A great base for the Northern Coast of Cornwall

4 of 5
The property is a lovely little lodge, within its own walls which afford privacy from the main house. The kitchen is the best equipped we have found and the welcome pack was very generous, with the cream tea very welcome after our journey! The downstairs accommodation is excellent, well equipped and very comfortable. The only negative comment I would make is that the bedroom ceilings, being built in the eaves, mean that you have to be careful to not bang your head. Bob and Nic were very welcoming and available to answer any questions.

Cosy, stylish and memorable

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Briar Cottage in Boscastle. The Saffron cake, Cornish cider, milk and shortbread biscuits were a very lovely surprise when we arrived after our long drive. The cottage is beautiful and we felt very much at home. We had a lot of fun keeping the fire going, enjoying cosy evenings in after windswept seaside walks during the day. The perfect place for lots of scenic excursions. Thank you very much again for letting us share in your patch of paradise and for being so helpful with instructions beforehand.

A lovely comfy, cosy place to stay

5 of 5
We had a lovely long weekend stay mid march, the property is fantastically equipped, comfy and very cosy. Within short walking distance of the Mill House Inn and a little further to the Port William in Trebarwith - both with fantastic food. Nice and close to the coastpath for walks - we walked to Boscastle and Port Isaac from the cottage. Julie and Clive were great hosts, we will be back again soon!
