Want to wake up in the middle of an idyllic village listening to the sound of the river gently flowing out to sea? Then a break at The Boathouse is your answer. Situated in a dream location in the picturesque village of Boscastle overlooking the harbour, on Cornwall's breathtaking Atlantic coast, is this cosy bolthole; the perfect escape for walkers, couples and any four-legged friends in tow. With the historic harbour, galleries, shops, pubs and restaurants right on your doorstep and magical walks along the stunning coastal footpath and wooded valleys only a stone's throw away, what more could you want from the ultimate Cornish fishing village experience.
On the ground floor is a large entrance hall and utility-room perfect for storing walking gear, surfboards and drying off the odd wet dog! All the living accommodation is located on the first floor giving you a little more privacy above the hustle and bustle and making the most of the views from both the open plan living area and bedroom. If you want to get a little closer to the view, a small terrace area at the front is a lovely spot to enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets at the end of a thrilling day in north Cornwall.
And what might that day have had in store? Time spent heading along the coast to discover stunning seascapes and secluded coves, taking to the waves at Trebarwith or Crackington Haven or walking in the footsteps of King Arthur at Tintagel and the legendary Merlin's Cave. You may venture to picture perfect Port Isaac, home to The Fisherman's Friends, the Good Food Guide's (2018) number one restaurant and TV's Doc Martin, or take the foot ferry from Rock to bustling Padstow to enjoy every culinary delight, from fine dining to fish and chips sat on the harbour wall.
