Overview

About the property

Cottage in Boscastle, Cornwall, England - Only A Short Walk From Boscastle Harbour And Village Centre, Perfectly Placed For Cliff Top Walks

Frogapits is a traditional stone-built Cornish cottage that has a charm all of its own. Set in a beautiful garden with a stream running through it, it's a wonderful spot to relax and enjoy the perfect Cornish holiday. There are plenty of activities to be had during the day - cliff-top walks straight from the front door, beaches and surf spots within easy driving distance. In the evening, relax with a barbecue by the stream in the garden, or walk to one of Boscastle's three characterful pubs (the nearest of which is only 50 yards away). In the winter, the cottage comes into its own with a wood burning stove in the sitting room and a smokeless fuel stove in the kitchen - get both going at once and it couldn't be cosier. We really believe that you'd be hard pushed to find a house with so much going for it - as a family we've been staying here for decades and hope to do so for many more.

About Duncan and Rob Soar

Frogapits is owned by brothers Rob and Duncan. The cottage has been in our family for several decades and we and our family and friends have spent many happy holidays staying at the cottage.

Duncan and Rob Soar purchased this cottage in 1980

Why Duncan and Rob Soar chose Boscastle

We've always loved coming to Frogapits for its unique charm and its wonderful location. Whether you're having a summer barbecue or picnic by the stream in the garden, or battening down the hatches, lighting the fires and keeping out the Cornish weather in the winter, the cottage is a wonderful place to spend a relaxing break. The rugged north Cornish cliffs are only a short walk away, there are beaches to drive to in the summer, some wonderful village pubs to spend the evening, great Cornish pasties to be had from the village baker's, and so many other things to enjoy about your stay here.

A truly magical cottage in a stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

Frogapitts has become our favourite cottage to stay in when visiting Cornwall. It is in a simply stunning location with beautiful gardens and the river flowing right through. The cottage is warm, cosy and has everything you would need for an idyllic stay in Boscastle. With the log burners blazing in both the kitchen and sitting room life does not get much better! We chose this cottage for our honeymoon having stayed here previously and have had the most wonderful time. The cottage is only a 1 minute stroll to the village and yet you would never know as the grounds are so stunning. Very easy access to the harbour and coastal paths makes this a fabulous location for walking. I would thoroughly recommend Frogapitts. We fell on love with the place the first time we came and booked our wedding around the availability of this beautiful cottage as there was nowhere else we wanted to spend our honeymoon!

Idyllic Setting

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into this cottage we felt at home. It's comfortable and full of charm. The setting is idyllic, with the stream, whilst being close to the centre of Boscastle but you wouldn't know it. We'll definitely be back!

Idyllic coastal retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to frogapits. The garden is delightful, and the stream is stunning - especially enjoyed by our dog Roxy after some rather warm weather walks.

The cottage kept itself wonderfully cool, which was perfect in the warm weather (though there was plenty of facility to warm it if you had needed to!)

We were close to everything In the town and had no trouble parking on the street outside the cottage.

A lovely haven that feels secluded but with all the practicalities of village life!

A beautiful cosy cottage full of character. Stunning location and a garden complete with stream!

  • 5 of 5

Frogapits is perfectly located in Boscastle being just yards from the village yet set in a stunning tranquil garden complete with a stream running through it. The cottage is warm, full of character and it was a privilege to be able to stay here. Everything we needed was provided and we loved eating outside in the garden listening to the stream and the birds. For those who love beautiful cosy cottages you will not find a better one in Boscastle. We, no doubt like the many others who had written in the guest book, will be returning. The walk to the harbour entrance and coastal paths takes minutes. We visited Boscastle farm shop and cafe and had an amazing lunch with views that would be hard to beat. Rocky Valley was another spectacular walk. This is the kind of place I would love to live in! The cottage was immaculately clean, Towells provided, a very powerful shower and log burners in both the kitchen and lounge. The parking on the road was absolutely not an issue and allowed easy loading/unloading. Tea, Milk and biscuits were there on arrival. We loved staying at Frogapits and would highly recommend this cottage.

A lovely cottage in a great location.

  • 4 of 5

Frogapits is a characterful comfortable cottage to stay in with everything you could need. The location could not be better. It is only a short walk to Boscastle harbour and all the facilities that Boscastle has to offer. Set in it's own gardens with a lovely stream running through. Parking was a little hit and miss as you have to take pot luck in order to park nearby. If it had it's own parking space it would be just perfect.
