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. Heightley House is homely and comfortable. From front garden, door to hall. Living room with open fire, TV/DVD, iPod dock and great views. Big kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with original Delabole slate floor. Back porch leading to loo and door with a few steps up to the garden. From hall, stairs (stairgates) up to two bedrooms - a double (5' bed) with great views including glimpse of sea, and a twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath). More stairs up to second floor and another twin bedroom with great views and TV.

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.
