Harbourside Cottage, Boscastle
You know you must be in a relaxing place when your toughest decision of the day is which flavour ice cream to choose. That is what it’s like in the historic coastal town of Boscastle, and this luxury fisherman’s cottage, with romantic wood burning stove and peaceful views, is a great place for a romantic retreat. It’s pet friendly too.
If you are a fan of the seaside then this is an ideal location. Set well back from the road, Harbourside Cottage is a peaceful hideaway just a 300 metre potter to Boscastle’s ancient harbour, where the river meets the ocean. It’s a North Cornish beauty spot, complete with steep cliffs, an ancient, picturesque harbour and a cluster of quaint cottages, cafes and shops.
Step inside your cottage and you’ll find an open plan living, dining and kitchen area, giving the cottage a spacious feel. There’s table and two chairs for a romantic dinner for two, which you can cook up in the modern kitchen space. In the evenings, relax in front of your wood burning stove, where you also have modern entertainment at your fingertips, with Freeview and Chromecast, a DVD player and Wi-Fi.
The romantic retreat itself has been thoughtfully renovated to retain lots of period features, including the wood burning stove, deep slate-lined window recesses and original beams. We like the light feel of this retreat – all the white and wood makes this a very chilled out space.
The luxury bedroom has a comfy double bed, and there’s a bathroom with bath and shower. Should you want to thoroughly unwind, you can also gaze out at views of the river and the headland towards the sea.
Outside, you can enjoy your own secluded ‘sun trap’ courtyard with decking, table and chairs and a coal barbeque. There is parking at the public harbour car park, with the cost covered for you by the Harbourside Cottage welcomes up to two small and well behaved dogs for a small additional fee. The cottage is a no smoking retreat.
Boscastle is well-placed when it comes to exploring Cornwall, with plenty of classic beaches, towns and attractions within easy driving distance. Within walking distance, you will find The Wellington Hotel, with its own restaurant, The Riverside Restaurant and laid back pub The Cobweb Inn. There’s the Harbour Lights Tea Garden to investigate and Boscastle Fishing Co – a fresh fish store, for a real taste of the coastline.
This is a place steeped in history, associated with authors and artists who have been inspired by its remoteness and rugged beauty. If you like walking, or at least strolling, then head in the footsteps of the famous novelist Thomas Hardy and take the path through the woods and up the valley to St. Juliot’s Church. You can see the Old Rectory where Hardy stayed and met his sweetheart Emma while he was an architect working on the church tower.
