This exceeded even our high expectations, I don't really want to tell anyone else about it so it doesn;t get too booked up and we can keep it a secret! Such a beautiful cottages - and from speaking with other families staying in different cottages we were certainly not alone in thinking this; animal feeding every day with Farmer Dave, pony rides, wild kids forest school sessions, giant outside slide, zip wire, tyre swing, gruffalo trail, beautiful bright indoor play barn, outside climbing frames, swings, trampoline, giant wendy house, different barn with table tennis etc, such friendly family always around to help out or give advise, the extras that have all been thought of to make this such a fantstic place to stay - even before you start exloring all the beautiful beaches and villages nearby....

Room Tip: any cottage is amazing!

Just returned from a heavenly trip to Bosinver farm cottages. We stayed in Polclay cottage which was beautifully decorated ( think Orla Kiely) and was 5 star luxury but homely as well. Every little thing was considered. Proper wooden cot. High chair. Bumbo. Toy box fully stocked. Booster seat. Wood burner with wood and fire lighters provided. Cream teas on arrival. Farm animals and fresh eggs daily. Outdoor play areas everywhere. Wild kids club complete with marshmallow toasting and mud kitchen. Beautiful warm swimming pool. Light and airy play barn with comfy leather sofa and CD player for the adults. Pony riding. Beaches near by. Wet weather suits for kids, buckets and spades and nets all available free of charge. New friends galore. Perfect break even in February with storm Doris. All kids sad to leave ( 4, 2 and 8 months). We will be back! Thanks so much!

Hi Claire D.
Many thanks for your brilliant review. we are delighted to read that Polclay cottage lived up to all your expectation, and that you enjoyed all the little extra touches, which we like to put in our cottages to make each of them very special. It is also great to know that you made good use of all the many facilities we have to offer here on the Farm. we have created lots of indoor activities as it is important to us to make sure that guests who visit us during the low season months, have just as much fun as guests coming in the summer. I hope we can welcome you back to Bosinver again very soon.

Just got home from five nights staying in Lowen cottage. We had an amazing break with friends. I would highly recommend it. One of the easiest holidays we've had with children (12 week year old and four year old). Included in the cost there is plenty for children to do (swimming, forest school, pony rides, feeding animal, play barn and outdoor play area and walks). Bosinver really ticked all the boxes for us. Our four year old had really good fun too. The Polgooth Inn is a 15/20 walk from cottages and serves great food and is very welcoming to families. We are looking at dates to go back again soon. Owners are so lovely and helpful, they really couldn't do enough for you.

Room Tip: Lowen is perfect for families wishing to share luxury accommodation. Hot tub was a bonus feature. (p...

We have just spent another fabulous week in Bosinver. Coliza cottage is just beautiful and is right next to the trampoline and play area!!What more can a 5 and 7 year old want!? Well there is so much more....the playbarn is just across the way as is the gorgeous swimming pool and the zip wire is across the fields. It is not hard to see why our children woke up this morning back home asking when we are going back to Bosinver again!!!This year we were able to enjoy the new gym with stunning views over the countryside and a great selection of lovely beauty treatments on site. The animal feeding and pony rides were a huge hit as always. When the kids are happy, the adults can relax and this is the only place we have found where everyone leaves feeling rested and revived!!The family who own Bosinver work tirelessly to maintain and develop this amazing place they have created. They are incredibly friendly and do everything they possibly can to make your holiday special. Thank you!!!

We spent 6 days at Bosinver with 3 families from the Netherlands with kids ranging 3-6 years in age. The property is fabulous with lots to do for kids (animal feeding, swimming in the very pleasant indoor pool etc.). The 3 cottages were all very comfortable, we liked cottage 'Coliza' best as it was cozy and spacious at the same time. Cornwall is a very pretty region with many opportunities for nice (half) day trips such as beaches, castles, gardens, quaint little villages etc. The journey from the Netherlands is very doable; the numerous flights daily to Bristol in combination with a rental car gets you quickly to Bosinver. All in all, highly recommended!

Hi Justus78 Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a fabulous review. It is good to know that after a long journey from the Netherlands you found Bosinver to be 'fabulous' and that you and the children enjoyed the all the facilities here, particularly the animal feeding and the indoor pool. We try to give all our cottages their own unique style, but I am not surprised that Coliza our thatched cottage, was your favourite, it is very popular with our regular guests looking for a smaller family cottage. It is interesting to read that you found the journey to Bosinver very doable from Europe, I hope this will encourage more of our European friends to visit us, we would love to welcome them here to Bosinver farm, and also show off our beautiful county of Cornwall. I hope too we can welcome you and your family back again soon.
