This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

In terms of location alone, Harbour View is hard to beat. Standing at the head of the harbour, this fine old cottage looks down on the historic quayside in one direction and up to the village centre in the other. Nestling in the valley floor, it offers a sheltered and comfortable stay, and there are miles of beautiful walks available straight from the cottage door, whilst the small garden provides the opportunity to savour the sights and sounds of harbour life. Across the river you'll find our other holiday cottages The Gaffer, The Lugger and The Clinker.

Boscastle, one of the most beautiful and unspoilt villages in Cornwall. You can potter around the village with its quaint stone-built cottages, shops, art galleries, tearooms and pubs. Take a leisurely walk along the harbour or stride onto the coastal path and enjoy spectacular scenery.

At low tide there is a sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand just 5 miles to the South West or a little further on again, you you’ll find the famous surfing beach of Polzeath. In the opposite direction there is the popular Widemouth Bay near Bude.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Lovely cottage

    Boscastle is a beautiful place. The NT has made the harbour entrance a very attractive visitor location. The cottage was so lovely! Great location for walks and not too far down the Cornish peninsular.

    Best kept NT cottage we have stayed in!

    The cottage was spotless, lovely tea tray with chocolate Easter bunnies for the children and fresh flowers beautifully arranged. Anna was our housekeeper and she prepared the property faultlessly. Very thorough information folder. The best kept National Trust cottage that we have stayed at in a magical location.

    Perfect location

    Harbour View is in a perfect location, not just for places to eat and drink, but during the day to visit other towns and villages in the area. Lots of beaches close by and more important to us, very very dog friendly. Will definitely be booking this cottage again for next year.

    Excellent property

    The property location and condition were excellent. The cottage was very well maintained and cared for. We had an issue with flying ants wanting to stay with us too. We called the contact number and someone came out right away, PLUS they returned the day after to ensure everything was OK for us. Excellent care and attention thank you. Our only slight disappointment, and only because the rest of the property was immaculate, was the condition of the area around the back door which simply needed a brush. It would have helped too if the recycling bins were set back away from the door to enable clearer access.
