Property Location


Tintagel exudes charm and medieval history with Arthurian legend as the birthplace of King Arthur. Tintagel Island is reached via a narrow footpath with many steps. Still, construction has started on a new footbridge to link the island to the mainland, which should be completed in 2020. The cliffs around Tintagel are all Devonian Slate and the sands at the foot of the cliffs turn the sea a bright turquoise in strong sunlight, a wonderful sight. Tintagel is a delightful holiday village with many tourist shops and cafés, pubs and restaurants.

To the north is Trethevy is a picturesque hamlet, equidistant from Boscastle and Tintagel and has a history which may well go back to 250 AD when a granite post was inscribed with C DOMI N GALLO ET VOLUS – ‘For the Emperor Caesars our lords Gallus and Volusian’ this can now be found outside St Piran a former monastery and now private residence, Trethevy is also home to St Nectans Glen a beautiful valley where the River Trevillet has carved its way through the slate and formed a beautiful 60' waterfall.

Further north is 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 coast, including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch known as 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.

2 miles south of Tintagel lies Trebarwith Strand. At low tide, there is about a mile of glorious sandy beach. Please make sure you check the tides before going for a walk as this beach all but disappears as the tide comes in and every year, walkers need to be rescued who have misjudged the tide. There are hundreds of rock pools that can provide endless entertainment for the younger members of your family.

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 television 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 housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book during the First World War. The famous Camel Trail follows the old railway route 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 Stein's 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.

The view is stunning and only second to the south west coastal path. We go as a family group and each room has a bathroom. ThereA?s plenty space for kids to play and space to cook and dine whilst enjoying quality family time. Ample car parking and minutes away from shops and pubs in Tintagel. A genuine gem of a place!

Island View is a well appointed bungalow with superb sea views. The property is not much to look at from outside but the interior has been refurbished and redecorated to a high standard. We had a very pleasant and comfortable stay and would recommend Island View to anyone wanting a self-catering holiday in Tintagel.

Tranquility and comfort
Reviewed on 30/06/2022

The bungalow was very well appointed with good quality utensils etc in the kitchen and throughout. The American fridge/freezer, with the crushed ice facility was a boon in the hot weather. The bedrooms and en-suites were clean, comfy and spacious. The conservatory was a useful and relaxing space. There were lots of spaces to sit and relax: two outside, conservatory and lounge. The views across the conservatory to Tintagel Castle and the sea were excellent with spectacular sunsets. Visitors should not be put off by the proximity of the Camelot Castle Hotel and its car park: there is a raised bank with meadow flowers which blocks off the car park when sitting in the conservatory. There was little noise from the hotel. It was very peaceful and tranquil. Tintagel, with all its shops, pubs and restaurants, is only a short walk away. More instructions about waste collection would have been welcomed. There was a knack to opening the doors in the conservatory! We missed the usual Welcome Pack.

Probably the best property we have stayed at
Reviewed on 31/01/2022

Stayed here as a couple for a week in January. Very quiet location with great sea views....there is a large hotel opposite which blocks part of the view but it was closed while we were there. Very short walk to village with pubs, shops cafes etc but limited opening in winter. Comfortable king size bed (I think they all are) with ensuite bathroom. The quality of the bathroom fittings was superb and shower was always hot and powerful. Lovely comfortable settee in sitting room with very large TV. The quality of the kitchen was also top notch. Being here in the winter we didn't use the outside seating area, but the conservatory is excellent, warm and with comfy furniture. We had a lovely stay in this warm, comfortable property. I don't think we could fault it. It might even be the best property we have ever stayed in!

Due to covid and staff shortages the pubs and meal provision in the village was very poor and the only busy and dependable meal was the chippy.

An excellent location. Island view was very comfortable, clean and spacious. All rooms had their own bathroom which was nice. The views surrounding the accommodation were amazing. Great sunsets. My only disappointment was the blind in the lounge would not work so felt we had limited privacy with the large hotel behind. Kitchen was well equipped felt we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this bungalow we had a great time.

We had a fantastic weeks holiday in Island View. The house is very spacious and comfortable and has been fitted out to excellent standards. It was extremely clean, with lovely towels and bedding. The location is perfect, being at the quiet end of Tintagel, with amazing sunsets. We were able to make the most of the outside space and BBQ. It is within easy walking distance to a number of pubs, shops and cafes. I would definitely return to Island View.
