    It is in a quiet peaceful location but easy to explore Cornwall from.The back garden is enclosed and my dog's enjoyed seeing the chickens and ducks through the fence each day. The owner Sue greeted us on arrival and recommend some lovely beaches and places to go to during our stay. Would definitely recommend An Bowji and would love to go back soon.

  • "An Bowji was a home from home and more!"

    Sue and Dusty were so welcoming and helpful, the cream tea on arrival was lovely and the raspberry jam was divine!! The little extras around the house were great and made you feel like a special guest not just a holiday maker! The location is great making all areas of North Cornwall very accessible. The conversion from the cattle shed to the fabulous cottage that it is now is simply stunning, Sue and Dusty should be very proud! It's also great for pets and our doggie Bella really enjoyed herself and especially liked the treats that were left for her!

  • "An absolute gem of a find!"

    A beautiful cottage with a superb location for so many different areas of Cornwall yet so quiet. Perfect for dog owners with a lovely morning walk around the cottage and into the fields. All the extra’s you need such as cooking equipment, ironing board, hairdryer etc. We were more than comfortable with 4 adults, two children and one dog! Definitely contact Sue before you arrive, she is so welcoming (her scones are amazing!) and has lots of information about great places to visit if you’ve never been to the area before. We will definitely be returning!
