About the Owner

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.

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.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

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.

From the Owner

Aside from the myriad of attractions which revolve around the sea and beach the greatest joy we have with our Springer Spaniel Socks 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.
