The cottage has retained many of its original features with beamed ceilings and deep window seats. It has a modern fitted kitchen and is furnished in sympathy with the age of the property - including some antique furniture. Storage heaters are in the main rooms and the lounge has a new multi fuel stove for extra comfort. The cottage is ideally situated for those who love walking and bird-watching as the rugged coastal footpath and the beautiful wooded Valency Valley are within easy reach. Between April and the end of October, Rosebank is booked from Saturday to Saturday. Short breaks of at least 3 nights are possible but need to be within a 'booking' week.

About Mrs Jennifer Campion
I live in Boscastle just a couple of miles from my holiday property so I am ideally placed to take care of it. I live in a very small house so the cottage is used by my family and friends as well as visitors.
Mrs Jennifer Campion purchased this Cottage in 1994
Why Mrs Jennifer Campion chose Boscastle
I have owned my cottage for nearly 20 years. I fell in love with it the moment that I saw it - even though it had ivy growing on the walls in the lounge! It has a very restful feel to it and this has been commented on by several visitors over the years. My family love to visit and my grandchildren are especially fond of the house. My first granddaughter christened the cottage 'the house with the bumpy walls' and that is what it is still!
What makes this Cottage unique
The house is ideally situated for exploring the area. A few hundred yards walk and you are on the ancient stitches and the nearby coastal footpath. Visitors in the winter can enjoy sitting by the fire and reading a book and the local pub is just a few minutes walk away! If you feel more energetic, then there is surfing nearby. The rugged North Cornish coast is spectacular and for those who want to explore the area there are many walks - perhaps to look at the beautiful and ancient churches that we have. Whatever you want from a holiday, you should find it in the cottage and surrounding area.

A chocolate-box treat
My friend and I spent 3 nights at Rosebank, hiking around the picturesque coastal path and driving to sights nearby. The cottage is an absolute delight for a romantic get away or a quiet weekend: teeming with character, original features and a fireplace that makes the whole place come alive during the long evenings.
Be prepared for some steep hill walks down to the harbour and navigating narrow streets and holloways in a car (but if you've come to Cornwall, you probably knew this already).
The cottage is easy to find and Jennifer was very kind to provide information about nearby places of interest and maps for walkers.
All in all, a great location, reasonably priced.
Thank you Anna for your very kind review. Cornwall in the autumn can be a delight with fine, sunny days and long evenings that can be spent in the local pub or around your own log burner. I do try to keep Rosebank as original as possible and of course the cottage is nicely situated for the coastal path and other amenities in the area.
The cottage offered us a home from home where everything was perfect
Thank you, Andrea. I am so pleased that you found everything that you needed at Rosebank - I do try to make guests feel very comfortable - and it is good to know that you and your family felt at home in the cottage.
a lovely old cottage
a lovely old cottage in a very quiet road with good parking on the property all the home comforts needed, the napolean pub just round the corner is very good for food and also the cobweb down in the harbour, would definitely recommend this cottage and would use again
It is always good to hear that visitors have enjoyed the experience of staying at Rosebank. The cottage is very old and has been modernised just a little in order to keep the atmosphere. Guests who understand that not everything works with the touch of a button - as in a modern house - have found it rewarding to relax there.
great little retreat
very nice quiet cosy cottage tucked away at the top of boscastle away from the bustle of the tourists down in the harbour
Thank you so much for taking the time to review Rosebank. I am very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and were able to relax in the cottage.
Cosy and Restful
A cosy, comfortable, traditional cottage with a lovely relaxing feel. Situated in a wonderfully quiet area of Boscastle, but still not far to walk to the local shops,pubs and harbour. Jenny is a great host.
We loved the Sails Cafe in Boscastle (great gluten-free food) and the Old Manor House for an evening meal. Didn't get chance to try the nearby Napolean.
We enjoyed great coastal walks - caught the bus from Boscastle to Tintagel and walked back. And spent a couple of great days (at low tide only) on the beautiful Trebarwith Strand.
If traditional charm, close to village facilities, is what you are after, then we definitely would recommend a stay at Rose Bank. Thank you Jenny.
Thank you for your very kind review of Rosebank. I am happy to hear that the cottage provided what you and your family needed for a great holiday. It makes the work worthwhile as that is what I hope to achieve for every family that stays there.
cosy and comfortable
lovely cosy cottage with loads of Cornish charm perfectly situated on the hill with views from the peaceful garden. The four of us myself ,partner and 2 children enjoyed our days our around Cornwall returning to our little home for the week with its cosy lounge and well equipped kitchen. A lovely walk down to Boscastle harbour and stagger up hill back but beautiful we didn't get to try the local pub at the end of the road as we were out and about we either ate in or had lunch out .we thoroughly enjoyed driving over the moors seeing the sheep and ponies and stopped once or twice well lets be honest it was three times at the jamaica inn. The owner Jenny was a delight to have contact with extremely helpful , we would love to visit again sometime and would definitely recommend a stay here.
