Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Bodmin - Barn Owl Cottage

Welcome to Steppes Farm Holiday Cottages in Cornwall.

Imagine a holiday that is exciting, enthralling, relaxing and indulgent - allowing you all time to recharge. Think of a place which offers everyone memorable experiences, whatever the time of year.

Our self-catering holiday cottages are set in 20 acres of an area of outstanding natural beauty. The farmhouse and luxuriously furnished barn conversions nestle into the countryside, right on the edge of wild and romantic Bodmin Moor - just five miles from the breathtaking Cornish coast. You will find our lovely accommodation near the towns of Tintagel, Boscastle and Camelford.

Traditional Barn Owl Cottage has stunning views and luxuriously spacious accommodation. This character Cottage, with its very interesting upside-down arrangement, has gorgeous soft furnishings and offers a relaxing atmosphere with exposed beams. Barn Owl Cottage has its own spring water supply - excellent to drink and makes a delicious cup of tea !!

HOT TUB & SAUNA facilities are shared between our 3 cottages. We operate a diary system which is kept in our Information centre - you just pop down the time you wish to use the facilities and this ensures your private use. Please note that from the 29th October, 2016 to 1st April, 2017 (excluding Christmas and New Year bookings) there is a charge of £75.00 per week for unlimited use of the Spa facilities.

About Karen Briggs

My family & I moved here in 2007 to pursue our dream and we know that you will be as pleased with your stay here as we have always been :o))

Our cosy old farm nestles in the hillside, complete with its own natural spring water supply. We have a fantastic location between the stunning rugged coastline of North Cornwall and Bodmin Moor - an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Steppes Farm, in parts, dates back to medieval times. The main farmhouse was a lot smaller then, with a barn and a dairy behind it. These were merged with the farmhouse around the 1970s.

Karen Briggs purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Karen Briggs chose Cornwall

Steppes Farm has all the atmosphere and tradition you could ever hope for. With the added plus of hot tub and sauna :o))))

What makes this cottage unique

Such a peaceful, tranquil location - an ideal retreat from the outside world. With beautiful views from every angle, which alter with the changing seasons - bliss x

Wunderschöner Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt im Owl Cottage sehr genoßen. Die Lage der Farm ist traumhaft, etwas abseits, vollkommen ruhig und idyllisch. Auf dem Gelände begegen einem viele gesellige Tiere, das Cottage selbst ist liebevoll, gemütlich und mit allem Komfort eingerichtet.

Es ist ausgesprochen sauber und ordentlich. Auf dem Hof gibt es eine kleine Touristen-Information im Gartenhäuschen mit jeder Menge Tipps, Landkarten und Flyern.

Die Besitzer sind sehr warmherzig und freundlichen. Gerne beraten Sie Ihre Gäste hinsichtlich geplanter Ausflüge und Touren, halten einen kleinen Plausch oder versorgen Sie mit frischen Eiern. Das Gästebuch ist voll mit Einträgen begeisterter Kinder, die sich beim Ponyreiten in eines der schönen Pferde verliebt haben oder auf ein Wiedersehen mit dem verschmuster Hofkater hoffen.

Vom Cottage aus ist man in wegen Autominuten in Tintagel, mitten im Bodmin Moor oder an einem der atemberaubenden Strände Cornwalls.

Nach langen Tagestouren haben wir unsere Abende gerne vor dem Ofen oder im Whirlpool unterm Sternenhimmel verbracht.

Für uns steht fest, wenn wir nach Cornwall zurückkehren, dann immer wieder gerne auf die Steppes Farm.

The name of Tintagel immediately conjures images of King Arthur and the legends associated with him. The blackened ruins of Tintagel Castle brood over the coast, but no-one can say for sure whether this was really the place where Uther Pendragon seduced the Queen of Cornwall.

The ruined Norman castle is much more recent than the times of the legend, although there are signs of much earlier settlements. Other legends have it that Camelford has a connection with Camelot and that King Arthur died at Slaughterbridge and his spirit returned to haunt Tintagel. 15 miles away is Dozmary Pool on Bodmin Moor. Legend says this was the last resting place of Excalibur, King Arthur's magical sword. Whatever the truth of the old stories, the coastal scenery is certainly the stuff of legends.

Boscastle - with its medieval past and distinctive natural harbour is one of Cornwall's most romantic places. It is a village steeped in history, associated with authors and artists who have been inspired by its remoteness and rugged beauty. Abundant in wildlife, dramatic walks and historic features.

As you stroll down the long valley to the harbour, passing thickset fishermen's cottages, you'll understand why Boscastle remains one of Cornwall's most romantic places. There's a great selection of shops, galleries, a pottery and the renowned Museum of Witchcraft, too. The area also has a number of gorgeous churches, most dating from Norman times and in such beautiful countryside there are plenty of good walks that start in the village.

Follow the Poldark & Rosamunde Pilcher filming trails. Bring the television adaptations of the books to life by visiting the gorgeous filming locations used.

Bodmin Moor is just 0.75 mile away from Steppes Farm, with Brown Willy and Roughtor being a great attraction for walkers and riders alike. The local Camel Trail is close by and you can hire bikes from Wadebridge.

There are attractions to suit all tastes which include Newquay Sea Life centre, the Eden Project, Boscastle and cosmopolitan Padstow and Rock.
