Abel’s was featured in The Guardian 13/05/17; ‘We head towards the sea for a cliff walk looking over Crackington Haven beach. It feels as though we’re walking at the edge of the world: the contrast of blue sea, craggy coast, gorse bushes and wildflowers is transfixing. And the kids love it too. Once in a while, it’s good to feel small and let the landscape dominate you.’
We are sure you will fall in love with Cleave Farm. Many families return year after year, a clear indication of the popularity of Abel’s Cottage.
