A gem of a place to stay

5.0 rating

Ssh! Maybe I shouldn’t say this too loudly or we may not find any availability when we next want to visit our hidden gem of a place to stay! Incredibly well equipped and well maintained, we wanted for nothing during our 2 week stay recently. The icing on the cake is location. Just 5 minutes from the coast path and half way up/down the hill into the village. Thanks so much for making us feel so welcome!


Lovely cottage in a great location

Another great week spent at Melbourne Cottage.
This cottage is very well appointed and comfortable. It is in a perfect position to enjoy a quiet break in fantastic Boscastle with easy access to Forrabury and The Stitches to then walk down to the end of the picturesque and unique harbour from where you can enjoy the excellent eating and drinking options of the village.
The excellent Napoleon Inn is only 5 minutes (flat) walk away from the cottage too!
Highly recommend.

Beautiful Cottage In A Charming Location.

Melbourne Cottage is the most delightful cottage that we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Situated in the quaint harbour village of Boscastle, the view from the front garden is breathtaking. The cottage itself is wonderfully clean and welcoming, equipped with everything that you need for a relaxing holiday. The location is perfect to explore Cornwall from and the cottage is a cosy retreat to return back to at the end of a busy day. We loved it so much we are returning next year, Thank you so much.

We went back to Melbourne cottage this year just after Covid 19 allowed us. We felt totally happy going there knowing how well kept and clean the owners keep the cottage. Its in a wonderful location at the top of Boscastle village and just down from the coastal foot path. Its always feel like I am coming home when I stay there and always look forward to returning.

It’s an excellent well equipped and very comfortable space, and the outside sitting area gets the sun all day – we had breakfast and supper out there. Fab! Melbourne Cottage is in an excellent location a little distance from the busy tourist part of Boscastle, yet easily reachable. Less than 5 minutes from the coastal path and views far into the North Atlantic and less than 10 minutes walk from the untouristy local pub, the Napoleon – even quicker on the way home, as its then downhill!! Thanks so much Carole and Andy.
