  • "On arrival we found the cottage welcoming and homely."

    We were impressed by the cleanliness and found the cottage was well equipped. We were most impressed by the size of the rooms as they were bigger than the impression we got from the photographs. The beds were clean and comfortable and the garden was a good size with plenty of seating to take advantage of the sun or shade as you choose. We have two small Chihuahuas and they could squeeze under the gate but a 'normal' size dog would be fine. Matt, the owner, lives on site and was very friendly and helpful with suggestions of places to visit I would highly recommend this accommodation and will certainly book again on my nest visit to Tintagel.

  • "Our stay at Gull Cottage was lovely."

    Great location from which to explore Tintagel and beyond. Gull Cottage itself was just as it was listed and provided us with a lovely cosy home for our stay there. Matt provided a friendly welcome and was on hand if needed.

  • "Excellent location and cottage."

    The mattress in the main room was to soft and thin for our likening, just a preference, had no impact on our stay and enjoyment in what is a great cottage

  • "A quiet location at the end of a cul de sac, but very close to Tintagel's village centre and the important pasty shop and coffee shop."

    Also within a couple of minutes you are on the coastal path and able to enjoy the special views of Tintagel Castle. We walked over the coastal path to Trebarwith Strand, but a short drive to the beach means you can spend the day rock pooling, body boarding and sunbathing.The cottage has a lovely little suntrap of a private garden and plenty of off street parking. The owner was on hand to answer any queries and very welcoming. Although the cottage doesn't have any grand views, the convenience of its location, and cleanliness and practicality of the accommodation (all on one level) makes it a definite winner.

The property

Situated in the village centre of Tintagel, on the coast of Cornwall, is this charming property, Gull Cottage.

Internally, the owner has created a smart and warming retreat for friends and families looking to escape to the coast and explore the village's rich history.

Entering the property, you will be welcomed into a spacious porch which is ideal for those looking to hang their coats, kick off their muddy boots or store their bikes.

Relax and unwind in the welcoming sitting room which has two large sofas to cosy up with your loved ones and benefit from the wall-mounted TV with blu ray player for your evening entertainment.

Walk through to the open-plan kitchen/diner which has all the necessary appliances for cooking up some delicious meals, whilst also benefitting from a dishwasher and washing machine as some added extras.

Choose from a double, twin and bunk room to get some much needed rest for the day's ahead, and enjoy the matching bedside tables and lamps in the master bedroom for some late night reading.

Outside has a private and enclosed lawned garden and patio area where you can dine alfresco during the summer months, or light up the barbecue for a summer time treat.

Nestled in the bustling village of Tintagel, you are well-placed for accessing a number of delightful eateries, including the King Arthur's Arms Inn which serves traditional pub foods.

If you're a keen history lover, then you will not be disappointed with visiting Tintagel Castle, which rests on a clifftop and boasts rugged views of the coast.

This castle was said to have been the birthplace of the legendary King Arthur and has a wealth of history to discover inside, whilst also discovering the hidden gem below, Merlin's Cave.

Further afield is the popular St Nectan's Glen, a woodland spot which has a scenic waterfall and plenty of trails for those looking to explore the nearby region.

Head South along the path and travel one of the most stunning walks of the whole coastal path taking you through 7 valleys to arrive at Port Gaverne or a short hop next door to Port Isaac - please note this walk requires walking boots and is very strenuous and will take 4-5 hours.

Moreover, if you happen to be bringing a dog, Trebarwith Strand Beach (Dog friendly) is situated within a couple of miles, with a wonderful establishment by the name of Port WIlliam (Dog friendly pub) overlooking the beach.

Gull Cottage is a wonderful retreat for those seeking to explore the Pentire Point coastal region.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location

TINTAGEL

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.
