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.

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.

Outstanding cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and outstanding cottage just on the edge on Tintagel, within easy walking distance of all that the village has to offer.

The cottage offered excellent facilities, a real home away from home, we were given a very warm welcome, the owner was most accommodating with out earlier than estimated arrival on the Saturday and it was an absolute pleasure to meet Mr Ginger.

Veronica cottage is maintained to a very high standard and exceptionally clean and very well equipped, due to the time of the year not everything in the village was open but the local shops offering locally sourced produce was refreshing and the King Arthurs Inn does exceptionally good food and of course the Cornish pasties are a must!

A lovely cottage in a quiet peaceful area.

  • 5 of 5

We (wife, daughter, husband grandson and dog) stayed for Christmas 2016. The owner (Pam) had decorated the house and we had a Christmas tree. It really set the scene for Christmas. The cottage was lovely and warm. Unfortunately I had a bad cold and had to return home early. But my daughter and family stayed on .

Thank you Pam for making our Christmas special. Roland and Julie.

Veronica Cottage, Tintagel, Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

What a cosy cottage Veronica Cottage was! We stayed for a week from 5th to 10th December so ready for winter weather and on arrival the cottage was lovely and warm with some provisions provided by our host Pam for us to relax and wind down with after a long drive from the North West. The cottage was well furnished, very clean and very comfortable. We were three minutes from the village centre with several cosy pubs to eat and relax in, and 10 minutes to the numerous cliff walks with our two dogs, who both loved it as well as we did !

Great property with a fab location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely short stay in Veronica Cottage. The cottage is family friendly - we travelled with our 10 year old son and his friend. The property was very clean and in good condition and made very homely with furnishings and equipment. The property overlooks a field and was very quiet. It was a few minutes walk to the village centre and about 10 minutes to the ticket office for Tintagel Castle. We all had a lovely time at the castle and the cove - fantastic views. The King Arthur pub was great - we ate there a couple of times - very generous portions - the staff were all very friendly. We also enjoyed a day at St Michael's Mount - about 1.5hrs in the car. We would highly recommend the cottage to other holidaymakers. Thank you Pam for a lovely stay. Mr Ginger (the cat) also came to visit us!

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.
