The Old Cider House

Holiday Cottage in Crackington Haven

Sleeps 2 - Bedrooms 1 - From £413

WiFi
Open fire / woodburner
Parking available
Cot available
Highchair available
Garden
Golf Course nearby
Saturday change over
In a quite beautiful and peaceful spot, close to some of the most spectacular sections of Cornwalls north coast, The Old Cider House is a luxurious conversion providing spacious accommodation for a couple with the added advantage of a lovely private garden.

Property Details

Located next door to the owner's farmhouse, this delightful conversion has just been completed and offers a truly peaceful place to stay in the North Cornwall area. It is a real treat for couples seeking romantic heaven. A spacious living room is made extra cosy by a traditional log burner sitting in the large inglenook fireplace and the sumptuous leather sofas. Upstairs the beautifully presented bedroom has french windows opening to a charming Juliet balcony from which guests will be treated to bird song from the neighbouring orchard. Outside you can enjoy a morning coffee on the patio or sunbathe in the private south facing garden. The Old Cider House is definitely a place to relax, unwind and revive the spirits.

This stunning part of north Cornwall will delight visitors seeking an area of historical interest, beautiful scenery, spectacular walks and a warm Cornish welcome. The famous villages of Boscastle and Port Isaac are both within a short drive and there is nowhere more historic in Cornwall than Tintagel for those fascinated by Arthurian legends. Sandy beaches at Crackington and nearby Widemouth Bay are both great for surfing, but if you fancy a great escape, try the Strangles beach, often quiet even in the height of summer because of a steep path down the cliff. This area is a walker's paradise with some of the most dramatic (and challenging) sections of the south west coastal path from Port Isaac all the way up to Widemouth. Alternatively the wilds of Bodmin Moor are not too distant where you can scale the famous tors of Roughtor or Cornwall's highest point, Brown Willy.

Accommodation
Ground Floor: The beautiful stable door opens into the spacious living room with leather sofas, inglenook fireplace and dining table with lovely wood flooring. A fully fitted kitchen looks out over the garden and the rolling fields beyond.
First Floor: Upstairs is the delightful double bedroom with 5' double bed, pastel bed linen and large wardrobes. The gorgeous french windows open to the Juliet balcony and the skylights mean this is a light and airy bedroom in the warmer months, but with the open stairs and a roaring wood-burner, a gorgeous cosy place in winter. A well fitted bathroom adjoins with a bath and over bath shower.
Exterior: A small patio is available immediately to the outside of the front door and the garden extends around the house. There is an outside table and a BBQ is available.

Facilities & Services
Heating is via an air source heat pump and the wood burning stove. The kitchen has a range of modern equipment. There is an electric oven and hob, a microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge with freezer compartment and dishwasher. The sitting room has a flat screen digital TV & SMART Blue-ray DVD player with Netflix, a CD & Radio. There is Superfast Wi-Fi at the property. There is an iron & ironing board.

Miscellaneous
Electricity, heating, bed linen & towels are all included but you will need to provide your own beach towels. All wood is provided free of charge for the woodburner. Parking facilities are available for up to 2 vehicles. Regrettably no smoking or dogs are allowed. There is a cot & high chair available upon request.

Short breaks are available during quieter periods.
£200 pre-authorised to your credit or debit card as a security deposit is required.

Property Location


Between Bodmin and Bude, Crackington Haven lies a few miles from Boscastle and boasts a spectacular beach with some of the best surf in the county. A popular pub, a couple of charming tea rooms and a lovely woodland and coastal walk are also excellent reasons for a visit. Crackington Haven is on one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline in North Cornwall. The village itself is located in a very narrow valley with steep sides leading to a beach where beautiful sand is exposed at low tide. The beach is popular with surfers and the surrounding coastline is a huge draw for walkers. The cliffs are not only dramatic, but are also geologically fascinating. Immediately north of the beach is Pencarrow Point and a few hundred yards south is Cambeak headland. One mile south of Crackington Haven, High Cliff rises to 735 feet (224 m) with a sheer drop to the rocky foreshore. The surrounding area has beautiful countryside and nearby Bude has a full range of shops, pubs & restaurants. There are a whole range of beaches within a few miles drive along the coast as well. The landscape rises dramatically to the south onto the moors with more superb walking to be had - it really is a lovely place to visit and explore!

