Overview

About the property

3 bedroomed cottage with peaceful views

MOUNT PLEASANT is a recently renovated three bedroom Cornish Cottage, 5 minutes walk from the spectacular coast path in historic Boscastle. The cottage is on a quiet lane in the upper part of Boscastle village. It is a short walk either to the dramatic Cornish coastline or the characterful shops and pubs that Boscastle has to offer.

The cottage has traditional flagstone floors on the ground floor. A cosy lounge with a log burning stove (logs not supplied but available locally) and TV (free sat channels) plus DVD player. Also a kitchen/dining room with usual appliances plus dishwasher, combi washing machine/tumble dryer and microwave. There is a downstairs shower room with WC and basin. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one double, one twin and one single bedroom (which in fact has a pull-out double bed). Plus a bathroom with shower over bath, WC and basin. From the upstairs rooms there are good views of the hills surrounding the village.

Outside is an enclosed, south facing garden with seating and small lawn.

Parking is on the quiet lane outside the cottage, you can unload right by the gate but the road is a little wider further along which may be better to park.

A child's cot (bring your own cot bedding) and booster seat are available to use if needed.

Dogs are welcome downstairs only but not to be left alone in the property unless caged please.

Oil fired central heating + log burner.

Electric included in rental price.

Bed linen provided.

House towels provided. Please bring your own beach towels.

Phone provided (please pay for calls) and wifi.

COMMENTS FROM OUR FIRST VISITORS IN OCTOBER 2015

Thank you, we have had a great week. The cottage is lovely, very nicely furnished and very homely, with great facilities. We appreciated the small details like the milk in the fridge etc on arrival and maps etc.

We have had a lovely week and would stay here again without hesitation

Beautifully well kept cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for our stay at Mount Pleasant, in Boscastle. We were delighted to find such a homely and comfortable place. Every thought was taken on making the cottage a home away from home. It was spotlessly clean, even though it was a dog friendly accomodation. My family, including Giorgio, our chihuahua, had a lovely relaxing few days away. We had fun exploring the surrounding area including Perranport beach, Port Issac, Trebarwith Strand and, of course Tintagel and Boscastle. Such amazing scenery and lovely people. I hope for a repeat trip as there is far more to see.

Prima

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zu fünf Personen in dem Haus gewohnt und waren damit sehr zufrieden und haben uns über das Kaffee- und Tee-Willkommenspaket sehr gefreut.

Es gab ausreichend Platz in allen Räumen und das Haus ist in gutem Zustand. Bei Sonnenschein haben wir auch den Garten genossen.

Wir konnten die Küche gut nutzen, nachdem wir einige grundlegende Zutaten zum Kochen besorgt hatten. Schön wäre es sicher nicht nur für uns, wenn Dinge wie Salz, Mehl, Zucker, Öl und ein paar Gewürze von Vormietern sich noch in der Wohnung befänden und weiter genutzt werden können.

Leider tropfte eine Dusche und musste repariert werden, was aber ohne Probleme für uns erfolgte.

Das Haus entsprach unseren Erwartungen und wir haben eine schöne Woche dort verbracht.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this lovely message which I have just about managed to translate! I think you say that it would be nice to have some basic supplies (other than the tea, coffee, etc) such as flour and oil. Personally I have found that guests rarely use anything else that we may have provided in the past. The welcome drinks are generally used but nothing else so we limit to that. I'm glad you found everything to your liking at the house and hope you will be back some day.

Car: recommended

Boscastle is a bustling coastal village with a small medieval harbour. The village has 3 good pubs, as well as a number of shops, cafes and restaurants all within walking distance from Mount Pleasant. It is an excellent starting point for some superb walks, including the North Cornwall coast path and up the Vallency valley to Minster and St Juliot's church, of Thomas Hardy fame.

There are a number of local beaches within easy reach by car, including Trebarwith and Crackington Haven (both a 10 minute drive). Closer and accessible at low tide by steps from the coast path are tiny Bossiney and much larger The Strangles.

Tintagel, with its dramatic Arthurian castle, is only a 5 minute drive away. Further afield, larger resorts such as Polzeath, Rock and Bude are within easy reach by car. Inland, moody Bodmin Moor makes an excellent trip whatever the weather, whether to the famous Jamaica Inn or the excellent moorland walking to Brown Willy around St Breward (30 mins). Cornish highlights which are also easily accessible include Padstow (40 mins), The Eden Project (St Austell, 45 mins), Heligan Gardens (Mevagissey, 60 mins) and Lands End (75 mins).
