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
This traditional Cornish cottage nestles on the outskirts of the village of Boscastle, just under a mile from the harbour and the seafront. You can walk around the picturesque harbour or get some lunch in a seaside cafe before venturing along the South West Coast Path to explore the many sandy beaches and sheltered coves that are abundant along this stretch of coastline. This could be a wonderful romantic retreat for a couple with up to three canine companions.
This delightful property cottage has oodles of olde-worlde charm, with exposed beams, sash windows and slanted ceilings. The kitchen/diner is well equipped to prepare a meal at home, before you retire to the cosy lounge to cuddle up on a plush sofa while you watch a favourite TV show or a movie on DVD. Upstairs, the king-size bedroom is cosy and inviting, with exposed beams, pretty windows on two sides and an extra pull-out bed, which might be suitable for a young child. Outside, you'll find a delightful enclosed patio area with a cafe style table and chairs and a BBQ.
The popular fishing town of Port Isaac (12 miles) is a fascinating place to explore: it may seem surprisingly familiar, as this is where the TV series Doc Martin is filmed. You may recognise many of the buildings and houses! The town is also full of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries. Tintagel (3 miles) has the site of the legendary King Arthur’s Castle, but the village also has a number of other attractions including craft shops, gift shops, restaurants and pubs. There are plenty of walks on offer, down to the beach and the castle site, all of them completely dog-friendly.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
