Great cottage and location. Loved it!

Reviewed by Gareth, 10th November 2019

Nice clean barn conversion, no frills but good accomodation. Walking distance to the coastal path, but once you've done that and a short stretch along the coast you feel like you've accomplished quite a lot, but that might just be me!

Reviewed by Jane, 25th October 2019

Perfect cottage for a quiet escape. Cottage had everything you could need, set in beautiful countryside. Me, my hubby and our dog had a lovely week here and would definitely stay again. Boscastle a 5 min drive away or couple of mile walk along the coastal path with pubs and shops for any necessities.

Reviewed by David, 13th October 2019

The owners were very friendly, couldn't do enough for us. It was a pleasure to stay there. Would certainly stay there again.

A great venue. Really a great place to stay.

Reviewed by Pat, 21st June 2019

It was much further from the coastal path than we had thought which was disappointing and much too far for us to walk into Boscastle which we had wanted. It was very peaceful and quiet there but we would like to have been able to sit in a garden in the shade. On the whole it was a nice place to stay.
