Slow down and unwind in a Boscastle cottage, located in one of rural north Cornwall's most romantic villages.
A tiny dot on the map of this dramatic coastline, Boscastle invites you to discover this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, mostly owned by the National Trust. Expect incredibly beautiful scenery, amazing walks and surfing, fascinating culture and historic sites.
First stop, Boscastle's medieval harbour where you can stroll along the quayside to admire the view or pitch up an easel and capture the scene forever. Take the left hand path and see the Blowhole. Browse galleries and gift shops. Quench your thirst in a pub and your appetite in a café over homemade pasties and ice-cream sundaes.
Unravel Boscastle's intriguing past in Norman churches, Celtic crosses and ancient field patterns known as The Stitches. Visit the Old Mill and Old Forge, not forgetting the Museum of Witchcraft, filled with everything spooky. Trace the steps of Thomas Hardy - many of his poems are set in Boscastle. Then fast-forward to the flash floods of 2004 - a natural disaster that's shaped Boscastle's more recent history.
Walks range from invigorating hikes along the coastal path to leisurely rambles in the secluded Valency Valley. Join a fishing trip from the harbour. Surf the waves at Polzeath. Have fun in the rock pools on Crackington Haven and Trebarwith Strand. Seek out the idyllic sweep of sand at Bossiney Haven.
Or plan your Boscastle cottage holiday around the annual Walking Week or Food and Arts Festival - just remember to book well in advance!
