Set close to the sea, this Georgian era Fisherman’s Cottage is in the heart of north Cornwall’s picturesque and historic Boscastle. The property has open views over the River Valency towards the historic Harbour.
The house is accessed through a newly upgraded part glazed door into the open plan living room. This delightfully cosy room is the perfect place to relax after a long walk on the coastal path or shelter from the winter storms by the log burner. This double aspect room is light and airy with beamed ceilings and benefits from the charm of a beautiful slate floor which has been newly laid.
The kitchen area is fully fitted with painted cabinets and silestone work surfaces. There is a four ring electric hob and oven, fridge and dishwasher. A door from the living room leads to a corridor with an integrated washer/dryer and a newly upgraded door to the courtyard garden.
Stairs from the living room lead to the first floor landing and into a cosy double bedroom with views of the river and towards the harbour and sea. The luxurious bathroom has a bath with overhead shower, WC and hand basin with views over the rear terrace.
The rear courtyard is a sun trap and is the perfect place and size for alfresco dining or just relaxing in the sun.
Weekly and seasonal parking permits can be purchased for the Cobweb carpark. The current owner supplies these to their holidaymaker clients as a gesture of goodwill.
Boscastle is situated on the rugged north Cornish coast and is home to quaint stone-built cottages, independent shops, ice cream parlours, bistros and four pubs, as well as a charming National Trust tearoom and information centre. Boscastle is also home to the popular- and rather unusual Museum of Witchcraft and Magic. The Elizabethan quay sits amongst steep cliffs and there is a beach at low tide. Boscastle is surrounded by farmland, much of which is owned and preserved by the National Trust. The South West Coast Path is practically on your doorstep offering beautiful walks to Tintagel and Widemouth Bay or Bodmin Moor. Exeter, with its inter-city rail, airport and motorway links is some 60 miles, whilst Okehampton and Dartmoor are some 40 miles.
