    “Very well equipped cottage with all cleaning products provided and things like kitchen foil and cling film.”

    We were left some cookies (I assumed as a welcome gift) but these were best before Aug 2021 and we stayed Oct 2021. Very tasty though! Plenty of crockery and cutlery - way more plates than you would ever use! Patio is a nice little sun trap which is enclosed and there are plenty of places around the cottage to hang damp wetsuits/towels etc. Please note that the garden itself is not enclosed and the property is on a fast road (the pictures don’t show this). We managed to use the bins and some ...

    We were left some cookies (I assumed as a welcome gift) but these were best before Aug 2021 and we stayed Oct 2021. Very tasty though! Plenty of crockery and cutlery - way more plates than you would ever use! Patio is a nice little sun trap which is enclosed and there are plenty of places around the cottage to hang damp wetsuits/towels etc. Please note that the garden itself is not enclosed and the property is on a fast road (the pictures don’t show this). We managed to use the bins and some spare patio slabs to section off the bottom bit of garden from the road. Would definitely suggest the owners add a gate here to make it much safer for kids and dogs. There is a recycling plant half mile down the road to take all recyclable materials and it would be useful if this was communicated somewhere. We googled it as didn’t want to put in the bin or take it all home with us. Would also be useful to have instructions for the storage heaters as we are only used to central heating. Spacious for 4 people but 6 would be a squeeze if you all wanted to sit in the lounge and watch a film together. The DVD is on the side of the TV as I’ve noticed a previous review said there wasn’t one in the lounge - there is. This cottage represented good value for money for us, but it could be so much better with more care and attention to detail. Things that could easily and quickly be improved are: new thicker curtains throughout, replace missing curtain in downstairs lounge, clean stains from mugs, set clocks to the correct time (none were right), clean dirt and dust from under the storage heaters and skirting. Other suggestions would be to make a cupboard under the stairs for storage rather than it all being piled up and visible. Not great for young kids or dogs. The twin bedroom next to the double bedroom also has a damp issue with the sheets smelling of damp and the wardrobe reeking of it. Luckily as a family of 4 we didn’t need to use this room. The drawers in the kitchen have also been hidden behind a cupboard door with chunks cut out for the hinges (to make it look all matching) which makes opening the drawers very difficult. These just need to be drawers. The downstairs shower had the unit to control the temperature outside of the shower cubicle. This needs moving inside so you can turn on/off and change temperature while in the shower. Being outside also means the shower hose has to go up and over the cubicle and then down to where it is held. This prevents you from moving it down much and it also keeps falling off the holder. Overall though, we enjoyed our stay and the inadequacies are reflected in the price.

The property

In the small hamlet of Trewarmett, and close to the rugged North Cornish coast, is this welcoming and homely semi-detached cottage.

Standing just over a mile from the surf and sand at Trebarwith Strand beach and less than two miles from historic village of Tintagel famed for the it’s myths and legends of King Arthur, the house offers comfortable accommodation spread over four floors and has impressive valley views.

Slate steps lead from the off road parking to the front door and beyond this there is an efficient kitchen and comfy dining room with TV and electric fire.

Open tread stairs lead to the lower ground floor where there is a sitting room with fireplace and French windows to the sun deck (with bench) at the rear.

Also on this level a shower room, perfect for rinsing sand and salt after a fun filled day at the beach before venturing upstairs.

Stairs from the ground floor lead up to three bedrooms; on the first floor a double with valley views and a twin plus a family bathroom plus separate WC.

Further steep stairs lead to the second floor and a twin room under the eaves with the same valley views and sea glimpses.

Outside the garden is terraced and on the lower level there’s a table and chairs ideal for soaking up the sun whilst dining alfresco.

Curlews is a cheerful and comfortable house in a wonderful location with the best or Cornwall’s stunning Northern coastline to explore, making it a brilliant base for families and couples alike, throughout the seasons.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
