The Old Brewhouse, The Harbour, Boscastle, known locally as "The Pink House" , is built from the traditional local stone, dates from around the 16th century and has been converted to a cheerfully light, spacious, centrally heated cottage retaining its original external appearance.

The village and harbour have a very pleasant atmosphere of enjoyable outdoor spaces. Boscastle is a typical Cornish fishing village, and is considered to be one of Cornwall's most picturesque, with lots of quaint old cottages. Restaurants and pubs with good food are a few moments walk away for when you do not feel like catering for yourself whilst on holiday.
