Property Details

Dingley Dell is a beautiful family home set in gorgeous grounds only yards from the fabulous beach.

The house has spacious accommodation for family groups, sleeping 7  plus a cot in 4 bedrooms.

The triple aspect lounge is large but has a cosy feel in winter with a large feature fireplace and  gas coal effect log burner to keep you warm.  There is a second, separate sitting room for larger groups if you need to have your own quiet space.  Both rooms have super views out to sea and the impressive cliffs.

There is a separate living room which has a Sky sports and movies TV (excluding pay per view programmes such as Sky Store)and the good news is that you can watch different films and sports programmes from the TV in the larger living room.  This room benefits from an electric coal effect fire which makes it even more cosy.

The owners have provided  SKY TV in the main lounge – something to keep the whole family happy.  There is also WiFi available along with a DVD and CD player.

The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher and washing machine and there is a tumble dryer for guests use.  There is an area of seating in the kitchen for meals if you prefer and don’t want to spread out into the dining room.  You will also appreciate the warmth from the gas coal effect fire in this room.

You can walk from the kitchen into the garage where there is another fridge freezer and a dryer.

The three bedrooms upstairs have uninterrupted sea views and the fourth bedroom has a wooded valley view and also benefits from the morning sun.

Upstairs there is a family bathroom with separate toilet and a shower room downstairs.

Storage heating, electricity included.

Outside there is a large terrace overlooking the sea – perfect for entertaining and a barbeque is provided for your use.

Undoubtedly one of the best features of the property is the magical garden – a very special place with secret areas to explore.  The attractive sunken dell provides a shady retreat and a pretty stream runs through the bottom of the garden.  This in turn leads onto woods and further walks are possible from the property along the coast and inland.  With stunning views and a feeling of space and tranquility you won’t want to venture far away.

There is also a tennis court in front of the property overlooking the sea, which is included in the tariff.

There are a lot of lovely dog walks in the area which include coastal walks.  However, the beach is closed to dogs between Easter Sunday and the 30th September.  You can go to Widemouth Bay any time of the year.

There is sufficient parking for three cars and we would ask you to not park in the private road, which leads to the house, as this can cause problems for other vehicles trying to gain access to other properties in the road.

Crackington Haven

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.

Food Delivery

There is also a great local shop in the village which will deliver grocery goods to Dingley Dell.  You can order online before your holiday.  Visit  In addition you can order food for delivery from Waitrose.
