The Old Cider Press
About the home
The Old Cider Press was formerly one of several old farm buildings, now converted into a luxury holiday cottage offering self-catering accommodation for up to 4 people. Many of the barn's original features have been retained, such as the incredible A-frames that hold up the vaulted ceiling.
Located just a couple of miles from Crackington Haven on Cornwall's dramatic Atlantic coastline, The Old Cider Press is ideally located for exploring the coastal areas including Boscastle, Bude and Padstow. It's also a great base if you plan to travel to The Eden Project, Bodmin Moor or even the South Cornwall coastline.
The conversion from barn to luxury home has been carried out meticulously. The result is a fantastic relaxing and enjoyable environment. The large living area is spacious with large comfortable sofas to spread out on. The kitchen area is well equipped and includes a ceramic hob and electric fan assisted oven. There's also a microwave, fridge and dishwasher. A dining table separates the kitchen from the living area.
There is one double rooms (4'6"/1.35m bed) and one bunk-bed room (two single beds 3'/0.90m). The bathroom has a bath with power shower.
From the front door, step out onto your own private patio area and enjoy the views towards the coast. On a clear day you can see as far as the island of Lundy some 19 miles away. The Old Cider Press shares about 1 and a half acres of land with the other converted barns. There is plenty of space to relax and for children to play.
All bedding and towels are included. You'll enjoy those special little extras such as the welcome basket and complementary toiletries. There's even a computer with free Internet connection to help you plan your stay or just keep in touch with friends and family. There's a widescreen TV with digital channels and recorder, a DVD player and a small selection of discs, even a Playstation. A telephone is provided with a small call allowance.

This was a lovely find for a relaxing week away in North Cornwall. From the moment of first contact, I was impressed with the obvious enthusiam for the area displayed by the owners and the unerring professionalism with which our booking was handled. Overall I would heartily recommend the Old Cider Press, the location was a great balance between isolated and accessable, the amenities were top notch and the welcome package was a nice addition.

The cottage was really comfortable and had everything you could expect. The service fromthe point of booking to when we left was simple and efficient. A lovely position to explore parts of North Cornwall. The hamper on arrival was excellent.

A lovely cottage with stunning scenery just a short drive away. The attention to detail in the cottage was faultless.
