  • "An absolutely wonderful place to stay, superbly decorated and furnished, everything you could want - a lovely bed in particular, we slept very well!"

    - a nice touch of a cream tea upon arrival and overall we felt very welcome and comfortable the coastal path is literally minutes away and the walk into town easy and quick so didn't need to use the car - the bus stops outside so its a good way of going to the start of your walk, say in Boscastle, and then walking back along the amazing clifftop path before collapsing in the comfort of the cottage -

  • "We have just returned from a week at Dowr Cottage!"

    It was absolutely beautiful with everything you could possibly need and so tastefully decorated. John met us on arrival and explained everything and gave advice on walks/restaurants etc, although there is plenty of information inside the cottage. Parking was very convenient and Tintagel a beautiful place to base yourself for visiting so many wonderful places. A real gem and can’t wait to return.

  • "Lovely small cottage, which is very well equipped and tastefully decorated that we thought is ideal for two people who enjoy walking into Tintagel for its pubs, restaurants and cafes and also like coastal walking, as the coast path is just a short step away."

    A good base for exploring the area, visiting for example, Boscastle, Port Isaac and St. Nectan’s Glen.

  • "Lovely property, extremely well presented and equipped."

    Great location, just far enough out of Tintagel to be away from the crowds but near enough to easily walk in. Only50 yards away from the Bossiney Tea Shop (excellent for breakfast/lunch) and near access paths for coast walks to Tintagel and Boscastle. Would also recommend The Tintagel Brewery and Bistro just outside Tintagel for quality lunch/evening meals (and beer) in a nice environment.

  • "Firstly, it has to be said the cottage is lovely and cosy."

    The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you will need, the lounge area is very comfortable with a great electric fire. Both the bedroom and bathroom are also very nice with great linens and fluffy towels, although we didn't have the bathrobes as mentioned (maybe due to Covid restrictions?). The cottage is very warm with central heating and hot water pretty much when you want it. The owners John and Mandy have obviously put a lot of thought into their holiday cottage. Location is good with beaches, coastal walks nearby and also the major attractions. A previous review mentioned the car parking being an issue. Although there is NO on site parking there is about 50 yards away a small communal place to park for about 7 cars at best. As we were not staying in peak summer time we didn't have a problem but we think this could be an issue in better weather in the summer, but the cottage has a permit for the farmers locked field which we also used and found to be easy, no problem, at no extra charge. We wouldn't park in the road outside the cottage as we felt the road was not wide enough. We feel we have to mention that the cottage is on the quite busy B3263 road which runs from Boscastle/Bossiney/Tintagel etc and the bedroom window is literally next to the road (no pavement) which we found certainly in the mornings there was the inevitable traffic noise. From the picture and description it says the small garden is completely private which is not the case. You cannot see an adjoining cottage with their kitchen window and back door overlooking the garden. The garden bench is placed right outside the window for the adjoining cottage with no privacy. The weather did not allow us to sit outside but personally we do not believe we would have done so due to the road being so near, just feet away. We feel people should be made aware of this as this was not mentioned in the description.

  • "This property is exceptional and exceeded our expectations."

    It was clean, comfortable, well-equipped and tastefully decorated. We were able to park outside the cottage but there were two other parking options close by if this hadn't been available, both free of charge. The owner was lovely and couldn't have been more welcoming and friendly. We have absolutely no complaints and can definitely recommend this cottage. The location of the cottage is close to coastal walks and Tintagel, so a great base for exploring the local area. The tea room next door is very good too!

  • "This cottage was absolutely delightful."

    The cosiest place I have stayed in. It has everything you could ask for and the decor is spot on. We stayed here July this year and the whole experience was fab. The cottage is a short walk from the beach and a short walk from the bars and restaurants of Tintagel. The hosts were lovely and on hand if you needed them. It’s the ideal location to stay when you want to visit other places in Cornwall. I couldn’t recommend this place enough and if we were to come back to Tintagel would definitely stay here. Well done

    The owners have really gone the extra mile to make this cottage cosy, welcoming and very comfortable. It is extremely well equipped and everything you could think of is provided - even dressing gowns in the wardrobe. I would certainly recommend this cottage to anyone wishing to holiday in Tintagel.

  • "This cottage was amazing."

    We have always self-catered and we have to say this is the best one we have ever gone to. It was such a romantic getaway for us. John and Mandy have created a beautiful cottage and have gone the extra mile. Was a lovely touch having the free bottle of wine on arrival. There was so many beautiful walks near by which we did, with a lovely peaceful beach literally 5 minute walk from the cottage. Thank you again!

  • "Brilliant holiday."

    The cottage was in an ideal location for us. Tintagel itself is a lovely little village with ample to see and do. The easy access to the coastal walks was great. Bossiney cove was wonderful and a stones throw from the cottage. The cottage was lovely very modern and very well presented everything you need. The added bottle of wine and milk to start us off was a nice gesture. I would definately reccomend the cottage and Tintagel and would love to return to both.

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.
