About the Owner
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.

Couldn't wish for a better holiday cottage!
Lovely experience, helpful owners always on hand if needed, beautiful cottage, great location, definitely will be back!
Wonderful week in Cornwall
Glen Tor cottage is fabulous, the photos don't really do it justice. We have stayed in quite a few cottages but this is one of the best, everything is of a high standard, and the cottage is very clean, well equipped and spacious. An excellent base for touring the area and walking the coastal path. Also very well situated for easy access to local shops and attractions, but away from the hustle and bustle. Would love to return, just wish it wasn't such a long journey from County Durham!!
Lovely well positioned cottage
The cottage was great, it was very clean and well maintained. Tintagel is well positioned to do everything you need to do while on holiday in Cornwall. Sandie and Nigel were very nice and acomadating and we would definitely recommend the cottage to family and friends.
Spacious and clean cottage with excellant facilities, close to all amienities, and coastal walks.
Lovely cottage in a very pretty village. Sandy and Nigel, our hosts were very helpful during booking & our stay. They made us feel very welcome. Thank you very much.
The cottage is lovely, exactly as it looks in the photos. Very spacious and clean and cosy. Easy walking distance into Tintagel, perfectly positioned. Well equipped, only missing a welcome pack of some tea bags, sugar and milk - would have loved a cup of tea upon arrival! Would absolutely recommend this cottage and we will return!
