Proudly perched on a hill overlooking the unspoilt harbour village of Boscastle, this 200-year-old cottage with its characterful exposed beams and sash windows offers a romantic couples' retreat on the north Cornish coast

Proudly perched on a hill overlooking the unspoilt harbour village of Boscastle, this 200-year-old cottage with its characterful exposed beams and sash windows offers a romantic couples' retreat on the north Cornish coast. Days here can be spent ambling along the waterfront bobbing with colourful fishing boats, indulging in a cream tea in one of the friendly cafes, and venturing along the coast path to one of the golden stretches of sand and hidden coves that are dotted along this spectacular stretch of coastline.

Whether enjoying a morning coffee on the shaded patio or curling up in front of the electric fire after a day spent in the briny sea air, relaxation reigns at Boscastle Seagull. When you fancy a cosy night in, the well-equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare and cook something delicious, perhaps some fresh, locally caught fish. Then drift off to sleep beneath crisp sheets in the charmingly rustic double bedroom, and dream of Cornish adventures to come.

Pop your walking boots on and trek the beautiful wooded Valency Valley, just 3 miles from the cottage or immerse yourself in the history, myths and stunning scenery at Tintagel, 4 miles away, where a visit to its legendary castle and St Nectan's Glen are a must. For more beaches, shops, eateries and galleries, the popular fishing town of Port Isaac is 13.5 miles and Padstow is 25 miles away, which is worth the visit for Rick Stein's fish and chips alone.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The cottage is at the top of a steep hill, on staying there I noticed there were many other cottages in the area closer to Boscastle itself and its facilities.

Nice owner that lives next door. Good places to walk the dogs and lots of dog friendly places to eat. The dogs liked to listen at the internal connecting door to the owners dogs. Low beams in the bedroom so mind your head. Comfortable lounge and nice kitchen. Very poor phone signal and wi-fi.

Warm welcome from the owner - not so warm welcome from the property. We visited during a cold rainy spell in June and could have done with more efficient heating ! This property is actually called Seagull Cottage and shares the parking space with Seagull Barn next door - parking is ok if arriving in a small vehicle !

Lovely little cottage, ideal for the two of us (and the dog).Perfectly situated to explore all of the beautiful places in north Cornwall. Also very close to the Napoleon pub which was one of our favourite pub finds in recent visits!

Perfect setting in Boscastle, a sleepy coastal town at this time of year. We had a perfect holiday with our dogs at this extremely dogfriendly place. Very friendly owner showed us hidden hiking trails. Pub nearby and others and shops are in walking distance. Well definitely come back.

Our second visit to this delightful cottage. The kitchen is well-equipped and the atmosphere is one of cosy comfort. Sonia, the owner (lives next door), was always available for any queries, but not at all intrusive. Great base to explore the North Cornish coast, with easy access to a multitude of dog-friendly beaches. This lovely cottage is locateRead mored at the top end of Boscastle, just around the corner from The Napoleon, which serves good pub fare and is dog-friendly. Thoroughly recommend. Hide

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
