  • "Absolutely loved our stay in this cottage."

    Amenities were plush, clean and plenty of space for our family. Especially close to the village so those interested in walking to dinner, to the cliff side, etc, I would highly recommend this location.

    The large enclosed garden was great for our dog. Most equipment was provided but a drainer for crockery is badly needed.

  • "Photos of outside need changing or outside of property needs painting, very tired."

    Certain cleaning aspects need addressing, such as cobwebs in conservatory above loo and base of tap stand for bath, although tricky could both be much better. Would also suggest getting rid of the carpets, all are stained and tired and not particularly hygienic, especially considering the high level of linens/fittings throughout. Having dealt with the cons, we would definately book this cottage again as location and attention to fixtures, fittings and linens is very good and we loved the garden for the dog. Would recommend to others.

    Thank you for providing your valuable feedback following your stay at Pound Rocks. We are pleased to hear that you would love to visit again. We have spoken with the management company regarding the points you raised and we have been advised that new carpets are being fitted in April. The cleaning points have been addressed with the housekeeper and a conversation will be had with the owner regarding the exterior decoration. Property Owner

  • "What a great cottage in a perfect location."

    Easy access to the Coastal Path and all the amenities of Tintagel. Fully equipped and very comfortable - pretty much everything we needed was there. Cottage is warm - we did not need to light the fire. Conservatory is a great place to chill out and read after a good walk. Would recommend as a great place to stay.

  • "Just returned from a week at Pound Rocks."

    What a super place to stay, just around the corner from the main street but quiet and private. Spacious and a great mix of traditional and modern. Modern where it is really appreciated (Kitchen and bathroom) with traditional features such as the hallway tiles and doorknobs adding character and charm. Very well equipped, with everything you would need to cook and clear up with too. We ate out quite a lot but it was nice to know everything was there if we wanted to cook. Also do read the information book, the instructions for every appliance are there, along with quite a few guides to local attractions. The water in the shower was hot, could have done with being just a little cooler but couldn't work out how to achieve that but great to have the option of a very deep bath or a shower. The garden is charming and is bigger than the photo's suggest, the rear garden is completely escape proof so the dog can have a run around while you stay dry in the conservatory. Sadly the weather was a little cool to get the most out of the conservatory but I would imagine it's great in warmer months. The only thing we had difficulty with was the sofa. Stylish and comfortable but a little low. The first time I sat on it I sank into the comfort but was like an overturned beetle getting back up - my husband rescued me otherwise I might still have been there. The beds are very comfortable and good quality bed linen and towels are included. A few thoughtful extra's were found and enjoyed. I wouldn't hesitate to return to Pound Rocks and would strongly recommend this accommodation to all.

  • "We made 3 phone calls re the internet issue."

    It was the 3rd call that the lady was very helpful and gave us a reference number and rectified the issue. By then it was the end of the holiday. The internet signal needs to be stronger. The actual bungalow is very nice and comfortable. And excellent location in Tintagel. Needs to be kept update but you can tell the owners have quality taste. The bathroom is of a very high finish.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave feedback. \We are sorry to hear there was disruption caused by the internet. Unfortunately, we cannot and do not guarantee the strength and speed of the WiFi. However, I am glad to hear of the other positive points that you have raised. We hope you enjoyed your stay.

  • "We had a lovely holiday in Tintagel."

    The bungalow is in a great position for the small town. Would benefit from some painting inside and out. No washing line which was challenging for a family of 5 with wet suits etc. Also no BBQ. Both would be an easy fix. Used the washer-dryer a couple of times but took hours and it all came out smelling funny so rewashed once home. Was all very clean and has great potential.

  • "The cottage is lovely."

    The cleanliness was fantastic. The owner supplied , not only a welcome pack but everything you could want for in your own home. Beds and pillows were top quality. The location was excellent, being just a 2 minute walk from the high street. If i was to be at all critical i think the walls would benefit from a coat of paint. But this should not put you off booking,

    The bungalow is well equipped clean and cosy The internet was not great but think thats Cornwall in general. At the moment with covid restrictions lots of the usual places in Tintagel were not open it was sad to see the place so quite. But this didn't spoil our time here. We will be back to pounds Rock for a third visit in the future.

  • "Pound Rocks was a perfect holiday home for us, we loved it!"

    Comfortable, contemporary, clean and in a great location. The promotional photos are accurate, what they don’t show is that the property also retains some of the original features of the place, which give it additional charm! I had read that there was an issue with the WiFi and the heating but these had clearly been resolved - both the WiFi and heating were excellent.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Pound Rocks and appreciated the bottle of Sav Blanc that was waiting for us on arrival."

    The property was immaculately clean, well presented, comfortable and ideal for my elderly mother due to being on one level and having a beautiful bathroom with large accessible shower. The garden, which wraps around the bungalow, enjoys the sun late into the evening and is secure for dogs. The property is well placed in Tintagel as it is literally around the corner from the high street, so very convenient for eating out and picking up groceries. The National Post Office and Tintagel Castle are also within easy walking distance. Overall, a lovely stay and we would highly recommend the cottage, Tintagel and the surrounding area.

    Situated in the ideal position to explore the coastal path with plenty of local walks and rugged scenery. Very close to the village, with shops and pubs nearby. There is some construction work being carried out on the land at the back of the property, on week days, but this did not affect us too much as we were out most days.

  • "The property was covered in mould, had dirty covers, the kettle was disgustingly dirty inside and not fit for purpose, lack of basic equipment in the kitchen, chipped cups, insufficient mugs and a ripped old chair."

    We had to purchase our own basic equipment. The bins were half full on arrival and a man was in the house when we arrived. We sent a letter of complaint which was met with the response we hadn’t looked in the cupboards. However we had looked in every cupboard before we went out and bought a chopping board, sharp knife, potato masher, glasses, cups and a kettle. Not good at all and total lack of customer service. Certainly not worth the money we paid

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.
