The property

This delightful cottage is idyllically located on a cobbled street in the heart of the picturesque fishing village of Boscastle, Cornwall.

An old fisherman's cottage, the property has been furnished and equipped to the highest standard offering all the modern day comforts to ensure the perfect holiday for families and friends alike.

The cottage is full of character which can be sensed the moment you enter the open plan living room with a fully-equipped kitchen, welcoming open fire and slate floors.

The comfortable sitting area offers a relaxing spot to enjoy the delights of your welcome pack provided by the owners which includes a bottle of the locally made, award-winning Camel Valley wine, perfect after a long journey.

There are three bedrooms here, two doubles and a single which along with the bathroom are all on the first floor.

Outside at the rear of the cottage, three small flights of reasonably steep steps lead to the relaxing patio overlooking the uneven rooftops of the crooked cottages below giving you a sense of time gone by.

The village itself is steeped in history, with its distinctive natural harbour known as one of Cornwall's most loved and romantic beauty spots.

From the cottage you are only moments from all this most popular village offers with a great collection of pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and local potteries.

Nearby too, and well worth a visit (but only for the brave!) is the Museum of Witchcraft.

The National Trust visitor centre will give you all the latest news of what is on in the surrounding area with lots of information about walks and places to visit.

One short walk well worth making for the amazing coastal views can be had by following the left hand path at the harbour; the famous blowhole can also be seen from here either side of low tide.

With being in an ideal location for touring this rugged coastal area of Cornwall, this lovely cottage offers a most comfortable base for great holidays throughout the year.

About the location


Tintagel 4 miles; Camelford 6 miles.

A perfect Cornish coastal village, the road through Boscastle runs down to the small harbour at the bottom of the hill. The quaint village shops, local restaurants and pubs offering good food, Cornish real ales and live entertainment by local musicians, make this an ever popular visitor destination. Spectacular cliff tops, rocky coves, wild surf, open fields and rich wildlife characterise this beautiful area. The coastal footpath passes through some of Britain’s most rugged and spectacular coastal scenery. The sandy beaches of Bossiney, Trebarwith Strand and Crackington Haven are all within 5 miles and the surfing beaches at Bude and Polzeath are within easy driving distance. Close at hand lie the delights of Tintagel, swathed in the legends of King Arthur, several stately homes and renowned gardens, or the wide open space of Bodmin Moor, famous for its granite tors and Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.
