The Old Workshop is located three miles from Boscastle, Tintagel and Camelford offering you a great central location to discover the beauties of the North Cornish coast. The stunning beach at Trebarwith Strand, three miles away, is just one example of what you might find along this dramatic stretch of coastline.

The South West Coast Path is a stone's throw away with some of the most challenging walks one might find on a National Path but with that comes breathtaking scenery and the occasional but perfectly placed pub!
Or if cycling takes your fancy you could discover the beauty of the Camel estury by following the popular Camel Trail.

About the neighbourhood
Come to North Cornwall and enjoy 60 miles of dramatic Atlantic Heritage Coast - cliffs, coves, market towns, farmsteads and enchanting Bodmin Moor, Country Houses and Historic castles including King Arthur's Tintagel.
