The property

Just paces from the sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand is Smuggler's Cottage, a beautifully presented cottage offering cosy accommodation for two. Trebarwith Strand is an unspoilt cove on the north coast of Cornwall; Rugged Gull Rock creates a dramatic backdrop to the beach which at low tide extends for a mile under the vast cliffs which line this beautiful stretch of heritage coastline.

Foodies will be well catered for in Trebarwith, home to two cafes and a public house; The Port William which nestles into the cliff overlooking the beach and the highly regarded Mill House Inn and restaurant which is within 5 minutes walk. Trebarwith Strand is the ideal location to learn to surf with a surf school on the lifeguard patrolled beach whilst more extensive water based activities such as water skiing, sailing, diving and fishing trips are available on The Camel Estuary from the village of Rock, approximately 30 minutes by car. The South West Coastal path runs through the village and is perhaps at its most scenic heading east mystical Tintagel Castle is about a 25 minute walk. In the west, the quintessentially Cornish twin fishing villages of Port Isaac and Port Gaverne are worthy of a visit and may be recognised as the home of the television favourite Doc Martin! Those after more action packed fun will enjoy a day trip along The Camel Trail, a 17 mile cycle track which runs from Padstow along the Camel River.

Smuggler's Cottage has a lovely light and bright open plan living space with a wood burning stove to warm those cooler evenings. There is a well equipped compact kitchen to one side and a romantic bedroom to the other. The owners have provided some tasty goodies which await you on arrival. Parking is in a nearby car park where weekly tickets can be purchased.

About the location

TINTAGEL

Camelford 6 miles; Wadebridge 12 miles.

Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, whose ruins dominate the cliffside just outside the village, is a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. The surrounding area is dominated by the sea, rocky coves and stunning scenery. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must. For the energetic, the SW Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions it winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs for refreshment. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude, with their resort attractions, while the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Padstow and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive.
