This property is wonderful. It is so well equipped and clean and the conservatory certainly has a romantic feel to it. This very spacious property is truly a gem with the beach being a few minutes walk. I highly recommend this property and we hope to visit again. Many thanks Rowella.

Excellent, clean, comfortable and quiet Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I booked Bosorne to get away over New Year and we are very glad we did.

We found the property easily and parked on the spacious drive, shutting the gate, which remained shut until we sadly had to leave to return home. Everything we wanted/needed was within easy walking distance so no need to use the car.

The property was a wonderful surprise, looking better in reality than the photos on the website. Everything was clean and tidy and the heating had been put on so we received a warm welcome.

The conservatory was a lovely surprise - we sat in there one night with just the rope lights on listening to the Cornish rain battering the roof - it was heaven!

Kitchen and bathroom were well equipped, the only small thing I would suggest is maybe a curtain behind the front door and by the rear kitchen doors onto the patio to add that extra touch of comfort/warmth.

We spent New Year's eve in St Ives which was great fun and splendid for vegetarians/vegans as there are loads of places to eat including: The Mex, Pengenna Pasties, Porthminster Beach Cafe and The Halsetown Inn (run by the people who run Blas Burger works - brilliant vegan burgers!).

It was an excellent break in a lovely place that we would happily recommend to anyone.

Great propery in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at Bosorne over the Easter holidays. There was plenty of room for a family of five to sit back and relax. I especially enjoyed reading in the sunny conservatory over looking the garden.

The long sandy Carbis Bay beach was a two minute walk down the hill with a hotel and restaurant where we enjoyed a lovely meal overlooking the beach.

We loved walking the coastal path to St Ives which was peaceful and full of beautiful views, and after a hectic day we could ride back on the coastal train which was nearby.

We definately hope to book again.

Lovely bungalow near Carbis Bay

  • 5 of 5

Bosorne - A very clean and spacious bungalow. Just a few minutes walk down the hill to the lovely Carbis Bay beach and railway station and a short drive to St Ives.. Small friendly supermarket a few minutes walk and Tesco just a few minutes drive.away We loved having breakfast in the conservatory, Ideally situated for visits to the many attractive bays and lovely walks in the area. Rowella is a responsive and friendly owner too. We will certainly try and book a stay here again when we next visit the area.
