Old Cottage is a lovely 3 bedroom whitewashed semi-detached cottage only 60 metres from the beach.
The beach of Crackington Haven is an unspoilt cove, flanked by magnificent cliffs, which are a mass of wildflowers in the spring and early summer. If you enjoy shrimping in the rockpools, marvelling at the fascinating geology of the local rock features, playing a game of beach cricket or spending an exhilarating time in the surf, you will love your stay in Crackington. The Heritage coastal footpath runs by the property, with miles of coastal footpath and stunning sea views. Nearby Boscastle offers boat trips and sea fishing. In addition there is pony trekking and also free use of the 2 local tennis courts. A family pub, the Combe Barton, is only 50 meters away and there is a shop on the beach which hires out surf boards and wetsuits and provides lovely coffee, crab sandwiches and ginger icecream.
Crackington Haven is supported by a useful range of local amenities and the village of Wainhouse Corner is three miles away on the A39, with a village shop and garage. The coastal resort of Bude is 12 miles away.
There is also a great local shop in Crackington village which will deliver grocery goods to Old Cottage. You can order online before your holiday. Visit www.crackingtonstores.co.uk

Parking for 2 cars is available in the car park 100 yards from the house and there are free permits available in the property for this.
