  • Mr Ellis

    “Disappointed that the cottage had not been clean properly in the current climate.”

    Found socks from a previous occupant and our dog found cod liver oil tablets on the floor. The cottage was nice but could do with a tidy up and definitely needed to be cleaned properly. Also the towels provided had some stains.

The property

A Grade II listed, terraced cottage in an attractive row of seven on the hill winding down 250 yards to Boscastle village centre with its shops/pubs/restaurants; harbour, 500 yards (leafy footpath down from opposite side of access lane).

In front, own small enclosed garden (table/chairs) looking over a larger, communal lawned area (benches), although the garden is enclosed, it is not dog proof. Inside, pretty cottage furnishings and original character and charm: lovely old flagstoned floor (rugs) downstairs, gothic-style arched windows/doors and knobbly beams/walls/floors.

From the garden, arched double doors to porch.

Open-plan living/dining/kitchen (microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker) with TV/DVD and fireplace (woodburner), cosy for dining or sitting (additional sofa/day bed cleverly built-in under stairs).

Up steep stairs (5'4" ceiling in places), with a glimpse of fields, a double bedroom (bed with footboard) with oak floor (rug); bathroom (suite, shower over bath) with washing machine and cupboard for clothes-hanging (no wardrobe in bedroom).

No children, except pre-crawling babies.

A sweet cottage in a handy spot for walking/exploring the coast. Boscastle: famous village (pubs) where two rivers meet the sea in a natural harbour between steep moorland hillsides.

Very lovely cliff and wooded-valley walks.

Pretty low-tide sand beach at Bossiney, 2 miles, or bigger Trebarwith Strand (surfing), 5; Tintagel, 3.

Pony-trekking locally.

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.

Note: This property does not accept children except babes in arms.
