  • "7th time at Cobble and we still love it."

    A lovely open fire with a glass of wine or three at the end of the day is bliss. We`ll be back again soon.

  • "We had an amazing and relaxing time and the cottage was perfect…can’t beat sitting in front of the fire on a cold January evening."

    Naturally given it was January not much was open in the village but that added to the charm as it was so quiet it slowed life right down, no easy thing with 3 boys aged 6 and under with us!

  • "Beautiful from the moment we walked in."

    Flowers on the kitchen counter, plenty of wood and kindling for first couple of nights. Bed very comfy. Just a really gorgeous cottage that we love staying at. So many happy memories, we can’t wait to come back!

  • "Have stayed there before, they have made changes to the kitchen for the better, but would prefer the large fridge to be located against the back wall rather than in the against the main wall."

    Would also benefit from some small steps as much of the top shelf is difficult to reach if not that tall. Will book again as love the place.

  • "Before our review of the property: The access to the property, as stated by Sykes, is a parking spot for another cottage; this spot is usually populated."

    If you have a small car, you "may" just get past to reach the cottage as guided by Sykes. If you can`t, you will have to drive down the road towards the National Trust shop then turn right (and it`s a bit of a nightmare reversing back down). This is our 3rd time at Cobble Cottage, and we have loved it. There have been a few changes since our last visit before the pandemic started; I think these are detrimental to the character of the cottage, but my partner thinks they are for the better. One change we both agree on is the garishly red fridge / freezer; it looks completely out of place. Cobble is a lovely cottage and we both thoroughly recommend it as a base to visit Boscastle and further. There is a lovely, and large, open fire for which we take a mixture of coal and wood; giving a lovely focal point while we relax with a nice glass of wine in the evenings.

  • "Great cottage and fifth time of staying."

    Will definitely come back. Lots of wear and tear issues such as stains on lounge ceiling where plumbing leaks from the bathroom have been an issue. Many lightbulbs not working and so forth but really appreciated the extras such as wine etc. We had a great week’s break.

  • "A charming old cottage right in the centre, lots of history and beautiful scenery."

    The property has been cleverly renovated and is well equipped. The carpets and rugs need more thorough cleaning and the settee and armchair is rather soiled and saggy. No doubt the owners will replace this for next year. We had a lovely week, enjoyed exploring the village shops and the many coast path walks. The car park was very close, convenient and reasonably priced. The location was great for visiting several other beautiful places.

    The cottage is very clean and has everything you need for a great holiday. The welcome pack of wine , biscuits and fresh milk was a really nice touch. I highly recommend this cottage for anyone wanting to explore the North West Cornwall coast . We had a fantastic family holiday with our two boys nine and 13 .

    Good communication throughout and House-keeper and Owner were brilliant to deal with too when we had a problem. Thoroughly recommend the cottage and location, it is actually better than the pictures show and outdoor seating area was a bonus and a favourite spot of ours!

    It is perfect for our family holiday in Boscastle. The cottage is cosy and welcoming and clean with everything that you need catered for. The location is right in the heart of Boscastle and ideal for exploring the village, coastal walks and North Cornwall. We have only got back yesterday and just booked in for our holiday in Cobble Cottage again next year.

    The cottage is bright and spacious with everything you would expect. The garden is a bonus and a real sun trap. The Boscastle farm shop is a couple of miles away (A lovely walk along cliff path) which serves great good and where you can pick up supplies

  • "We had a great week at Cobble Cottage and it was clean and comfortable."

    We had an issue with the washing machine which was sorted very quickly by the housekeeper. The TVs instructions were poor but sorted by a local expert most helpfully, again organised by the very pleasant housekeeper. It was lovely to have a bottle of local wine and milk when we arrived. The paperwork giving us information about visits etc was very useful.

  • "The high chair I ordered was not provided and the housekeeper was unable to supply one so we had to buy one."

    I think we should have been made aware that the cottage wasn't really suitable for families with young children. Having to pay an extra £100 for parking was a bit of a shock. The house could have been cleaner and supplies (ie. spare tea towels, dishcloths, toilet paper etc.) easier to find. Sykes are very unpersonal and obviously don't communicate with the housekeeper. The promised fresh linen for the second week was not provided. The location is wonderful and the cottage charming but I don't think we got value for money.

  • "The cottage and location were brilliant!"

    Few issues, carpets upstairs need updating very stained and dirty looking. Shower not powerful at all. It was clean but could have been cleaner. Towels were very hard and scratchy. Washing machine broke, oven didn’t work properly and toaster. Didn’t ruin our time there have fallen in love with Boscastle.

The property

This delightful cottage is idyllically located on a cobbled street in the heart of the picturesque fishing village of Boscastle, Cornwall.

An old fisherman's cottage, the property has been furnished and equipped to the highest standard offering all the modern day comforts to ensure the perfect holiday for families and friends alike.

The cottage is full of character which can be sensed the moment you enter the open plan living room with a fully-equipped kitchen, welcoming open fire and slate floors.

The comfortable sitting area offers a relaxing spot to enjoy the delights of your welcome pack provided by the owners which includes a bottle of the locally made, award-winning Camel Valley wine, perfect after a long journey.

There are three bedrooms here, two doubles and a single which along with the bathroom are all on the first floor.

Outside at the rear of the cottage, three small flights of reasonably steep steps lead to the relaxing patio overlooking the uneven rooftops of the crooked cottages below giving you a sense of time gone by.

The village itself is steeped in history, with its distinctive natural harbour known as one of Cornwall's most loved and romantic beauty spots.

From the cottage you are only moments from all this most popular village offers with a great collection of pubs, restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and local potteries.

Nearby too, and well worth a visit (but only for the brave!) is the Museum of Witchcraft.

The National Trust visitor centre will give you all the latest news of what is on in the surrounding area with lots of information about walks and places to visit.

One short walk well worth making for the amazing coastal views can be had by following the left hand path at the harbour; the famous blowhole can also be seen from here either side of low tide.

With being in an ideal location for touring this rugged coastal area of Cornwall, this lovely cottage offers a most comfortable base for great holidays throughout the year.

About the location

BOSCASTLE

Tintagel 4 miles; Camelford 6 miles.

A perfect Cornish coastal village, the road through Boscastle runs down to the small harbour at the bottom of the hill. The quaint village shops, local restaurants and pubs offering good food, Cornish real ales and live entertainment by local musicians, make this an ever popular visitor destination. Spectacular cliff tops, rocky coves, wild surf, open fields and rich wildlife characterise this beautiful area. The coastal footpath passes through some of Britain’s most rugged and spectacular coastal scenery. The sandy beaches of Bossiney, Trebarwith Strand and Crackington Haven are all within 5 miles and the surfing beaches at Bude and Polzeath are within easy driving distance. Close at hand lie the delights of Tintagel, swathed in the legends of King Arthur, several stately homes and renowned gardens, or the wide open space of Bodmin Moor, famous for its granite tors and Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn.
