The three thatched cottages are set in National Trust land in the peaceful village of Crackington Haven.

Two of them are believed to date back some 500 years and were originally one dwelling known as a Cornish 'longhouse'. The third is a charming 'Enid Blyton' type house built in the 1930s. Crackington is an unspoilt cove, flanked by magnificent cliffs which are a mass of wild flowers in the spring and early summer.

The Heritage coastal path runs by the cottages, taking the walker for as far along the coast as they can walk - with stunning views. Beyond the village the Eden Project and Padstow are only about 45 min. away.

Views across the valley and coast and incredible sunsets are just some of the pleasures enjoyed by guests staying in these cottages. If you enjoy shrimping in the rockpools, marvelling at the fascinating geology of the local rock features, playing a game of beach cricket or spending an exhilarating time in the surf, you will love your stay in Crackington.

Charming Holiday Cottages full of character - Thatchways, the Old Cottage and Pa's Cottage all have their own individual character but they are all tastefully decorated and kept in excellent condition. Each cottage has antique furniture, open beams, fitted kitchen with washing machine and fridge/freezer. Electricity is included. For kids wanting to let off steam or adults in need of a relaxing early evening drink all the cottages have the perfect retreat in their gardens which provide privacy and at the same time unrivalled views of the sun setting on the horizon.
