Wideacres is a cosy, single-storey holiday cottage adjoining the owners’ bungalow, benefiting from superb, wide reaching sea and countryside views. It is peacefully situated on a country lane abounding with wild flowers and provides a homely base from which to explore the area. It is located just a 5-minute drive away from Boscastle, which can also be reached on foot by taking the scenic path down the Vallency Valley. The spectacular coastal path and rolling countryside is on your doorstep, as is Highcliff, the highest cliff in Cornwall, and the surfing sandy beaches of the North Cornish Coast. Often used as a television or film location, Boscastle provides some of the most dramatic rugged coastline in Europe. Take a boat trip out around Puffin Island, or even try your hand at catching mackerel for your supper! In the village itself, you can browse the antique and gift shops, the craft centre, the Witch’s Museum, or eat out in one of the restaurants or three pubs. Much of the harbour, the coastline and the Valency Valley are managed by the National Trust, and are a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is perfectly positioned for walking along the South West Coast Path and visiting the picturesque villages of the area including Tintagel and its castle ruins. There are plenty of sandy surfing beaches nearby, where you can get surfing and kayaking tuition. Alternatively, try hiking across Bodmin Moor, cycling the Camel Trail, horse riding, golf, rock climbing or sailing. This is an ideal base from which to explore the whole of Cornwall, Dartmoor and North Devon. Attractions to visit include The Eden Project, Lanhydrock House, St Ives with the Tate Gallery, and numerous Cornish gardens. At any time of the year this is an ideal place for a holiday. In springtime you can enjoy the snowdrops, primroses, and bluebells in the woodlands and hedgerows, and in the summer, surf or laze on the beach and during the winter, marvel at the magnificent sight of the Atlantic waves breaking whilst enjoying an invigorating walk before a drink or meal in front of the log fire in one of the friendly local inns.
