We have visited Bosinver a few times & it never disappoints. For our 50th Anniversary we brought 16 family members including 8 children ranging from 3-14. We all had a wonderful weekend. No-one wanted to leave, but school gets in the way of fun! Our accommodation was excellent & the farm has so much to offer all ages. Dave &...

Such a brilliant week away with the hubby and little one (he's 1) weather was a bit iffy but didn't make a difference with the brilliant playbarn and pool. They were both spotlessly clean and our little one enjoyed burning some energy off in the playbarn. The whole team were extremely helpful and friendly and happy to offer advice and...

I had my hen weekend in Lowan last month and it was pure perfection. 8 girls in the most beautiful setting, it was the best weekend I could have wished for. The house had everything we could have needed, especially the Hot Tub which we used all the time! The house was luxury, secluded enough for us not to annoy...

Four adults and one dog rented Apple cottage last week. This cottage is close to the main St. Austell/Truro main road but is in a peaceful oasis with well-equipped cottages, a superb swimming pool, tennis court, lakeside walks and much more beside. We could even walk to the local pub for a delicious meal each evening. We cannot recommend Bosinver...

The only bad thing about Bosinver is our three year old talking about it until we go back again. He loves the woods to explore, the ponies, we were in the pool most days, played tennis, the slides and zip wire. He would do wild kids every day given the chance. We also love Nanny Pat's adventure book for finding...

Thank you for the lovely review. So glad you enjoyed your stay and managed to find the Hidden Hut at Porthcurnick beach, one of our favourite haunts. My book of 'Nanny Pat's Adventures' with my grandchildren has been really popular with guests this year - helping guests to plan successful days out here in Cornwall with babies and toddlers.

We as a family of 5 had a lovely stay at Bosinver. Plenty to do on-site, and even more off-site! We definitely needed 2 weeks rather than 1 to explore the area so will be back! The swimming pool and play barn were brilliant- our 3 year old spent most days there. Both were of an extremely high standard. Feeding...

Many thanks for your review - we are glad that you enjoyed yourselves so much and intend to return for longer next time. We would just like to clarify the situation regarding the laundry. Our countryside location means that we are not connected to mains drainage (we have septic tanks and soakaways) so have provided a centralised laundry room (with...
