A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is very well equipped, clean and also very comfortable. Everything was thought of.

The contact with the owners was very uncomplicated.

If we were to return to Cornwall, we would like to go back to the Melbourne Cottage.

Amazing - beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very homely and definitely has that cottage feel to it. The owners have thought of everything in terms of making your stay comfortable. There were fresh flowers, biscuits, tea, milk, soap, household products, etc left for us on arrival - very welcoming. The WiFi worked wonderfully (my 10 year old daughter was happy). The garden was great to sit out in plus barbecue. We would definitely go back - great location too.

Favourite Boscastle Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several cottages in Boscastle and this one is definitely our favourite. As we live in a hot climate, we particularly appreciated the instant heating on a cool, wet night and the updated shower in the morning. The cottage is very well maintained/equipped and is clean, cozy and comfortable. It is situated in an ideal location with an easy walk to the coastal path and local pubs and shops.
