An absolute gem!
There's nothing negative to say about this beautiful house. My only annoyance is that more and more people will find out about it and that I won't be available next time we want to use it!
The hosts were fantastic, it was clean, homely and comfy. The cider was beautiful, the finishing touches exquisite and the gardens lush and bountiful!
A great spot to stay to explore Cornwall.
Did I mention the cider? It's great.
Jon and sam owners of this lovely cottage are lovely, left us lots of goodies including a bottle of cider! Such a peaceful place wonderful and quiet , we went around a lot to port Issac , Boscastle beautiful places to visit , I would definitely go back
Much needed holiday
This was just the break we were looking for, a quiet, relaxing place that was close to some great beaches and places of interest. Sam & Jon were the perfect hosts and we were greeted with a hamper of home made Cider, that was chilled in the fridge and some essential groceries, all of which were well received after our long journey.
We will not hesitate to recommend this holiday destination to our friends and we hope to return there soon.
We can only reflect what everyone else has written in their reviews. The Old Cider House is a great place to stay and so close to most of the main towns such as Bude, Boscastle and Port Isaac. Sam and Jon have made this place a little haven the gardens are so pretty and peaceful to laze around in with a glass or two!! of their fantastic homemade Cider. We would definitely love to go back soon to visit all the other places we did not have time to see in beautiful Cornwall. Thanks very much Sam and Jon for your hospitality.
Private, Peaceful, Tranquil
Perfect weeks holiday in a peaceful and quiet location. Jon and Sam are excellent hosts and a welcome pack on arrival is a lovely touch.
The accommodation is superb and well placed to explore the north Cornwall coast or to just sit outside and take in the peaceful surroundings.
Would highly recommend this property.
A beautifully appointed and decorated cottage in a beautiful location. Sam and Jon were very friendly and helpful and we appreciated the welcome pack. We'd definitely come back.
Between Bodmin and Bude, Crackington Haven lies a few miles from Boscastle and boasts a spectacular beach with some of the best surf in the county. A popular pub, a couple of charming tea rooms and a lovely woodland and coastal walk are also excellent reasons for a visit. Crackington Haven is on one of the most dramatic stretches of coastline in North Cornwall. The village itself is located in a very narrow valley with steep sides leading to a beach where beautiful sand is exposed at low tide. The beach is popular with surfers and the surrounding coastline is a huge draw for walkers. The cliffs are not only dramatic, but are also geologically fascinating. Immediately north of the beach is Pencarrow Point and a few hundred yards south is Cambeak headland. One mile south of Crackington Haven, High Cliff rises to 735 feet (224 m) with a sheer drop to the rocky foreshore. The surrounding area has beautiful countryside and nearby Bude has a full range of shops, pubs & restaurants. There are a whole range of beaches within a few miles drive along the coast as well. The landscape rises dramatically to the south onto the moors with more superb walking to be had - it really is a lovely place to visit and explore!
Boscastle is one of the most picturesque villages in Cornwall, with a tiny natural port and coastal paths passing through superb unspoilt countryside, much of it owned by the National Trust. Browse the shops and enjoy some refreshment at one of many charming cafes in the village. Boscastle, situated on rugged North Coast of Cornwall, has an incredibly picturesque tiny natural port. Once a thriving port at the base of a ravine serving North Cornwall, the village now survives on its tourism industry. Unfortunately, the disastrous floods of 2004 damaged some historic properties, but Boscastle is most definitely up and running again now. The Witchcraft Museum, which re-opened in 2005, houses an extensive collection of related artefacts including a Dutch collection donated to the museum in 2000. There are many gift shops and cafe's in the village, as well as a pottery, with amazing coastal walks and views to each side of the valley. On the north side of the harbour at Penally Point is a natural blow hole, which at low tides with enough swell sends plumes of water high into the air. There is a fabulous 7 mile walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven which is extremely popular, although it is quite a testing length of coastline. Many sites of interest surround Boscastle with lots to explore. Nearby Tintagel and a ruined castle heralds myths of King Arthur, with Camelford rumoured to be Camelot of old.
Widemouth Bay is a varied and interesting beach with a long open bay. At the northerly end of Widemouth there is a large sandy area that becomes more exposed as the tide drops and to either side of this the sand gives way to some fantastic rock formations. The beach is ideal for families, whether you wish to swim, sunbathe, surf or hunt for marine life in the hundreds of rock pools. Lifeguards are present during the season. These are some of the best beaches in Cornwall so don't miss the chance to try your surfing or 'boogie' boarding skils. There are a number of surf schools in the area. For Walkers and Cyclists the area is full of superb routes and Bude lies at the centre of the most dramatic stretch of the South West coastal footpath. There are numerous local villages and landmarks to explore and much of the area ia a nature lovers paradise.
Bude is a popular resort for families and surfers, boasting spectacular sandy beaches and some of the best waves in the county. The town, located close to the border with Devon, is filled with shops, restaurants, pubs and even a local theatre. Bude is Cornwall's most northern town and has been a favourite seaside resort since Victorian times. The coastal scenery surrounding the beaches of Bude are quite beautiful. There is a huge amount of bird life for the dedicated twitcher and some wonderful walks along the cliff tops. Along the coast is Sandy Mouth which is ideal for families due to its lovely sand and numerous rock pools. Morwenstow, which is a little further towards Devon is just south of Henna Cliff. The cliff is the highest in Cornwall and has a sheer drop down to the sea. From here you can see across to South Wales. The centre of Bude has a theatre, concerts, dances and fetes, as well as other events throughout the season. There is a new Visitors Centre in the Crescent car park which has an extensive display by the North Cornwall Heritage Coast and Countryside Service including a children's area. There is a weekly Cornish Furry Dance and an annual Carnival Week. Bude is also home to a popular jazz festival which takes place every year in August.
