November 2017

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.


September 2017

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


May 2017

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!


April 2017

A treat to stay in a cosy Cottage in a prime location for everything Boscastle has to offer.

The location and views were stunning. overall a lovely cottage in Boscastle Harbour.


October 2016

Delightful cottage in wonderful location. Cosy, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean


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.


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.

Lovely house in an amazing location. Very well equipped, clean and comfortable.


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


July 2015

Thoroughly recommend this place to anyone .


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.


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!


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.


August 2014

A wonderful book collection for all ages and tastes, music and games to borrow during our stay. Lovely neighbours in adjoining cottages.


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.


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.


October 2013

We really enjoyed our stay in Boscastle. Very cosy, nice cottage with all necessary comfort. We'll come back!


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.


August 2013

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay in the house, I thoroughly recommend it.
