“Little Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2011

Having visited and stayed in Boscastle many times at several establishments we decided to have a change and decided to give the Valency B&B a try, what a very wise choice! We stayed in the Four Poster Room for 3 nights just after Easter and can honestly say this is by far the best B&B we have stayed in. The rooms are excellent, the breakfast of the highest standard, there is a cottage garden patio for relaxing in the sun and free car parking (a very rare commodity in Boscastle). The biggest assets are the owners John & Denise who greeted us on our arrival with coffee on the patio and who cannot do enough for you, they make you feel like you are at home and almost one of the family! So if you are thinking of staying in the Boscastle area then I would strongly recommend the Valency, it really is a little gem.

If you are considering visiting this area of Cornwall you will not find better accommodation than the Valency.
From the moment you arrive until the moment you leave you will receive a first class service.
John and Denise are so welcoming and provide everything for an extremely comfortable stay.
The accommodation is superb, the freshly cooked breakfasts will set you up for a days exploring of the Cornish coastlines.
I have stayed in many establishments around the world and without doubt the Valency rates very highly indeed.

Thank you to Denise and John who made our weekend break very enjoyable and comfortable from the minute we arrived at Valency in the early hours of Saturday morning and then they were still there to greet us with a smile, we were well impressed, the Valency Bed and Breakfast is situated about 5mins from the local pub and Boscastle it’s self, after we arrived we did not need the car because as soon as you go out of the Valency your in the beautiful walks, we had a lovely room just as it was on the photo on the web page and in the morning we had a really good choice of breakfast the cooked breakfast was brilliant especially the hogs pudding - well recommended. Denise and John were giving us loads of information, which again was useful as we were there for the walks and scenery, if you’re a cyclist like myself I would recommend this area as it is full of hills and I mean hills remember Boscastle is in a valley if you go in on a bike you’ve got to go back out on a bike (unless you cheat).
Boscastle was brilliant, Valency was absolutely brilliant and the weekend break was brilliant pity we had to come away so soon but I am sure I will be back again.
A very big Thank you to Denise and John for all they had done for us to make the weekend so good and I wish them both all the very best for the future.

John and Denise are true B&B legends. Everything about our stay was wonderful and homely and the extra mile seemed no trouble at all. Both were very helpful with local knowledge. We can't wait to return to relive the fantastic break away. Oh and not forgetting the superb locally sourced breakfasts. Would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you for the good times.

Denise & John gave us a very warm welcome.
Extremely high standard bedrooms. They clearly have put a great deal of thought into providing everything you may need that ensures a remarkable break. Excellent breakfasts cooked to order with home made bread.
An excellent base for exploring one of the few remaining unspoilt harbour villages in Cornwall with beautiful scenic coastal walks (and great pubs, especially the Napoleon Inn).
The Valency B&B exceeds it's four gold star rating, well worthy of five stars.
We would love to stay again.

Valency was a fantastic find. Beautiful bedrooms, extremely clean, the owners very friendly and helpful. As soon as we arrived they popped out and helped us with our bags. Most of all the breakfast was perfectly cooked, generous portions, fresh pastries, fruit smoothies, homemade jam etc. I don't think a top notch London hotel could beat the service we got here.
Not one complaint and I am seriously fussy.
