A former 16th century Inn, this delightful picturesque cottage is a perfect retreat and base to explore the historic village of Boscastle and beyond.
Formerly a 16th-century inn, this historic, quirky cottage is full of charm. Situated just above the pretty village of Boscastle in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it is ideal for a family or couples seeking a Cornish property with character.
With its exposed beams, stone walls and flagstone floors, this delightful old property oozes history. The comfortable lounge, with its leather sofas and woodburner, is perfect for relaxing in the evening as the sun dips down. Cook up a meal in the spacious, well-equipped kitchen/diner – an ideal space for socialising after a day out in the sunshine. A second sitting area – the snug – offers a cosy alternative to the lounge and is a quiet space to relax with the newspaper after breakfast. The steep staircase leads up to three comfortable bedrooms, all of them full of character with exposed beams and sloping ceilings, and with stunning views of the lush countryside. Outside, the enclosed, private courtyard offers a delightful space to sit back with a drink and soak up the sunshine.
The picturesque village of Boscastle is full of history and its spectacular surrounding coastline has inspired many writers and artists, including Thomas Hardy. Further afield, the stunning coastline of North Cornwall beckons you. Wend your way through the scenic countryside to spectacular Tintagel (4.5 miles), the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, or head further south to picture-perfect Port Isaac (12 miles). For a day at the beach, glorious Bude (14 miles) is an easy 15-mile drive away.
