Beautiful atmospheric Cottage, so charming.

We are really glad we decided to stay at Lowen cottage, and in Boscastle; we had brilliant time. The cottage is really well-equipped, welcoming, characterful and just the right size. The beds were comfortable, shower hot and fast, garden idyllic and private and the view from the stable door and seat on the balcony was glorious. Our Dachshund thought she was king of the castle up there! . Dunn Street was beautifully quiet and people (and cats) were really friendly. Boscastle is simply stunning and there are so many fantastic restaurants, cafes and walks. It’s a quiet jewel in Cornwall’s crown and long may that remain. We have never holidayed in England in the summer but we are truly glad we did. Thank you, classic cottages for everything. Lowen and Boscastle enchanted us! We will be back!

We're so delighted that you enjoyed the views and the gardens. It's a shame you had trouble parking - Lowen Cottage doesn't have a private space but there is usually space on the road opposite or in the public car park, which is 500 yards away. The bed in the second bedroom is accessed from one side, as detailed in our description, making the most of the space in this gorgeous traditional cottage. Tressa, Customer Support

We booked Lowen Cottage as a base for a walking holiday in North Cornwall with our dog. Boscastle proved to be a great base for walks out the door as well as using the local bus to access other parts of the spectacular coast path. The cottage was a real winner to return to as it was thoughtfully equipped for self catering and very comfortable resulting in great rest and sleep. Some cottages feel like there's penny pinching going on but not this one.

Had the most wonderful holiday there. Would definitely stay there again.

June 2018

Fantastic location, stunning views, cosy well equipped cottage. Friendly neighbours increased the charm. Will be back.

October 2017

Loved this cottage !!! So much charm and attention to detail wrt ones needs. The garden is also an added bonus as it's enclosed and we were happy to leave our doggy wonder and come in when she wanted. I feel it's the perfect spot, yes an uphill walk back from the main part of Boscastle but hey....works the wine off. The neighbour is brilland and very friendly.....most definitely will return

Simply love Boscastle there are so many walks to take in all directions and the village itself is wonderful.

So nice to have secure garden and we spent a lot of time outside enjoying the gorgeous weather!

Lovely cosy cottage with much attention to detail. Fully equipped with everything you could need for your stay.

My dog thoroughly enjoyed the cottage and location; plenty of other dogs and humans to make friends with! A very sociable holiday with friendly locals and visitors alike. Even the local builder said good morning when we went out!

The cottage was perfect! Comfortable, fully equipped , beautifully decorated and although up a steep hill, was in a prime location to the village, ( the hill was welcome after all of the lovely food and cream teas!)

January 2015

This is a lovely little cottage tucked away in the steep and narrow lanes of Boscastle. It has been decorated and furnished with thought and care and has good quality fittings. It has a very comfortable bed, a log-burning stove and a good shower and bath. There are several places to eat within walking distance and there is easy access to the coastal path including St Arthur's mythical castle at Tintagel.

January 2015

A lovely cosy and well equipped cottage with a welcome log burner ,just right for a relaxing winter break. The surrounding area is beautiful, there are plenty of places to go and the coastal walks with spectacular views are many.

We were blessed with the glorious September weather, too, but would have enjoyed it, whatever the weather It totally lived up to our expectations, particularly the enclosed garden. We will definitely return - thank you!!!

We had a wonderful time at Lowen Cottage. It is beautifully decorated, lovely and cosy and the graden is great for eating breakfast or having a BBQ. The location is fantastic, it is only a short walk from the village where there are lots of lovely pubs and cafes. We really enjoyed our stay and were very sad to leave.

May 2014

Fab, truly beautiful... Wish I could have taken the cottage home with me. Beautiful surroundings. Not much more to say ... Loved it

May 2014

Lovely cottage. Well suited for walking and getting around Cornwall.

May 2014

An absolutely beautiful, clean, and homely cottage which left us relaxed and comfortable for the duration we spent in it. The house is full of decent quality, high-end branded utilities for use. Lovely garden views across the valley with the odd visit from a friendly local cat (Smokey, his actual name we found out). We will definitely will be going back, hopefully soon.

April 2014

A delightful, homely cottage that provides guests with a real taste of Cornwall. Beautifully furnished with a modern twist with lovely extra touches that make the stay extra special.

March 2014

We had a wonderful holiday in this excellent cottage. There were unexpected extras which were lovely, including the provision of dog bowls for our pet. All of our expectations and more were met.

December 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Lowen cottage. It was well situated halfway up the hill which allowed us to walk down to the harbour or up to the Napolean pub at the top of the hill.

The accomodation was excellent especially the beds which were very comfortable.

October 2013

The cottage was beautifully appointed, a real home from home. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and we had a wonderful week, returning home, relaxed, refreshed, and reminded of what a wonderful place Boscastle is.
