  • "We had the best week in Cornwall, making fantastic memories."

    Boscastle was extremely pretty and the cottage was absolutely beautiful!! We took our dog on her first holiday and the garden was amazing and very safe. The cottage itself was beautifully decorated and very well presented. It really was home from home. Just up the road is a pub called the Napoleon and we had a really lovely meal in there so would highly recommend. There are 2 convenience stores, 1 up the top of the hill and one in the village down the hill, both were well stocked. I felt the cottage was in a great location, yes it’s a drive out to visit different places but they were never too far and the drive looking at the countryside was a pleasure in itself. We visited Bude, Port Issac, Padstow, Daymer Bay, Rock and many more!!! Everywhere we went was really dog friendly especially Daymer Bay, the dogs are allowed off leads and could enjoy their freedom. If there was a negative it might be the parking? It is off street but extremely tight, however with a little bit of skill & patience my husband perfected the parking by the 2nd day!! We however have a Golf and anything bigger would definitely struggle. There is parking to the front (which is where my daughter parked) but at times this was extremely busy? All in all it really was a perfect holiday. Thanks again for allowing us to use your beautiful home.

  • "Lovely cottage, great position, nicely decorated, everything we needed."

    The garden was also nice with 3 areas enabling the sun at all times of the day. We found access to the parking area difficult with the size of our car but managed to park on the roadside outside. Although a steep hill great to be able to walk to the harbour, pubs and shops without using the car. Our only concern was the broken boiler and water for showering although managing with the immersion heater and staggering showers between us. The owner was very concerned and kind regarding this problem however. A great holiday overall and we will return. Thanks.

  • "We loved this property."

    The only disappointment was that our car was too big to be able to use the parking space so parking was an issue everyday. I think you should warn people upfront that it is only suitable for small cars.

  • "Lovely cottage, well equipped and comfortable."

    Good position for lots of sightseeing in the area. Lovely walks through fields and woods down to the village on the doorstep. Although you need a strong heart to walk up the steep hill along the road to the cottage. Take it easy, it’s fine. Perfect for dogs, with a large garden. A few steep steps from the back door to the garden but we managed it fine, so did the dogs. We had quite a large jeep vehicle which we managed to squeeze down the side of the cottage to the parking space. There’s no space if you had two cars though. Limited parking on the road outside cottage. Would recommend the cottage and we will stay again.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely location."

    Very close to a great pub, very welcoming with good food. The cottage is very comfortable with all the equipment you need. Boscastle is a lovely place to spend a couple of hours, and the nearby farm shop is fabulous, with a fantastic view!

  • "Absolutely lovely cottage equipped with everything needed for a lovely stay!"

    The parking space is very tight though (just a warning for those with larger cars or those who aren’t confident drivers!) it is possible to park on the road though so it wasn’t an issue. Thank you for a wonderful stay

  • "The cottage is simply beautiful - the website images do not do it justice."

    The location is also perfect, as the journeys down and back up the Old Road (to and from the harbour and the village) add to the adventure and enhance a visitor's appreciation of Boscastle's considerable charms and all that it has to offer.

  • "We had a fabulous time, the cottage was just perfect."

    Boscastle itself and the surrounding area is an ideal base to explore North Cornwall and Fairfield and its garden provided us with a much needed relaxing holiday. The weather certainly helped and swimming in Boscastle harbour was an experience. The walks from the cottage are excellent in all directions and we discovered walks where we didn't have to climb back up the hill - result!

  • "We had a great holiday, in no small part due to the wonderful accommodation - we could not have asked for me."

    The location; ability to park virtually outside; pub and local shop just up the road; challenging, but great walks. The quality of the equipment, fixtures and fittings in the cottage were first class, everything was to a high standard, including all the kitchenware/glass/crockery/cutlery. Plenty of everything. A real home from home.

  • "This is the perfect cottage for a family holiday - off road parking, fully equipped & beautifully presented."

