From the cottages you can enjoy breath-taking views of the North Cornwall coastline and Lundy Island.
CHURCHTOWN COTTAGES are a small cluster of traditional Cornish buildings which have been converted from the ancient manor house of St. Gennys and its surrounding farm buildings.
The South West Coastpath can be accessed only 200 metres from the cottages. The 21 mile stretch from Bude to Tintagel is the most dramatic and challenging to be found in the South-West.
The cottages are located close to the 12th Century St. Gennys Church and are set amongst fields bordered by National Trust land. Set high on the hill above Crackington Haven, the hamlet of St. Gennys lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and boasts panoramic sea views which extend out to Bude Bay, Lundy Island and the Atlantic.
A 15 minute walk along the coastal path (or 2 minute drive) will take you to nearby Crackington Haven, where you will find a pub, 2 cafes and a stoney foreshore with a sandy beach at low tide.
The Old Granite Barn has been converted into two luxury holiday cottages:-
