200 Years Old, Secluded Garden,Quiet Hamlet, Near Sandy Beaches, Moors And Shops



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
3 Bedroom, 2 modern Bathrooms, modern Kitchen / Diner with Log Burner, Sitting Room with open Fire.Up to 6 adults. Free WiFi, Parking. Walk to the Pub and Shops

Tregoodwell Cottage is in the quiet square of Tregoodwell, off an unmade lane with parking just in front of the cottage. If the square gets a little congested and you have more than one car, there is space at the top end of Tregoodwell about 50 yards away. 200 years old, built as the local pub, the cottage is full of character with its original features combined with a modern kitchen, bathroom and en-suite. The kitchen/dining room is very well equipped with quartz worktops, a warming wood burner and a big table for all to gather around and a TV. The snug sitting room has white beams, comfortable seating and an open fire and TV. The turning staircase leads to the three individually styled bedrooms and the large family bathroom. The good sized garden is terraced and enclosed, safe for children to play in and the lower lawn is a real sun trap for alfresco eating. The peaceful hamlet of Tregoodwell is half a mile from the historic market town of Camelford, with its many shops, restaurants and pubs. Bodmin moor, Tintagel, Trebarwith strand and the harbour villages of Port Isaac and Boscastle are just a short drive away.

About the Owner

I guess my wife and I are a fairly normal couple now with a grown up family. We have three children all of whom like staying at Tregoodwell Cottage when they can. We live in Bath, Somerset so it is quite easy for us to pop down for a short break. We like doing what people like doing: working a bit, eating a lot, enjoying ourselves a bit, relaxing with friends. Dreaming of owning the ideal holiday cottage. And now we do.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Recent guests left these comments in our Visitors Book this summer 2013:

We have had a brilliant week in Tregoodwell Cottage! We loved it. A real home from home and so clean and well equipped. We had everything and more that we could have needed. A great base for daily trips to various beaches. Thank you so much! We will definitely be back.

And from younger guests: " We have had a good holiday at this really good cottage. It might be the best holiday ever. Thank you.

And in summer 2012:

"A lovely cottage, definitely the nicest we've stayed in. Comfy beds too! Lovely garden, a real sun trap...... We hired bikes and cycled the Camel Trail. Lots of lovely walks and exploring at Tintagel and Boscastle. Wonderful coastal walk from Tintagel to Trebarwith Strand. We......had lovely weather all week and with such a comfortable and homely cottage to return to at the end of each day a wonderful holiday."

Very clean on arrival. Plenty of space and very well equipped. Good sized enclosed rear garden and gated front, so very safe for small children and dogs. Always a concern when booking "pet friendly" places that it will smell of dog - absolutely not the case here. Teabags, milk and biscuits left out for our arrival. Ideall location for visiting Rock, Padstow, Port Isaac etc, although if you are forced to have holidays in the school holidays as I am, be prepared to get to these places early! Lots of decent local walks with the dog and excellent fish and chips from the local chippy. We had a minor issue with the heating and the front door lock ( we were trapped inside!!) but the housekeeper was there very quickly to help us out. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed staying in Tregoodwell Cottage. Many apologies about the faulty lock, it was very old and we should have replaced it before, but we have now. Do come again!

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband, 2 girls, two good friends with their daughter (who was a baby in a cot) and their dog. We were all amazed at how much space we had despite being the maximum occupancy, the kitchen was so well equipped far better than I have ever found in rented cottages before. There are games and books available to utilitise and the real fires were very much appreciated at the time we were there.

Highly recommended.

From the Owner

My wife and I have enjoyed holidays in North Cornwall since our early childhoods, and little has changed! Our fondest memories are of Trebarwith Strand, in my view the finest beach in the world when everything is considered, and climbing to Rough Tor one of Bodmin Moor's peaks and just a short distance from Tregoodwell. Jumping from rock to rock on the beach as the tide comes in, watching waves crash against the cliff during a storm, walking along the cliff top (now the Coastal Path) looking out across to Gull Rock whatever the weather - why go abroad? This is the most beautiful place there is, all year round. So when the time came to find a hideaway, Tregoodwell was the exact spot. Number 15, for us, ticks all the right boxes for a holiday home and we hope it does for you too.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Exeter at 50 Miles Nearest Barpub : Mason's Arms in Camelford at 0.5 Miles Nearest Golf : Bowood Park at 3 Miles Nearest Train : Bodmin at 15 Miles Nearest Motorway : A30 at 12 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Mason's Arms in Camelford at 0.5 Miles Nearest Beach : Trebarwith Strand at 5 Miles Car: necessary


I take our dog each morning for a 10 minute walk into Camelford for the daily paper and a wander beside the River Camel. Camelford has a full range of shops, supermarket, pubs and restaurants.


Trebarwith Strand, Tregardock and Bossiney beaches are all large and sandy with cliffs behind and much to explore. They are covered at high tide so regularly cleaned and dog friendly! Driving time from the cottage is about 10 to 15 minutes. Tregardock and Bossiney then require a walk across fields - simply delightful. You can surf from Trebarwith and Tregardock.

Just a little further away are Daymer Bay and Polzeath. Very popular, family friendly and you can drive to the beach. Polzeath is well known for surfing.

All the way along this stretch of the North Cornish Coast is the coastal path, taking you to all these beaches, hidden coves with old slate quarries and much more.


