The property

This beautiful single-storey cottage is situated right on the famous Elizabethan harbour, overlooking the river, in the picturesque village of Boscastle.

This delightful cottage is in a spectacular ravine location, one of the most idyllic in the county, offering direct access to the famous South West Coastal Path, and a perfect base for families and friends who wish to tour the dramatic north coast of Cornwall.

Parking in your private space right next to the cottage, you enter into the porch leading you into the comfy sitting room.

There are two bedrooms here, both with fine river views, a double with en-suite facilities and a twin bedroom.

The kitchen, with dining area and bathroom, complete the accommodation.

Outside the cottage is a patio area, a perfect spot to watch the world go by and relax.

When it comes to an evening out, just a short stroll from the cottage will take you to the centre of the village.

Here you will find a choice of excellent pubs and restaurants, including the famous Cobweb Inn which, even in the winter with its two open fires, is a most welcoming Cornish pub, with a good local reputation for excellent food, and a fine choice of locally-brewed ales.

A beautifully-furnished cottage in a truly stunning location and perfect for all year round holidays and short breaks.

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.
