This quirky character cottage with beamed ceilings is situated only half a mile from the centre of Boscastle (note walk from village centre may be challenging for some!), an iconic Cornish fishing village located on the spectacular North coast. Many happy hours can be spent wandering around the shops looking for souvenirs and walking the coastal paths to the south and north of the tiny harbour. There are many places to eat and drink including The Cobweb, which boasts a family room, and the Wellington Hotel well known for its home cooking.  Closer to home - in fact just a few yards down the road from Minster Cottage - you will find the Napoleon Inn, a traditional 16th Century inn with open fires and serving real ale straight from the barrel and fresh home cooked meals using local produce. The cottage is an ideal base for exploring north Cornwall. Historic Tintagel and Trebarwith Strand are both within easy driving distance. Port Isaac - famous now for the location of the Doc Martin series - Polzeath and Bodmin Moor are easy goals for a day's outing.

Lovely comfortable cosy cottage with brilliant wood burner, would recommend.

Babs G,

The location of Minster cottage was great. Not so good for the less able bodied as it is very steep down to the harbour. The local pub was fabulous and very friendly. Look out for the Boscombe Boys singing group! If you want to eat at the pub 'The Napoleon' be sure to book. Boscastle is beautiful with some fabulous coastal walks, lovely local shops. We visited Port Isaac, took a bike ride on the camel trail at Padstow. We visited the waterfalls closeby. We enjoyed the beaches at Bude and New Polzeath.

Mr Charles S,


Boscastle's position, nestling in a secluded valley among stark cliffs, makes it a peaceful haven for visitors to explore at their leisure.  Whether your preference is to stop for a fortifying pub lunch or cream tea, or explore the craft and gift shops, potteries and art galleries, this enchanting village has plenty to offer everyone. Keen walkers can take a clifftop ramble with your canine companion, or take in the beautiful lush landscape of the verdant Valency Valley, one of the areas that inspired Thomas Hardy and many other authors, artists and poets with its beauty and tranquillity. Surrounded as it is by imposing cliffs, the sheltered harbour with its crystal clear water is a good place to try your hand at a spot of fishing.  Another attraction is the recently established Boscastle Food and Arts Festival, held every October for the last ten years, and of course an intriguing hour or two can be spent at the Museum of Witchcraft. Wandering around this picturesque location today, you would never guess how much damage was caused by the devastating flood of 2004.  It is an indication of how well Boscastle has bounced back from this catastrophe to once again become a thriving tourist destination you'll want to return to time after time.
