The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, has a nice patio with great views over Boscastle and is in an excellent location, just a short walk from the village, harbour, pubs and restaurants. We used the house as a base for walking the coast path and took buses, which stop nearby, to the start or from the finish points each day. For those who have a dog or who just like early morning or late evening walks (with sunsets over the sea) this is a perfect place; two minutes walk up the road there is a beautiful open space (Forrabury Stitches) with common land stretching to the cliffs and the coast path and a stunning walk down to Boscastle Harbour.
Fantastic cottage in a great position
Just returned from a week in Melbourne Cottage and thoroughly recommend this very well appointed and cosy holiday home.
The cottage is in a great position for the top of Boscastle and particularly access to The Stitches and Willapark through the beautiful Forrabury Church grounds. The harbour is only a few minutes walk downhill – and a few more minutes back uphill!
A great little gem of a cottage.
Lovely cottage in a beautiful village
We had a lovely week at boscastle. Lovely comfortable cottage with everything you would need. Spotlessly clean. Lovely village and walks. The dog loved it. Visited some lovely coastal villages. Hope to go back.
Beautiful cottage, a real home from home
Lovely dog friendly cottage with secure garden and amazing views over Boscastle village. It is equipped and stocked with absolutely everything you could need and it was a nice touch to find a pint of milk in the fridge (along with some other treats – thank you very much!) when we arrived after a long journey. It is beautifully decorated inside and out, and the beds are comfortable. Boscastle harbour is beautiful with some great dog friendly pubs and places to eat. We can thoroughly recommend the Napolean for great food and a warm welcome. We look forward to coming back to Melbourne Cottage and Boscastle in the near future.
A wonderful week
We had a wonderful week in a really beautiful environment. The Cottage is so lovely, homely, tastefully furnished, und exquisite equipped. In my language: unglaublich schön. Thanks to Andrew and Carole for their kindness and warm welcome.
