The location and views were stunning. We regularly holiday in Boscastle and this has been one of the better houses to stay. From the description, i thought there might be a shower cubicle in both bathrooms, but the one there was proved to be large and easy to use. Sitting room chairs were very comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. Everything was of good quality.

Captains Retreat was one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in, for cleanliness, decor, furnishings, comfort and equipment, everything you could possibly need was there. It was so cosy, just like home from home and also in a beautiful position with all amenities you need in the village. We shall definitely recommend this cottage to our friends and will visit it again for another holiday. Plus a very nice welcome pack, best we've ever been left.

Stunning and very comfortable/homely house in the heart of everything yet still very quiet, which keeps us returning year after year!

The photos do not do justice to this property. It is finished to a very high standard offering all the home comforts needed. Location is excellent on the harbour. A fabulous place to stay!

Mrs Tallon October 2016
Delightful cottage in wonderful location. Cosy, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean
Ms Revelle September 2016
The house was well equipped with lovely furnishings and décor and an overall high standard of renovation of the property was evident in every room. It was spotlessly clean, quirky and interesting and generally a very pleasant place to be. Lots of books, stunning and romantic location with sea, coastal paths, gift shops, museum and places to eat all on the doorstep. The best ice cream in the world is sold just a few feet away :-) We spent a lovely week there and would happily stay again.
Mr Sugden April 2016
The property was very welcoming warm and cosy. The whole family enjoyed it. Boscastle was tranquil and interesting with walks up to cliffs and harbour.

Mrs Daulby August 2015
When we saw where the position of Captains Retreat was for ourselves we were amazed, it was stunning. My husband and I liked the authentic feel of the house (although our daughters prefer a more modern feel) the bedrooms were lovely
Ms Skinner July 2015
Thoroughly recommend this place to anyone .
Mrs Rogman April 2015
A gorgeous place to stay. House is beautiful in a wonderful location. This is our 5th visit to the Captain's Retreat and we look forward to returning again soon.
Mr Rosam December 2014
Everything was just right, part of the village yet higher and set- back so that it felt private. A view of the harbour added to the tranquility that a winter holiday provides. The location of The Cobweb was perfect - many a pint and delicious supper were enjoyed there! Maggie and David, who happened to be at home next door for our week, were welcoming, knowledgable and helpful. Hoping to spend Christmas there next time!
Ms Hoeksema September 2014
Perfect cottage, perfect location. Decor is beautiful and stylish, and we felt at home from the minute we stepped inside. Many walks from the front door, including the coastal path. The river was in front of the house, its gurgling the perfect accompaniment to a good nights sleep.
Mrs Hooper August 2014
A wonderful book collection for all ages and tastes, music and games to borrow during our stay. Lovely neighbours in adjoining cottages.
Mrs Abell August 2014
Captain's Retreat is a beautiful property in a fantastic location. It's a real home from home, with everything we needed. There is even an excellent range of books and DVDs, and we could have done with a rainy day to make the most of these! Lots of lovely walks from the front door meant we didn't need to use the car every day. Very convenient being across the bridge from the Harbour Light cafe which does excellent snacks, lunches and cream teas. We would definitely like to return one day.
Mr Taylor June 2014
The captains retreat is a really lovely place to stay , so comfortable, well equipped and right in the heart of beautiful Boscastle. We felt truly lucky to have found it.
Mrs Van Driessen October 2013
We really enjoyed our stay in Boscastle. Very cosy, nice cottage with all necessary comfort. We'll come back!
Ms Maund October 2013
Captain's Retreat's location is fantastic, in the middle of everything but set back just enough for privacy. Two separate full size bathrooms on two different floors is a big bonus, as is the parking space right outside. It's full of character, homely and warm, we've just stayed for the fourth year running and will definitely be back next year.
Mr Blair August 2013
We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in the house, I thoroughly recommend it.
