"Fantastic stay"

We arranged our booking for Bojea early this year for our stay in June and from the start Judy couldn't have been more helpful as I was arranging a family holiday with 6 adults and 3 kids - two of which are under two. Nothing seemed like to much trouble from offering extra travel cots and high chair to allowing us into the property early on our arrival. When we arrived in Mevagissey the weather was absolutely perfect - a lovely 25'c. We walked around the harbour and went for a much deserved cold pint after a four hour drive. When we received a call freom Judy to say Bojea was ready we went straight there. The house itself is beautiful, both in design and setting. Everything we needed for our stay was there. The welcome pack with a lovely bottle of wine, chocolates some beer and essentials was a lovely touch as were the goodies on the childrens beds. Everything had been thought of. I loved that there was a photo book showing all the hard work that had gone into making Bojea what it is today as well as some ideas on what they are going to do next. I hope that we will go back to see this as it's sure to be amazing.

Response to review:
Thank you so much for this wonderful review.... We are so pleased that you all had a wonderful time and you had fantastic weather!!....It is important to us that we create the holiday setting you will remember and for children to feel a part of that by having their own welcome pack!!! Your review is also helpful for future guests. We hope in the future you would like to come back to 'Bojea' and see the changes we have planned. Thank you Pete & Judy

"First class"

Fantastic feel to the house, everything you could think of is provided, no corners cut, very high spec, all facilities top quality. Amazing to find such accommodation that is so nice and yet allows the dog too. Though you would never guess that other dogs had been there as house and grounds were spotless. This place has a personal presentation that the owners have made every effort to cater for the holiday maker enjoying a relaxing and perfect break at Bojea. Located well so that cornwall can be explored without long journeys to and from Cornwall's attractions. It was total luxury coming back to Bojea at the end of an excursion. I highly recommend.

Response to review:
Thank you so much for this glowing review....It gives us pleasure to know that you have been able to relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of 'Bojea' with your dog....Like you mentioned location wise it is perfect to explore the whole of Cornwall and there are many beaches dogs are allowed on all year round. Our dogs are a very big part of our lives so it was very important to make this place dog friendly. We hope that you will one day come back and visit Bojea and see the headway we are making in the garden. Thank you for highly recommending us.....Pete & Judy

"Fantastic house"

We have just returned from a week staying at Bojea. What a lovely house which is decorated and fitted out to a high standard. The kitchen has all you could need to cater for a family. It is well situated with an open aspect to one side and a lovely large garden that is secure. We could relax outside on one of the two patio/ decking areas with our dog who had fun exploring the different areas of the garden. Mevagissey, which is a pretty and friendly village is an easy 5 min walk and travel by car to other areas was easy. With 3 teenagers we definitely appreciated the good Wifi service. I would definitely recommend this to others and Judy was very thoughtful and helpful throughout the booking and our visit. If we return to Cornwall we would book here again.

We would love to welcome you back to Cornwall, Mevagissey and of course 'Bojea' Peter & Judy Bowden

"Great House"

The house is the best holiday home we have rented in the UK. The owners were extremely helpful from start to finish. Lovely hamper was a nice surprise on our arrival. The house is a high spec and the owners have furnished it like their own home and not like a normal let. The garden is fantastic would like to go back during the summer to get the most out of it. Mevagissey itself was a real surprise. Five good pubs and lots of restaurants to choose from. In our opinion better than Fowey and Padstow. Thanks Judy for a great week.

Response to review:
WOW!! Thank you for this cracking review. Fantastic for us and also for Mevagissey which is an unspoilt part of Cornwall and a wonderful and friendly place. Attention to detail is key to our success with this beautiful Cottage which we have enhanced (not changed) and allowed its hidden beauty to shine through. It would be lovely to welcome you back to 'Bojea' so that you can enjoy the garden and see the lovely pictures you sent us of your two dogs having a wonderful time on the beach on our 'Dogs on Holiday' Board!! Many Thanks Pete & Judy Bowden

"Lovely Christmas "

We stayed at Bojea Cottage over Christmas. The cottage was beautifully decorated with Christmas decorations & a tree. Also we was left an amazing hamper with treats for both us and the dog. We had a lovely open fire which made the cold evenings perfect. The cottage has great outdoor space with a lovely decking area which we are sure will be great for those warm summer evenings with a Gin & Tonic. Bojea is in a great location, with just a short walk to the harbour. We really did have a great Christmas in a wonderful cottage.

Response to review:
Thank you for a lovely review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your Christmas despite the weather being so wet. It pleases us to know that you rated us so highly and would love you to come back and maybe have that Gin & Tonic on the Decking on that Warm Summer Evening. Pete & Judy

About the Owner

We are a self employed couple living in Somerset. We have over the years spent many holidays in Cornwall and when this place came on the market we knew the time was right for us to invest in this little gem for our later years whilst at the same time getting a lot of pleasure from it. We have cocker spaniels which we work and gain a lot of pleasure from time spent with them. This year we bred our first litter which were sold before they were born!! (Yes..we kept could we not?) Our eldest daughter is married and now a Farmers wife and has enjoyed her first season lambing and our youngest daughter (10 years old) is pony mad. (A 15 year gap between the girls)
So there is never a dull moment between.

Year property purchased: 2012

Why this location?

We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it. It gives you that feeling of being in the country surrounded by fields & Trees yet a 10 minute walk away is the sea...Perfect... We saw the potential within, as it did need a lot of work. The house was gutted, retaining the original floor and restored using local tradesmen and a portfolio from start to finish is on display within the property. We feel happy with what we have achieved thus far and now look forward to the house being filled with laughter,chatter and happy memories and the garden taking shape and producing colour all year round....!!

What are the unique benefits of the property?

PARKING can be a problem in Mevagissey and we are fortunate enough to have off road parking for 4/5 vehicles. The property is a great base from which to explore what Cornwall has to offer
