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.

Had a fantastic week in this lovely little cottage. Had a quite a lot of large cobwebs but don't think it had been used recently due to covid. Once irradiated it felt cosy and comfortable. Owner very friendly and helpful.

A very comfortable and well-appointed cottage, with attractive furnishings, which kept us warm and comfortable despite the cold north winds during our stay. Very well situated at the top of Boscastle, with distant views of the sea as a bonus. The owner gave us a very warm welcome.

Whilst the owner of the cottage is lovely, informative and helpful, the cottage has a general air of neglect. Cupboards smell musty and carpet is stained. The WiFi and central heating does not work. On the plus side, the location is excellent and the bed very comfy.

Have stayed twice for location, but won't be going back. It is dirty. The mattress has a huge dip in it. There were loads of air fresheners all over the house, which were overpowering I had to clean black gunge from around the taps and clean the kitchen, left over food on the worktops etc. The wine glasses left with the bottle of wine had to be wasRead morehed before we could even use them which sort of took away from the gesture really!

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 !

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
