“Lovely house in a lovely location!!!”
Reviewed September 21, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We spent a week in Dingley Dell at the end of July 2017, and what a lovely week we had! The house and location were second to none and meet all the needs of our extended family from 6months old up to grandparents, and even a dog. The short walk to the beach made it very accessable for all, and was so easy just to pop down to body board and pop back again if the weather wasn't nice enough to lounge in the sun. The nearby pub is also excellent serving lovely food (especially the fish and chips!), and the cafes very handy for ice cream in hot weather and coffee if a little chilly. The added bonus was use of the tennis court which gave us hours of fun, and the amazing garden meant we didn't have to leave the house every day looking for things to do. A lovely house in a lovely location (I haven't even mentioned the amazing views!!) which we very much hope to enjoy again!

Date of stay: July 2017

“To us, and our now grown up children, and their children, this is paradise”
Reviewed September 5, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We've been coming to Crackington every summer for over 30 years. The beach and it's surroundings has everything one could wish for in a family seaside holiday, including outstanding beauty, and a feeling of peace and tranquility. Each year we've noticed Dingley Dell, and dreamed of being able to stay, not realising one could! On arrival this year we immediately felt at home in the warm, family friendly atmosphere. It is superbly equipped, even down to toys and puzzles for our grandchildren, We wanted for nothing during our stay.
The beautiful garden is a childs dream This is our best location ever, thank you Dingley Dell! We've already re-booked for next year!

“Superb second visit to Dingley Delld”
Reviewed June 5, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We stayed at this wonderful home in May 2016 and promised to return, which we did in May 2017. Just as beautiful and tranquil - we hope to visit again in 2018. Our family including grandchildren and dog stayed - it was perfect in every conceivable way. It is obviously well-loved by the owners.

“Fabulous house, great location”
Reviewed May 1, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We stayed here for a week over the Easter holidays, family of 5 (3 kids aged 11,9 and 6) and our dog. We loved the house. Great location, minutes walk from the local cafes, Coombe Barton Inn (pub) and beach. We loved crackington haven, dramatic coastline, unspoilt, untouristy beach and friendly people.

The house was ideal. Lots of room for us all to spread out. Well equipped with everything that could be needed. Large garden for kids and dog to play in and explore. Decent sized bedroom and very comfortable beds!

Really lovely holiday. Thanks!

“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!

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.
