The property

This 18th century cottage stands out from the rest in the slate village of Delabole in Cornwall.

Horseshoe Cottage retains many of its original stone walls and wooden beams, and also comes within easy reach of the stunning North Cornwall coastline, making it a fabulous base for a memorable break with your friends or family.

The ground floor is brimming with character; the sitting room boasts homely touches and features, as well as a Smart TV and an open fire to make your downtime extra special.

The kitchen, graced by a stunning woodburning stove housed in a feature fireplace, offers a delightful place to prepare your hearty meals after a tiring day full of exploration and adventure.

The staircase to the first floor is traditionally narrow and steep and you’ll find both of the bedrooms; one double and one twin, both immaculately decorated and are serviced by a crisp, white family bathroom, which completes the interior of the property.

On the warmer days, sit out on your patio and enjoy a refreshing drink in this tranquil setting.

From here you can visit the beautiful coastal village of Tintagel with its charming choice of amenities and its stunning castle to admire.

The lovely fishing village of Port Isaac is also nearby and worth a visit.

About the location


Tintagel 3.5 miles; Camelford 5 miles; Port Isaac 6 miles.

At one time the producer of the world’s best quality building and ornamental slate, this now sleepy village is just 2.5 miles from the high cliffs and dramatic scenery of the north Cornish coastline. Perfectly placed for walking the South West coastal path, exploring the high places of nearby Bodmin Moor, or for lazing on the beach at nearby Trebarwith Strand, it’s a well-placed holiday base. The peaceful harbour village of Port Isaac and the town of Tintagel, with its tourist attractions and King Arthur’s legendary castle, are both a short drive, while the stunning surfing beach at Polzeath is a mere nine miles away. Slaughtersbridge, where King Arthur reputedly fought his last battle, is five minutes away and a drive north along the coast takes in the beautiful cove at Crackington Haven. An area away from the main tourist crowds, but very central to a vast array of places and activities. Delabole Quarry itself is just down the road and is an interesting tourist attraction with stunning views. It is the gateway to great countryside walks.
