Bedrooms 5
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Large home (12-15) with hot tub, massive garden on the banks of the River Camel

Our home is set in a large landscaped plot overlooking and leading onto the River Camel. It is nestled in a protected valley with lush mature woodland all around and gives a great sense of privacy and a degree of remoteness but with the added benefit of being a very short walk to all the shops, pubs and eateries.

The property has landscaped and well cared for gardens of approximately 1 acre with garden seating, a natural fire-pit, and log chairs. Sit by a fire, watching and listening to the River Camel flow by. Alternately enjoy our massive balcony that overlooks the valley and the river, and has a huge BBQ and overhead retractable awnings - perfect for group get-togethers and social events.

Reflections is an upside down property with the majority of the bedrooms on the lower floor. The property sleeps 10-12 people perfectly with 5 bedrooms providing the ability to sleep up to 13 people with a second lounge that can also be converted into a bedroom to sleep a further 2 if required. One of these bedrooms is en-suite and one is equipped with a large heated state of the art waterbed. It is worth noting that although a large property Reflections has worked brilliantly for just one family at a time - the extra Lounge allowing children or teenagers to do their own thing and leave the parents the other side of the house.

All of our linen is 100% Egyptian cotton and a professional cleaning and laundry team ensure that the house is in perfect condition for each arrival. We have focused on making everything about Reflections the perfect blend between a holiday-let and a hotel. This includes a coffee machine, Bang & Olufsen entertainment systems, and hot tub.

The entire first floor of Reflections is wheelchair accessible including an upstairs bedroom as well as the kitchen, dining room, lounge, outdoor terrace and custom built, Doc-M spec'd shower room.

The property is equipped with a large, modern kitchen with high end appliances and coffee machine and dining room as well as 2 bathrooms, a large lounge with log burner and Bang + Olufsen sound system and a large DVD library, a large terrace overlooking The River Camel with ample seating and BBQ and an extended section of the house known as 'The West Wing' which contains a further lounge area and Hot Tub. A small gym, utility area and store for complimentary beach equipment (Wet suits / Body boards / Snorkeling equipment etc.) can be found in an adjacent outbuilding and is free for our guests to use.

We have onsite parking for up to 6 vehicles and we are an environmentally aware property, provide recycling bins for our guests to use and the majority of our electricity is provided by solar power.

The small historic market town of Camelford is a brief 5 minute stroll from the house and has multiple bars, restaurants and shops. The house is just a short drive from some of the best beaches and tourist attractions that North Cornwall has to offer - including world-class golf courses.

Fabulous multiple family holuday home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for our annual mass (4 families) Cornwall summer holiday. House and location fabulous. Loads of room inside and out for our party of 14 ranging from age 4-63yrs plus a dog! In fact the place is so big it was hard to find each other at times haha.. local shops/park/pub all within a 5-8 min stroll and all great. Kids loved the garden and paddling in the river. Grown ups loved relaxing and we all loved the hot tub. House had everything we needed for our stay. Tim was always on hand but we only needed his help once (locked out...our fault lol) We loved the house so much we are going back for summer 2017! See you then 😁

"Reflections" cottage in Camelford was the ideal property for a large get-together.

  • 5 of 5

I may not be here next Christmas due to a terminal illness and wanted to be with all my family and staying in Reflections fitted the bill. Don't hesitate to book this cottage as it was amazing and plenty of room for all 16 of us and a little dog. The property was really well maintained and superbly clean and tidy. Just check out the location, amenities and facilities and you won't be disappointed. The owner, Tim, was really friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay went according to plan. The hot tub was a huge hit with the grandchildren and adults alike. I would love to live in a property like this - a dream home. I would highly recommend this property to all my friends and relatives.

Great property for large group

  • 4 of 5

This is a brilliant house for a large group. We visited as a group of 3 families with mixed age children. The separate downstairs lounge was perfect as a children's retreat that gave the adults some peace in the evenings! Beautiful garden leading down to the river. Easy walk into Camelford & to The Masons Arms which is the local pub serving fantastic food. The property is very well equipped. The hot tub is a nice touch & great to relax in after a busy day out exploring.

Couldn't ask for more - Beautiful Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5

“Couldn't ask for more - beautiful holiday home!”

We stayed here with children and two little dogs. What an amazing find! This home is beautifully kept. Clean and spotless with everything you could ever need ... Nothing has been overlooked. The hot tub has the most amazing view. The grounds are stunning and the home so comfortable. We loved it. Owner very friendly and available with tips and recommendations. The local pub The Masons Arms was serving delicious fresh food and the Take AWay fish and chip shop was delicious too. Pure perfection this little gem! We will be back!
