Melbourne Cottage is part of a conversion of an early 1900’s coach house. Whilst being fully equipped and modernised it has retained a lot of its original features and still has that ‘olde worlde’ charm. The original front door complete with stained glass inserts and exposed wooden beams in the upstairs rooms all add to its unique character. Downstairs is the kitchen which has a dish washer, washing machine, separate oven and hob. The living room has leather sofas and smart TV with hard drive for recording. There is a portable bluetooth speaker and speaker for ipod and iphone charging. The separate dining room has a table and chairs big enough to sit 6. Off the hall is a separate loo.

Upstairs are the double bedroom and twin bedroom along with the bathroom which has a loo, freestanding bath and separate walk in shower.

The courtyard garden, with its lovely views across the village, is a real sun trap. It has table, chairs, parasol and a bbq.

About the local area

Melbourne Cottage is found conveniently right in the middle of Boscastle! It is located above the beautiful harbour and just beneath the ancient Forrabury Stitches, both of which are maintained by The National Trust. A few yards from the cottage is the South West Coast Path.

Boscastle has two amazing pubs, The Cobweb Inn and The Napoleon Inn. There is also a bar in The Wellington Hotel, restaurants and tea rooms, all within walking distance of the cottage.

Another great week spent at Melbourne Cottage. This cottage is very well appointed and comfortable. It is in a perfect position to enjoy a quiet break in fantastic Boscastle with easy access to Forrabury and The Stitches to then walk down to the end of the picturesque and unique harbour from where you can enjoy the excellent eating and drinking options of the village. The excellent Napoleon Inn is only 5 minutes (flat) walk away from the cottage too! Highly recommend.

Melbourne Cottage is the most delightful cottage that we have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Situated in the quaint harbour village of Boscastle, the view from the front garden is breathtaking. The cottage itself is wonderfully clean and welcoming, equipped with everything that you need for a relaxing holiday. The location is perfect to explore Cornwall from and the cottage is a cosy retreat to return back to at the end of a busy day. We loved it so much we are returning next year, Thank you so much.

We went back to Melbourne cottage this year just after Covid 19 allowed us. We felt totally happy going there knowing how well kept and clean the owners keep the cottage. Its in a wonderful location at the top of Boscastle village and just down from the coastal foot path. Its always feel like I am coming home when I stay there and always look forward to returning.


It’s an excellent well equipped and very comfortable space, and the outside sitting area gets the sun all day – we had breakfast and supper out there. Fab! Melbourne Cottage is in an excellent location a little distance from the busy tourist part of Boscastle, yet easily reachable. Less than 5 minutes from the coastal path and views far into the North Atlantic and less than 10 minutes walk from the untouristy local pub, the Napoleon – even quicker on the way home, as its then downhill!! Thanks so much Carole and Andy.
