What a great time we had. Maddie and Adrian were great hosts and most welcoming. Genuinely nice people. I was there with my teenage sons and we had a great time. I am looking forward to returning with my wife and convincing her that Glamping is so much fun. If you are thinking of staying in Penzance, you won't do... More

We stayed here in September with our two young children (aged 2 & 3). We booked directly through Maddy's own website so stayed in one of the newer lodges which was fantastic. Maddy & Adrian make the perfect hosts and honestly can't do enough for you, the food was great especially Maddy's Lasagna! The location is great for exploring this... More

We have just returned home and I cant recommend Boswarthen Farm enough. The Farm is amazing, the glamping tent is amazing the views and location are amazing but most of all our hosts Maddie and Adrian make it a very special experience. It is their inclusiveness and energy that make a difference and make it special for all their guests.... More

From the moment that Maddie welcomed us to the moment that we left i could only fault 1 thing.....We didn't stay for long enough! Our 'Tent' was a home away from home! Everything that we needed was there, from lovely bed linen, to great views, from a fantastic cabin bed, to friendly chickens, from shooting clay pigeons (i hit one)... More

We loved our holiday at Boswarthen. Beautiful spot with lovely views. Really warm welcome from Maddie and Adrian. Interesting to learn a little about the farm as well. Kids loved the chickens and Maddie's lasagne night. We stayed in one of Maddie's tents rather than Featherdown and were really impressed. Our first experience of glamping and we all definitely want... More

Beautiful views down to St Michael's Mount, great location, amazing hospitality and care from Maddy and Adrian our hosts. We smashed a back light on our car, Maddy called round all the mechanics in Penzance and saved the day. Delicious homemade food, we ate Maddy's dishes every night rather than cook. Highlight included lasagna night with open fire and quad... More

Just back from an Easter glamping trip at Boswarthern. The farmers Maddie and Adrian could not do enough to make our stay memorable. Private tours of the farm, help when my son needed a doctor, hot water and jacket potatoes on arrival. The showers were spotless and really hot and powerful - just what you need! The children had unlimited... More

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

“The top field has better views of St Michael's Mount, and is closer to the farm shop and showers”
 of 5 bubbles TKFEngland, Jun 27, 2014 | Read review
“The top field is nearer the car park, showers and shop. However, you will also have more people walking past your tent on their way to these facilities. If you want more privacy I would ask for an end of row tent in the bottom field.”