Boscastle is one of the most picturesque villages in Cornwall, with a tiny natural port and coastal paths passing through superb unspoilt countryside, much of it owned by the National Trust. Browse the shops and enjoy some refreshment at one of many charming cafes in the village. Boscastle, situated on rugged North Coast of Cornwall, has an incredibly picturesque tiny natural port. Once a thriving port at the base of a ravine serving North Cornwall, the village now survives on its tourism industry. Unfortunately, the disastrous floods of 2004 damaged some historic properties, but Boscastle is most definitely up and running again now. The Witchcraft Museum, which re-opened in 2005, houses an extensive collection of related artefacts including a Dutch collection donated to the museum in 2000. There are many gift shops and cafe's in the village, as well as a pottery, with amazing coastal walks and views to each side of the valley. On the north side of the harbour at Penally Point is a natural blow hole, which at low tides with enough swell sends plumes of water high into the air. There is a fabulous 7 mile walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven which is extremely popular, although it is quite a testing length of coastline. Many sites of interest surround Boscastle with lots to explore. Nearby Tintagel and a ruined castle heralds myths of King Arthur, with Camelford rumoured to be Camelot of old.

Widemouth Bay is a varied and interesting beach with a long open bay. At the northerly end of Widemouth there is a large sandy area that becomes more exposed as the tide drops and to either side of this the sand gives way to some fantastic rock formations. The beach is ideal for families, whether you wish to swim, sunbathe, surf or hunt for marine life in the hundreds of rock pools. Lifeguards are present during the season. These are some of the best beaches in Cornwall so don't miss the chance to try your surfing or 'boogie' boarding skils. There are a number of surf schools in the area. For Walkers and Cyclists the area is full of superb routes and Bude lies at the centre of the most dramatic stretch of the South West coastal footpath. There are numerous local villages and landmarks to explore and much of the area ia a nature lovers paradise.

Bude is a popular resort for families and surfers, boasting spectacular sandy beaches and some of the best waves in the county. The town, located close to the border with Devon, is filled with shops, restaurants, pubs and even a local theatre. Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches of Bude are quite beautiful. There is a huge amount of bird life for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful walks along the cliff tops. Along the coast is Sandy Mouth which is ideal for families due to its lovely sand and numerous rock pools. Morwenstow, which is a little further towards Devon is just south of Henna Cliff. The cliff is the highest in Cornwall and has a sheer drop down to the sea. From here you can see across to South Wales. The centre of Bude has a theatre, concerts, dances and fetes, as well as other events throughout the season. There is a new Visitors Centre in the Crescent car park which has an extensive display by the North Cornwall Heritage Coast and Countryside Service including a children's area. There is a weekly Cornish Furry Dance and an annual Carnival Week. Bude is also home to a popular jazz festival which takes place every year in August.

Cornwall welcome at it’s best
Reviewed on 15/07/2021

The Old Cider House is maintained to a very high standard. The furnishings and inventory were also of a high standard. Both owners, Sam and Jon, are extremely proud of their home. The grounds are informal but extremely pleasing to the eye. The gardens have an abundance of flowers native to England. Sam is a natural garden and will take cuttings or seeds to improve from year to year. The owners live next door to the accommodation and although they are there in case of issues they leave you to enjoy your holiday. Jon manages his own cider business. He has an orchard where he collects and selects his apples ready for the press and the full process of making the cider. He is more than delighted to show you around and to give you a taste of the finished product. You can then purchase some cider if want. We had an enjoyable week and would recommend to our friends. In our opinion it is not ideal for people with mobility issues who want to walk around the area, however, if you want to just sit outside and enjoy the large garden then it is ideal. Thank you Sam and Jon for for welcome and for looking after us so well. Hope to see you again in the future.

