Updated on Mar 31, 2019

Unique eco-build holiday cottage, on Bodmin Moor. Near Boscastle & Tintagel.

Located in: Altarnun
This gorgeous, architect-designed two bedroom bungalow features stunning details including natural slate floors (complete with underfloor heating), exposed beams, a light and airy open plan living area with a glazed 'atrium' corner, and a free-standing wood burning stove. A large decked veranda is furnished for outdoor dining, and is a perfect sun trap to enjoy for your morning coffee.

The cottage sleeps four in two bedrooms. It can be presented either with two super-kingsize double beds, or one super-kingsize double bedroom and one twin bedroom with full-size (3ft) single beds. Bedlinen and towels are included in the rental costs, as are water, gas, electricity, heating and unlimited Wi-Fi. Visitors should bring their own beach towels.

Little Crifts Cottage is located on a working smallholding near the moorland village of Altarnun, within the dramatically scenic Bodmin Moor AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). It neighbours its owners' farmhouse. The cottage is in a uniquely beautiful rural location, enjoying the peace and tranquility of the moorland over which panoramic views can be enjoyed from around the property. Bodmin Moor has recently gained Dark Skies Park status, and keen astronomers can enjoy stunning starscapes on clear nights.

Perfectly located to make the best of beautiful Bodmin Moor, a haven for walkers and horse riders, the cottage is also within easy reach of the stunning North Cornwall coast, and makes a great base for exploring the whole of Cornwall and West Devon. We welcome well-behaved dogs.

Little Crifts Cottage has been architect-designed and built specifically with holiday use in mind – we have done our best to ensure it has everything you could need in a place to stay, whether you’re looking for somewhere to get a great, comfortable night’s sleep in between busy active days, or planning to settle in, relax and enjoy the peace and seclusion of this beautiful corner of North Cornwall. The cottage is located on the edge of Bodmin Moor on a working smallholding, neighbouring our farmhouse.

The accommodation at Little Crifts Cottage features –

Two bedrooms, sleeps 4 (as two super-kingsize bedrooms, or one super-kingsize and one twin bedroom).
Stunning open plan living area with cathedral roof and exposed beams, a large glazed corner for maximum natural light, natural slate floors and underfloor heating.

What’s nearby?

The cottage is within easy walking distance of the excellent (and dog-friendly) Rising Sun Inn, with a well deserved reputation for its food and locally brewed real ales, located less than a mile along a quiet, almost level country lane.
The A30 is only 10 minutes drive from the cottage, providing easy access to all destinations in Cornwall and the South West.
The local village of Altarnun has a post office and small village shop.
A full range of services (including town centre shops and banks, supermarkets, local hospitals and GP services, veterinary clinics, leisure centres etc) are located in the nearby towns of Launceston, Bodmin and Camelford, each about 20 minutes away.
Bodmin Parkway railway station is about 20 minutes drive away, with local taxi services and car rentals available.
Walk directly from the cottage and out on to the dramatic landscape of Bodmin Moor (local OS maps and walking guides are provided).
The stunning North Coast beaches and harbours (including Padstow, Rock, Port Isaac and Tintagel) are a short drive away, and providing a wide range of options for surfers, swimmers, walkers, shoppers…
North Cornwall is becoming increasingly famous for its ‘foodie’ delights – and there are many wonderful producers and places to eat in the surrounding area. Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’ Restaurant which enjoys panoramic views across Watergate Bay near Newquay, Rick Stein’s justifiably famous Seafood Restaurant at Padstow, and Nathan Outlaw’s quirky little Fish Kitchen by the slipway in Port Isaac are just a few personal favourites of ours.
Watersports enthusiasts may enjoy sailing, windsurfing and canoeing at nearby South West Lakes Trust facilities at Siblyback and Roadford Lakes. These lakes – and many others – offer fishing, too. (And there is plenty of space at Little Crifts Cottage to park a dinghy!)
Further afield, the cities of Exeter, Truro, and Plymouth, with their full range of retail, entertainment, and cultural offerings, are each about an hour away.
NEW FOR 2019: Free use of the pool and facilities at Camelford Leisure Centre for cottage guests.
