Tintagel is a small holiday town famous for King Arthur’s castle and offers much in the way of historic interest. There are several shops here and many pubs and cafes offering a good selection of places to eat out. And of course the Old Post Office which is a fascinating glimpse into a past way of life.
Most of our holiday properties are situated in the small village of Trebarwith Strand about 3 miles from Tintagel by road and connected by the coastal path, which surrounds Cornwall. The coast path is easily accessible offering lovely walks with beautiful cliff scenery. Trebarwith is a valley with one road leading to a sandy beach. There are two car parks making this beach easy to get to. At high tide, the beach is completely covered ensuring up to a mile of clean sand at low tide. There are two pubs in Trebarwith both offering good meals. The Port William overlooks the bay and the Mill House is set in a wooded valley.
Just a mile up the road is the village of Treknow which overlooks the Trebarwith valley. Properties here are between 10 and 20 minutes walk from the beach.
Trewarmett is also about a mile from the beach. Properties here nestle the hillside and generally have spectacular views over the Trebarwith valley.
Trebarwith Village is a mile or so the other side of the valley. Properties here are very quiet with unsurpassed sea views.
Trevillick is between Trebarwith and Tintagel and properties in this hamlets offer easy access to the coast path for walking.
There are several good sandy beaches within easy driving distance, Daymer Bay, Polzeath, Bude and Widemouth Bay to name but a few. Boscastle and Port Isaac offer fishing and sailing trips. Excellent golf facilities exist in nearby Camelford, Rock and Launceston. Cycle along the Camel Trail (cycle hire available in Wadebridge and Padstow). Visit the wonderful Eden Project, about 45 minutes by road. There are a host of tourist attractions all within easy reach for days out from Lands End to West Devon, and Bodmin Moor is only five miles away.
