This truly delightful semi-detached cottage was once a former chapel, positioned in a quiet spot adjacent to the river. Perfectly placed in the much sought-after village of Boscastle.

This quirky two-bedroom cottage is a great base for small families or couples visiting the Cornish village of Boscastle. You’ll be thrilled to see a stream running right beside the house and a pub just a few minutes down the road. Once everyone’s explored the upside-down layout, it’s an easy stroll down the hill to the picturesque harbour and coast path.

Despite its traditional exterior, inside the house has a bright, modern feel with plenty of coastal touches from driftwood mirrors to a decorative bunch of mackerel in the kitchen. Set the kids up with breakfast downstairs in the kitchen, and open up the stable door to hear the river trickling past. Or take your coffee outside to the secluded courtyard garden while the pooch happily mooches about. After a long day exploring, you’ll all be keen to retreat upstairs to the living/dining room where there’s room enough for everyone to spread out. We’re sure Fido will claim that top spot right in front of the wood burner.

Young families will find ample entertainment in the village itself, less than half a mile away, with a variety of ice cream venues, cafes and excellent crabbing off the harbour wall. The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic is an intriguing place for older kids and just behind the cottage is the site of the village’s namesake Bottreaux Castle, which is a good spot for a morning dog walk. Walkers and energetic dogs will be in their element with miles of coastal walks on the South West Coast Path just half a mile from the house. And don’t miss a trip to one of the many beautiful sandy beaches like Bossiney Haven, 3 miles away, or the more family-friendly Trebarwith Strand, 5 miles – both of which allow dogs all year.

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

This lovely little cottage did the job perfectly. Spacious allocated parking was a treat. Good access to walks and well placed trips out. Not great weather when we stayed but this was a cosy little place to return to. The log burner was a bonus.

Absolutely fascistic place to stay with the family in the lovely village of Boscastle. A real home from home. The cottage is extremely well equipped and very clean. It's a great location as there is lots a short drive away. Definitely recommended.

Great location only a short drive to other costal areas . The cottage was well equipped and a welcoming gift was thoughtful . Only downside be aware if you do walk into village centre be ready for the steep up hill walk back (10 mins)

Lovely cottage. Really relaxing to hear the trickle of water whilst going to sleep. Boscastle is stunning, and some lovely shops and pubs. The locals are really welcoming.
