    "Perfect getaway"

    We stayed at Bojea over our New Years break and we cannot rate this house and owners highly enough! My husband, 18 month old son and small dog holidayed at Bojea with our friends, their 15 year old and 15 month old daughter. There was plenty of space for two busy families and the toddlers had a whale of a time! We had a lovely welcome of a warm cosy home (we arrived in the early hours, Judy was very accommodating). Judy also arranged to two highchair and two travel costs to save us space on our journey, which was just brilliant. The house is well equipped and spacious. We had such a lovely stay and enjoyed exploring all around the local areas. We will recommend Bojea to family and friends and we hope to return again! Thank you again Judy, a perfect holiday home owner

    Response to review:

    "Fabulous Cottage "

    We have just returned from a fantastic week at Bojea. Beautiful house, great outdoor relaxing space, child and dog friendly... we were sad to have to come home! A short stroll from the centre of "Meva" with its shops, bars and restaurants around the harbour. Quiet and secluded yet close to St Austell for supermarkets, cash points and fuel. The house is well equipt and large enough for 4 adults, 3 dogs and 1 9 year old to spread out in, yet it feels cosy too. We very much hope to return for 2 weeks in 2016 xxx

    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
