About Christine Gregson

We are a family with 2 children and 1 golden retriever who all fell in love with North Cornwall.

Christine Gregson purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Christine Gregson chose Tintagel

We bought Threshings cottage in 2005 and take great pride in making the cottage as stylish and homely as possible. It is the best of both worlds as offers an escape from the hustle bustle and allows you to enjoy the stunning sea views, chill by the pond or run off steam on the field garden. It is only a 5 minute drive from a large selection of eateries, pubs and sea in nearby Tintagel and Boscastle. Nothing pleases us more to hear someone else has had a great holiday there!

What makes this cottage unique

Stunning Sea Views. Large outside area (communal).

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at Threshings Cottage. It is an absolute gem, tucked away in a very peaceful spot. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, well equipped and nicely decorated. The views are amazing - photos really didn't do it justice! Having the paddock opposite is a real bonus for dogs and children. Some lovely walks though woodland to St Nectan's Glen or Rocky Valley and Bossinney Cove is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen.

We had a fabulous time and would certainly love to return, or perhaps move in?!

What a truly wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house offers home from home comfort with the most beautiful view of the sea and surrounding countryside. As soon as we walked through the door we relaxed; it just has that feel about it. There was not one single thing we needed that wasn't available during our stay and everything provided was in excellent working order and good quality. The layout of this lovely house is perfect with the living area upstairs, because even when cooking or getting a drink from the fridge, the beautiful view is there to see and there's a perfectly placed sofa in front of the main window to sit and enjoy the gorgeous view. The walking opportunities from the house itself are many and with absolutely stunning views. The Rocky Valley and St. Nectan's Glen are literally just a short walk away and both are amazing experiences with no need for the car. Christine Gregson who owns the house was a delightful lady to deal with and was very generous with her time when I had a few questions to ask before booking. She made the booking process feel smooth and comfortable from the beginning all the way through to our return home and had even left a complimentary bottle of wine to welcome us to her home and our holiday. Thanks Christine and without a doubt, we will be back.

Beautiful, characterful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful. Well furnished, cleverly arranged to fit in everything we needed and stunning views and surroundings. It really felt homely and the kids and the dogs all shared our opinion that it was a wonderful holiday we'll never forget.

Ideal base and property for a holiday in North Cornwall

  • 4 of 5

A very good holiday property with a decent sized upstairs sitting room with lovely views. The bedrooms are fine and all that is needed for a holiday let. Good outdoor paly areas for children and a very safe environment generally. Washing machine was very helpful and we would take far less clothing with us if we were to go again. Very nice welcome brochure and the wine on arrival was a very nice touch. Would recommend the property to others. It was clean and not having to thoroughly clean on departure was very helpful. Lanhydrock House near Newquay is an excellent day out especially if damp. Huge house and grounds and a good break from the beach.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This is the 6th time we have stayed at Threshings and we have not yet had a disappointing visit. The property is clean, well equipped and ideally situated to visit the many attractions Cornwall has to offer. Added bonus there is plenty of parking. I would strongly recommend Threshings to anyone wanting a great Cornish stay.
