“Fabulous!”
Reviewed October 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We fell in love with this sweet cottage, the moment we walked through the door. It is a spacious, clean, 2 bedroom cottage, that we felt very at home in. Decor was lovely and the skylights were nice to bring in extra light. Very cozy and great for a romantic getaway, or to spend time with family & friends. Located wonderfully near to many of the surrounding museums, walking trails & coast line. We spent 6 wonderful days here and would highly recommend a stay at the Old Oil House!

“Superb Family Cottage”

Fantastic little cottage that was just perfect for our family stay (2 adults plus one 3 year old) in Cornwall. Clean, tidy, well presented and with everything you need for a self catering holiday. We loved it and would highly recommend both the cottage and Boscastle as a place to stay.

“Nice and comfortable in a great location within historic Boscastle”
Reviewed June 26, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Family friendly and tasty furnishings
Shame we never received a prior briefing detail as we came without towels which I understand are not included. We have stayed in over 15 different self catering places over past 8 weeks around UK and Europe and this is the first where some things are not included. The place could do with a good clean as sheets were used upon arrival.
Saying this we did enjoy the stay and loved the location and area

Management Response
29 Jun 2017
Thank you for your comments which have been noted.
We do not provide towels and this information was emailed to you directly with information & directions on 16th May, 4 weeks prior to your stay and is stated on TripAdvisor property details on the website.
Regarding the sheets, all linen is changed before every stay and the cleaners are very meticulous with the cleanliness of the property, however we have passed your comments to them to ensure their high standards are maintained.
We are pleased the issues did not detract from the enjoyment of your stay and hope to see you again in the future.
