  • "Destiny Cottage is absolutely superb."

    The location is fantastic, just a hundred yards from the centre of beautiful Boscastle. The on-site parking is very convenient too. This delightfully quirky cottage is situated right next to the National Trust Panoramic Path, which leads through the woods down to the harbour and is ideal for safely taking the dog for a walk. The cottage kitchen is very well equipped indeed. All the plumbimg and heating worked without any problems as did the wifi and all electrical items. The woodburner was easy to use and enhanced the cottage atmosphere tremendously. Comfy bed, lovely new shower and the whole place was surprisingly warm, considering it was November. Can't think of anything negative to say about this delightful place to stay. Thank you so very much, Robert & Cilla (& Louis) Nov 2023.

  • "The cottage was in a nice location just a short walk down to the main village along a path nice walk for the dog."

    The cottage itself was tidy , my only concerns were possibly leave more cleaning supplies, ie a squeegee for the shower, and a cleaning cloth for the sink, and maybe some antibacterial cleaning chemicals. Also it would be better if a clothes airer was available coat hangers in the small cupboard upstairs is cold and not suitable, . The mattress on the bed was uncomfortable humps and hollows, could really do with upgrading, . Also please put a jug in the kitchen utensils cupboard. Would definitely recommend this little cottage for a relaxing break.

  • "This is a very nice holiday cottage indeed."

    Clean, as described, and well equipped. We've stayed in Boscastle many times and love the area and this was a great place to stay. The footpath opposite was a Godsend, avoiding a blind bend on a hill, but it does bypass the entire village and lead you down to the harbour instead. At some point you need to brave the road! I didn't find the bed especially comfortable. Those sloping floor (expected in a Victorian cottage) left me with the sensation of sleeping on a slope! A minor point to be sure! I'd use this cottage again.

  • "We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week stay at Destiny Cottage, Boscastle."

    The cottage was clean and welcoming on arrival with the lovely touch of complimentary milk and biscuits. It is very well equipped with all essentials in the kitchen and comfy furnishings. We enjoyed the addition of having Netflix to pass away the evenings now it's dark earlier. The cottage was ideally placed for the village and visiting surrounding areas - we particularly liked the woodland walk to the harbour which we did with the dog every day. The Cobweb pub in the village is a must for fabulous meals and the bakery was very handy for fresh bread and yummy pasties. Looking to book again for next year already.

  • "A well positioned cottage and tastefully furnished."

    The stone floor is lovely and the original oak floorboards upstairs are beautiful. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen had plenty of space. However, the cottage smelled very strongly of dog and we are dog owners ourselves although we had no dog with us. Considering the small amount of soft furnishings / carpet in the design of the cottage this is hard to understand. I was forced to buy some incense sticks in the village to hide the smell. The chair/stools/sofa and stair carpet need to be cleaned and perhaps a nice stick diffuser purchased by the owner.

    Great to see the character retained along with modern living essentials. Maybe we were unlucky that the previous occupants had a rather whiffy dog, that was the only downside. But we appreciate it is listed as dog friendly, and it didn't detract greatly. Would certainly book again.

  • "A delightful cottage with a well maintained green area in front of the house which was brilliant for our dog."

    Right opposite was a path leading to the harbour which meant we could access the village without walking down the steep road (no path for about 100 yards). There was an alternative path equally close which led onto the South West Coast Path. We only used the car on one day. A well equipped and maintained cottage. The stairs are quite steep and the floors give a nod to the age of the building as they slope towards the rear of the property!

    It's in a great location for walks around Boscastle. I love not having to use my car. The new shower was great and the up dating of the garden so you could sit outside on nice days.Also on the cool evenings the log burner was fantastic. Shame about the day bed we always thought it added to the cottages charm. But we did have a lovely week there. I am sure we will be back for another week there soon. Many Thanks.

The property

Destiny Cottage is a 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 in Cornwall.

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 Destiny 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.

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.

Although the garden is enclosed, it is not dog proof.

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 Crackington Haven, 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.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

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.