    The thought that has gone into making it a real home from home is obvious & we could not have wished for anywhere better. We used the cottage as a base for exploring Cornwall & a bit of Devon - coming back to the comfort & convenience of this lovely cottage every evening just added to the whole enjoyment. The garden provided a great haven for the children to let off more steam whilst parents & grandparents re-couped with a glass or two. The easy access to Boscastle & it’s delights meant that if we didn’t want to cook there were great alternatives - Napoleon Inn 2 min walk & Shirley's Plaice which serves great fish & chips on the harbour. Wonderful holiday & can’t recommend this cottage highly enough.

    It was warm cosy and very comfortable, with everything that we needed and more. Boscastle itself is quiet and picturesque, with lots of walks and is ideally situated for visiting many other beautiful places, including Tintagel. We would highly recommend the cottage.... as a family of four, with a dog.

  • "Beautiful cottage that is well placed for everything Boscastle has to offer, pub on the doorstep was a real bonus and had a lovely log fire and good food, we did some walks in both the immediate area and the coastal walk from the harbour to Tintagel."

    Nearly everything about the home was awesome very warm, very spacious, very clean and very comfortable. Only very MINOR drawbacks were if you were planning on cooking each night the pots , pans etc were a little limited tired and scratched we have found this with most rentals though. The plug in the bath did not seal 100% and I personally found the placement of the plug awkward and made bathing uncomfortable. The parking to the side is great if you have a small car , our Kuga was a tight fit (although not as tight fit as gunpool lane lol) but we had no issues parking out front of the property in early December. I would highly recommend this home to anyone and my husband said it would be a beautiful place to spend Christmas.

  • "Just returned from a wonderful week at Fairfield Cottage in Boscastle."

    The cottage was everything you would hope to find in this delightful village - spotlessly clean, exactly as described and full of surprises. The additional items such as outdoor blankets, surf boards & fire pit added to the full enjoyment of our stay. Our stay was the last week before indoor eating was allowed so we cooked every night - the kitchen is so well equipped with extras like foil & cling film, must haves like garlic press & lots of pots & pans of various sizes. High chair, cot bed & stair gate all provided which resulted in a relaxed, sleep enabled stay with our young children. This is a magical place & like a home from home - we loved it & will be back next year.

    Lovely comfy bed. This is 4th time we have been to Boscastle & we were aware of the steep walk to the cottage- however I don't think this was mentioned in the overall description of the property, so think it would be a good idea to inform future guests who may not be able to manage this.

The property

This captivating cottage, Fairfield Cottage, is adorably rustic with coastal charm and country character, sitting in the delightful village of Boscastle - just a short walk from the beautifully dramatic north Cornish coast.

Set over two floors and brimming with characterful features including exposed stone walls, wooden beams and traditional slate floors, this is the ideal dwelling for a family of six.

The welcoming sitting room makes a charming nook of plush sofas with a woodburning stove to snuggle up to.

The kitchen/diner is welcoming with a big rustic table to gather around for that impossible-to-resist cream tea.

The country-chic bedrooms are great spots to retreat to, offering a king-size, double and twin; a bathroom can also be found nearby, along with a handy ground-floor shower room that offers laundry facilities too!

The pretty rear garden is reached by some steps, with a patio acting as a sunspot and lawn with distant sea views.

Embark on a leisurely stroll downhill to Boscastle's picturesque harbour discovering the museum, pottery shop, galleries, pubs and eateries on the way to the headland.

Crackington Haven is just a few miles away, with a cove of pebbles and rock pools - an almost hidden gem ideal for picnics, paddles or riding the surf.

Tintagel, a short drive away, hosts the legendary King Arthur's Castle and there are stunning beaches and little fishing coves dotted around the shoreline.

Port Isaac is picture-perfect and the colourful seaside resort of Bude is just moments away.

This Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a paradise for walkers, cyclists and wildlife enthusiasts with scenic coastal footpaths and woodland valley trails.

A perfect cottage for those wanting to be near the north Cornish coast.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £100.

About the location


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.
