About the property

Buddlestone is set in a peaceful farm location on the Lands End Penisula, 1/4 mile from village amenities and within a few miles of beaches and coves & pretty Lamorna Valley

Set at the end of the owners’ private drive approximately ¼ mile from the traditional Cornish village of St Buryan. Buddlestone originally formed part of the owners’ grade 2 listed traditional period farmhouse (adjoining) and offers a peaceful setting from which to explore the many magnificent beaches, gardens and historical countryside West Cornwall has to offer. Buddlestone, at Bosliven Farm, is set in the middle of the scenic Lands End Penisula, half way between Lands End itself and the harbour town of Penzance and close to the famed artists retreat of Lamorna Valley/Cove and the pretty wooded cove of St Loy.

Buddlestone offers spacious accommodation inside and out and is perfect for families or those looking for somewhere to holiday with their dogs. Although spacious enough for a family of 6 (plus cots), Buddlestone also offers the perfect retreat for couples with its homely feel, due in part to its cosy wood burner set inside the impressive granite fireplace. A real feature of the property is its large private garden, laid mainly to lawn with established and young fruit trees (guests are welcome to make use of the abundant apples when ripe). The perfect place in the country to get away from the rat race and to explore the beauty of Cornwall, be it by foot, bicycle, car or just soaking up the sun on our gorgeous local beaches, yet close enough to everyday amenities or the bustling market and harbour towns of Penzance and St Ives with all their culture history.

On arrival you will find wine chilling in the fridge and a traditional Cornish Cream Tea laid out for you to enjoy around the farmhouse kitchen table. We welcome well behaved dogs (2) who can enjoy the enclosed garden or local dog friendly beaches by day and stretch out in front of the fire by night.

Outside you can relax in the large private garden and enjoy a glass on the patio or in the relaxing conservatory while the children play. On cooler evenings light the wood burner and snuggle up under a cosy throw on one of the sofas.

Located in the far west of Cornwall, the historic parish of St Buryan dates from the 6th century and lies at the heart of the Land's End peninsula amidst green fields. The impressive tower of St Buryan Church is a famous landmark, visible from far out to sea. Here you will find local amenities including dog friendly pub, shop, garage, post office. An area of outstanding natural beauty, it is ideally placed to explore the many fascinating sites and beautiful coasts of West Cornwall.

The beautiful coves and white sandy beaches of both coasts on the Land's End Peninsula are all within 10 minutes drive of Buddlestone. The coastal path can be accessed a few minutes drive away, or walk the inland field paths to the coast. A 12 minute drive will take you back to Penzance where you will find a variety of shops and most of the major supermarkets. For those looking for cultural inspiration Penzance has numerous galleries that reflect West Cornwall's distinguished reputation in the international art world, along with The Tate, St Ives. While in Penzance why not sample some of the award winning cuisine on offer in and around the town. For those wishing to explore the beautiful gardens of Cornwall, Trewidden and Trengwainton are within 10 minutes drive of Buddlestone, further afield Trebah, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project are all within an hour to an hour a half, to name but a few.

Buddlestone offers a real home from home to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside, a great base from which to explore the Land's End Peninsula offering one of the most treasured landscapes in Europe, famed for its scenic beauty and for the richness of its prehistoric and industrial archaeology, idyllic beaches, golden granite cliffs and lonely moorland. West Cornwall really has something for everyone, from walking, cycling, sunbathing, surfing, fauna and flora, to cultural and heritage sites and tourist attractions.

About Vicki Rogers

Both my husband and I were born in Cornwall. My husband grew up in St Buryan, while I was brought up on the family farm near Helston. Having gone to university in Canterbury, Kent and various stints in Essex and Hertfordshire, I came home to Cornwall about 15 years ago. As a family we all enjoy the outdoors and country life.

Vicki Rogers purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Vicki Rogers chose Saint Buryan

St Buryan is a friendly village to bring up a family, it is where my husband is from and many of the family still live in and around the village. Lying at the heart of the Lands End Peninsula in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there is everything you could wish for within a short drive. We are within 10 minutes of all the town amenities of Penzance, including it's shopping centre, galleries, fine eateries, night life and even the vineyard. We have all the beauty of West Cornwall right on our doorstep, from sheltered wooded valleys to lonely and wild heathland. Some of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall on both coasts are all within a few miles, as is the coastal path with its breath taking views. Why would you want to live anywhere else!

What makes this cottage unique

Within 10 minute drive of both coasts, their amazing beaches and coastal paths.

Close to local village amenities (10 min stroll or 2 mins by car).

Secluded & peaceful position set at the end of pretty farmhouse drive.

Large private enclosed garden. Child and dog friendly.

Private parking.

A comfortable home from home with plenty of room inside and out.

Friendly but non intrusive owners, always available to answer any questions, make recommendations or even book taxi's.

Owner's Response: Thank you, glad you enjoyed your stay & thank your daughter for the lovely note she left. Lovely to know that the little extras are worth it. Also a big thank you for leaving the cottage clean & stripping the beds was a massive bonus. We hope to see you all again. Vicki

Cosy and spotlessly clean house in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week in October half term at Buddlestone. House was comfortable, cosy and spotlessly clean with every facility you could want. Dogs enjoyed the spacious garden . Ideally situated to enjoy all our favourite places in this part of Cornwall. The little extra touches from Vicki make the stay even more special like Halloween decorations , wine , cream tea and Halloween chocolates for my daughter. All in all would highly recommend and hope to return very soon.

Ideal for families

  • 4 of 5

This large cottage is ideal for families with children. Everything was spotless and we received a warm and delicious (I simply love scones with jam and clotted cream :-) ) welcome. We stayed for a week and didn't drive more than 15 miles because there are so many beautiful spots (we loved the coves!) in the environment.

Excellent stay in a wonderful environment

  • 5 of 5

The Bosliven farm is a very cozy and spacious, beautiful cottage and Vicky a perfect host who wants her guests to have a good time. And the whole countryside and things to visit overthere are worth seeing. Only downfall was the weather. But that's something one should expect when traveling to Cornwall and it didn't keep us from having a wonderful time!

Perfectly located cottage for a peaceful break

  • 5 of 5

Buddlestone is a lovely peaceful cottage on a farm. It adjoins the farmhouse and Vicki could not be more helpful and welcoming. Although you are in a separate part of the same building, you have complete privacy with your own entrance doors and completely private garden. You arrive to find a Cornish clotted cream tea ready for you, and a bottle of wine chilling in the fridge. The kitchen is very well equipped, and the garden has comfortable furniture and a charcoal bbq. The living rooms are comfortable; we were very lucky with the weather, so were outside most of the time, but the sun / garden room is perfect for relaxing if you can't get outside so much! The only slight negative is that there is no downstairs toilet, the only one is in the bathroom upstairs, which requires co-ordination when you have a family all getting ready to go out! The garden is completely secure for our dogs, who were able to play without any worry. Vicki has dogs of her own and made ours feel very welcome. There is ample opportunity to walk the dogs over the surrounding countryside. The village of St Buryan has a small, but well stocked, Supermarket and an excellent dog-friendly pub. In the local area there are many wonderful places to visit, our choices really focussed on dog friendly places such as Lamorna Cove, Long Rock beach and Lands End. We travelled a long way for our holiday, and it was worth every mile! Vicki really makes you feel welcome and we would wholeheartedly recommend Buddlestone.
