Property Details

Old Cottage’s slate porch leads into a charming living room with a lovely open inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove. Large comfy ‘loaf’ sofas flank the fireplace, so ideal to cosy up on chilly evenings or to collapse into after a busy day walking, chasing waves, building sandcastles!

The kitchen is to the side of the sitting room. The dining table, benches and chairs are beside the window so you can sit and look out across the coastline. The ‘country- cottage’ kitchen is fully equipped and has a new granite work surface, butlers sink, cooker and microwave, along with a washing machine and dryer.

The original wooden stairs lead up to three stunning bedrooms, sympathetically refurbished keeping the original wooden floors and doors. The 2 double bedrooms and one twin room have been stylishly decorated with designer accessories added throughout creating a modern twist to this still very traditional coastal cottage. There is a newly refurbished bathroom with a toilet and over-the-bath shower with simple contemporary fittings.

Outside there is a small sunny paved area with an elevated seat looking out to sea, a truly calm spot to relax and watch the stunning sunsets.

When the family return from the beach there is an outdoor hot water shower, perfect for rinsing off wetsuits, sandy feet, and the dog! A further toilet is accessed from the outside to avoid getting sand inside and there is a storage area for all the beach gear to be tidied into.

Old Cottage has free, allocated parking for 1 car which is next to the cottage.

Happy to accept 1 dog at £25. Changeover day is a Friday. Bed linen and towels included, please remember beach towels.

Liam – September 2021

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Crackington Haven! This location has everything you need for a perfect holiday – beautiful coastal trails at your doorstep, the beach and water activities, tennis courts, cafes and a pub and all within walking distance! The cottage itself is quaint and cozy. The fireplace was delightful for chilly evenings. Being able to see the ocean from your doorstep was just amazing! Would highly recommend.

“A beautiful old cottage in the most fantastic location. We had an amazing few days away thoroughly enjoying the beach, the sea and the SW Coast Path – and then coming back and it being really cosy around the fire. And the perfect highlight is being able to watch the sunset over the sea from the little patio.”

Sharon – September 2020

“Beautiful cosy cottage. Perfectly located for the beach and coastal path and near several good places to eat. Well-equipped kitchen and living room with wood burner and plenty of board games (for all ages) for cosy evenings. Warm outside shower for washing away sand was a thoughtful touch. Definitely recommend.”

Laura – September 2020

“We have just returned from a lovely stay at old cottage. The cottage was well equipped and had everything that we needed for an enjoyable stay. The kitchen diner is on the smaller side but was perfect for the two of us. Plenty of seating In the living area And all of the bedrooms are spacious. Bathroom newly fitted with great shower. We were lucky to have lovely weather during our stay so although we didn’t get to enjoy the log burner we enjoyed many evenings sat out on the terrace In the sun. There is a sea view from the seating however was partially obscured by the neighbouring cottages hedges. Although on the main road into Crackington haven the cottage Itself felt really private. Parking is just up the road and there were always spaces. Lovely sunsets to be had at the beach. We would definitely return to old cottage .”

Karen – August 2020

The cottage is very tastefully decorated with everything needed for a wonderful stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our week there and were really sad to leave. Would highly recommend a visit.”

Gorgeous cottage in a fantastic position. Crackington Haven is a great place for a away from it all family holiday no matter what the weather and the cottage is the ideal place to enjoy it from.

Annie, August 2021

 

Great Cottage, in a wonderful location. Beach, Pub, cafes are excellent. Coastal Path by your door. A great place to stay. Cottage provides everything you need for your stay. Yes the stairs are narrow and steep, yes the front bedroom ceilings are low in places, but that's half the fun. Thatched Cornish cottages are never boring. Recomended.

A very pretty cottage in a perfect position for the beach. There is little to beat taking an early morning cup of coffee down to one of the benches by the sea and watching the waves and dog walkers.

The Area

What we love about the area...

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 exploring the rock pools, playing a game of beach cricket or spending an exhilarating time in the surf, you will love your stay in Crackington. Only the small village road separates the sea from two well-stocked beach shops, where you can hire surf boards & wetsuits; the charming cafes serving delicious crab sandwiches, pasties, drinks and all flavours of ice cream and the excellent Coombe Barton pub. 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

The local village tennis courts are easy and cheap to hire, whilst the famous South West Coast Path runs through Crackington and offers miles of well sign posted trails following the spectacular coastline.
