About Miss Hilary Harper
Jim and I have been renting Hillcroft House as a Holiday Let for 9 years. Every year we have updated and improved the facilities based on our customers feedback and we are thrilled at the amount of people who return; an indication that we are doing a good job. Although we live in an adjacent flat on the site, we try not to intrude on your privacy, and once we have given the key and shown you round, we are only available should you come to the flat. We have a Newsagents shop which occupies a lot of our time away from the property, however we are contactable 24/7 should there be any problems. Jimmy was born and bred in the area, and is a fountain of Knowledge on the more secluded, remote beauty spots that are otherwise unseen by the normal holiday maker.
Miss Hilary Harper purchased this House in 2004
Why Miss Hilary Harper chose Boscastle
Hillcroft House is tucked away in a private cul de sac and enjoys a secure and private setting for the family. The surrounding cliffs, rugged harbour and tranquil Valency valley, provide a varied landscape to explore right on our doorstep; it truly is breath taking!! This large spacious property lends itself to entertaining, whether barbecuing by the swimming pool, relaxing with a drink in the Hot tub watching the stars, or enjoying a candlelight dinner in the dinning room. Christmas is a treat in this house, with the large lounge decorated with the Christmas tree, and the fire place festooned with fresh holly. This house was made for entertaining and has enjoyed many a family get together.
What makes this House unique
We love this house for its large, spacious rooms yet its secluded, private garden which is a real sun trap. We are not overlooked by the surrounding properties which is an advantage when relaxing in the hot tub or swimming in the pool.
The property is not suitable for children under 5
Minimum age of primary renter:21
Max guests:6 (sleeps up to 6 adults)
The house and pool house are Non Smoking areas including E cigarettes and other vaping devices. However, smoking is permitted in the garden only.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Lovely private gardens. Hot tub fabulous. Owner very nice and helpful.
Thank you for your review. Hopefully we will see you again in the not too distant future.
Best wishes to you both and so sorry your visit was cut short.
We had a fantastic week’s holiday at Hillcroft House. As soon as we walked in through the spacious hallway we felt very much at home, everywhere was spotlessly clean and so cosy. Our Daughter, partner and two sons arrived ahead of us and Hilary had already received our pre-ordered groceries delivered by Asda and had kindly put all fresh/frozen foods away in the large fridge/freezer. She explained about use of all the facilities, heated swimming pool and hot tub. We were surprised at how lovely the outside lawn space was, (perfect for two very energetic boys to play and run around) with a super seating area for outside eating, sun loungers by the pool and loungers/chairs on the lawned area. Everything we needed as a family was available. We enjoyed coastal walks, beach time, BBQ’s and delicious meals out. We would love to come back to Hillcroft House and would highly recommend this property to friends and family. Thank you Hilary x
Fabulous property, even in the rain!
Thank you to Hilary and family who had made sure the property was immaculate and so welcoming for our arrival.!
We had rotten weather during our stay but still enjoyed the property and facilities, managing to have 2 BBQs and a few goes in the hot tub and pool. The chickens even laid us an amazing double yolker egg for our breakfast one morning too!
I have no hesitation in recommending you spend your holiday here, its lovely!
Fantastic stay in Boscastle.
House is beautiful with excellent facilities. Will happily return
Thank you for your review. We were pleased that you had such good weather over the Easter weekend, ideal conditions for that coastal walk from Boscastle to Crackington Haven which you were planning.
There was a lot of live music in the various pubs around Boscastle, so it may not have been the Fishermen’s Friends, but hopefully you found the local talent as entertaining.
Thank you for leaving the place beautifully clean and tidy. It would be an absolute joy for us to have you all return to Hillcroft House.
Best regards to you all
Hilary and Jim
Relaxing week, in a special place!
We loved it! A clean house, spacious with everything handy ... a home.
Definitely we will come back!
Thank you for your lovely review. So glad you managed to see the Necturn waterfall and the Eden project during your stay. Hopefully next time you are down, the Tintagel suspension bridge to Tintagel Castle will have been completed. The plans show it to be spectacular.
Looking forward to seeing you all in the not too distant future!
Great house; great facilities.
We had a fab time at Hillcroft House. It is in a great setting, it is equipped with everything you might need and the hot tub is a real winner. We loved it and will recommend it to our friends.
Thank you for your review. I am so glad you all enjoyed yourselves and pure respect for venturing into the sea, even with wet suits!
Hopefully we will see you again in the not to distant future.
