In the heart of the picturesque village of Boscastle, on a bustling little residential lane is Jordan House, a stylish semi-detached family home, filled with character and set on three levels.
This historic property has a small enclosed courtyard garden to the front which has views over the valley beyond.
Entering on the ground floor, the smart fitted Shaker-style kitchen/dining room with slate floor, has a large pine table and chairs.
The cosy living room has big sofas, an open fire and colourful prints of Cornish scenes adorn the walls.
From the hall, steep stairs lead to two pretty bedrooms – a double with TV, and a twin, both with views over the courtyard garden and the hills beyond.
They share the elegant family bathroom which has a roll top bath and eye catching checkerboard floor.
On the lower ground floor is a shower-room and useful utility room.
From Jordan House, the historic harbour with its famed Museum of Witchcraft, interesting local potteries and art galleries is in walking distance.
Here you'll find quaint old buildings now converted to restaurants and coffee shops.
Much of the surrounding landscape and coastline is National Trust owned, scenery so impressive it is said to have been an inspiration to novelist Thomas Hardy who met his sweetheart Emma here whilst working as an architect on the church tower.

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.
Note: The adjoining property has a right of way along the path at the front of Jordan House. The steps leading down to this cottage are not gated so care must be taken with young children.
