Many of our visitors enjoyed a lovely coffee & bit of home made cake at the Spinning Wheel cafe when John & Francilla owned it a couple of years ago. (You may remember them dangling from a rope underneath a helicopter during the flood in 2004) We have been asked on numerous occasions what has happened to them so I thought I'd let you know here. They are still in the village & Francilla has just taken over a lingerie store in Launceston called Sofia's Lingerie. They have moved to the Pillar House in Old Road & have recently converted the top part into a self catering holiday home. If anyone is coming to Boscastle & is interested in renting The Pillar House I'll attach some pics & details about the property:
Pillar House is a Grade II Listed, Georgian house set in the quiet, village street above the picturesque harbour of Boscastle. It is stylish, light and airy and combines period features with modern facilities. It has a roof terrace with views of the wooded Jordan Valley. The house is cosy enough for two people but spacious enough for five.
The accommodation consists of a well-fitted, modern kitchen, a comfortable lounge and a roof terrace on the lower floor and three bedrooms (2 double; 1 single), all with iron bedsteads, and a bathroom, with a bath and modern shower, upstairs. Non-smoking. No pets.
