We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Boat House. The location was superb. It was peaceful and very relaxing watching life on the river.

Wonderful house. Wonderful location. Never once tired of looking at the views from the conservatory and our bedroom windows. Virtually every need thought of. High standard of China kitchenware towels etc. A call from the owner Sandy was much appreciated and 2 bottles of wine milk squash and both types of mineral water were provided for our arrival. Very thoughtful. Always something happening on the River Tamar. Great place to unwind relax and chill out. Would not hesitate to recommend 5*

A wonderful two weeks at The Boat House. We loved watching the activity on the river and the beautiful sunsets. Location and comfort is ideal for a peaceful, relaxing time. We are all missing the lovely views.

The Boat House is an Excellent place to stay, comfortable, well equipped with gorgeous views of the Tamar river & surrounding countryside. My family & I loved every minute we stayed there.

Super property in a fantastic location. Crabbing or fishing right off the patio. Nice quiet little village off the beaten track.

The Boat House is a relaxing, peaceful place to stay with amazing views. The house is furnished to a high standard and comfortable. The owner has basically thought of everything with regards to equipment. We have missed the view of the river since we’ve arrived home.

My husband and I spent a wonderful two weeks at the boathouse to Celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary. Everything was perfect for a relaxing time just sitting watching the river the yachts and bird life, we even saw a seal which really made our day. Everything was provided to make for an awesome holiday. We will most definitely be booking again.

I can't imagine anyone not loving the Boathouse. Lovely big home with beautiful views. Total chill out zone.

The Boathouse was the best cottage we have stayed in, and we have stayed in quite a few!! The location and view's were spectacular. I took things with me that other cottage's have lacked, but didn't need to. The Boathouse is home from home. The beds and lounge furniture were extremely comfortable. I love the coffee table and want one!!! We will be rebooking again. Many Thanks Sandy and Classic cottages and also who ever cleans the cottage, it is immaculately clean. Thank you. Kathy

Thank you both so much for sharing your thoughts on The Boathouse. It sounds like you had an amazing time! We're looking forward to welcoming you back in the summer. Julie, Customer Support

Amazing property!

A stunning house in a stunning location. So relaxing and enjoyable.

This is truly wonderful property in the most amazing location. No need to go out for the day as chilling in the garden or conservatory overlooking the Tamar River is relaxing and peaceful. We are definitely going to return and have already booked for 2023. Thank you to the owner Sandy for sharing this very special gem in Cornwall.

The position of the Boat House is quite extraordinary, it’s worth spending time just sitting watching the constantly changing sky and river. And seeing dawn break in a mist is spectacular.

The Boat House is a beautiful and well equipped place to stay in. The owner has put a lot of thought into providing a comfortable and relaxing place to stay; especially welcome with the weather we had. The conservatory is a real bonus and a great place to sit and watch the river. It was very atmospheric sitting in there with the wind howling and the rain beating down!!!

Fabulous views of the ever changing Tamar , a homely and welcoming ,get away from it all .

The Boat House is in a stunning position located right on the estuary. Certainly the conservatory promotes the ambiance of this cottage. Within the building you have everything you need and comfort must be mentioned. The sofas and beds were so comfortable. This must be one of the first holidays when we arrived and it was lovely and warm inside. How often have we been welcomed and the building is cold. The owners ensure your happy with a phone call during your stay and are lovely. We were greeted with a surprise on the kitchen table. The property is clean and Covid support in place. QR code for track and trace on entry and a well explained sheet on staying safe and how looking after the cottage during the stay and departure. Obviously many ornaments have had to be removed, but the feel of warmth and welcome still remains. Finally, if you use Wi-Fi a lot, bear in mind that streaming is not possible. We tried using the service but to no avail and in fact reverted back to our mobile service. The owner is aware of this. So we are now home and relaxed, happy. Thank-you to the owners of The Boathouse.

Fabulous property with amazing views. Every window is a pleasure to look out of. We spent a lot of time relaxing in the conservatory watching the boats and wildlife. We even had a few clear nights, great place for star gazing. Can't wait to book this property again, will definitely be returning.

We look forward to welcoming you back and should you need any assistance we are more than happy to help. Sarah, Customer Support

House is lovely and in an absolutely amazing location. The estuary view changes all the time with the tide, weather and time of day and we never tired of looking at it! We would definitely recommend. Missing it already! Brian & Anna

Loved this cottage so much that we have booked again for next year. Absolutely loved waking up to the views and the peacefulness of the location. Loved exploring the river on our Kayak and the kids loved crabbing off the side of the house!

We feel the bedroom with the ensuite should have bunk beds instead of a single bed to make it a family room and bedroom 3 should be a double only, rather than a double with a bunk bed above with a ladder. This would be much more comfortable. Also on your web site it states nearest pub is 1.5 miles away whereas in fact it is a 39 minute drive away, and only 1.5 miles if you can fly across water! This needs to be corrected a source it is misleading. Apart from these points we had a wonderful time in a lovely location, thank you! Paddle board lesson from Mel was brilliant
