Every morning we thoroughly enjoyed sitting in the conservatory looking at the view whilst having breakfast coffee and a slice of toast! Located right on the South West Coastal Path, we featured in those very same views with breath taking walks to both Boscastle and Tintagel. The former was our favourite for finding a bite to eat and experiencing local folk music at the "Welly". If you prefer to prepare your own food or heat something up from the great Boscastle Farm shop, you will find everything you need in the kitchen. A little further afield we visited places like Port Isaac, Rock, Padstow and numerous little coves and clifftop viewing spots. With Nick and Liz you have friendly, experienced hosts to make your stay comfortable, providing personal touches with a plate of cream scones and fresh fruit on arrival and suggestions and advice on the area. We'll be back!
