The house was beautifully presented with first class facilities. Its a great location to explore North Cornwall.

the cottage is quaint and reasonable well furnished. Small enclosed garden,however, if you have a dog or dogs, beware the gate! -we had to secure it properly, the conservatory was the "most popular" part of the house as it is a lot lighter than the other parts - seating is a little lacking when 7 people try to sit "at once". The pubs are approx 20 Read moreMins away (by foot) Small but expensive food stores are in Tintagel, however large Tesco in Wadebridge. Lots of very interesting places to visit. Hide

Superb cottage in a splendid location, the family and the two dogs loved it! Tintagel is a very pleasant place to stay and was extremely dog friendly, would recommend both the cottage and its location.
