Holiday cottages in Boscastle

Many will associate Boscastle with the flash flood that overwhelmed the tiny fishing village back in 2004. But over a decade on, this beautiful, remote hamlet has been returned to its former glory.

Situated on the enchanted North Cornwall coast, traditional stone cottages cling to the banks of the River Valency as it winds its way towards Boscastle’s historic harbour, safeguarded by the National Trust, and still welcoming fishing boats today.

This dramatic, breath-taking hamlet is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle, to swap the ring of your phone with the din of Atlantic waves.
