About Julia Cottrell

Hi I'm Julia! Welcome to Fern Cottage! I live in a village in Nottinghamshire with my husband Tony, children Nu & Harry a nicely rounded tabby cat called Star! We love living here - only problem is that we are as far away from the sea as you can get in the UK!

The wild beauty of Cornwall gets into the soul. She calls like a Siren and for many years my extended family has holidayed here to the beaches at Trebarwith Strand and Crackington Haven to dig mysterious holes, explore rock pools, catch comical crabs, and body board the foaming waves - oh and eat ice cream and pasties.

I love adventure and every visit we find something new. So where better to have a cottage?

Why Julia Cottrell chose Camelford

We were looking for a cottage for us - one we'd love to rent as a family. We saw many....in the rain! As soon as we stepped inside Fern Cottage we fell in love! It is a real gem! It's a bit like the Tardis (a time travelling machine for the unitiated!) Light and airy and surprisingly spacious! Recently and sympathetically extended it is very modern in decor yet timeless at the same time!

Set in the tiny hamlet of Tregoodwell near Camelford and Tintagel on the edge of Bodmin Moor, 5 miles from the sea, it is not a million miles from anywhere, but just far enough for a civilised walk to take place! Out of the house and right at the post box takes you on a journey along a lane which passes fields carved out of mysterious and magical Bodmin Moor to Rough Tor - Cornwall's highest point!

What makes this cottage unique

At Fern Cottage life is made simple! WiFi is free and a takeaway curry or fish and chips are possible without a round trip of 20 miles (It’s a 1 mile round trip!). Run out of Calpol? Easy! The Co-op in Camelford is open until 10pm! Want to go to a pub without driving? Stroll into Camelford! Best of all if you place an online order,Tesco, Asda or Waitrose will deliver your groceries to the door!

Getting around Cornwall is also incredibly easy from Fern Cottage because of its proximity to the A39 - Cornwall's Atlantic Highway! Whether it's a trip to Rick Stein's at Padstow, or a visit to the famous Eden Project you are well placed at Fern Cottage. And if the sun fails to shine well why not go for a beautiful walk through the ancient woodland which runs past our lane?

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Just wanted to email you to say a massive thank you - Fern Cottage is perfect and I am so pleased we got to spend a week there! With the most perfect weather ever! We all walked in when we arrived and it instantly felt like home - the decor and fittings are wonderful and it had that homely feel about it.

I couldn't get over either how spacious each room was - when you look outside it looks so quaint and then you step in there and - well WOW! The kitchen has everything and more that you could ever need - we did actually eat in a few evenings after having nice long days on the beach.

My step son Zach didn't want to leave and announced that he would like to live there.

So all in all I just want to say a massive thank you - my parents said its the best holiday they have had in years."

Great cottage with facilities

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely week at the cottage. The cottage has everything you need even for the beach with kids :)

Good location - only a 10 minute walk to the village and in good reach of some good beaches and days out.

Lovely little cottage with all the home comforts.

  • 5 of 5

Fern cottage is perfect for exploring the beautiful coast and inland to the moors. Really characterful and with a lovely little garden, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It's ideal for families, very child friendly from the stair gates provided to the big box of family games and dvd's. Camelford village is a short walk away and has a wonderfully quirky pub with delicious food and a supermarket and take away options. We enjoyed the use of the barbecue at the cottage and were truly sorry to leave after a relaxing week. Definitely recommended!

Really enjoyed our week in beautiful Cornwall and being able to come back to the lovely comfortable Fern Cottage. A fantastic base to explore Tintagel and a great National Trust Walk at Crackington Haven. We also enjoyed The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Eden Project and St Michaels Mount. Also so many lovely walks and breathtaking scenery. The cottage is very comfortable, feels homely and clean, a lovely touch was tea,milk and Cornish biscuits on arrival. Thank you for a great holiday!
