The property

Adorably rustic with a fusion of country charm and coastal character, this delightful cottage in Boscastle sits a short walk from the beautifully dramatic north Cornish coastline. This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a paradise for walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts with scenic coastal footpaths and woodland valley trails. Tintagel, five miles away, hosts the legendary King Arthur's Castle and there are stunning beaches and little fishing coves dotted around the shoreline. Port Isaac is picture-perfect and the colourful seaside resort of Bude is just 14 miles away.

From Fairfield Cottage amble 15 minutes downhill to Boscastle's picturesque harbour discovering the museum, pottery shop, galleries, pubs and eateries on the way to the headland. Crackington Haven is just a few miles away, with a cove of pebbles and rock pools - an almost hidden gem ideal for picnics, paddles or riding the surf.

Sitting at the head of an attractive terrace, Fairfield Cottage is brimming with characterful features including exposed stone walls, wooden beams and traditional slate floors. The cute sitting room makes a cosy nook of comfy sofas with a wood burner to snuggle up to. The kitchen/dining room is welcoming with a big rustic table to gather around for that impossible-to-resist cream tea. The country-chic bedrooms are charming, offering flexible, restful havens after the day's adventures. The pretty rear garden is reached up eight steps (please supervise children as there is a drop) to a patio sunspot and lawn with country views and a very distant sea vista - perfect for an alfresco bite to eat or bottle of fizz.

About the location

BOSCASTLE

Tintagel 4 miles; Camelford 6 miles.

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.
