    “Highly recommend Horseshoe Cottage”
    We have just spent a lovely week in Horseshoe Cottage, it's a real gem. Debbie and Russell the owners leave a lovely welcome hamper of homemade cake, locally produced bacon and eggs, butter milk and bread, they are on hand should you need them. The cottage has a log fire and log burner (We didn't need to light the log burner) and is very warm and cosy, the kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher and washing machine and is wonderfully spacious, I certainly had kitchen envy.

    We have just spent a lovely week in Horseshoe Cottage, it's a real gem. Debbie and Russell the owners leave a lovely welcome hamper of homemade cake, locally produced bacon and eggs, butter milk and bread, they are on hand should you need them. The cottage has a log fire and log burner (We didn't need to light the log burner) and is very warm and cosy, the kitchen is fully equipped including a dishwasher and washing machine and is wonderfully spacious, I certainly had kitchen envy. The lounge area is very comfortable with 2 sofas and a television, dvd player and games console, at the end of the lounge is a dining area. Upstairs ( the stairs are steep but you get use to them ) are 2 beautifully decorated bedrooms, 1 double and 2 singles, a bathroom with the most amazing shower in the world with fluffy towels and a heated towel rail. The cottage is situated in Deladole a busy working community with 2 pubs and a local spar, the Quarry is about 200 yds from the cottage and we parked in the free car park without any problems, nearby is Tintagel, Boscastle and Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed. We had a wonderful week staying at Horseshore Cottage and highly recommend it.

The property

Perfectly located for touring the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall, this cosy yet spacious 250-year old cottage is set in the village of Delabole, just one mile from the coast and six miles from Port Isaac.

Immediately on entering Horseshoe Cottage, you sense its history and character through its beamed ceilings, slate floors, open fire and woodburner.

Beautifully furnished throughout, there are two individual bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs, whilst downstairs you will find a well-equipped kitchen with slate floors and a log burner, plus a spacious, comfortable sitting room with an open fire and a dining area.

A small patio area, The Herbery, is at the side of the cottage and a real suntrap, perfect for a drink at the end of the day.

Delabole lies within Cornwall’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is, itself, steeped in history.

It has a King George V playing field and is home to the oldest working slate quarry in the world, where tours are available.

Close by is Treligga Downs, which afford the most amazing views both up and down the coast, and the surfing beach at Tregardock, which is well worth the walk.

One must-visit is the village of Port Isaac, a short drive away, made famous by the filming of TV's Doc Martin, and frequently used as a set for the Poldark series.

With a range of Cornwall's best beaches all within a short drive, and ample opportunities for walking, cycling, golf and fishing, Horseshoe Cottage is the ideal base for a holiday in this historic area of Cornwall, at any time of year.

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.
