A Little Gem in Boscastle

Rated 5 out of 5

We stayed at the cottage for a week and we loved it. We’ve often been disappointed with holiday rentals but not this time. The cottage is in a lovely location with views over the village. It was spotlessly clean on arrival and there was a welcome pack awaiting us consisting of some local cider, biscuits etc. It was very well equipped and the furnishings weren’t tatty or well used as they sometimes can be! I would thoroughly recommend this place.

Springtime in Boscastle

This is a wonderful cottage. It’s cosy, clean and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. It is ideally situated in the picturesque village of Boscastle with access to many local walks and just 5 minutes from the nearest access point to the South West Coast Path. Our visit in May was also enhanced by the amazing sight of bluebells in Minster Wood and along Valency Valley – just as depicted in the lovely picture hanging on the wall of the cottage living room. We can’t wait to return.

An amazing cottage in a stunning location

Rated 5 out of 5

Melbourne Cottage is situated in the picturesque village of Boscastle. It’s at the end of Potters Lane and enjoys a stunning view of the hills on one side and is walking distance from the harbour and the visitor centre to the other. We stayed there for a week, which was always going to be too little. This location is perfect for making day trips to, Crackington Haven, Tintagel, Port Issac, Bude, The Eden Project, and a lot more. There are also plenty of walks from the cottage which should not be missed. Boscastle Pottery is one of a kind and don’t miss Roger, showing you how he ‘grows trees on a pot’.
The cottage itself is beautifully decorated. and is themed with Boscastle’s attractions. Andy and Carole have taken great care in thinking of the necessities and comfort of the daily life of guests from all aspects. The cottage is well equipped and the bedrooms are both cosy and comfortable. We felt it was like going from one home to another. If the weather is not good outside, you and your family can enjoy lots of games and puzzles. We loved our stay at this stunning cottage.

Great stay again

Rated 4 out of 5

This is our second stay here, last time was 5 years ago. The cottage is still immaculate and very cosy, especially with the mixed weather we had this time. Everything you could need is provided and we felt right at home.
It is a great base for the village and its pubs, and not far from other places to visit. The coast path is easy to access from this cottage and we had some excellent walks during our stay.

An Ideal Cottage in a Beautiful Location

Rated 5 out of 5

This was our seventh stay at Melbourne Cottage in five years and the second time we’ve visited at Christmas. We love this cottage, and its location, which is ideal for access to the coast path that leads down to the lovely village of Boscastle with its picturesque harbour and variety of places to eat, drink and shop. The cottage is clean, cosy and well-equipped and there are initial supplies of tea, coffee and milk to comfortably start off the holiday. We hope to visit again soon.
