The property

Tintagel 1.6 miles.

Ocean Retreat at Trethevy, a welcoming single-storey, semi-detached cottage, sits halfway between Tintagel and Boscastle on the coast road overlooking the sea, with Rocky Valley in the foreground and the famous St Nectan’s Glen and waterfall behind.

This Tintagel cottage is an ideal holiday retreat for a family or two couples, and is comfortably furnished with an open plan living area plus two king-size double bedrooms, both boasting panoramic sea views and one with an en-suite, along with a cosy children’s bunk room.

Nearby Tintagel is the home of the legendary King Arthur, where the castle ruins dominate the headland.

Tintagel has several restaurants and pubs, and a visit to the Old Post Office (NT) is a must.

Boscastle, to the north of this Tintagel cottage, is a small charming historic fishing village with restaurants, pubs and an excellent National Trust Visitor Centre and cafe.

This Tintagel cottage overlooks the South West Coast Path and this trail, for the energetic, showcases in full glory the stunning cliffs, beaches and rugged coastal scenery that are so abundant in this part of Cornwall.

There are two beaches within walking distance, while the surfing beaches of Trebarwith Strand and Polzeath are to the south, with Crackington Haven and Bude to the north; all within 30 minutes’ drive.

Port Issac (of Doc Martin fame), Padstow (closely linked with Rick Stein) and the Eden Project can be reached just as easily and are not to be missed.

At the end of a day exploring the area around this lovely Tintagel cottage, enjoy a BBQ in the rear courtyard, or just unwind and relax on the front terrace, watching the sun go down over the sea.

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.
