Spacious House in Historic Boscastle, Walking Distance To Amenities And Harbour, Short Drive To Beaches

Tower House is a charming, converted Sunday School built in the 1800's which has been lovingly renovated. It offers spacious living and sleeping accommodation and is well suited to catering for large family groups to enjoy the stunning attractions of North Cornwall. Sited in a quaint Cornish street the house enjoys off road parking and a private, secure garden with picturesque stream (fenced off for safety). The house is full of period charm, such as slate flagstones and beams, and is equipped to a high standard. It is conveniently located a few minutes walk from the centre of historic Boscastle harbour and an abundance of cafes, restaurants, and amenities. Several beaches are a short drive. It is ideally based to explore close by areas of interest including Tintagel, Padstow and the Eden Project.

Boscastle and the surrounding area is simply stunning and offers loads for families, lovers of the outdoors and those just wanting to enjoy the stunning scenery and savour the award winning pasties and cream teas! Tower House is a unique property, with it's accommodating size, period charm and cosy feel and is a great place to relax and unwind for your holiday, as we have done on countless times.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note to say we had a fantastic time and the house is superb !

One comment we would make is that the photos don’t do it justice, although they look great it was even better, the lounge especially is huge compared to how it looks on the pics !

Thanks again

Huge house for large family!

  • 5 of 5

This house proved ideal for us as my mother in-law doesn't do stairs well these days and having a bedroom with en-suite on the ground floor proved to be indispensable. The kitchen/diner and lounge were truly huge as was our bedroom on the 1st floor. The other bedrooms were more than adequate in size and all the beds were reported as very comfy and everyone slept really well.

The kitchen was very well kitted out and the huge dining table was great for the whole family to sit around.

There is ample parking for 3 cars or even five if you don't mind blocking each other in and you have reasonably small vehicles.

As for the location well, this is nigh on perfect being a short stroll down the hill into the very centre of Boscastle and it's various amenities including a Spar and a very good bakery for lovely pasties!

All-in-all I would not hesitate to use the house again and it has my wholehearted recommendation.

Lastly, Christine was great to deal with and a lovely lady.

The house suited our needs very well, it was spacious and the layout worked well.

The children loved playing in the garden which was safe.

Just a few maintenance issues, with a leak in the downstairs shower room, various light bulbs needed replacing and no tea towels but otherwise everything was fine.

We loved Boscastle and the surrounding area.

We enjoyed meals in the local pubs the Cobweb and the Napolean which were both family friendly and the village bakery was good for bread and pasties!

We'll get onto it straight away and also take up with out caretakers about the lack of tea towels which should be provided. Sorry about that! Also, we'll get them to replace any light bulbs. Pleased to hear you still had a good holiday Kind regards Christine

Great house and fab location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house full of character, loads of space and well kitted out. Great location, only 100m from footpaths directly feeding into the coast path, and Spar shop, several pubs etc all within easy walking distance. Plenty of good beaches close by, though need to drive to these. We had a varying number of people staying between 8 and 11, worked well for all combinations but almost felt a bit empty when we dropped to 8 for the latter part of the week (perhaps that was just because the noisy ones had left!).

A great base to explore north Cornwall...

  • 5 of 5

We were two families of four. The property was fantastic for our needs. It is really spacious (this does not really come across in the photos on the website) so we weren´t tripping over one another and seemed private and quiet. The property is a short walk up from the old harbour along a charming lane.

Everything was clean and well maintained and it was good to have a forecourt next to the front door for parking. Mobile phone coverage was limited but there was a good broadband connection (this helps a lot I think to plan trips and check on the latest weather).

There are some good beaches nearby and it does not take that long to get to the Atlantic Highway (A39), making it a good base to explore places like Polzeath, Padstow and Port Isaac. Even the Eden Project did not seem that far away.

All in all, we had a great time.
