Church Cottage is lovely 200 year old barn conversion with spectacular sea views. The upstairs living area and the garden look straight out to sea. Most days, Lundy Island is seen on the horizon.

There are a number of restaurants in the immediate area. Large double bedroom with incredible vaulted ceiling. A standard size twin room and a small single.

Cosy wood burner and central heating for the winter months.

About Francis Crocker

I have lived in North Cornwall for nearly 40 years and love the rugged and wild nature of the coastline with beautiful sandy and rocky coves. (I have travelled extensively in many parts of the world, but no where rivals the unique beauty of Crackington Haven and surrounding area). A great passion of mine is wildlife conservation and leading small group guided walks. I take guests on regular walks to see deer, badgers and seals whilst also learning a great deal about the natural history of the area.

Francis Crocker purchased this house in 2002

Why Francis Crocker chose Saint Gennys

Church Cottage is set beside the historic Norman St. Gennys Church (no bells so no need to worry about being disturbed).

The cottage is a barn conversion (dating back over 200 years). The bed rooms are down stairs (east facing so that they make the most of the early morning sun). The kitchen and living area are upstairs so that the incredible sea views can be enjoyed fully.

The enclosed garden looks straight out to the Atlantic Ocean.

I bought the property because it is in one of the most beautiful coastal locations in England.

What makes this house unique

Church Cottage is set in a quiet, timeless location whilst being easily accessible by car.

If you enjoy quiet relaxation then this is the place for you, whilst only a short walk from the beach and pub at Crackington Haven.

The views and the coastal walking are magnificent surrounding the cottage.
