    A traditional cottage in Boscastle.

    A traditional cosy cottage in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Mariners' Cottage is in a very quiet location only 200 yards from the heart of Boscastle and its spectacular harbour, which is surrounded by picturesque buildings, many owned by the National Trust.

    Mariners is set in a terrace of six cottages, originally built over 250 years ago to house the coastguards when Boscastle was a thriving port and fishing village. The whole terrace was devastated by the infamous flood of August 2004, after which Mariners Cottage was sympathetically restored using traditional skills and materials to ensure that the character of the cottage was preserved.

    Sleeps 3. Friday changeover day.

    This was our first time visiting Boscastle and what a lovely picturesque village it is. The cottage was a perfect size for myself my wife and our dog. We got married a couple days before so wanted something cosy and romantic to stay in. On arrival the cottage was tidy and clean which anyone would expect with a comfy bed and sofas. Even though it was warm while we were there we couldn’t resist using the fireplace with the wood kindly provided. The cottage is a stones throw from all the shops so was very pleased we could go for a nice meal and a drink and not have to march up the steep paths. We also had great signal and Wi-Fi with a box on the TV that allowed us to get Netflix so plenty to watch when we were relaxing in the evening. The hosts are really friendly and welcoming making sure we were all okay and settled. It was a perfect place to stay and made our little MiniMoon so much more enjoyable. We will definitely be recommending to family and friends and will definitely be back to celebrate our 1st anniversary. Thank you again for a perfect stay.

    Boscastle

    There is a visitors’ centre in the village where you can find out everything you need to know about Boscastle and the surrounding areas. You can visit the famous Witchcraft Museum. When the tide is in, you may be lucky enough to spot a seal in the harbour and the views out to sea from the cliff paths (which form part of the famous South West Coastal Path) high above the harbour, are breathtaking. There are many local walks, including along the Valency valley, which is very popular with dog walkers. The three local pubs - the Wellington and Cobweb in the heart of the village and the Napoleon at the top of the village - all welcome dogs (and of course, their owners!). They all serve good food. There are several other cafes in the village and the Riverside Restaurant is well worth a visit. Not forgetting Boscastle Farm Shop, just outside the village up the hill on the road to Crackington Haven, which sells amazing local produce and has an outstanding reputation for serving good food as well.
