A Little Slice of Heaven | Introducing Bosinver Farm Cottages

Since we’ve been a family of four, all of our holidays — apart from our amazing first family abroad to Sardinia in July — have been in and around the UK.

Luckily, Britain is such a beautiful island and, arguably, there’s nowhere more picturesque than Cornwall.

So much to do — sweet little fishing villages to explore plus bigger attractions like the Eden Project — all surrounded by glorious coastlines. Miles and miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, plus coastal walks along rocky cliffs and windswept hillsides.

It’s always gorgeous to gulp in the fresh sea air and get those cheeks glowing isn’t it? Being beside the seaside is the most amazing tonic and the perfect way to blow the cobwebs away.

So imagine our delight to be asked to stay at one of the loveliest locations in Cornwall — Bosinver Farm Cottages. A little slice of heaven on earth, offering self catering holidays on a luxury scale.

With 20 ‘homes-from-home’ to choose from — everything from eco-homes to beautifully designed cottages and farmhouses — holiday makers looking for the perfect getaway will be literally spoilt for choice.

As well as the gorgeously appointed accommodation, Bosinver boasts beautifully landscaped gardens and 35 acres of wildflower meadows — fingers firmly crossed this will be in bloom next spring when we visit, imagine what a glorious backdrop that could be for our monthly Me and Mine pictures!!

There are woods to explore — and a lake — perfect for getting closer to nature. I’m so looking forward to taking the boys out on an adventure. We can look for Stickman and The Gruffalo — perhaps take a picnic if the weather is kind.

And if it’s not, there’s still plenty to do indoors.

Bosinver Farm Cottages has an indoor swimming pool, a playbarn — with actual soft play equipment (total heaven on earth for two little three year olds I know!) — plus, if you fancy cosying up indoors and not leaving your cottage at all, the clever folk there have put together a baking box for guests to borrow!! Perfect for a bit of family baking with the kids.

I love that kind of attention to detail; everything has been thought of and little touches like that really make you remember a place don’t they?

Their larger cottages are ideal for family get-togethers and celebrations and sleep between 8- 12 people, depending on which you choose.

The Farmhouse, for example, boasts a 38ft lounge and Bosinver even have a private chef on hand, for guests who would rather hand the cooking duties over to someone else! 

As the cottages are laid out almost like a small village, a huge party could easily book a cottage each and totally take over the place (I’m thinking my boy’s next BIG milestone birthday in a couple of year’s time!!).

Needless to say, we are SO excited about visiting Bosinver Farm Cottages.

The Twinkles have already been making lists of things they want to see and do. Feeding the animals with Farmer Dave is high up there on the ‘to do’ list. They can also go on a pony ride on one of the farm’s three horses; Rupert, Kizzy or Secret.

Their daddy is looking forward to sampling the gastro-delights of Cornwall.

Bosinver is surrounded by a wealth of amazing eateries — beachside cafes serving lovely local produce — plus he’s keen to go to Rick Stein’s restaurant in Padstow.

We’re both huge lovers of seafood and it’s only a 40 minute drive from Bosinver, so we’ll certainly make the effort to go whilst we’re down there.

And me?

I’m looking forward to kicking back and enjoying the scenery and spending some quality time with my three boys.

Some of our extended family may be joining us for the week, so hopefully it will be a real family affair and a lovely opportunity to spend time with our nearest and dearest.

Word is, that there’s a couple of gin distilleries in that neck of the woods so we may seek them out too.

And finally, I’ve been keenly watching Poldark on a Sunday night so may go on a hunt for him whilst we’re down there…

*fans cheeks*

We are thrilled to be ambassadors for Bosinver Farm Cottages and are really looking forward to sharing our adventures with you, when we go next year. But if you can’t wait that long and fancy an autumn —or even winter — break in beautiful Cornwall, pop and have a look at their website.

You can even take your dog! ;)

    This place looks amazing, you had me at that cushion on the bed haha! Cornwall’s a long drive away for us but I’d really love to go sometime and staying somewhere like this especially when we have a little one, would be perfect, I bet you’ll be counting down the days, can’t wait to hear all about it! #HomeEtc xx

    • 3rd October 2016 / 5:02 pm

      It’s such a long way isn’t it? But hopefully all worth it when you’ve got somewhere as lovely as Bosinver, waiting at the other end!! Really excited :)

  5. 28th September 2016 / 9:35 am

    Oh wow it looks stunning lovely, Cornwall really is beautiful, I can’t wait to take the children there soon :-) There’s something about a thatched cottage that is so quintessentially English :-) x

    • 4th October 2016 / 11:56 am

      Cornwall is SO beautiful isn’t it? Really hoping we get some good weather when we go! It was March and FREEZING last time!!

  6. 28th September 2016 / 9:54 am

    Oh this looks amazing and I am swooning over how lush it looks. So good that the cottages look lovely but you also have decent facilities too. That pool – amazing! The soft-play – perfect. Oh you have made me want to stay here now :- )#HomeEtc

    • 4th October 2016 / 11:47 am

      It looks amazing doesn’t it? I literally cab’t wait to go!! SO excited :)

  7. 28th September 2016 / 10:09 am

    Oh so dreamy!! That first picture of the cottage is like something you’d find on a chocolate box, not that im wishing away the time but I can’t wait to see what adventures you get up to! X #HomeEtc

    • 4th October 2016 / 11:43 am

      It’s gorgeous isn’t it? I was thinking the same about the one you posted the other week though — I love Cornwall. You can also take Maddie to this one ;)

  8. 28th September 2016 / 10:31 am

    This looks TOO cute! Really love when accommodation is lovely, and when they’ve made an effort to look nice and not just be functional. I’ve actually never been to Cornwall before and feel like it’s long overdue!

