About the home

Being a small hamlet of just seven houses 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.
Parking and private garden. 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 / Cornwall 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 Helston / Boscrege area
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.

This is only my third review of a property I have stayed at. I often think to myself "oh I must review that when I get back" but then rarely get around to it. But on this occasion I think... more

Accommodation and facilities were excellent and ideal location for the quiet getaway with large garden and all you need for a perfect holiday - the welcome pack made the first day easy and every need for a self catering holiday was catered for to the highest quality - Ideally located for beaches and coastal walks in SW Cornwall

A spotlessly clean place in a very quiet location. Excellent facilities, in particular for washing and drying during a rather wet two weeks! Sarah and family were very friendly and helpful. Wonderful walks from the Lodge up Godolphin and Tregonning Hills. Try the Lion and the Lamb at Ashton for lunch. Praa Sands beach is a short drive away, as are Marazion, St. Michaels Mount and Penzance. For an excellent meal, try The Bake House in Penzance – you will need to book. Thanks, Sarah, for a smashing two weeks.
