“Excellent accommodation in this tranquil corner of Cornwall”
Reviewed 23 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Enjoyed a return visit to Boscrege. Julian the owner, was very considerate and provided a superb welcome pack of local produce. The Longhouse gave us a central base to revisit our favorite part of Cornwall.

Thank you Gordon, Jill, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You did pick a lovely time to come down to South West Cornwall with the hedgerows looking so colourful with the Bluebells, Wild Garlic and Foxgloves, a real picture. Thank you and hopefully see you again, take care, Julian

“Beautiful maintained cottage in excellent quiet location with everything you could possibly need.”
Reviewed 14 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The Longhouse is beautifully maintained and simply gorgeous, with everything you need for a quiet get away. There is a lovely garden attached. The cottage has all the facilities you need. Julien was a perfect host, nothing was to much trouble to ensure our stay was just perfect. Thanks for the homemade bramble jelly Julien, we will be back!

Hi Caroline, Thank you for such a generous review. It was my pleasure to welcome you here to Boscrege and I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay. Do remember, I'm open for Christmas so perhaps you'll be tempted (and tell John by then the new season Jelly should be at it's prime, blackberries permitting of course !). I hope to see you both again soon, many thanks, Julian

“A hidden gem and cosy retreat”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A wonderful long weekend at The Longhouse. Once again the owner excelled at making us feel welcome with a fabulous breakfast provided and lots of additional touches to make the break feel special and the cottage is immaculately presented. The Longhouse was a welcome respite from slightly inclement weather with a wonderful log burner for cold winter evenings (especially for Kipper the Dog to curl up by) and plenty of good eateries in the vicinity. Lovely walks along the local beaches such as Rinsey Cove, Praa Sands and Sennen Cove made for a restful break

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

“A Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 7 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful two week stay in the Long House. It was immaculate when we arrived. Julian had really thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The goodies in the fridge were such a surprise and a real treat!
The change of sheets and towels ( and the short bread!)midway through our holiday was very thoughtful.
We were very comfortable inside the house and also enjoyed the privacy of the garden. Juno ( our dog) enjoyed it too.
Thank you for a great stay.

Hi Jane, Peter, (& Juno !), Thank you for your kind words and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and managed to re-charge the batteries ! I was in Mullion Cove yesterday and thought of you as there was a beautiful dog friendly beach with 5 or 6 dogs charging about in and out of the sea, how Juno would have loved that ! (by the way, she left her pink ball in the garden so it's in the shed waiting for your next visit ?!). I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer, thanks again, best wishes, Julian
