Property code: TOLBO

This historic house dates back five centuries and has been the former home of many important figures. The beach and coast are on your doorstep, while many top Cornish attractions are also close by.

This delightful coastal property sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms, with the twin rooms able to be made into king-size rooms, adaptable for many different party make-ups. Inside, relax amongst period features which add character and a little history, whilst outside you can settle on the patio and look out over the vast, blue sea. Wonderfully located for those who love the sea and all it has to offer, in the early morning, take a 10-minute stroll along the South West Coast Path to the beach and start your day with a dip in the sea. With four spacious reception rooms, this elegant property has socialising at its heart. Here, find ample spaces for a group to relax together, with plenty of nooks for some quiet time.

Over its 500-year history, this property has been home to several notable figures. Light and elegant country style meets dark exposed beams and slate floors with this cottage retaining much of its original charm. Quirky features complement the neutral and understated palette, with the whitewashed walls allowing the light to travel through the property. Striking artwork and soft furnishings add tasteful flashes of colour creating a welcoming and cosy ambience. Find space to dine all together in the kitchen and more formally in the dining room, or perhaps use one table for jigsaws only! Take a cup of tea to the conservatory with a good book for some downtime, before relaxing together in the comfortable living room, lighting the wood burner on chilly evenings and snuggling down with a film. In warm weather, relocate to the garden, breathe in the fresh sea, sip a glass of wine and dine alfresco morning, noon and night on the patio as the kids enjoy playing in the sunshine. There is ample parking and, with shops, pubs and cafes 1 mile away, stocking up is easy.

Gorgeous property, in an ideal location for that part of Cornwall. It is a 10/15 minute gentle walk into tintagel for shops/pubs/restaurants.

We loved the house and the ability to reach the dramatic scenery of the coast path in about 2 minutes was amazing. Lots to do and see from here. Beds really comfortable and the house had well equipped kitchen. We would go again.

A perfect cottage for three generations of family and two dogs. Modern facilities but a quaint style cottage just outside Tintagel. The sea can be seen from the house and a lovely 10 minute walk takes you to Bossiney Bay. It is not easily accessible unless you are fully fit but the view from the top is worth it.

Another wonderful week at The Old Borough House! We had everything we needed, the house is so characterful and very clean also. The location is great. Easy to visit Padstow and of course our favourite beach, Trebarwith Strand. We walked to St Nectans glen - stunning!