    Oh my! How beautiful. It doesn’t look real it’s that gorgeous….(A bit like Hugh Jackman, really)
    You lucky thing! Well, I look forward to hearing all about your adventures. #HOMEETC

    • 4th October 2016 / 11:41 am

      Hahaha!!! Huge Ackman DEFINITELY doesn’t look real!! LOL! He’s had too much Botox! ;)

  10. 28th September 2016 / 12:35 pm

    Wow, how stunningly beautiful! This is my idea of a perfect break! xx

  11. 28th September 2016 / 12:55 pm

    Sounds almost too good to be true, I love that they have a baking box to borrow, what an amazing idea!! It looks gorgeous, I’m sure you will enjoy and I’ll look forward to reading about it when you’ve been. Cornwall is one of my favourite places to visit, just a shame that it is so far away for us xx

    • 3rd October 2016 / 4:57 pm

      It’s incredible isn’t it? Attention to detail like that is always a winner in my book!!! Can’t wait to go!!!! xx

  12. 28th September 2016 / 4:13 pm

    I absolutely love Cornwall. I have some family there and I would move there in a heartbeat if I could. These cottages look amazing. thank you for hosting #homeetc xx

    • 4th October 2016 / 11:39 am

      I agree Caroline — I don’t have family down there but I’d definitely like to move there!! It would be amazing to be near the coast! We couldn’t be any further away where we are at the moment!!

    Looks like a beautiful place to be for both children and adults. I would love to go in the spring. Wild flower meadows would be a dream to photograph.
    And somewhere we can take the dog makes it even more appealing. Sent on the link to my Husband to check out too x

    • 3rd October 2016 / 10:52 am

      It looks gorgeous doesn’t it? And I’m totally with you — the wildflowers would be amazing to photograph!! :) I’m hoping they’ll be in bloom in May!

  14. 29th September 2016 / 1:16 pm

    I’ve read this post twice now!! It sounds divine. And I love all the photos. You’re really going to have the best time. I wish we were a little closer. It would be a massive trek for us and I’m not sure I’d get through hours of ‘are we there yet?’.

    • 3rd October 2016 / 10:51 am

      It’s such a long way isn’t it? I think it took 6/7 hours the last time we went. But just looking at what there is to look forward to at the other end, really makes it worth the journey :)

  15. 29th September 2016 / 5:18 pm

    Wow, this place looks incredible. What a lovely getaway x #homeetc

  16. 29th September 2016 / 10:34 pm

    Ooh it looks perfect! How exciting. We are looking to book our next year’s holiday in Cornwall so I’ll be checking this out! xx #HomeEtc

    • 3rd October 2016 / 10:47 am

      It looks amazing doesn’t it? HOW many things to do, in one place?! You could stay for a month and still not get bored!!

  17. 30th September 2016 / 9:35 am

    Oh this looks fab. We were talking about maybe going to Cornwall this summer and this looks perfect for a family.
    Love the idea of the baking box!
    #HomeEtc

    • 3rd October 2016 / 10:44 am

      Such a great idea isn’t it? Thoughtful touches like that always make me remember a place :)

  18. 2nd October 2016 / 7:27 pm

    It looks amazing Caro and so beautiful :) I have never been but would love to go to this part of the UK. Very exciting trip indeed! xx

    • 3rd October 2016 / 10:43 am

      It really does, doesn’t it? I’m going to be doing a sun-dance in the weeks leading up to our trip!! Keeping everything crossed for some Cornish sunshine! :)

  19. 2nd October 2016 / 10:16 pm

    Looks a fab company, and I agree Cornwall is fab too – looking forward to seeing more. Thanks for hosting #homeetc

    • 3rd October 2016 / 10:21 am

      Aah thanks so much lovely!! Can’t WAIT do do my follow up post!!! :)

  20. 3rd October 2016 / 9:19 pm

    What a stunning cottage, sounds like there is loads to do there and it is very very beautiful too. We are always looking for family places to visit, so off to have a look!

    • 4th October 2016 / 11:38 am

      It’s amazing isn’t it? I can’t believe it’s got an actual soft play room!!! The boys are mega-excited about that!

  21. 4th October 2016 / 11:45 am

    This looks really lovely. We are big fans of Cornwall, my hubby is Cornish and we still visit the in-laws often. We managed almost 3 weeks there this summer. The cottages look ideal and the pictures are beautiful. Recommend Rick Stein and Chough’s bakery for the best pasties in Cornwall (from a Cornish person!). You are going to enjoy this! Thanks for hosting #HomeEtc

    • 4th October 2016 / 12:31 pm

      Aaah I LOVE messages like this with recommendations!!! SO exciting!!!! :)

  22. 4th October 2016 / 8:09 pm

    The Bavarian would have been sold on these holiday home with just the line “You can even take your dog” since the new dog is his biggest obsession these days. All holiday plans EVER now revolve around whether or not the dog may come.
    They look gorgeous. I’m sure you’ll have a wonderful holiday.

    • 21st November 2016 / 4:57 pm

      Hahaha!! This made me laugh!!!! Poor Fionnu — I can just imagine your eye roll at the question; ‘can the dog come too?’ xx
