  • "Take it from a seasoned Cornwall fan who has already stayed at several holiday properties in the area in the last 10 years: This cottage has exceeded our expectations."

    It came with literally everything we might want to feel good, and then some. It was spotlessly clean. It has very good beds. Lots of storage space. It has all modern appliances. Bathrooms and the kitchen look brand new. The living room is cosy and full of character. The whole property is full of air and light and has great view of the sea and old medieval church and the magical Tintagel Castle is literally around the corner. Overall impression is: GREAT.

  • "Thankyou for a great stay."

    The bungalow is beautiful, home from home and great place to relax on holiday. Location of bungalow in Tintagel itself is perfect, as is 2 parking spaces. The sunny garden with the lounger chairs provided was fabulous. We read you plan to change the bathroom later this year to a shower room which we agree would improve the property. Only other feedback from us was regarding the mattress in back bedroom was too soft for our preference, but that’s personal choice. We had great week in Tintagel...helped by brilliant weather

    !! They were divine, never underestimate the importance of being able to enjoy a good night's sleep after a busy day. Tintagel is lovely, so many quaint shops selling local crafts. The scenery is beautiful, even when the weather was blustery and rainy it was mesmerising to watch the sea crashing against the Rocky cliffs. Magical.

The property

Perched close to the edge of the Atlantic coast of Cornwall in the pretty village of Tintagel is where you will find the superb annexe-style property, Halcyon.

This all-ground-floor accommodation is a superb base for a family seeking to explore this corner of Cornwall, carved by a rugged coastline and a picturesque countryside, with a well-equipped base to come back to each evening.

After soaking up your picturesque surroundings and admiring the far-reaching sea views from the private garden area, be welcomed into the spacious kitchen/diner, where you will be delighted to find contemporary fittings which house all the quality appliances you could possibly need to cater for yourself during a week-long break, as well as a washing machine and a dishwasher for convenience.

Stepping into the sitting room, you are welcomed in by the striking red sofas which rest in front of the TV, creating the perfect setting to unwind with your loved one after an action-packed afternoon.

Sink into the sofa to tune into the TV or select one of the books on offer or enjoy hours of entertainment courtesy of the selection of games that await you during a winter’s evening.

The charm of the property is continued into the two well-presented bedrooms, comprising of a spacious family bedroom with two double beds and a double bedroom, each boasting a contemporary design and ample storage space to house your personal belongings.

Throw open the patio doors to spend a balmy afternoon within the enclosed garden area, where you can enjoy a spot of alfresco dining or enjoy a deserved glass of wine while the sun sets over the coastline.

Tintagel comes with a superb selection of amenities, including a choice of pubs and restaurants to suit a family of all ages and tastes, in addition to shops for picking up the essentials.

Brush up on the local history by discovering Tintagel Castle or soak up the sun at the nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove.

Other attractions within the area includes the woodland spot of St Nectan's Glen where you will find a 60-foot waterfall and the National Trust owned Glebe Cliff offers breath-taking views of the coast of Cornwall.

Halcyon is a wonderful base for exploring this picturesque location with your family.

Please note, the bathroom will be upgraded and converted into a large walk-in shower room with seat from November 2022 onwards.

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 and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive.
