A characterful cottage for a family or couples to explore the north Cornwall coastline with beaches and pretty fishing villages.
Itchingstone Cottage is a delightful 300 year old stone cottage tucked away in a little rural hamlet on the outskirts of Camelford. The intriguing name comes from the granite post on the front path where the cows used to stop and have a scratch! Just 5 miles from the fabulous north Cornwall coastline, it is perfect for two couples or a family looking for a warm, cosy, traditional Cornish cottage. It is full of character with beams, lovely original flagstone floors, a large inglenook granite fireplace with a cosy wood burner, and farmhouse style kitchen/dining room with a huge Aga and scrubbed pine dining table. Upstairs, the bedrooms are well decorated with stylish Victorian style feature brass bedsteads and sumptuous mattresses. The bathroom upstairs features a fabulous double-ended roll-top bath, whilst downstairs the shower room has a double size enclosure with a drench shower.
Located just outside Camelford in the little rural hamlet of Trevia, the cottage is perfectly positioned for touring the whole of Cornwall.
