our setting

Crackington Haven is halfway between Bude and Tintagel on the dramatic north coast of Cornwall. Wooda Farm is tucked away in a sheltered valley outside the village and at the end of its own 1/4 mile track. With land extending to 20 acres and no immediate neighbours Wooda offers peace and seclusion in an environment of great natural beauty.

Within the farm boundaries you will find fields bordered by Cornish banks, and ancient hedgerows interwoven with honeysuckle and wild rose. You will find gnarled apple trees in the orchard and oak, ash and beech that tower over you in the fern-filled wood.

 

Step aside the
primroses as you wander down to the stream, where you will find rocks and slate worn smooth by the cascading water. Listen to the woodpecker drumming, hear the buzzards cry and the owls hooting to each other across the valley. Cross the rickety wooden bridge into the water meadow, smell the almond-scented gorse, climb the willow.

And as you find your way up to the top field, chance upon the cherry orchard hut, startle newts in the pond, be dazzled by diving swallows and be hit by the sea breeze as you reach our highest point and gaze out over views to the Atlantic and Dartmoor.

All this is yours to explore when you come to stay at Wooda.

the beach

It is a 35 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) to the beach which at low tide is a glorious stretch of sand and surf with smooth shale rocks creating numerous pools.
The beach is wonderful for swimming, surfing and generally frolicking in the waves.

Heather clad cliffs - the highest in Cornwall - provide a stunning backdrop. There is a pub, two cafes and a tennis court by the sea and direct access onto the South West Coastal Path.
