Boscastle holiday cottages are hard to beat if you’re looking for a peaceful base from which to explore north Cornwall’s dramatic coast. This historic fishing village nestles in a deep valley, a stone’s throw from the crashing Atlantic waves, which fishing boats are sheltered from by a unique natural harbour. A short walk inland, the Medieval village centre is home to welcoming cafes and pubs, where a pint of local ale can be enjoyed in front of a roaring fire. There’s also a variety of independent shops and the renowned Museum of Witchcraft, featuring a selection of spooky artefacts. Self-catering holidays in Boscastle are unforgettable, thanks to the village’s legends, fishing heritage and striking historic landmarks. On a towering clifftop, you’ll find the Coast Watch Lookout, which was originally built as a folly in the 1800s and is still manned by volunteers. Don’t miss the Blowhole – also known as Devil’s Bellows – on the north side of the harbour, which blasts seawater skywards at low tide. The Old Forge, Lime Kiln and Pilchard Palace are all easily found in the heart of this Cornish fishing village.
