“A lovely seaside stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

A wonderful stay in a delightful setting. Faye & Jack welcomed us with coffee and cake and were most considerate and helpful throughout our stay. The view of the harbour from our bedroom window was a treat - and the sun even shone most days.The breakfast was perfectly made to order and the seating such that all guests could chat together and compare notes from each day was really appreciated. We thoroughly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: We were given the front room, but any room would still have the great views.

Staying at Pencarmol is a unique experience. We were greeted by our hosts Faye & Jack who welcomed us into their guesthouse with a pot of tea and some delicious cake.
The accommodation is spacious and comfortable with bags of character and our room had a view of the harbour and surrounding hills. Our stay was topped off with glorious sunshine. If you like Boscastle, you owe it to yourself to stay here.
Nice people, nice place. Recommended.

Situated at the harbour end of the village, Pencarmol is a fabulous B&B with welcoming and friendly hosts. Jack and Faye instantly made us welcome upon our arrival with a cup of tea and a huge slice of chocolate cake. The room was brilliant, decked out in wood so that one feels like they are in a ship's cabin. Breakfast was also superb. The views of the harbour are fantastic from Pencarmol and we would thoroughly recommend it as a great place to stay.

Fabulous setting right at head of harbour. Comfortable rooms, big breakfasts, friendly owners and best of all (and rare in Boscastle) they take dogs! What more could you want! Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: All have fab views

We wanted a quiet walking holiday on the North Cornish coast, near to Tintagel and found this on the web. We arrived to be met by the delightful hosts (Jack and Faye) with a welcome cup of tea. The B&B is in a charming ancient harbour cottage, right at the end of the road in Boscastle, and the rooms are just what we wanted - and just what you would expect from a Listed house in a Cornish fishing village. Rooms a good size and comfortable, and the breakfasts - Gourmet Quality - all locally sourced food - delicious sausage, egg, bacon, mushrooms and as much tea and toast as you could cope with. We spent the week walking the coast, south to Tintagel and back, and north to Crackington Haven (back by bus!) - but didn't need any lunch after Jack's SERIOUS breakfast.
Boscastle itself is delightful and has several very good pubs and a fine restaurant (the Riverside).
If and when we go back to Cornwall - we will definitely stay at Pencarmol.
Thoroughly recommended!

Room Tip: See if you can get the "family room" at the front (which we had as a couple for the week...

We managed to book a room at very short notice. A great welcome was received from Jack and Faye, into their lovely cosy B&B. Our room overlooked the harbour to the front and the coastal path and cliffs from the side window. The location is absolutely beautiful, right at the tip of Boscastle. Breakfast was yummy and filling. We will definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

We were walking the South West Coast Path in July 2011 and stopped here for 2 nights. Ideal location right on the path. Comfortable and friendly and handy for the village restaurants.
