  • "When searching for a property I did state I wanted parking."

    We did not realise until the final details were sent the parking was on the quiet road next to the property. This meant when returning from a a day out we had to search for a parking space. The size of the living room and double bedroom was smaller than expected and a bit compact but still serviceable. The size of the shower room was small and luckily none of us were very tall otherwise I think it would have been difficult to use. The property itself was lovely and did not spoil our holiday.

  • "Beware if you want privacy in the courtyard garden/house -you wont get it because its a shared access with the ajoining "jordan cottage" so depending if its a holiday let or the people own it [we never found out] you will have a loud barking dog and/or various people walking past who can see directly into your front room and kitchen or indeed past you as you sit in the garden having a bbq etc."

    main double bed matteress to short by about 12 inches so either a gap pillow end or feet end! single beds almost for children? bath takes around an hour to fill downstairs [converted cellar] shower is for very short people only@ six foot my head squished on ceiling light settees uncomfortable oven takes an age to get warm as do the tops, parking is iffy at best, we did just manage to find a spot each night but on two occasions only just [last spot] who knows what it would be like in high season, probably a nightmare. so in summary a clean well appointed house but not as "perfect" as the advert and reveiws would have us beleive

  • "It was lovely and so kind of the manager of the property to provide cream tea for our arrival."

    The shower though was manageable unfortunately did not have a drainage system which flowed and as such it took some time for the water to go down the plug hole and as such was not very nice when having a shower. The location and cottage were nice, however we were concerned regarding the cleanliness of the property especially with regards to the additional measures which should be in place due to COVID. There were wrappers left from a previous customer under the sofa and the carpets and sofa itself didn’t appear too clean. My understanding the additional measures required of COVID was deep clean was required after each stay which didn’t appear to have taken place as we felt we needed to clean parts ourselves before usage which shouldn’t be the case? Also my understanding is that cushions shouldn’t be in the property to prevent infection, which there were on all the beds and sofa which was a concern for us as there was no sanitiser in the property.

  • "This is the second time we’ve stayed at Jordan Cottage, we had a few more issues this time; - Both bottom windows don’t lock (can be opened from the outside) - No bin bags, toilet roll, kitchen roll or dishwasher tablets left - Plug in the lounge very loose and hanging out of the wall Netflix on the TV was a nice bonus as we didn’t remember this from the first time."

    House is really comfy and has a homely feel to it. If we were to come to boscastle again we would definitely stay here. Thank you!!

  • "Excellent cottage - beautifully furnished, functional and very pretty - in a beautiful location."

    Woukd recommend highly. One teeny minor point - it would be good if the cleaners picked up the windfallen apples in the garden when they go in because they were rotting and attracting wasps.

  • "Our stay at Jordan House was just perfect!"

    I have no idea how anyone can post a review that’s less than complimentary as the cottage contained everything we could have wished for and more! Every need and want was considered, from the modern and light decor to the dishwasher, barbecue and even a cream tea provided for our arrival. The cottage was spotlessly clean and spacious, providing us with such a comfortable ‘home from home’ feeling. The location is idyllic and so close to the shops, pubs and restaurants of the village and harbour. We managed to park easily right near the cottage, although the street is narrow, as other reviewers have suggested, and which is to be expected in such a picturesque village. It was also an excellent base from which to explore other parts of the Atlantic Coast and North Cornwall... We ventured to Bude, Padstow, Tintagel, and Port Isaac along the coast, and inland to Jamaica Inn, Lanhydrock and the Eden Project - all within easy reach by car. Thank you so much for such a perfect stay - I can’t recommend Jordan House enough and I’m missing it already!

  • "One of the best Sykes cottages we have stayed in."

    Exceeded all our expectations. The parking wasn’t an issue we were able to park very close to our accommodation each time with ease. Would like to return again.

  • "Lovely cottage but a few issues relating to maintenance would enhance stay."

    Clearly owners do not stay on a regular basis. Kitchen - broken on arrival: dustpan and brush, washing up bowl split in side, oven & hob very slow to heat and dials worn so new users find difficult to operate. Pictures in frames displayed Seafood restaurant in 2006 now since closed! Cupboards smell musty and as other comments a deep clean throughout house is needed. Shower Room - door rubs on floor and shower needs ‘gunk’ removing to drain effectively. Utility Room - broken on arrival - clothes airer and vacuum previously tried to be fixed but does not suck. Windows throughout could do with stays to sash windows to prevent banging shut. I hope comments help with general maintenance and allow others to enjoy their stay

  • "Although parking is available on the street near Jordan House this is very limited and the road is very narrow."

