  • "Great location."

    Parking space is very small, only suitable for a small car. A light bulb was missing in the kitchen. Only three dishwasher tablets provided for a week. En suite is useful but very cramped. The cottage is over priced. Other than above, very comfortable.

  • "We had a lovely stay, helped by the beautiful weather."

    The property is very pretty on the outside and comfortable inside and had everything we needed. The owners are very quick to address issues mentioned in previous reviews (gate fitted, someone looking at the windows as we left). It is ideally located in that you are close to everything (lovely shops, places to eat , the harbour and walks) but the downside of that is that it isn't very private when you are sitting out.I would say that parking is tight but the windows guy managed to get an enormous truck in with room for other vehicles to get by. Recycling is an issue. There no longer seem to be bins on the car parks and the tip was closed when we took everything the day before we left. Generally a lovely place and we will return.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the cottage."

    We found everything we needed and were very comfortable. The welcome scones were greatly appreciated by our boys! Great to see a gate had been added to make the patio secure for our dog. Some of the windows were very stiff and wouldn’t open. Would be good to ensure they can all be opened as good for ventilation (especially in the porch area). It was really good to have a parking space (no problems with our X5). We will very likely be back again!

    We are so pleased to receive your positive feedback and to hear that you enjoyed a comfortable family holiday in our cottage. We shall take on board your comment about the windows, and thank you for highlighting this - and look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Property Owner

  • "Olde Carpenters Cottage overall is a good cottage in a good location but extremely overpriced for July."

    It was generally clean & comfortable and good to have parking and be close to village. There are several areas that require improving, for example: poor cleanliness of toilets-others hairs etc, black mould on main bathroom walls as well as behind bedroom curtains and net curtains, no hand soap in kitchen which is very basic, Only one towel each which is just cheap. It is not private as everyone that walks past looks into lounge. It is simply not worth the money in July(£1330 1 week) and I feel for the owners as Sykes cannot manage fish in a bowl. I provided feedback directly to owner who provided a very basic response, not stating she will pass to Sykes which gives the impression that she doesn’t care, effective communication is simple. Sykes phoned but I was busy and they stated they would call back but nothing so advised owner again who said she would chase up but after some days….nothing. Very unprofessional and clearly Sykes do not care. I would not recommend Sykes and would only return to Olde Carpenters if price was right and all issues resolved.

    It is perfectly located it is equipped with everything you require and the furnishing is very high quality. The cottage was very clean and the nice touches of cream scones and flowers on arrival was appreciated. Would I recommend it. Yes. Would I rent it again. Yes. Wonderful.

  • "Cottage was comfortable and well equipped."

    The location is beautiful and there are good places to eat nearby, even for someone on a gluten-free diet. Parking is quite tight if you have a large car and turning the car in the road isn't easy, especially if there are lots of walkers around but this wouldn't stop us booking again!

    Thanks for the lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Property Owner

    the only negative was that the cleaners were outside at 9.45 on check out day which made us rush

    Thanks for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Our cleaners would not try to come in before 10:00 am but we are sorry that their presence made you feel uncomfortable. We will make sure they are not there before 10:00 am in the future if guests are still in the cottage. Property Owner

    A great welcome pack and the drying rack in the bathroom came in useful. Lots of returning guests in the visitors book which is always a good sign. One small suggestion to improve things would be to update the stereo system-DAB and Bluetooth are a minimum nowadays. Many thanks.

    Thanks for the helpful feedback. We have just bought a DAB/bluetooth system and will set it up at the Cottage on Monday. Good suggestion! Hope to see you again sometime soon. Property Owner

The property

This beautiful single-storey cottage is situated right on the famous Elizabethan harbour, overlooking the river, in the picturesque village of Boscastle.

This delightful cottage is in a spectacular ravine location, one of the most idyllic in the county, offering direct access to the famous South West Coastal Path, and a perfect base for families and friends who wish to tour the dramatic north coast of Cornwall.

Parking in your private space right next to the cottage, you enter into the porch leading you into the comfy sitting room.

There are two bedrooms here, both with fine river views, a double with en-suite facilities and a twin bedroom.

The kitchen, with dining area and bathroom, complete the accommodation.

Outside the cottage is a patio area, a perfect spot to watch the world go by and relax.

When it comes to an evening out, just a short stroll from the cottage will take you to the centre of the village.

Here you will find a choice of excellent pubs and restaurants, including the famous Cobweb Inn which, even in the winter with its two open fires, is a most welcoming Cornish pub, with a good local reputation for excellent food, and a fine choice of locally-brewed ales.

Venture south to Tintagel to spend the day touring Glebe Cliff, Merlin's Cave and Tintagel Castle, before embarking on the National Trust Bagalow hike.

Camelford isn't far and is home to the North Cornwall Museum & Gallery, along with the Davidstow Airfield and Cornwall at War Museum for those aviation fans.

Port Isaac, Crackington Haven and Bude are just moments away and also make for great days out by the coast.

A beautifully-furnished cottage in a truly stunning location and perfect for all year round holidays and short breaks.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
