New Year in Boscrowan again. Some people might think it is boring to keep returning to the same holiday destination. This might be true if the destination is boring and the comforts are few. The thing about return visits to Boscrowan is the certainty. After a hard year of work and travel, I don't want to worry about where I go on holiday, I want to KNOW that everything will be as I require it, so I can relax the second we walk through the door.
Boscrowan never fails. Standards of everything are high high high, and for the repeat visitor, there is always some new, subtle improvement. This is an establishment which never stops thinking about how to delight their visitors, so they do. I am delighted.
Our arrival was delayed because of terrible driving conditions, so this deprived us of one day in the place where we could happily have spent a month. We stayed in Ring and Thimble - a spacious, luxurious, warm and delightful cottage for two. The owner had put an enormous amount of thought and care into the first class furnishings, and explained how everything worked very clearly. Wonderful bed and bath.
We were delighted with the location, easy access to north and south coasts, loads of helpful information, and delightful walks from the cottage. The dogs were friendly too! It was not surprising that the guest book showed many people making return visits, I think some have got into the teens already. We hope to go back again for sure.
We had a long weekend in Peace and Plenty cottage. We were given a warm welcome and made to feel at ease as soon as we arrived. The decor and furnishings are lovely and it all felt very comfortable. It has a very well equipped kitchen complete with a bread making machine.
We were impressed by the use of 'green' practices at the farm and accommodation - this seems quite unusual and they've won awards for this.
The location is excellent. It is very peaceful indeed but yet close to Penzance, about a 5 minute drive. Beautiful scenery and beaches are nearby and we'd recommend a drive to Sennen. We visit family in the area twice a year and are glad that we've finally found somewhere we can keep going back to.
