Description

Where Is It?Harbourside Cottage is an adorable classic cottage situated right in the heart of Boscastle, overlooking the village and valley beyond.

Rich in mysticism and history, Boscastle's sleepy demeanour belies its legendary past. Surrounded by mossy woodlands and secluded waterfalls, the village follows the path of a narrow river through the valley and between two mighty headlands that frame the ocean. Boscastle's shoreline isn't one of sweeping sands, but children can still dip their toes where the river flows into the sea, and at low tide a small beach is revealed.

The village is in the heart of miles of rambling woodland and blossoming wildflower. Valency Valley nearby has links to Thomas Hardy and the call of woodpeckers, jays and chaffinches can be heard through the rustling leaves. A slow walk from Boscastle Harbour leads to Pentargon Waterfall, a place filled with an air of magic as the witch's museum can be visited nearby. Likewise, St Nectan's glen is a haven for wildlife and the subject of many a whispered tales about fairies, piskies and spirits.

Drive further afield towards Tintagel, a seaside village famous for its castle, rugged coastline, and rocky valley.
