Bosveal occupies the main, central part of Bosloe. Its sitting rooms, its grand dining room and three of its six bedrooms face south and enjoy the panoramic spectacular view out over the Helford River. There can be few more impressive places to stay, not just in Cornwall but anywhere in the country, than this grand yet relaxed country house, built for pleasure in a more leisurely age.

There is an interconnecting door between Bosveal and Court enabling larger parties (of up to 20) to enjoy these beautiful properties. The west wing of Bosloe is home to Chatham with it's touch of elegant Arts and Crafts style.

The Bothy is a lovely little hideaway in the grounds of Bosloe perfect for a romantic hideaway for two.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Gracious interior.

    The interior felt very gracious and our grand-daughters loved wondering on the lawns playing cricket and frisbee. Washing machine and dryer particularly appreciated by mother of a 3 year old.
