  • “Silver crooks was just as the photos, the hot tub and bbq area was private and the view over the fields was wonderful, comfortable bed in the room that we used well equipped kitchen and cosy sitting room.”

    Host was very friendly and easy to contact. For me the shower could do with a little more pressure and coming out of the drive could use a mirror help see what is coming on the road. Brilliant home from home.

The property

Bude 9.5 miles.

Silver Crooks is handsome, detached house resting on the outskirts of rural Holsworthy, close to the North Cornwall coast.

A comfortable retreat, this lovely family home from home enjoys a quiet location within easy reach of some of Cornwall's best beaches as well as the vast Devonshire countryside.

Enter to find an elegant dining room where you can enjoy dinner, a smart sitting room and a well equipped kitchen with pantry.

At the rear is a lovely, sunny conservatory; a good spot to start your day with a morning coffee.

Head up to three nicely furnished bedrooms with pretty cottage style fabrics and wonderful views over the surrounding countryside.

Freshen up in the shared bathroom on this floor which has a bath and a separate shower, so you can enjoy a long soak when you need a quiet moment.

Spend time in the summer months on the lovely decked patio area with barbecue and views over the surrounding fields, whilst little ones can run around on the lawn (with supervision).

Enjoy a soak in your own luxurious, six-berth Jacuzzi hot tub: the perfect way to end your day.

Guests are welcome to exercise their dog in the adjacent fields (direct access) if there is no agricultural activity taking place at the time.

Also outside you'll find a secure garage for storing bicycles, kayaks etc.

Nearby is the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve, where you can enjoy a delightful walk, or head a little further to Tamar Lakes Activity Centre at Upper Tamar Lake where a host of activities await for all ages.

For little ones a day out to The Milky Way Adventure park or The Big Sheep is a must.

For cyclists, the Tarka Trail is not far away.

Travel to Bude on the Cornish coast where you'll find dog friendly beaches, plenty of good eateries or try your hand at surfing with many surf schools happy to help you get on a board for the first time.

If you prefer calmer waters then take a dip in the Bude Sea Pool, popular for swimming and paddleboarding.

Walkers will enjoy taking in dramatic coastal landscapes from the South West Coast Path, discovering Cornwall's delightful villages and towns along the way like Crackington Haven, Boscastle, and Tintagel.

Close to beaches, countryside and lots of family friendly attractions, Silver Crooks is an excellent base for a diverse family holiday.

About the location


Bude 10 miles; Barnstaple 25 miles.

The ancient market town of Holsworthy lies nestled amid the rolling green hills of Tarka Country. There are many different landscapes within the region, from rugged cliffs and sandy beaches to rolling farmland and lush valleys. Holsworthy has much to offer, including a swimming pool, tennis court and splendid park with bowling green. The town centre boasts a varied selection of traditional shops, pubs and cafés, based around the market square. There is an 18-hole golf course just outside the town, while the local area is rich with opportunities for fishing, sailing, cycling and walking. The sandy beaches at Bude are within easy reach, while further afield visitors can explore the changing face of the South West Coastal Path, dramatic Exmoor and Dartmoor, and unspoilt Bodmin Moor, or simply relax in the quiet countryside that typifies North Devon.
