  • "This is such a lovely holiday home."

    Michele and Enzo have taken great care to provide everything you could need for a family or group stay. It's so comfortable with a lovely garden. We have stayed in many holiday homes and this is one of the best. Boscastle is a beautiful area of Cornwall with a spectacular coastline.

  • "Absolutely perfect… spotlessly clean and well equipped."

    So spacious for a large family group and a real luxury that every bedroom has an en-suite! Would highly recommend Orchard Lodge for a family stay in Cornwall.

  • "Orchard Lodge was a beautiful, welcoming, warm, very well presented home with on-site parking."

    It was extremely clean and had a very well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were large with excellent en-suite facilities. The showers were powerful and hot. We were able to enjoy sitting in the garden, with a coffee, listening to the birds. We had fun playing table tennis. The lounges were comfortable with games, books and puzzles. It was a faultless rental in a beautiful part of the country. We would highly recommend. Michele, the owner was very welcoming and was on hand if we required anything. A very big thank you.

    Orchard Lodge is so well equipped that it feels like home. We had 3 generations staying together and the rooms, childrens games, table tennis, bbq and kitchen equipment ensured we had the most wonderful stay. The hosts are so helpful and the location in beautiful Boscastle with its eateries, shops and scenic coastal walks is just perfect.

    Bedrooms all well fitted out all with shower facilities. Kitchen - dining area all good. Only remark I could make is that the photos tend to make the garden look a little bigger than it is, however still comfortable.

  • "A lovely well equipped cottage with plenty of space for everyone."

    The attention to detail was impeccable. The cottage is ideal for families of all ages, the table tennis table, board games and play station kept the children occupied. Located within easy distance for visiting towns I.e. Padstow, Tintagel, Bude and Widemouth Bay. I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough.

So much to do and see in the surrounding area and our highlights included a Boscastle walk, Eden Project, Camel Trail, Tintagel, Lanhydrock and much more. Highly recommended!

    Every bedroom beautifully designed as was the whole house. The only worry if you went in the summer was pulling out onto the main road - don’t know if a mirror on opposite corner would be allowed by the council?

  • "A really great property."

    Everything was thought about. It was perfect for our family holiday. We were 3 generations and the en-suite facilities and the layout gave us all plenty of space and privacy. All of the little things were thought of, there was hand wash by all of the sinks, shower gel, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and salt and pepper. There was also plenty of cutlery, crockery and glasses for us all. The beds and the bedding were really comfortable and good quality. It’s a bit of a walk down to the harbour and a choice of restaurants but there’s a really good one just around the corner, and a convenience store about 100m away. I would highly recommend.

Our group of 8 have stayed in many cottages over the years, and Orchard Lodge is in the top 3. Ideal for us, with the separate dining room, and large sitting room. Exceptionally well equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. En-suites and a bathroom which is one of our priorities, We will most definitely recommend it to our families and friends.

  • "The house is very tastefully appointed."

    All of the rooms and contents are of a high standard and clearly chosen with thought and care. The fact that every bedroom has an on suite shower/toilet is very unusual and extremely convenient. The gardens (front and rear) are lovely, with apple trees at the rear, but smaller than they appear in the photos so, if children are part of the family, they will not have much room to run around or play games. This is not a criticism, just a fact. The rear patio area with large garden table and chairs is perfect for a sunny evening, as the light went one night we had two or three tawny owls calling in the nearby trees, lovely! With a location that is central for so many of the attractions and stunning scenery available in this part of north Cornwall, the house was an excellent choice for us and we would book again without hesitation. The Boscastle Farm shop, a 5 minute drive from the house into the hills above Boscastle is highly recommended, for high quality meals in the restaurant or purchasing some of their huge array of home farm reared meats or in house baked products.

  • "This is a special property which helped us create many happy family memories."

    Every room is beautifully and individually decorated, and all have en-suite shower rooms. There are plenty of rooms for everyone to spread out and the garden and huge outdoor table meant we usually ate outside. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, and plenty big enough to cook for a large group. We had many evenings in the Napoleon Inn, the food was excellent and a really warm atmosphere. The spar shop at the bottom of town covered most of our needs, and wasn’t too expensive. For a bigger shop we headed to Wadebridge that has Tesco, Aldi and other supermarkets. All in all this was an amazing holiday home, and we hope to be back someday soon.

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.
