Trevigue Farm

A cobbled courtyard farm tucked into Cornwall's finest cliffs 

Dating back to the 16th century, this is a working farm within five minutes stroll of what feels a private beach. While surfers flock to neigbouring Crackington Haven, Strangles Beech is invariably deserted, with magnificent surfing breaks sweeping warm Gulf Stream waters onto miles of untouched sands. The farm itself is all but organic, with pedigree cattle slowly grazing on heather and free-range chickens roaming the grounds and laying your breakfast. Farmed by the same family for three generations, it's an atmospheric refuge of flagstone floors, cosy log-burning stoves and exposed oak beams. Thanks to a warm-as-toast Cornish welcome, this is a fantastic place to experience North Cornwall in all its natural grandeur and beauty. 

There are four guest bedrooms, each named after points on the cliffs between Trevigue and Crackington Haven, a mere pebble's throw along the coast. In three guest rooms beds are superking - easily made up as twins on request - while the fourth has a king-sized bed. All are furnished with crisp white linens, fluffy duvets, en-suite facilities, and Freeview TVs while two rooms also have retro radios. As befits such an ancient building the rooms are all different with their own character, mixing period facilities with very modern comforts. The largest guest bedroom, Highcliff, can be made up to sleep three with a further 3" bed, while the smallest, Little Cam, provides tremendous value when you factor in the quality of your breakfast.

Remember the phrase 'Breakfast like a King, lunch like a Prince, and dine like a pauper'? At Trevigue Farm they take that to the logical extension. The breakfast is a feast with a wide choice of delicacies, including smoked salmon or aga-cooked creamy porridge topped with fresh fruits, agave syrup and seeds, as well as the classic Full English. And that's it. For lunch and supper Crackington Haven and Boscastle are close by, but there's also a lovely sitting room, often warmed by a log fire, for the exclusive use of guests - and, of course, wifi throughout. Trevigue Farm welcomes children over eight.

A private farm cottage nestled in Cornish cliffs

This is a beautiful and very spacious cottage folded into the landscape of National Trust farmland, a haven of reclaimed wood floors and exposed beams, with a large kitchen and two separate living areas, both with open fireplaces. 

Adding to the sense of space there are two wooden staircases that lead up to the bedrooms. From the kitchen you go up to the master bedroom with a king-sized bed and the second bedroom, which can be configured as a superking or twin. The main sitting room provides access to a double room with a kingsize double bed and a final room with a single bed and a spare mattress suitable for children. 

Trevigue holiday cottage is perfectly laid out for relaxed beach holidays. There's a downstairs power shower to rinse off sandy toes and a utility room for hanging wetsuits. There's wifi throughout, a plasma Freeview TV, Blu-ray DVD player with cinema sound and a Bose bluetooth speaker. More usefully, perhaps, are a selection of board games. The kitchen is beautifully equipped, with a Range Master induction cooker, dishwasher, microwave and everything you need to make cooking easy. Children and dogs are welcome, though niether should be left unattended - obviously.

Your B&B Hosts

Your hosts here are Gayle and Henry Crocker, who farm this National Trust farm that is also home to their three children. It's a warm and hospitable place in a beautiful location, with the lulling sound of waves, the calls of seabirds and the gentle moos of contented cattle forming a symphony of sound that soothes and rejuvenates. And as you're sat in the ancient courtyard enjoying your morning coffee you'll see that this is just the way you like it.


Trevigue Farm is set just off the South West coast path, a five-minute walk from Strangles Beach and in easy walking range - just over a mile - from Crackington Haven where you'll find shops, tea-rooms and a pub, Boscastle is close by in the other direction, while for more amenities the towns of Bude and Launceston are 20 minutes drive.
