Tucked away in a secret little cluster of cottages beside the ancient church of St Gennys in the most amazing cliff top location. Church Cottage is quite delightful and will provide a relaxing retreat at any time of year.

Property Details

The views from magical Church Cottage are simply breathtaking! From the lovely little garden in the front of this romantic detached cottage, guests can admire the panorama across fields and clifftops to Widemouth Bay and, on a clear day, Lundy Island. Tucked away in a secret little cluster of cottages beside the ancient church of St Gennys, Church Cottage is quite delightful and will provide a relaxing retreat at any time of year. A path winds down from the parking area past the neighbouring cottages and fields to the little picket fence and enclosed garden where guests can enjoy the fresh air and amazing scenery. The cottage has reversed accommodation with pretty bedrooms downstairs, and the compact open plan living room above. A stable door to the staircase acts as a stair-gate.

The seaside hamlet of Crackington Haven with its pub and friendly cafes is within walking distance down the hill. Nothing can quite compare to staying so close to the coastal path (a 15 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. Set in such an unforgettable location, Church Cottage will tempt guests to return time after time. The Owner, who lives nearby, organises nature conservation walks across the dramatic National Trust coastline surrounding the cottage.

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.

Twenty 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.

Two Weeks of Peace

Beautiful location overlooking an old Church and the Atlantic Ocean. Very relaxing break in Church Cottage. A great location for long walks with the Dog and a comfortable Cottage with bags of character to relax in the Evenings. The owner does a great job of making it a Home from Home. Would highly recommend if you need to chill out for a while. Thanks Francis and Cornwall Cottages.

Lovely cottage with a fantastic view!

Great cottage all round. The view out of the front door over the cliffs and sea in the distance was fantastic whatever the weather. The private garden was great for the dog and gave us the privacy to sit and admire the view. The property manager was extremely helpful but not intrusive. Great location for walking with coastal path 5 mins amble away. Would recommend to everyone.

Church view cottage - loved every minute there

We wanted a quiet hideaway for a break after getting married this was perfect. The host Frances was about everyday, although not intruding in our holiday he checked we were enjoying our holiday and if we needed anything we could call. Lovely neighbours too. It was effect for walking the coast or driving to other places. With bude nearby too. The cottage itself is a proper old cottage with a perfect view of St Gennys church and the sea. The cottage is upside down so as to enjoy your view oh and your own garden to relax in. Can you tell we loved it there

Great base for walking the cliff paths

This was our second stay in Church Cottage. It's so nice to be able to walk out of the front door, cross a couple of fields, and be on the coast path along the cliff tops. The cottage is compact but well supplied with kitchen equipment, and has board games, DVDs, books and jigsaws in case of bad weather. There is Wi-Fi and mobile phone reception for some networks. The bedrooms are downstairs, and the beds are very comfortable. If you don't fancy cooking, there is good pub food a short drive away, though sadly the Trevigue restaurant wasn't open this summer (2018).

Nice cottage in lovely location with amazing sea views

Perfect for walking the South West Coast path and access to nearby Bude, Boscastle and Tintagel. Crackington Haven beach is also lovely and can be reached via the cliff path. Church Cottage is amongst group of around 6 other cottages, but has private garden and is not overlooked and you have views over the fields and church spires to the cliffs and sea. Francis was very attentive and even brought a BBQ over! Only negative (perhaps a positive for some...) is that the Wifi signal is patchy). We had a great week at Church Cottage

A lovely little place with a gorgeous view.

A Lovely little place to stay with Crackington Haven just a short distance away. The friendly owner was there to meet us, and was more than happy to help if we were to have any problems. The lounge / kitchen is well laid out with comfy furniture and everything you need if you are planing to cook your own meals. The lounge leads out to the garden area, it has a very good view of the coast and out to sea, where on a good day you can sea Lundy Island. The bathroom is exceptionally special, as all four of it's walls have been hand painted to look like the sea, complete with little yachts and crashing waves! The bedrooms are downstairs so are nice and cool if you have to sleep on a hot night. There is plenty to see and do in the area, one of the best attractions we visited was the Tamar Otter and Wildlife Sanctuary. If you enjoy walking then the coastal path is just a few yards away, I took a short walk with my camera and got some great shots of the stunning landscape! We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to others!

Nice but not quite as good as we had hoped

The cottage is charming and the views are amazing. It is let down however by a poor heating system and the bedrooms (downstairs) are a bit dark and damp. The bed in the main bedroom is small and linen not high quality. Having said all of that we ejoyed staying at the cottage and exploring the surrounding areas. The walks are many and scenic and the pub at Crackington Haven is very pleasant. For the price charged however we were expecting a slightly higher standard.

From the Owner:
Many thanks for submitting your review; all points "have been taken on board". I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is true that the double bed is a 4 foot 6 inch bed, but due to the layout of the 200 year old barn conversion it it the largest size bed that can sensibly fit into the room. I trust that you slept well on the high quality pocket sprung mattresses. Since your comment on the lack of heating, I have had a plumber/electrician make sure that the thermostats and radiators are working efficiently so the bedrooms are warm and comfortable. I would also like to add that before the arrival of new guests the cottage is thoroughly cleaned by 2 cleaners, and then inspected by myself to ensure that it is spotless. The cottage is exactly the same as in the pictures on the website.
