We stayed at Bosinver Farm for 7 nights and loved every minute of it. We were a group of 5 adults and 2 children and decided to stay in Jack's Barn which was ideal for our requirements. A large living room, huge dining table and well furnished kitchen. All of the rooms were clean, light and the whole place had a homely feel to it. Jack's Barn could perhaps do with 1 more toilet as it has a large family bathroom upstairs and a small ensuite downstairs but we made do just fine.
Everyone at the farm from Farmer Dave and his son, to Nana Pat, Joan et al were incredibly friendly and helpful. You are largely left to your own devices but there is plenty of advice and guidance from the Bosinver family as and when you need it. My children loved feeding the animals every morning at 9.45am as well as exploring the lake, Gruffalo trail, zip wire, slides, swings and indoor soft play room. There is a games room also for older kids (table tennis, pool etc). The swimming pool was warm and clean with plenty of floats left out for the kids to use.
If I had to point out one area of improvement the gym could do with some new / updated equipment to be in line with the modern standards of the rest of the farm but still there was ample space for 1-2 people to have a workout, tennis courts outside and plenty of places to go jogging.
We spent some incredibly valuable time together as 3 generations of our family and cherished our time at Bosinver.
