The property

Resting in the scenic village of Delabole is the appealing semi-detached cottage, Hope Cottage.

Sleeping up to seven guests across three floors, Hope Cottage is a magnetic base for a family adventure to Cornwall, within easy reach of the gorgeous north Cornwall coastline.

As you step into the property, there are hooks to hang any coats before being invited into the open-plan living space, where there is a spacious kitchen area certain to entice any budding chefs, a dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal with your loved ones as you talk about your day by the ocean, and a sitting area which is warmed up by a woodburning stove as you relax for the next day.

To complete the ground floor, there is a utility room with a washing machine that is also a great entrance for those coming in with sandy feet, so you can leave your shoes to dry off.

Heading upstairs, there is a bunk room, a sweet single bedroom for a bit of extra privacy and a double bedroom which has great views of the pretty village and storage for those who slightly unpack.

There is also a bathroom where guests get the choice to soak in the bath or freshen up in the shower, as you clean the sand from between your toes.

Climb up to the second-floor, where there is a further double bedroom with a sloped ceiling, sea views and an en-suite shower so guests can get ready in style.

Outside there is off-road parking for one car, and an enclosed rear garden with plenty of lawn for your children and pets to play, and a patio boasting furniture so you can enjoy a bottle of wine under the stars.

Hope Cottage is just a few steps away from the village pub, a bar, a playing field and a shop for any of you self-catering needs.

Take a short drive to Tintagel and explore its history and ties to King Arthur, including a gorgeous shoreside castle and a statue, as well as Merlin's Cave and the Toy Museum.

Also worthy of a visit is the picturesque fishing village of Port Issac, which has some wonderful scenic spots, National Trust cottages and the Portwenn View Observation Deck, which offers breathtaking sea views․ For any tv and movie fans, Port Issac is also the home of the TV series Doc Martin and the film Fisherman's Friends.

Also in the area you can surf the waves at Polzeath Beach, benefitting from the famous Atlantic swell, and discover the famous South West Coast Path or visit the interesting Davidstow Airfield and Cornwall at War Heritage Museum.

For a lovely family escape to Cornwall, choose the admirable Hope Cottage.

About the location

DELABOLE

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.
