Hi John, Shirley, that's very kind of you to give such a fabulous review and I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the cottage and this part of West Cornwall. I sometimes feel people don't realise just how beautiful this area of Cornwall is, and how much there is to do and see, and of course, the amazing walking.
I really look forward to seeing you back here in Boscrege sometime soon, the Spring is beautiful time to visit ?!
Thanks again, enjoy your 'big' anniversary and the exciting plans you have for it in the New Year, Kind Regards, Julian

Exploring the South West Coastal path as well as some fabulous pubs/eateries around the Lizard was a joy from this ideal holiday home. From the start the owner Julian made the stay memorable and welcoming; we look forward to visiting again!

Hi Debbie, It was a real pleasure to welcome you to Boscrege and I'm so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. I'm sure there are still a few different pubs for Jeff to sample on another visit ? but I expect the lure of The Ship in Porthleven will just be to strong ! Hope to see you again soon, and thank you for your generous review, best wishes, Julian

“Boscrege Cornwall - The Longhouse”
Reviewed July 3, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful week using the Longhouse as our base. The Longhouse is excellently equipped with everything you could possible need and a lot more. The owner Julian is very friendly and helpful with excellent advice on what to do in the local areas. Julian went above and beyond for which we are most grateful. Upon arrival we were surprised to find the fridge loaded with added local produce to make for an excellent Cornish breakfast (including eggs, bacon, sausages). We also were treated to a bottle of wine, a few beers, and other essentials (bread, butter, milk) etc. The cottage is very modern, but with wonderful original features. This included excellent Smart TV - allowing Netflix to be hooked up to it, Bluetooth speaker, and cosy wood burner. Kitchen has everything and helpfully a dishwasher. Garden is a good space. This is an lovely, quiet part of Cornwall. It was easy to forget how close other big towns were. That said, Praa Sands is within easy reach on foot (less that two miles). Porthleven has excellent pubs and restaurants, which is about 10 minutes drive away. This is the perfect getaway location if you are looking for peace and quiet, but is not too far off the beaten track. We would highly recommend this cottage and will consider returning.

Thank you Ash and Lucy for your very kind words, and I'm glad you enjoyed your holiday, I'm just sorry I couldn't magic up some better weather for you later in the week ! I do hope you get to come back some time as there are lots of lovely walks left to complete, and restaurants to sample. Thanks again, Kind regards, Julian

“Excellent accommodation in this tranquil corner of Cornwall”
Reviewed May 23, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Enjoyed a return visit to Boscrege. Julian the owner, was very considerate and provided a superb welcome pack of local produce. The Longhouse gave us a central base to revisit our favorite part of Cornwall.

Thank you Gordon, Jill, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You did pick a lovely time to come down to South West Cornwall with the hedgerows looking so colourful with the Bluebells, Wild Garlic and Foxgloves, a real picture. Thank you and hopefully see you again, take care, Julian

Reviewed April 13, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The Longhouse is beautifully maintained and simply gorgeous, with everything you need for a quiet get away. There is a lovely garden attached. The cottage has all the facilities you need. Julien was a perfect host, nothing was to much trouble to ensure our stay was just perfect. Thanks for the homemade bramble jelly Julien, we will be back!

Hi Caroline, Thank you for such a generous review. It was my pleasure to welcome you here to Boscrege and I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay. Do remember, I'm open for Christmas so perhaps you'll be tempted (and tell John by then the new season Jelly should be at it's prime, blackberries permitting of course !). I hope to see you both again soon, many thanks, Julian

“A hidden gem and cosy retreat”
Reviewed November 7, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A wonderful long weekend at The Longhouse. Once again the owner excelled at making us feel welcome with a fabulous breakfast provided and lots of additional touches to make the break feel special and the cottage is immaculately presented. The Longhouse was a welcome respite from slightly inclement weather with a wonderful log burner for cold winter evenings (especially for Kipper the Dog to curl up by) and plenty of good eateries in the vicinity. Lovely walks along the local beaches such as Rinsey Cove, Praa Sands and Sennen Cove made for a restful break

Thank you John, & Julie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and the restaurant recommendations (oh, I've a couple more you're going to love so all good for next time ?). It was my pleasure in welcoming you to Boscrege and very much hope to see you again, perhaps in the spring when the hedgerow flowers are beautiful, the walking lovely, plus home to the log burner (and a cheeky Malt ?!). Best Wishes to you both, Julian
