The best thing about:

Cornish coastal hideaways don't come any lovelier than this one. Harbourside Cottage is cosy, romantic and perfectly placed in the heart of historic Boscastle.

The walk to the beach

A 300 metre level potter along the riverside brings you to the ancient harbour where the river meets the ocean.

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.

  • Lovely, clean and cosy gorgeous little cottage. Very nice little touch with the Prosecco and snacks. Comfy bed and great shower. Superb location - we loved spending our mini moon there. Thank you so much.

  • The property itself is full of character, charm, and stunning period features, yet fitted with everything you need for like super fast WiFi, smart tv, dishwasher etc. Boscastle is breathtaking and being on the doorstep of such a magical place, in a property like this- you can't ask for much more in a holiday.

  • Harbourside was perfect for a mini break. Located in pretty Boscastle, it provided a great base for coastal and countryside walks. The cottage was lovely, being well appointed with everything we needed - exactly as described. Highly recommended base for exploring Northern Cornwall.
