Relax and unwind in our homely bungalow situated in a private position within a tranquil hamlet close to the rugged north Cornish coastline and a few minutes? drive to the popular Elizabethan harbour village of Boscastle. Fully equipped, comfortably furnished and centrally heated, Anneth Lowen is ideally suited to year round holidays. There is easy private parking and a large enclosed garden with open countryside views.

Convenient for the A39 (Atlantic Highway), it is an ideal touring base from which to explore Cornwall?s many delightful coastal and inland attractions. Located in the hamlet are an inn and a chapel. The Horseshoe Inn serves home-cooked meals and is dog-friendly.

A Village shop and Post Office is within ten minutes walking distance. The local area has Outstanding Natural Beauty designation; much of it protected by the National Trust. Boscastle Harbour is the only natural harbour for 20 miles along the north Cornwall coast.

A century ago the village was a thriving port until the arrival of the railways. Explore the delights of the village, with its cottages clinging to the side of the Valency Valley, craft shops, gift shops and range of restaurants. Walk the cliffs or take the delightful path alongside the Valency river.

Just over a mile up the valley is St Juliot Church which was restored by the 19th Century novelist Thomas Hardy. Hardy met Emma Gifford, his future wife, here and the area features in his novel A Pair of Blue Eyes. Nearby are the quaint former fishing villages of Crackington Haven, Trebarwith, Bossiney, Widemouth Bay and Bude.

Many beautiful beaches are within easy reach, ranging from bays surrounded by towering cliffs to easily accessible sandy expanses. Prime surfing beaches at Polzeath, Newquay, Widemouth and Sandymouth. There are also many excellent coastal and inland walks nearby such as the open space at Bodmin Moor and the Southwest coast path.

Numerous other attractions and activities cater for all tastes such as sailing, boat trips, fishing, golfing, cycling, museums, industrial heritage, stately homes, preserved railways plus many family attractions such as Flambards village theme park and the Eden Project for that special day trip. An extensive range of shopping, social and leisure facilities can be found nearby in Bude, Camelford, Launceston or Wadebridge. Major locations such as Truro, Plymouth and St Austell are within a 40 mile radius.

Delicious local fish and chips are served from the mobile shop every Wednesday at 7:00pm Anneth Lowen offers 1 double bedroom with en-suite shower/WC, 2 single bedrooms, bathroom with shower over bath/WC, comfortable lounge/diner with HD TV, blu-ray player, kitchen/diner/utility, landline telephone, WiFi Internet access, large enclosed gardens with seating.
