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.

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...

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...

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.

Our family of 6 filled up Pencarmol, and we enjoyed every minute of our all-too-short stay. Jack & Fay are wonderful hosts, and we enjoyed meeting their friendly cat as well. Jack even backed our large vehicle down the narrow street for us! The rooms were all very comfortable (bathrooms a little small, but certainly serviceable), and we loved being...

Location and infrastructure - Pencarmol is located up a slight hill on the side of the valley and is the last building in the terrace row. From the front door you are on the path that takes you to the coastal cliffs which are a short walk away. There is parking for guests but it does get tight and walkers...

A stunning location, I felt like I was on a 'Poldark' set. A very comfortable and welcoming environment. The owners are very kind and patient. The breakfast was delicious with a choice of English breakfast or pancakes where my daughters opted for the pancakes. A very relaxed environment being able to come and go as you please with ease. I...

We stayed at Pencarmol in August 2011 and were amazed that such a place exists at such a reasonable price. The luxury of a parking space in Boscastle was a big draw, as was the idea of waking up right on the harbour. Jack was on the doorstep waiting for us, and the cup of tea was life-saving after a...

Such a great location - the first place you come to on the Coast Path just above the harbour - and were made to feel so welcome that decided to stay for two nights rather than the originally-planned one. Glad we did! Really comfortable and absolutely brilliant breakfast. Would recommend Pencarmol without hesitation.
