We were greeted by a bottle of wine and some lovely biscuits. The owners had also lit a fire to add to our welcome. The Haywain Cottage was cosy. We stayed in November and lit a fire for most of the time but there were plenty of radiators to keep a lovely warmth if the fire wasn't lit. There were details of walks from the cottage which we found really useful.

Holiday Cottage Gem
Left on 10/10/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | Linda & John
We have just had a wonderful week's stay at The Crowsnest. The welcome was very warm and the cottage quaint and comfortable. The view is a $1,000,000 one! The Crowsnest is perfectly placed as a base to explore the amazing North Cornwall coast and countryside. The owner has provided an excellent dossier of very clear directions for easy to arduous walks and shares the depth of information only a true walking local could provide. The problem with the Crowsnest comes in making the decision whether to sit and relax on the terrace and watch the weather systems come and go over the atlantic ocean, glass of wine in hand(from bottle provided by owners on arrival), or to boot-up and follow coastal and cross country footpaths that take your breath away with their splendour and beauty. It's an experience to cook in a well provided kitchen with a view over the coast that distracts at every second! Our week's weather varied from hot and sunny to cold and wet and the Crowsnet was cool and toasty warm as required. It is a little gem of a holiday retreat. Read more
Actually we've recently updated our collection of walks from Park Farm to keep them in sync with changes to the footpaths.
We've also included a list of new guided walk apps for the wider area from iwalknorthcornwall: if you have an Android phone or tablet (particularly anything like a google nexus), pack that when you come here as you can use it for these (the apps download over WiFi and then run offline so you don't need an expensive phone contract to use them).

What a lovley cottage in a wonderful location. The view from the bedroom was outstanding, and the owners very friendly and helpful on arrival. There is a wealth of information in the cottage about local attractions and days out, and our family really enjoyed ourselfs. Another bonus for me ( Driver !) was its location wasnt that hard to find (considering rural settings) and the parking was convenent. Money well spend. A good holiday location for familys.

My family (husband, myself and 2 young sons) stayed at the Haywain, Park Farm Cottages for one week in august. The owners were extremely welcoming and supportive throughout our stay. The cottage provided everything we needed, including a cot and high chair for our 1 year old son (requested at time of booking). It had a traditional style throughout, with modern amenities, including Sky TV and Broadband. The panoramic views of the North Cornish coastline from the Master bedroom and the garden were spectacular (esp sunset). The location of the cottage was an ideal base for access to North Cornwalls countryside and beaches (the nearest sandy beach - Trebarwith Strand - was only 5 minutes away by car). In summary, we had a wonderful holiday and look forward to a return visit next year.

What a lovely weekend we had at the Haywain cottage. accomodation was fab, everything we needed there and more, safe secluded garden,very spacious and clean, lovely sea view, what more can we say? apart from wish we could have stayed longer, and will definately be coming back!we loved nearby Boscastle, and lots of walks. Beck and James x Read more
Thanks for the review and the facebook photos. We're really glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again.
If you liked Boscastle, there's a nice walk from Boscastle to Beeny which passes the grey seal colony at Buckator. From Autumn onwards the seals start congregating there; we've seen several dozen on the beach at one time surfing, sunbathing and having the occasional "dispute", so if you're here Autumn-Spring that's definitely worth a look. The woods at Minster are also a nice walk from Boscastle particularly in Autumn (when all the trees are changing colour) and early Spring (when the churchyard is full of daffodils).
A little disappointing.
Left on 07/19/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Claire G
Me and my husband stayed here in June this year. We go on many cottage holidays, and although we got this cottage at a discounted rate, it was still more than we usually pay. The lady that showed us round was friendly and welcoming and the cottage was well equipped with views over the sea. There were even sun loungers available for sunny days and good Internet access. We found the double bed was the most comfortable we have stayed in, in any of our cottage holidays. There is a bus stop virtually outside, however the local pub has sadly now shut down.
We were a little disappointed with the cottage after viewing the excellent website. The cottage smelled musty - there were air fresheners around but they were all empty. Also the cottage wasn't as clean as it could have been. My husband took out 3 spiders from a web in the front bedroom, and the light cord in the bathroom was dark brown with use. There was also grease on the grill tray and an unusual amount of flies around. The information folder was out of date with most leaflets/timetables dating back to 2009. I have marked the cottage as 'average' because putting 'poor' seems a little strong, but I guess if I'm honest I would put is somewhere inbetween. Read more
The air freshners have all been refilled, light cord replaced and the folders have been refreshed with more up-to-date information (including new walk printouts). Thanks for bringing that to our attention.
To make sure we weren't missing something, we've had a number of people check the cottage for any sign of damp or mustiness and not been able to find any. The cottage has dehumidifiers so if the weather is damp (when the ancient "dry" stone hedges on the opposite side of the lane will be anything but "dry" and may smell musty if it's been damp for a while the wind is blowing from that direction), we recommend closing the windows and running the dehumidifiers.
Bear in mind we are in a rural environment and the average spider population in the countryside is 360 per square metre which is correlated with the fly population here, so even though we clean away cobwebs and hoover up any spiders or flies we find on a Saturday, it's inevitable some will find their way in through a window or find a nook to hide in until the coast is clear.
We only live next door, so as we say to our guests when they arrive, if you find we've missed something or maybe you've forgotten to bring something we might be able to lend you, then please ask us and we'll be more than happy to do whatever we can to help you enjoy your stay, including hoovering up any spiders that are bothering you.

