A beautiful room with a stunning view. Beds were comfy and our room felt so fresh. We very much appreciated the books Bridget thoughtfully put in our room and our friends' rooms--interesting reading and made for good conversation over breakfast. And breakfast was superb. Absolutely fantastic breakfast. Bridget gets all the details right. We'd love to return again soon.

Boak house and Bridget made this a fantastic break in Coverack. I cannot praise it enough. Bridget's hospitality and the accommodation were second to none. We were treated as friends and I hope it stays that way. Will certainly be returning.

We spent four nights here - from the moment we entered Boak House we were made to feel welcome by Bridget - the hostess with the mostest! This was an enchanting setting overlooking Coverack Bay. The best 'full Cornish breakfast' ever. This holiday was a shear delight made even more enjoyable by Bridget's hospitality. If you want to stay in... More

Treated as old friends by Bridget when we arrived on our trek round the SWCP. We were offered immediate refreshment. Our room in this lovely old house looked out in 2 directions over the harbour and the village. It was well equipped, warm, quiet and comfortable with a huge bed. Our bathroom was not ensuite but just across the landing.... More

On arrival we were warmly greeted by Bridget (and the wagging tails of her friendly dogs!) We made the visit to celebrate a birthday and anniversary and stayed 2 nights. It is some time since a previous visit and have known Coverack for over 60 years through long deceased family connections. This village is rather special and have always felt... More

3 nights at Boak House was a wonderful experience. Bridget, our host gave us a wonderful welcome, great attention during our stay and great advice with local sights and eating establishments. Our room, Lowlands, had a great view to the south from the bed and the best view of the beach from the bathroom. Our evening/ late afternoon chats over... More

It feels like visiting friends! We had a wonderful relaxed overnight stay at the Boak House on our walk along the South West Coast Path. We were welcomed with some refreshing drinks in the conservatory where all the guests met. The house is nicely decorated with stunning views onto the sea and beach. Wonderful breakfast in the morning sun of... More

Mark and I have just come back from the most fantastic time in Coverack and Boak House made our stay the best ever break we've had in the UK. Bridget is a friendly, welcoming and relaxed host, and cooks a knockout full English breakfast too! We were welcomed with gin and tonics in the stunning conservatory overlooking Coverack Bay and...

We have been touring the West Country out of season booking accommodation as we go so this was a last minute booking. We were greeted like old friends to a cosy house. We were offered G&Ts, that's a first! As it was we stuck to tea which Bridget served with biscuits in the conservatory overlooking the bay. The room was... More
