About Bosveal

Part of a large country house, brimming with original features and views over the Helford River.

With views straight down to the gentle coast and pine tree woodlands of the Helford River, Bosveal is the perfect place for a week of bliss. It occupies the main, central part of Bosloe House, a striking Arts and Crafts style manor, and is brimming with luxury décor and period features. Wood panelled walls, a grand dining room and two log-burning stoves add to its charm, while its six bedrooms make it the perfect get-together pad. It also has an interconnecting door with neighbouring apartment, Court, enabling larger parties of up to 20 to holiday together. 

You’ll be a few minutes’ stroll from the small and south-facing beach at Durgan. It’s a mixture of pebbles, rockpools and sand and its gentle waters make it perfect for canoeing or kayaking. As a guest you’re invited to explore the nearby exotic gardens of Glendurgan, with its jungle-like valleys and wildflower slopes. 

Further afield, the pretty harbour town of Falmouth is just a 20 minutes’ drive. Or if you prefer to walk, take the 9.9 mile trail from Helford to Falmouth along the South West Coast Path. Enjoy exploring this historic town with its range of quaint shops, café’s and traditional fisherman’s inns.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
