Fisherman's grade 2 listed cottage in Port Isaac

Property type cottage

About the property

Boskensa is a delightful former fisherman's cottage situated in an elevated position on Back Hill within a couple of minutes walk to Port Isaac's busy working fishing harbour, restaurants, pub and galleries. Offering plenty of character and charm to include the original Cornish range in the snug sitting room, sash windows and slate flag floors on the ground floor and a glimpse of the sea from the first floor. This property is an ideal retreat for a family with two small children but better still for a romantic getaway for couples.

Cosy Cottage in the Heart of the Village

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I had a lovely time in the cottage.

A perfect position for exploring the village and walking to Port Gaverne.

The decor was light and cosy. We could even hear the sea from our bed in the evenings.

Would love to stay again!

Cottage only 3 mins walk to shops , pubs and beach of lovely Port Isaac Great location

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at Boskensa but not really ideal for my husband who has an old leg injury, the stairs are steep and narrow. Also lack of parking was bit of an issue for him although the carpark is convenient and only at the top of the hill and for anyone able bodied not a problem (£35pw) However you are not guaranteed a parkplace and as Port Isaac gets a lot of day sightseers it's fills very quickly and if you come back from a day out before 6pm may find you've to use the extra overflow carpark which is quite a bit further afield Lovely bright bedroom with partial view of sea over the rooftops . No outdoor seating area . Well equipped spacious kitchen but very tiny living space which if a family of 4 would be too small but ok for a couple. Same to be said for bathroom which has a shower and a tiny bath The cottage is traditional and quirky so it's compact but has lots of charm and character and I'd recommend for an able bodied couple or young couple with a child , although the 2nd bedroom does have bunk beds for 2 children. Oh and it's dogfriendly Overall we enjoyed our stay here at Boskensa and loved Port Isaac : ))
