Adrian and I have had a couple of nights away, in St Ives yes St Ives,...
Not just accommodation.
Glamourous tent's, farm fun and hospitality to match.
As you may have heard, we are celebrating our independence but that is all that has changed. We don't just show you into the glamorous tents, we are also here (if you want us to be - it is upto you) to help, give advice on the area, to show you the cow's and tell you about farming. Our aim is to provide you with a wonderful experience that you won't get with other glamping holidays in the area.
Last year, we decided that we would like to have some of our own tents alongside the Feather Down ones (a member of their fold since 2007 and one of the originals). Three of them are of a similar size and standard to Feather Down's except they have veranda's too. We also have a two storey tent that sleeps up to eight and is therefore ideal for a couple of families travelling together. Then finally our gypsy caravan has been pressed into service accompanied by a bell tent for the older kids.
It is an exciting time for us and we hope you will want to return to Cornwall and celebrate with us, for all the usual reasons:
1. Same great location, providing a good base for many beautiful beaches and iconic locations. Views of the sea!
2. Same family, ok we are all older and maybe not wiser but if you enjoyed us on previous visits…
3. Still a working dairy farm with our Holstein Fresian herd, ponies, chickens, ducks and a couple of sheep.
4. Similar style tents so not exceptionally posh just comfortable and perfect for relaxing in, with cushions and throws which give a more homely feel. Lovely veranda's with swing seat's.
5. Most important – the same enjoyable experience for you, your family and friends.
6. We still have our honesty shop with local food and goodies.
Of course Cornwall still has it's beautiful scenery and incredible coastline, it's may stunning beaches and the sunrise AND sunset - all available in a short distance from Boswarthen.
The most incredible beaches in this Country are here, there are too many to write about 55 in fact from Godrevy on the north coast around to Praa Sands on the south. Whether it's surfing, sailing, wild swimming or sandcastles then this area has it all. If you prefer to be away from the crowds then we have small beaches and beautiful coves too.
How lucky are we to be situated between two coasts ? We have the north coast with it's dramatic views and rugged rocks (where Poldark is filmed) or the south coast with its warmer breezes and pretty flowers.The moors have their own mysterious atmospheres and ancient stones.In fact Lanyon Quoit and Men An Tol are within walking distance and on Boswarthen we have the Wishing Well and Celtic Chapel.
Jewels in our crown
St Michael's Mount and the Minack Theatre both described as iconic, are unique (thankfully)to this area. St Michael's Mount probably the most famous of Cornwall's landmarks, is steeped in both legend and folklore. The Minack Theatre is an open air theatre built into the granite at Porthcurno (the most popular beach with all my guests)and performances run from May to September,with the very popular story telling for children in the summer holidays(booking essential).We are literally next door to Trengwainton Gardens with many other beautiful gardens close by. Of course there are many other days out and things to do, all within a short distance of Boswarthen.
