Superb holiday cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

From the moment i walked into Little Pol i was thrilled. The barn is so clean, stylish and well equipped. The owners have thought of everything you could need and it's all excellent quality. From the dishwasher to the huge double bed, I can't fault anything! I could have happily lived there forever. We didn't have brilliant weather but the barn was so cosy and warm that it was not a problem. We had a lovely cream tea left for us on arrival which was a welcome treat after a long journey. The property has far reaching views over countryside and out to sea but be aware... it is a very long steep walk down to Boscastle itself and the return uphill walk is not for the fainthearted. You can drive down and there is limited public parking. The property is easy to find and the owners provide clear directions. You are a long way from a supermarket so an reroute stop off to buy provisions is recommended. One downside for me was the total lack of mobile phone signal and the refusal of my phone to pick up the WiFi on site. Not a real problem unless you have left two teenage sons at home for the first time! I am with Vodafone but I understand orange and ee get better reception. Overall I really loved our stay at Little Pol, the property is brilliant and perfect for a relaxing break. A car is probably a must unless you are used to a lot of uphill walking. Lots of places of interest nearby. I highly recommend the Napoleon pub a mile down the lane...brilliant beer, food and super friendly staff. Our whippet loved the little garden behind the barn. Go... you won't be disappointed.

The fabulous South West Coast Path is within easy reach and if you do not wish to use your car buses go to and from Boscastle.

The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within driving distance. Tingatel Castle is approximately 5 miles away by car. Padstow with its glorious harbour and many eateries is close by either using the car park at Rock and then the passenger ferry, alternatively you can travel to Padstow by car. Camel Valley Vineyard is another interesting stop for a tour or, you can of course just sample a glass of wine or two!
