In the heart of Boscastle, an ancient terraced cottage about 500 yards up the steep hill from the harbour, café, shops and pubs. At the front, a one-way lane where parking is possible; at the back, a neat little paved garden (table/chairs) on two levels (4 steps).
Cornwall’s north coast: from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow and the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour.
The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bicycles for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle (King Arthur’s?) on a wild headland. St Juliot church was restored by Thomas Hardy and ‘a pair of blue eyes’ nearly fell down a Crackington cliff. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall’s prettiest villages.
Boscastle: famous village (pubs) where two rivers meet the sea in a natural harbour between steep moorland hillsides. Very lovely cliff and wooded-valley walks. Pretty low-tide sand beach at Bossiney, 2 miles, or bigger Trebarwith Strand (surfing), 5; Tintagel, 3. Pony-trekking locally.
