Please note: Towels not available
A traditional character cottage with uninterrupted harbour views at the seaward end of an attractive row of three, set on rising ground overlooking the Valency river as it tumbles into the picturesque National Trust harbour about 400 yards away.

The cottage is approached by a flight of 20 railed rustic steps that lead up from the private parking area below to a small lawn which fronts the cottage and a stable door which opens first to an entrance porch with an inner glazed door leading to a slate flagged hallway.

At the end of the hall there is an attractive stone floored, modern fitted kitchen with a large picture window to one side and a view over the harbour on the other. A step leads down from the hall into a beamed sitting/dining room which has a feature stone-built fireplace and a wide panoramic window which overlooks the garden and harbour below.

A carpeted staircase leads up to the first floor landing and to one side, a bathroom W.C. with low beams, hand basin and shower over the corner bath. Also off the landing are two pretty cottage-style bedrooms, the master bedroom has a kingsize bed with a beamed ceiling and fine views of the harbour and the cliffs beyond, the other smaller beamed bedroom has a double bed and a little low window facing the river.

Outside, a low walled garden has two small lawns, flower beds and a large terrace which has wooden garden furniture, perfect for al fresco dining but young children will require supervision. Boscastle harbour is a 2 minute walk as is the main village with its shops and famous 17th century Cobweb Inn. The area offers good cliff and country walking and the long sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand is about 4 miles away.

Sleeps
Close
When a property shows 'sleeps' in the format X-Y, X equals the maximum number of adults that can comfortably be accommodated and Y indicates the maximum number of adults + children that can be comfortably accommodated in the property.
Customer Rating
Close
Our rating method, the popular "smiles" system is generated entirely by the feedback we receive from our visitors. The number of smiles is arrived at by taking the average grading given to the question:

How would you rate the cottage's fittings, furnishings and equipment?’

A property will achieve a rating of 5 Smiles down to 1 Smile, although it is our policy not to carry any properties with ratings lower than 3 Smiles. The customer chooses from the following ratings:
  1. Excellent
  2. Good
  3. Satisfactory
  4. Below standard
  5. Poor
There are a number of properties that have been recently added to our portfolio and these are graded "New".
Pets
Close
There is an extra charge for pets, most commonly at £24 pppw (per pet per week).

Assistance dogs are of course welcome in all our cottages free of charge, however owners of them should be aware that a considerable number of people are allergic to dogs and in some cases can have a severe reaction. Owners are therefore encouraged, where at all possible, to choose a property which normally allows pets.

Some properties accept pets other than dogs, but in all cases we are required to confirm consent from the cottage owner. Please contact the office on 01208 895 354 if you would like to take a pet other than a dog with you to one of our cottages.

Pricing information

All prices are per week per property. Many properties promote an all inclusive price although some charge for extras such as bed linen, towels, heating and/or electricity. The Property description will detail any extra charges.

Definitions

Booked: A customer has committed to a holiday period by paying a deposit or the full amount for a rental period.

Reserved: When a property is not yet available to be booked, a customer can 'Reserve' the property in their name on a first come first served basis. When Cornish Traditional Cottages and the owner have agreed availability and pricing for your selected period we will contact you to let you know if you can then book the property in your name. A Reservation does not guarantee a booking because the owner has first right of refusal on all availability.
Short breaks
Close
There are few better places to take a short break than in Cornwall. They can frequently be arranged, mainly out of season though, for periods to suit guest's particular requirements, but there is always a minimum rental, for practical reasons.

Cornwall in the early Spring is usually blessed with fine warm weather. It is this climate which brings out the wild flowers and spectacular gardens which make this time of year such an ideal one for a holiday. During July and August and other busy times of the year short break holidays are normally only available at short notice, but please enquire and we will do our best to accommodate you.

If short breaks are available, the cost of a short break is calculated as follows:
3 nights: 70% of weekly rental price
4 nights: 80% of weekly rental price
5 nights: 90% of weekly rental price
6 nights: 100% of weekly rental price

Reservations
Close
Weeks marked as 'Reserve' (highlighted in blue) can only be 'Reserved' (ie they cannot be booked) at this point in time because availability and prices have not yet been agreed with the owner. You can reserve these weeks in your name on a first come first served basis until availability and pricing has been agreed.

It is important to note that a 'Reserved' period can only be booked if the owner wishes to make the 'Reserved' period available for booking. Upon completion of your reservation you will receive confirmation by email or post containing details of the reservation.
