The well-equipped kitchen leads through a conservatory out to a large enclosed garden, perfect for relaxing after a great day out.
The village of Delabole lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which enjoys the same status and protection as a national park.
Being in the heart of the village a very short stroll brings you to the village pub, The Bettle and Chisel, a listed inn with a comprehensive menu offering locally sourced food and local ales.
The well-known Smugglers Fish and Chip shop is a popular place to stop after a long day spent on the beach.
Also a lovely half mile walk away is the Poldark Inn on the cliffs, and a 10 minute drive or a 45 minute walk, will get you to Trebarwith Strand.
This has a stunning beach with great surf and small cafe and shop.
It also has the Port William Inn, a traditional smugglers haunt, which does amazing food in a stunning setting overlooking the sea.
There is an incredible number of stunning beaches within 20 minutes’ drive, offering a wide variety of surf and sea based activities.
There are also many walking opportunities close by and the wild surfing beach at Tregardock, a 40 minute walk away, is well worth seeing.

About the location
Tintagel 3.5 miles; Camelford 5 miles; Port Isaac 6 miles.
At one time the producer of the world’s best quality building and ornamental slate, this now sleepy village is just 2.5 miles from the high cliffs and dramatic scenery of the north Cornish coastline. Perfectly placed for walking the South West coastal path, exploring the high places of nearby Bodmin Moor, or for lazing on the beach at nearby Trebarwith Strand, it’s a well-placed holiday base. The peaceful harbour village of Port Isaac and the town of Tintagel, with its tourist attractions and King Arthur’s legendary castle, are both a short drive, while the stunning surfing beach at Polzeath is a mere nine miles away. Slaughtersbridge, where King Arthur reputedly fought his last battle, is five minutes away and a drive north along the coast takes in the beautiful cove at Crackington Haven. An area away from the main tourist crowds, but very central to a vast array of places and activities. Delabole Quarry itself is just down the road and is an interesting tourist attraction with stunning views. It is the gateway to great countryside walks.
