  • “The cottage is detached along a private track, about 100 metres off the main road between Tintagel and Boscastle.”

    There is little road noise. It is in a very attractive position at the head of St Nectan’s Glen; the start of a beautiful walk to the waterfall. Almost directly across the road is the footpath to Rocky Valley, a wonderful walk that opens out after one kilometre onto the sea and coastal footpath. Although it is possible to use footpaths to walk into Tintagel, we chose to travel in by car. Tintagel is about one mile away, while Boscastle is no more than about 3 miles. Even in early June, ...

    There is little road noise. It is in a very attractive position at the head of St Nectan’s Glen; the start of a beautiful walk to the waterfall. Almost directly across the road is the footpath to Rocky Valley, a wonderful walk that opens out after one kilometre onto the sea and coastal footpath. Although it is possible to use footpaths to walk into Tintagel, we chose to travel in by car. Tintagel is about one mile away, while Boscastle is no more than about 3 miles. Even in early June, carparks were very busy but not full. The cottage is in a ideal place to visit this part of the Cornish coast. The coastal path is close. Padstow (45 minutes) and Port Isaac ( 30 minutes) are nearby and we were lucky enough to catch one of the free Friday night performances by Fishermans’ Friends on the beach at Port Isaac, We were received warmly by Mr Evans who resides in a neighbouring house. He gave us a useful introduction to the cottage and immediate surroundings. The weather unfortunately was very cool and wet for the time of year and we made use of the wood burning stove (3 day supply of wood) to supplement the radiators. It is a compact, clean, comfortable cottage and fine for two people. It has a good range of cooking facilities, proficient WiFi and TV, hot water in abundance, shower and bath. The bedroom however has low headroom and is cramped. It would be a particular challenge for anyone tall or with mobility issues. There is limited storage upstairs and it is supplemented by a wardrobe downstairs. Parking is adjacent to the cottage; a big bonus after some other cottages we have rented. We thoroughly enjoyed our one week in the cottage. The British weather tested the cottage (and ourselves), but it responded to the challenge with flying colours.

Halgabron Mill

Tintagel 1 mile. This one time corn mill is situated in atmospheric St Nectan’s Glen, a densely wooded valley and an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, sat between the villages of Tintagel and Boscastle. Set in 20 acres of garden and woodland, the cottages have been converted from the former mill buildings and millworkers’ homes - each individually designed to retain their character. Visitors will enjoy the woodland, lawns and sitting areas next to the old mill stream. The perfect base for a restful holiday!

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.
