About Andrew Grainger

My wife and I moved to this area of North Cornwall from London 10 years ago and now could not imagine living anywhere else. North Cornwall is as beautiful as anywhere we have travelled on our countless global treks. If you enjoy walking or surfing, beautiful countryside, villages and churches and great local produce you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Andrew Grainger purchased this house in 2010

Why Andrew Grainger chose Tintagel

This area of North Cornwall remains a bit of an undiscovered gem. We have easy access to all the well known holiday spots such as Rock and Polzeath but the local atmosphere is far more relaxed and equally, if not more beautiful.

What makes this house unique

Aside from the myriad of attractions which revolve around the sea and beach the greatest joy we have with our dog Squidge are the huge number of incredible walks many of which can start and finish from our front door. We will leave a guide to 10 of the best in the house for your information. As a keen photographer I have recorded most of the local sites, most of which can be viewed on my photography facebook page https://www.facebook.com/andygraingerphotography/

Guestbook comments from the owner

Overdene is gorgeous you have done such a marvellous job doing it up we had a really lovely time there thank you. I particularly love the kitchen /diner so spacious and social;, and that beautiful table with the fabulous sea view. It was the perfect house for us the accommodation worked really well, it was truly great you are so lucky to live in such a spacious, light and airy place - London does feel pretty cramped since returning. Anna Hyde

Just wanted to drop a line to say we had a lovely, relaxing holiday at your house. The house was great - It's very well equipped, great for families, comfortable beds etc. The kids didn't want to come home and my husband even managed to surf every day and watch the football news on Sky! Kate Mason.

What a beautiful house and the weather - well! it certainly matched it, We felt like we were in the Mediterranean - The doors open - sitting on the terrace looking at the amazing view. The photographs do not do the property justice! Geoff Rose.

Wonderful spacious home, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, great views, lovely walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful updated home in superb location. There was great space for our party of multiple generations plus dog including a gourmet open kitchen, family rooms, nice fenced yard, deck and great views. Bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable, large and well equipped. The setting is spectacular with easy walks to village, across fields to the spectacular cliff walk and down to the amazing beach. All members of our family agreed this is a very special place. Andy, the owner, could not be more helpful through his detailed written guidance and availability by phone on all of the house systems and the local environs. Highly recommended.

Beautiful house! Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Overdene for a week over the New year. The house is beautiful with amazing views. The house is very well equipped with everything you could need and had plenty of space for the 12 of us. All the rooms are beautifully decorated and we particularly enjoyed having the log burner for cozy nights in. The house is very well situated in a lovely area with walks along the coastline and only a short walk to Trebarwith Strand and Tintagel. Andy the owner was great. Can’t recommend this property enough. We will definitely be returning hopefully in the summer.

Beautiful spacious house, perfect for families & groups. Kids loved the trampoline!

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations and provided a perfect setting for our family holiday (5 adults, 4 kids). The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms are comfortable and the garden (with bbq and trampoline) was lovely. The house is within walking distance of a brilliant beach (Trebarwith sands) and also a great pub (The Port William). Driving down the very narrow lanes takes a bit of getting used to; the parking space was adequate. Overall we'd definitely recommend it.

Car: recommended


The glorious tidal beach of Trebarwith strand is but a 5 min drive or a fabulous 20 minute walk across to the cliffs and down. It is dog friendly and served by Lifeguards in Summer. Great for surfing (surf school on beach), fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, rock pooling, swimming and watching wildlife. The famous South West Coastal path is five mins from the front door and is beautiful in both directions. And for a totally different scene the wilds of Bodmin moor are just a 15 min drive away.


Car transport is necessary. Bodmin Park railway station is about 20 minutes away. Flights to Newquay airport plus car hire possible, 40 mins. Travel from London, in season, 5 - 6 hrs but as we have dedicated the less busy changeover day as Monday you may find you can significantly improve on this time.


South West Coastal path 2 mins walk, Beach at Trebarwith Strand 1 mile, Historic Tintagel and Tintagel Castle 2 miles, Fishing villages of Boscastle, 3 miles and Port Issac, 4 miles. Polzeath, Daymer Bay and Rock c.10miles. Wadebridge (good shopping) with bike hire for the beautiful camel estuary ride to Padstow and the essential fish and chips from Rick Steins 30 mins by car. Eden project 40mins - 1 hour by car.

Further Details:

The local shops of Tintagel are just one mile away, Spar, Londis, Butcher, cash machines. For those who want to sample the best meat though head for Home Farm above Boscastle (10mins) or for Fish and the best crab in the world try Port Isaac (15 mins). Tescos is in Wadebridge 20-30 mins drive but they offer a delivery service, please book well in advance on Tescos website if you want to use this service.
