This was our best glamping holiday by far. Maddie and Adrian were very friendly and helpful even whilst running a working dairy farm.the communal showers were clean and honest shop well stocked. The farm itself is well situated for local attractions and there is a number of superstores close by.I had read reviews of people complaining but I feel these... More

We've now visited Boswarthen Farm three times. In fact, it's the only holiday venue we've ever visited more than once. As a rule we try to visit new places each time we travel, but for this fab farm we've made an one-off exception; it's that good! The hospitality from Maddie and Adrian (the farm owners) is always warm and welcoming.... More

We have just spent a long-weekend at Boswarthen and the kids had the most wonderful time. They watched milking and helped feed the calves and had a great time looking after two hens who sadly didn't lay us an egg (far too much prodding and poking for them to get on with it). We booked via feather down and were... More

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
