    Lovely cottage. Very well kept and comfortable. Great location for exploring and walking. Nice pub food in the Cobweb Inn in Boscastle. Take the coastal path back to cottage, at the end of the harbour, as its scenic and less strenuous than walking out by the main road. Had a brilliant week and would come back again.

    This is a beautiful property in a beautiful part of the country. Boscastle is lovely, recommend the singing of the Boscastle Buoys at The Napoleon pub and the cream teas at the Bridge cafe. It's ideal for visiting Port Isaac.

    Lovely cottage just on the edge of Boscastle village. Owner very helpful. Rang to let us know when it was free for us to go in. Lovely scones, clotted cream and other essentials were waiting for us when we arrived!

    We had a fantastic 6 day break staying at the cottage. It is a lovely, cosy and homely place to stay which was perfect as a base to travel around Cornwall.

    Well presented , warm and comfortable accommodation in a thoughtfully renovated coast guards cottage. The kitchen had everything you need to prepare and cook meals. Plenty of storage space for baggage and clothing. The modern walk in double shower was wonderful. The hosts provided the best homemade welcome pack we have experienced in 20 years of holidays in Cornwall. They were both welcoming and gave recommendations re entertainment and eating out.Easy travelling distance to Padstow and rest of North Cornwall and in beautiful location. I would suggest a washing line or rotary in the garden would be a useful addition. Would thoroughly recommend.
