In countryside on hills between Boscastle (2 miles) and Tintagel (2½ miles), a handsome detached stone-built house with magnificent views out to sea and along the lovely north Cornish coast. The large, secluded garden (picnic benches) faces out to sea, with plenty of lawn space for children to play or in which to relax peacefully.

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.
