  • "It's a good 5 hours journey for us to Cornwall, and we were an hour early than the check in, so we were only going to have a look then go to the pub til our check in at 3pm, but they said it was ready, which was great as we were shattered."

    when we got in, there were beautiful flowers, bottle of Prosecco, Cornish shortbread, milk and even some dog treats for our dog, so lovely thoughts. But all quality fittings from furnishings to bedding and towels. Would definitely recommend and stop there again, Louise the owner came to say hello, and when we left sent us a message to thank us for leaving it tidy etc. Loved it that much didn't want to leave

  • "Really lovely cottage."

    Even better than we expected. The garden is fully enclosed so perfect for our dog. It has everything including a dishwasher and a washing machine which was really handy for us. Great location near the A30, so easy to get around. Really nice touches like the gifts on arrival and the flowers. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "The cottage is lovely , large and spacious and was very clean."

    We loved the added touches such as flowers , Prosecco and biscuits . The dog liked the dog treats and the dog towels were really handy . The cottage is in a good location to explore both the countryside and the coast . It is a little in the middle of nowhere although there are two pubs within walking distance !

About the location


Launceston 8 miles; Boscastle 14 miles; Port Isaac 18 miles.

A very pretty village on the edge of Bodmin Moor, located close to the A30, making it the perfect base from which to tour the many visitor attractions within easy reach. Altarnun itself boasts quaint stone cottages, a stream running through the village, a lovely old church, and a traditional country pub. After a long day exploring the stunning countryside around Bodmin Moor this is an ideal place in which to unwind. Explore four unique villages, Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac and Crackington Haven, each situated along the dramatic unspoiled coastline of North Cornwall. Port Isaac, a filming location in Doc Martin, is a busy port where you can still watch the fishermen hard at work. Walking and cycling are popular activities in this area and there are beautiful churches and historic buildings to discover. Venture a little further afield and walk the high tors of Bodmin Moor, surf the waves of the North Cornish coast, sample the delights of the Eden Project or take a cruise from Truro down the misty reaches of the River Fal to Falmouth. There's something for everyone nearby, from moors and river valleys to beaches and harbours, stately homes and museums to potteries and galleries.
