Tregoodwell is approximately half a mile (10 minute walk) north east of Camelford. Camelford is an ancient market town situated on the River Camel. Its name was believed to have been a contraction of 'Camalanford' from 'cam' meaning crooked, 'alan' meaning beautiful and ford. The town lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor and is about 6 miles inland from the rugged North Cornwall coast. Legend has it that King Arthur and his Knights are part of cornish history, and that Camelford was the 'Camelot' of legend. Further up the coast, towards England, are the towns of Tintagel, Boscastle, Crackington Haven and Bude while to the South West are Port Isaac, Polzeath, Wadbridge and Padstow. All of these have excellent pubs and restaurants and of course you are never far away from a glorious sandy beach (quite a few of which allow dogs all year round!)
Boscastle is a tiny port set in a narrow ravine, the town came into prominence recently as a result of terrible floods in the summer of 2004. There is a pottery in the village and several gift shops. A footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the 'Lookout' which is a wonderful vantage point from which to view the rugged coastline. Boscastle was once a favourite meeting place of the author Thomas Hardy, and is the location for one of his novels 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'. Boat trips can be taken from the harbour as far as Long Island, where during the breeding season you may see razorbills, puffins & guillemots. There is a demanding 7 mile coastal path walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. There are several attractions along this stretch of coast including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch the Northern Door. Just south of here is High Cliff which is the highest point on the Cornish coast path. Don't forget to visit Pentargon inlet which has an imposing waterfall that cascades down to the sea below.
On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island. Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.

Our stay at Cobbetts was the perfect holiday. Location wise the house is in a small quiet hamlet of Tregoowell a pretty 10 minute walk to the centre of Camelford and a couple of miles down the lane from Bodmin Moor. Camelford has good pubs and restaurants (try the Indian takeaway for a unique experience and the best curry you will ever have. The Masons Arms also does VERY good food). Cobbetts is a beautiful house, the four bedrooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is huge and very well equipped. The lounge is homely and comfortable. The garden was perfect for our dog - plenty of lawn and secure) plus parking for 3 cars. Camelford is the perfect location to explore Cornwall. On the A39 it is an easy drive to wherever you would wish to visit - we went all over the place (recommend a visit to Fowey and a boat trip round the harbour). We could not fault the house or its location and Cornwall is just sublime.

Guest from Sudbury stayed for 7 nights.
Ideal accomodation for a family or group of friends. Superb, luxuriously comfortable accommodation with every facility imaginable. Fabulous week despite the weather
Guest from Glasgow stayed for 7 nights.
We enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage. We spent most of our time in the spacious kitchen diner. The kitchen was well equipped and modern. Indeed, all rooms were freshly decorated and contained everything we needed. Some thoughtful touches impressed us such as beach towels, dog towels and bowls, and the welcome hamper. The garden is safe for kids and dogs. The new parking spaces are a welcome addition. The location is ideal for travelling around both Cornwall and Devon. Overall, an excellent property.
Guest from Hook stayed for 7 nights.
Last year Cobbetts was a haven from wind and rain. Thankfully this year it was a haven from the sun!!!! The new car parking spaces are a real plus and the totally secure garden was great for our dog. And because it was so sunny we got to use the barbecue for the first time. This has to be the best cottage/house we have stayed in and can definitely see ourselves back again next year. My only very small query is on the internet speed/service. It doesn't seem as good as last year and with data hungry children it was the only gripe (they can't do without snapchat or whatsapp or catchupTV).
Guest from Bristol stayed for 7 nights.
This is a fantastic cottage/mansion in a good location for all of north Cornwall. The cottage is fantastic with everything you could ever think of on hand. Just wish my house was that big. Thanks again
Guest from St. Albans stayed for 7 nights.
Cleaning of the property had only been undertaken superficially, with showel gel containers, soap wrappers and razor blade caps left by the side of bath from previous occupiers of the property. Dust and dirt on window sills and around the floor in corners of the rooms. A number of lights bulbs, in particular in the bathroom and kitchen, didn't work and some lights appeared to be broken altogether. A number of flies in the kitchen. The lack of parking at the property was a problem, and we were approached by locals who did not like the fact that the owner had suggested parking in a nearby square outside their houses restricting parking for owners of those properties. However, it was a well equipped house, with plenty of space.
