  • "Thanks again for a great cottage and superb service."

    Everything was 100% top drawer and it was very easy for us to have a great time. We are already discussing next year!

  • "Mill House is perfect I every way!"

    Beautifully presented rooms, spacious and with everything you may need for your holiday. Beds are very comfortable and the hot tub great at end of a day of walking- it now has a gazebo over it which was great on the kne night it rained! Owners could not do enough, texting during week to see if there was anything we needed. We were able to see the other properties on the site too, all to same excellent standard. Would highly recommend Boskensoe Barns!

  • "We loved The Barn."

    Its was the best equipped holiday home we have ever rented, and by far the most luxurious and comfortable. The design decor and furnishings had been well thought out and we had a great stay marred only by the smoke alarms going off for the last 2 nights, which disturbed us all. Especially as the last night they went off twice. Fault on the system. I emailed Bridget at Boskensoe barns twice but have had no feedback. I hope this has been picked up for the next occupants.

    Unfortunately I have only just come across this feedback about the smoke alarms. I have just checked my emails and there seems to be no messages about this. I am not sure what happened to them. I am very sorry this happened we are normally very quick to respond to any issues. Apologies again Bridget Property Owner

  • "This was our second stay at the property & we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it."

    A Beautiful old barn, renovated to an extremely high standard with quality fixtures & fittings. Comfy beds, large modern bathrooms, spotlessly clean overall. Lovely private garden space, excellent well looked after hot tub, great for star gazing ! Thankyou for the generous welcome pack, we loved the Cornish produce (and your local village deli store). The use of the electric charge point was also a massive plus. The only minus is the dog owners in other cottages that still insist on letting their dogs 'roam' on the shared area, despite there now being a dedicated dog exercise area. It meant we couldn't let our young family use that same common area.

  • "As four former female schoolfriends (now of a certain age) we stayed in Mill House at the beginning of December for a pretend Christmas."

    The accommodation exceeded our expectations. The house is well equipped and set to a high standard. Even during Covid times there wasn't anything more we needed than was provided. The open plan layout upstairs meant that even if one of us was cooking, we didn't feel on our own and could easily join in with the others. We only met the owner, Bridget, once due to Covid restrictions, but felt that if we had any issues we could easily have spoken to her (she lives opposite Mill House) and it would have been dealt with. Bridget even, with our permission, entered the property to put up a wonderful Christmas tree whilst we were out one day which made the week even more special. Mill House is in a gated complex with three other properties and is well situated, being just outside Falmouth, for easy access to most of the south west end of Cornwall for getting out and about. The village has a pub serving homely food, an excellent general shop and post office, a coffee house and a lovely gift shop. All within easy walking distance. There is adequate car parking on the complex and is away from outside the properties to give extra privacy to guests. The car parking area has an electric vehicle charging point which was a huge relief to one of our party. The weather was slightly against us for our week, but we did manage one early evening to make use of the hot tub to watch the sun go down! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Mill House and as such we have booked to go back again in December this year!

    Wow! Thank you for your wonderful review. Property Owner

    Everything was more than we could ask for. The Mill House is one of 4 barns inside the property with loads of parking spaces. When we get inside the house everything was so clean and organise and the information book was really helpful as it contain from instructions about how to work appliances to information about places to eat nearby. It has a cozy fire place and they already provided some firewood, you can ask for more for a price but we already had enough on our stay. They had an all surround sound with a built in Ipad, they also have TVs in each bedroom. The hot tub was located outside - and all I can say is that we enjoyed that one. The kitchen has everything we could ask for, there utensils and baking stuff available. The owner Bridget, we met briefly but not seen her again but she was always one message away. It was really good as we enjoyed our privacy. We couldn’t asks for more, these gave us the feeling of self-catering accommodation but also felt like we’re staying in a hotel. We would recommend this barn to anyone.

  • "Being shown how to use certain facilities would have been useful."

    I have worked and managed rentals and have always met and greeted all Customers and gone through all electrical appliances. The accommodation was very nice and spacious, but not sure it was worth the money. The location wasn't very good. Our plan was to have as little driving as possible, sadly, that wasn't the case. Neighbours dog barking most of the day was an annoyance, very surprised people would take their dogs, just to be shut in all day. I find it difficult to recommend this holiday as the local areas were in short supply..... One pub, one small grocery store/post office.

    The first guest arrived 4 hours early whilst the property was being prepared. An offer to show him around the property was declined. The location of the property and distance to facilities is clearly listed on the website. The owners regret that this wasn't suitable for your party. They have otherwise only top marks from other guests. Property Owner

    Beautifully decorated to an extremely high standard; it feels modern but comfortably cosy at the same time. We visited for a week as 5 adults and 3 kids aged between 2-6. The cottage has a gate for the stairs both at the top and bottom which was handy with little ones. The kids especially loved the garden which was private and not overlooked, the adults enjoyed the hot tub, beautiful kitchen and the real log fire. The cottage is in good location, walking distance to a little village and only 10 minutes drive to Falmouth town and beach. Plenty to do nearby, and even when you are staying at the cottage there is the communal play park for the kids to enjoy. The hosts were very friendly and there to help if needed. We had a problem with the Ipads locking and the gentleman came over immediately to fix it. You can really tell they put in lots of thought with the welcome tray of goodies including sweeties, jam and biscuits from the local area which I found a nice touch. A few tiny possible improvments I will mention just for the future... a couple more bin bags and laundry liquid pods would be ideal especially when 8 people are staying as they ran out half way through the week and filling up the salt and pepper shakers would also be good as it's just one of those things you do not think to bring or buy when there. Other than that, it was absolutely amazing and we can't wait to return.
