“Easter Break”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Very clean, excellent hosts, good choice of breakfast, parking no problem. A place where one feels like a guest and not just a customer! Stayed over Easter period and would definately recommend without hesitation although the room we used had one major downside it adjoined the conservatory external door which other guests slammed shut each time they came and went, quite alarming when first heard and did make you jump somewhat! ( Minster) Very enjoyable would stay again.

Room Tip: Dont choose Minster as other guests let outer door slam shut on a regular basis. Really makes you ju...

We stayed in the Old Coach House whilst visiting relatives in the area. We were made very welcome and were even offered tea and some cake on our arrival. Rooms well appointed and comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent.

We were treated more as part of the family rather than as paying guests. We can strongly recommend the Old Coach House.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be to the same standard. The choice of the room would depend on the make up of you...

We stayed here last summer, lovely B&B in a beautiful area of Cornwall. Our stay was perfect; immaculate room and bathroom with beautiful views from the bedroom. Great breakfast and very friendly staff. Easy to park, just don't try and push a pushchair into the village center like I did...VERY steep!! Pretty faultless, would definitely go again.

The Old Coach House is the only B&B we stay at in Boscastle. This is because apart from the well appointed rooms, the great breakfasts and the friendly welcome from Jackie and Geoff, they really make you feel as if you are sharing their home with them and not just a paying guest. It's the little touches that make the Old Coach House stand out; from the complimentary toiletries in the bathrooms to the offer of fresh milk in your room and the opportunity to buy cold drinks and snacks (crisps and chocolate). Just when you think that Jackie and Geoff have thought of everything, they think of something else to make your stay even more comfortable.
Many thanks Jackie and Geoff, we look forward to seeing you again later this year.

A very nice B&B at the top of Boscastle. We were made most welcome by Jackie and family, with a cup of tea and slice of cake whilst the (excellent) breakfast orders and sign in papers were sorted.
The room we had was very clean, well equipped and comfortable with a superb, well stocked on-suite shower room and toilet, and we had access to Wifi - brilliant!
Our only gripes (and the reason it didn't get 5 stars) were: 1. Our room was downstairs and near to the dining area / rear car park access. We had come in very tired and wet and there seemed to be a lot of chidren running around in the dining area - probably something to do with it being Halloween and it IS a family run B&B, but this might have influenced my Wife and I had we known(nothing against kids, we just dont have children and aren't used to being around them).
2. Troublesome guests. As we were so close to the back door, we were woken by one of the guests coming in as if he owned the place in the wee hours, followed by his wife calling him - a bit faulty towers really and not the fault of Jackie.

To sum up, please stay here it's great especially if you are a family, however if you are a light sleeper think twice about staying in the Minster or Cambeak rooms - otherwise it's one of the best and we will definately come back

Room Tip: Minster or Cambeek rooms are downstairs and easily accessable, but can be a pain if late night guest...

In Late August/Early September my family from Canada was visiting me in England. As we travelled around Devon & Cornwall, we decided that it was time to find a place to stay when we reached Boscastle late in the afternoon. We asked a shop in town if they could recommend anywhere for the night but none of them were free. We literally stumbled upon "The Old Coach House" by accident but karma was on our side!
Jackie & her husband were fabulous! We were a group of 3 adults but only wanted one room. Jackie showed the room to my Dad & he took it on the spot!
She welcomed us with tea & scones with jam & cream in the lounge on a cold & foggy (typical English Summer day) and even booked us a reservation at the pub nearby - The Napolean Inn - for dinner. (which was also outstanding!)

The room was absolutely SPOTLESS! We could've eaten off the bathroom floor it was that clean! The house was cozy & warm and it felt like Home!

Breakfast the next morning was SPECTACULAR! And as someone who suffers from Coeliac disease, they were MORE than able to accommodate for my dietary requirements!

We travelled around the next weekend & did not plan to stay in Boscastle at The Old Coach House originally, but as our day progressed we decided to go back - 1 weekend later!

I will definitely be back as I've fallen in love with Boscastle and that definitely has to do with our experience with The Old Coach House!
