What a lovely holiday!
We had a really great time in Tintagel. We arrived to a yummy cream tea and our host was welcoming and friendly. My father-in-law enjoyed chatting with her about her beautiful garden. The cottage had all we needed and was perfectly placed to walk into Tintagel. The area and scenery was beautiful. Highly recommend Tintagel Brewery Bistro, just 10 mins up the road for great food!

Review of property
A beautiful character cottage which exceeded expectation. The location was fantastic, close to public footpaths to castle, headland and beach and beautiful village - brilliant shops and bakeries for morning croissants! A fantastic location to visit nearby beaches of Trebarwith and Bossiney/Benoath. Daymer Bay worth a visit. All beaches dog friendly. A wonderful host with Pam whose welcome and care throughout made for a wonderful holiday!

Veronica Cottage Tintagel
We spent a fabulous week in this delightful cottage, it was every thing we hoped for and more. It is very comfortable & well equiped. It has a beautifully manicured garden which was lovely to sit with a drink & watch the sun go down. Pam the owner left us a lovely welcome card and delicious scones with jam & clotted cream. We will definatly be back.

What an amazing find! Veronica Cottage is spotlessly clean and well equipped with all you need. and, importantly, the beds are really comfortable 😀😀!! Perfectly situated with a 5 min walk into Tintagel and central enough to explore this lovely part of Cornwall, we couldn't have asked for anymore. Thank you Pam, for letting us stay at your lovely cottage, see you again soon hopefully!!

Lovely cottage
Lovely cottage only a 5 minute walk to Tintagel town. Didn’t want for anything, slight damp smell in the ground floor bedroom but could be due to the age of the property. Would stay again if visiting this part of Cornwall.
