Property code: JESSC

Character cottage situated perfectly for panoramic views over the rolling fields and out to Port Isaac. Located on the B3314 between two of Cornwall's most popular destinations Tintagel and Port Isaac.

Sat between historic Tintagel and the famous seafood haven of Padstow, Jessamine Cottage invites you to drift into ‘holiday mode' and discover North Cornwall. From the moment you're greeted by the charming stone facade, this traditional period cottage feels homely and secluded: a bolthole to retreat to when the day's adventure is done. Wake up the next morning to sea views from the master bedroom luring you out of bed for breakfast in the sunshine.

Romantic rusticity is retained by original features such as the stonework surrounding the fireplace, and the exposed beams throughout. Soft warm tones and comfy furnishings are enhanced by the fuzzy glow of the wood burner, where you can snuggle down with a hot chocolate and a DVD on chilly evenings. Enjoy a home-cooked supper at the farmhouse-style kitchen table, or alfresco while soaking up sea views from the courtyard.

A pub is within an easy stroll at under 100 metres away, while a wider array of eateries and attractions await in the fishing village of Port Isaac, a 3-mile drive. Here you can explore local galleries and craft shops, take a boat trip, or embark on a fishing expedition and bring home something to sizzle on the BBQ during summer months. Walkers can join the stunning South West Coast Path here, or head 7 miles inland to the wild and wonderful, Bodmin Moor. Get stuck into water-sports in Rock (8 miles away), or delight in the culinary treasures of Padstow, a 15-mile drive.

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

The cottage was clean, tidy and well stocked. It had a nice log burner which was very pleasant in the evenings. The furnishing were comfortable including the bed which is very important. The cottage was located about 200 metres from a pub which had great food, beer and was very friendly.

This was a cosy cottage but due to the busy road you had to earache the road all the time . If your elderly slow at walking or have kids it could be difficult but saying that there arent any paths any way and if you have a torch and wear bright clothing it shouldnt be a problem

Cottage almost perfect. On busy road with no parking, but space available in pub car park. Once inside the cottage you forget all that when curled up with a glass of wine by the wood burner

The cottage was really lovely, comfortable & cosy the only down side was it's on a busy B road. And with only a grass verge leading to the pub car park it was tricky especially with a dog. Having said that it really was a lovely stay & full credit to the owners.

Lovely cottage and a great centre for exploring that part of Cornwall. Everything was as described. Great views from the bedroom. The only downside was the location in that the road is very busy and at times dangerous. It is not easy loading or unloading the car and traffic passes by at speed. Walking to the pub to park the car, for a meal or a driRead morenk is not without risk. Take a torch. Hide

Spotlessly clean with excellent facilities within. 2 miles out of Port Isaac which was a little too far out for us on reflection so wouldnt stay again but only due to proximity to amenities.

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.
