Beautifully equipped very large family home in a wonderful location. Loved the facilities that made it a real home from home! Very close to great coastal paths for quality dog walking.

Characterful cottage in a lovely location - a short walk to meet the cliff top walks, made this a great place to stay for a mixed age group with dogs. It has a warm and homely feel to the place and we settled in quickly and all slept extremely well. Very enjoyable location for a short break.

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
