Boak House
Ranked #1 of 7 Coverack B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 August 2012

The most exceptional B&B and warm, friendly attentative Bridget made our stay. My boyfriend whisked me off for a night away for a birthday treat and I have to say Boak House was one of the most exceptional B&B's I have had the pleasure to stay in (and I've stayed in a few!!) The views are stunning, the house is beautifully decorated and the breakfast was delicious. My chap and I although compleatly 'Coveracked!!' would highly recommend this little gem to anyone visiting Cornwall. Big thank you Bridget, Malibu, Paris & Beluga x

This is a one off as a B&B. You will be very lucky to find another like it! We arrived after a long walk and were immediately welcomed by Bridget who quickly revived us by delivering a tray of canapes and G&Ts to our room. We stayed in Paris room which has amazing views of the harbour. The room is very comfortable. Bridget is fantastic, so keen to make you feel welcome. She asked if we would like to join her and some family + friends for a second G&T in the conservatory before we headed into the village for dinner. Breakfast is great and when we couldn't quite manage the whole Cornish fry up Bridget insisted that she bake some baguettes to give us sausage sandwiches for lunch that day. If you are in the area make sure you stay here, it is a real gem.

Room Tip: Go for the sea views

We've done quite a few B&B stays in the UK and elsewhere over the years. We thoroughly enjoyed Bridget's hospitality and Boak house. Her breakfasts were superb and fueled us easily until the pre-supper gin and tonics! The views from the conservatory are stunning. Our room was clean and very comfortable. We wished we could have stayed longer. Bridget is also very well connected to the local community and its eclectic cast of characters who drop by for a visit, a chat and some great storytelling, making it a memorable stay indeed. If you're visiting the Cornish coast this is the place to stay!

Bridget is the best hostess - she really wants to make you welcome and happy. The room was lovely. Boak house is full of character, very clean and the breakfast was excellent. I did not want to leave.

Boak House has a wonderful position with stunning sea views. The owner was wonderfully welcoming and the room was elegant and stylish. Breakfast in the conservatory, looking out over the bay, was memorable. We wished we could stay longer, and hope to return to Boak House. Wonderful value.

Boak House is THE place to stay if you are contemplating a trip to this beautiful part of the Cornish coast. The wonderful owner Bridget, made us feel very much at home and the complementary Gin and Tonics in the conservatory overlooking the harbour was an inspired touch. All the rooms have a sea view and are simply but tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. Breakfast the next morning was a delight especially as the sun had decided to shine and the choice of organic cereals/fruits/nuts was impressive. The only downside to our stay was that we had to leave!!! but we will be going back again soon.

For anyone reading this review, do not hesitate, book now for the best B&B in the UK. You won't regret it.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent

This is the cream of B&B's. The best I've ever stayed in and the hospitality was the icing on the cake.

Idyllic location, lovely rooms, probably the best Cornish Breakfast you'll eat and Bridget, the warmest, friendliest and welcoming hostess you could wish for.

I will definitely come back to Coverack and there's only one
Place I'd stay. 5*****
