  • "Really enjoyed our stay at Nanstek."

    It was a great base for lots of walking and worked well to do day trips and have a lovely home from home in the evenings. Very clean, spacious, great amenities and everything that you could need. Washing machine, plastic outdoor picnicware, games and books. Loved the hot tub after a long walk! Really lovely location and lots of peaceful walks around crackington haven.

    The bungalow is very spacious and thought has gone in to providing everything you need for a great stay. Hot tub was lovely with outside shower. Beds very comfortable and clean throughout. Car is required to reach most places which are within easy reach. Bungalow had wonderful views of countryside and could watch the sunset over the sea. Thank you.

  • "Lovely little detached bungalow in a quiet residential street."

    Extremely clean and had everything we needed. Kids loved the garden and everyone loved the hot tub. Weather was mixed so the hot tub really came into its own. Short drive down to a cove and we found a few nice beaches a short drive away. Exceeded our expectations. Thank you!

  • "This cottage was fantastic, really nice décor, clean and great facilities."

    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!

  • "We have just returned from 2 weeks stay at Nans Tek."

    We had a really lovely time. 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!

  • "The bungalow was more spacious than we expected and the views from the conservatory and the hot tub were stunning."

    The large screen tv was also a hit with our children and we used the smart features to look back at the photos from each day. The walk down the valley to the beach was fantastic and added to the experience (luckily didn't have to walk back up!).

  • "Our experience of Nans-Tek far exceeded our expectations, this place is beautiful, the sun lounge had the most use, lots of reading, chatting and just gazing out of the window watching the changing weather on the landscape."

    We really enjoyed the hot tub which was very spacious for just the two of us. The kitchen was well equipped and everything felt really clean, large fridge/freezer, lovely dishwasher too! The village is really close with a lovely friendly pub with great views. Seemed close to everywhere we wanted to go, such a beautiful coast. We plan to return and hopefully walk part of the coastal route, it was far too wet and wild this time.

  • "Minor drawback was that two of our party, who have had hip/knee replacement surgery, found getting on/off the very low sofa style furniture very difficult, therefore having to sit on patio seats most of the stay."

  • "This cottage is beautifully set up for holiday makers."

    We loved our time there, the views are glorious and just sitting in the sun room with some breakfast enjoying that ambiance just made the day start well. Every comfort is catered to, down to slippers on the beds and robes in the closets . It is a great place to be for seeing Cornwall, there are many places of interest close by as well as beaches, as well as a little further afield. All in all, a wonderful vacation. We didn’t want to leave!!

  • "Modernised house with all the main facilities you would need."

    The view is great and allows an area for parents to relax away from the TV in the main lounge. Kids loved the hot tub which was used each evening after the days events and worked a treat as a behaviour control mechanism throughout the day "if you do X again you will not be going in the hottub....."

  • "This was a much needed family holiday for my little family after a very busy year so far."

    We arrived to glorious weather and peace and quiet- just what we needed! Our little boy, who is 5, absolutely loved all of the space in the garden and we found we didn't feel the need to rush out in the mornings as we were all happy relaxing at the bungalow.

  • "The house rented was even more impressive than represented on the pictures."

    In general I'm usually quite reserved when interpreting the pictures taken, since usually they point towards the best possible views in and around the house. In this case all real life views exeeded the pictures!

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.

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.
