The Shippen in Boscastle, Cornwall - for a short midweek or long weekend break

Welcome to The Shippen and ideal choice for your next long weekend or midweek break.

A traditional character cottage with uninterrupted harbour views at the seaward end of an attractive row of three, set on rising ground overlooking the Valency river as it tumbles into the picturesque National Trust harbour about 400 yards away. The cottage is approached by a flight of railed rustic steps that lead up from the private parking area below to a small lawn which fronts the cottage and a stable door which opens first to an entrance porch with an inner glazed door leading to a slate flagged hallway. At the end of the hall there is an attractive stone floored, modern fitted kitchen with a large picture window to one side and a view over the harbour on the other. A step leads down from the hall into a beamed sitting/dining room which has a feature stone-built fireplace and a wide panoramic window which overlooks the garden and harbour below. A carpeted staircase leads up to the first floor landing and to one side, a bathroom W. C. with hand basin and shower over the corner bath. Also off the landing are two pretty cottage-style bedrooms, the master bedroom has a kingsize bed with a beamed ceiling and fine views of the harbour and the cliffs beyond, the other smaller beamed bedroom has a double bed and a little low window facing the river. Outside, a low walled garden has two small lawns, flower beds and a large terrace which has wooden garden furniture, perfect for al fresco dining but young children will require supervision. Boscastle harbour is a 2 minute walk as is the main village with its shops and famous 17th century Cobweb Inn. The area offers good cliff and country walking and the long sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand is about 4 miles away. Please note: Towels are not available.
