Cosy Chalet With Sea Views, By The Beach



Updated: 14-Oct-2016
Pen Cliff Holiday Seaside Chalet in Crackington Haven, Bude, Cornwall - Just a few yards from the beach, quietly situated with private patio/garden, on the coast path

A delightful,individual wooden chalet nestled into the side of the cliff with amazing views over the beach at Crackington Haven. Sheltered, private garden and patio with sea-views. On the coast path,a few meters from the lovely beach and close to a couple of nice cafes and a pub overlooking the sea. Local bus service stops by the beach. Very comfortable accommodation with oak floors and leather sofas and open plan living to take advantage of the superb views. Ample heating. A great place to stay at any time of year.

7 nights minimum in high season, short stays in high season only considered last minute.

Electricity is metered and you pay for what you use, this is fairer for you than building it into rental cost.

Regretfully we cannot accept dogs.

Detox by the sea

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin: there were no negatives one could cite about the stay mum and I enjoyed at Pen Cliff. For a Mothering Sunday treat, the weather was pleasant and having the chalet as a retreat was a bonus. Admittedly, aside from exploring the nearby eateries and the seascapes with my trusty Nikon, much of our time was spent sipping Lavazza coffee whilst looking out towards the patio and the many robins who'd visit the garden.

The bottom line is the chalet had the effect of making us not want to leave. It's invitingly seductive in its simplicity: a well equipped kitchen that's a pleasure to cook in; SUPER comfy beds (including the bunk bed where I ventured to slumberland from); a wet room where I languished till I was crinkly because of it's utterly heavenly first thing. And last but not least, the owners - very accommodating and welcoming. Rachel popped by on our departure day and was chatty and friendly. Our one regret was not staying longer, but we'll be revisiting again later this year.

A sublimely delightful gem with everything you could wish for in a getaway.

Owner's Response: It's great to accommodate lovely guests who appreciate the enviable position above the beach that Pen Cliff enjoys. It really is a cosy retreat with wonderful sea views and and a perfect base to enjoy coast path walks and good food by the sea. Thank you for choosing Pen Cliff.

Delightful cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful holiday. The cottage is fantastic, with lovely views of the sea as well as being clean and decorated to a high standard. To be so close to the beach is great and ideal for families and those enjoying walks along the coastal paths.

The opportunity of having your own garden is also welcome as it allows you another place to relax and unwind. The sun sets straight ahead so you benefit from being able to sit on the patio and enjoy the last few hours of sun. The wild birds are always around, ready to eat any crumbs left over from any barbecues or lunches.

Crackington Haven is a lovely village that caters for everyone. The pub and two cafes offer simple but well cooked food which suits most tastes.
