  • "The perfect staycation for our family."

    It is clear to see why The Granary at Boskensoe Barns is 5*. Exploring the surrounding areas of Mawnan Smith has now made it one of our favourite places to visit, so much so we are looking to come back!

    Having stayed at many other holiday properties over the years, this place is in a league of its own. This property hits 5 stars with ease, attention to detail, wonderful setting, comfort, luxury, what’s not to love! Already planning our return

  • "These is one of a very few properties that we have returned to."

    The standards are very high, we love the comfortable beds & sofa. The well equipped kitchen, the fires inside and out and lastly the large hot tub and outdoor shower.

  • "We’ve stayed at a lot of holiday properties over the recent years and this one is by far the absolute BEST!"

    The owners thought of everything, honestly everything! The property was clean, the little welcome hamper was beautiful, it was nice to see local Cornish businesses being used for the soaps, shower gel, even the loaf of bread. Would we stay here again? Absolutely! 100% Thank you ever so much! My only recommendation would be to have some hooks outside near the hot tub for the robes and extra lighting near/on route to the hot tub.

  • "The Granary at Boskensoe Barns is just a place of dreams!"

    Just as good as the pictures if not better. When we arrived there was a little welcome tray with a whole array of lovely treats. Tea/coffee and milk was onsite too which is a really nice touch. Being able to use the electric charger for our car was brilliant, the ipads around the house for music was just amazing and the hot tub was huge and wonderful. Then even more so the bed was super comfortable and the bedding just of such luxury quality! We slept so well. Overall we didn't want to leave at all, we had a great stay and will definitely be back! Location wise was great too. It was a short walk into Mawnan Smith which has a great local shop, a brilliant coffee shop and a great pub. Then only 15minutes away from Falmouth, and the beaches around so close to the place are gorgeous. 100% recommend that you book to stay here!

  • "Wow, wow, wow, this is luxury, stunning and super comfortable accommodation!"

    We have just returned from a wonderful week staying in the Granary at Boskensoe. It ticked all the boxes for us parents, our 9-year-old son and his grandmother. Firstly, the two-storey converted barn is spacious, beautifully appointed and decorated, and clean! It has comfy beds, plenty of fluffy towels and bathrobes! It has all the mod cons (Neff appliances, ovens, dishwasher, Bosch washer and dryer, Samsung Smart TVs in every room, and built-in sound system). The kitchen and utility contain everything you could need to cook, bake and do laundry. Maybe the only things missing were a pair of oven gloves and a coffee espresso machine. We made great use of the Webber BBQ, and daily use of the large hot tub, which was sparkling clean (the owner changes the water and cleans between rentals). Plus we could charge our electric car FOC. The Granary is situated on a working farm (very little noise, a bit of cow mooing), with stunning views across the Cornish countryside. The village offers a grocery shop, pub, coffee shop and a gorgeous gifts and interiors shop called the Oyster Catcher. Nearby, there is so much to see and do. We went out exploring every day to new locations - travelling between 5 - 30 minutes. There are also plenty of great places to eat, such as The Cove at Maenporth and Hocked on the Rocks at Swanpool, both of which are minutes away. We would love to return and have another wonderful stay. This was our 4th Cornish holiday in a rental property, and The Granary has been by far the best place we have stayed. It really was just perfect.

    We’ve had the best week ever in Cornwall and made even better with the stay at The Granary. We didn’t want to leave! The house was spotless, comfortable and warm. The music system throughout the property was a real bonus! Kitchen well equipped and the welcome hamper was a real treat (bread, butter, milk, jam, biscuits, elderflower drink) Highly recommended 10/10

    The granary is a modern barn conversion finished to a very high standard. Very clean with very comfortable king sized beds in both bedrooms. Loved the hot tub spent quite a bit of time in it. Some wonderful walks on the coastal path which is walkable from the barn. Just a short 15min walk to the local pub and we'll stocked shop. The Ferryboat in at Helford passage is well worth a visit, lovely food on the banks of the estuary. Highly recommended holiday accommodation. Many thanks.