Our delayed Honeymoon
Reviewed on 01/07/2021

We were due to stay at The Old Cider House for our honeymoon in June 2020 but, due to the COVID lockdown we were unable to get married or have our honeymoon! We did however, get married in July and decided to book The Old Cider for June this year. On arriving, we were very impressed with the location and the inviting surroundings of the cottage. The cottage is immaculate and cosy. It caters for absolutely everything you might need during your stay. It was a long overdue, relaxing honeymoon and exceeded our expectations. ThereA?s so much to see, visit and explore in Cornwall but it was equally lovely to kick back and relax in the beautiful garden - thereA?s even cider tasting! Sam and Jon are excellent hosts. We couldnA?t recommend this cottage highly enough!

What a lovely cottage. Located in beautiful countryside. Short drive to fantastic beach. The cottage was very well presented with stylish interior. Large spaceous rooms; woodburner in lounge, comfy settees. Well equipped kitchen with great views of the south facing garden Plenty of cupboard space. The bedroom was large and spaceous and very tastefully decorated.The Juliet balcony was a lovely feature. Plenty of drawers and hanging space. Bathroom was a little small but had everything. Good "L" shaped bath and overhead powerful shower. Plenty of towels. The grounds were beautiful, large well kept colourful flower beds and squirrels chasing each other through the tree tops. Very peaceful and plenty of bird song. The location was great, Short drive to local beach which was never crowded. Good facilities (two cafe's and a pub plus toilets). Can recommend the Cream Tea at the Haven Cafe. The beach cafe has barbecues on Sundays and Thursdays which were always popular. The property was well situated for exploring the area (Bude, Padstow, Newquay and all the spectacular sandy beaches). Overall our stay was wonderful and our hosts very welcoming. Would recommend.

This was our second visit to the wonderful Old Cider House. It is such a comfortable place to be and so convenient for walking and exploring the area whatever the weather! This was our first visit to the area in Spring and the wild flowers were stunning. In addition to walking, we visited Docton Mill near Hartland - it was a delightful garden tucked away in a pretty valley and well worth a visit. Sam and Jon are perfect hosts and the house is very difficult to leave. Will we return? Most probably!

Sam and Jon are perfect hosts. The Old Cider House was fantastic, every detail had been considered. We were so sad to leave. We did some fantastic walks straight from the doorstep; the most stunning was from Crackington Haven to Boscastle. It was also a perfect base to access other areas too. Such cozy evenings by the fire and when the weather was actually kind to us in fleeting moments the gardens are completely stunning. The photos donA?t do it justice! If youA?re lucky you may even get a visit from Morris the cat too! Stunning place and would love to return! Thank you Sam and Jon for the most amazing adventure - we also happened to get engaged while we were there and couldnA?t have asked to be in a better location!

Our 4th stay at this peaceful haven, tucked away in the beautiful countryside with great access to Cornwall and Devon. The sea is minutes away and you can get out and about easily. However, like us, if you just want to chill and relax with a cuppa or glass of wine, this is the place for you. There is a great kitchen, with a good choice of cooking utensils, comfortable sofas with a big TV with Netflix etc. The cottage is clean, light and warm and Sam and Jon are close by to help out if you have any problem or to supply some very amazing Cider (Try the Vintage) from their side business the Crackington Cider Co.

Many thanks, Sam & Jon ( for the flagon of cider, cake & biscuits ! ) The property gives total peace and quiet in a superb location less than 1 mile from Crackington Haven & St Genny's.

This is the sort of place where you open the door and smile because it is so nice. It's very comfortable and spacious and well appointed. More importantly it just 'feels good'. Jon welcomed us and was very friendly, encouraging us to explore the large orchard. The location is very good for walking the SWCP.. Crackington itself has a couple of cafes and a great pub which serves a good selection of local real ales. The food is good and reasonably priced - you need to book early to get the best tables looking towards the sea. We returned home wonderfully refreshed and with big smiles.

