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

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
