This pretty property nestles in a secluded setting in the grounds of the owners' 5.5 acre smallholding, boasts countryside views, and has been lovingly furnished to provide a relaxed couples retreat.

Head towards the north coast and you will discover that the coastline is populated with must-see destinations including ever popular Padstow, a must for all seafood lovers and home of Rick Stein’s famed restaurant, and the picture postcard Port Isaac, well known as the setting of ITV's Doc Martin. There are also some fabulous expansive beaches on offer at Bude, Widemouth Bay and Crackington Haven. The unspoilt south coast of Cornwall is also accessible from here and boasts an array of scenic coves and picturesque fishing villages to enjoy, such as Mevagissey, Looe and Polperro. Other attractions and places of interest include Dartmoor National Park, Bodmin Moor, The Eden Project, Tamar Otter Park and Wildwood, the Camel Trail, and Launceston Steam Railway.

Step inside this delightful property which has taken its name from the resident nesting sparrows and you will immediately find yourself in the cosy and impeccably presented kitchen/diner. This beautifully considered area boasts a stunning handcrafted dining table, lovely countryside views and a set of French doors leading to the external decking mean that you can dine alfresco with ease during warm weather. Also perfectly appointed is the kitchen itself which offers a fantastic range of equipment and appliances including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a washing machine. Completing the offering on the ground floor is a contemporary shower room with shower and WC. Heading up the stairs and onto the first floor the accommodation then opens up into an equally impressive and lovingly styled lounge/bedroom with a vaulted ceiling and exposed beams, countryside views, a Smart TV and warming wood burner. Here is the perfect place to relax in style after a day exploring before retiring to the comfortable king-size bed.

Located outside and to the rear and side of the property is a fabulous enclosed garden which offers an area of grass plus also a decked area with panoramic countryside views, garden furniture and a charcoal BBQ. Private off-road parking for one car is located directly outside.

Great location - short drive to the beach. Great beach - Widemouth Beach, dog friendly. Great restaurant - Elements, really good food & service. Sparrow Barn has been converted to such a high standard and has a cosy, relaxed feel. Fantastic views and private.