Qwners were friendly and helpful throughout our weeks stay in May 2012.
A bottle of wine was a nice touch on arrival.
The Crowsnest though basic in its furnishings has the bonus of a tremendous view to the sea and surrounding countryside with conservatory and balcony to make the most of this asset.
The location is ideal to explore the North coastal attractions and Bodmin Moor.
Very good value for money. Read more
Thanks for the review. We've been expanding our selection of circular coastal walks (and the information they contain about each area) to help our visitors explore the surrounding coastline, working in a pub or 2 on the route where we can.
Excellent Value for Money Cottage
Left on 06/14/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | Newbury Couple
Well positioned for a walking or beach holiday. Friendly owners. Warm welcome. Clean and well equipped.. Excellent broadband reception plus Sky TV. Lovely verandah with scenic sea views and which captures the sun most of the day, and particularly in the evening. Read more
Much of North Cornish coast faces West (including Trebarwith Strand) so the setting sun is over the sea in the evening (and the Atlantic swells make for good surf). That also means if you're an early bird you'll find that beaches with high cliffs (like Lundy Bay or Bosinney) are in shade first thing in the morning. Trebarwith Strand fares quite well on that front as the valley is quite wide so in the middle there's usually some morning sun. If you're an insomniac, the rising sun over Bodmin Moor is spectacular and many of the stone circles are thought to have a calendric function through the alignment of lardmarks with the sunrise. Otherwise if you have more conventional sleeping hours there is a pub on Bodmin Moor called the Rising Sun serving beer brewed from moorland springwater which is a pretty good alternative.

Character cottage, ideal location with great views
Left on 04/03/2012 for a stay in August 2010 | AJB
The cottage is comfortable rather than luxurious but has everything you need. We were out and about most days but cooked in the evenings, the kitchen is well equipped to enough to rustle up an evening meal. The children made good use of the wi-fi!
The views from the back garden (and rear bedroom) towards the sea are quite stunning and the sunsets are spectacular.
The beach is approximately 20-30 minutes walk down the hill (longer on the way back as it's very steep!) but only a couple of minutes in the car. The costal path is easily reached from the cottage and we enjoyed some fabulous sunset walks along the clifftop in the evenings.
We can also recommend hot chocolate and doughnuts by the sea in Trebarwith after a body boarding session! Read more
The sunsets are particularly good in Trebarwith Valley close to the Equinoxes (March-April and September-October) when the setting sun is in line with Trebarwith Strand. Further into the Summer the sun swings to the right, so a sundowner at The Port William or picnic on Denis Point (watching the sun set across Trebarwith Strand), or a picnic on Barras Nose (with panoramic views from Tintagel Castle and Willapark) are optimally positioned for best enjoying Summer sunsets.
Enjoyed the stay

Had 4 nights and wished it could have been more. We were blessed with fabulous sunshine every day so we were lucky enought to be out and about. What a view from that balcony, to sit there with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down, couldnt ask for more. To any one that has left negative feedback, all I can suggest is that you either go back to your Travel Lodge Hotel, or you put your hand deeper in your pocket, Your not paying 500 quid a night so don't expect 500 quid a night luxury! If I was to be critical a more comfy sofa would be good but as we were out every night it wasn't a problem. Go to the Camalot Hotel for drinks, nice people. Walk from Tintagel to Boscastle along the cliff path, 4 miles of the best views in the World. Go to the Cornishman pub on the way to Padstow for a pint and some spicy food. If you need to know anything just ask Tony or his Wife, they don't bite. Oh and I found the bed comfy, a bit small but that's probably because I'm extra large with Mrs medium large next to me, we didn't fall out of bed or fall out either come to that and both slept like a log. Read more
Thanks for the review and the feedback. Based on that we've replaced the sofa with one that's softer and in our "user testing" :-) was generally agreed to be more comfortable than the previous one.

A wonderful cosy cottage with spectacular coastline views. Ideal for visiting the historic town of Tintagel, walking distance to the beach, local pub and some great country walks. The owners were very friendly and helpful. I'd recommend staying here and would probably stay here again. Read more
