  • "Had a wonderful stay in this little cozy character cottage."

    Very clean, had everything we needed for a peaceful getaway. Within easy reach of Boscastle, Tintagel, Nectans Glen and Rocky Valley. The babbling brook goes right by the window. Will definitely be going back.

  • "The location was wonderful but the accommodation did not come up to our expectations."

    The following points were noted. 1, Room was cold and smelt slightly damp on arrival 2. There were no instructions for the cooker (we use gas) 3. the fridge had no freezer compartment and was rather small 4. The photos of the interior were misleading about the size of the building 5. The standard of décor was poor. This didn't distract from the stay but is worth mentioning as it may affect other guests. 6. We informed the owner, by phone, that we were leaving early due to the petrol crisis. We didn't expect a refund but a reply to our call would have been nice.

  • "The cottage is quaint and picturesque but is decidedly "cosy"."

    Although we knew there was a sofa bed, we did not know quite how little room there was. The cottage is quite cramped for space with two adults with luggage for a week, especially when the weather is not kind. We prefer mixer taps and the kitchen taps were very tight. Tintagel is probably the closest centre but offers little in the way of decent standard food outlets, unlike Boscastle, a little further away. The whole cottage remained dank, in spite of windows being open and central heating being on. Given its quaintness and the lovely gardens, it is a pity that it is let down by being rather uncomfortable. I also do not understand why there is a gate on the driveway, necessitating one person leaping out to open and close this in all weathers. Overall, a rather disappointing experience.

  • "Millstream in beautiful At Nectan's Glen surpassed our expectations at every level."

    Yes, the cottage is small but it has everything needed for a delightful short break away. The bed was comfortable, plenty of hot water and a full size bath, ideal for relaxing those aching muscles after a long hike on the stunning coastal path just minutes from the cottage. The gardens are simply gorgeous, as is the private woodland walk up to the waterfall. Robin (the owner) was most helpful in suggesting places to visit, where to eat and where to find the best views. The 2-hourly bus service between Truro and Bude stops very close to the cottage drive (very handy if you're of a certain age with bus passes like us!) During our stay we walked the coastal path every day bar one. From Rocky Valley to Tintagel (in both directions) is spectacular, as is the the path between Rocky Valley and beautiful Boscastle. We also got the bus driver to drop us off at Boscastle Farm Shop (wonderful cafe here) and walked back along the coastal path into Boscastle harbour. Only a relatively short walk with not as many 'ups and downs' but with the most glorious views.

    Robin was extremely kind and helpful and went out of his way to offer assistance when I lost a bag on the beach. I would recommend him as a superb host.

  • "Millstream cottage was the absolute perfect little romantic hideaway for a short trip."

    Nestled in the woods it is like something out of a fairy tale!! Great walks immediately near by and about a 30 minute walk into Tintagel (if you don't get distracted by the play park on the way home from the pub!). The cottage had everything we needed and acted well as a base for our other adventures as well having the lovely secluded patio to relax by the stream of an evening. Absolute bliss!

  • "Halgabron Cottages are just the best idyllic and secluded spot for a quiet and just lovely break."

    Set in wonderful grounds and easy access to walks along the Rocky Valley, St Nectan's Glen and down to the beach, we just had a simply wonderful break. The owner of the cottages is a lovely and accommodating person who was so welcoming and approachable. This was our honeymoon and we couldn't have picked a better spot for it. Superb all round!

  • "The mill cottage was so unusual!"

    It's in a lovely part of Cornwall within easy access of the sea and local amenities - only a mile from Tintagel. Very peaceful - just the sounds of the birds and the stream running by. Heavenly!

  • "Cannot recommend enough; everything was very organised; lights & heating thoughtfully on in readiness for our evening arrival, gorgeous cosy cottage."

    You know when booking that it's small, but everything is so well organised, there's no compromise; good storage, kitchen stocked with everything needed, easy to quickly heat to cosiness, & the sofa/bed is easy to assemble & properly comfortable. & 11/10 for location! Private patio & beautiful shared garden, both right on the stream and in n amazing location down the glen; owner there if needed but left us to it, all very peaceful, really felt it was "ours" for the week.

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.
