Reevescott Retreat is a treat indeed
My wife and I stayed in Reevescott Retreat for one week, second week in September and found the accommodation and views to be excellent. Reevescott is situated between Boscastle and Tintagel and within walking distance of St Nectan's Glen spectacular waterfall. The views down to the sea and coastline are complemented by beautiful sky scapes as the sun sets, a real artist's paradise. Reevescott Retreat provides a unique holiday experience that I would recommend to all.
Dream stay in a beautiful place
We stayed here before and after our wedding day and had the best time. The house is clean with lovely modern but homely finishes. Sarah and Paul were amazing hosts and so kind to us during our stay.
We had the best view and lovely coffee on the patio looking out at sea. Different beautiful skies and sunsets every day. We had rain and sunshine and loved it all. Such a beautiful location with lovely kind friendly people who leave you alone but are on hand if you need anything. It’s near enough to villages but outside enough to feel remote and really in the countryside. Walking distance to the woods and st nectans glen waterfall. 30-40 minute drive to Bodmin or Wadebridge for supermarket shops.
Comfy bed, lovely hot shower, and a dream location. We couldn’t have asked for more.l and are so grateful to Sarah and Paul.
Another wonderful holiday in Cornwall using Reevescott Retreat as a base. As ever Reevescott was a clean, tidy and well equipped home from home.
Great hosts and beautiful place ! Would recommend location for walking to coastal path and area for eating out in pubs.
A Little Gem
If you are looking for a very comfortable and convenient place to stay on the North Cornish coast, this is it.
Whilst it is not big, it has more than enough space for two for a very relaxed and enjoyable stay. It is also fitted out with everything you need to make your stay complete.
The patio area is a great place to sit anytime of day but late afternoons when the sun is seting over the sea and headland are special.
Your hosts Paul and Sarah are on hand should you need and they can provide a wealth of knowlwedge of where to go and what to see. Having said that they are never intrusive and just let you get on with things.
You will also meet Nancy and Henry, their two dogs who are both vey friendly, especially Nancy who is always so pleased to see you.
Go and enjoy!
Recent stay at Reevescott Retreat
The location of the property is superb with wonderful views out to sea. It had everything we needed and more.
The welcome pack of a Cornish cream tea and the flowers were a lovely touch and much appreciated. It was within easy reach easy reach of many places to visit. We really enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in returning.
Trethevy is a delightful hamlet, equidistant from Boscastle and Tintagel and has a history which may well go back to 250 AD when a granite post was inscribed with C DOMI N GALLO ET VOLUS – ‘For the Emperor Caesars our lords Gallus and Volusian' this can now be found outside St Piran a former monastery and now private residence, Trethevy is also home to St Nectans Glen a beautiful valley where the River Trevillet has carved its way through the slate and formed a beautiful 60' waterfall.
Boscastle is a tiny port set in a narrow ravine, the town came into prominence recently as a result of terrible floods in the summer of 2004. There is a pottery in the village and several gift shops. A footpath to the left of the quayside will take you to the 'Lookout' which is a wonderful vantage point from which to view the rugged coastline. Boscastle was once a favourite meeting place of the author Thomas Hardy, and is the location for one of his novels 'A Pair of Blue Eyes'. Boat trips can be taken from the harbour as far as Long Island, where during the breeding season you may see razorbills, puffins & guillemots. There is a demanding 7 mile coastal path walk between Boscastle and Crackington Haven. There are several attractions along this stretch of coast including Strangles beach at the bottom of a large landslip with a rock arch the Northern Door. Just south of here is High Cliff which is the highest point on the Cornish coast path. Don't forget to visit Pentargon inlet which has an imposing waterfall that cascades down to the sea below.
On Bodmin Moor, Dozmary pond is thought to contain Arthur's Excalibur, and Merlin is thought to be still found walking under Tintagel Island. Camelford is a great centre for touring, walking, fishing, swimming or surfing holidays. The town is steeped in history and has excellent shopping and sporting facilities. Port Isaac is the location of the televisions series Poldark and more recently Doc Martin, as well as being a gorgeous working fishing village. Bodmin Jail built in 1778, notorious for its public executions by hanging, was the first jail to be built housing inmates in individual cells. The Jail closed in 1927 and is now a museum open to the public, which during the First World War housed the Crown Jewels and the Doomsday Book. The famous Camel Trail follows the route of the old railway along traffic free paths for 18 miles, providing the whole family with a fairly flat cycle through Bodmin and Wadebridge, and out to Padstow where you can sample Rick Steins famous Fish and Chips. The market town of Launceston is the capital of Cornwall and well worth a visit to see the church of St Mary Magdelene, with granite carvings, unusual among Cornish churches.
