About the property

4 bedrooms, cliffside cottage, minutes walk to the village amenities - a rare gem!

Fabulously located on the fabled South West Coast path, Gull Cottage is a mere 500 yards from the heart of Boscastle and all its traditions and amenities. Whether it be a pint and a pasty or a Cornish cream tea, you'll only be two minutes from home!

Once you step through the front door you will find a stylish home, cosy for 2, but spacious enough for 8. The living and dining rooms have stunning views across the harbour with the added feature of welcoming wood-burning stoves – the perfect place to spend cosy autumn and winter evenings.

The cottage is equipped with everything you'd expect for a comfortable holiday. Dishwasher, washing machine, internet, TV, seating for 8

Externally there is parking for 2 cars and a private terrace directly above the harbour from which you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the activities below – you may even catch sight of one of the seals which regularly visit the village.

About Carolyn Harris

Growing up in the 70's - camping in Polzeath & sitting on the harbour walls of Padstow I always wanted a place of my own in Cornwall. Thankfully my husband did too! When we discovered Gull Cottage was for sale 6 years ago we jumped at the chance! The start of beautiful renovations had already been made and it featured in Period Living as the old range was discovered in the kitchen!

We are ex-pats now, living all over the world so Cornwall is our little piece of home.

We are delighted to now own both Gull Cottage and it's bigger next door neighbour Old Anchor & hope you enjoy them as much as we do while we are away!

Must of our guests are repeat customers - we hope you will discover the treasure that is Boscastle soon!

Carolyn Harris purchased this cottage in 2008

Superb location for walkers - just step out of the front door onto the Coast Path!


Numerous local beaches excellent for swimming and surfing are a short drive away. These include Crackington Haven, Widemouth Bay and the Bude beaches to the North; Daymer Bay and Polzeath to the South.


Just 5 miles from Camleford and Tintagel, ideally located on the North Cornish coast between midway between Bude and Polzeath, just 15 miles in either direction.
