and new windows have been fitted, part of our rolling programme of updates and reinvestment. Having travelled extensively we have shamelessly replicated the good things we have come across in properties we have stayed in. As you can hopefully tell, we are passionate about providing somewhere that our customers will love, enjoy and return to.
Mrs Julie Smales purchased this barn in 2002
Why Mrs Julie Smales chose Padstow
Its a lovely quiet south facing rural spot, yet is near Padstow and our seven beautiful sandy beaches are all within 10 minutes drive. It's also great for accessing the rest of Cornwall. All the rooms are large, you have plenty of space, and the heated conservatory with comfy sofas, means that you have a third reception room, so if someone wants to watch the TV, there is somewhere else where you can just read a book in comfort. The kitchen is so big there's even a sofa in there.
What makes this barn unique
We get great feedback about how comfy, homely and well equipped the barn is. The kitchen has all the little extras you need to cook anything from a roast to a stir fry. And if the weather isn't quite as sunny and dry as you would like it to be there are plenty of DVDs, books and games and table tennis to keep you entertained. We also provide a few body boards, and have a small selection of wet suits which our guests are welcome to use, along with buckets and spades, and fishing nets. We really do try and think of all the little extras you may need. There's even a coolie bag, flasks and picnic plates for you to borrow If you want any tips on where the best beaches are and where the secret spots are that only the locals know about, well they are all in our extensive Welcome Book.
