About the property

Cottage in Crackington Haven, Cornwall, England - A Really Cornish Hide-away, Total Switch Off, Enjoy the Surf Or Walks

Pa’s Cottage nestles perfectly in the Haven, with stunning countryside around and a beach seconds from its door. Pa’s makes for a relaxing holiday you will only read about in books, some families have been visiting Pa’s for over 25 years they love it so much. This gem of a cottage is a perfect get away. It sleeps up to 8 people, is comfortable and extremely well equipped from the linen, kitchen equipment, to boogie boards and padded cushions for the beach. The Cottage also is lucky to have its own parking for 2-3 cars and a lovely south facing garden with a little summerhouse in addition to a front flag stone terrace. The cottage does welcome well-behaved four legged friends. There are 2 beach cafes, one of which hires out wet suits and surf boards, a great pub that is family friendly with good food to keep everyone happy. A Post office and store in Higher Crackington that you can call or email with a list of groceries (good wine selection) to be waiting for your collection or they will deliver when you arrive, leaving space in the car for sun cream and walking shoes! No terrestrial TV but loads of DVDs for kids and adults. There is Wi-Fi broadband, board games, loads of books, boules for the garden or beach and tennis rackets for the tennis courts over-looking the sea, you can escape from the rat race at Pa’s and have a real break!

About Kerry Harvey

My husband has been visiting Crackington with his family since he was a small child and rented Pa's on several occasions. Now with our own tribe of 3 kids we too have spent some great holidays there. When Pa's came on the market it was a no brain decision to buy it and to continue renting out this little gem.

We visit often and have spent some great weeks and weekends with friends and family.

Crackington gets under your skin, a true escape to re-charge the batteries, Pa's is home from home.

Kerry Harvey purchased this cottage in 2012

This property doesn't have any reviews yet!



Crackington's beach is only 80 meters walk from Pa's, making it easy to nip back to the cottage if you forget something or to send the teenagers ahead to hire their boards and wetsuits.

The beach is part sand and part rock. There are life guards in the Summer. The beach has dramatic tides that go out a quarter of a mile.

There are loads of other fabulous beaches to visit from Bude to St.Ives.


You need a car to reach Pa's and enjoy Cornwall. The two closest airports are Exeter or Newquay, you would then need to hire a car.


Boscastle 14mins, Bude 20mins, Port Isaac 30mins, Padstow 50mins

Further Details:

There are two good stores with post offices, both shops supply basic groceries and news papers, for that big food shop go to Morrisons in Bude 20mins away.

The Coombe Barton Pub is family friendly and does good food and is only a stones throw away over looking the beach. There are also the two Cafes do great lunches and home made cakes.
