In the heart of Boscastle, a Grade II listed cottage (once several cottages) at the end of a row, about 500 yards up (steep hill) from the harbour and pub (good food).
To one side of the cottage is parking for two cars and, beyond this and accessed via road, a fenced patio garden on three levels (table/chairs, barbecue) with bridge leading over a stream to wild, terraced woodland garden with pretty Jordan Valley views (toddlers beware) and another cottage garden beyond.
Inside, slate floors, beams and bags of character, with contemporary furnishings.
Porch (for coats/boots).
Large kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, freezer, fridge, double-oven electric range-style cooker) with beech worktops.
Snug with toys, through to living room with inglenook (woodburner), slate floor, TV/DVD and iPod dock.
Three steps down to outer passage with tumble drier, larder fridge and room for bicycles/surfboards.
Stairs up to landing and four bedrooms - two double, and two twin; bathroom (suite, shower over bath), shower-room (suite) and loo.
A comfortable, well-equipped cottage, excellent for walking the Coast Path (useful bus service for one-way journeys), and with good pubs and tea rooms in the village.
