Perfect escapism in a beautiful cottage
We had a wonderful week in Barton Cottage. The cottage is in a breathtaking location and has a homely feel with every comfort provided. It is only a stone’s throw from the coast path and you can walk down to Crackington Haven in no time at all - a lovely beach with a great cafe. St Gennys church is beautiful with amazing views of the coast. There are so many lovely places to visit nearby: Bude, Boscastle, Tintagel to name but a few. Francis, the owner, is very helpful. We are looking forward to returning soon.
Idyllic country cottage
We had a lovely week at Barton Cottage, which is a gorgeous, quaint and very well kept holiday property in very tranquil surroundings with a view of the sea and surrounding countryside. We were welcomed by Francis the owner who gave us some pointers on local walks etc and reassured us that he was easily contactable if necessary without being intrusive. The location of the cottage was ideal for visiting the places we wanted to visit and coming home to a lovely log fire after a day out was a treat. We’ll definitely be returning to Barton cottage!
Wonderfull week in Barton Cottags
We (4 adults) have spent a wonderfull week in Barton Cottage. The house is spacefull and offers all you need for a stay in rural surroundings. The costal path is nearby, the situation of the house is calm and peacefull. Crackington Haven with the beach and the Inn is not far. There ist new and comfortable furniture in the living room and the whole Cottage has a typical and 'romantic' atmosphere.
2 weeks holidays in Cornwall
We appreciated the cozy Barton cottage very much, it is beautifully situated near the coast path and the church of St Gennys. A perfect place to make nice walks along the coast path, Indeed a very lovely place and we liked the friendly owner who was always available to answer our questions and could also give us good advice where to go.
Lovely autumn break at Barton Cottage, St Gennys,Cornwall.
We recently had two weeks perfect holiday at Barton Cottage in the most beautiful and peaceful situation just a ten minute drive from the nearest beach Crackington Haven or a 30 minute walk along the coast path down to the beach. The cottage is a very comfy character home with everything you need for a lovely holiday. The surrounding area is stunning fabulous beaches for surfing and swimming and dog walking and beautiful coastal walks. Hopefully we will be back with our dog for another lovely holiday next year.
An idyllic location
We loved staying at Barton with our dog as the location is exceptional for a quiet break. Amazing walking right on the doorstop, a half hour walk to a little town with a gorgous beach (safe for swimming or surfing), pub, cafe, shop. We didnt need to get in the car the whole time we were there.
The cottage is located less than a mile from Crackington Haven, which is included in the best surfing beaches in England and was recommended by the Marine Conservation Society in its Good Beach Guide. The scenery in the beach area of the surrounding majestic cliffs is almost unrivalled. At high tide, the beach is a mass of quartz-veined pebbles and large boulders but at low tide, it reveals an expanse of sand and many rock pools. Only the road separates the sea from a couple of beach shops, two superb beach cafes and a public house with a restaurant and fantastic terrace. The cottage is located in the parish of St. Gennys, which prides itself on the excellence of its public paths with the National Trust owning most of the cliff and adjacent farmland.
As you travel down the coastline, you can visit quaint coastal villages such as Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac, the latter offering a range of fantastic restaurants where you can enjoy the freshest and most delicious fish.
Fifteen minutes up the coast is Bude, a popular tourist destination for both its surfing and fantastic family beaches in Widemouth Bay. The watchful eye of the RNLI lifeguards allows for some of the best surfing in the world alongside swimming and a whole host of water-based activities. Bude today is a lovely sea-side town, the main shopping streets and inter-connecting alleyways play host to a wide range of locally owned shops, restaurants and pubs. There are boutiques, shoes, arts & crafts, jewellery, hand-made gifts and souvenirs.
Six miles inland is Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Cornwall at its wildest and rich in ancient history, Bodmin Moor stretches for 30 miles through the heart of the County of Cornwall and offers spectacular walking and horse riding.
With easy access to the both the A30 and the Atlantic Highway you can quickly travel up and down the South-West to enjoy some of the larger tourist attractions that Devon and Cornwall have to offer.
