About Tim Mercer

Tim Mercer works in London and lives with his wife, Samantha and two children in Wimbledon. Tim spent the first 20 years of his life in North Cornwall and has many happy childhood memories of the beautiful beach at Crackington Haven.

Tim Mercer purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Tim Mercer chose Cornwall

We bought the cottage to be near to family in Cornwall, to use as a home for family holidays and for surfing with our two young boys.

What makes this cottage unique

Naturally I am biased but I do believe the bay at Crackington is one of the most beautiful on the Cornish coast and an absolute delight for children. The cottage is gorgeous and in a great location for exploring all of Cornwall. Rain or shine, we always leave feeling refreshed and rested.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a super base to escape and explore. A very cosy cottage thanks to the underfloor heating and long burner, even in February. We managed to see and do a lot in between the Spring showers. The information which the owner sent us in advance was very helpful in making the most of our stay. We loved the walk down to the beach and timed it so that we had Sunday lunch at the pub on the beach and then walked back to the cottage in our own time. We would definitely recommend this place!

Superb stay

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was the perfect getaway we were looking for. Very comfortable and quiet.

We had 3 sunny warm days and enjoyed these visiting some of the many pretty interesting villages.

A must is the walk to the waterfall at St Nectans even my 8 month pregnant daughter made the steep walk up and said it was worth it.

We will return to this part of Cornwall after falling in love with it.

Thank you Tim for the use of the cottage.

Clean, quaint,country-side,romantic.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was in a beautiful part of Cornwall. Walks along the cliffs as well as many beaches to visit. The kitchen had everything you needed. The bed was very comfortable. The garden was a delight with a long view of the sea.

Tim was a great help when we booked with many different places to visit.

The bonus was the general store was right next door especially if you have had a long drive.

We would love to visit again and will certainly recommend this property.

Beautiful cosy cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cottage was perfect for our cosy weekend away. It is Ideally located for walks and dining out (in particular I highly recommend the Boscastle farm shop and also Coombe Barton inn) but also provides everything you need to stay in and read in front of the fire all day. The post office next door was very handy for matches and delicious local bacon. Although it's not detached we didn't hear a thing from any neighbours and it is such a peaceful setting in general, a venture down to the bottom of the garden to see the sea and sunset was definitely worth it even in the cold of an English January. Prior to arriving we received lots of helpful information from Tim which was very much appreciated. Overall I would highly recommend!

Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little cottage, which offered us a retreat at a difficult time. It had everything we needed, in a beautiful area. The cottage was well presented, equipped with numerous books, games and local information. Crackington Havens pub and cafés offer a wide choice, on the sea front. Village shop useful next door to the cottage and lots of costal walks to enjoy. Tim provided excellent customer service, prompt replies to emails and requests, which was very helpful.
