Lovely cottage in a beautiful and tranquil village
By Nemanja Cvetkovic on 03-Sep-2018
We had a fantastic time at Tao Cottage - it was perfectly equipped for a family holiday with everything one needs at hand. It is in great condition and perfectly situated. Boscastle itself is a charming village, with friendly people and beautiful natural surroundings.

Lovely, spacious cottage in great location. Our first trip to this part of Cornwall and we all loved it. Cottage has everything you'd need including 4 TVs and now WiFi broadband - you'll need it as there's no mobile signal. Housekeeper is friendly and does a good job of cleaning cottage. Beds are very comfy. Wonderful location just a short walk from shops and pubs/cafes/restaurants and the harbour. Garden is lovely with great views over Jordan Valley - we particularly enjoyed watching birds at the feeder outside kitchen/diner. Only thing to watch is you have to park carefully on narrow road outside.

Lovely cottage, as described. Would recommend property to a friend & would have not hesitation about returning there ourselves.

I have been to Boscastle many times growing up and my mum used to go when she was a child too but this was the first time I had stayed in the village. We stayed at Tao for 3 nights and didn't want to come home! Kay has made the cottage feel like a home from home and you'll feel relaxed as soon as you walk in through the door. Its very clean and tidy through out and all the pictures & ornaments just give it that finishing touch. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen is great and well equiped and it was lovely with the sun coming through in the morning and the view is amazing. We didnt meet Colin the badger who lives in the garden but will certainly look out for him next time we stay. We managed to park the car near to the cottage, the road is narrow so as long as you put your mirrors in then there's no problem. The walk down the hill is about 3 minutes, but 5-10 minutes back up (it gets slightly easier each time) great exercise after eating lots of pasties! The Cobweb does great food, the portions are HUGE! You must also visit the pottery next door to the Cobweb where you can watch the "Boscastle Magic Paint" We have already decided we will me staying at Tao again next year.
Super Holiday Cottage
By Clara on 15-Aug-2013
Tao Cottage in Boscastle is a super holiday cottage. It is well managed and well equiped, with a large sociable kitchen and gorgeous garden. Comfortable, spacious and roomy house is well situated (on a steep hill) in the middle of beautiful Boscastle harbour town, and there is a footpath to the cliff walks across the road, and the harbour (etc) down the hill. What more could we want! This was our second visit to Tao Cottage - and are planning more!
