Boscastle, Helpful Holidays

Boscastle is a famous village (and yes, there certainly are pubs) where two rivers meet the sea in a natural harbour between steep moorland hillsides, perfect for lovely cliff and wooded-valley walks.

There are two beaches nearby, with Bossiney offering a pretty low-tide sand beach, and the bigger Trebarwith Strand which is perfect for surfing.

The house, in the heart of Boscastle, is an ancient terraced cottage about 500 yards up the steep hill from the harbour, where you can spend your days visiting the delightful cafés, shops and pubs.

The inside of this little property is smart and stylish with tiled floors with rugs downstairs and wood floorswith rugs upstairs. The cosy living room with woodburner, leather sofa gives you and views up the lane of other pretty cottages/gardens and leads to a dining room with pine table and benches with French windows to garden.

As this is an old terraced cottage, don’t expect a gargantuan cooking space. Instead, this property offers a sweet little kitchen with handcrafted cupboards and worktops made from a local beech tree.

Head up the steepish stairs to three attractive bedrooms; two doubles, and a single, and simply enjoy being in a perfect property in a perfect part of Cornwall.
