Great holiday at cottage in Boscastle

Rated 5 out of 5

After asking if towels were supplied, I should have asked what wasn’t supplied. These people thought of everything and everything spotless. Fantastic retreat to base a Cornish holiday from. Very glad we chose this cottage to stay, everything was just great. Many thanks, Michelle and Barry Woodward

Fabulous cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5

We have just had a brilliant stay in Melbourne Cottage. We were so pleased to find it! It is very well equipped and tastefully decorated. It is in a beautiful quiet location near the top of Boscastle and has amazing views looking down into Boscastle from the front garden where you can sit and relax in the sun. It is also very close to the coastal footpath. The buses run from the top of the road into Bude and Truro so you can leave your car at the cottage! Would highly recommend as is one of the nicest cottages we have ever stayed in and would love to go back.

A gem of a place to stay

Rated 5 out of 5

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

Rated 5 out of 5

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.

Rated 5 out of 5

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.
