The Old Cider Press Luxury Self Catering for 4 United Kingdom

Barn in England, United Kingdom

Property Details of England Barn

The Old Cider Press is located close to Crackington Haven, on Cornwall's rugged North Coastline. Originally a barn, part of a small courtyard of buildings for the nearby farm, now converted into a luxurious home - the ideal place to take a relaxing break. The building has been meticulously restored by the highly acclaimed local builder, Norman Bellis. Using original materials such as the stone walls, timber A frames and local slate, together with high quality modern fittings, such as the hardwood double glazed windows, he has produced a building which meets the highest modern expectations, and yet blends in perfectly with its natural surroundings. From the front door, you can view the Atlantic Ocean. On a clear day, the Island of Lundy can be seen, some 19 miles away. Inside, every detail has been taken care of to make sure you have the most enjoyable break away. The perfect location as a base to explore the rest of Cornwall, or just to stop and relax. With two double bedrooms, The Old Cider Press is suitable for 4 people, you'll also find a Sofa Bed if you prefer a bit more space.

Local Area Details

The Old Cider Press is located about a mile inland from the north Cornwall coast near Crackington Haven. Here you will find some of the most spectacular coastline in the world. The cliffs are among the highest in Britain, and the cliff path walk from Crackington Haven is a must for all visitors. For the adventurous a climb down to the secluded beach at The Strangles is a most rewarding expedition.

Nearby coastal villages include the picturesque Boscastle. The only natural harbour for 20 miles along the North Cornwall Coast. Boscastle village, complete with cottages with higgledy-piggledy roofs, clings to the side of the beautiful Valency valley. Explore the delightful High Street, many of whose properties have stone and slate porches, and large slate flagstones leading up the garden path. Craft shops, a Witches Museum, a disused watermill, even a bakers and fruit shop. Old Inns such as The Cobweb, and The Napoleon are both full of character.

Boscastle is a delight in Spring, beautiful in the colours of Autumn too- like many of the wooded valleys of Cornwall. At the Harbour Entrance is the 'Boscastle Blowhole', audible just after low water under certain sea conditions, as water surges in. In Summer divers sometimes explore its murky depths.

A short drive will take you to Tintagel, home of King Arthur's Castle and the fishing villages Port Isaac and Padstow. If you intend to eat at Rick Steins seafood restaurant in Padstow, you will need to book well in advance of your visit.

The Sister Ports: Port Isaac, with Port Gaverne, are totally surrounded by open countryside and lie in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Heritage Coast Area. The character of the old fishing village conservation area, and its setting, is the subject of many planning and development constraints.

Larger nearby Towns include Bude and Launceston. Both have excellent local amenities, including many local shops, as well as large supermarkets. We encourage our guests to support the local shops and businesses, so you will find a list of nearby shops, pubs and restaurants when you arrive.

Venturing inland, a thirty minute drive will bring you to the edge of Dartmoor. Covering 368 square miles, Dartmoor was designated one of the National Parks of England and Wales in 1951. It is a beautiful moorland landscape with wooded valleys and wind swept Tors. The public is able to roam freely on unenclosed, open moorland on both foot and horseback. There are also about 600 miles of public rights of way. Dartmoor is a rich habitat for wildlife and has a wealth of archaeological remains.

A similar distance away is Bodmin Moor. The Moor is dominated by dramatic granite tors which tower over the sweeping expanses of open moorland. Marshes and bogs on the high moor drain into shallow moorland valleys before the rivers cross onto softer shales around the Moor and carve themselves deep river valleys, providing shelter for rich, damp oak woodland.

One of the most popular attractions in Cornwall at the moment is The Eden Project. About an hours drive away, it's well worth a vist - but pick your time carefully. It gets very busy!
