Property Location


The house is located about half a mile from the beach at 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 beach is surrounded by majestic cliffs providing a spectacular backdrop and it is one of Cornwall's most dramatic locations. 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.

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 there is a fantastic family beach in nearby Widemouth Bay. The watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards allows for some of the best surfing in the world alongside kite-surfing, 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.

Fantastic cottage, stunning location and views

The cottage was beautifully decorated and extremely well kitted out. It is in a great location - walking distance to the beach and to the coastal path. We would recommend it to anyone as a great place to holiday. We are a family of three.

Third stay

This was our 3rd time in this wonderful cottage, first time in the winter. It is really cozy and as lovely as in the summer when the garden and outdoor space is a bonus. The location is wonderful and we really enjoy the local pub which is very welcoming and has lovely views. We also really like the seclusion, not overlooked at all and no extraneous noise. The really throughtful owners left us a bottle of champagne as it was our wedding anniversary - a typically warm touch. I could not recommend this cottage more highly.

Great location, needs a deep clean and more comfortable furniture

The ladder in the bedroom needs fixing to the bed, it is unsafe and my children nearly fell backwards a number of times when getting in or out of the bed, despite us highlighting the danger. The property needs a deep clean, it was full of old cobwebs, spiders, flies and woodlice (woodlice dropped from the beam onto the food preparation area in the kitchen daily). The sofa and chair where dirty, tired, uncomfortable and need replacing. The beds were uncomfortable as well. I am highlighting these areas as they are easily rectified but need addressing. Despite the above we thoroughly enjoyed our stay as the property is in an excellent location and an added bonus for us were the various parts of the garden which the children loved exploring and playing in. One further point to note is the lane which gives access to the property which is overgrown and has scratched our car on both sides.

From the Owner:
I am glad our guests enjoyed Lambs Barton Cottage and it's location, it is very special. I would like to clarify a few points on the comments they have made. Firstly the ladder, there are two bolts at the point where the ladder meets the bed with the relevant fixing on the ladder, by securing these the ladder cannot be moved. These have been in place since the time of building the bed a few years ago. The cottage had a full deep clean last month with a full clean every Friday change over, due to our countryside location we do have our fair share of spiders and insects, we remove the cobwebs but the spiders are pretty speedy at replacing them. I will see where the woodlice have come from but in a barn we do expect a few. The chair had a brand new cover made for it a few months ago, last month it was in tip top condition so I will have to review what has happened in the meantime. We recently found some marks and wear and tear on the sofa and this will be addressed next month. Beds are a difficult one as we prefer a firm mattress and have many positive comments on how comfortable the beds are, the mattresses are top quality and hand made. I will of course look into this and what has happened over the last month. As regards the lane, this is a public highway and not owned by us but we are part of a community group who pay to have our hedges cut back four times a year, the current cut will be at the end of this month when all community members will also have their hedges cut, there are many small lanes in the Parish. The lane from the top of the hill down to our entrance is owned by the farmer above us, he does not want his hedges cut until end of season to preserve the wildlife and we cannot interfere with his land.

Stylish and very private cottage with great views over hills and sea

A mainly sunny week for two before Easter, we had a lovely time in the cottage. The photos are accurate and the place is stylish and comfortable. The views are great and the cottage has large picture windows to make the most of them. Approached via a very steep and narrow lane (yes, it really is down there...you will initially doubt it) the cottage is very private, with a long drive and a sunny rear terrace. It is perched immediately above the road to Crackington Haven (1/2 mile to the beach) but it wasn't busy and we did not find the traffic noisy at all. You just have horses in the field behind the cottage and we had a visit from a Peacock! . The only niggles were lack/rationing of consumables provided- e.g. only 1 loo roll provided, just 3 dishwasher tablets and no washing up liquid which was surprising. We would definitely revisit, but will come armed with loo rolls...

From the Owner:
Thanks for your review and we are glad you had a wonderful time at Lambs Barton Cottage. It is worthwhile pointing out that all our properties are self catering and whilst some essential items might be supplied out of courtesy, self catering does mean that guests should provide their own food and catering items for their stay. Everybody uses different amounts during the week, so owners normally a standard number of items.

Fantastic cottage

We had a great week staying at Lambs Barton. It is in the most perfect location set in beautiful countryside and yet only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The facilities in the cottage are great and include a wonderful hot outside shower to wash off after the beach. We would thoroughly recommend a stay there.

A beautiful cottage in a stunning location!

This is a beautifully decorated/furnished/equipped cottage in a stunning location. My family and I (2 adults and twin boys age 10 years) stayed for 2 weeks in July/August 2015 and felt very much at home. The cottage was very well presented and clean on arrival and was cleaned again and bed linen changed mid-way through our stay. As a keen cook I found the kitchen to be exceptionally equipped - especially for a holiday home. We absolutely loved the views and enjoyed playing petanque in the afternoons whilst enjoying a glass of wine on the sun terrace. The walk down to the beach is steep, but this made for good exercise back up to the cottage after a lovely dinner at the Coombe Barton Inn. Would highly recommend and hope to return one day!

We had a brilliant time.

We had a brilliant time and would consider staying at Lambs Barton Cottage again. We found the beds very comfy and loved the shower, indoors and out. We struggled with the table, as its very high and if we put cushions on the chair for our daughter, there was nowhere for her knees to go, so on day 3, we ended up eating at the window sill, still with no knee space, but less precarious. I didn't manage to find the oven instructions, I got the oven to work once, but couldn't work it out again. A bigger saucepan would be nice and a dustpan and brush with broom for inside. It would save using the vacuum cleaner, we were worried about marking the tiles. We loved the views and the space. We had a very relaxing time. Thank you.

Review of lambs Barton

Lambs Barton is a beautiful property that provided a great base to stay in North Cornwall . The house is gorgeous inside and furnished to a very high standard, with lovely outside space and even a sea view. It is quite tucked away and initially was a bit hard to find but this offers you great peace and quiet and privacy. You can walk to the nearest beach and a pub in 10 minutes but is a steep hill so takes longer on the return! We had a great holiday and could happily have stayed longer. Only very slight criticism is that we were there two weeks and there was no visit during this time to provide fresh towels or bedding. Would recommend and be happy to stay there again.

A really wonderful place!!!

Lambs Barton Cottage is a very quiet, cosy and wonderful place with a magnificent view. The countryside simple is great. We love it!!! But, in my opinion the housekeeping might be better. Personal short introduction would be helpful.

From the Owner:
Dear Nicole, We are very happy to hear that you loved our family cottage and the surrounding countryside. Please accept our apologies that you felt the housekeeping was not up to scratch, we take this very seriously as we are very proud of Lambs Barton Cottage. We have addressed this issue with the housekeeper. We hope that you will return again. Kind regards, Jill and John Mellor
