Jim and I have been renting Hillcroft House as a Holiday Let for 8 years. Every year we have updated and improved the facilities based on our customers feedback and we are thrilled at the amount of people who return; an indication that we are doing a good job.
Although we live in an adjacent flat on the site, we try not to intrude on your privacy, and once we have given the key and shown you round, we are only available should you come to the flat.
We have a Newsagents shop which occupies a lot of our time away from the property, however we are contactable 24/7 should there be any problems.
Jimmy was born and bred in the area, and is a fountain of Knowledge on the more secluded, remote beauty spots that are otherwise unseen by the normal holiday maker.
Miss Hilary Harper purchased this house in 2004
Hillcroft House is tucked away in a private cul de sac and enjoys a secure and private setting for the family.
The surrounding cliffs, rugged harbour and tranquil Valency valley, provide a varied landscape to explore right on our doorstep; it truly is breath taking!!
This large spacious property lends itself to entertaining, whether barbecuing by the swimming pool, relaxing with a drink in the Hot tub watching the stars, or enjoying a candlelight dinner in the dinning room.
Christmas is a treat in this house, with the large lounge decorated with the Christmas tree, and the fire place festooned with fresh holly.
This house was made for entertaining and has enjoyed many a family get together.
We love this house for its large, spacious rooms yet its secluded,
private garden which is a real sun trap. We are not overlooked by the surrounding properties which is an advantage when relaxing in the hot tub or swimming in the pool.
What a fantastic week we had at your lovely house. You were such welcoming, friendly hosts and made the house so lovely for our stay. We loved the house, there was so much space for us especially when cooking and all sitting around in the lounge together at night playing card games. The Hot tub is a great addition, I only wished it was May so we could have used the pool too.
The holiday was Fab; we will always remember it and will be recommending you to all our friends.
Our family stay here last summer with our children was just fantastic - A lovely cosy property with a truly fantastic location and setting - beautiful and peaceful and yet just a short walk into the heart of beautiful Boscastle with so much for the kids to do and explore - really the best of both worlds.
The accomodation was incredibly spacious and very well maintained throughout. The living and dining rooms were exceptionally cosy and the kitchen was amazing - really well equipped and even better than our own at home! The bedrooms were comfortable and well proportioned and the kids absolutely loved the enclosed garden and private swimming pool. We sat outside most evenings enjoying the barbeque and the evening sun whilst the kids played - really a great family escape!
Without a doubt one of the best holidays we've been on - a truly idyllic stay that all of us have not stopped talking about. We will definitely be going back!
This is an exceptional house, with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We came to stay on Boxing day and were delighted with the extra efforts made to make the house so special. It was really enchanting. Wonderful sofas, beds, linens, a kitchen better stocked than ours at home, the fantastic hot tub...the attention to detail was superb. I was concerned a little about the owners living on site, as much not wanting to disturb others as anything else, but it was just fine. Hilary and Jim are around if you need anything, we didn't as it the house has everything, but they are totally respectful of privacy. I would definitely recommend.
Lovely spacious house, on a good location to explore Cornwall. The hot outdoor spa was a really nice bonus. Well equipped house. We had a lovely time with our 3 childern. The hosts are very accomodating and friendly.
Greeted by Hilary and Jim both very helpful and very friendly perfect hosts. showed us around their beautiful home the picture's don't do the house,rooms or garden justice. very spacious rooms. very comfy beds. everything you would need is provided literally everything (except a few basics). what can I say about the garden as soon as my kids and my friends son (4 and 8 and 12yrs old) got up in the morning they wanted to be in the pool and hot tub. when we arrived we had literally just got in the door and my kids were stripping of to go for a swim and we had only just introduced our selves to Hilary and Jim. back to garden, the pool is heated to around 30'c and hot tub is amazing after a swim, very clean and maintain every day. my youngest loved the chickens became a routine in the morning and afternoon to collect the eggs. Weather was perfect and made a fantastic week. Slight noise from above the living room as Hilary and Jim live upstairs but not noticeable at all really until you sit to watch tv or play games in the living room, but they do keep as quiet as possible didn't effect anything for us. we properly made more noise lol. Thanks again Hilary and Jim for a great holiday it was truly a brilliant holiday for every member of the party and one we will never forget and we have already started talking about coming to cornwall next year. Huge thanks Emma and co
Lovely house at the top of Boscastle.
Hilary & Jim are welcoming hosts. There when you need them, giving privacy when you want it.
The poor weather didn't prevent getting enjoyment from the lovely pool & hot tub.
The Napoleon Inn is 50 yards away and serves great food and fine ales.
A 10 minute walk to the harbour area brings you to nice shops, cafes & pubs.
Cobweb Inn serves good food & ales.
Short drives to Bude, Padstow & Tintagel break the week up.
Fowey is a little further away on the south coast, but well worth the effort.
Absolutely recommend Hillcroft House for a great location for your vacation
Stayed previously with friends, but this time enjoyed a fantastic week here with family, and couldn't have asked for better weather too for the week!
For the rest of the family (from 50 down to 15!) - they all we awestruck by the house when they got there despite the pictures - and it was very clean and comfortable with everything we needed and so spacious too (even if there was 8 of us!). Everyone also loved the pool which was so warm and such a welcome relief after some hot days, as well as the hot tub - and brilliant to see some new bits such as a new garden 'summerhouse' (which went down well with some quiet drinks and admiring the quiet after the sun had gone down!), and also updates to the bathroom too.
Hilary and Jim are fantastic owners, and have always made us feel very welcome at Hilcroft - nothing is too much trouble if you do need a bit of help or advice on where to go, such as local tourist attractions or finding a quieter beach to enjoy.
Seriously cannot recommend this place enough to anyone thinking about a stay and would rate it more than 5 stars if I could, it truly is a beautiful house, a beautiful location in Boscastle (which as a city dweller is eerily quiet at night but so nice!), and with the rest of Cornwall and so many beaches on your doorstep, we never ran out of anything to do and will fill plenty more trips to come I'm sure!
Really can not wait to be back again in the near future, and thank you so much once again to Hilary & Jim for another brilliant stay.
