We loved staying in the cottage, it's a great spot in Boscastle and ideal for walking out to the coastal path. The shelves of books were very well-received and in the periods when the weather wasn't as good we loved sitting in the lounge reading!

All of Captains Retreat was fabulous, very cosy and comfortable. A real place to get away from it all, although we were on a walking weekend , we could have moved in. Would recommend for a real get away. Lovely location and perfect for our Southwest Coast path walking we are completing later this year. Thanks so much to Maggi and her housekeeping team for a great place to stay....
