A fabulous cosy cottage
First impressions were that the cottage was immaculate and that proved to be the case. Everything we needed was there, including lovely toiletries and a sumptuous welcome pack, crisp clean bedding and white fluffy towels. The views are stunning, whatever the season, and it is a perfect base from which to explore.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Little Pol. We love hearing back from our guests so that we can understand what they like about the cottage and the local area.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
Superb quality accommodation, very good standard,well equipped & very well thought out. Fabulous
We had a great stay with our two Parson Russell Terriers. We were welcomed to fresh bread, milk, butter and cream tea which was great and appreciated. The property is fabulous, so clean and well equipped. Liz and Steve seem to have really thought out what is needed when away from home. The communication before,during and after was very good. The Napoleon inn down the road is a great old pub, very good food and very friendly knowledgeable staff. Little Pol is well situated for visiting many of the attractions, we did Newquay, Fowey,Mevagissey, Port Isaac, Padstow, Tintagel etc all within easy reach.We will definitely visit again. Thank you so much.
Thank you very much for taking the time to write this review and we are delighted to hear that you both and the dogs enjoyed your stay in Little Pol.
It is always nice to hear what our guests like and and are really happy when we receive reviews like yours.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

Peaceful and comfortable
Heard some clients had said it needed a log burner, it doesn't need it , very warm and cosy.
Thank you for giving us 5 stars. We do work hard to ensure Little Pol is as comfortable as can be for our guests and are delighted to hear you say Little Pol is warm and cosy. However, we are in the process of seeing if a log burner can be installed!
What a little gem Little Pol is...
My husband and I stayed here after our renewal of wedding vows ceremony on the saturday. What a perfect little getaway this is in beautiful Boscastle. A real home from home with a romantic edge. We walked into a quaint cottage with welcoming goodies left for us. The following morning a bottle of bubbly and a congratulations card was delivered to us from the proprietors, a beautiful kind gesture and both of us thank you so much for this gift. We were sad to leave today to join back in the rat-race but have vowed that we will definitely visit again very soon. Thank you once again. Xx
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Pol in Boscastle Cornwall .The cottage was delightful and the perfect base for exploring Cornwall. The welcome pack was a lovely touch and everywhere was so dog friendly it was brilliant and we would stay again for sure. An absolutely brilliant holiday.
Comfy and relaxing stay
Little Poll is a gem of a house and is so well equipped for a comfy and relaxing stay. We loved the huge bed and the well appointed kitchen and living room. The "welcome" goodies were such a nice surprise and delicious too! That bread is so good and lasted all week. The cottage is in a really great location for exploring the north of Cornwall and we travelled widely- there is simply so much to see. We would highly recommend this property

The fabulous South West Coast Path is within easy reach and if you do not wish to use your car buses go to and from Boscastle.
The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within driving distance. Tingatel Castle is approximately 5 miles away by car. Padstow with its glorious harbour and many eateries is close by either using the car park at Rock and then the passenger ferry, alternatively you can travel to Padstow by car. Camel Valley Vineyard is another interesting stop for a tour, or you can of course just sample a glass of wine or two!
A few Things to do apart from visiting the beautiful beaches.
