Please note that the cottage is located 15 yards plus 56 steps up from the road, which provide the property with splendid views, but the house is therefore unsuitable for the elderly and/or disabled visitors.

We do not provide towels for hire at this property.

The Area

Crackington Haven is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It was once a small harbour importing coal and limestone and it has managed to escape any development and is now a small unspoiled, secret, cove.

When the conditions are right it is a great surfing spot and during the summer holiday weeks two life guards are on duty from 10 to 6 each day. In the spring the cliffs are covered in heather and it is a wonderful place to see the wild flowers and hear the birdsong.

The gently sloping beach is perfect for exploring or for relaxing and although pebbly when the tide is in there is plenty of sand for building castles when the tide is out. Crackington really is a special place perfect for a family holiday away from the crowds.

For convenience there is a cafe in the village across the road from the beach serving lovely local food – including home made pasties, cream teas and cakes, and the ever popular ice creams. As well, in the summer, it sells beach kit, wet suits, body boards – and also rents wet suits. The family pub, The Coombe Barton Inn, serves delicious food and has a wonderful terrace to watch the sun going down over the bay.

Local Things to do

The cottage has a book with suggestions of what to do in the immediate area, including local beaches and walks.

Take a wooded valley walk inland from the back of the house, and return by the cliff path, enjoying breathtaking scenery and wildlife.

Take a walk up Penkenna, Cornwall’s highest cliff at 735 feet.

Local Things to do (as advised by the tourist office):

Take a wooded valley walk inland from the car park and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and wildlife.

Take a walk North to Pencarrow Point and climb up to Cornwall’s highest cliff at 735 feet.

Discover the inspiring parish of St Gennys: churches, ancient farms, historical sites & buildings and tales of shipwrecks.

Observe the famous zig-zag folds and faults in rock formations formed millennia ago, from black shale, sandstone and quartz veins.

As the tide goes out see what you can find while rock pooling.

Being on the North Coast, there is a swell, so the sea is great for body boarding and surfing. During the main summer holidays the beach has two life guards on duty from 10 to 6 each day.

Please note we cannot accept bookings for groups under 25 years of age or hen/stag parties.

“Loved the house, it’s position and Crackington Haven. Stayed at Old Cottage last year. Will be back again we hope.”

About Timothy Abbott - Cornish Seaview Cottages

Hello, I run a holiday company called Cornish Seaview Cottages which advertises cottages in Cornwall. Having renovated a number of properties in Cornwall and then used them as holiday lettings, I decided to purchase a shell of a house and barn and build a holiday property in France which has had very favorable feedback. We now have a few more properties in France and our Cornish properties are also growing in number. As a small friendly company we have many loyal customers who enjoy staying in our properties and return year after year. We now look forward to welcoming you.

Homely

  • 4 of 5

Stunning location, however a bit of a trek up to the entrance but the views are worth it.

Needs a microwave and could do with updating in the shower/kitchen areas.

Would recommend this property just for the location and homely feel.