As there was adverse weather approaching we contacted Jon and Sam to see if we could arrive early and they said that was no problem, they met us on arrival and helped with the luggage as the snow was falling rather heavily, it was warm and snug and perfectly appointed. They checked the next day to make sure we had everything we needed. A perfect short break stay and will definitely go back.

So good I have stayed twice already....and will be back!
Reviewed on 06/03/2018

I first stayed at The Cider House Jan 2017 and have just returned from my second stay. I cannot thank Jon and Sam enough for their hospitality and all the lovely treats. This cottage is perfect for a single traveller, or couple, with own transport. There are many beautiful walks locally, and the owners have kindly provided plenty of maps for your use, but you should appreciate that the landscape can be extreme so inclines are suited to mountain goats :o) The cottage is beautiful, with a fantastic log burner and two large leather sofas, a fully equipped kitchen overlooking the most wonderful countryside, and a lovely bedroom with velum windows offering night-time stargazing. Jon and Sam gladly offer an endless supply of logs for the fire and they also generously supply luxury bathroom products, local Cornish butter, eggs, bread and milk on arrival ( these may be subject to change I guess) and a bottle of bubbles....bliss! Fresh daffodils on the kitchen windowsill were a lovely gesture, but also having tea, coffee, salt and pepper grinders and washing up/ dishwasher provisions all make for a very easy and comfortable stay. You can walk from the cottage down to Crackington Haven or drive to many of the amazing North Cornwall/ South Devon beauty spots e.g. Port Isaac, Tintagel, Boscastle, Padstow, Bude, Widemouth Bay etc. Highly recommended....don't take my word for it....go and see for yourselves! Failing booking, or as well as, you might like to see if you can source Crackington Cider which Jon and Sam now produce using heritage apples grown in the orchards now establishing around the cottage. Enjoy!

Fantastic rural cottage on the splendid North Coast of Cornwall
Reviewed on 10/01/2018

Great start to the New Year! Loved the log burner and the style of the cottage. Both the exterior and interior is aesthetically pleasing to the eye and situated in a peaceful location. The surrounding area has some lovely spots with the beach not so far away, and a decent local for real ale and good food! I would recommend staying here if you need to escape for a few days!

A cosy home-from-home. Loved the seaside decor, the wood burner and the view from the kitchen window. Nice touch with the Christmas tree and lights around the fireplace to make the place feel festive. Best of luck with the new cider making venture.

Private, Peaceful, Tranquil
Reviewed on 10/12/2017

The title of our review says it all. We could not have wished for a better place to relax and escape the maddening crowd. Sam and Jon were excellent hosts and were there if we needed them. The place was spotless and very tastefully decorated with a perfect blend of modern decor and country cottage charm. It felt brand new. This review may seem like a clichA(C) but we have experienced so many holidays where we have not had these things despite them being promised in the advertisement. We will definitely be returning in 2018.

One of the best cottages weA?ve stayed in. Cosy, relaxing, totally quiet, private but with lovely Jon & Sam on hand if needed. They have done an incredible job on the restoration of the barn. A couple of shops and nice pub nearby, cliff walks (strenuous in this section!) and easy reach of Port Isaac, Padstow etc.

The Old Cider House
Reviewed on 19/09/2017

This was a wonderful farm cottage. Very private and quite in a lovely area of Cornwall. It was ideal for a restful holiday. The cottage was well presented and was very clean. The owners were very friendly and helpful, even leaving some supplies to get us going. The cottage was warm and comfortable, and recently finished to a good standard. We would certainly be willing to stay there again.

Experience all that Cornwall has to offer at the Old Cider House
Reviewed on 06/07/2017

Well presented and comfortable cottage in a great location from which to explore the Cornwall coast. A Rural experience but only one mile from a striking beach nestled between imposing rocky cliffs and the coastal path and walking tracks. Hosts Jon and Sam were lovely and we appreciated both the wine and Cornish "treats" that greeted us on arrival and the beautiful garden setting of their home and the cottage.

