About Sandie

I was born and raised in this village and love the area. I met my husband here and have raised my sons in the area. We all enjoy the local community spirit and consider ourselves extremely lucky to live in such a wonderful location with the rugged coastline and fantastic sandy beaches.

Why Sandie chose Tintagel

Polkerr House was built in 1888 and extended in 1991 and has been in my family since it was built. It was run as a Guest house for 40 years by my parents before being partly converted to a high quality fully contained and well-equipped holiday cottage in 2004 by my husband and I. The family enjoys what the area has to offer with walks along the dramatic cliffs, swimming, fishing and surfing on the beaches. BBQs with friends in the summer and dining out in a number of great restaurants.

What makes this cottage unique

Our visitor book and feedback forms help us to improve our facilities each year but the things that our guest regularly compliment us on are the location, appearance, facilities and the cleanliness of the cottage and our hospitality.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a great holiday here in Cornwall. The cottage is superb, so tastefully furnished and well equipped. We take with us a picture of the cliffs at Tintagel bathed in sunlight. - D. Sanders Northants



We have been to Cornwall and Tintagel many times before. This accommodation is excellent. Good location, good facilities, peaceful, quiet, private and good value. - G. France Nottinghamshire



A really enjoyable stay. The cottage is lovely, spacious, clean and really nice decor. The location is great for walking, sightseeing and local amenities. Will definitely be back. -M. Brownfield Staffordshire

Large 2 bed cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in a quiet location ideal for lovely coastal walks and with parking. The term cottage doesn't do it justice as it has tall ceilings, 2 ensuites and large rooms, plenty of space for 4 adults to feel comfortable in. The photos are an accurate reflection of the cottage however, I thought the rooms were actually larger than the photos seemed to portray and was pleasantly surprised. We arrived early and had asked if we could park our car so that we could go and get some lunch, Nigel kindly then texted us to let us know we could access the cottage earlier than we had expected. The weather was typically English and on one day we felt confined to the cottage, however, with wi fi and tv and space we didn't feel too fed up, a great advantage was that we could walk to Tintagel within 5 minutes to buy hot Cornish pasties and sweets to while away the day.

Whilst here we walked the coastal path in both directions stunning views. We parked at Port Quin and walked to Port Isaac, visited both the Eden project and Lost Gardens of Heligan and also Boscastle. There are facilities within Tintagel to eat, shop and mooch around, Co-op in Camelford and the large chains at Bodmin.

As a first time family to Cornwall this was a great location with a lovely cottage. Thank you Sandie and Nigel

Fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We have used this cottage for about 5 years as it is in a fantastic position for the village centre and for cliff walks. The cottage is kept well and is always spotless. There are two bedrooms and both have their own bathrooms, which is perfect for families or for two couples. The cottage is comfortable and has everything needed for a holiday but also has enough equipment in the kitchen for those who wish to have some nights eating in the cottage. We will certainly use this again.

Polkerr cottage

  • 5 of 5

Polkerr cottage in Tintagel is conveniently located for the town and castle and coastal walks. The cottage itself was clean and very well equipped. It was a quiet and relaxing holiday, with plenty around the area to see and do in all weather.

Polkerr Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Had a lovely stay at Polkerr Cottage. It had everything we needed for the week. Parking is at a premium in Tintagel, so it was excellent to find this cottage with decent parking - even for a Volvo estate! Good property/local notes provided - even details on recycling, which we find is often missing in holiday cottages. Washer and drier are in the garage/outbuilding. Outdoor furniture could do with some tlc/updating, but that was the only slight negative point. All in all, a great spot for touring the area or, indeed, not using the car all week and walking.
