Beautiful cottage in a lovely location

5.0 rating

We have stayed twice in this cottage now and have booked to go back again. It’s clean, well equipped and very homely. The garden is a little sun trap, offering peace and quiet. It’s a 10 minute walk down hill to the harbour where there is cafe’s, shop’s and a couple of pubs. A 10 minute walk across the village takes you to the napoleon pub, friendly staff and good food. Plenty of great walks right on the doorstep and a great base to explore North Cornwall. Looking forward to going back.

Cornish Spring Break

5.0 rating

The cottage is outstanding, contemporary with all the amenities. It was clean and well maintained. We would have appreciated being told there was a starter pack in the cottage as we brought a lot of unnecessary things with us and the only thing missing (we are being really picky) would have been a melamine salad bowl and servers as we were very conscious of not dropping glasses and breakables outside when having a barbeque. The garden was a little sun trap and best of all entirely gated so the dog could not get out. Jumble had a wonderful time chasing rabbits and visiting the Napoleon Inn – walkable distance! Your neighbours were very friendly too, thank you Andy and Carole for a most welcome break.

Lovely, comfortable cottage; clean, very well equipped and stocked. Convenient parking. I would happily recommend Melbourne Cottage, and look forward to another holiday based there.

Homely, comfortable and charming

5.0 rating

This is a lovely, cosy, dog friendly cottage in a superb position, ideal for exploring this part of Cornwall, with beautiful walks from the doorstep. Melbourne Cottage is extremely well equipped and has the added benefit of the internet which we found a huge asset.
The Napoleon Inn is only a few minutes away, and offers good beer and reasonably priced food, or The Cobwebs in the main village, about a ten minute walk away, is an excellent pub too. Both pubs are dog friendly.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week here, and have already booked to go back next Easter.

Best place to stay in 30 years in Boscastle

5.0 rating

We have been staying on and off in Boscastle for over 30 years. Always thought that owners do not appreciate the needs of a traveller who has driven for many an hour and arrives rather tired. The owners of this cottage have gone out of their way to ensure that your arrival is met with the small things which really make a difference. The cottage is comfortable and furnished to a high standard. The location is perfect for those wishing to walk the dog and also to walk into the village or to the pub!
