Exploring the South West Coastal path as well as some fabulous pubs/eateries around the Lizard was a joy from this ideal holiday home. From the start the owner Julian made the stay memorable and welcoming; we look forward to visiting again!

Management response:

Hi Debbie, It was a real pleasure to welcome you to Boscrege and I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sure there are still a few different pubs for Jeff to sample on another visit ? but I expect the lure of The Ship in Porthleven will just be to strong ! Hope to see you again soon,...
