'This place is gorgeous. Wooden beams, a high ceiling, and charming wonky floors and walls that mean you are in a “real” old house. Natural light pours through the windows, and outside are rolling landscapes of dewy-morning grass lit up by the sun – all accompanied by the sound of birdsong and bleating sheep.'

Abel's is a wonderful ancient barn. The cottage is a converted blacksmith's smithy, which combines a contemporary and traditional interior. It has been comfortably converted and maintains it's high beamed wooden ceilings, slate and wooden floors and lovely old stone walls.

Abel's cottage is situated at Cleave Farm Cottages, down a private mile long lane which passes through a stream. It's secluded location is just 1 1/2 miles from beautiful Crackington Haven beach. Th...

The cottage is secluded, comfortable, funky and well-equipped. The beautiful coastal trail is right there and outstanding in both directions. The owners were helpful and hospitable. I have already recommended this fantastic spot to a friend.

Drive access road so no passing traffic at all. Slightly disappointed that another cottage was being built outside the kitchen window, which would have had the best view, and wasn’t mentioned before our arrival. Small complaint though, as the cottage was pretty, rooms lovely and...More

'We head towards the sea for a cliff walk looking over Crackington Haven beach. It feels as though we’re walking at the edge of the world: the contrast of blue sea, craggy coast, gorse bushes and wildflowers is transfixing. And the kids love it too. Once in a while, it’s good to feel small, let the landscape dominate you, and forget about the trappings of city life.'

North Cornwall has many diverse places to visit. Stunning beaches and walks, local food, fishing villages and moorland. Cycling trails, sailing, exciting outdoor pursuits, surfing, rock climbing etc and golf courses. Fantastic pub food and restaurants.
There really is something to keep everyone happy!
