Located in Bude, a small and peaceful seaside town in Cornwall, England, this private retreat offers the perfect opportunity for families and friends to relax, enjoy the English countryside and create some memories that will last a lifetime.

Venn Farm, which owns the The Cob, hired the London-based Feilden Fowles architecture practice to convert the traditional barn into a stylish and modern retreat. The result is a spacious, airy and vibrant space that encourages socialization and nature contemplation. Stepping inside, guests are welcomed by the open plan ground floor, where light floods the living room and a wood-burning fireplace warms up the atmosphere. The kitchen is equipped with all the mod cons while the dining room provides enough space for ten people. Upstairs, there are several bedrooms and windows that overlook the countryside. Throughout the house, bright colors and eye-catching patterns combine with more subdued tones and textures, creating a fresh and refreshing modern space. Outside, two private terraces and a large garden provide the perfect opportunity to play, admire nature or enjoy dinners by the light of a setting sun. The beach is located nearby and there are plenty of areas to explore around the retreat. If you’re thinking about taking a trip to the UK and relax completely with family and friends, check out the official site for more info on amenities and availability.
