A real 'home from home' with everything you could need for a relaxing stay, so cosy and welcoming that it was a joy to return to each day. Beautifully appointed open -plan kitchen, delightful decor throughout and very comfortable beds. Would recommend it wholeheartedly.

The garden is vast and there is a HUGE table to sit at which has fantastic views over Boscastle. On arrival we found cake, milk and cider as well as fresh flowers in the kitchen and dining room, all were very welcome! There were lovely clean white fluffy towels and the shower is the best we have ever experienced. The owner was responsive to any queries and made sure that we were able to get in touch should we need to. Boscastle is a magical place with stunning scenery and is full of fantastic inland and coastal walks. Our boys enjoyed cycle training up the Boscastle hills as well as surfing and body boarding at Constantine Bay. The walk close to the cottage to the Stitches and beyond to the cliff tops to watch the sunset is a must! We visited Padstow for fish and chips at Rick Steins Fish & Chip shop - highly recommended! All in all a perfect place for a family holiday with our 13 and 14 year old boys where activities could be tailored according to the weather.
