    “This is a lovely little cottage, ...”

    This is a lovely little cottage, with some great features. It is in a wonderful location high up in Boscastle, within a few steps of the fabulous Napoleon pub, but a very long walk with a very steep climb back from the harbour and main centre (we only ever used the car). The property was overall clean and well serviced, but it needs air fresheners because it smells musty and that didn't go away all weekend until we brought some air fresheners. There are also no opening windows to the front ...

    This is a lovely little cottage, with some great features. It is in a wonderful location high up in Boscastle, within a few steps of the fabulous Napoleon pub, but a very long walk with a very steep climb back from the harbour and main centre (we only ever used the car). The property was overall clean and well serviced, but it needs air fresheners because it smells musty and that didn't go away all weekend until we brought some air fresheners. There are also no opening windows to the front bedrooms and the kitchen which made it very hot and stuffy on a lovely bank holiday weekend. The timber beams, quirky bathroom with steps to a window, and the coffin drop in the lounge ceiling are all great features. It does however have no garden area, which is a shame as it is 'dog friendly'. The mattresses on the single beds in the smaller bedroom need replacing, they are awful and my 10 year old son was unable to sleep on them. The cottage is very small (compact and bijou), and with 5 of us for the weekend it was just about bearable. There is very little chance of getting a spot for parking (we ended up having to use the doctors surgery close by which was only ok because it was bank holiday weekend). My only other gripe is that one of the 2 main bedrooms the bed is pushed up against a wall so you have to climb over the other person to get out, not ideal after partaking of a few pints at the Napoleon!! It is unique and charming, but we felt over-priced for a postage stamp size cottage with no external space, ground floor bathroom, and no parking.

The property

This 16th century Cornish mid terrace cottage is one of the oldest properties in the North Cornwall harbour village of Boscastle built at the same time as the nearby Napolean Inn.

The cottage is steeped in history from the original coffin drop in the sitting room to the beams in the bedroom constructed from a 16th century ship wreck.

Families have everything they need to enjoy a memorable holiday, whatever the time of year.

Upon entering you will be welcomed by an open plan sitting area with electric wood burner.

Family meals can be enjoyed on the dining table, gather round and enjoy a cooked breakfast or supper. The kitchen is at the front of the cottage and is well equipped.

On the ground floor you will also find a family bathroom with a coastal feel, matched in blue and white colours, creating a lovely place to get ready or unwind after a long day.

Take the stairs and you will arrive at a twin bedroom and two double bedrooms all have some lovely features and thought has been put into the decoration and styling so all guests can feel right at home.

Outside you can admire the lovely setting or wander into the village of Boscastle with its local restaurants and quaint village shops, along with live entertainment.

Spectacular cliff tops, rocky coves, open fields and rich wildlife characterize this beautiful area.

The sandy beaches of Bossiney, Trebarwith Strand and Crackington Haven are all within five miles.

About the location

BOSCASTLE

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.
