Crackington Haven

Crackington Haven lies at the mouth of a steep valley and consists of Coombe Barton Inn, a couple of beach cafes (Haven Cafe and The Cabin Cafe) and a couple of shops,  a few houses and of course the excellent family beach.  A stunning location with high cliffs and a gentle sloping beach consisting first of pebbles and then leading onto the sand.  Great for walkers who can explore this stretch of National Trust coastline and coastal walks. Penkenna cliff is shown in the photos below- walk the footpath up Penkenna Cliff and on the other side  lies St Gennys church.  2 miles further along the coast are High Cliff (signposted from Crackington Haven and at 700 feet the highest cliff in England) and  isolated  Strangles  beach.
Coombe Barton Inn has a bar and  restraurant (good food and a sunday carvery). The two beach cafes have indoor and outdoor seating, the outdoor seating allowing  lovely views over the beach and sea with Penkenna cliff looming on your right as you look over the sea. Reasonable  parking charge in the large car park (in 2007 only 50p an hour and £3 all day).  There are public toilets hidden away on the beach side of the road.
