Lodge | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Boscrege Lodge is a secluded rural retreat within a stones throw of West Cornwall's finest beaches and hidden coves. Located on the fringes of the National Trust's Godolphin Estate, the tranquil setting and extensive private grounds lend itself equally to a relaxing short break as easily as extended holidays.
Although a mere eight miles from Penzance and six miles from Helston you could be forgiven for thinking you are a hundred miles from modern day life. With countless short and long walks on your doorstep, offering the most stunning views of "forgotten Cornwall" it's up to you how far you venture. Uniquely located between the ruggedness of the North Cornish coast with the miles of golden sands of St Ives Bay and the more tranquil South Coast with quieter beaches and hidden coves. Both the Lizard and Lands End peninsulas are as equally accessible.

- A wonderful escape for walkers with mile upon mile of beautiful Cornish countryside on the doorstep.

The Lodge is one of two holiday rental properties at Boscrege Villa, both detached from one another although at the same time providing the perfect opportunity for two families to holiday at the same time whilst keeping living/outdoor space private and separate. Both properties having their own garden and patio area. The other property known as The Longhouse can be accessed at the bottom of this page or please contact us for more information,
Being a small hamlet of just nine properties Boscrege has it's own unique pace of life. The tractor from the neighbouring farm is likely to be the only modern sound you will occasionally hear, for the most part it will be the songbirds populating the gardens or the birds of prey circling overhead and an owl or two in the evenings. You may also catch a sighting of the foxes and the rare species of bats are ever present.
The Lodge is a detached property, white, bright, stylish and contemporary with two bedrooms - one double and one bunk room sleeping up to four plus space for a cot in the double bedroom. Oil fired central heating, Wifi, iPod dock, digital TV, dishwasher, microwave etc. all the mod cons for a comfortable year round holiday.
At any time during your stay savour the organic flavour of Katie eating apples straight from the branch and Bramley cookers if you fancy a crumble or pie (served with Cornish clotted cream is a must)!

The West Country region
Due to its remote peninsula Geographic’s, West Cornwall’s scenery is ever-changing due to the changeable light from varying weather conditions. It is the type of place that will provide the opportunity to be awe-struck by the sublime beauty of any given cove, cliff walk, beach or country walk one day, to re-visit the very next to behold the same spot in a wild, soul-inspiring show of nature’s fury. There is something quite unique and romantic about seeing a historic mine working, clinging to a cliff edge, whilst being battered by the tempest of the North Atlantic.
The hamlet of Boscrege is located in the heart of West Cornwall and is uniquely located to offer visitors not only the stunning coastline, with its hidden coves and white sandy beaches, but also the rural Cornwall that time forgot. Situated in a world heritage site the past is ever present from the archetypal mine workings to the prehistoric settlements and landmarks that abound in this Celtic land. Country walks, on the doorstep, offer the most stunning views of untouched West Cornwall, whilst at the same time, avoiding the main tourist tracks.
Both the North (St. Ives Bay) and South (Mounts bay) coasts are easily accessible enabling the watersports enthusiast to find a variety of conditions that suit on any given day. The mile long, sandy beach of Praa Sands and Hendra is but five minutes away. World class surf and windsurfing spots abound as well as having great dive spots and sailing venues to hand.
Boscrege is the tranquil setting to allow exploration of both the Lizard and Land’s end penisulas alike.

"A Delightful Holiday Cottage"
The owner of The Lodge has thought of everything to make this holiday cottage 'stand out from the crowd'. It is arguably the cleanest, best maintained and most well equipped cottage in which I have stayed. It is set in a quiet, pretty, rural location which feels quite remote, but is actually only two or three miles from the coast. Its position allowed us to visit all of West Cornwall during our one week stay.
