P108 - Agar Cottage
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
In Trelights, a semi-detached, 400-year-old cottage serving as the village forge in a previous century when it formed part of the vast Lanhydrock estate. Now, for two generations of the same family, a much loved, well-equipped retreat. At the back, an enclosed, sheltered courtyard with 13 steps up to sun deck (bench) and, across the lane, a mostly lawned, enclosed sunny garden.
Inside, big, thick cob walls, a surprising amount of space and a good deal of charm. From the lane, door directly into large living room with open fire, TV/DVD/video and wood and slate floor at one end, and at the other end a lovely old settle - reputedly made for occupants of an earlier century. Step up to open-plan fitted kitchen/dining room with modern red brick floor, conservatory one end and utility room the other (dishwasher, washing machine, tumble drier, microwave, fridge-freezer) with back door to courtyard. Ground-floor shower-room (suite, large cubicle). Open tread stairs from living room up to three bedrooms – a double (5' bed), step up to a twin, and another small twin; big bathroom (suite with separate shower).

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).
Trelights: sleepy hamlet (good hotel restaurant) about a mile from the magnificent coastal path. Port Quin's fine rocky, sandy cove, about 1¼ miles; the pretty fishing villages of Port Isaac and Port Gaverne, about 2. More great beaches at Daymer Bay, Polzeath and Rock, 5. Good seasonal farm shop/café, pub, 1 mile.
