P45 - Craken Wartha
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
In Crackington Haven, about a mile up from the beach and pub, an 'upside down' detached house with terrific long valley views to the sea. It is one of four set back from the beach road with a little bit of garden at the rear, backing on to wooded valley meadows. It has all the benefits of modern insulation and solar panels, and is stylish and uncluttered.
Front door to hall with limestone flooring, store room (freezer) and two bedrooms – a twin, and a double (5' bed, carpeted); bathroom (suite), plus a den room with sofa, TV/DVD, toys and glazed external doors to the back decking. Utility room with washing machine, tumble drier and shower cubicle. Stairs up to open-plan living/dining/fitted kitchen (dishwasher, microwave) with granite worktops, oak floor, woodburner, iPod dock, great use of beautiful Carpenter Oak beam-work and floor-to-ceiling windows filling the room with sunlight; glazed doors open to large balcony enhancing the feeling of space and light - and fabulously serene views to the sea. Also double bedroom (5' bed) with that great view and en suite loo (washbasin). Village PO/shop, 400 yards. Arrival after 3.30pm. A lovely house at any time of year.

The West Country 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).
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.
