  • "Once again, an amazing stay at Heightley House."

    The views, the cleanliness, the comfort and facilities at the house are the reasons we come back year after year. The views are just the best, and we love Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel. Thank you once again for a lovely stay, and thanks also to Rainbow for all of her hard work.

  • "Fantastic holiday in a comfortable well equipped house which catered for all we needed and with breathtaking views."

    3 very large bedrooms 1 king size and 2 twin rooms a fantastic log burner in the lounge and a large functional kitchen and dining area. The property is a little tired in places and could benefit from some modernisation, but very comfortable and full of Cornish charm. Views are stunning over the valley into Trebarwith. The owners have thought of everything when making this property available as a holiday let as it is so well equipped. Towels, linen, toilet rolls, cookware, cutlery, glasses, white good availability, logs for the fire plus all the outside furniture, bbq facilities for the summer period.

  • "Fantastic property loved the new improved bathroom."

    Very well equipped and clean. Second time at this property and hopefully will not be the last. Best property we've stayed in, location a bonus. Cannot find any negative things to say about this property.

  • "Really nice house with plenty of space to spread out and relax."

    There is an ironing board and tea towels even though we were informed there wasnt. Utensils in the draw and oven trays dirty/oily but a quick run through the dishwasher or wash up in the sink sorted that. Rooms tidy and had been hoovered around the main floor areas only, although maybe could do with the bag emptying as not sure how much it picked up. The kitchen appliances are top notch and very convenient so a real home from home to run a quick wash during your stay so maybe you dont have to pack so much and you could travel lighter. Some parking at the front but tight against the wall, traffic can whizz by a bit. However very adequate parking off the back road, enough for our Sorrento. The better way into Treknow is off the Tintagel road at the top of the village, rather than running the gauntlet up the hill from the Mill pub & restaurant. Very little passing and the main one half way up the hill has a massive pothole which could cause your car serious damage or you might not get out of. Location great with a beautiful view of Trebarwith Strand. Bit of a hike down across the fields and back but well worth it and you should definitely go home fitter than when you started. Tide information brilliant and the beach at Trebarwith when the tide is out is something to behold. Fab. Also swimming at high tide possible with care getting in down through the rocks and just being sensible. The Royal William pub there is also fab. Reasonably priced and just a general nice atmosphere and great food and drink. The seafood sharing platter and Cornish Guinness (Mena Dhu) was fantastic. We travelled out to Port Issac where they shoot Doc Martin - pretty but a bit whiffy. Padstow to dine at Rick Steins - nice but pricey and better food at The Royal William to be honest. Tintagel Castle, Backways Cove, along the coastal path - stunning. Convenience stores local in Tintagel limited, so maybe plan a supermarket delivery, depending on your stay. Or may be trip out to the Seaview farm shop - fantastic meat - burgers, sausages, bacon, steak etc.. Costs a bomb but delicious. Would highly recommend and return.

  • "Great location, best equipped kitchen we have had over 20 years - except why can we never get a non-stick frying pan?"

    Holiday breakfast fried eggs with bacon are a must-have! We wanted for nothing from the property. The walk down to the sea was simple enough - perhaps make this better known in the cottage info (unless I missed it) and would certainly advocate walking up to the coast path and watch the sun set on the horizon over the sea. Simply amazing.

  • "Heightley House is certainly one of the best if not the best property we have ever holidayed in."

    It was very well equipped,very clean and comfortable. The whole house was warm and welcoming the background heating and hot towel rail in the bathroom was much appreciated.I can't say anything was missing on the equipment front even Bonnie our Border Terrier was well catered for. The shower was wonderful, towels luxurious and the beds very comfortable.Even the neighbours were very friendly. We enjoyed the food at the Millhouse Inn and the Port William. We also visited all our usual haunts Padstow, Polzeath,Tintagel etc etc all within easy reach of the house. The peace and quiet of the houses position was much appreciated and the views were magnificent. Even the weather was kind to us. All in all a most wonderful relaxing holiday. I would love to know more of the history of the house it's origins,who it was built for ec Thank you Regards Maggie ,

  • "Lovely house, warm and comfortable."

    Well equipped kitchen and comfy beds. Few minutes walk down a foot path to beach, there are a couple of stiles to climb over but our 3 year managed it easily. The beach is sandy with lots of rock pools and a couple of caves. Great for children and good body boarding/surfing opportunities, but tide dependant. Lots of things to do around and about for trips.

  • "It was a lovely house in a fantastic location."

    The house had everything we needed. It was clean and tidy, plenty of towels. Our teenage son loved the bedroom on the top floor, as it had a tv so he could play on his xbox in the evening. We were able to do lots of walking with our dog and loved the Port William pub. We walked into Tintagel a few times from the house, its not far and took around 20 minutes.

  • "A delightful holiday house, which was extremely well equipped and felt like a home away from home."

    The location was close to the beach and Tintagel. As long as you are prepared for steps (front and back) and driving through some narrow lanes, you will be rewarded with a Cornish gem.

About the location


Boscastle 4.9 miles; Padstow 19.9 miles

This small village and civil parish lies on the north coast of Cornwall in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, some four miles north-west of Camelford. It boasts a slate quarrying history and was also once home to a small copper mine in the latter years of the 18th century. It has a village hall and small hotel, yet there is plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, which is dominated by glistening waters, rocky coves and spectacular scenery each way you turn. Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, is merely a stone's throw away, a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. 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. It is littered with pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must for any visitor. The South West Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions, it winds its way along the cliffs, down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the pretty village of Boscastle with its narrow valley leading down towards the raging sea. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude. The vast landscapes of Bodmin Moor, the largest indoor rainforest at the Eden Project and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive, plus the colourful harbour at Padstow beckons with traditional pubs and delicious seafood.