Reviewed on 28/06/2017

Our stay at The Old Cider House couldn't have been better. The cottage is such a lovely place to stay and enjoy the time in Cornwall. It is very clean, comfortable and offers everything one needs. It has a beautiful garden with many flowers, plants and even orchards, which are taken good care of by the very friendly and helpful couple that owns the cottage. They are right next door on the farm and always offer great advice on nice places to visit in the area. We can definitely recommend the beautiful cottage on the Tremayna Farm.

A Perfect few Days
Reviewed on 27/03/2017

We stayed for three nights at the Old Cider House and it was possibly the best cottage experience we've had. We didn't have any interaction with the owners once we arrived (although they were next door), but they'd left logs on the fire ready to light, some welcome treats including eggs, shortbread and a bottle of Cava, as well as a message to let them know if we needed anything. The cottage itself is really nicely decorated and very clean, plus Netflix on the big TV was another nice touch. Would happily stay here again.

Wonderfully cosy modern cottage with a log burner. The owners had champagne, cake, bread, eggs tea, coffee and butter all waiting for us on arrival. The cottage was set on a quiet road 3 mins drive from Crackington Haven beach. There was a massive garden and patio to sit in too. The location is perfect for trips to Bude, Bosscastle, Tintagel, Padstow. Will definitely be back.

We stayed at the Old Cider House during the second week of September and were not disappointed! Whilst the weather was a little hit and miss, the cottage was a welcome haven for our return. It was our first family holiday with our son, 6 months, and the cottage was perfectly equipped for every eventuality. The welcome pack from Sam and Jon was very generous: Prosecco, Cornish cake, butter and biscuits as well as everyday items like milk and tea to get you started. The cottage is a short distance from the lovely Crackington Haven and is well situated to explore both North and South Cornwall. Would not hesitate to recommend this lovely place to family and friends.

We stayed for a week in August and had a fab time exploring the local area - there's tons of coastal walks nearby and great beaches to visit. The Old Cider House was a great base for us, beautifully done up and really comfortable. It's set in a lovely garden and a large cider apple orchard. The owners were really friendly and helpful and they included lots of extra touches that made our stay feel even more special. You can walk into Crackington Haven (but be prepared for the uphill sections!!) and there's a great farm shop and cafe on the outskirts of Boscastle just a few minutes by car. We had amazing weather for the week - so all in all a wonderful holiday! Would highly recommend staying there!

Reviewed on 19/07/2016

We turned up early so went straight to the pub (needed after a 3.5 hour drive), we went to the Mill a little early and was welcomed by Jon who straight away was very interactive with us, chatting to see what we liked etc, sorted us out maps for walking and mentioned whats nice to see along the walk, we had a welcome postcard telling us that we have a bottle of fizz in the fridge, along with Butter, Bread, Biscuits and cake (the last morning I found a tub of Ice Cream in the freezer - gutted), the fire was fully loaded ready for a match to start it, loads of books, DVDs, coffee, tea, milk, sugar, washing up liquid, everything you need for the perfect start. We did the Crackington Haven to Tintagel coastal walk, it took 6 hours, once you get past Boscastle it gets easier, the first 6/7 miles are hard going. Beautiful place and would not hesitate to go again, cannot fault anything about the place. Thankyou for a lovely stay. Mark and Tara x

The cottage was very spacious, with a sitting area, dining table and sizeable fully kitted out kitchen in which we were able to cook evening meals. The cleanliness and attention to detail in the decor created a homey atmosphere and made our stay really comfortable. The cottage is surrounded by farms and country side (amazing views!) but is a good base for driving to visit other areas of Cornwall and Devon.

We really loved The Old Cider House: the accommodation has been beautifully prepared and was meticulously clean; the bed was comfortable and we slept very well; the living and cooking areas were great too. The garden areas surrounding the house are just amazing and we were able to explore the owners' vegetable garden and cider orchards too. It's easy to walk down to the bay at Crackington Haven, where we saw some stunning sunsets, and it's possible (though harder work) to walk up again. It's a very quiet and peaceful area of North Cornwall and the flat has views across some open countryside. We would definitely stay again.
