Over a mile of golden sand the beach is washed twice daily by the incoming tide. At low tide there are rock pools and rock formations. Look out for the beautiful pink rock pools lined with quartz and ideal for children to explore.

Trebarwith is a great surfing beach, there is a Surf School for absolute beginners or those wishing to improve their techniques. Situated on the cliffs overlooking the beach is the Port William pub and restaurant. A fantastic place to sit and watch the sun set over this lovely beach.

Going in the other direction you come to Bossiney Cove, again a tidal beach but very popular with visitors and locals alike. Further on you reach Boscastle with it's beautiful harbour, shops and valleys. Stop and have a drink at the Cobweb Inn, famous for it's local beer and food.

Local Places of Interest: The Old Post Office is situated in the centre of the village. It is one of the most famous buildings in Cornwall and is full of charm and interest. Built in the 14th century it was originally a Manor House and then in 1844 was converted into a letter receiving office for the district. It is now owned by the National Trust and is open to visitors.

Tintagel Castle, situated on the dramatic coastline, is an awe inspiring and romantic place of legends. Joined to the mainland by a narrow neck of land, Tintagel Island is the remains of the medieval castle associated with King Arthur.

The remains of the 13th century castle are breathtaking. Steep stone steps, rugged walls and windswept cliffs encircle was remains of the Great Hall. English Heritage now care for this wonderful monument.

The perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Veronica Cottage was absolutely charming and modern. Close to town yet not so close that you were in the middle of the hustle and bustle. A 10 minute stroll and your in town center.

The cottage is clean and well- maintained. The only disappointment was there was not a tumble dryer as advertised. There is a launderette in town so we were able to dry the clothes there, but we were not counting on spending time doing this.

Pam, the owner, made sure we had everything we needed and was knowledgeable on things to do and see.

All in all, I would give this a very high rating and would stay here again.

Veronica Cottage

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the cottage was spotlesely clean. Tea, coffee, a pint of milk and shortbread biscuits had been kindly left for us by Pam. The cottage was a real home from home with everything you could possibly need provided and was the perfect base for visiting the many attractions North Cornwall has to offer.

Pam was very friendly and helpful recommending a dog friendly beach and finding out the times of low tide.

The cottage was a short walk of approximately five minutes to the local shops and pubs but in a lovely quiet area away from the noise of being right in the centre of Tintagel itself. Lots of dog friendly places to eat at for anyone visiting with a dog.

We would highly recommend Veronica Cottage to anyone visiting North Cornwall.

Julie, Lee and Dan.

A property not to be missed a real gem of an owner too. The complete package.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful clean and well maintained both inside and in the garden. The beds were comfortable and I slept better than I do at home. Pam is welcoming friendly and knowledgeable about the area, there on hand if you need her, but not intrusive What a lovely lady. We used the cottage as a base and explored around the area what a fantastic location close to many interesting places and not far from the local shop and Coast which is breath takingly exquisite. It was such a fantastic holiday we have decided we will move down when we retire as the pace of life is good and the local people friendly. We will definitely be back.

Wonderful, cosy, well appointed and very clean

  • 5 of 5

I had seen the property on my many visits to Cornwall, and had fallen in love , and when we had the chance to stay, magical, and we were not disappointed.

The house was very welcoming the moment we stepped through the front door, homely with out being cloying, very clean and well appointed with all you needed especially in the kitchen, but also the fact there were extra rugs if needed, brilliant, It was also good to know if we had any problems we only had to knock next door and Pam was there, but she never imposed on us. We only saw Mr Ginger in passing, as Bertie was with us, and Mr Ginger played his welcome very strategically, only being snuggled when Bert wasn't around (clever puss). Would we book Veronica cottage again, in a heartbeat, I loved it especially the window seat, also Bertie's favorite seat . Hopefully we'll be able to come next year , health and finances allowing. Thank you Pam for allowing us to stay in your beautiful house, and sorry for the delay in sending my review - Carol.

Veronica Cottage, a good place to discover Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 weeks stay in Veronica Cottage in Tintagel. This place full of history was a good starting point for many trips to interesting destinations all around here.

We started with the nearer environment like the local castle and the post office, we visited Boscastle, Padstow, Bodmin, did some cycling there (camel trail!) and visited the spacious and still in very good condition being Lanhydrock.

After that we also moved to locations in a bigger distance as Truro, Plymouth, Exeter, the Dartmoor and St. Michael’s Mount. Everywhere we liked to do geocaching, discovering places which we would not have seen without these hidden gems.

The cottage itself, lovingly maintained by Pam, had all we needed for a stay here, we never missed something for our daily life. Pam is an extremely friendly but never obtrusive lady who helped us with all our questions and gave us a lot of useful tips what to do here (camel trail was a good idea by the way!).

Thanks, Pam, we really enjoyed the stay here. Also all the best for Mr. Ginger who visited us from time to time and really enjoyed our caress.
