About the home
50 yards from the PO/shop at Higher Crackington, and 1¼ miles up from the beach and pub, a picture-postcard, 18th cent., semi-detached thatch and cob cottage. In front, an off-lane parking area; at the back, a pretty flower-filled enclosed suntrap garden with paved area (table/chairs).
Inside, typical thick lumpy walls, some low door lintels and ancient beams, mixed with modern comfort. Living room with huge inglenook (woodburner, TV/DVD), divided from the dining room by open beam-work; 5 stone steps up to fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer) with very old flagstone floor (once a dairy); back lobby (5'3" lintel) with washing machine, tumble drier, bathroom (suite plus bath-shower) and door to garden. From the dining area, steepish half-turn stairs (stairgate, 4'8" ceiling at top) up to three bedrooms – two double (both with access to one side of bed only), and a bunk room (2'6" beds), all with sloping ceilings and very low beams; shower-room (suite).

The West Country / Cornwall region
Cornwall's north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur's?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and 'a pair of blue eyes' nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall's prettiest villages - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).
The Bude / Crackington Haven area
Crackington Haven: cove hamlet with low-tide sand beach (dog-free), pub (good food, sea views) and café/shop, between tremendous cliffs 4 miles north of Boscastle, 11 miles south of Bude. Not spoilt. Beautiful, rugged, sea-birdwatching coast to walk. This is Hardy's 'A Pair of Blue Eyes' country. Riding/pony-trekking, lake/sea fishing, surf hire nearby.
