Everything covered here - well equipped and comfortable and has everything you need. Beautiful position. Close to beach, pub and lovely cafe. Fantastic walks. Almost reluctant to leave a review as would like to keep to ourselves..... Highly recommend

“Wonderful Dingley Dell”
Reviewed November 21, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Our family and friends first holiday in Crackington was in 1950. We stayed in three locations on Ludon Farm. Dingley Dell was the first thing we saw looking out of the Windows towards the sea, and became the dream house of us all. We stayed for up to four weeks every year until the late 70s when we left England for a long period working overseas.

We resumed our visits to Crackington in 2006 and four of us have stayed twice a year almost every year since. Dingley Dell has remained exactly as we always remembered, and we invariably lingered in passing to peer over the hedges and dream of being able to live there.
It was wonderful to find that Dingley Dell is now available for rent and we immediately booked for four of us to spend a week in the house of our dreams. A UK holiday in November is always risky, but nothing could deter us from the opportunity.

The house is stunning with wonderful views, beautiful period furnishings and features. Our fears about the possibility of an old and cold environment were quickly allayed by the effectiveness of the storage heaters throughout the house and the gas fire in the lounge inglenook. The rain attacked the house for five days in a row but we were just happy to stay indoors most of the time and watch the seas pounding Penkenna and The Black Rocks.

All the bedrooms, bathrooms, toilet facilities and kitchen arrangements were excellent, and the only thing to watch out for is the duck marker warning of the staircase height.

We were so delighted with every aspect of the house that staying in was an unexpected rare pleasure.

Needless to say we will be returning again having already booked two visits for next year!

“Beautiful, tranquil and a welcoming retreat”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

We got out of the car on our arrival and were stunned by the beauty and tranquillity of Dingley Dell - certainly a haven from the busy outside world! Set on the hillside overlooking the cove of Crackington Haven offering unparalleled views of Cornish countryside and the sea. The house itself was most definitely a home which we settled into immediately. It was comfortable and furnished with quality furnishings in keeping with the era of the house. All modern facilities were available but were carefully blended in to fit with the style and era of the property. It certainly lent itself to a happy family holiday. We shall be returning next year!

Thank you for your lovely review. It is so difficult to capture the fabulous views from the property in photos and certainly impossible to get across the feeling of tranquility that surrounds it - your words are very helpful. We look forward to your return visit with pleasure.

“Wonderful winter retreat”
Reviewed February 10, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

A really comfortable, spacious rental home with amazing views and a lovely, homely ambience. Like another reviewer, I was a little sceptical about the night storage heaters and it took a while for them to kick in on arrival but by the following day the house was really snug, especially with the gas fires in the large sitting room and kitchen. This is really important for a winter stay!
The house is well equipped, especially the kitchen, with pretty much everything you need apart from salad servers. Plenty of large casserole dishes and lovely crockery ( not the cheapest either). In fact the kitchen was so cosy that we mainly ate in there.
Beds were really comfortable, with fantastic uninterrupted views of the bay from three of the bedrooms. Waking up looking out on that view is just heaven. Another bonus was the really good internet access.
We found we had to reverse out through the gate to avoid scraping the bottom of the car. - might be a useful tip for others? Otherwise, cannot recommend Dingley Dell highly enough, it was just such a lovely place to relax, recover from the excesses of Christmas and start the new year.

“Fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed December 22, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

What a great house with a fabulous setting. Really well equipped and very clean. We were doubtful about the storage heaters providing enough warmth, but the house is very warm and cosy. Some of the window seals have gone in the bedrooms so the wind does howl through them! The pub served good food (take a torch for walking home in the dark!) and the beach is great for walking on with the dogs. Can't wait to go again as we had a great relaxing time.
