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.


Comfortable, cosy cottage in a good location – An Ideal Retreat!

Rated 5 out of 5

We spent Christmas in this lovely comfortable and warm cottage and had a wonderfully relaxed week. As we’ve stayed here previously, we knew that it was well equipped and contained all that we would need but it was a delightful bonus to be welcomed by the lights of a prettily decorated Christmas tree in the window. In addition, there was milk, biscuits and a bottle of very fine Cornish Cyder waiting for us. The cottage is well situated with close access to the coastal path that leads down to the harbour, pubs and shops. We have no hesitation in recommending Melbourne Cottage as an ideal place to stay in Boscastle.

What a lovely cottage! All our needs were catered for, even had a pint of milk, bottle of cider and cookies which was a lovely touch. Very tastefully decorated and very comfortable.

Lovely cottage

Rated 5 out of 5

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.
