    It was so quiet and tranquil with an awesome little shop which was like going back in time, they were fantastic. Sitting in the jacuzzi at 7:30am just looking across the fields was amazing and just summed up how relaxing it was.

    It is beautifully situated in a very private area with a large private garden that houses the jacuzzi. Views from the jacuzzi are spectacular. The property is very well maintained and well equipped, it is easy to contact the owner. We had an issue with a fuse that blew, the owner directly arranged repairmen to fix the issue. This property remains on our list to return to in the future.

  • "Beautiful well equipped cottage with fabulous views all the way down to the sea."

    The cottage has everything you need and is actually better than the photos (new couches in the lounge). I found the seating area and beds really comfy. I appreciated the little things like plenty of storage space, hooks on the doors and the robes. The kitchen was well equipped with much more than the average cottage. The only little thing I found was missing was somewhere in the main bedroom to do hair/make up. I decent sized movable mirror on the chest of drawers that you can move near to the bedside plugs would solve this. The area is lovely with plenty of places to visit. I would recommend Polzeath Beach as being worth a visit.

    The views are amazing. Garden and hot tub were splendid. The owner Peter has put a lot of thought into equipping the bungalow with games books and dvds if you need them. Spent most of our time in the sun room watching the sunrise and set. Surrounding area is fabulous to explore.

  • "We’ve just spent a wonderful week at Nans Tek."

    The property was probably the best we’ve stayed in on a holiday. It had everything we needed - good quality furnishings, towels and bedding. The kitchen cupboards had plenty of crockery, cutlery, utensils and gadgets. Ample storage spaces too with more than enough cupboards, drawers and hangers. Hot tub was a bonus too and used often. Beautiful part of Cornwall, only a few minutes drive to the beach or a 30-45 minute walk depending on which way you went (A couple of steep hills though!). Beach was great for body boarding and there are two cafes and a pub (would recommend eating there too). Parking all day was £5 in the public car park. Overall a fantastic holiday and would definitely recommend this property. Thank you for a great time.

    Thank you so much Tracy for this wonderful feedback. It certainly is a beautiful part of Cornwall. It would be great to see you back again some time! Peter & Alison Property Owner

    This was our first time to this part of Cornwall and it did not disappoint. The house was just perfect with everything we needed as a family of 4 with older teenage boys. The hot tub was a great addition and in a wonderful location with stunning views. Location wise there is a small local shop and a lovely local pub The Coombe Barton Inn just a few minutes drive and overlooking a small bay. Thanks for a wonderful week. We would highly recommend this lovely home.

    The pictures do not do it justice. We had a wonderful relaxing week. There was 6 of us and plenty of room. The kitchen was well equip and having a washing machine and tumble dryer was a bonus. Loved the hot tub, it was great to come out of the patio doors from the bedroom straight into the tub. Having the robes to put on after was great. It is a very peaceful and quite area and the views are spectacular. We ate one evening at the pub in Crackington Haven and had a really nice meal but you must book ahead. The communication with the owner was great and he responded to my text regarding the keys quickly. Great family accommodation would definitely book again.

    Highlights were the hot tub, sitting in the conservatory enjoying the sunrise of a morning, the collection of games, DVD's and books were a great added feature. Being winter we didn't get to enjoy the garden as much as we would have liked, but I can imagine in the Summer this is superb! The Coombe Barton Inn down the road was great for Sunday lunch, however, I wouldn't say this was walking distance!!!! Hell of a steep hill, possibly OK to get down, don't know how I would get back up! We will be back!

The bungalow has the best views, the hot tub was hot, the bed was super comfy (I need a new bigger bed now) the wifi never dropped a signal, everything was just superb. There's even a selection of books, DVDS & board games. We were told that if we had any issues, to telephone as there was someone close by who was looking after the bungalow, but everything was fine so we didn't need to. It makes a lovely change to see things true to life in it's description. I would definitely recommend Nans Tek to anyone and everyone!

We plan to return and hopefully walk part of the coastal route, it was far too wet and wild this time.

The property

Perfectly located for a beach holiday, or for exploring the rugged North Cornwall coastline, this beautifully-spacious bungalow is set in the small coastal village of Crackington Haven, just eight miles west of Bude.

Reviewed by Susanna Scott, the founder of BritMums and with outstanding views from the magnificent garden and distant sea views from the decked area fringed with palm trees, this wonderful holiday home offers the ideal base for a family holiday by the sea.

Arriving at Nans-Tek and entering through the slate-floor porch, you turn into the open plan living room with sitting and dining areas and a feature ornamental fireplace.

Straight on and you reach the well-equipped kitchen and utility room which will take you through to the conservatory, a wonderfully relaxing room whatever the weather.

From here you can step straight out into the splendid gardens and relax in the hot tub.

Three well-furnished bedrooms, two of which benefit from French doors leading out onto decking outside, and the bathroom, complete the accommodation.

Crackington Haven is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a perfect spot for families, with a gently sloping beach in an enclosed bay that is great for rock pools when the tide is out.

Breathtaking scenery abounds and offers stunning walks in every direction.

Why not take a walk north to Pencarrow Point and climb Cornwall's highest cliff?

The bistro cafe and family pub offers refreshment when and as required.

With so many of the area's fantastic beaches and beautiful coastal villages close by, as well as the famous seaside town of Bude only eight miles away, this really is the place for a holiday by the sea whatever the time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Boscastle 6 miles.

Crackington Haven is a charming cove near Boscastle, with a mix of rockpools, a sandy beach and good surf. There are two beach shops and cafes, which are wonderful to relax in and look out over the blue seas of the bay. Walking this section of the South West Coast Path, much of it owned by the National Trust, offers dramatic views, a host of wildflowers and an undulating terrain. Just along the coast is the quaint village of Boscastle, with gift shops, local restaurants and pubs offering good food, Cornish real ales and live entertainment by local musicians, making this an ever-popular visitor destination. The sandy beaches of Bossiney and Trebarwith Strand are within a short drive, as are the surfing beaches at Bude and Polzeath. Close at hand lies Tintagel, swathed in the legend of King Arthur, as well as several stately homes and renowned gardens, or the wide open space of Bodmin Moor, famous for its granite tors and Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.
