Our Access Statement

Caroe Farmhouse Access Statement


This access statement has been produced to clarify the layout construction and working practices of Caroe Farmhouse B&B. 

As a traditional farmhouse building of some 160 years old and with all accommodation on the first floor the suitability of access must be considered by each individual prior to booking. Whilst we do our best to accommodate all guests there are inherent limitations within this older type of property which cannot be overcome.

Caroe Farmhouse is a mid to late 19th Century farmhouse situated a few minutes from the coast and the harbour of Boscastle overlooking beautiful Cornish countryside in a peaceful and tranquil setting.  Inside and outside the property has been restored and updated to a very high standard with guests facilities mainly confined to the North side of the hallway that divides the property. This includes guest ensuite bedrooms, and occasional dining room. However guests will most often eat breakfast in the kitchen around the farmhouse table or al fresco on the decking ( weather permitting } overlooking the lawn and the inspiring countryside beyond.

Brian and Cynthia Paterson are therefore proud to welcome all guests into their home and to partake of their exceptional hospitality.
