Cottage in Boscastle, Cornwall, England - Only A Short Walk From Boscastle Harbour And Village Centre, Perfectly Placed For Cliff Top Walks
Frogapits is a traditional stone-built Cornish cottage that has a charm all of its own. Set in a beautiful garden with a stream running through it, it's a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the perfect Cornish holiday. There are plenty of activities to be had during the day - cliff-top walks straight from the front door, beaches and surf spots within easy driving distance. In the evening, relax with a barbecue by the stream in the garden, or walk to one of Boscastle's three characterful pubs (the nearest of which is only 50 yards away). In the winter, the cottage comes into its own with a wood burning stove in the sitting room and a smokeless fuel stove in the kitchen - get both going at once and it couldn't be cosier. We really believe that you'd be hard pushed to find a house with so much going for it - as a family we've been staying here for decades and hope to do so for many more.

Why Duncan and Rob Soar chose Forrabury and Minster
We've always loved coming to Frogapits for its unique charm and its wonderful location. Whether you're having a summer barbecue or picnic by the stream in the garden, or battening down the hatches, lighting the fires and keeping out the Cornish weather in the winter, the cottage is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing break. The rugged north Cornish cliffs are only a short walk away, there are beaches to drive to in the summer, some wonderful village pubs to spend the evening, great Cornish pasties to be had from the village baker's, and so many other things to enjoy about your stay here.

Beautiful cottage and setting...our favourite Cornwall cottage!
This is our third visit to Frogapits, one being our honeymoon, so I think that says it all! The setting of the cottage is simply beautiful, with the stream running through the garden. The cottage itself is full of character, comfy and homely. We instantly relax when we arrive here. It has everything you need, complete with a wood burning stove in the sitting room and one in the kitchen. It is so close to the village centre and harbour but you would never know it! Walking to the coast path takes a few minutes and Boscastle is just beautiful. We already have another holiday booked here with more to follow. This is a beautiful place to stay and the owners are lovely! Thank you for another fantastic stay!
Had a great time in Cornwall and froggapits cottage is lovely.
Lovely cottage in perfect location
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to stay in Boscastle
So loved the cottage. Full of warmth and care. Close to the harbour and all amenities. Such a wonderful relaxing weekend in a beautiful location. Sounds of the trickling stream put the final delightful icing on the cake!
Truely the greatest place we have ever stayed in.
We spent Christmas and new year at frogapits, this was a surprise for my partner, she was elated when we arrived, and when we opened the large oak door and explored it got a lot better.
The rooms are fantastic, built properly, with thick walls and recessed Windows, no pvc rubbish, slate floors and two fantastic wood burners, set in inglnook fire places.
It was cold and damp, outside as it is at this time of year, but once the fires were lit, it transformed the place into a very warm, cosy, beautiful place, everything was provided by the owners, who even set up a Christmas tree for our arrival, prosseco and a welcome card, so thoughtful.
Outside the garden is wonderful and a stream tumbles through, which sounds great to fall asleep to.
To sum it up, I had allready booked a different cottage in boscastle for May, my partner has asked me to cancel the booking as she said, after frogapits, it would'nt be good enough !!!
Thanks for such a lovely review Mark, its always great to hear of guests enjoying Frogapits as much as we do ourselves!
Looking forward to welcoming you both back to the cottage just as soon as we can.
Booked a weekend here and loved every moment, the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating, milk and Cornish biscuits on arrival, fires were ready made just waiting to be lit, the cottage is wonderful, really warm, great hot water, a very comfortable bed, I cannot recommend any more than say I will definitely be booking again and can’t wait for a return visit
