Favourite Boscastle Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several cottages in Boscastle and this one is definitely our favourite. As we live in a hot climate, we particularly appreciated the instant heating on a cool, wet night and the updated shower in the morning. The cottage is very well maintained/equipped and is clean, cozy and comfortable. It is situated in an ideal location with an easy walk to the coastal path and local pubs and shops.

First Class Cottage in a lovely Cornish Village

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting Boscastle regularly for the last 30 years and we feel that Melbourne Cottage is the best accommodation we've ever stayed in - so comfortably furnished and well-equipped. The cottage was the perfect retreat from the cold weather - very warm and cosy. The fresh flowers along with the refreshments on arrival were an added and unexpected bonus. The cottage is well located for access to wonderful scenic walks along the coast path and it takes only 10 minutes to walk to the local pubs and village shops. One final point - the cottage has it's own off-road car parking space which is an asset in Boscastle. We would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage and will be returning there ourselves.
