We've been to Bosinver twice - stayed once in Higher Hill and once in Hydrangea - and have already booked our third holiday there next autumn. This year we stayed for a week in which it rained every day and in which our youngest child had a vomiting bug ... and yet we still had a great time! That's how good it is. Bosinver is probably the best self-catering establishment we've stayed in anywhere in the world. The cottages are spotlessly clean yet comfortable with no 'niggles' at all. Comfortable beds, well-stocked kitchen, and appliances that actually work. Each cottage has its own character and each has sufficient privacy to make you feel as if you are not in a holiday village. Bosinver farm itself is full of incredible activities for the family, from feeding the animals each morning, to collecting eggs from the henhouse, to riding the ponies, to swimming in the incredibly warm outdoor pool, to playing in the fantastic 'playbarn' full of softplay equipment and ride-on toys, to taking walks down in the forest trails below the cottages, to playing on the zip wire. Then, once the kids are in bed, the adults can enjoy a glass of wine while watching the bunnies in the meadow, or listening to the owls hooting overhead. The location itself is in easy reach of a number of great beaches and attractions. We feel a bit lame going back to the same place all the time, but it is faultless, so why go anywhere else?