Tintagel with King Arthur's Castle, Boscastle with its atmospheric harbour, Port Isaac for Dr Martin and fresh crab, Port Quinn for coasteering are all a short drive from Tregoodwell.


Tregoodwell hamlet is near the edge of Bodmin Moor with hiking and a 20 minute walk to Rough Tor, the extinct (luckily) volcano, from the nearby car park. You can cycle from our door to the National Cycle route skirting the moor to the highest pub in the area for a good meal or deserved refreshments. Just a bit further afield is the Camel Way, the old railway line now a cycle path from Bodmin, Wadebridge to Padstow.


You have a huge choice of places to visit on a day trip and we provide much information in the cottage. Here are some ideas.

We usually take the ferry from Rock across the Camel Estuary to Padstow with its fishing harbour, shopping time and restaurants.

The Eden Project with its bio-domes is good for the family. Newquay has surfing beaches and many attractions nearby.

St Ives, Land's End, Fowey and other South Cornwall towns are within reach.


Port Isaac: 8 miles. Port Gaverne (Pub): 7.5 miles. Port Quinn: 7 miles. Tintagel: 6 miles. King Arthur's Castle, Tintagel: 6 miles. Arthurian Centre, Slaughterbridge: 2 miles. Boscastle: 6 miles. Delabole: 3 miles. Bodmin Moor: 2 miles. St Kew: 7 miles. Wadebridge: 10 miles. Rock: 10 miles. Polzeath Beach: 10 miles. Daymer Bay: 10 miles. Padstow: 15 miles, or 10 miles plus the ferry across the estuary.

Newquay: 20 miles. Equestrian Centre 1.5 miles. Crackington Haven: 10 miles. Bude: 15 miles.


Besides the Sandy Beaches, Walks and Harbour villages, there is much to explore from Tregoodwell. Interested in HISTORY? Visit the site of King Arthur's defeat and final battle at Slaughterbridge or King Arthur's Castle at Tintagel. Interested in our INDUSTRIAL PAST? See the old Slate Quarries and Beam Engine Houses that decorate the landscape, and the old Jetties and Quays where the mined Slate was shipped away. Interested in working MINES? Pay a visit to nearby Delabole which has the deepest open worked pit in Europe. At the end (or in the middle!) of the day have a good PUB MEAL in St Kew, Port Gaverne, Port Isaac or Trebarwith. Camelford itself has a Leisure Centre with a 20m SWIMMING POOL, a museum, art gallery and TOURIST INFORMATION CENTRE. . North Cornwall boasts many lovely old CHURCHES and several are within walking distance or a short drive away, often in lovely romantic settings. We have a few photos on this site to give you a flavour of the countryside.. Although beyond "North Cornwall", Lundy Island and Clovelly to the North, the Eden Project, Charles Town Harbour with its Tall Ships and Newquay to the south are all accessible as day trips. We also love Cornwall in the autumn and winter when things are a bit quieter and other than being a bit cooler and damper underfoot, everything is much the same. The walks, the beaches, the pubs. And the added benefit of those lovely snug evenings in front of a log fire, reading, playing cards or dare we mention it, watching the telly.

From the Owner

Quiet location yet within a 10 minute walk of the shops: Walk the dog straight across the fields from the cottage. Bring your bike and cycle to Bodmin Moor, along the National Cycle Route that skirts the western edge of the moor, or along the Camel Way. With an Ordnance Survey Map in one hand and a pack on your back, just head off. Choose one of a number of glorious beaches, which in the off season will be almost deserted. End the day in a nearby pub having excellent food. Explore mining history in the hills etc. etc. All within short drives of our cottage, or walking directly from the door. We think that the cottage itself has everything you need for your holiday: after all, we use it ourselves whenever we can! Use it either as a base to do all these things, or just to relax in.

  • Notes on accommodation: The cottage has full thermostatically controlled oil fired central heating throughout, in all bedrooms, bathrooms, the hall and living rooms. The cupboard under the stairs has the cot and high chair. If you use them it would be much appreciated if you could clean them and put them back before you leave. A smallish well behaved dog is very welcome, but strictly not upstairs or on sofas please. We also ask if you can be careful to remove evidence from the garden when you leave Tregoodwell Cottage. Many thanks. Outside: The front garden has a small lawned area surrounded by borders with shrubs and bulbs. Birds love these shrubs and you can watch them through the window when having breakfast. The rear garden can be accessed through the cottage back door and also from up the pathway to the side gate. The garden is private and terraced with the lower lawn beside the house with table and chairs in a sun trapped corner. Perfect for alfresco eating using the garden furniture we provide. The upper lawn is a good size surrounded by shrubs and trees.The whole garden is enclosed. Depending on when you might be staying, there is rhubarb, blueberries, raspberries and apples to be eaten. So it is ideal for children to play in and for sitting out and watching the clouds go by or to do a bit of star gazing. Utility Room: Here is the boiler, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, the ironing board, iron and brooms. There is space to dry clothes and store boots, in the unlikely event of inclement weather. In the Hall there are plenty of hooks to hang your coats. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Towels and linen are included. The property is cleaned before and after each stay and, if staying for multiple weeks, at the end of the week by arrangement with our housekeeper. Please do not take our towels to the beach, so bring your own beach towels. Other: The front door leads into the Hallway then through to the back door and garden. As this is our own holiday home, you will find lots of our books which you are welcome to read but please don't take them off the property or home by mistake!
