  • "We were delighted with the accomodation, my husband is disabled and apart from a couple of small steps into the garden and the appartment which were easily overcome the place was ideals for us."

    It is close to the shope, restaurants and pubs so everything is on the doorstep xx We loved it xx

  • "The apartment was cramped and uncomfortable."

    The 3 windows opened either directly onto the street or a restaurant seating area - so noisy and dark (had to keep blinds closed for some privacy). Lounge/ kitchen area suitable for 2 people not 4. We left early because it was so uncomfortable.

  • "Great location in the centre of Boscastle."

    The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for the stay. Ignore the parking as it’s very difficult to get into, we paid for a weeks parking in the public car park via the app.

  • "Loved the central location in Boscastle and close vicinity to the harbour and all of the eating places and shops."

    The apartment was very clean and furnished to a high standard, we really enjoyed our time here and were very comfortable. The staff at the nearby Riverside were very friendly helpful if ever we needed them.

  • "The apartment itself was tiny but ok."

    But I would not recommend it for 4 people if they are grownups. I booked it via Booking.com where it was described including free parking near the house. After paying the rent and shortly before our holiday started we received an email from the landlord including key collecting and other information. He recommended using the public car park by purchasing a weekly ticket which is about 36£, otherwise there would be a private parking space for a small car after a few houses down the road. When we entered the flat we found an information folder containing it which was mentioned the space would do for a car not bigger than 2 m in width and 1.95 m in height.

  • "Car parking was supposed to have been provided."

    It turned out that the "allocated space" was over 200 yards from the apartment and it was VERY tight (with a ford fiesta), plus you had to manoeuvre into it from the main road through Boscastle with one side being a blind bend. My husband is very good at parking but having knocked his wing mirror twice, he gave up using the space and used the public car park, which was chargeable from 10 am to 5 pm. To unload our car when we arrived, we were told we could use the double yellows outside the property, but this was taken with another vehicle so we were not able to do so. There was supposed to have been a garden - there wasn't. There was a small courtyard with planters at the front of the property, but this was for access to the whole building. The gate from this courtyard was straight out onto a main road,without pavement, so it was not safe for our daughter. The lounge from the property is partly below the level of the road, so you feel that you are in a basement. Immediately outside the window there was a cafe, so you felt that you needed to have the blind down the whole time to have some privacy. Both bedrooms overlooked the main road so we felt that we had no privacy and had to keep the blinds drawn.

  • "The cottage was excellent in almost every aspect."

    It was comfortable and pretty much everything you need is provided. It is right in the centre and there are good places to eat within a 2 minute walk. There is plenty of hot water and a great shower. The wifi is strong and reliable. Only two caveats. First, no parking unless you have a small car. But actually there is a public car park only a two minute walk away which was free from 5pm to 10am and wasn't as expensive as most. Second, the cottage is right on the road and traffic noise early in the morning woke us. But overall it was a great holiday.

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.
