Home Farm Farmhouse Boscastle is a beautifully presented authentic Cornish Farmhouse that has spacious living accommodation as well as four luxurious double en-suite bedrooms. Situated on a working National Trust farm the owners can provide you with lots of helpful information, as well as great produce, eggs from their chickens and you may be tempted by their own made sausages or visit their newly opened Deli/Cafe in the village. There is a very pleasant garden with a raised decked area for al fresco meals, and to enjoy the views which stretch out to sea, as far as Lundy Island. This is a great cottage for a larger family or a group of friends to share.
On the same farm is Home Farm Cottage, which is equally well presented and offers the same excellent taste of Cornish hospitality, just on a smaller scale to the Farmhouse. This cottage has so many extra little touches and genuine furniture pieces, it will be a delight to holiday here. A large garden to the front of the cottage is a great space for all the family and it also enjoys those wide open sky and sea views.
Olde Carpenters Cottage sits on the riverbank in the heart of Boscastle, towards the harbour. In the same ownership as the previous two cottages you are immediately aware of the style, taste and luxurious touches, of the accommodation on offer. The 5 Star rating is well deserved. With a small patio and parking space to the front you could just sit and watch life along the riverside go by.
The Garden Place is a really lovely, pet friendly garden apartment, with views over the ancient rooftops of Boscastle to the Jordan Valley. The living room is so cosy with wood panelled walls and a welcoming contemporary style log-burner. No matter what season you wish to explore the surrounding countryside, you are assured of a cosy romantic bolt-hole on your return home.
Bosacstle is an interesting village to use as a base for your holiday. In lovely weather the children will enjoy paddling in the stream or fishing by the harbour walls. The South West coastal path meanders though the village and over the headlands for the more energetic walkers. Great surfing can be had at a number of beaches that are easy to reach, the closest being Trebarwith Strand about 5 miles away. This fantastic iconic Cornish beach has limited parking so arrive early to get your space. Once settled you can swim, surf, rock-pool and then either buy ice-creams or enjoy a great Pub lunch at The Port William on the beach.
There are events planned throughout the year and Boscastle Festival is a good place to check out what's on and when, especially for details of who may be guesting at the Food, Arts and Crafts Festival in October, a really special happening every year in the village.
