  • "It was all that was advertised and our stay was enjoyable."

  • "Perfect cottage with everything you need!"

    The view is calm and gives a sneak peek of the beauty that surrounds you. I would only mention the shower screen, it was quite tricky to move. It couldn't go in our outwards, which made it difficult to reach the tap. I was worried we might damage it, as it seems badly fitted. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

  • "Arrived 22nd of December for our Christmas break,when we first opened door we was pleasantly surprised to see a Christmas tree and card wellcomeing us."

    Cottage was clean and comfortable, washing machine and dishwasher was a god send having four kids who eat a lot and get wet and dirty after a day out on the north Cornwall costs. Lovely views over the coast can be seen on clear days from the cottage. The cottage is accessed by 12 steps which are made of slate so can be a bit slippery under foot when wet but hand rails are there to help you. Would definitely stop here again.

    Loads of lovely walks directly from cottage. The owners were very easy to communicate with and any small issues quickly resolved. Would definitely love to come back.

  • "Lovely open-plan cottage, fantastic sea views which varied so much depending on the weather."

    A wood burner had been fitted just a few weeks ago and we really loved coming home after a walk in the wind and rain and sitting in front of the roaring fire. Katherine, the caretaker, went out of her way to provide help if needed.

  • "Cottage was perfect for us as a couple & our dog."

    The enclosed field and near by river walks were perfect for safe dog exercising. The coastal walks, river walks, waterfalls and it’s proximity to Tintagel & Boscastle made this a cottage we would love to re book next year. We only used one bedroom but the other 2 bunk bedrooms would mean the cottage could easily accommodate a family of 6/7 (one of the bunks is a double on the bottom)

    The living areas being on the upper floor made the most of the stunning view and the cottage was well suited and equipped for a family of 6 like us.

    Cottage was a bit cramped for 5 adults and the kitchen needed to be better equipped

  • "Let's address the elephant in the room first."

    .. as a previous reviewer stated, there are ONLY TWO TEA TOWELS. Yes, the cottage is extremely well equipped, very comfortable set in peaceful countryside, with beautiful sea views, it is a perfect setting. Yes, there is a dishwasher and a draining board and if necessary shops that sell additional plate drying equipment and/or numerous restaurants in Cornwall where they will wash AND dry your plates for you... but the limited tea towel numbers is definitely the most important issue here - truly holiday ruining stuff! :-) Joking aside - a couple of practical comments: Dogs - the location, (close to beaches, St Nectan's Glen and numerous walks/public footpaths), the lawn at the front and the cottage being pet friendly makes this a perfect cottage for dog owners. However, please note that there is no enclosed garden therefore if you have young or adventurous dogs, you will not be able to let them out without a lead. Also, the owner does not allow dogs in the bedrooms. WiFi - The cottage has WiFi but it was a bit temperamental at times. Whilst this was a definite bonus for us as it can be a relief to be away from a screen, I am also aware, (being self-employed), that sometimes it is necessary for emails/work reasons. The cottage is in a very rural location therefore it is to be expected that their WiFi is not the fastest, it was fine for probably 80% of the time but don't expect to rely on it. In summary, the cottage is truly fabulous - the views, the garden, the proximity to local amenities, the clean, pretty, comfortable and well equipped living space. It is perfect... unless you are a volume tea towel fan! :-)

    I had to phone twice to find out where the property actually was and even then I then had to speak to the owner in order to track it down. The property is lovely and in an amazing area, I don't know why you aren't clearer about where it is.

  • "The cottage was wonderful, the only thing we would update are the written instructions of how to get there as we had to call after circling several times."

    Adding coordinates and a few more words would help anyone unfamiliar with the area.

This superbly located cottage offers warming accommodation for friends and family to come together and enjoy at any time of year.

This area is one of character and charm, with rustic wooden floorboards and an electric fire creating a comforting environment.

The kitchen is excellently equipped with clay tone units, a whitewashed stone wall finishes the room off delightfully.

Head down the carpeted staircase to the neutrally decorated ground floor, here you will find the three well-presented bedrooms, with a triple bunk room perfect for families to come and stay.

In the summer, make the most of the stunning little beach and Merlins Cave is just waiting to be explored.

Head to Boscastle for a fun-packed day out, it has The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic and Warren Point which is well worth a look.

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, Camel Estuary and Port Isaac are all within a 40-minute drive.
