This iconic cliff top location is an absolute haven for walkers and wildlife lovers, yet within walking distance of the beach at Crackington Haven.

Property Details

This traditional cottage, next door to the iconic cliff top Church at St Gennys (don't worry no chimes!) offers a proper cottage holiday in Cornwall. Nothing can quite compare to staying so close to the coastal path (a 5 minute walk from the cottage) with majestic views made even more spectacular by the height of the cliffs in this part of Cornwall. There is also a footpath just yards from the cottage which takes you on a beautiful 15 minute walk down to the beach at Crackington Haven. If you prefer to drive to the beach, it takes just five minutes. The Owner, who lives nearby, organises nature conservation walks across the dramatic National Trust coastline surrounding the cottage.

This light, atmospheric cottage has a small garden with lawn to the rear with superb views of the sea and rugged, unspoilt cliffs to Widemouth Bay. Inside there is a lovely open plan sitting room / kitchen with traditional slate floor, wooden beamed ceiling, a large rug, lovely 3 piece suite and open fire.

Property Location


The cottage is located less than a mile from Crackington Haven, which is included in the best surfing beaches in England and was recommended by the Marine Conservation Society in its Good Beach Guide. The scenery in the beach area of the surrounding majestic cliffs is almost unrivalled. At high tide, the beach is a mass of quartz-veined pebbles and large boulders but at low tide, it reveals an expanse of sand and many rock pools. Only the road separates the sea from a couple of beach shops, two superb beach cafes and a public house with a restaurant and fantastic terrace. The cottage is located in the parish of St. Gennys, which prides itself on the excellence of its public paths with the National Trust owning most of the cliff and adjacent farmland.

As you travel down the coastline, you can visit quaint coastal villages such as Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac, the latter offering a range of fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy the freshest and most delicious fish.

Fifteen minutes up the coast is Bude, a popular tourist destination for both its surfing and fantastic family beaches in Widemouth Bay. The watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards allows for some of the best surfing in the world alongside swimming and a whole host of water-based activities. Bude today is a lovely sea-side town, the main shopping streets and inter-connecting alleyways play host to a wide range of locally owned shops, restaurants and pubs. There are boutiques, shoes, arts & crafts, jewellery, hand-made gifts and souvenirs.

Six miles inland is Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cornwall at its wildest and rich in ancient history, Bodmin Moor stretches for 30 miles through the heart of the County of Cornwall and offers spectacular walking and horse riding.

With easy access to the both the A30 and the Atlantic Highway you can quickly travel up and down the South-West to enjoy some of the larger tourist attractions that Devon and Cornwall have to offer.

Perfect escapism in a beautiful cottage

We had a wonderful week in Barton Cottage. The cottage is in a breathtaking location and has a homely feel with every comfort provided. It is only a stoneA?s throw from the coast path and you can walk down to Crackington Haven in no time at all - a lovely beach with a great cafe. St Gennys church is beautiful with amazing views of the coast. There are so many lovely places to visit nearby: Bude, Boscastle, Tintagel to name but a few. Francis, the owner, is very helpful. We are looking forward to returning soon.

Lovely autumn break at Barton Cottage, St Gennys,Cornwall.

We recently had two weeks perfect holiday at Barton Cottage in the most beautiful and peaceful situation just a ten minute drive from the nearest beach Crackington Haven or a 30 minute walk along the coast path down to the beach. The cottage is a very comfy character home with everything you need for a lovely holiday. The surrounding area is stunning fabulous beaches for surfing and swimming and dog walking and beautiful coastal walks. Hopefully we will be back with our dog for another lovely holiday next year.

An idyllic location

We loved staying at Barton with our dog as the location is exceptional for a quiet break. Amazing walking right on the doorstop, a half hour walk to a little town with a gorgous beach (safe for swimming or surfing), pub, cafe, shop. We didnt need to get in the car the whole time we were there.

An all round lovely holiday

Barton Cottage is in a great location, with a sea view from the back bedroom. The cottage was comfortable and quite cool in the hot weather. The kitchen is well equipped. The garden is enclosed which was great for our little dog. The coastal path is almost opposite the cottage. The nearest pub is in Crackington Haven which is a 5 minute drive away, which also has a couple of cafes. The owner Francis is very pleasant & helpful. I would recommend this cottage & would happily book again.

Barton Cottage excellent value

Barton Cottage was situated in lovely quiet location, with coastal walk just a few steps away. Lovely clean well kept cottage and the owner Francis Crocker was helpful and respectful of our privacy. We had our own private gated garden back and front and the cottage was well equipped although could have done with a full length mirror but certainly didn't spoil our stay by not having one. Kitchen equipment even had washing machine/dryer and bedding was of good quality and comfortable. Beautiful sea views from bedroom window. Good base for Crackington Haven with amazing pub and great food, Bude was 8 miles away and Wadebridge about half hour. Widemouth Bay local too. Would recommend coastal walk,breathtaking scenery . Lovely little church St Gennys Lovely old church just a few steps away.

A beautiful quiet location

Barton Cottage was exactly what we were looking for: quiet and comfortable, in a beautiful location very close to the sea. We'd come to canoe, swim and walk and it was perfect for all three. Crackington Haven - a wonderful swimming beach - is an easy walk down the coast path (a bit of a puff back up, but fine) and in the first week of June it was sunny and peaceful there too. We cooked in most nights and though the kitchen is small, it's well equipped. We ate outside whenever we could and watched the swallows dipping into the little barn area beside us: this really is a wonderful place to recharge your batteries.

Barton Cottage

Barton Cottage is a lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Being outside the main village, it is wonderfully quiet and peaceful with views of the sea. It is easily walkable to the beach at Crackington Haven - even with two small children - with the reward of a drink in the pub/ ice cream from the cafe when you get there. The cottage was very cosy and comfortable. We had a wonderful time.

A little sanctuary!

Perfect spot for travelling out a very short distance to some fabulous places on the coast. Walks on the doorstep - quite steep, but worth it for the views. With a log fire we were so cosy we even bought a toasting fork too.(We had a blizzard:Bitterley cold wind and then got sunburnt! ) No mobile in cottage due to walls, but dine outside. Our host can't so enough for you. We had a lovely relaxing holiday.

We enjoyed our stay at Barton Cottage tremendously. It provided us with an excellent base for local walks along the coast and touring the North Cornwall area in general. The owner of the property, who met us on our arrival, was polite, friendly and ready and willing to answer any questions we had regarding the property and the surrounding area.
