About Harriet Bradley

The Bradley family have been visiting Cornwall for many decades with their parents and grandparents. Jonathan bought Admiral Cottage (property ref 708602) over 20 years ago, then Tamarisk quite shortly afterwards. We love to spend time in Boscastle as do our extended families, children and grandchildren. We live in Bristol which is quite a short distance down to Boscastle, and we take advantage of staying at the cottages when there are breaks in the rentals. We never tire of the stunning surroundings, the cliffs, the coastline, the walking and visits to many places of interest in this magnificent part of the south-west. Once visited, many people love to come back to Boscastle and our cottages.

Harriet Bradley purchased this cottage in 1996

Why Harriet Bradley chose Boscastle

In 1996 Tamarisk Cottage was in need of complete renovation. It had been lived in for many decades by a local family. It seemed that no local buyer was interested in buying the cottage so Jonathan went ahead and restored it to its former glory, adding one or two modern features eg indoor bathroom with WC! It soon became apparent that the extra space was needed to house our extended family, so we use both cottages for those purposes.

Boscastle, the place, is a real village, not just a holiday centre and is completely unspoilt. The old parts of the village, like the old High Street where Tamarisk Cottage is located has been unchanged for many decades.

What makes this cottage unique

Tamarisk Cottage is very charming and cosy. In winter after a day out on the cliffs you can relax in front of the log fire, in summer nothing better than a cool glass of white wine up on the top terrace in the garden to watch the sun set over the cliffs and the village. A completely peaceful experience!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have enjoyed being part of the history of Tamarisk Cottage. It was interesting to research its former inhabitants in the Boscastle book and compare photos, then and now. Thanks for a relaxing time. The Napoleon's food was excellent for my birthday meal!

There are many pretty country and coastal walks within easy access of the cottage. The nearest surfing/family beach is at Trebarwith Strand just 12 minutes' drive away. Slightly further afield are Widemouth Bay towards Bude (to the north) and Polzeath Beach to the south. Boscastle offers a variety of dining/drinking possibilities - the Napoleon and the Bottreaux in the upper part of the village and the Wellington and Cobweb down in the harbour area. There are singsongs down at the Welly and occasional live music at the Nappy! Slightly further afield is dinner at Trevigue, an NT property, Crackington Haven and Trebarwith Strand. There are a number of NT properties within easy driving distance. The Eden Project and the lost gardens of Heligan are approximately 50 mins' drive away.
