This charming character stone cottage is very handy for the centre of the old town and all the facilities that Camelford has to offer. The cottage has been comfortably and attractively furnished and offers flexible accommodation for a couple, two couples or a small family. Camelford is an attractive and ancient town built on the banks of the river Camel and is located about 6 miles inland from the delightful coastal villages of Boscastle and Tintagel and also Bossiney and Trebarwith Strand beaches. Camelford has its fair share of Arthurian legend links, with some believing that the camel in Camelford hints at this pretty little market town once being Camelot itself. Superb walking trails and picturesque valleys surround Camelford, being as it lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor and sits 700 foot above sea level, making it one of the highest towns in England. There are numerous buildings of historic interest in the town including the 16th century Mason's Arms, once an old coaching inn, and only a minutes walk away.

Camelford, situated within a few miles of the wild and rugged North Cornish coast, is perhaps best known for its history and its reputed links with King Arthur and the many stories and legends associated with him. One of the principal attractions of the area is King Arthur's castle, perched precariously atop the craggy and weathered cliffs. Those who are feeling adventurous might like to explore Merlin's Cave below the castle, which can be accessed at low tide. If you have an urge to get out and about exploring the landscape, a good option is to book a trip with Cornish Heritage Safaris, who offer a variety of tours of the local area, and can tell you some of the many stories, myths and legends associated with this part of Cornwall. In the town itself you can visit to the North Cornwall Museum and Gallery, with its exhibitions of the way of life of the local area in the early part of the last century, including traditional tools and crafts- a must for anyone interested in local history and traditions. Further out, and commanding spectacular views from most of the town, are the moors where you can spend hours walking and investigating rocky outcrops and windswept hills- if you've brought your canine companion, he'll love you for it!
