Inside Story

Filled with light, the interior has a New England vibe with neutral hues and a relaxed style.

Gather in the vast ground floor open plan kitchen/dining/living room to catch up with family and friends. In summer, two sets of French windows let the sunshine in whilst in winter the ultra-modern wood burner takes centre stage. The first floor sitting room is the place to chill out with a book, catch a film or simply to admire the stunning views. A little TV snug off the living space provides a spot for kids games with an Xbox, Nintendo Wii, bean bags and books.
There are two master bedroom suites, one on the first floor and one on the ground floor. A further two twins, both with the option to zip and link to super kings make for flexible sleeping arrangements. Two shower rooms and a family bathroom complete the picture inside.

Outdoor Living

Behind the house is a wide sun terrace with table and chairs for ten and a barbecue. A few steps drop down to a good sized enclosed lawn, making it ideal for children and pets. There is a further raised deck overlooking the rolling countryside beyond. There is a further lawn area at the front and ample parking for several cars.

There is also a big shed for storing surf boards, kayaks, wet suits and bikes.

Out and About

The house is opposite the Crackington Village stores which sells a good range of basics including Cornish pasties, wine and beer! Just a mile away, Crackington Haven is home to a good Pub – The Combe Barton Inn which serves food plus two cafés.

The unspoiled cove has a sandy beach which is lifeguarded in the summer months and is a good spot for swimming, surfing and rock pooling. Dogs are welcome on the beach out of season but in the summer months head for Blackrock beach on the way to Bude.
A few miles to the east is Bude, a real holiday seaside town with beautiful beaches and some good eateries. Picturesque Boscastle is definitely worth a visit too, with a stunning harbour and a really good pub – The Napolean. The dramatic castle on the coast at Tintagel is slightly further west. For a quintessential Cornish fishing village, Port Isaac cannot be beaten, but be careful, the lanes are very narrow!
The area is a walker’s paradise and it would be a shame to miss out on some of the sights from the coastal path, although not for the faint hearted in this part of the county, some of the cliff top vistas are incredible.
For more sedate activity, hire a bike or head out on foot along The Camel Trail which links Padstow with Wadebridge and Bodmin or perhaps book a tour of the Camel Valley Vineyard to sample the award winning wines.
