Location

Special interest holidays:

It is the perfect walking area with the coastal path running close to the property.

Coast/Beach:

350 yards to Crackington Haven Beach. A fabulous cove with rock pools and plenty for building castles when the tide is out. It is a good surfing spot when the conditions are right.

Distances:

Nearest village store is 1 mile away

Boscastle Harbour 7 miles

Widemouth Bay 8 miles

Bude 10 miles

Further Details:

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 there is a lifeguard during the summer holiday weeks. 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 produce and homemade goodies. The family pub, The Coombe Barton Inn, serves food and there is a local shop within walking distance of the property for beach items.

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.

Golf clubs are at Bude 11 miles away or Trethorn 14 miles away

Dingley Dell

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in Crackington since 1950. Dingley Dell was the first thing we saw looking out of the Windows towards the sea, and became the dream house of us all. The house is stunning with wonderful views, beautiful period furnishings and features. Our fears about the possibility of an old and cold environment were quickly allayed by the effectiveness of the storage heaters throughout the house and the inglenook gas fire in the lounge. It rained for five days but we were just happy to stay indoors most of the time and watch the seas pounding Penkenna and the black rocks.

An excellent base for a family seaside holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Dingley Dell several times when it was let out by the previous owner so we particularly wanted to take this opportunity to return. Unlike many holiday properties that we have stayed in, it is a comfortable, well cared for family home and we liked the various improvements that the present owners have made. All our needs were provided for and the grand children (aged between 2 and 7) loved playing in the spacious and well kept gardens. We appreciated being able to use the courts belonging to the tennis club and loved watching the sunsets from the lounge window. The weather was perfect enabling us to spend time on the beach and do our favourite coastal walks (without having to pay out on parking fees!). We certainly hope to return in future years and wouldn't have any hesitation recommending Dingle Dell to others.

Great family holiday home!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed returning to Dingley Dell after break of about 15 yrs. Always loved this house, the views are amazing and the garden a total delight. The improvements are just that, the house has so much character and now it is even more comfortable. Still a bit of a problem with the beds in the back bedroom squeaking. It's a really short walk to beach, pub, cafes and coastal path. Lots of exciting places to visit in the area. Didn't wast to leave, looking forward to returning.

Wonderful place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house - really comfortable with everything you need for a great stay (particularly the kitchen which had everything us foodies needed to cook). The location is perfect and the views amazing. Not recommending it too much as I don't want it booked up for our next visit!

Wonderful stay at Crackington Haven

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning setting - with views second to none. Great family house which was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Plenty of rooms to spread out which was ideal for our family group. Will definitely return.

A Real Seaview

  • 5 of 5

You know you go on holiday and they say 'with sea views' and you have to be Quasimodo to bend to see a wave. This property has the 'seaview'. Don't read this... go and see for yourselves. Then enjoy the comfort of the house, or walk down to beach and enjoy not only beach but the great walks up either side of the beach. Or pop into pub or kill yourself in cream with the scones at the cafe.

The house/cottage is very comfortable, spacious and a wonderful place to stay. The best part?… The chair that overlooks the seaview in front of the lounge window. I would recommend this cottage to you whole heartily, but you’d book it and then I won’t be able to go again next year!

Ohhhh… don’t’ try the 1,000 piece jigsaw… really, take a relaxing book instead!
