Property Location


The name Lesnewth is of Cornish origin and means 'New Court' that is 'a chieftan's estate'. Some of the oldest buildings of Lesnewth include the Church, the Rectory & the Mill. The village is situated approximately 2 miles east of Boscastle and 6 miles east of Tintagel.

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.

Trethevy is a delightful 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.

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.

Very enjoyable stay

Hosts were very welcoming. Excellent location for North Cornwall. Cottage was very well equipped with plenty of wood provided for the log burner. We made good use of the outdoor patio area in the sun. Us and the dog had an excellent time! We are highly likely to return!

Home away from home!!

A wonderful oasis in Cornwall. The hosts, Pat, Dave and Julie were marvellous and exuded Cornwall friendliness. Nothing was any trouble. The studio is exceptionally well equipped with modern conveniences and facilities. The home-baked scones and cream tea were tasty and much appreciated. Very good location for visiting the north coast of Cornwall. Definitely a lovely little studio, perfect for a couple, in a quiet country location.

Firstly when we went into the cottage and found the fridge wasnt cleaned due switched off for defrost also sink with bowl wasnt cleaned properly. Also in bathroom toilet and sink wasnt cleaned. We have to clean it all ourselves make feel more clean and comfortable. Overall we enjoyed our stay with comfortable bed with tv in studio cottage. The host was helpful and kindness.

From the Owner:
I was somewhat taken aback when I read this disappointing review. Robins Nest is a recently converted holiday studio, with brand new, almost unused equipment. These guests were only the third people to stay, so it’s difficult to understand the impression given that the fridge and wet room needed cleaning. Because I left everything sparkling. I think I will simply quote using their own words from my guest book: "Thanks for lovely home-made scones and bread. Enjoyed our lovely stay with peaceful and quiet. Sweet nice cottage. Thanks so much for your kindness. Hope to be back near future!"

Perfect Cornwall Experience

Our stay at Robin's Nest could not have been better. Everything was ready from the moment we arrived (even tea!) and the property owner was incredibly welcoming. She provided us with comprehensive instructions for getting settled with locations for multiple grocery stores and local restaurants. I can't say enough how friendly and obliging she was. The cottage itself is very well equipped. There is a refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, laundry machine, shower and toilet, and TV with Netflix. There's an electric space heater in addition to a wood-burning heater. There's plenty of space for two people and though the cottage is part of the longhouse and is attached to the owner's home, we had lots of privacy. We really felt at home. Robin's Nest is located amidst several large pastures. There were friendly cows to greet us coming and going in the morning and the location is brilliant for walking with a stunning mix of woods, farmland, and breathtaking views. It's about an hour walk to Boscastle (albeit with some steep hills on the way). Though the location is secluded it's fairly central and with a car we were able to explore a good chunk of North Cornwall. Boscastle, Tintagel, the beach at Crackington Haven, and the SW Coastal Path are all less than a half hour's drive away and it's not much further to Bodmin Moor, Bude, Padstow, and the St Agnes Coast. Robin's Nest is a great cottage run by great and kind people. It's the perfect place to call home during a vacation in Cornwall.
