Just half a mile from Tintagel, famous for its myths and legends of King Arthur, and within a 5 minute drive of the sandy surfing beach at Trebarwith Strand, this freshly renovated link-detached cottage enjoys coastal views across the surrounding countryside towards the sea. 

With parts of the property dating back to the 1600’s, the comfortable accommodation now furnished to a high standard with double glazing and central heating, still retains character with exposed beams, several changes in level and low doorways, hence the name ‘Duck Down’! 

Approached from the driveway where there is parking for two cars, a gated path leads through the enclosed front garden to a slate roofed verandah which catches the morning sun, and from here the front door opens to a long hallway with a tiled floor.  To one side, there is a warm and cosy beamed sitting room with lounge seating facing a wood burning stove set on the slate hearth. 

A couple of steps continue down to a 2nd lounge/play room with a beamed ceiling and a sofa bed for alternative sleeping arrangements.  At the rear, one step leads directly into a well equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen/dining room with slate flagstones, oak fitted units and dining suite and views of the garden and coastline beyond. 

Carpeted stairs lead up from the hall to the first floor landing, three cottage style bedrooms, and a family bathroom W.C. with hand basin, corner bath and additional shower cubicle.  There is a bunk bedded room with fine views towards the cliffs and sea, one step continues up to a twin bedroom with 3ft zip linked beds, and a doorway leads into the master bedroom with a 5ft king-sized bed and en-suite shower room W.C. with hand basin. 

A door from the kitchen opens to the enclosed rear garden with a raised slate terrace and a couple of steps continue down to a small lawn and patio; there is also a shed available for storage of beachgear and a gate to the driveway. 

The property is set in Treven, one of the seven parishes of Tintagel where there is a good selection of local shops, restaurants, museums and pubs all within easy walking distance as well as the dramatic coastal footpath and Tintagel Castle itself.  Trebarwith, 1.5 miles, has a large area of sand and rocks revealed at low tide, and the picturesque harbour village of Boscastle is a 10 minute drive. 

Bodmin Moor, the beaches on the Camel Estuary and The Camel Trail are within easy reach, whilst the larger towns of Bude, Camelford, Wadebridge, Bodmin and Launceston are all within a half hour car journey offering a wider range of facilities.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £20 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 821 666 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Loyalty Discount
Close
A 5% loyalty discount is available at some properties for guests returning for a second or further holiday within 2 years through Cornish Traditional Cottages. If you are eligible for the Loyalty Discount your final balance payment will be reduced accordingly after your booking has been submitted. The Loyalty Discount cannot be claimed with any other discount.
How to book
Close
  1. Select the check box next to the week(s) you wish to book. Multiple weeks can only be booked consecutively. Non consecutive weeks must be booked separately.
  2. A summary of your booking will appear. To proceed with the booking select the 'Continue booking' button in the summary box. Deselect the weeks to remove the summary box.
  3. Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) cannot be booked at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name until availability and pricing has been agreed. It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be confirmed in your name if the owner wishes to make the Reserved period available for booking.
  4. 'Reserved' weeks (as opposed to 'Reserve' weeks) can only be booked by a customer who has 'Reserved' the highlighted period.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 62% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 71.5% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 91% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
