About the property

Split level 3 double bedroom house

Trevalsea has three double bedrooms and comfortably sleeps six people. It is ideal for families but also suits a couple or friends wishing to spend a peaceful holiday but be within easy reach of Cornwall's many attractions. With the exception of a downstairs double bedroom (bunk beds and a convertible sofa) and WC, all the accommodation is on one level and consists of a kitchen, bathroom with separate WC, a separate shower unit, living room and two further double bedrooms (one double, one twin). All bedrooms have hand basins. There is a balcony accessed from the living room, which offers spectacular views of the valley and out to sea. Outside, there is a paved patio and access to the sloping garden. The house has sufficient night storage heaters to ensure a cozy visit at any time of year. Linen is provided and all beds will be made up for arrival. There is off road parking at the front of the property and further parking across the road. Electricity is included in the rental charge

Trevalsea has been a family holiday home for many years, and we very much welcome visitors both new and old. The house has numerous books, maps and leaflets about things to do, places to visit and places to eat. Two large scale walking maps of the area are pinned up in the hallway.

Five favourite local things to do -

Walk along the beach at Trebarwith Strand, if you are lucky with a good low spring tide there is over half a mile of beach to stroll and life guarded swimming areas in the season. Children and adults can be kept amused for hours.

High tide and a rough sea? Then watch the waves crashing on to the rocks or retreat inside the Port William, probably the best situated pub in Cornwall, for a cold or warm beverage and watch.

Trebarwith too busy? Walk to Backways Cove just over the hill and normally have this tranquil valley and rocky cove all to yourselves.

Walk part of the North Cornwall coast path, just pick a section. Trebarwith to Tintagel is great, or for a real work out, Trebarwith to Portgaverne, only 5 miles but 6 valleys to descend into and climb back out of on the way. Allow 4 hours for this one, but it really is spectacular and there is no other road down to the coast until you get to Portgaverne.

After a busy day or just because you deserve it, relax on the balcony with a drink or a meal enjoying the beautiful view, the peace and a sunset.

Though the house does not have specific disabled facilities, having two of the bedrooms, the lounge, kitchen, bathroom and balcony on the entrance floor makes it convenient for anyone who is elderly or infirm. The off road parking at the front is sloping but this leads onto a flat area to reach the front door. PLEASE NOTE The balcony at the back of the property is enclosed with railings but we would recommend that younger children are supervised at all times when using it.

very comfy and handy to many points of interest.

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I stayed at Mike Stokes' very comfortable home at Trevalsea, near Tintagel, and we enjoyed it a lot. The house has everything that one might need, and is high up on a promontory with a lovely view out over the coast of Cornwall. It is close to the small oceanside town where Doc Martin is filmed, and to other lovely beach villages with plenty of nice pubs.

We would highly recommend this property.

A great cottage to relax, beautiful sea view.

  • 5 of 5

The owners of the cottage are very good and flexible when doing the booking. Don't be put off by the mobile phone reception, you will get a strong wifi signal all around the house …. so, you will be able to contact you loved ones either by Facetime, Viber, and send pictures and texts with Whatsapp. You will enjoy watching the stunning view from the living room and bedrooms. You won't have time to get bored, the cottage is well situated to visit most north cornwall attraction. I really enjoyed my stay in Trevalsea, and I am sure you will enjoy it too.

Beautiful location, perfect break

  • 5 of 5

Just a really pleasant stay in Trewarmett. The owners are very welcoming and flexible about booking request. The view from the living room and bedrooms is beautiful, you just can't get enough of it. Mobile phone reception is not so good (common problem around North Cornwall) but don't be put off by it because the property has a very strong wifi signal…so you will be able to reach you loved one either by FaceTime or Viber, and Whatsapp for sending photos and messages. You won't have time to get bored, there is so much to explore and discover around this place. A good little place to discover North Cornwall.

Toller Ausblick, geräumiges Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus, an der Durchgangsstraße nach Tintagel gelegen, ist sehr geräumig und mit allem Notwendigen ausgestattet.

Der Ausblick vom Balkon auf den Trewarmett-Strand ist ganz toll und bei klarem Wetter kann man den Sonnenuntergang überm Meer sehen.

Einzig der Weg zum Strand (ca. 1,6 mi) ist nur entlang der Straße möglich, wir haben keinen weiteren Fußweg zum Strand gefunden.

Die Gegend ist noch nicht so touristisch überlaufen, wie der Süden von Cornwall und abends lohnt sich der Weg hinab zum "Strand" (bei Flut nur Felsen), um einfach aufs Meer zu schauen.

Wir haben uns hier sehr gut erholt. Einzig die lange Anfahrt zu den südlich gelegenen Sehenswürdigkeiten (St Michaels Mt, Landsend, St Yves) war nervig, da der Urlaubsverkehr auf den wenigen Nord-Süd-Straßen sehr stark war. Die "hochgelobten" Kreisverkehre waren oft überlastet und führten zum Stau.

St. Michaerls Mt sollte man gesehen und erwandert haben, St Yves und Landsend - na ja, total überlaufen. Da haben uns Boscastle und Port Issac mehr gefallen. Als Geheim-Tipp - das Dartmoor. Vorsicht allerdingsbei den Eintrittsgeldern und den enormen Parkgebühren.

Trotzdem war es ein sehe schöner und erholsamer Urlaub.

Car: recommended

Trevalsea is a superbly positioned, deceptively spacious, split level house in the small village of Trewarmett. Situated at 350 feet it has stunning views over Trebarwith valley to the sea. Trewarmett is less than 2 miles from Tintagel (for nearest provision shops) and within 5 miles of Boscastle and Camelford. With easy access to the beautiful and rugged North Cornwall coast, there is something for all the family - sandy beaches, such as Trebarwith Strand (a 1 mile drive or walk way), Bossiney and Polzeath, the fishing villages of Port Isaac (Port Wenn in TV series Doc Martin) and Padstow, Boscastle with its Elizabethan harbour and Tintagel, the legendary home of King Arthur. Also locally, visit Camel Valley vineyard or, the real star of the area, walks along the unspoilt coast and valleys or get away from it all on Bodmin Moor. Further afield are attractions such as The Eden Project, reachable within an hour by car. We would recommend a car but there is a bus stop in the village, though services are not frequent, and there are also several local taxi services.
