If you dream of beach barbeques, orange sunsets and roaring surf, then this New Zealand inspired retreat is your perfect match. Situated on the north Cornish coast near Holywell Bay, this laid back beauty oozes relaxed surfer style, blended effortlessly with luxurious living. With heated flooring throughout, a covered deck with fabulous outdoor wood burning stove, outdoor bath, king-sized bed and oodles of living space, this is the ultimate beachy love nest for two.


Whatever the weather, Barefoot Beach Hut has plenty of space. With the perfect blend of both outdoor and indoor living, you can choose from the 60's inspired indoor living area with statement Orla Keily wallpaper, plush leather sofa to sink into (and maybe watch your favourite TV series), and cosy lighting. Step outside and you'll find the ultimate outdoor living space - a covered, private decked area complete with wood burning stove and outdoor seating, Kiwi style.


The fabulously stylish kitchen is filled with everything you'll need to cook up a storm for your loved one behind the silky-smooth white surfaces. There's a great kitchen bar as well for a bite to eat on the go. Outside, there's a fantastic BBQ plus beautiful dining area under the covers - the perfect spot for long, lazy meals - perhaps barbequed seafood caught fresh that morning -with a bottle or two of your favourite tipple, of course.


The en suite bedroom, with super-comfy king size bed, is blissfully beachy with coastal inspired decor in colours of sea grass, aqua and white - just what you need to escape to at the end of the day. There's a nifty door that leads right out onto the deck so you can drift outside and wake up properly with the sun on your face.


Have we mentioned the stunning outside bath? Designed perfectly for two, this deep tub can be filled with oodles of hot, sumptuous water and bubbles for the ultimate soak - just lean back and watch the moon and canopy of stars above. Inside, the en suite boasts a heavenly walk-in rain shower - perfect for washing the sand off of bare feet. There's also a separate loo and sink in the utility room.

Outside space

Barefoot Beach Hut really does have the ultimate outdoor space. Drawing inspiration from our cousins in the Southern Hemisphere, the lines are blurred as to where the indoor space ends and the outdoor begins, being filled with a bath, dining table, wood burning stove, BBQ and seating. With the heat from the fire warming the whole enclosed garden and the seating area fully covered, it doesn't matter if the weather is more of a drizzle than a sizzle.


There is on drive parking for one car.

In the Area

Just off the Atlantic highway, Barefoot Beach Hut is perfectly located whether you want to be out in the surf or deep in the countryside. Adventuring to the coast from your cosy retreat couldn't be dreamier; don your walking boots and begin this stroll along the country lane which leads to a winding coastal path. Venture along this twisting trail until you reach the entrance to Cornish fields. Meander through the pastures, peek at the wildlife and seasonal flora until you catch sight of the mesmerising ocean views! Stumble upon the picturesque sand dunes of Perranporth (dog friendly all year round!) and relish in its splendour. This scenic wander will take around half an hour, perfect for discovering the beauty of the Cornish coast.

This is a foodie haven too! Follow the same beautiful walk or take a short drive to Perranporth where you will discover the fabulous Summer House Restaurant and The Watering Hole - a bar literally on the beach! The Smuggler's Inn in nearby Cubert is great for food too (make sure to book). The sensational eateries of St Agnes are just a short drive away, whilst up the coast you'll find Padstow - home to Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth and their twist on Cornish cuisine. The Pavillion Ice Cream Parlour and The Callestick Ice Cream Farm both sell fantastic ice cream (and dog friendly ice cream!) just a 5 minute drive away. For active types, why not book yourself some surfing lessons, or if you're a pro, head to Holywell beach, Crantock or Penhale for some of the best surf beaches around. If you'd rather stay on land, pull on your boots and explore the gorgeous South West Coastal Path.

With a romantic bathtub for two under the stars and an outdoor fire, this deliciously dreamy retreat is perfect for laid-back lovers with a taste for the outdoors.

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

A beautiful property, amazing attention to detail, so perfectly planned- infact larger than we expected from the photographs. We loved the outside space and bath. The best welcome hamper we have ever had! A very luxurious stay … thankyou.

Stylish and well-designed retreat, small but perfectly formed and within easy reach of so many glorious North Coast beaches and stunning walks on the SW coast path. Loved it!

A wonderfully welcoming retreat from the busy world

An amazing place to escape

We had a wonderful stay at Barefoot Beach Hut and a lovely welcome from the owners, flowers, fizz and a hand written card. The hut was spotless throughout and the design of the property was fabulous, the outside area was amazing and definitely had the wow factor !! We loved the fact that we were in a quiet village setting yet we could leave the hut on foot walk down the lane and be at the beach. Great location for visiting the overall area but the best part of the day for us was returning back to the hut dining outside and having a soak in the bath with a glass of champagne whilst looking at the stars. I would definitely book again and recommend to family and friends.

Superb and as described

You couldn’t want for more from a romantic getaway for two. Location is perfect for exploring many beautiful parts of Cornwall. There was so much information at the property to give ideas about days out. The welcome pack was sublime, especially the fresh bread. Very impressed with how well equipped the property was. The shower was wonderful and the bed was so comfortable. The outdoor area was perfect for cosy evenings, and the bath was a very welcome and enjoyable addition. Even on a rainy evening, we were so comfortable.

We had a wonderful relaxing time, the location was perfect base for visiting various places such as St Mawes, St Ives, Tintagel & Padstow. Would return

We couldn't fault this property!

Beautiful property in great location work excellent facilities . Would love to go back and enjoy again

Stunning romantic retreat. Graham and Helen have thought of everything and are so friendly and helpful. Wonderful location. We will be back !

Lovely cottage for a romantic retreat within easy walking distance of the beach, and Perranporth, and great for a base tom pop out and enjoy the rest area with easy drives to many detonations, would love to return sometime soon

Quite simply beautiful, immaculately furnished, spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. We have 2 other Boutique Retreats cottages booked in November and December.....the bar has been set very high!

Very highly recommend and we will definitely return.

The Barefoot Beach Hut is a exceptional property, a place to relax from the moment you walk through the door. Put this place on your bucket list!

A lovely quiet comfortable property away from the crowds. Great walks on our door step and the owners were at hand to welcome and solve any issues or queries. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Fabulous property in a great location - easy to get to everywhere. The cottage was excellent and had great outside space as well. The owner could not have been more helpful when needed. We have booked to return next year.

We absolutely loved our stay at Barefoot Beach Hut, it was exactly what we hoped for. The location is perfect, a lovely quiet village, but very well positioned to access all of the places we wanted to visit. The cottage itself was such a cosy home from home, and we didn’t want to leave! Would definitely recommend to all our friends and family.

'We absolutely loved The Beach Hut. The outside space is great and we made full use of the bath, the log burner, the sun loungers, the sofa and chairs - everything really except the BBQ as we couldn’t be bothered! The whole place is very well thought out as a luxury retreat for two (plus dog, who loved the underfloor heating! ) Lovely welcoming touches including some goodies. Lots of lovely beaches and walks nearby but we always looked forward to returning in the evening to chill. We really appreciated the effort that has been put into this place to make it special. Oh and it was sparkling clean!' - September 2020

'Really well located and the best equipped self-catering accommodation we've stayed in, especially for a smaller property. We were impressed by the use of space and ingenuity of design features. We were given more than enough information about staying there in the welcome pack and we liked the leaflet drawer and extra books. The food items and treats that were left for us made us feel very welcome and were much appreciated.' - July 2019
