Property code: PENKE

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.

The property location is good and the views are lovely. It was clean and most of the essentials were provided (washing up liquid etc.).

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
