  • "Parwin is a lovely holiday cottage and is spacious, well maintained and lovely especially for 8 people and 2 dogs!"

    It's set in a lovely area only a short 30minute walk from Tintagel and a beach which also have 2 pubs close by. It has lovely scenery and is nice and quiet which is great for a few days away with the family. Its also perfect for driving to other towns close by including Bude, Newquay, Boscastle and Port Isaac. Cannot fault the property really in anyway it was maintained to a high standard and ticked all our boxes for comfort, facilities and space! If there are any criticisms it might be the road that leads towards the beach is a bit of a nightmare being a steep single road with few passing places so be aware it would be better coming from the Tintagel side. Also, another niggle, is the distinct lack of parking for 2 cars for we literally could not park at the allocated space at the garage at the rear and the rest of the area was parked up however we were fortunate there were no other cars at the other property across the road which allowed both cars to park! Overall, despite the niggles, Parwin is accurately described and we would look to book again in the future!!

  • "Such a lovely property!"

    Really nice location very close to Tintagel and nice pubs in walking distance. We had a small issue trying to work out the hot water initially as the boiler seemed to have lost pressure but very quick fix and the showers were lovely! You will need to bring throng like oil, salt, pepper. But otherwise kitchen was well equipped. Would definitely recommend, really nice being sat around the fire in the evening. Thank you for a great stay.

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. So glad you enjoyed your stay Best wishes Property Owner

  • "Nicely done cottage."

    Well kitted out. Comfortable for us all (3 generations ). Spacious bedrooms upstairs. We did arrive when it was dark on the Friday, so negotiating the steps with no outside lighting was tricky. Grandad stood with a torch! The walk to the port William pub was not ideal, goes across field, skinny slippy path - I would want to attempt that loaded up with towels for a day at the beach in the summer!! Enjoyable 30 minute coastal walk to Tintagel. Tight parking outside for 1 car only.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are delighted to hear your family enjoyed your stay at Parwin. The bulb has been replaced on the outside light - thank you for bringing this to our attention! Property Owner

    Would have been snug in lounge with 8 people and outdoor area very small but more than made up by such close proximity to spectacular cliffs on the coast path. Great place to stay and had a wonderful week !

  • "We had a lovely family holiday."

    3 generations under 1 roof! Kitchen/diner was superb and we enjoyed the garden and bbq. Both bathrooms were very nice and beautifully clean. Only problem was the on road parking which was often tricky as we had a 9 seater vehicle! Upstairs bedrooms were large, light and airy, but I felt the ground floor bedroom was really too small to accommodate 2 people.

  • "Lovely cottage, parking problematic but not impossible."

    The local beach is pretty and accessible on foot with a steep climb back up the hill over stiles (not suitable for push chairs). It’s a little remote but Bude, Tintagel, Padstow and Newquay all within easy reach. Would go back.

  • "The description of the cottage was really not accurate it’s not walking distance to the pubs and beach, well it is apart from the fields, steep hill, stile , rocks, car parks then back up a road, or a dangerous walk down the road, more of a hike, than a walk."

    The down stairs was fine but the 3 bedrooms upstairs are very damp and smelly, made all our cloths smell musky, and no amount of bags of lavender in the wardrobe will help, the house was quite dusty which made one of the guest ill and a trip to boots for some antihistamine. The house could be beautiful although old and very pretty it needs a few more home improvements, and updating, the bathrooms were lovely, as well as the kitchen which had everything you need.

  • "The cottage itself was amazing."

    However I was disappointed with the responses I got from Sykes when I made a query about directions. I felt that my query wasn't adequately answered and the responses were quite rude. As if I was stupid to even ask. I think Sykes added a negative aspect to the booking procedure and in future I would prefer to book with a different agent or avoid agents altogether.

  • "We had a good week at the cottage my main criticism is that in the living room the throw overs used on the sofas smelled of dog & so did the rug on the floor which was a bit off putting for my young grandchildren."

    Also the wardrobes upstairs had an odour which could be just that the cottage is old but it made my grandchildren’s clothes smell & they all had to be rewashed. I do appreciate that you do rent to people with pets & I may need to consider this when booking. However even though I had a couple of issues above the amenities at the cottage was great. The kitchen was ideal for great family nights & sitting in front of the log burner when watching tv with the kids was a lovely treat. Overall we had a very good week & the location of the cottage was superb.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. The points raised have been discussed and taken on board by the owner. They have already taken action to re-seal the wardrobe, and replace some of the soft furnishings in the lounge. I am glad you had a good week and would love to welcome you back Property Owner

  • "When we arrived at 5pm the cottage had not been prepared ."

    ..cleaned etc. There was dirty linen on the bathroom floor. We rang the housekeeper who came in about an hour and we left her to clean for 2 hours. She did a great job but in the current covid climate we were shocked that this could have happened. What if we had arrived at 10pm? Surely a place is cleaned as soon as the last client checks out.? She blamed Sykes for not informing her of the booking ... it was made 2 days before... so no excuses. You need to sharpen up.

  • "The location was perfect, albeit the house is set down from the road, so some improved information on access would be good."

    The house name can not be seen from the road, so a precise location position drawing would be useful, unfortunately the post code covers all of Treknow.

    Plenty of space for the 8 of us aged from 9 to 84! Easy if steep walk to a fantastic beach ( 2 hours before and 2 hours afte low water). Fabulous location with plenty to do, from surfing and body boarding to visiting mystical Tintagel - an exciting walk along the coast path for the boys- and enjoying glorious Lanhydrock estate. We even made a day trip to St Ives, where everyone loved the Tate and the boat trip to seal island. Perfect destination for an all age family holiday.

The property

Located in the peaceful hamlet of Treknow, Parwin is a charming cottage, just half a mile from the rugged north Cornish coast near Tintagel.

Full of character, it has been carefully renovated and offers a comfortable stay in this beautiful part of Cornwall.

Approached via five steep stone steps (with a rope handrail), the entrance hall leads to a cosy sitting room furnished with comfy, squashy sofas and a warming wood burner; the perfect place to snuggle up after a day out walking the coast path.

The pretty, pale blue country kitchen diner offers a wonderful place to gather at meal times, and provides direct access to the courtyard garden.

Two king size rooms (one on the ground floor with an en-suite shower room) and two twins provide flexible accommodation for friends and family holidaying together.

The courtyard garden to the rear of the cottage is a lovely spot for a barbecue; sheltered and enclosed, it is a real suntrap and a great asset for those with children and pets.

The patio courtyard has a drop of 2.5 ft to the BBQ therefore toddlers need supervision.

Out and about, there is much to see and do; don't forget to pack your beach towel, and stroll down to the beach at Trebarwith.

With lifeguard service and a surf school during the summer months, this beach is very popular with families, and allows dogs throughout the year.

The local area is a rambler’s paradise, with mile upon mile of coastal footpath to explore, as well as the wild and romantic Bodmin Moor just a short drive away.

There are also several championship golf courses nearby, as well as Tintagel Castle and a number of quintessentially Cornish harbour villages including Port Isaac, the setting for ITV's Doc Martin.

Just a short distance from the cottage are two lovely village pubs, one of which (The Port William) offers wonderful panoramic views of the cliffs and beach below.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

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.
