The space

Merlin's Cottage (although more a house!) is situated down a quiet private track, has panoramic sea views and is very close to the SW Coast Path. The cottage is a 15 min walk from Trebarwith Strand surfing beach and it is only a 20 min drive south to the sailing amenities of Rock and Polzeath. Six miles to the east lies Bodmin Moor, with outstanding biking and hiking opportunities. And it is a 5 minute walk across farm land to the historic town of Tintagel. The cottage, which was refurbished in 2014, boasts a brand new kitchen, with open plan dining room and conservatory space. An extra bathroom and a new boiler have been installed downstairs to ensure sufficient bathroom facilities and plenty of hot water for all. With 4 bedrooms, a large garden and plenty of parking space, Merlin's can easily accommodate two families with children and all the associated surfing/sailing equipment. Alternatively Merlin's is a wonderful retreat for couples wanting to explore the stunning north Cornwall coastline.

Guest access

The guests will have access to all parts of the house except the locked garage. Merlin's has its own large private garden which the guests will have access to.

Interaction with guests

We had a lovely stay in Merlins Cottage, and would have loved to spend even more time. Perhaps another year...!

Merlin Cottage was a perfect place to stay. We had a long weekend away with all our family. The scenery is beautiful and the walks plentiful. The cottage itself it very clean and tastefully decorated - a perfect home from home. We would certainly visit there again and would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

I have just returned after a 3-night stay at Merlin's Cottage. This was my first AirBnB experience and I was a little nervous how it would pan out, but I needn't have worried as everything was perfect. The house is stunning. It is clean and spacious with several living areas and a huge fully-equipped kitchen. The location is the best part - the house is surrounded by large fields and there is a footpath along the cliff which leads to Tintagel Castle. Nicky and Felix were also very welcoming and answered my questions promptly ahead of my arrival. Although they live overseas, they have a housekeeper who was available should we have needed anything.