    Some of the neighbours are also a little possessive about what they perceive to be ‘their’ space. We discovered that Boscastle car park was free overnight (between 5pm and 10am) and decided to leave our car there each evening. Please be aware that it is a steep walk uphill to the cottage from the car park so this would not suit everyone. Apart from that one issue we loved the cottage and the area.

  • "You really need to see this property yourselves before advertising it."

    It is extremely run down and neglected. We had to buy cleaning equipment to clean the cupboards in the kitchen before putting any food in them. We had a few issues such as no clothes airer (although we had expected an outside washing line) the TV upstairs did not work and the batteries in the remote had rotted away, the lights in the utility room in the basement did not work at all so we could not see how to use the washing machine. Sarah, the caretaker did respond quickly when we contacted her but when we left the lights still were not working. There were dirty marks on the walls, the radiators were all dirty and dusty, there was dust everywhere and it was very difficult to try to relax in this environment. On the day we left I stripped the double bed, which is what we normally do when we leave a property, and was sickened by the state of the mattress cover. I wish I had seen it on the day we arrived because I would not have slept on it. My husband slept in the twin room and I didn't strip that bed so don't know what state the cover was in. I will be forwarding photos separately. We do have 3 cottage holidays every year, often in Devon/Cornwall and have stayed in old, traditional houses many times but there is no excuse for this level of dirt and neglect.

  • "We had no hot water ."

    . no bath which was a feature (roll top) No saucepans ( xmas dinner was cooked with borrowed pans ) No heating for last 3 days.. ( we have now got flu) Shared access at the front of property was not told about this ( we have a dog so did next door) When we booked property you send emails to wrong address therefore we couldn’t cancel insurance .. ( we had our own) Paying for gas that we didn’t use is a complete joke Therefore we request some kind of compensation for our ruined Christmas ... and will not be using Sykes again

    Thank you for your feedback, I am sorry to read this, as we pride ourselves on providing a lovely holiday home for our guests to enjoy. I am at a loss to understand why you had a problem with hot water and heating, I have been at the property for a week, two days after your departure and had no such issues. If you were having any issues with working any of the amenities then the caretaker could certainly have helped you if you had called her. There were two saucepans in the property a small and a large, the medium one does seem to be missing, which I will replace. Our Caretaker did advise you called her about saucepans and she offered to provide you with more. With relation to any issues with the emails and insurance this would be to do with Sykes not our property. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay, as stated above if you had requested assistance whilst at the property I am sure we could have resolved any problem you had. Kind regards Property Owner

    The separate big kitchen with it's own door and big table, allowed one person to use the TV room / lounge, and the other to use the kitchen or the bedroom with it's own TV and interesting village "back-ends" view. - This, and the two separate WCs, made it ideal for two (to three) people who "enjoy their own space" !

    Drain/blockage issues which were reported by previous occupant where fixed straight away.

The property

In the heart of the picturesque village of Boscastle, on a bustling little residential lane is Jordan House, a stylish semi-detached family home, filled with character and set on three levels.

This historic property has a small enclosed courtyard garden to the front which has views over the valley beyond.

Entering on the ground floor, the smart fitted Shaker-style kitchen/dining room with slate floor, has a large pine table and chairs.

The cosy living room has big sofas, an open fire and colourful prints of Cornish scenes adorn the walls.

From the hall, steep stairs lead to two pretty bedrooms – a double with TV, and a twin, both with views over the courtyard garden and the hills beyond.

They share the elegant family bathroom which has a roll top bath and eye catching checkerboard floor.

On the lower ground floor is a shower-room and useful utility room.

From Jordan House, the historic harbour with its famed Museum of Witchcraft, interesting local potteries and art galleries is in walking distance.

Here you'll find quaint old buildings now converted to restaurants and coffee shops.

Much of the surrounding landscape and coastline is National Trust owned, scenery so impressive it is said to have been an inspiration to novelist Thomas Hardy who met his sweetheart Emma here whilst working as an architect on the church tower.

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.
