    As I'm disabled, although only been for 5 years, this was the first time we had been away since I have had to use wheelchair or mobility scooter, getting around in Peot,s Retreat was really easy, plenty room, large bathroom with bath, second bathroom with walkin shower with stool for sitting while showering, the outside area's both have the most amazing views, for anyone disabled the top area is much easier to access, both have lovely seating areas, the area that Peot's Retreat is situated is a very quite residential area, so quite that you hear the cows and sheep in the fields quite away across from Peot's Retreat, The lounge area is wonderful to relax in and still take in the views though the double patio doors, we went away with my daughter and her partner, who on two occasions went out along, which was fine, as we had all the facilities we would have at home and more. The weather was lovely, sunny everyday but one, which again made it a wonderful break. The only negative I have is that the places we visited together wasn't fully disabled friendly, expect for the marine time museum in Falmouth, which was the best and easiest place to move around on my mobility scooter. Two place we visited while out for a day in which we intended to eat and had booked previously before leaving home, also checked and made it very clear that one of the party was disabled in a wheelchair, but who assured us that it be no problem accomadating me,the first was booked for afternoon tea which was to celebrate my birthday that day, on contacting the venue which was the Beach at Bude Hotel, I asked about parking, steps, disabled toilets, seating, was informed parking available directly outside, only three small steps, no problem with toilets or access to tables. On arrival parking outside was on the road, one side, which was a no though road, which accomadated approximately 10 vehicles which was full, car park isn't close, it's the beach car park below the cliffs from the hotel, which we had to park, but wouldn't be able to use either my wheelchair or scooter as the only way up was a very steep climb on a path around the cliffs, or a steep road, this meant I had to be dropped off by the hotel, then wait for my husband and daughter, and her partner to walk up after parking the car in the car park, on arriving outside the other with wheelchair there were four quite steep steps to the outside seating area which also lead into the main eating area, my wheelchair had to be carried up, I had to try to climb the steps, which is extremely painfull for me, then to top it all, they hadn't registered our booking, which was very disappointing, the manager did apologise, also offered to book for another date, but this was for a birthday on that day, by the time we left with nothing to eat, as we were informed the chef wouldn't be able to accommodate an afternoon tea at this short notice, we hadn't eaten and it was now 3.30pm, we then had to get me down these steps, then wait for my husband again to walk down to get the car, we did learn that it had been booked for Sunday, when I had a copy of the emails showing the confirmation of the date. The second place was The Jarmacian Inn, again we did the same enquirers, booked table for dinner in restaurant at 6 pm, called again on the day to make sure regarding disabled access, on arrival car park fine, using wheelchair, we headed for the front of Pub/Hotel, museum and shop, museum couldn't accomadated me at all to small for wheelchair, as well as both shops, the bar/ restaurant enterence was over large cobbled area, which either my chair had to be pulled or I had to try and walk with help, my husband went to check the booking, only to be informed that they are not able to get a wheelchair into the main restaurant area as there are two large wooden steps, the only way was they would have to lay down large boards over this area, or we can sit in the bar to eat, we ended up in the bar, to top it off, the only toilets were situated in the hotel part which again was a long walk from the bar, but no disabled. I understand these were just to places out of many in Cornwall, but don't state your can accommodate disabled if you not able to, Saying that we didn't let it spoil our holiday at all, we all had a wonderful time, and the accomadating was perfect. Thanking you, hope to book with you again.

The property

A detached, single-storey cottage with sea views and full wheelchair access in the village of Crackington Haven, on the North Cornwall coastline near Bude.

In a small residential close, this Crackington Haven cottage offers a quiet retreat for families and is suitably-equipped for wheelchair users, with wide doorways, laminate flooring throughout, an impressive sitting room, Sky+ TV, and wide doors leading to a raised decked area with sea views.

The kitchen of this Crackington Haven cottage also has sea views and a TV, plus plenty of space for the family to dine together.

The bedrooms at this Crackington cottage are spacious with TVs and their arrangement is very much geared to a large family; one is a king-size double with an en-suite, one is a super king-size double, one is a single and one has an adult cot bed, plus a single, making it suitable for a disabled person plus a carer.

The shower room has a walk-in shower and emergency call button, while the bathroom has an assisted bath which can be electrically raised and lowered to whatever height is most convenient.

As well as the decked veranda, there is a lawn at the rear of this Crackington Haven cottage, where the family can admire the sea views.

Crackington Haven is one of the most spectacular coves along this stretch of North Cornwall’s coast and has two cafés, ideal for sitting, relaxing and watching the dramatic waves roll onto the beach.

For walkers, the coast path near Crackington offers a challenging climb with fantastic views from the clifftops.

Bude, just a short drive up the coast, offers miles of sandy beach, a wide selection of activities and is very safe for families, being lifeguarded in the main summer season.

Much of the coastline in this area is owned by the National Trust and is a haven for wildlife, bursting with wild flowers along the cliffs.

This spacious Crackington Haven cottage is perfect for family holidays on the spectacular Cornish coast.

About the location

CRACKINGTON HAVEN

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.
