This converted annexe is situated in a quiet spot in the village of Crackington Haven in beautiful North Cornwall with an abundance of walks on its doorstep.

A homely converted annexe on the outskirts of the peaceful rural village of Crackington Haven, less than 2 miles from the beach. It's an excellent location for a romantic retreat for two, especially couples who love water sports due to its north coast location where you can expect to find plenty of surfer culture. It's very well-suited to those who enjoy walking holidays as it is only 1 mile to the South West Coast Path or 25 miles to the rugged Bodmin Moor.

A light and bright property for two, it's been decorated in a neutral palette with a stylish, minimalistic layout. The chic decoration throughout and cosy furniture makes it feel like a home-from-home. After walking the coast or swimming in the sea, settle down to dinner on the cosy sofa or watch the stars through skylights in the pretty bedrooms.

With Crackington Haven Beach a few miles away, Widemouth Bay and the spectacular beaches of Bude within 15 miles, you can spend the entire holiday laying on golden sand and surfing the excellent waves that hit the Cornish North Coast. Journey southwards and you will reach cute Boscastle, rugged Tintagel with its castle, the unspoilt harbour village of Port Isaac and the posh surfer destination of Polzeath (all within 20 miles). Venture inland for Bodmin Moor (25 miles) or the famous Eden Project (32 miles) for more day trips.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A super cosy cottage;peaceful location with wonderful views. The only thing that wasnt there anymore is the shop and post office. The local pub is very friendly and serves great food!

Reviewed by Deborah 13th July 2019

Lovely base to leave the car and stroll 1.25miles down to the coast path or to the lovely pub. Loved having the owners horses close by, owners very helpful and welcoming as was their lovely dog. Loved the spacious annex with amazing views we enjoyed over breakfast. Easy to find and there is a bus stop very close by. Will be returning next year.

Great location for enjoying the coast and countryside. No Dogs allowed on the local beach, but others not too far away. Be prepared for very hilly terrain, and seek out the alternative local pubs away from tourist areas for additional value for money.

We stayed here for a week in June, it was very clean, comfortable and the owners are very friendly too. The only thing I would say is the local pub is down a very very steep hill, it's not for the faint hearted!

Reviewed by Andrew 11th May 2019

Ideally situated for walks along the coastal paths although they are listed as moderate they can be very demanding.Also the nearest shop is approximately 3 miles away,and most of the beaches are not dog friendly the nearest dog friendly beach we found was about 7 miles away.The local pub serves good food approximately 1 mile away but best driven toRead moreo as the road is very narrow with steep hills and sharp bends.

Excellent accommodation and friendly owners who went out of their way for us to make our stay easier( fetched us a missed basket as saw baby was small and thought the travel cot supplied would be too big) washing machine was very handy with a baby!!

Brilliant location with fantastic views and plenty of space, even in the bedroom despite the low ceilings. Well equipped kitchen and cleaning supplies. Owners dogs run free on site, something to be aware of.

Lovely cottage great views and friendly owners.

Reviewed by Mike 11th August 2018

The cottage was as described on the web site. It had everything that we needed and the wi fi was welcome. The downstairs bathroom and low sloping ceiling in the bedroom were inconvenient, but it was mentioned in the description. The enclosed garden was brilliant for our dog. There are plenty of footpaths nearby. Although only a mile from the pub,whRead moreich serves good food, it is not a stroll away. In the evening it is a hard slog back up the hill along a narrow road with no street lights. Hide

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
