This delightful property has been lovingly furnished and is perfectly placed just two miles from the coast, nestled in an idyllic courtyard location in the grounds of the owners' home.

Enviably located just a few miles away from the historic village of Tintagel, this charming single-storey cottage provides the perfect base for exploring the Atlantic coast and all that North Cornwall has to offer with ease. And at the end of the day, a cosy wood burner and a comfortable bed are always waiting for you.

With its stylish open-plan layout, everything you need is at your fingertips in this attractive property. Every dinner prepared in the well-equipped kitchen is sure to be a success and can be enjoyed around the convenient dining table. Your evening’s entertainment is sorted – just sink into the sofas in the living area, put your feet up in front of the wood burner, and pop the TV/DVD on. A good night’s sleep is guaranteed in the serene king-size bedroom, and the cottage also benefits from a handy bathroom with a bath and WC. Outside, there is a small patio area with a bench, and guests have access to a shared 5-acre paddock with pretty scenery.

Just 3 miles away from the accommodation, set high on the cliffs of North Cornwall, lies the famous Tintagel, known for its breathtaking views, intriguing Arthurian legends, and a new 60-metre footbridge connecting the mainland to the island on which the spectacular Tintagel Castle can be found. Merlin’s Cave back down on sea level is also worth a visit. Elsewhere, if beaches are more your thing, don’t miss out on the golden sands and natural caves of Trebarwith Strand (2.5 miles). Whilst in the area, there’s plenty of traditional Cornish fishing ports to enjoy, such as Boscastle (5.5 miles) and Port Isaac (9 miles) – where TV’s Doc Martin was filmed!

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

Great location and a lovely cottage. The owners are friendly and helpful but not intrusive. If you love stargazing the sky has very little light pollution and is amazing. The field is great for dogs, walking round or sitting and enjoying the view. The barn is a great space with a pool table washing facilities and games. We would love to go back.

Lovely place with everything you need for your stay. Set a bit outside Tintagel so walking wasn't an option for us this time of year but only a few minutes drive to the main high street/Castle. The log burner made it extra cosy. Perfect place to explore the surrounding towns.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
