Got a swimming pool and jucuzzi secluded garden this is a must. House immaculate owners Hilary and Jim very nice people and very helpful. Don,t let the thought of the owners stay in the flat above put you off as they absolutely give you your privacy but would be there if you had any problems. Everything in the house you could think of Hilary has got organised for you. Boscastle itself a lovely place and is within easy distance to use as a base to visit places,plenty of things to do for all types of ages and interests. I would not hesitate to return to this property and will in the future. Thankyou Hilary and Jim for a wonderful memorable stay. Shirley adams and gang

It's very pretty, spotless and there's nothing you need that isn't provided. Bed linen especially is lovely. Perfectly situated in stunning location. Will definitely be returning
