Cosy, fully equipped, 3 bedroom cottage near Boscastle Harbour
Anneth Lowen roughly translates from Cornish as “happy home”, which describes this beautiful self-catering holiday cottage. The detached, single-story property is in a peaceful hamlet near Boscastle on the North Cornwall coast. It has been a holiday home for over 20 years. A welcoming home-away-from-home for couples, families and friends, it sleeps four people in three bedrooms, two bathrooms. The large, secure, enclosed garden overlooking fields is ideal for children, dogs and relaxing on the patio. Even a friendly pub, the Horseshoe Inn (as seen in Doc Martin), which serves homemade food or a takeaway, is a five-minute walk away.
The property sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty above the Valency Valley. It’s surrounded by lush, fertile fields and farmland that make locally produced food and drink so good. The village is rural yet barely three miles from the coast and spectacular beaches, including Bude, Crackington Haven, Widemouth Bay, Trebarwith and Polzeath. Strangles, Tregardock and Bossinney beaches never feel busy, even in summer.
The North Cornish coast is dramatically beautiful, with craggy cliffs and sandy beaches linked by the South West Coast Path. Admire the 223-metre sheer drop of High Cliff (standing well back from the edge if you’re at the top!) and the rocky shoreline leading to Boscastle Harbour, built when Elizabeth I was on the throne. Rocky Valley and Tintagel, with the incredible ruins of Tintagel Castle, are only a short drive from the cottage. If you prefer to explore by mountain bike, you’ll love having the wild trails of Bodmin Moor nearby. The traffic-free Camel Trail links Wadebridge and Padstow via an old railway line and is excellent for families. You’re only 15 miles from Port Isaac. With convenient access to the Atlantic Highway, it’s easy to reach other attractions like the Eden Project, Lanhydrock, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Guests who have stayed at Anneth Lowen love how comfortable it is with all the little touches that make it feel like a home. They also appreciate the quiet location and vast choice of beaches and attractions within a few miles. It’s easy to plan fun days out no matter what the weather.
