  • "2nd visit, just as good as the first."

    Location ideal, comfortable accommodation. Would happily recommend. P.S. brought strip of artificial grass with us as fussy dogs don't like lying on gravel outside!

  • "Kingfisher House was exactly as advertised."

    Extremely clean and very homely, lots of little personal touches in each room. So much equipment, there was nothing lacking. Good enclosed area for the dog, but maybe a good idea to have some mesh over the gate as small dogs could possibly escape through the gaps. The location was perfect for the village, with shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs all just around the corner. Would certainly return to Kingfisher House.

  • "Parking was a nightmare and not suitable for a 7 seater even with our cameras parking is very difficult."

    ( there appears to be an existing dispute with neighbours) There was no Garden only stones at the front and if I was there for a summer holiday the lack of privacy would have been an issue. The electric shower had no hose and the mains lacked power! I found the company excellent but I would not book the kingfisher property again. I was over for a family funeral not a holiday the property served its purpose as a place to stay but had I booked this property for a holiday, I would have been disappointed.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay and the house is ideally located in the centre of Tintagel."

    The parking space is very tight but we fitted our ix35 into it but if you are not a confident driver you may need some help with someone assistance. My only criticism was I couldn't see any instructions around recycling. I took our card, tin and plastic home with us. There was somewhere to put glass but I couldn't find any instructions on when and where to put any recycling out. This may be down to me not seeing it in the property instructions. Buy overall a great stay

    Oven broke and was replaced by owner next day; extremely prompt service. Fantastic location, liked that there were dog bowls there to use, great venue for dog walking and Tintagel very dog friendly.

  • "Lovely little cottage in a great location."

    Bed was comfy, lovely and quiet so had a good night's sleep every night. Well placed for the south west coast path, easy walks to Trebarwith Strand one way and St Nectan's Glen and Waterfall the other. Close to Tintagel Castle and the amazing coast line. Easy walk to local pubs and restaurants, local shops have everything you need. Only downsides were no manual for the oven so couldn't use and parking is a little tight so need to be aware unless confident parking. All in all would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

    Fresh Milk, tea bags and coffee there ready for us. Nice cosy warm cottage with comfy bedding. Prefect for dog lovers as it has its own in closed garden. Would most definitely stay here again beautiful

  • "Overall we really enjoyed our stay."

    Shower was pretty poor though, no water pressure as from the taps, electric shower needs to be re-instated. Main bedroom needs blackout curtains as the blinds do not keep the light out, so bedroom gets light from sunrise, so difficult to sleep.

    Disappointed and hurt …. We have owned and rented ‘Kingfisher House ‘ for the past 4 yrs now and received nothing but ‘GLOWING REVIEWS ‘ We have worked very hard to make the property as comfortable as possible, so to read this review from Ms Revell was incredibly hurtful. A ‘SYKES’ representative inspects the property before every new guests arrives and assures us the beds were perfectly serviceable and in good condition, prior to Ms Revell and her family arriving .. The window handle was also in perfect working condition .. I’ve personally shared three separate phone calls and two texts with Ms Revell offering to provide ‘two brand new beds ‘ during her stay, to which she declined, so, as for her not being able to get hold of the owner is some what baffling ….. As for the house smelling, the cleaner does a fantastic job of cleaning the house ( please see previous reviews ) as for the shed where we keep replacement paint to keep the house in the high standard it currently boast, the shed is out of bounds for guests and maybe parents should point out to their children, there’s nothing of interest there for them.

  • "Great location, literally a few yards from the main street with the shops & cafes."

    The castle is less than a 5 minute walk away too. And Bossiney beach. We were in a Range Rover Evoke & it's extremely tight getting through the space to the parking space, as other guests have also said about the parking. The sensors on the car were on at full pitch, as if you're about to hit something! A dishwasher would be fantastic.

    The house was clean, comfortable and within easy walking distance to the pubs, coastal path & attractions in Tintagel. The property also served as a great base for visiting Port Isaac, Padstow and St. Ives. As for the property, it was very well equipped with everything we needed. WIFI worked great and the 40 inch smart tv was nice when we needed some downtime after long days out.

    The house was warm and nicely furnished, the bed was great. You do need to be a very good driver to be able to use the parking space if dive anything other than a very small car. This is the first time we have been away with the dog and would definitely do it again.

    It is well provided internally and comfortable. While parking is available at the cottage, it is very tight and awkward for a larger car. The advert pictures allow the assumption that parking is situated at the front of the cottage whereas it is in fact around the side.

    Property was good. WiFi worked well (thank god with 2 teenagers!). Parking would be a bit awkward for the less confident driver & I would have struggled had the property next door been let at the same time, i.e. getting 2 cars in the space provided would be nearly impossible. Would visit again :-)

  • "Kingfisher House is very well located for the amenities of Tintagel being seconds away from the shops, pubs and cafes."

    Tintagel provides excellent access to SW coastal path and the house is an excellent location to use as a base to explore the north Cornwall coastline. We were fortunate that the adjacent car space wasn't in use as i don't believe we would have been able to access it with our skoda estate. Although the house had been cleaned in preparation for our arrival, it had a distinct musty/damp smell to it.

  • "The property is modern and well fitted."

    Is very near to all of the Tintagel village amenities. The permanent neighbours were kind and helpul. My one small criticism was that access to the allotted parking space was very restricted especially when reversing in or out due to the neighbours allotted parking spaces at the side of the access driveway. If two cars had been parked side by side in the allotted (Kingfisher) parking space then neither would have been able to maneuver in or out without both drivers being present and they could be complete strangers. Fortunately only my car was present throughout our stay so no big problems. I would still be happy to stay there again.

  • "Car parking not the easiest if you have a medium car or a large car as there is more cars parked in front of kingfisher House picture looks like there is plenty of space."

    Location of cottage is excellent for ( 10 yards from Main Street ) Tintagel and Cornwall, and the King Arthur’s Arms is a good place for eating. Cottage is ok for a family of 4, 4 adults may find it a bit on the small size. If you have booked remember to take tea, coffee, sugar, milk, bin bags etc as you will not find much there ie 4 tea bags small amount of coffee, sugar 1 bin bag and not much else. But overall Cornwall is always the place to visit.

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