An enchantingly romantic couples’ retreat located just minutes from both Boscastle and Tintagel, Aphrodite is a truly unique self-catering home overlooking the sea and wild north coast of Cornwall. Perfectly placed for ombre sunsets melting from heavens to horizon, this secluded coastal home will inspire writers, artists and dreamers alike.

Luxury self-catering Boscastle

Introduction

Bright, spacious and set over five beautifully appointed floors, Aphrodite enjoys spectacular views up and down the undulating cliffs of rugged North Cornwall. A tranquil haven where relaxation reigns, this luxury self-catering coastal cottage is delightfully eclectic in every way; upcycled furniture complements the quirky design, while Nordic-style white-washed floors run throughout its Cornish soul.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

With hands wrapped around a morning cup of tea, watch the sea from the comfort of the king-size master bed while the smell of croissants baking makes its way up the stairs. Down the spiral staircase to the lower ground floor, the deep bath tub hidden under a stone archway encourages lengthy nights soaking together in heady essential oils, while the monsoon shower wet room is the perfect place to rinse off from a day tramping the South West Coast Path.

Outside

With the coast path minutes from Aphrodite’s doorstep, throw on walking boots and explore North Cornwall’s spectacular surroundings. Trek through the ancient woodlands of St Nectan’s Glen just a few miles down the lane where ivy-clad trees hide Cornish piskies, or continue along the cliffs to descend the steep track through the Vale of Avalon to King Arthur’s castle and Merlin’s cave. Once home from a day’s adventuring, retreat to the gardens and summer house, located across the lane from the cottage, to enjoy sundowners and magnificent views of the Atlantic.

For Relaxation

Settle yourself around the crackling fireplace under the watchful eye of original Saul Cathcart artwork, glass of red in hand, and let Mother Nature's magic show take centre stage in the floor-length arched sitting room window. Prepare for majestic sunsets and dramatic storms until drifting off to sleep under the soft light of the feathered wings in this angelic abode.

Practicalities

There is private parking for one car and one other on the lane. The property is equipped with an electric cooker, microwave, dishwasher and combined washing machine and dryer.

Our Take

Marketing Manager Francesca says

I visited Aphrodite on a beautiful summer’s evening and was immediately taken by its unassuming grandeur. The golden sun poured in through the arched windows, filling the space with a celestial light which greets you with the warmest of welcomes, to this magical part of Cornwall.

Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Trevalga, Cornwall to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Boscastle Ramble two miles down the coastpath to Boscastle harbour. This charming village is sure to cast a spell over you; from the Witchcraft Museum to the quaint bookshop opposite, there is magic to be found in every corner. Beautiful Boscastle has also been used as a filming location for Doc Martin and Saving Grace, and has even starred in its very own BBC television series A Seaside Parish. In October, don't miss the Boscastle Food festival. Pick up a copy of the Parish paper The Boscastle Blowhole to get abreast of all the local goings-on!

Catch a Wave Whatever the weather and whatever your ability, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to hitting the surf. There are many secret surf spots nearby such as those at Millook and Trebarwith, or if you're more of a novice, head to Polzeath or Bude (both half an hour away) to find life-guarded beaches and friendly surf schools.

St Nectan's Glen This sacred site of AONB and SSSI is just around the corner and not to be missed. See how the River Trevillet has carved its way through slate and punched through the original basin to form a spectacular 60ft waterfall and natural pool. The locals even claim to have been pixies and fairies here - we'll leave that to your imagination!

Sea Fishing What better way to get a taste of Cornwall than catching your own supper!? A fishing day trip will provide you with the perfect opportunity to do just that. With all equipment provided, just bring yourselves; expect to catch anything from mackerel to cod, bream and pollock.

King Arthur’s Castle Descend the steep path from the village of Tintagel and explore the ruins of Tintagel Castle. Said to be the place where King Arthur was born, these clifftop ruins have Arthurian legend weaving through its foundations. Climb the 148 steps into the Great Hall, explore Merlin’s Cave when the tide is out or simply sit back and enjoy a cream tea with the sea sparkling ahead.

Nearest Beach 2 miles to Bossiney Haven, 4 miles to Trebarwith Strand, 14 miles to Polzeath.

FOOD AND DRINK

Home-Cooked

Create an indulgent feast in the cosy kitchen using the very best of local fodder. Boscastle farm shop (as well as serving great local food) is the perfect place to pick up some locally-grown produce. Candelabras and ancient pews chock-full with well-thumbed reads set the scene for romantic after-dark dining by candlelight.

In-House Cuisine

If you'd rather spend your luxury self-catering break indulging in the little luxuries, let an in-house chef prepare a mouth-watering meal for you and your party (on prior request and subject to an additional cost). 

Eating Out

For a coastal inn with character in abundance, don your walking boots and head down the road to the Riverside in Boscastle which serves fresh local lobster. Nearby Port Isaac, a small traditional fishing village, is home to Nathan Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, an absolute must for out-of-this-world seafood. For simple, rustic cuisine, real ales and fine wines head to the local inns at St Tudy or St Kew.
