Coachman's description

Holiday home
Coachman's is a lovely cottage within St Nectan's Glen, a wooded valley of outstanding natural beauty, one mile from Tintagel in Cornwall. This property sleeps two people and has a mezzanine double bedroom as well as a ground floor family bathroom. The cottage also has an open plan sitting room and with dining area and woodburning stove, plus a kitchen. Outside this cottage, there is ample off road parking and shared use of a lawned garden and patio with garden furniture and stream. Coachman's is a cosy romantic retreat and is perfect for exploring the area.

The ruins of King Arthur's Castle stand high on the cliffs just outside the historic Cornish town of Tintagel. It is a place of myth, legend and romantic associations, set against a backdrop of craggy rocks, hidden coves and swirling seas. Tintagel is a welcoming place for all visitors, with several attractive pubs, restaurants and specialist shops. The South West Coast Path is at its most impressive here, and can be walked in either direction. The pretty village of Boscastle can be found a couple of miles northwards along the path. The sea in these parts is a surfer's delight, and several beaches are in easy reach of Tintagel. Just 15 miles away is the popular resort of Bude, and other places which are well worth a visit are Bodmin Moor (with its spooky Jamaica Inn) and the world-famous Eden Project.

Cornwall's visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain's premier holiday destinations.

Had an absolutely wonderful time at the cottage. The grounds and the cottage exceeded our expectations, we are hoping to come back to the same place very soon. Found the owner extremely welcoming and helpful.

The cottage was beautiful so quaint and perfect for our needs. The garden with the waterfall was magnificent. We could not have asked for a more beautiful or perfect location for our holiday.

This is a great spot for walking the coast path and for surfing. We used the bus service a lot and the drivers always dropped us at our doorstep! The lack of light pollution made the nights very dark and great for star gazing.
Mr Jones

Superb location and the cottage was up to expectations. One of the most beautiful areas with woods, stream and a good walk to the coast. The manager was friendly and did not interfere.

A cosy cottage in a lovely setting. St Nectars Glen is a beautiful location and we could easily walk to the fantastic local beaches and Tintagel. The coastal path was very close and provided excellent walking to Boscastle, Port Isaac and beyond.

The cottage was everything that I had hoped for. The description given on your website was accurate and the facilities were excellent. The location was also excellent. I would use this cottage again in the future without hesitation.
Ms Littlechilds
July 2007
It was very peaceful and perfect for a get away from it all holiday. The log fire was good because although it wasn't particularly cold ,it was cloudy and grey in the evenings and this was a cheery feature. I liked the position of the cottage in the wooded valley and we were able to walk straight from the cottage to the coast path so often did not use the car.
Mr Shuttleworth
October 2007

Stayed in the cottage for 2 weeks. The location is beautiful, however, the interior is dated and could do with an update, that said, it is quite adequate as a base for a stay in the area. There is a ladder to the mezzanine bedroom which has limited headroom. If you are slightly infirm of don't like heights, this is not for you!! It is walkable to Tintagel but only if you are able to walk distances as it is quite a hike. We had glorious weather so got out every day. I would not have enjoyed it so much if we had been stuck in this cottage!
Ms Andrews
January 2005
Although it was winter time, the cottage was very cosy. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. The area was stunningly beautiful and everyone in Cornwall seems so nice, quite literally they go out of their way to say hello. Peace, quiet, a fantastic place to unwind.
Mrs Avery

We had a great week - gorgeous cottage in wonderful surroundings.
Ms Bailey
November 2004
The cottage was ideally situated next to the stream and within easy walking distance to the coastal path. Location created a wonderful feeling of calm and well being.
July 2012
On arrival the interior of the cottage was very dated however we soon forgot about this once we had settled in. It was clean and the bed was very comfy. PLEASE BE AWARE that the stairs to the Mezzine bedroom is actually a steep wooden ladder and the ceiling in the bedroom is low although my 6ft 3 husband managed for the week ! The owner (although not very talkative !) was very polite and didn't bother us all week but is on hand in the cottage next door if you need anything. The cottage itself is not within walking distance of Tintagel town but is only a min in the car down the road.The kitchen had everything you could ask for in it for self catering right down to the utensils. The grounds are lovely with the river running through the garden and if you follow the path through the back of the garden you can then walk right up to a cafe and a waterfall (although you cannot see the waterfall unless you pay !) All in all we were glad we stayed in Tintagel and would say the garden/stream made up for the dated decor inside the cottage. If you are using it only as a base then this would suit your needs,
October 2011
We had a fantastic time staying in this lovely cottage. The location is amazing, with gardens overlooking a stream and footpaths leading back up the glen or down to the coast. We had a wonderful honeymoon here.
