The property

Within a few minutes walk of Boscastles' harbour, this most captivating and enchanting cottage boasts a beautifully styled interior; impeccably presented and bursting with personality and comfort. With a delightful fusion of character and quirkiness, Brambles makes an ideal getaway for families and friends or a romantic rendezvous for couples, guaranteed to tempt you back for a return stay.

Peacefully nuzzled in a row of character cottages, Grade II listed Brambles offers deceptively spacious accommodation. There's an entrance/boot room for storing buckets and spades leading into a gorgeous sitting room, the hub of the home with squashy sofas, beams, a wood burner for extra snuggliness and social dining table. French doors open into the enclosed, attractive outdoor living space with patio and lawn for play and relaxation. Enjoy barbecues and sunshine breakfasts against the valley backdrop with distant sea vista. Back inside, separated by a small flight of stairs, the snug makes a cosy den with comfy seats for music and additional TV, and the galley kitchen has all the mod cons for cookery-pokery. The first floor is home to the quirkily appointed bathroom and three sunny bedrooms, all with lovely views of either the garden or the village and church.

The dramatic coastline at Boscastle with its picturesque harbour makes for a magical holiday setting for walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts. Peruse the galleries, unique shops and the famed Museum of Witchcraft, all within a short downhill stroll. There's a choice of eateries and inns too. Boscastle makes an ideal base for further exploration - there are beaches and attractions for all ages within easy reach. Ramble the coastal footpath; the walk from the harbour to Tintagel Castle is 5.5 miles, promising secluded sandy coves below and panoramic seascapes (look out for the grey seals) spanning to both headlands. Reward yourself with a cream tea by King Arthur's famous fort before discovering the cove at Tintagel Haven and legendary Merlin's Cave. Surf at Trebarwith Strand or visit Crackington Haven, a cove of rock pools and pebbles perfect for riding the waves, paddling and beachside picnics.

A perfect Cornish coastal village, the road through Boscastle runs down to the small harbour at the bottom of the hill. The quaint village shops, local restaurants and pubs offering good food, Cornish real ales and live entertainment by local musicians, make this an ever popular visitor destination. Spectacular cliff tops, rocky coves, wild surf, open fields and rich wildlife characterise this beautiful area. The coastal footpath passes through some of Britain’s most rugged and spectacular coastal scenery. The sandy beaches of Bossiney, Trebarwith Strand and Crackington Haven are all within 5 miles and the surfing beaches at Bude and Polzeath are within easy driving distance. Close at hand lie the delights of Tintagel, swathed in the legends of King Arthur, several stately homes and renowned gardens, or the wide open space of Bodmin Moor, famous for its granite tors and Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.
