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


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..
