Penzance, Cornwall, England
Peacefully located on the edge of Penzance, Boscrowan provides a secluded haven whilst offering easy access to Penzance's excellent facilities and Far West Cornwall's many attractions. Peace and Plenty, a reversed level barn conversion that sleeps 4, and Ring and Thimble a thatched cottage for 2, have been beautifully and sympathetically converted and offer high quality accommodation. Views of the orchard and delightful garden, complete with its own stunning summer house, make this holiday accommodation an unequalled retreat which you may find difficult to leave. Wander around Boscrowan and you will more than likely meet horses, ducks, chickens, cats and the two collie dogs who are always partial to some fuss. The attention to detail from the fine décor to the complimentary cream tea on arrival will surpass even the highest expe... Read more

My partner and I stayed at the wonderful peace and plenty for 1 week which went far too quickly. I don't think we have ever stayed at a more beautiful cottage than peace and plenty. Boscrowan farm is a truly beautiful, relaxing base where to explore Cornwall from. Our host the lovely Elizabeth, could not be more welcoming and helpful....

There is so much to see and do that a week here is never long enough and our regular annual guests seem to always find new places to explore every time they return to Boscrowan. So we...

The word wonderful says it all, all is provided and more besides. This was our 4th visit and I think that says it all. One week isn't long enough! But one has to do for us, but if you can go for 2 weeks then please do so. We stayed in Ring and Thimble which is for 2 people. Elizabeth...

Thank you for your wonderful review! It is one of the greatest compliments to have guests return year after year when there are so many other self catering places in Cornwall that they could try should they choose. We like to make holidays here just that bit more special!

We have just got back from a fabulous stay at Peace and Plenty. The cottage is beautifully furnished and very homely. We particularly enjoyed spending the evenings playing some of the many board games on offer in front of the log burner! The lovely cream tea provided on arrival was also a lovely touch. The kitchen is spacious and well...

Thank you for your kind review and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Indeed, thank you for mentioning the DVDs - I am sure we can add to the collection for the future. We always welcome customer feedback.

About the neighborhood
Penzance, an ancient market town with fine Georgian and Regency architecture, hosts a good selection of interesting shops, restaurants and cafés. The town is also well served with two major supermarkets. Set in the sheltered corner of St. Mount's Bay the area is dominated by the historic St. Michael's Mount and it offers one of the most temperate climates in the UK. The restored art deco Jubilee Pool located between the promenade and harbour is the UK's largest open air seawater lido and is wonderful safe place to relax against a stunning backdrop. There are many fine beaches on the doorstep including Sennen Cove renowned for its surf and the unspoilt beaches at Porthcurno and Praa Sands. Penzance is also ideally situated for Truro and Falmouth and The Eden Project is less than... more
