About the property

House near Tintagel, Cornwall - peaceful location overlooking St Nectan's Glen, with parking

Wain Cottage is a spacious two bedroom house located in a tiny hamlet overlooking the rugged coastline between Tintagel and Boscastle. The cottage enjoys lovely views of sea and rolling countryside. Accessed by a private road, it feels ‘off the beaten track’ yet Tintagel is only 2 miles away. The cottage has full central heating by propane gas (included in the price). There is a wood burning stove with a basket of logs supplied. There are beams throughout the cottage and full double glazed doors and windows. All in all, a comfortable and cosy place to spend a peaceful and relaxed holiday. The cottage garden is fully enclosed and in fine weather is ideal to sit out in and enjoy. The hamlet of Trevillett is safe for children to roam around. If you like self-catering you will not be disappointed with the facilities; if you prefer to eat out there are many recommended local restaurants, pubs and tea rooms.

About Mrs S E Mumford

As a family we are based in Bristol. For many years we have enjoyed spending self-catering holidays with our 2 children, often in Cornwall. We love the coast of North Cornwall with its stunning scenery and secluded beaches. The weather can be unpredictable (sometimes April, May and June are best), but if it is cloudy near us it will often be sunny elsewhere. We try to maintain Wain Cottage as a home from home, so that you really can self-cater if you want to and are comfortable during your stay. It is our second home and we look forward to returning to spend our holidays there.

Mrs S E Mumford purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Mrs S E Mumford chose Tintagel

Wain Cottage is set in a fine position on a hillside with views of the Cornish coast between Tintagel and Boscastle. The cottage was converted from a nineteenth century slate-built barn in the 1980s. For the last ten years it has been available to let as a holiday home and maintained to a high standard. We bought Wain Cottage in 2012 to use for our own family holidays, and also to be available for those who love the wild and rugged coast of North Cornwall. Several fine beaches are only a few minutes' drive away. Wain Cottage is set in its own private location in a small hamlet yet it is close to all amenities. Access via the A30 or A39 means you are never too far from bigger towns and popular visitor attractions.

What makes this cottage unique

The coast of North Cornwall is wonderful for walking and we have footpaths starting right from the door of Wain Cottage. We are a mile by road from Rocky Valley and the sea at Bossiney Haven. You are then on the South West Coast Path with fine cliff-top walks to Tintagel or to Boscastle.

Notes on accommodation: As the cottage is stone-built it tends to stay cool in the summer and retain its heat in the winter. It is suitable for all ages, but care should be taken with very young toddlers at the bottom of the stairs as there is no way of fitting a safety gate and the first few steps are slate. There is a safety gate at the top of the stairs. We regret that we are unable to accommodate pets. No smoking in the cottage.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful country setting

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Wain Cottage. We're an American couple (from California) and found the cottage perfectly located for exploring Tintagel, Boscastle, and surrounding areas. The cottage is located in a quiet area and offers beautiful views of the nearby countryside and sea. The cottage was clean and well-furnished and fully equipped to meet all our needs (including washing laundry). The listing description is accurate, and the owner is very responsive in answering any questions. We would highly recommend Wain Cottage, and would eagerly stay here again!

Schönes Cottage nähe Tintagel

  • 5 of 5

Unser Cottage hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Wir waren nur zu zweit, aber auch für vier Personen ist reichlich Platz vorhanden. Das Meer ist in Sichtweite. Das Cottage liegt sehr ruhig und bis zum nächsten Ort Tintagel sind es mit dem Auto 8-10 Minuten. In Tintagel gibt es gute Restaurants und Cafe`s, sowie kleinere Supermärkte und einen sehr guten Bäcker. Außerdem natürlich viele kleinere Geschäfte die zum Bummeln einladen. Wir haben dei Ruhe unseres Cottage sehr genossen und können es nur weiterempfehlen.

The sandy North Cornwall beaches are numerous and often secluded, the nearest being 5 minutes' drive away: many are accessible only at low tide. The cliff-tops and headlands are great for walking and bird watching. Inland there are the moors, valleys and rivers which make this an area of outstanding natural beauty.


A car is essential; nearest rail station Bodmin, with the nearest airport at Newquay.


Tintagel is 2 miles away with shops and post office, pubs and restaurants. Boscastle with its delightful harbour and good restaurants and pubs is 3 miles. Eden Project and Heligan are about 40 mins away. The Camel Trail ideal for cycling and walking starts about 15 mins away. Many fine large country homes of interest close by. A large selection of literature at the cottage. Excellent Tourist Information Centre in Tintagel.

Further Details:

The cottage is quietly located but very central for sightseeing. The towns of Wadebridge, Launceston, Bodmin and Bude all less than 30 mins away with the larger supermarkets. All these towns have banks and restaurants; at Bude there is a bowling alley. Camelford just 15 mins away has an indoor heated public pool with a private golf course just outside the town. There is a Co-Op in Camelford, Tesco's at Launceston and Wadebridge, and Morrisons and Asda at Bodmin. On the road to Bodmin at Hengar Manor there is an indoor pool and 9 hole golf course open to the public.
