Proudly perched on a hill overlooking the unspoilt harbour village of Boscastle, this 200-year-old cottage with its characterful exposed beams and sash windows offers a romantic couples' retreat on the north Cornish coast

Situated in an elevated position above the village, a short walk downhill will take you into Boscastle. Explore the picturesque harbour or stop for a bite to eat in one of the cafes before venturing along the coast path to one of the many sandy beaches and sheltered coves that are dotted along this stretch of coastline. The popular fishing towns of Port Isaac and Padstow are within easy reach, both boasting independent shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries, while a little further afield, cultural sites such as King Arthur’s Castle, Llanhydrock House and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are waiting to be explored.

This lovely cottage offers cosy accommodation with plenty of traditional charm through exposed beams, sash windows and slanted ceilings. In the kitchen/diner you will find an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. After you have finished your meals, retire to the cosy lounge to warm up beside the electric fire while making full use of the TV/DVD. Upstairs, the king-size bedroom is cosy and inviting, with exposed beams, pretty windows on two sides and an extra pull-out bed, perfect for a young child. The bathroom is located downstairs and has a shower over bath with WC.

Step outside and you'll find a delightful enclosed patio area with a cafe style table and chairs and BBQ.

Well appointed cottage suitable for a couple, within easy reach of Tintagel. Clean, comfortable, cosy, and round the corner from a pub. Very friendly owner, for whom nothing is too much trouble. We will be back!

Have stayed twice for location, but won't be going back. It is dirty. The mattress has a huge dip in it. There were loads of air fresheners all over the house, which were overpowering I had to clean black gunge from around the taps and clean the kitchen, left over food on the worktops etc. The wine glasses left with the bottle of wine had to be wasRead morehed before we could even use them which sort of took away from the gesture really! And lots of flies. Shame as it is a lovely cottage, or could be. Hide

Seagull cottage is at the upper end of Boscastle, so be prepared for a walk uphill from the centre. It's a quaint old cottage with low ceilings, as advised in the advert. Quite nicely decorated, comfy bed, and books provided for reading. We had lovely weather, so didn't need to test the heating. Great as a starting point for walks and visits to locRead moreal towns and beaches. Hide

The cottage is at the top of a steep hill, on staying there I noticed there were many other cottages in the area closer to Boscastle itself and its facilities.

Nice owner that lives next door. Good places to walk the dogs and lots of dog friendly places to eat. The dogs liked to listen at the internal connecting door to the owners dogs. Low beams in the bedroom so mind your head. Comfortable lounge and nice kitchen. Very poor phone signal and wi-fi.

Warm welcome from the owner - not so warm welcome from the property. We visited during a cold rainy spell in June and could have done with more efficient heating ! This property is actually called Seagull Cottage and shares the parking space with Seagull Barn next door - parking is ok if arriving in a small vehicle !
