A Countryside Retreat: Boscastle Cornwall, UK

With all the hustle and bustle of Christmas Eve a day away I wanted to share a House Tour today that may bring some calm to your day, a romantic cottage retreat in the countryside of Cornwall, UK. The most beautiful countryside within the British Isles with one of the few remaining unspoiled harbor villages in Cornwall is Boscastle. Designated an Area of Outstanding Beauty, a National Trust owns and cares for the beautiful medieval harbor and surrounding coastline.

An excellent base for touring the area, all of Cornwall or North Devon, including moorlands, sheltered wooden valleys and coastal footpaths offering magnificent views, are all on the doorstep of this cottage. Let’s begin the tour and the relaxation with the picturesque views of the countryside from your lounge chair or hammock.

This sweet cottage combines rustic charm with cottage design details to create an inviting retreat in the countryside.

A sleek, modern kitchen with exposed beams and a country cupboard create functional, eclectic charm. The painted wood floors bring a lightness to the space in relationship to the unfinished beams.  I love the modern lighting and simple windows that resemble picture frames around these breath taking views.

The master suite is cozy and romantic with a walk out to the garden, all it needs now is a luxury wooden bed. Below, the use of natural slate and glass finish the bathroom perfectly.

I hope you have enjoyed this lovely cottage House Tour today and someday will have the opportunity to see the village of Boscastle. Visit the other fabulous properties found on Unique Home Stays were I discovered this hidden treasure. For today, try to take some time to enjoy the things you love most about Christmas and the Holidays!
