    It was very homely and an excellent location. It was a lovely touch leaving the gifts of Cornish wine and shortbread - we really enjoyed them both - thank you. We would stay again.

  • "Cobble Cottage was exactly what I had in mind when I was tasked with organising a long weekend in Cornwall for my parents, partner and myself."

    The cottage itself had all the charm and character you’d want, plus a nice kitchen, living space and two reasonable doubles and a single. The added bonus of being in the heart of the village - with pubs and restaurants and access to the coastal walks - was just perfect. We did not have to leave the village of an evening, so we could relax and all have a drink. Thanks for hosting us!

  • "Absolutely loved Cobble Cottage, we had a very relaxing week."

    The cottage is very homely with everything we needed to hand. All the personal touches, fresh flowers, milk in the fridge, local wine, biscuits, made us feel so welcome. It was so cosy with the fire lit in the evenings. We love Boscastle & had a fabulous stay, have already re-booked for next year.

  • "Excellent week in Cobble Cottage, second holiday this year there."

    A really comfortable cottage, cosy and clean. A great location in sleepy Boscastle with good food in nearby Cob and Riverside, plus the bakers across the way for pastries and bread in the morning, and without fail a visit to Jamaica Inn further on the Moor. Lovely welcome gifts which were much appreciated after the journey down, thank you! We visited loads of places while there including Tintagel (King Arthur's Halls and Old Post Office), Bude, Crackington Haven, Wheal Martyn, Bodmin Gail, St Nectans Glen, Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, Vale of Avalon, Jamaica Inn, among others. We will return hopefully next year! Dave Ely

  • "This was an absolute gem in the hot weather - so cool."

    Nice and central! Surely the loveliest cottage in Boscastle. Very well equipped. A washing line across the top of the garden would be really very useful - maybe one you can pull out from one of the fence posts. I’d also suggest bolting the bedside tables to the wall in the front bedroom as they can easily tip over due to uneven floor as you expect in an old cottage.

    Starting to feel a bit tired and in need of tlc. Shower scalding or cold with no real in between. However love Cobble Cottage and can’t wait return.

    Thanks for reporting the shower issue - we replaced the shower in July. Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage which is very well equipped, clean and comfortable."

    We particularly liked sitting on the terrace (between showers!) looking out at the activity in the village down below. Although the cottage is quietly situated it is very convenient to nip out to the shops or a walk down to the harbour. Parking in the public car park was no trouble either. Unfortunately the weather turned very cold for the end of June and we were glad of the logs for the fire. The only slight negative to our stay was trying to work out how to turn on the heating. We had to give up in the end! Would recommend more detailed instructions to use the night storage heating. Would stay here again.

  • "Fully equipped cottage with all the amenities set in a wonderful pictures location."

    The cottage felt homely from the moment we arrived till the moment we left. The small welcome basket was a nice touch along with the welcome note from Isla. Would highly recommend a stay here if you are looking for peace and tranquillity that is great base to explore the north coast or Cornwall.

  • "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.

  • "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.

    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 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.
