Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
In Treknow, one of four Victorian terraced houses perched high with terrific views down the Trebarwith Strand beach valley through its big bay windows. The house is on three levels, with 13 steps from the lane up to the front door, and, at the back, a long, enclosed garden (table/chairs) on various levels with a gate at the top leading to a back lane and parking. Inside, homely and comfortable. From front garden, door to hall; living room with open fire, TV/DVD, iPod dock and great valley views; big fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer) with original Delabole slate floor; back porch leading to loo (washbasin) and door with a few steps up to the garden. From hall, stairs (stairgates) up to two bedrooms – a double (5' bed) with great views including glimpse of sea, and a twin; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower). More stairs up to second floor and another twin bedroom with more great views and TV. A good family house (not suitable for anyone with mobility problems). Within a few hundred yards down the lane, a good food pub/restaurant (remember torch!).

The West Country region
Cornwall's north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur's?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and 'a pair of blue eyes' nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall's prettiest villages - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).
Treknow: hamlet of mostly old cottages, a mile from the fine sand/surf beach of Trebarwith Strand. Tintagel, about 1 mile. Superb coastal walks. Golf, leisure centre and riding at Camelford (small town, pubs, shops, restaurant on the river Camel), 6 miles.
