Boscrowan (Peace and Plenty)
Barn | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Peacefully located on the edge of Penzance, Boscrowan provides a secluded haven whilst offering easy access to Penzance's excellent facilities and Far West Cornwall's many attractions. Peace and Plenty, a reversed level barn conversion that sleeps 4, and Ring and Thimble a thatched cottage for 2, have been beautifully and sympathetically converted and offer high quality accommodation. Views of the orchard and delightful garden, complete with its own stunning summer house, make this holiday accommodation an unequalled retreat which you may find difficult to leave. Wander around Boscrowan and you will more than likely meet horses, ducks, chickens, cats and the two collie dogs who are always partial to some fuss. The attention to detail from the fine décor to the complimentary cream tea on arrival will surpass even the highest expectations. The owners are committed to sustainability and as part of this provide environmentally friendly cleaning products, recycling facilities as well as also being able to offer locally sourced food.
Nearby you can explore the breathtaking beaches of Porthcurno, Sennen Cove, St. Ives and Marazion with its causeway to the iconic St. Michael's Mount. Other local attractions include the open air Minack Theatre, St. Ives and Land's End and local gardens Trengwainton, Trewidden and Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. Further afield but easily accessible are The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Please make enquiry to check current availability on either of our properties.

The West Country region
The Penwith Peninsula provides breathtaking scenery with its rugged landscape, clear seas, bright skies and warm climate. It is possible to enjoy a variety of attractions, whatever your age, from unspoilt beaches and coves to ancient monuments, historic sights, art galleries, unrivalled gardens and of course Land's End. The magnificent coastline is ideal for those who love walking and there are many fine pubs and restaurants to relax in along the way. A truly magical, interesting and beautiful area whatever the season.
Penzance, an ancient market town with fine Georgian and Regency architecture, hosts a good selection of interesting shops, restaurants and cafés. The town is also well served with two major supermarkets. Set in the sheltered corner of St. Mount's Bay the area is dominated by the historic St. Michael's Mount and it offers one of the most temperate climates in the UK. The restored art deco Jubilee Pool located between the promenade and harbour is the UK's largest open air seawater lido and is wonderful safe place to relax against a stunning backdrop. There are many fine beaches on the doorstep including Sennen Cove renowned for its surf and the unspoilt beaches at Porthcurno and Praa Sands. Penzance is also ideally situated for Truro and Falmouth and The Eden Project is less than an hours drive away. Both Penzance and nearby Newlyn have a thriving arts scene with several art galleries. Good links to the rest of the UK are provided by the mainland rail network, of which Penzance is the southernmost station. A reliable local bus service also gives holiday makers alternative options for exploring the area.

We are delighted you all enjoyed your stay and we gain great pleasure from sharing a slice of our country life with our guests. Everyone arrives with different expectations and interests and we aim to satisfy them all, be it feeding the animals and collecting eggs, being taken for a walk around the fields by Meg our younger collie or having complete peace and quiet and chilling under the apple trees with a book. Whatever, we hope our guests will have a relaxing holiday and return home refreshed, revived and enthused!
