Wonderful Modern House by the sea

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 5 (3 Adults and 2 Children aged 16 and 12). We had been to a beach in Tintagel before and loved it so decided to book a house in Tintagel. The house is deceptively large with power showers in all bathrooms, clean white bedding in all rooms and even a cupboard in the utility room with essentials. We found the house easily from the directions given and despite the somewhat tired looking appearance outside, the interior is clean, modern and well designed for a large family/group. The house is walking distance to a beautiful secluded beach but is down a steep walk. Well worth it though! Try Goliath Falls, a bit of a drive but the waterfalls and walks are breathtaking. The village of Tintagel is an easy walk where you can find many cafes, eateries and most importantly ice cream shops! Try Sails cafe in Boscastle, not much to look at but the food is delicious at a great price. Close to Port Isaac - Doc Martin village. All in all we loved this house. The location, the amenities, the homely feel and the price!

Perfect House and Location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd visit to Ebb Tide and even in winter it doesn't disappoint! The log burner and underfloor heating keep the house extra cosy even when it is chilly outside. The house is well equipped as usual, the beds very comfy and the upgraded Broadband is truly super fast.

This visit was for New Year and we had a wonderful time. We walked the coastal path from the house past Tintagel and into Boscastle for a warming lunch and then caught the bus home. We had a New Year's Day dip in the sea at Trebarthwith followed by a full English at The Port William before the short coastal walk home.

Looking forward to coming back in the summer!

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

10 of us stayed for a long weekend this Autumn and had a fantastic time. The house easily accommodated our large group. We had a great time cycling the Camel Trail into Padstow, kids and all (very affordable bike hire in Wadebridge, and the easiest way into Padstow). We were treated with a good swell at Trebarwith Strand where kids and adults built up good appetites trying to surf! This little tidal beach which we walked to on the coastal path from the house (10 minutes walk, less in the car) is a gem.

The highlights were the big meals in the house though, with it's massive kitchen dining area where we could all catch up and spin the same old yarns we always do. It was great on the last night to use the bbq, pack the kids off upstairs and earn a headache for the next day!

We'll be back.

Impressive

  • 5 of 5

I like the destination in Tintagel it's got good views with a short walk down to the nearest beach Trebarwith Strand, they do surfing lessons and activities for children with ice cream shops and a pub called the Port William. The house has a church close to it and King Arthur's Castle which I recommend to go and look around. It's about 15 minutes walk to the shops and it's even got a park for children and hairdressers and a Cornish pasty shop.

Tintagels best

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, great big kitchen diner area- makes large group meals really easy. Brilliant views across open countryside. If you like coastal walks - this is best location. Trebarwith strand Beach is tidal, so check times but wow the Atlantic is the best fun. Rock climbing great fun, younger ones liked rock pool fishing. Pubs great - recommend port William and the mill.

Great location and super house

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property and this part of Cornwall, having previously stayed at the far West, we wanted a change and to see some new sights. Within walking distance of Tintagel town (which has lovely boutique shops, pubs, cafes, a renowned pasty shop, fish n chips, ice cream etc) and castle, and the SW Coastal path, and yet in a quiet hamlet away from the crowds, this was ideal for our family, who like to sightsee but relax on the beach too. This house has been heavily, but tastefully refurbished, with all mod cons and plenty of room to relax when the weather doesn't play ball. The owners have young children and stay there themselves, and this made for a very family feel to the house. I normally pack lots of basics such as toilet roll, salt and pepper, cooking oil, handsoap, a washing up sponge, etc, and did so for this holiday but the owners had thought of it all, provided much of these already and invited us to 'borrow' anything we were missing from their own store cupboard, and replace later. A nice touch. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and large, with a big family dining table. The 'snug'had loads of toys and games, including lots of lego which made my children very happy! The house has good sized bedrooms although the children are in a small room with bunkbeds, but all they're going to do there is sleep, right?! One room has a choice of double or twin configuration which was very useful, and there are 3 bathrooms - so no queuing! The garden is practical rather than pretty, and we made use on our one full sunny day of the gas barbecue and picnic table. Perhaps some more outdoor seating would have been useful, the bench isn't comfortable to sit and read, though as it was not yet the height of the season perhaps this was not yet provided. We found ourselves able to walk to the beach and excellent gastro pub along the SW coastal path, with fabulous views - though there is a steep climb going home, beware! We were able to walk to the National Trust's Old Post Office, well worth a visit. We also drove to Padstow, to Polzeath beach, Crackington Haven which has great rockpools and lovely cafes. Many other attractions nearby we didn't have time for, and lots of farmshops in the vicinity. We had a great stay, in a warm, comfortable, spotlessly clean house which felt very welcoming. The owner was friendly and helpful throughout the booking process. A super place with a lovely feel to it. Highly recommended property.

Location

From the Owner

My brother and his wife and my husband and I bought Ebb Tide a few years ago after looking for years for a cottage in the area. As children we had a cottage in nearby Treknow and our childhood memories are of walking to Trebarwith Strand to spend days on the beach and in the rock pools; amazing walks on the cliffs between Trebarwith and Tintagel; and playing in the garden when the tide was high and we couldn't get onto the beach. We both now have young families and we wanted the same childhood memories for them.

Activity and Interests

Coast/Beach:

Trebarwith Strand is about 2 miles by road or 1 and a half miles on foot over the cliffs. The small beach at Tintagel Castle is about 1 mile on foot. There are several good sandy beaches within easy driving distance, Daymer Bay, Polzeath, Bude and Widemouth Bay to name but a few. Boscastle and Port Isaac offer fishing and sailing trips.

Travel:

Newquay or Bristol are the closest airports, and Bodmin station is the closest train station.

Further Details:

Trevillick makes a wonderful base from which to explore the Coastal Path, Trebarwith Strand, King Arthur's Castle and Tintagel, Boscastle, Bodmin Moor, Rock and Padstow, Newquay and the Eden Project. As well as amazing cliff and moorland walks you can also cycle along the Camel Trail (cycle hire available in Wadebridge and Padstow). Don't just think of North Cornwall as a summer holiday venue (though it is wonderful!) - it is absolutely amazing all year round!

Tintagel is a small holiday town famous for King Arthur’s castle and offers much in the way of historic interest. There are several shops here and many pubs and cafes offering a good selection of places to eat out. And of course the Old Post Office which is a fascinating glimpse into a past way of life.

Trebarwith is a valley with one road leading to a sandy beach. There are two car parks making this beach easy to get to. At high tide, the beach is completely covered ensuring up to a mile of clean sand at low tide. There are two pubs in Trebarwith both offering good meals. The Port William overlooks the bay and the Mill House is set in a wooded valley.

Facilities

From the Owner

We spend as much time together there as possible - along with my parents and sister. It's a wonderful house for an extended family and we all come and go as we please - cliffs / beach / garden / pub / house is about all we do, with occasional restocking supplies in Tintagel! For my children the perfect day is a walk to the beach with their cousins, play on the beach and swim in Horse Pool (February to November each year, they're not normally allowed to swim at Christmas!), followed by lunch or at least a hot chocolate at the Port William and a brisk walk back home again! For my husband and I stealing a few quiet days away from the farm with just the four of us is our idea of heaven!
