“Full of charm and great location!”
Reviewed 14 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We just got back from a fantastic visit to Boscastle. The cottage was lovely inside; well-decorated, very clean, smelled nice. Pictures of the kitchen don't do it justice, either - I was in kitchen-heaven all week! We didn't want to leave! The double bed seemed just a tad smaller than our own bed, so that was a bit of a squeeze, but we still slept alright. We stayed on the ground floor, and other than a small step to get inside it's very accessible - easy on my knee injury.

The location is excellent - right outside your front door there's a small store to pick up some groceries and a few restaurants if you'd rather eat out. There's also other nearby shops with art and crafts and touristy things. We were also very pleased to be able to bring our dog.

One thing to note - make sure you do use the traffic cone provided to protect your parking spot when you go out during the day, otherwise you'll almost certainly lose your space.

Spent a very nice week in this lovely apartment, it is well situated in the village within walking distance to all amenities and the beautiful harbour. The house was very clean, well decorated and fully equipped for our stay. I highly recommend this property for a very relaxing and welcome break.
