    “Kitchen: The oven wasn't useable - there is no temperature marks on the knob to say what temp to use, nor on the oven knob to say what you were using, ie, Oven, grill, half oven/grill, and even when using it "hoping" we couldn't get it to heat up.”

    The back left ring of the hob only works on the inner ring (should be dual), which made hob cooking difficult for a meal only having one large ring to use. I would suggest the cooker needs replacing! ...

    The back left ring of the hob only works on the inner ring (should be dual), which made hob cooking difficult for a meal only having one large ring to use. I would suggest the cooker needs replacing! The inside of the microwave was so dirty I didn't want to use it, but had no choice as the oven/hob was basically not useable, and we'd already bought food rather than go out too often. Bathroom: In the main bathroom, where the toilet meets the floor, it was disgusting - not been cleaned in a while, I'd say. The sink taps were VERY wobbly, and also the shower on/off tap was loose. General cleanliness of the house wasn't up to scratch (maybe 4/10), especially in these trying Covid times. I had to clean all touchpoints as the fridge door handle was filthy, so I then felt I had to clean all touchpoints and cupboard doors - not clean! Bulbs were out (3 out in the dining room/lounge). The back door (that we had to use to get in), is really difficult to lock/unlock. Anyone with any problems with their dexterity would probably find it impossible to lock/unlock the door. Many cobwebs were visible. Appreciate any house gets them, but these looked pretty old! We were asked in our confirmation email, not to use too much water, or heating etc, as they'd had some extortionate bills during the summer. I don't find that acceptable. Either we can use the facilities, or we can't. It is a lovely little village/location and close to amenities as described. There is a lot of Airbnb paperwork around, so we assume that it is also advertised on there. It is, we think, a family's home (very lived in). We weren't expecting a show home and are generally easy going, but there were many things that let this place down for us.

The property

This spacious semi-detached house is set in the village of Delabole, in the heart of King Arthur Country and is close to Tintagel and the ancient market town of Camelford.

You will sense the homely feel immediately when you enter the house which is full of character, offering perfect family accommodation as a base for touring Cornwall, especially the rugged north coast.

There are three large bedrooms, two of which are on the first floor with a family bathroom, and one is located on the second floor, along with a shower room.

The comfortable living room has a lovely open fire and is ideal for both dining and relaxing.

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.

Also within easy reach are Tintagel with St Nectan's Glen and King Arthur’s Castle, Port Isaac (Doc Martin), Boscastle and Padstow, as well as the cities of Truro and Plymouth both being about 45 minutes away.

This superb house is an ideal base with spectacular countryside, cliffs, beaches, historic fishing villages, tin mines and adventurous activities all close by.

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.
