About The Apple Store, formerly The Bothy

A tiny but well-equipped cottage nestling in a large country estate, above the Helford River.

Who knew a former potting shed could make such a beautiful holiday cottage? The 19th-century stone and slate cottage hides amongst the trees, where views of the Helford River peek through a grassy glade. Inside reveals stylish interior with high ceilings and an open-plan living, kitchen and dining area. 

The Apple Store sits in the 11-acre estate of Bosloe, just above the Helford River and half a mile east of Durgan. Sheltered from Atlantic gales, you’ll be in one of the mildest corners of the country, with the south-facing beach at Durgan village within walking distance. 

The lovely town of Falmouth is only a 20 minute drive away. If you want to travel further afield, the market town of Helston is 16 miles west of the cottage. Even further west is Penrose, a wooded area and open parkland around Cornwall’s largest natural lake, Loe Pool. You’ll also find a sandy stretch of coastline here too, so don’t forget your swimmers.

About the Acorn rating

To help find the best cottage for you, we have created our own quality rating system for our holiday cottages called the Acorn rating. Ranging from 1-5 Acorns, the rating gives you an indication of a property’s facilities, fixtures and fittings, with five being the highest quality level. The Acorn rating is not connected to any other industry rating system that may be used for holiday cottages and is only to be used as a guide that covers location, style of interior and the facilities you may be looking for. We do not set our cottage pricing based on the Acorn rating we have given a cottage as all our cottages are of an individual nature. Therefore, we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice. In addition, some of our cottages are curated to be sympathetic to their time period. This means that they might not have all of the aspects of modern living, but impress in so many other ways.

1 Acorn: simple living accommodation with basic furniture and fixtures fit for purpose and clean. Running water and a toilet are provided. There could be some limitations to heating and washing facilities – details of these will be stated clearly on the cottage's webpage. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied with a few exceptions, which are again clearly stated). Facilities for basic catering and living are provided. In general, a 1 Acorn cottage does not have WiFi.

2 Acorn: a mid-quality range of furniture and fittings. Bathroom facilities are basic or there may be a high number of guests to bathroom ratio depending on the size of the cottage. Very few 2 Acorn cottages have WiFi and the kitchen white goods and washing facilities are basic. Bedding, linen and towels are supplied in all 2-5 Acorn cottages.

3 Acorn: a good, standard offer. Generally it is correctly proportioned for the number of guests but could have a few compromises, for example a small kitchen, or a lower bathroom to guest ratio. The variety of white goods available will be better than a 2 Acorn cottage.

4 Acorn: these cottages have more premium furniture, fittings and lighting. Additionally the ratio of bathrooms to guests is likely to be higher, and the bathrooms would be more likely to have separate and spacious showers instead of showers over baths.

5 Acorn: a luxury accommodation offer with very few limiting factors. This is the highest offer available. It is well-equipped and has spacious facilities throughout the cottage or is set within an extraordinary location or building. The furniture is of a high standard, and has real comfort for modern living.
