The property

Once part of the stables for The Wellington Hotel which can be found opposite, this charming cottage is now one of three stone abodes created from this historic building, resting in Boscastle, Cornwall.

Pencliffe boasts a pretty cottage style from both the exterior and interior, and presents an excellent choice for a family or group of five guests looking to delight in a coastal holiday.

On the ground floor, an inviting arrangement of leather seating are within the living room/diner, set before a homely woodburning stove, you can certainly see yourself winding down in here at the end of a fun-filled day.

Set up the folding table for an evening meal and talk over the coming events and activities, having prepared delicious food in the pretty kitchen.

Enjoying light and bright colours as well as excellent appliances, the kitchen space has all you need for a great self-catered stay, with country-cottage style touches throughout adding character all atop the classic slate flooring.

A double bedroom rests on this floor too, while upstairs you can find the remaining two, including another double, and a king-size room, with various beautiful antique furniture pieces used to provide fabulous decoration and storage for your belongings.

The lovely bathroom holds a bath with a shower attachment over, freshen up in here after a warm coastal walk in summer.

Sit out on the front patio and people watch as people come and go from The Wellington Hotel, as you enjoy an evening drink before you and your group pop over the road to sample the ales for yourself in the bar.

Just down the road you can find a general shop for any supplies, and within walking distance is Boscastle Harbour; stroll here and on the way back visit The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, home to the largest collection of witch-inspire items, it is a quirky place sure to amaze.

For some excellent scenery, head up to Warren Point before continuing along the South West Coast Path, and come to Tintagel Castle, an historic landmark said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, with a statue of him atop the cliff to commemorate this legend.

With pretty villages like Port Isaac further south, and the beach of Crackington Haven to the north, Pencliffe offers a great location from which to enjoy Cornwall.

    We are really glad that enjoyed Boscastle and the surrounding areas. We are really sorry that there weren’t enough frying pans for you. We thought one would be enough. We will definitely make sure that more are provided for future guests. - Sykes owner relations

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.
