Idyllic Holiday Cottage in an elevated position close to Trebarwith Strand beach

Family-friendly cottage in Tintagel
The cottage benefits from far reaching views across the sea and out towards Port Isaac. Parts of this characterful home date back 450 years and benefits from 2 generous sized bedrooms, a family bathroom with a bath/shower, spacious sized lounge, separate dining room and fully equipped kitchen, which leads on to a terraced garden at the rear, complete with seating areas. We believe we have created a calm, tastefully furnished and decorated space for our guests to enjoy and relax in. Guests have sole use and access to all rooms apart from a 3rd bedroom which is used for storage and locked at all times. The same applies to the garden and parking space. Off road free car parking, with space for 2 x standard Saloon cars. We are pet friendly and have a reasonable charge of £7.50 per dog, per night with simple House Rules. I provide towels incase of inclement weather, metal water/food bowls, poop bags etc. The garden is private and enclosed and has been tried & tested by our own K9s for escape routes, but we still request owners keep an eye on their pet when out in the garden. It is conveniently positioned, being within walking distance of the famous South West Coastal path and Tintagel, with its myths and legends of King Arthur and now its new footbridge opened only in August 2019. Boscastle, Port Isaac - home of Doc Martin, Bodmin Moor, Padstow, Poldark country are all easily accessible, making Trelake Cottage the perfect base. Many other famous attractions, such as the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Daphne du Mauriers Jamaica Inn are just a short drive away. For the more energetic guests there are many beaches nearby for surfing, body boarding and other water sports. Newly refurbished in 2019, a stay at Trelake Cottage is not to be missed. All local businesses have their own policies & procedures in relation to Covid-19 and we politely ask our guests to respectfully observe their policies. Visitors should check for further instructions. Many provide hand sanitiser at point of entry for customers use. Please check all websites of any hostelries & attractions to book a day & time slot to visit, when planning your holiday. This includes Tintagel Castle. Many of these can be planned and booked before your stay and in the busy times I would recommend it is worth contemplating doing this, not just for days out, but also meals out, just to avoid disappointment.
In a popular area for walkers and families alike, car parking in the nearby villages is well signed and ample, although in the height of season I would recommend going to the very popular villages of Boscastle & Port Isaac earlier rather than later in the day. It is worth noting that there is a short Taxi service which runs from The Old School House in Port Isaac to the car parks which are on the outskirts of the village and will cost a couple of pounds each. You may feel it is worth the cost once you have walked back up the hill from the heart of the village. Tintagel has access to several car parks within the village and parking is not a problem. We have a bus service which is prone to change to summer and winter timetables, with buses running every 2 hours. You will find the bus stop on the main B3263 road, near the turning for Treknow village. To catch the bus towards Wadebridge, you need to wait on the opposite side of the road to the brick bus shelter on the Tintagel bound side.
Popular walks in to Tintagel, beyond to Bossiney, St Nectans Glen and further on to Boscastle, although you may choose to catch a bus one way for this particular hike! In the other direction on the Coastal path, for hardened walkers you will find the coastal path to Port Isaac. This walk will take several hours one way and you will need to take refreshments as there is no where on the way to buy any, until you reach Port Gavern. Folk do definitely tend to only walk one way, as it is quite strenuous, so you will need to plot your bus route, or pre book a taxi. There are many Public Footpaths that criss cross the area.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include baths or showers and hairdryers.

This Tintagel cottage provides complimentary wireless Internet access. Smart televisions are featured in guestrooms. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or nearby; fees may apply.

5/5 Excellent

Cosy, quaint, characterful, spacious, secluded, comfortable and spotless are just a few adjectives that can be used to describe this cottage. We had the best time and the communication with the host couldn't have been more informative, helpful and professional. Trelake Cottage is an ideal location to explore this beautiful part of Cornwall. I can highly recommend this as a wonderful base for walkers both two and four legged.

Lovely, spacious cottage in great location
The cottage has plenty of space for a family - with a very large lounge area and a large, well equipped kitchen. Bedrooms are great too. All beautifully decorated throughout. Lovely garden too. Great walking from the front door and some good pubs etc in the area as well as great beaches. Highly recommended!

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cottage
This house was spotlessly clean and cosy. The information booklet provided went into great depth about the area including really interesting details on the history of the cottage itself. This was a lovely touch. The garden was delightful, as were the cows who peered over the fence at me one day. We enjoyed the easy access to the coastal paths and the local beach which gave us some fun days of boogie boarding. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

4/5 Good

Lovely short break at Treknow
Truly one of the best quality self catering cottages we have stayed at. Beautiful furnishings and decor and well equipped kitchen. Spotlessly clean and Karen was so helpful throughout our stay. The village is so pretty and well located for all the local beauty spots. We had a delightful stay.
