    • “Very nice cottage, couldn’t fault it. My only concern is the location. There is no footpath to Boscastle Harbour, only a main road and a one way road. I would recommend using the one way road to the harbour (Dunn street) and avoid the main road altogether. There is a shortcut down forrabury hill, across the main road down to Dunn street.The walk back to the cottage is uphill and very steep, but using the shortcut only takes ten minutes. This was fine for me as I am physically active, however my dad is pushing 80 so I had to use the car to take him to the harbour. It’s a very short walk to the napoleon inn pub from the cottage that even my dad could manage. So if you don’t mind walking I would highly recommend potters cottage!”

    • “A very well equipped cottage which was in extremely good condition. Highly recommended.”

    Mr Griffith, Stockport, May 2018

    • “Our holiday was brilliant and the bungalow is lovely. It is very quiet despite being amongst other houses. The one small problem was that there weren't any oven gloves so I have brought this to the attention of the caretaker. The reason for 'failed to meet expectations' is that I tried to call Sykes on the number on the booking confirmation just before we went and could not get through. I pressed all the numbers it asked but it didn't go through and just cut out when it said it would put me through to an assistant. I had to ring Helpful Holidays' number to have my query dealt with which was handled reasonably well. I am happy for you to publish the first two sentences about the bungalow as it is lovely to stay there. You won't want to publish the rest!!”

The Property

… 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.

Regional Information

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 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.
