Just spent several nights at Boswarthen and enjoyed the company, the hospitality and the location. Maddy is a great host and the welcome was warm as the beds, the baked potatoes and the wood stove. There was a good mix of families and the nearby beaches and attractions were well worth a visit. We'll visit again and I'd recommend others... More

We had an enjoyable 3 nights staying in the large tented accommodation on the farm. A very comfortable stay. The hosts were a great couple. Nothing was an issue not that there were any. We had fun letting out the chucks (chickens) in the morning and feeding them, and saying hello to the 2 sheep. We've done something similar in... More

Having never been to featherdown farms before I was nervous as to what to expect (and what to pack!) I need not have worried, we all agree it was our best holiday ever despite our lack of preparation, both Maddy and Adrian came to introduce themselves immediately, their sons helped us to our tent ( myself, hubby and pur 3...

Considering the price of the break, we felt short changed. The tent wasn't clean upon arrival. It leaked down the chimney in rainstorms and we were told they all do that. We had to put buckets on the floor to deal with the amount of water coming in. Everything was extra. Not enough wood provided to even have a cuppa... More

Having returned from Boswarthen Farm on Friday I am feeling a little down ... we had such an amazing time away. We all love Cornwall, but staying at Boswarthen makes it extra special. The farm's location is beautiful with views over fields to St Michael's Mount. Having not stayed on the farm for two years we were glad to be... More

Had a lovely stay, the hosts were excellent. Beautiful location in cornwall the view from the tent was just gorgeous, lovely sunrise. The tents have a rustic glamping feel about them which works perfectly with the farm location. Boswarthen Farm is a working dairy farm/small holding with cows, goats & chickens etc. There is an honesty shop with tasty local... More

The setting of the farm is stunning, with views of the sea from the tents. As usual for a featherdown farm the tents are comfortable. What makes boswarthen so special is the hospitality from Maddy and Adrian. We loved learning more about the farm, nothing was ever too much trouble. The honesty shop was well stocked. Pizza and lasagna nights... More

Going to keep it short and sweet, we are a family of 4 with kids aged 9 and 14. We spent a week there. Expected the 9 year old to love it but didn't expect all of us to fall in love with the place and the fabulous hosts! The views over the coast and St Michael's mount are stunning,... More

We had a mid week (4 night) stay in June, and again can only echo the other positive comments. We have previously visited Feather Down Farms at Aller Farm in Devon and loved the experience, so we were eager to see how Boswarthen would compare. We were not disappointed, it was wonderful. The farm owners (Madeleine and Adrian) were fantastic... More

Glamping has really swepted across the nation with gusto and there are sites popping up in every county across the UK. Boswarthen farm is one of Cornwall’s finest glamping locations and for those who haven’t yet experienced this fabulous craze, there is no better way than here at Boswarthen farm. This site was highly recommended to me by another similar... More
