Stunning uninterrupted moorland views over lake and Rough Tor

Adults-only cottage in Camelford
Mabel's Cottage offers a delightful rural retreat located on the edge of the moors and yet is only a few miles from the beautiful North Cornish coastline. The well known Port Isaac, Tintagel and Boscastle are all close by, along with the beautiful beach at Trebarwith Strand, and wonderful walks such as the Camel trail and St Necten's Glen to name but a few!
Climb the Tor, meet the local sheep, cows, chickens and ponies, listen to the birdsong. We have swallows nesting in the summer and the famous starling murmurations fly overhead twice a day from mid October until early spring. A real sight to behold.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers DVD players and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils. Bathrooms include a shower.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

Property conditions & facilities

5/5 Excellent

5 star perfection
Mabel cottage is an amazing property surrounded by beautiful and peaceful scenery. The cottage was well presented, spotlessly clean with lots of little extras provided including large fluffy bath towels. The conservatory was cosy and warm for enjoying the dark skies and tranquility. Lots of places to visit in the area with plenty of walking opportunities. We hope to revisit next year

5/5 Excellent

Superb location with fantastic hosts
Lovely property, was such a nice way to relax and enjoy the north Cornwall area. Hosts were amazing and very welcoming.

5/5 Excellent

Mabel's Cottage
Extremely clean and comfortable cottage, giving good access to surrounding places of interest like Port Isaac and the Jamaica Inn. There were beautiful views from the back of the cottage and lovely walks. The owners were always there if needed and the cottage contained everything you could want for your stay.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful cottage
Wendy and John made us very welcome. The cottage was spotlessly clean and there was everything we needed and more. We enjoyed the conservatory and the view across the lake also sitting on the viewpoint in the garden watching the swallows and the rabbits. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the scones, jam and clotted cream were very enjoyable. We would not hesitate to recommend Wendy and John’s cottage.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect to be away from it all
This property has everything you could want and is furnished and decorated to a very high standard, we particularly liked the conservatory and the views across to the reservoir which seemed to change almost every minute. It is off the beaten track, with a 3.5km or so journey along very rural single track Cornish lanes. We eat out in the day so we could enjoy our evenings in with no Internet or phones to distract you from the peace and quiet. The hosts are lovely people who take care to ensure your privacy and leave a very nice cream tea in the fridge on arrival day.
