P111 - Fuchsia Cottage
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
In Boscastle, at the top of the village, 100 yards from a pub, a dear little, 18th cent., neat-as-a-pin semi-detached cottage with long views over the village to the sea from its shrub-filled enclosed garden. From lane, 4 steps up to porch (room for boots/coats); door (5'7” lintel) into open-plan living/dining/kitchen (washing machine, microwave) with inglenook (open fire), old cloam bread oven, TV/DVD, 6'6” beams and back door to garden. Stairs up to two bedrooms – a double with long views of the coast and glimpse of sea, and a twin (2'6” beds); bathroom (suite plus bath-shower) with another good view. A smashing cottage.

The West Country region
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 - makes a change from sea: so does lovely Lanhydrock (see Cornwall's 'Med'). Not far to Eden (see South Cornwall).
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.

Tolle Aussicht, schöner Garten, komfortables Cottage. Schöner Ort, klein und nett, nicht zu touristisch, aber auch steile Straßen, die Kondition erfordern, wenn man nicht nur Auto fahren will.… More
