"A great property in a super area, highly recommended"
Dear Wendi, dear Gordon
Thank you that we could use your house in the last 2 weeks.
We felt like home and it did not miss anything.
The area is very nice, magnificent scenery, goog footpathes and we had sunny weather during almost 10 days.
We have been several times at The Masons Arms pub in Camelford. info: reservations should be make otherwise you may have to wait a long time (over an hour).
Also at the Bettle and Chisel we felt good is not so busy.
We did not use the bikes because we have found that the roads are too narrow and not safe enough.
Warm regards and thank you to Gill

"One of the best kept properties we have ever stayed in, no expense spared on comfort"
Ideal location for touring North Cornwall, Trebarwith beach just 2 miles away was a knockout. The surf school there was brilliant, not to big. Check the tides though, if you turn up at high tide it could be 3 hours before you can get on the beach. Port Isacc not far, nice village, plenty to do. Even and looked at all the film locations for Doc Martin ( Martin Clunes). Newquay was a 40 minute drive but worth it. Excellent for shopping and massive beaches. Nearby Tintagel castle, fabled for the birth of the myth, King Arthur, was brill.
Merlins cave, to walk through it from the beach to the rocky outlet the other side was excellent.
The location of the house suited us with local pubs, shop and post office. Didnt get a chance to go down the quarry but it looked good. Makes your eyes a bit funny cos its so deep.
Familes with small children, say below the age of 7, may struggle with kiddie activities, there are plenty of them in Cornwall but most are 30 min drive or more. My daughter is 12 and we couldnt keep her out of the see.
Will definatley return. Many thanks to Wendy,Gordon and Jill the manager. Fantastic.

"An exceptionally well-equipped, comfortable house"
We stayed in 8 The Sidings with our 5 year old daughter and found it brilliantly equipped, and very comfortable. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble to provide detailed information on the surrounding area, the house has a Wii plus lots of DVDs, and toys for young children. It is beautifully decorated and furnished. The area itself is very quiet and peaceful. Most places were a short drive away, and there isn't much in Delabole itself, but we didn't find this a problem. We had an extremely enjoyable stay and would highly recommend it.
