Highly recommend this property. With such terrible weather i.e. Storm Alex we were kept extremely cosy and warm and very comfortable. Very quiet location and didnt see anyone else, just perfect for these uncertain times were living in, making it a perfect choice for time away surrounded by stunning scenery.

Really amazing place, owners were kind and willing to help with anything! The location is amazing with a stunning view and some lovely coastal walks nearby. Tintagel, Bude and Boscastle all within short driving distance. And the cottage itself was cosy, homely and clean.

Lovely location, walking distance to costal walk. Quite surroundings even with campsite near by. Loved watching the swallows through window or sitting in garden. Strange time to be away, had to book anything to go to like Eden project, Tintagel castle online and lots fully booked so need to plan ahead if something you really want to do, we couldnt Read morego to Tintagel castle, booked up weeks in advance at moment. Pretty good phone signal but no WiFi Hide

Lovely peaceful cottage in a great location for visiting local places nearby, such as Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Issac. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the owners were very warm and welcoming. Definitely reccomend the place and will certainly be returning.

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!

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.

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.

A nice cottage located on a farm that was very quiet and the inside was nicely fitted out. It has everything that you need and was warm and cosy and very clean. Friendly owner that greeted us when we arrived and offered any help if we needed it. We didn't, as everything was there and and we were very happy with the accommodation.
