The cottage itself which is on a working dairy farm and attached to the owners, is very clean and tidy, spacious with three double bedrooms and well equipped with everything you need. We ate out one evening at the Wilsey Down Inn, just as you join the main road at Hallworthy, extremely handy, the food and service was very good and the welcome very friendly. It is popular. We were happy to relax, have a drink and wait for a table but in future or if you are short on time it is probably better to book. Heather the owner of the cottage is very welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. I love this area of Cornwall and it was my first time here albeit only for a long weekend. I should mention that the cottage is also dog friendly, as I have a Flatcoat who came with us. I would definitely stay here again.

The house is brilliant and plenty of space for a large party. The house is well equipped providing a very comfortable stay. Contact with the owners prior to our stay was good with recommendations on places to eat, Boscastle farm shop is not to be missed!! Boscastle and the surrounding area is stunning, we thoroughly enjoyed our long weekend stay. Would highly recommend!
