“Hard to beat this B & B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

My cousin and I stayed at Boscastle House, on the 10th June, in a beautiful twin room. This was our first B & B on our 2 week trip to the UK, and no other B & B came close to Boscastle House.
Sean made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The tea and scones on arrival were delicious and just what we needed after a long day of driving. Sean was able to give us many different tips for walks and sight seeing as well as some suggestions for dinner.
The breakfast the next morning was first class, we only wish we could have stayed longer.

My boyfriend and I stayed a night at Boscastle House at the end of a week-long VW campervan holiday around Cornwall. We were after a little bit of luxury following the camping, and this is exactly what we got. Sean was so friendly and welcoming on arrival, offering us tea and delicious homemade banana bread, and our room (Charlotte) was great - comfortable and roomy, with a lovely view.

A lot of thought and attention has gone into sustainability at Boscastle House. For example, breakfast (delicious and varied) is locally-sourced wherever possible and also fair trade, plus there are recycling bins in the bedrooms, and solar panels help to heat the showers.

Boscastle House is about a 20 minute walk from the harbour. Sean gave us some good recommendations for places to eat, and described how to get down there via the more scenic routes. We'd recommend the Wellington Hotel Long Bar for relaxed, above-average pub food.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay at Boscastle House again; it's exactly what we look for in a B&B. Thanks, Sean and Morwenna!

We traveled to Cornwall in the Spring of 2013 with our adult daughter. If you have hit upon this review, you have discovered the Grail of B&Bs. The town of Boscastle is beautiful, quaint and a great location for exploring this area of Cornwall including Tintagel, Port Isaac, the Eden Project, etc. The Inn is tremendous from the moment we were greeted by the owner Sean who offered us delicious fresh scones and tea. Nothing was left wanting in our large, well appointed beautiful rooms with scenic views all around (us in the Trelawny, our daughter in the Charlotte). The breakfasts were abundant and delicious. Fruits, homemade pastries and an outstanding cooked breakfast. The owners use organic locally sourced produce, an excellent start to our day.
The pièce de résistance was when we mentioned it was our daughter's birthday. She was greeted at the table with brownies and muffins, a lovely bouquet of roses and snacks to take for the day.At the end of our stay, when we reluctantly parted ways, we were laden with scones for our journey. The only drawback is that we are spoiled for our next B&B stays. The Boscastle House sets the gold standard for accommodation!

We stay in lots of b&bs and must say that Boscastle House is the best we've ever found.
Great location, beautifully contemporary designed spacious rooms, friendly, efficient and helpful service without any fuss and a spectacular breakfast.
These people have got it seriously right.
Thank you very much Sean & Morwenna. We'll be back!

Made a last minute plan over the May bank holiday and and found Boscastle House. Very happy that we did. The welcome we received upon arrival couldn't have been friendlier, along with the complimentary tea and homemade cake to make us feel at home. Everything from the room, to the host, to the breakfast and to the views were spectacular. We will be visiting Boscastle House again and cant rate this delightful B&B any higher. Ian and Felicity

Absolutely wonderful stay at Boscastle House. On arrival, we were offered a tea or coffee and a piece of cake - which was duly accepted, and was delicious! We were shown to our room, which was lovely - matched the photo on the website accurately. The whole place was decorated to a high standard & felt very homely. Everything was spotless. Comfy bed, great shower, and lots of magazines provided in the room. We had a fantastic big window with a lovely view and the room felt very light and airy. The food both days at breakfast was delicious! Nothing was too much during our stay either - I don't know if it was the owner who was there all weekend, but the guy who was there was so helpful. The hospitality was impeccable. I would most definitely recommend Boscastle House. 10 out of 10!

Room Tip: When you go up the stairs, the first room on the left is where we stayed - has a lovely big window s...

March 2013
We stayed at Boscastle House in March and it is one of the best bnb's we have stayed in. The hosts were great, Sean is very freindly and really helpful. The breakfast was outstnading, including great presentation. Our room was well presented, including those few extras only a few places include. We had a wonderful view and the property is well set up for guests, including a lovely garden. A bonus was there is plenty of car parking, which can be a challenge around the uk. All in all it was a lovely place to stay and great value. We would recommend to anyone.
