    Fantastic cottage. We would strongly recommend it!

    The Old Coastguards Cottage in Boscastle was beautifully presented and very warm and comfy. You can walk to Boscastle down the cliff path which has spectacular views! Highly recommend this place.



    out of 10

    Cottage was great, views marvellous, weather was to be expected in November. Loved the wood burner and a netflix TV was nice for the long windy nights. WiFi was good. Couple of comments, no shaving plug in bathroom (which was down stairs), no drainer on the draining board and just one tea towel, minor but irritating. Overall excellent holiday cottage in a wonderful location.

    A brilliant family holiday in a lovely house, within walking distance of a great pub and wonderful walks.