At August12th we strive to deliver top quality all the time. We can only give our humble apologies to this guests who found our accommodation lacking during their stay. Dust and dirt is not acceptable at anytime! There was also a systemic fault with the ancillary 'sphere' lighting in the bathroom which need replacing. it is worth pointing out the main-lights in the bathroom were fully functional . We take all comments seriously and we thank the guest for drawing these matters to our attention. We have subsequently reviewed our change-over routines and check processes to ensure this will not happen again and so we can continue to deliver the high standard of service and comfort we pride ourselves on As a general comment: Regarding the lamps. we replace all failed lamps at change-over. If any bulbs fail during a stay, spares are left in each of the rooms and our housekeepers are on call should more bulbs be required. Parking: It is possible to get up to three cars lined up on the road outside the property. All parking on the roads in the village is 'public' and there is occasionally competition for the parking. If guest cannot park by the house then we inform them in our welcome letter of other 'public' parking available in the Village.
Guest from Stockport stayed for 7 nights.
Beautiful cottage set in a peaceful location but within easy reach of everything north Cornwall has to offer. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. The house was immaculate, beautifully decorated and very comfortable with plenty of room for the six of us and three dogs! We had a very enjoyable holiday and would definitely choose Cobbetts when we next come to Cornwall.
Guest from Cheshunt stayed for 7 nights.
The Cobbetts is a beautiful home that is a good condition. I would highly recommend it for anyone needing a good base for touring the North Cornwall. There is no doubt you would need a car at this location and on occasions parking can be a challenge. I would happily stay here again and again!
It is It is always great to know we are getting it right and that our guests have enjoyed their stay with us. Both I an my wife really do believe in ensuring our guests are welcome, Positive feedback is of course great and very welcome as are suggestions and ideas for how we can enhance our offering
Guest from Waterlooville stayed for 8 nights.
No Pictures can show how quite remarkable Cobbetts is. The whole house exudes quality and comfort. The owners have not missed anything at all, everything you could possible need is there and each room is a fascinating experience. It was wonderfully clean and warm on our arrival with a super hamper of goodies, again everything you could need if arriving late in the day. It was like staying in a 5 star hotel was a comment made. It is a very sociable house, especially the sensational kitchen/breakfast room which opens out to a beautiful sunny garden with fantastic views. There is plenty to do in the house even if the weather is poor. Our dog was also made to feel very welcome with his own dogs bowls and towel. All our friends said how well they slept and how comfortable the beds were (they even took pictures of the makes!!) It is easy to get to places such as Boscastle, Port Issac, Padstow, Rock I could go on .. We were all very impressed and shall without any doubt return to Cobbetts. Our ONLY disappointment was that Cobbetts is already booked for Christmas!
Guest from Preston stayed for 7 nights.
We had a fantastic break here. Accommodation was really well equipped, beautiful and really did have everything you needed. Would 'highly' recommend to others so long as it's not when we need it"! A wonderful place to be.
Guest from Westhumble stayed for 7 nights.
Beautifully accommodation in quaint village. Extremely comfortable with no expense spared. Everything you needed with great attention to detail. Lovely gesture of welcoming basket of goodies. Located on a corner it was surprisingly busier and noisier at night than we anticipated but that would be my only slightly negative observation, otherwise perfect in every way
Guest from Stafford stayed for 7 nights.
A beautiful cottage nestled in the quiet village of tregoodwell near camelford. Well-kept garden secured by a low wall and iron gate kept our small dog safe to potter about, equipped with large gas BBQ sun loungers and patio furniture. A generous hamper and fresh flowers were left to welcome us on arrival. Fabulous, clean, we'll equipped property. Ideal location to explore the north of Cornwall from. We would definitely recommend Cobbetts to friends and family and plan to return again. Thank you to the owners who have without doubt thought of everything to make Cobbetts a pleasurable and memorable holiday experience.
