Mr Savage September 2020
We had another very pleasant and comfortable week at Little Bokelly. There were 2 relatively minor issues:-
The approach drive has deteriorated further since our previous visits. The potholes are quite severe, and the underside of our car was sometimes brushing against the high central part of the drive.
The bolts on the patio door are very stiff and out of alignment - to the point of being unusable in the case of the lower one. This gave us some concerns about security. It was disappointing to see that this problem had not been fixed, since we reported it on our previous visit.
Having said this, we still love Little Bokelly, and plan to return.

A beautifully decorated cottage, spacious and very comfortable in a quiet location, convenient for exploring north Cornwall. The welcome gift from the owners was a lovely surprise. Also milk, coffee and tea in the kitchen was very much appreciated after our long journey. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at Little Bokelly and would be happy to recommended it to others.
Mrs Bowman January 2020
Warm in winter, well equipped, homely, quiet cottage with convenient access to places of interest via the A39. Good base for touring North Cornwall.
Mrs Dawes September 2019
We did enjoy our stay it is a very nice cottage in a quiet rural area.
Mrs Radford September 2019
We have just spent a week at Little Bokelly and it was absolutely lovely. We would definitely recommend this peaceful, clean and comfortable cottage. It was an absolute joy to return each day and enjoy the patio with a glass of wine while all we could hear was birdsong and all we could see was countryside. Bliss. We will definitely return.

A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting and in such a great location.
Mr Pickett June 2019
Very enjoyable stay in this peaceful and very well presented property. The location is good because it is rural but near to main road. Very close to a number of beautiful beaches, walks etc. One week was not long enough to fully explore. Excellent check in and booking process. Would definitely like to return
Mrs Williams August 2018
A lovely, cosy cottage, in a great location. The welcome gift from the owners was much appreciated after the journey to get there.
Mrs Lloyd July 2018
This is a beautifully appointed cottage in a peaceful and private location near to some of the best coastline Cornwall has to offer. With the Camel trail, coastal paths and stunning beaches nearby, we were never short of something to do without needing to travel far. The cottage is a very comfortable conversion, spotlessly clean and a delightful place to relax and spend time in. We enjoyed two exceptionally good meals out, the first at the St Kew Inn and the second at St Tudy Inn; both come highly recommended. We enjoyed a fantastic holiday at Little Bokelly.

A very enjoyable stay. Very relaxing place to stay in the middle of countryside.
Mr Savage April 2017
A comfortable and well-equipped cottage in a good location. However was not as peaceful as expected owing to noisy landscaping work in the owners adjacent garden.

Thanks for reviewing Little Bokelly - we were pleased you'd found the cottage comfortable but sorry you experienced some noise disturbance during your visit. The owner was so upset and sorry to hear this but we're very glad that we have been able to discuss this with you directly and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Bryony, Customer Support

Little Bokelly provides a perfect home for either a couple or a small family looking for a quiet restful holiday in North Cornwall. Children are almost spoilt by the selection of books videos and bath time toys available. Nearby these are several excellent eateries including the Red Lion at Key Highway which is always excellent. For the rest of the day there are lovely beeches and interesting walks to explore.

Wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting with extra special welcoming touches.
Mrs Lewis August 2016
The welcome from the housekeeper was warm and we really enjoyed our visit.
Prof Siveter June 2016
Little Bokelly was a little Gem. Cosy, comfortable, well appointed and in a lovely rural setting, we could not have wished for a a more in a holiday rental property. The house keeper was also very helpful. All-in-all a very enjoyable stay. Thoroughly recommendable.
Mrs Cunningham May 2016
A great location for exploring the nearby stretch of coast in the day and having a peaceful base to return to in the evening.
Dr Mumford April 2016
Little Bokelly provides a perfect spot for a relaxing holiday, the house is so comfortable and so well equipped, it could not be bettered. The location is great for visiting a wide variety of interesting places and eateries.
Mrs Jones October 2015
It was fab to return to the cottage log burner after our days out - toasted marshamallows = yummy! - perfect on chilly autumn evenings.
Mrs Szczebiot September 2015
This is a unique cottage which we would very much like to experience again in the future. One of it's main selling points is the outlook over the surrounding fields and consequent tranquillity.
Mrs McKie August 2015
Beautifully presented, well equipped, welcoming and friendly. The 2nd bedroom was set up thoughtfully with lots of books and puzzles suitable for my 5 year old son, and a gift too. Delicious homemade cake, eggs, milk, fresh herbs and fresh flowers greeted us on arrival. Altogether a perfect base to explore the area.
Mrs Derry July 2015
Little Bokelly is a comfortable, clean and well-equipped cottage. There are views of open countryside from the patio, garden and most of the windows. There is a lovely private garden to sit in and, although in a peaceful location, it is not too far from the main road which gives easy access to all areas of Cornwall.
Miss Webb March 2015
Brilliant, well equipped cottage, in a peaceful location. Lin, the housekeeper, was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend a holiday in this property.
Mrs Cheadle September 2014
Would recommend Little Bokelly to friends and neighbours.
Mr Clark August 2014
Little Bokelly is a lovely, well equipped cottage which is furnished to a very high standard and everything was fresh and clean. The private parking, garden and patio is a rare find in holiday cottages and a real bonus. Privacy and peace and quiet ensured. We had high expectations and found exactly what we were hoping to find. We hope to return as soon as possible.
Mr Birt July 2014
A beautifully appointed cottage in an ideal location.
Ms Chamier May 2014
I think this is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. Everything was perfect; very well equipped, lovely decor, pretty furnishings and everything worked! We were welcomed with fresh eggs, flowers and a cake. What more could we have asked for?
Mrs Martin April 2014
A lovely cottage that exceeded our expectations! The welcoming chocolate cake was delicious and a perfect start to a great week. The cottage was well equipped and suited the three of us perfectly.
The cottage is located far enough away from the crowds of tourists but close enough to be able to get out and see a great deal of the coast without too much driving effort.
We have already recommended the cottage to several people!
Dr Pollock March 2014
Really attractive cottage, beautifully appointed in a peaceful location near lots of spectacular scenery. Ideal for two couples or small family.
Mrs Turner May 2013
Beautiful cottage inside and out.
Mr Doward March 2013
A beautiful farm cottage, with modern touches. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will be back, many times. With being around a farm area, the chickens, horses and a few playful dogs were a pleasant distraction on our holiday.
Good or bad, we publish all the reviews left by the guests who have stayed in this cottage, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines.
