  • "Property as described, peaceful and quiet, although off the beaten track only a few miles from Camelford and Wadebridge."

    Easy access to the beautiful wild beaches of North Cornwall, one favourite Mother Ivey's on an evening. Excellent communications from Caroline who sorted out a plumbing issue immediately for us. Would reccomended this Property to friends and family.

  • "Kingfisher cottage was amazing, immaculately clean and had a brand new feel."

    Caroline, the host, has added lovely touches with plants and ornaments and the kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need. Super comfy bed and the bathroom is big with a great walk in shower. Outside lots of seating to sit and listen to the river and the bird’s singing and it’s so quiet and peaceful. Caroline is just so lovely, easy to contact for anything you may need. We had a wonderful relaxing stay (including our 2 dogs) and we will most definitely be back

    Thank you so much, it was a great pleasure having you visit Kingfisher Cottage and I'm so glad you had such a good time. I'm also happy that you really liked the river and the birds, it's such a tranquil place and I look forward to seeing you again with your lovely dogs too, Caroline Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage with excellent facilities."

    Only very minor niggle... the bed was a bit soft.

    Thankyou very much, I'm glad you liked the cottage. It's a difficult thing with the mattress, I bought a good quality medium in the hope that it would be likely to cover most bases, I'm sorry that it wasn't quite right for you and I hope it didn't impact too much on your stay.

    Caroline the owner is fantastic and always on the end of the phone if needed. A central beautiful location in the middle of all the places you'd want to vist. I will definitely be back. P.S Dog bowls and biscuits provided for your dog plus their own towel. Holly loved it

  • "A pleasant stay with lots of extra touches provided by the owner including dog bowls and treats."

    Only one thing to mention was the shower which lacked power but didn't spoil our stay. Thankyou very much, the outside space was a bonus and staying in September the nights were quiet.

    Thank you very much for your lovely review and for being such nice guests, I hope to see you again, Caroline Property Owner

    Lovely cottage the only thing is it would be better with a shower and not a bath we had difficulty getting in and out of the shower

    Thank you very much for your feedback and I'm very happy you liked the cottage. I am planning a walk-in shower and removing the bath later this year so I hope to welcome you back in the future! With best wishes, Caroline Property Owner

    stay at Kingfisher Cottage was absolutely perfect the first thing that we noticed what's how long and clean the inside was there was everything that we needed and more we thought at the gifts backs added just a little extra class and it was so nice sitting outside listening to the bird I would like to to say a big thank you to Caroline and all the team highly recommended xx

    Thank you so much for your lovely review Steven, and thank you for being such charming guests and appreciating everything so much. I'm very glad you had a lovely time and I would be so happy to welcome you back soon! With all my best wishes, Caroline Property Owner

  • "Quite pleasant, well equipped."

    Very quiet and peaceful. The bathroom would benefit from a shower only, the bath is very awkward to get in and out. The egg chair was appropriate as it was Easter. But an armchair would be better. I loved the discovery of the antique cups and saucers and the little Kingfisher outside the front door.

    Thank you for your nice review and I'm glad you had a good stay and enjoyed some of the little extras. You'll be glad to know that I'm planning a large walk-in shower at the end of this season so I hope I can welcome you again. All my best wishes, Caroline Property Owner

The property

Tintagel 6 miles.

Situated on the River Inny in the peaceful area of Davidstow, Cornwall is this single-storey, sunny detached cottage, Kingfisher Cottage.

Perfect for a couple or solo traveller, this charming retreat is within easy reach of the coast, with a babbling stream running alongside the cottage for a tranquil break at any time of year.

On arrival at the property there is an easy self-service check-in, while a designated off-road parking space makes unloading your bags an easy job.

There are welcome gifts to enjoy for both humans and dogs.

Step into the sunny open-plan space and begin your holiday with a cup of tea or a light lunch out in the courtyard, where you will also find a barbecue to rustle up your dinners in the warmer evenings.

Inside, the kitchen offers everything you need for an elaborate meal, or a quick picnic to enjoy at the beach, including an electric oven and hob and a fridge/freezer.

Dine with your loved one at the dining table for two, before unwinding with a film on the Smart TV; choose from a plush sofa where you can snuggle up, or a stylish and sought-after egg chair for the ultimate relaxation.

When sleep calls, the double bedroom offers a lovely space to rest your head, with plenty of storage for your belongings, and when you wake, freshen up in the bathroom before setting off on an adventure!

For days out while at the cottage you are spoilt for choice.

Immerse yourself in history with the grandeur of Roughtor and its Bronze Age ruins on your doorstep in the AONB of Bodmin Moor, or tour the nearby WWII Davidstow Airfield and Cornwall at the War Museum just around the corner.

Maybe make your way to the nearby coast for plenty of walking opportunities along one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of the South West Coast Path.

Venture into beautiful Boscastle, which is just a short car journey away, and visit the mystical Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, before enjoying the spectacular views of Warren Point at Boscastle Harbour and discovering the cliff top rock arch, the Ladies Window that lies between Boscastle and Tintagel.

In the lively village of Tintagel, there are plenty of attractions to enjoy, foremost the legendary Tintagel Castle amid its vast sea views after crossing the stunning new bridge.

Spot seals in Tintagel harbour, and later maybe visit the famous Old Post Office, a Manor House which dates from over six hundred years ago.

Follow in the footsteps of King Arthur and explore the dramatic falls of St Nectan's Glen in an enchanting, wooded area, or wander the captivating coves and caves such as Merlin's Cave under the castle or Bossiney Cove, for a private picnic with your loved one.

Just down the coast is Port Isaac where you can wander through TV's Doc Martin’s harbour village and visit the well-known fishmonger right on the slipway or, at the top of the village, a wonderful family run cafe and shop where the local lobster and crab are brought in by their own boat.

The beaches are famous here, spotlessly clean as they are washed by the sea twice a day, while most are dog-friendly - often, your footprints are the first.

Surfers have a wealth of choice of different challenges from the easy to the more tricky like the local secret of Tregardock, where the big tides at full and new moon mean you can get to the other end of the huge beach and forage for the really big mussels.

There are many restaurants in the area that range from wonderful cafes like Charlie’s in Tintagel who are proud to use the local produce from this lovely area to more heady establishments if you want to push the boat out, where you can try the food of world famous chefs who include Rick Stein, Paul Ainsworth and Nathan Outlaw.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.
