    “Destiny Cottage is charming and quaint and we had a wonderful few days there - it is in a great location although care needs to be taken when on foot as there is very little pathway if at all along the main road.”

    The cottage is well equipped and cosy. We loved the log fire and the views from the gorgeous windows. ...

    The cottage is well equipped and cosy. We loved the log fire and the views from the gorgeous windows. Our BUTs are that the mattress on the bed was very uncomfortable and lumpy. Both my husband and I woke up with stiff backs or necks each morning. Also, the rugs in the bedroom were decidedly ugly by anyone's standards and need to be in keeping with the cottage rather than dark nylon grey in one case and brown and white stringy looking. Lastly, the towel rail didn't work in the bathroom despite a previous guest noting it in the guest book - this wasn't serious enough to warrant calling the house keeper out but is a note for her for future guests. We were asked to leave by 10 am and made it out of the cottage 5 mins late at 10:05. The male housekeeper was very short with us and pointed out crossly that he had "three other cottages to clean". Since check-in is at 3pm, I would have thought the two housekeepers had plenty of time to clean them and didn't need to make us feel so bad about 5 mins. It was, sadly, a sour note to leave on and completely unnecessary.

The property

This grade II listed, terraced cottage, in an attractive row of seven, sits on the hill above and just a gentle stroll down to the centre of the famous village of Boscastle.

The cottage oozes charm, with old flagstone floors, gothic-style arched windows and knobbly walls, creating a delightful, romantic retreat for couples any time of the year.

Entry to the cottage is via arched doubled doors leading to a pretty open plan living area with well-equipped kitchen, dining area and cosy sitting area, where you can snuggle down in front of the wood burning stove after a day exploring the village.

There’s a neat, little sofa/day bed cleverly built-in under the stairs, a delightful spot for relaxing during the day.

Upstairs is a comfortable double bedroom with lovely oak floor and a bathroom.

Outside a neat, little enclosed garden overlooking a communal lawned area provides a haven of peace and tranquillity.

Just a short stroll downhill from the cottage are all the shops, pubs and cafés of this stunning village, where two rivers meet the sea in a natural harbour between steep moorland hillsides.

If you feel the need to venture further afield, explore the lovely cliff and wooded-valley walks, whilst lovely beaches at Bossiney and Trebarwith Strand are just a short drive away.

If history and folklore are your thing, head for Tintagel, rich in history and Arthurian legend.

This is a romantic cottage for couples in an ideal spot for exploring this beautiful stretch of coastline any time of 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..
