  • "The Blue House was fine overall but lacked some of the home comforts we’ve been used to in other holidays cottages we’ve visited over the years."

    Namely, no space or useful places in the bedrooms or bathroom to put toiletries and belongings. Also, the house had an odd smell when we went in which we deduced was a smell of damp. In addition, there was no prior warning that builders and diggers would be digging immediately outside the property every day of our holiday - even Good Friday and Easter Saturday. This made enjoying a rest or lie-in rather difficult. Tintagel is lovely but we won’t return to this particular property.

    Thank you so much for your feedback, we’ve taken note of your points re the creature comforts. We’re sorry that you had this with the builders - they’d assured us that they wouldn’t be working over this period - now we know this, we’ll take it up with them. We appreciate your comments and would ask that if you ever had any concerns to get in touch with us at the time so that we could rectify it. Thanks again for staying with us. Property Owner

  • "Property was well located for us as we love walking."

    Scenery was beautiful and weather was great for March, lucky us! Inside of property could do with some updating and was fairly clean. Shame about the building work which was noisy and dusty when we chose to sit on the balcony. Would recommend permanently relocating the settee to be in front of the table and chairs as we banged our heads on the beams a couple of times. Downstairs smelt musty and damp despite the bathroom fan and us opening the windows. Had issue with hot water in shower a couple of mornings, not sure why as we understood the boiler being similar to one we have at home? All in all, we enjoyed our stay and thank you for sharing it with us.

    Thank you so much for your feedback! We’re hoping that the builder will have the retaining wall up very soon. - we’ll chase this. We’ve taken on board your other comments and will certainly look into them - thank you! Property Owner

    The Blue House was comfortable well equiped and in the light of Covid we all felt that all precautions taken were good and made us feel safe during our stay.

  • "Great quiet location in a private road."

    Very clean and comfortable. Good quality fittings, great shower and very handy for Tintagel village centre. Good communication with owner/manager, very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend staying here.

  • "A lovely place to stay, very homely and comfortable."

    We had awful weather while we were there but it was a lovely base to explore the surrounding area x

  • "The water pressure is very poor."

    If a toilet is flushed there is no water flow out of the taps for over 60 seconds. Plus the shower is therefore very weak. Otherwise everything else was great and we would recommend the property and location to others.

  • "The cottage was comfortable and convenient being right on the doorstep of Tintagel."

    The cottage is well equipped and the balcony was great as you could see the sea in the distance. The cottage has two comfortable double beds and some twin beds were did not need. The feel was homely and it had some good touches which made you feel comfortable and looked after. I would consider a return visit as it is located in a beautiful part of England

  • "The weather this year (2018) in Cornwall certainly made a huge difference."

    However, the Blue House was clean, with good facilities and very comfortable. We enjoyed eating out on the veranda looking out to the coast. The local property manager was very helpful and organised cleaning and bedding changes with us. Everything you want from a holiday cottage. Tintagel was a good base with small supermarkets, restaurants and takeaway food at hand and there are plenty of walks you can do from the cottage, we visited the tidal beach at Trebarwith which is lovely.

  • "Great location having stayed here twice speaks for itself."

    My only comment would be it’s a shame that no pets are allowed, would be more than happy to pay a premium for this service and I’m certain others would also.

  • "This is a good cottage in the perfect location within Tintagel - very central but also away from "street noise"."

    As others have said it is a little smaller than expected and the living space would be very cramped if fully occupied, but was good for two! The table has to be moved to sit at and then moved again to see the TV. As others have also said the WiFi is excellent and we were glad that we brought a laptop with us for iPlayer etc. as the TV reception was poor and failed during our stay. The owners arranged for a repair very swiftly when we contacted them though. It was good to have cleaning and washing products (washing-up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc.) provided. And there aren't two bathrooms Sykes - only one plus an upstairs toilet.

  • "Tintagel is very hussle and bussle during the day, but at night very quiet."

    There is only room for 1 car (which was stated in the details) but to help people out with 2 cars (rather than chasing round for change to pay at a NCP carpark which is unsecured), the field next to the cottage charges £10 for the week if you pay the farmer who owns the King Arthur museum up the road. We were told about this from a neighbour next to the blue house

  • "Lovely property, altho a little smaller than expected."

    Great contact from the owners. Amazing location, and great kitchen facilities. Awesome wifi, got the thumbs up from our teenager! Even better would be a proper washing line (not under the balcony) as I couldn't get clothes dry, and some seating in the garden downstairs would have been really good too.

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.
