In Treknow, four Victorian terraced houses perched high with terrific views down the Trebarwith Strand beach valley through big bay windows. We let two. The houses are on three levels with about 10 steps from the lane up to their front doors. At the back, each has a long, enclosed garden (table/chairs) on various levels, with a gate at the top leading to a back lane and parking. A few hundred yards down the lane, a good food pub/restaurant (remember torch!). Friendly all-year-round family houses, well placed for beach, walking and exploring north Cornwall. Not suitable for people with limited mobility. Heatherdale is end-of-terrace and bright and welcoming with lovely touches of colour and interest from prints, pictures and well chosen furniture. From the steeply sloping, lawned front garden, step up to porch with plenty of space for boots/beach paraphernalia. Another step up to living room (woodburner, TV/DVD) with large bay window with valley view and sea glimpses. Smart L-shaped kitchen/dining room (slimline dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven/induction hob). Back door to garden, outhouse (washing machine, tumble drier, storage for surfboards). Steep stairs (stairgates) from living room up to a very pretty double bedroom (5' bed) with bay window and lovely rural views seaward. Bathroom (suite, shower over bath). Further narrow and steep stairs (stairgates) up to a large bright bedroom under the eaves with three single beds, TV/DVD and good views.
Treknow: hamlet of mostly old cottages, a mile from the fine sand/surf beach of Trebarwith Strand. Tintagel, about 1 mile. Superb coastal walks. Golf, leisure centre and riding at Camelford (small town, pubs, shops, restaurant on the River Camel), 6 miles.
Over three floors. Two bedrooms: a king size double and a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC on the first floor, and a further room with three beds on the second floor. Kitchen with dining area. Sitting room with wood burning stove.
TREKNOW Tintagel, home of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, whose ruins dominate the cliffside just outside the village, is a popular but not overcrowded tourist destination. The surrounding area is dominated by the sea, rocky coves and stunning scenery. Several beaches, including nearby Trebarwith Strand and Bossiney Cove, are within easy reach and surfing is the main attraction for those who love the water. Tintagel has several pubs and restaurants and the Old Post Office (National Trust) is a must. For the energetic, the SW Coast Path passes through the village and in both directions it winds its way along the cliffs and down to the water’s edge through dramatic countryside. Head north along the path and in 2.5 miles is the beautiful village of Boscastle with its quaint quay and village pubs for refreshment. Further afield are the surfing meccas of Newquay and Bude, with their resort attractions, while the open spaces of Bodmin Moor, the Eden Project, Padstow and the Camel Estuary are all within a 40-minute drive.
