About the Owner

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?

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."

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!

OUR "FOODIE" HOLIDAY TO BEAUTIFUL CORNWAL

  • 5 of 5

Oh how we wish we were back at Fern Cottage! It really is an idyllic holiday cottage nestled in a little Cornish hamlet. It's everything you hope it's going to be .. and more! The accommodation is beautifully furnished, and the cottage is fully equipped with all mod cons but still retains its old-fashioned character and charm with its beamed ceilings and of course The Rayburn in the gorgeous country kitchen!!

The property was clean, the beds really comfortable, the En suite Roll Top Bath a real luxury! It was extremely well maintained with everything we needed for our stay and more!

There is easy access from the cottage onto the moors for superb walks yet you are only minutes away by car from Camelford when you need to stock up on essentials from the Co-op!

Excellent location for visiting surrounding coastline and the pretty countryside. We can thoroughly recommend the little seafood market at beautiful Port Isaac (get there early to avoid the rush in peak holiday times!!), the beautiful big pasties from Penganna Pasties in the lovely scenic town of Tintagel and days on the spectacular beaches at Polzeath or the beautiful Constantine Bay and Widemouth Bay. Our favourite pub was The Malsters Arms in Chapel Amble and we spent a wonderful evening at The Mill House Inn restaurant in Tintagel - magical setting and stunning food.

We will definitely be booking again and we can thoroughly recommend to all without hesitation! Jo, Nick, Tom & Charlotte xxx

Fern Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great week staying in Fern Cottage. Absolutely beautiful, spotlessly clean and easily big enough for myself my wife and 3 children.

Everything you need at hand for a relaxing week away . Owners are easily contactable by email and nothing is too much trouble. Walk out of your door and turn right and you can walk all the way onto Bodmin Moor if you wish. Only a short distance away from Tintagel , Boscastle , Padstow. We had a dog so used the beeches at Harlyn Bay, Deymar Bay . In fact not enough time to do all we wanted that's why we will definitely be back to Fern Cottage in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you David and family for your lovely review and for being such super guests! I'm glad you found Fern Cottage so spacious and got to enjoy its location on the edge of Bodmin. A beautifully behaved hound like Murphy who wipes paws and stays downstairs on his own bed is always welcome!

Location

From the Owner

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!

Facilities

From the Owner

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?
