HOT TUB & SAUNA facilities are shared between our 3 cottages. We operate a diary system which is kept in our Information centre - you just pop down the time you wish to use the facilities and this ensures your private use. Please note that from 29th October, 2016 to 1st April, 2017 (excluding Christmas and New Year bookings) there is a charge of £75.00 per week for unlimited use of the Spa facilities. For short break bookings the charge is £20.00 each time you book the hot tub/sauna. Charges are payable during your stay, at the time of request.

We do try to keep to a Saturday arrival/departure day for weekly bookings. However do contact us if this is not suitable for you and we will see what we can do.

About the neighborhood
We are set in 20 acres and surrounded by an area of outstanding natural beauty. The farmhouse and our 3 luxuriously furnished barn conversions nestle into the countryside, right on the edge of wild and romantic Bodmin Moor - just five miles from the breathtaking Cornish coast. You will find our lovely accommodation in North Cornwall near the towns of Tintagel, Camelford and Boscastle. Polzeath, Rock and all the best beaches are within easy reach.

Poldark, King Arthur, Daphne du Maurier, Agatha Christie, Rosamunde Pilcher - all inspired by the beautiful coastline and countryside on our doorstep and let’s not forget Doc Martin which is filmed at Port Isaac.
