Living and Eating

Greeting guests with gorgeously ample archways and sleek, polished concrete floors reminiscent of a chic, overseas villa, Bargos features spacious open plan living and dining quarters for gathering. Designed to emphasise indoor-outdoor living, the retreat overlooks the verdant green valleys beyond the retreat, whilst various doors lead to the sun-soaked garden where mesmeric alfresco moments await.

Filled with historic and contemporary oil paintings tucked in ornate brass frames and original interior pieces such as a vintage Mallorcan coffee table, the charming living area offers a captivating space to unwind. There is choice of seating beside the heavenly wood burning stove, including a brushed cream linen sofa, an assortment of antique armchairs, and a sumptuous ruby-red velvet sofa for three.

Wander through the hallway past the sweeping spiral staircase to find the divine kitchen and dining space, where bespoke wooden cabinets are paired with natural textiles in a symphony of soft tones. Everything you could need for crafting culinary delights is on hand, including an Everhot with three ovens and two hobs, a dishwasher and a fridge/freezer with an ice dispenser.

Folklore style feasting awaits around the understated solid pine dining table, where long benches paired with the subtle glimmer of candlelight ensure splendid mealtimes together.

For those looking for a serene spot to chronicle their travel reveries or settle down with a book, uncover the study, where you'll find an antique Whig table with chair and a rustic pew-style bench.

You'll find the addition of an Alexa sound system for curating your staycation playlist, along with a Smart TV for those cosy nights in. Additionally, a selection of retro board games can be found in the bench in the study.

In the utility room, you can find both a washing machine and tumble dryer.


Sleeping & Bathing

There are three dreamlike bedrooms to choose from at Bargos.

Exuding Castilian elegance, the master bedroom can be found on the ground floor, where a king-sized bed dressed in ecru-toned linens beckons for uninterrupted slumbers. This space is complete with two bedside tables, a chest of drawers, a set of vintage Spanish leather chairs, and a large window overlooking the garden, where a Beth Chatto inspired garden is a simply otherworldly spot to savour your day-rise blend.

There is also a dressing area, where you can find an additional chest of drawers, a wardrobe, and a demi-lune dressing table with a stool.

Romantic bubble-topped moments await through the adjoining door in the beautiful en suite. Styled in gorgeous stone by Lusso and with gold feature accents, here you'll find a large freestanding bathtub for two, a large Microcement rainfall shower along with a double basin with a large mirror.

Upstairs, wistful morning lie-ins await in the second bedroom, where an antique French bed with a Carolyn Quartermaine note sheet print headboard takes centre stage. Alongside the large desk-come-dressing table with a chair, there is a quirky Lloyd Loom occasional chair, two bedside tables, and small storage cupboard for storing your belongings . Just next door is the elegant oak-panelled family bathroom, complete with a bathtub with a showerhead.

In the adorable final bedroom, you will find equally calming tones and twin zip and link beds, offering the option of a super-king when flexible sleeping arrangements are necessary.

On the ground floor, an additional bathroom with a vintage Carrara marble basin and rainfall shower can be found - the perfect addition after days spent at the beach.

Each bathroom at Bargos has heated rails to ensure towels are kept warm and fluffy.


Outdoor space

Step outside to discover the dramatic garden space, nestled between towering oak trees with three sweeping lawns overlooking the verdant valley and classic boatyard beyond.

On the front terrace, a round wooden dining table for six promises dreamlike dining beside stunning country scenes, alongside a pair of Adirondack chairs which invite for conversation beside the firepit. Head to the East terrace to find two reclining loungers to enjoy on sun-kissed days.

To the back of the retreat lies a series of raised vegetable beds, which guests are welcome to pick when in season.

A barbecue will also be available for use during the summer months.

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Bargos:

Absolutely fantastic! Great for adults and kids and with a truly stunning view, ideal to relax and enjoy yourself. Secluded enough to be quiet but close enough to local facilities and beaches. We'd definitely return to Bargos.

Bargos is an exquisite property, with beautiful furnishings and excellent quality cooking and living facilities. A totally luxury holiday for myself and my family. We would definitely love to return as soon as we can, we just wish that we had stayed longer.

Bargos is a peaceful house which is beautiful inside and out. The view of the valley is outstanding and we saw an owl flying in front of the house nightly- that is super special for city dwellers! We loved our stay and felt so rejuvenated from our time there. Thank you.

Beautiful location so peaceful was hard to leave.

Fantastic retreat and an amazing property and location.
