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.

  • Sleeps 2+2
  • Bedroom: 2 bedrooms – 1 double, 1 twin
  • 1 shower room

We enjoyed a weeks stay in this quaint cottage and loved our time there. The location is good for travel to other places and is only 15 minutes from some of the best beaches.

Very clean and comfortable and a good base to explore from. The pub up the road" Cornish arms" is excellent. The biggest drawback is how close the cottage is to a very busy main road. There is no footpath so you will need a torch for safety at night and difficult with a dog.

Very clean and comfortable. Well equipped. However we found it difficult with the dog because of the proximity of the road and limited outdoor space. I think those with small children would find it tricky as parking was not very near the cottage and you had to walk down a busy road with fast cars and no pavement.

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.
