  • "What a wonderful stay we had at Rogues Retreat."

    The house was the perfect base for us. Upon arrival it was beautifully clean and the little welcome to pack was gratefully received after a long journey. It really was a perfect location with Tintagel a mere 2 mins walk away in one direction and about 10 mins walk in the other direction, a beautiful walk on the coastal path awaited. The house itself is tastefully decorated with everything you need in the kitchen and the beds were so comfortable. If I could add anything it would be some curtains or blackout blinds in the bedrooms - the streetlight outside the main bedroom was really bright even with the blinds closed. We will definitely look to book again if we decide to come back to this area. Thank you for lending us your beautiful house. It made for a wonderful holiday.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future. Many thanks, Ian and Anne-Marie Property Owner

  • "Overall the property was a lovely house to stay in and I would consider coming back, good location and lots of nice touches added."

    However the general cleanliness of the house was a little disappointing- carpet (mainly the living room) was covered in dog hairs when we arrived so I had to hoover before I could put my toddler down to play, the hall carpet was also really dirty where the runner kept moving, skirting boards all dusty, bathroom floors not mopped very well and just lots of surfaces with dust on. This isn’t what I expected considering the price we paid for the property. Also to note that you will need to bring your own toilet roll, dishcloths, binbags, dishwasher tablets and any cleaning products you may need to wipe the sides down etc. I hadn’t realised this based on the listing. The property is really close to the shops and Tintagel has lots of options to eat as well. The beach at Tintagel is closed currently which was a little disappointing as we didn’t realise this, however there is a really lovely beach 2/3 miles away at Trebarwith Strand which is well worth a visit. Final point to consider- great that baby products (stairgate, high chair) etc are included however I would strongly recommend bringing your own travel cot as the mattress on the one provided is really hard (like cardboard!) for a baby to sleep on. Overall a nice property to stay in for a week.

    Many thanks for your comments, and we are glad that you would consider coming back. We have had much positive feedback with regards to the cleanliness of the house over the past year, with some guests calling it a “home from home”. However, we will double check in future to ensure that the lounge carpet and skirting boards are absolutely spotless. If, and when, you do return, please note that we do include an emergency contact number, so that any problems or niggles such as these can be quickly rectified. We do include some basic essentials, such as toilet rolls, bin bags and dishwasher tablets, so we will investigate what happened to those. Kind regards, Anne-Marie and Ian. Property Owner

  • "A lovely house, very close to Tintagel High Street."

    The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. Only request would be for better storage for clothes in bedrooms 2 and 3, as there was nowhere to hang clothes. A great location for visiting many beauty spots.

    Thank you for your feedback. We’re glad you liked the house and the location. We’ll take another look at storage in bedrooms 2 and 3. Best wishes, Ian and Anne-Marie. Property Owner

  • "Great property with good facilities (washer, drier, dishwasher, tv with good selection channels, parking)."

    Clean house with lovely decking area to relax in sun. Very short walk into Tintagel and shops, pubs etc as well as Castle. Coastal walks nearby too. Short drive to local beach and close to other tourist visits such as Port Isaac, Boscastle and St Nectans Glen and Waterfall. Weather was great. Children had a fantastic week.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and everything was to your liking. Best wishes, Ian and Anne-Marie Property Owner

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday here and were welcomed with Cornish biscuits, tea, coffee, sugar and fresh milk in the fridge."

    The house was spotlessly clean with a modern and fresh vibe throughout. The kitchen facilities were generally good, especially the white goods. We could have done with a bread knife though. There were 5 adults staying in the house during our break and there was mainly enough space, although the kitchen diner and patio set only had 4 chairs/ stools. Overall, we’d definitely recommend staying here: the house is very good and a perfect location to relax and plenty to do in the area. The walks and scenery are superb. If you do have any queries Ben, is very responsive. It’s worth booking!

    Thank you so much for your feedback. It is lovely to know you enjoyed staying at our property. It is really helpful to know how we can make things even better, so thank you for your observations. We have now bought a bread knife and two more kitchen stools! The patio set does in fact seat 8, but it is not obvious at first glance, so we will highlight this in our 'Welcome Literature' for future guests. When the set is not in use, the 4 chairs tuck under the table and 4 stools , cleverly, tuck under the chairs. Cushions for each seat are stored under the stairs. We have also now added 2 collapsible occasional patio chairs. Thank you for mentioning Ben. He has been so helpful with all queries and is super efficient! Best wishes, Ian and Anne-Marie Property Owner

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.
