“A cosy and quirky cottage in a wonderful coastal village”
Reviewed 17 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We absolutely loved our stay at Linhay with our dogs. This is a beautiful, cosy cottage with oodles of history and interesting original features including a granite salting trough, a smugglers' peephole and a beautiful old doorway. In addition to its period charms, the cottage is very well equipped and easy to keep clean, a fact that was especially welcome during a stormy week in February! It was lovely to explore Boscastle and the nearby coast in all weathers, and then come back and curl up in front of the wood burner on a windy evening.

The location of the cottage, jostling for position with other historical buildings on a steep, narrow street, means that you can begin your exploration of historical Boscastle just by looking out of the window. After that, it's a pleasure to step outside the door and take a stroll around the village and harbour.

Parking was no problem - there are a few parking spaces just a few yards up the hill from the cottage, and we always managed to find a space there. The cottage's owner was always on hand if we needed anything.

All in all, I can't recommend this cottage highly enough and I'll definitely be staying there again.
