… at the top of Boscastle, 500 yards from one of the three excellent pubs, a totally transformed 1960s detached bungalow quietly tucked into a little no through lane. Lots of work and thought have created a neat, convenient home with enclosed back garden (decking, summer house, table/chairs, barbecue) and plenty of parking. The picture-postcard harbour is about 600 yards downhill; the stunning Coast Path with spectacular walks for the fit to Tintagel (5 miles) or Crackington Haven (6 miles) is even closer.
From front garden, 3 steps up to front door; hall (space for coats/boots); living room with woodburner, TV/DVD and big sliding glazed doors to decking; kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric cooker). Two bedrooms – a double (5’ bed), and a twin; shower-room (suite with splendid roomy shower). Arrival after 4pm. No children under 2, except pre crawlers. A brilliant place for walkers.
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.
All one level, two bedrooms: 1 x kingsize double, 1 xtwin. Sitting room with wood burning stove, kitchen with dining area. Bathroom with shower cubicle, basin and WC.
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.
