  • "We had a great time, very spacious house and the property was clean and tidy upon arrival."

    The TV didn't work due to a poor signal as others have mentioned but this was not a major issue for us. Boscastle is a good base to explore Northern Cornwall with Newquay, Padstow, Bude etc all within an hours drive. The local bus service is good too and the food in the Cobweb inn is great. Don't miss the sunsets from the cliff top if you can make the climb, they are stunning. We would come back again.

  • "The property was not clean."

    Hairs and toothpaste found in the bathroom sink, dirty marks on the toilet seat, sticky marks and food crumbs on kitchen worktops, dusty, dirty surfaces and floors. Photographs provided to Sykes. The television did not work and it was clear from conversations with the owner that she was aware of this and therefore property listings are knowingly inaccurate. In my opinion, parking in a 'nearby street' is misleading. Guest are not made to feel welcome. There is no welcome pack and not basics left in the kitchen. Not even a teabag. No hand soap, or any soap to wash ones hands after visiting the toilet, on arrival at the property. Unfortunately, finding a dirty and unhygienic property outweighs any positives that this property may have. Furthermore, the attitude of the owner was poor as was the attitude of Sykes. The owner is in breech of contract, as stated in Sykes booking conditions, yet Sykes will not do anything about this. Furthermore, Sykes ratings clearly cannot be relied on and are not only unhelpful, but misleading when trying to choose a property. Therefore, I could not recommend Sykes to anyone.

    Thank you for your feed back, which we take on board and have already discussed with our cleaning contractor. We are sorry that the property did not meet your expectations regarding cleanliness, but we were also surprised due to the previous excellent feed back received on this site. We would have ensured it was cleaned following your arrival, but you stated that you 'did not want to be disturbed on your holiday'. Regarding the TV, it was unfortunate that you could not get it to work, despite our suggestions, we were also happy to have it looked at, but you again stated that 'you did not want to be disturbed on your holiday'. The 'basics' have been removed due to previous covid restrictions, although we take on board your comments about the lack of soap and will address this. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic location, amazing property, excellent views from the terrace, had a lovely stay!"

    The only recommendation I would say to make it easier for guests is in the kitchen to have some basics like salt & pepper, a bit of sugar, perhaps a coffee machine - having said that there is a shop in the village where you can find everything that you need!

  • "Absolutely beautiful property with fabulous views over Boscastle."

    The rooms are all beautifully furnished and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook! The only downside are the steep steps to the property but no problem for our group. Wouldn’t hesitate to stay again.

  • "Lewarne is a beautiful house."

    Extremely luxurious and spacious. Fully equipped with everything you need. Boscastle is a lovely quaint cornish National Trust village and an excellent base to explore North Cornwall and the surrounding areas. Boscastle has some lovely reastaurants and tea house, all of which we would highly recommend. The Witches Museum is a must to visit. Full of intrigue. There are so many beaches to explore. Some with easy access, some are slightly more challanging to navigate. Lewarne had a lovely feel to it, very homely. Please do not be put off by the fact that you cannot park outside the property. We unloaded the car with no problems and parking is only one road away. We never had problems trying to find a parking place. Lewarne was the best property that we have ever stayed in.

  • "The pictures of the house do not do it justice, the house is spacious, lovely throughout and fantastically placed for getting into Boscastle and in particular the harbour."

    We travelled with two teenagers and we were able to do great things each and every day around the area. In the evening we watched films in the house and made great use of the excellent kitchen and dining room. The house is hard to access for those who struggle with steps and parking can be tricky (easiest place is pay and display) but otherwise this is a wonderful house and we fully recommend it.

Arriving at the cottage, be greeted by the charming front garden with patio and seating where you can enjoy your morning coffee as the world goes by.

Stepping into the property, be welcomed into the spacious lounge where you can look forward to snuggling up and enjoying a film with guests on the TV as the open fire crackles nearby.

Visit the local attractions of The Museum of Witchcraft and Magic, where you can expect a large collection of artefacts used for witchcraft and the interesting history surrounding it, soak up the scenery at Warren Point which overlooks the clear waters and beyond, or delve into history at the Site of Bottreux Castle, once home to the Norman Castle and now offers expansive views of Boscastle.

Take the short drive to the nearby village of Tintagel, famed for its castle which is alleged to be the birthplace of King Arthur, as well as the National Trust – Tintagel Old Post Office, where you can step back into the 1300s, along with a charming shop and beautiful gardens.

Just a little further is the town of Camelford, where you will find the North Cornwall Museum & Gallery, the picturesque Arthurian Centre where you can enjoy scenic walks, an archaeological dig, a delicious cream tea in the gardens, and the sounds of the flowing River Camel.

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.
