Perfectly located for touring all of Cornwall but in particular the spectacular North Cornwall coast, this cosy character cottage is set in the village of Delabole near the town of Camelford and the popular villages of Tintagel, Boscastle and Port Isaac, all major attractions in their own right.
Set away from the main road in the village, this end-terrace cottage offers a home-from-home feel throughout.
The sitting room has a woodburner to keep the chill off on cooler evenings and leads you through to the kitchen and dining area.
From here you can open the double patio doors and step out into the courtyard, a delightful sun trap to relax at any time of day.
There are two well-furnished bedrooms on the first floor which along with the bathroom complete the accommodation.
Being located in the heart of King Arthur country you will find the area abounds with castles and battle sites as well as some excellent beaches.
One of the closest, Trebarwith Strand, is owned and cared for by the National Trust and offers a long stretch of golden sand, almost a mile at low tide, backed by flat rocks and steep cliffs with several caves to explore.
This is a must visit as you will see why it has been used as a location for several top films, all testimony to the beach's stunning natural beauty.
Delabole is an old fashioned Cornish village and you will find all you need for everyday living, several shops, a well-regarded listed old pub serving local beers and good food and even a playing field for the children, all within a short stroll.
An ideal base for visiting Cornwall at any time of year.
Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin. Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with woodburner.
About the location
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.
