Description

The Longhouse in Boscrege 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.

The Longhouse is a newly converted 16th century Cornish barn only completed in May 2013.

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.

The Longhouse 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. As The Longhouse is newly completed holiday rental please refer to the reviews from our other property, The Lodge (which 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 its 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 Longhouse is a characterful detached converted barn which has been sympathetically modernised for practicality, whilst retaining a wealth of original features. The property sleeps up to 4 people and a baby, with one large double bedroom, and a sofa bed in the spacious lounge to sleep 2 comfortably. Ample heating supplied by modern night storage heating and a traditional wood burner for those ambient evenings in. A stylish wet room, Wifi, iPod dock, digital TV, dishwasher, microwave etc. all the mod cons for a comfortable year round holiday destination.

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)!

“First Class Accommodation that I would recommend to anyone.”

Reviewed 13 Sep 2016

The accommodation is First Class. It is comfortable and well appointed with all the amenities you could wish for. The owner not only provided breakfast items but also many other items were available which showed his attention to detail. He was always available to provide local knowledge of places of interest and restaurants etc. This helped to ensure our stay was memorable. We would definitely slay at the Longhouse again and would recommend it to family and friends.

Owner's reply: Thank you John, & Julie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and the restaurant recommendations (oh, I've a couple more you're going to love so all good for next time ?). It was my pleasure in welcoming you to Boscrege and very much hope to see you again, perhaps in the spring when the hedgerow flowers are beautiful, the walking lovely, plus home to the log burner (and a cheeky Malt ?!). Best Wishes to you both, Julian
