Surfing beach at Trebarwith Strand is just 1 mile, and the Coastal Path, Boscastle, Tintagel, Port Isaac, and Rock’s ferry to Padstow are all easily accessible.

These two stone built holiday cottages (ref 29227 and ref TJU) date back to the 17 century and enjoy a rural location with superb sea views. Pet-friendly Downhouse Cottage was extended in Victorian times, while Downhouse has a rustic feel with a clome oven in the fireplace and a large garden. Both cottages benefit from a sitting-out area with stunning views of the coastline. Surrounded by countryside, they are perfect for walkers to enjoy the views from the South West Coastal Path. Ideally situated for visiting some of the many attractions of Cornwall, including Tintagel, the mythical home of King Arthur, Boscastle with its harbour and Port Isaac, made famous by the TV’s ‘Doc Martin’. Further down the coast are Polzeath with its surfing beach, and Rock where you can take a ferry across to Padstow with its array of interesting shops, pubs and restaurants, including Rick Stein’s famous restaurant.. Beach 1 mile. Shops, pub and restaurant 1 mile. The properties can be booked together to accommodate up to 9 guests.

    Perfect for a 4 night Xmas break with friends. Lovely location with great access to Padstow/Port Isaac/Tintagel etc. Lovely friendly local pubs. Cottage was as per pictures. Very cosy with lovely views out to sea. Spiral staircase was not a problem for us and there is a high step into the bath/shower but again this was not a problem for us. Would maybe caution elderly guests or those less mobile. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely consider staying again.

    A delightful getaway with views to the sea, a well equipped kitchen and very cozy lounge / snug, within easy driving distance of many local attractions. The stairs are as described (so not suitable for persons of restricted mobility). We’d be happy to recommend to friends.

    Wonderful views very hard to beat. Garden and surrounding fields were fabulous for our children to play in. We'll equipped and large kitchen. Lovely welcome from Gina with information on where to visit plus a cream tea after our very long journey. Various beaches near enough to enjoy for the day, retiring to the cottage and deep bath for the evening.

    Although we found the location and views stunning we thought this cottage was not up to the standard of other cottages that we have stayed in. The very narrow spiral staircase was difficult for my husband and I to get up and down. We both have had knee replacements. I would question fire regulations. My son also found it difficult carrying the baby up and down, he had to protect the babies head otherwise he would have bumped it. This left him with no hands to hold onto the staircase. The shower was another issue, a wooden bench to step on to get into a very deep Japanese bath but nothing to help you get out. Should have grab rails. Not suitable for the elderly or infirm. The double bed sagged in all directions and such an old tatty bed. The babies cot started to fall apart on the first night where it hadn’t been put together properly, so dangerous. The very old chairs in the sitting room were so uncomfortable they made your back ache after only a few minutes. The kitchen was quite well equipped but had no work tops to prepare food. The whole cottage was very cluttered with unnecessary large furniture. We have rented many cottages over the years but this is the first time we have been disappointed. So no we would not be returning.

    Response from:

    We are sorry and upset to received these comments. The narrow spiral staircase is clearly shown and described on the website as well as the Japanese style deep bath. As you had both had had knee operations we wonder why you chose our cottage? There is a step up to the bath and the towel rail can be used for assistance. The spiral staircase is not inherently dangerous in any way, with a bannister and up rails to hold on to. It is just a case of getting used to it, as some 80 year olds have done. This cottage was our main home for 25 years, it is an attractive feature and we have had our grandchildren when they were babies, and as toddlers staying there with us without any mishaps. Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are installed and a fire risk assessment is in place and updated as required. It’s a double bedstead which has a brand new mattress and mattress topper. It is a matter of personal opinion as to whether a bed/mattress is too soft or too hard and it certainly doesn’t sag in all directions. We have not had a previous comment about this. Apologies about the cot we are not sure what happened there. The cottage dates from the 17th century/Victorian times and has been furnished over the years with furniture that we have carefully chosen. Modern furniture tends to be too bulky and unsuitable for a period property. The single chairs are reupholstered and we will be replacing the sofa soon. There is a large butchers block under the window for food preparation, a slate top area beside the sink, a scrub top kitchen table and a couple of dressers for the storage of china and glass in our farmhouse style kitchen. The utility room has a work surface as well.

    Downhouse is a cosy cottage full of character in a stunning & peaceful location with a lovely garden & great coastal views. Wonderful walks & dog friendly beaches nearby. We particularly enjoyed the welcome cream tea provided by the hosts!

    A wonderful stay in a fantastic setting. If you’ve never tried your hand at bodyboarding now’s the time! The cottage was wonderfully peaceful with gorgeous views of the Cornwall coastline.

    Wonderful week spent in this fab location. Perfect getaway, visit the sometimes busy coastal attractions in the day and escape back to the tranquillity of this lovely cottage when you are done and take a deep soak in the lovely bath tub. The garden with this half of the pair is very spacious. The cottage has everything you need for your holiday. The stairs are tight, so take note of the warnings and you'll have no issues. Gina and John are very lovely and really helpful and accomodating. The gorgeous Trebarwith Strand, which is magical when the tide goes out is a few minutes drive away or a pleasant walk and the cottage is the perfect location for the wonderful beaches, headlands and attractions such as the Camel Trail, Tintagel (seen from the garden), Ports Isaac, Quin, Padstow, nearby walks and Tors and in fact so much is accessible easily from here. But returning to the quiet of the cottage has a magic of it's own, watching the sunset or the seagulls chase the tractor across the fields.

    A lovely relaxing break. The cottage has wonderful views of the sea and a barn owl living in one of the small barns!
