Kingfisher Cottage is nestled in a small cluster of similar properties within a select development on the banks of the River Inny which benefits from a communal tennis court. The bright, double aspect cottage is open plan and inviting and the patio area to the rear is just above the little river and a wonderful spot to soak up the evening sun. Kingfishers can sometimes be seen flitting along the stream searching for a quick meal.
The cottage is within 8 miles of the stunning north Cornwall coastline, hauntingly beautiful beaches exposed as the tide drops away from pebbled coves. There are some beautiful coastal walks along the cliff top paths revealing the rugged headlands being battered by Atlantic waves and there are also plenty of excellent surf spots within easy reach. Nearby, Wadebridge, one of north Cornwall's main market towns and gateway to the Camel Trail, is a short drive away where you can find many boutique shops, restaurants and pubs. Slightly further afield is Port Isaac, where Doc Martin is filmed, and Bude which is a vibrant town with supermarkets and many stunning restaurants and pubs. Devon is only a short drive "north of the border" and Clovelly and Hartland are well worth a visit.

Idyllically situated on a river bank in a small and private complex, tucked away in the Cornish countryside about 7 miles from the rugged North Cornwall coast, with its beautiful tors, coves and beaches.
This location brings all that Cornwall has to offer within easy reach. Walkers, Hikers and Cyclists are spoilt for choice of footpaths, such as ‘The Saints Way’ and the Coastal Path ranging both north and south. Alternatively up Roughtor onto Bodmin moor, and see the remains of its pre-historic settlements.
Or just drive to the coast, for a boat/sea-fishing trip from Boscastle and Padstow. See nearby Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed. Visit the locations used in the filming of Poldark. Or to Tintagel and its castle. To the north Bude and Clovelly, to the South Newquay, St Ives, Lands-end, Porthcurno the Minack Theatre, St Michaels Mount and much, much more.
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. In the village there is a pottery, a museum of witchcraft 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.
Guest from Sevenoaks stayed for 7 nights.
My husband and I spent a wonderful full week here. Everything was in great condition, clean and anything we needed was there. Lovely scones, clotted cream and jam were left for us which was greatly appreciated. The little stream running past the back garden made for peaceful morning coffees and the area in general was lovely and quite. We will definitely be back.
Guest from Poole stayed for 6 nights.
Cottage was co but were still able to get out and m comfortable and conveniently located for us and Saffy the dog to have country walks and a mile or two on the coastal path. The secure rear area was very convenient for the dogs security when let out. The fitments and furnishings were excellent and it was so tidy and clean on arrival wit a cream tea to welcome us. Electric heaters were a God send when we had heavy rain, sleet and hailstones on our first 2 days but were still able to get out and dodge the showers. Widescreen TV wiht Freeview were 1st class. Peaceful, quiet and very pleasant surroundings but we did ot see a Kingfisher! We enjoyed our time there and would recommend it to others who enjoy the country, walks and peace and tranquillity.
