Round House Cottages

Tintagel 0.5 miles. Situated in the small coastal village of Bossiney, 0.5 miles from Tintagel in north Cornwall, these cottages are on the owners’ smallholding where there are ponies, chickens and fabulous views over fields towards the sea. These attractive Tintagel cottages have been created from the farmhouse and farm buildings and each retains its own privacy, with its own front entrance with garden, and all overlook the paddocks. With a variety of accommodation options these Tintagel cottages sleep up to thirteen people, ideal for family and group gatherings near the Cornish coast. Just a short walk away lies the small beach at Bossiney Cove, ideal for beachcombers, while the great surfing beach at Trebarwith Strand, with its beachside pubs and cafes, lies just a little further. The legendary King Arthur's Castle is just under a mile away from these Tintagel cottages, while Camlann, the believed site of King Arthur's last battle, and the accompanying visitor centre, provide a feast for history buffs. There is much for families to see and do from these well-presented Tintagel cottages.

A 5 minute walk leads straight to fields and the SW Coast Path. A secluded garden offers sunny relaxation and convenient parking is available.”

    • “Nothing was too much trouble. The owners were very friendly. The accommodation was very clean, homely and quiet. We love Bossiney and spent our honeymoon in Ocean Cove Caravan Park. The beautiful coastline never ceases to amaze us. Would and have recommended this apartment to friends. We have tried other areas but always return at least once a year, very dog friendly. Ozzie loves The King arthur arms in Tintagel.”

    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The cottage was very clean and well equipped, with more than enough space for two people. It was a nice touch to see a bottle of wine left for us, although some tea bags and a drop of milk would have been more useful! The lounge allowed us to spread out (a sofa each!)and the patio outside was quite private. Being so close to Tintagel meant we could walk to the shops, and having a bus stop next to the cottage was handy for our one way coastal walk (although buses pretty infrequent so careful planning needed). The worst thing about the cottage was the lack of privacy when inside. Residents of the neighbouring cottage walked right past our kitchen window regularly, and the bathroom window was a patio door with no curtain, so we had to be careful when getting out of the bath, just in case someone had gone exploring next door! The best thing was a location right on top of the South West Coastal path. The views over the sea were lovely, and different each day”

    • “Wonderfully close to the coastal path. Convenient bus stop right outside the house to take a bus to Boscastle then walk back along the coast. Walking distance of Tintagel the other way. Took us a long time to find the DVD player (it was a sideways slot in the flat screen TV). We didn't see the owners and weren't sure which house they were in. Off road parking was helpful.”

    • “Loved the log burner, gave a real sense of warmth to the cottage on a cold night.”

    Mr Jones, Margate, February 2015

    • “The log burner was great when we sat in front of it, with a glass wine each on a cold evening.”

    Mr Jones, Thornbury, January 2015

    • “I was looking for somewhere totally peaceful where I could get on with some writing and this proved the perfect retreat. Very picturesque and tasteful. A short walk into the village provided all my needs. The wood burner made for cosy evenings even though it was mild for October. I slept brilliantly every night. So many beautiful coastal spots a short drive away and less than ten minutes to walk to the coastal path for fabulous views and broad Atlantic vistas. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Thomson, Lincoln, October 2014

    • “We found the Garden Apartment very good value for the price. Everything you needed for a weeks stay was there, plus very clean. Would recommend the Apartment to others.”

About the location


Camelford 6 miles; Wadebridge 12 miles.

Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, whose ruins dominate the cliffside just outside the village, is a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. The surrounding area is dominated by the sea, rocky coves and stunning scenery. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must. For the energetic, the SW Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions it winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs for refreshment. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude, with their resort attractions, while the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Padstow and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive.
