  • "This property exceeded our expectations."

    Well equipped and very comfy. The hot tub and garden was lovely and very peaceful. You would not have known we were on a working farm. If we come to this part of Cornwall again we would not hesitate to stay here. Plus the welcome scones jam and cream were fantastic. Thankyou to Margaret and your team

  • "Borah lodge is so lovely."

    We wished we had longer. Really well equipped perfect for couples. The only thing we found disappointing in the comfort of the bed. We just feel the mattress could be updated. Other than than we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

  • "We had the best time here, very relaxing and lots to do."

    Just wanted to mention that the window in the living room next to the TV seemed to leak when it was raining, just wanted to mention so it can be fixed! Other than that all good things to say.

  • "Fabulous lodge in an ideal setting for a couple looking for a relaxing holiday with dogs."

    Cream tea and flowers to greet us on our arrival a lovely touch. Location close to many of the local attractions. Now if someone could just do something about the route ( traffic appalling) everything would be perfect.

    Would recommend Borah Lodge to all couples wanting peace and quiet but good to use as a base as wee did.

  • "The lodge was ready for us when we arrived, even though we were slightly earlier than planned."

    Everything was very clean and had clearly been thoroughly disinfected prior to our arrival. There were delicious scones, jam and cream waiting for us, along with fresh milk, which were very welcome touches above and beyond what we would have expected. The hot-tub was superb, every bit as enjoyable as anticipated, and the cover meant that we did not have to worry about the weather when we were making use of it! Would definitely recommend this lodge to anyone, fantastic place to stay, great location, everything was in very easy reach!

  • "What a lovely holiday we had in this gorgeous little lodge, we were greeted with scones, jam, cream and milk in the fridge which was lovely, great views, great location, immaculate condition, had everything we needed the hot tub and washing machine were a bonus!"

    The lodge isn’t to far away from Penzance which has quite a few shops an arcade, boat trips, and about 30 mins drive from Stives, A great shopping place called Truro with Superdrug, super dry etc, which is about an hour which isn’t bad at all, There are plenty of places to go within driving distance! We will definitely be back! Sad to be home back to reality :( thank you so much to the owners for our perfect stay.

  • "Borah Lodge was a very pleasant stay."

    The lodge was very clean, comfortable and very quiet. The addition of the Hot Tub made it really relaxing after a day of exploring the area. The views are very nice and it is in a very nice area. Close to Lamorna Cove, which is a very nice and pleasant Cove, wonderful for relaxing. The friendly Lamorna Pottery nearby offered a nice place for a cream tea or a light meal. Overall it has been a very pleasant and relaxing stay. We would highly recommended this property.

  • "Borah Lodge was absolutely wonderful."

    Everything we wanted and needed! The lodge is set on a working farm, is tucked away in the corner and feels private. It’s exactly as described and was cosy and warm. On arrival, the lodge was extremely clean and tidy. There was scones, jam and cream waiting for us and they were delicious! Harvey and coco, the farm spaniels are so sweet and friendly, we loved having them around to visit us! The hot tub is so relaxing and was much needed after a long day walking across the coastal paths. The lodge is situated in the best place possible for exploring south Cornwall. Mousehole and Penzance are about 15 mins away and Newlyn is a 5/10 min drive. It’s the best place for fish and chips! St Ives is about 30 mins away and the amazing Kynance Cove and Lizard point is an hour away but well worth the drive. If you have a dog, Porth Kidney is the best beach around Highly recommend the Lake Side Cabin Cafe in Lelant for cream tea. The biggest and best cream tea and cakes we have ever had!! Overall, great location, relaxing, clean, tidy and exactly what we needed. Thank you!

  • "The lodge was a small piece of heaven, well equipped, spotlessly clean, extremely comfy chairs and the bed was also comfy."

    It’s well situated to get around local attractions and peaceful when you get back. We took dressing gowns with us to walk to and from the hot tub, which was perfect to sit in at the end of the day. The dogs enjoyed walking down to the cove, to the local standing stones and some of the right of ways available. We will definitely come back, also thank you for the milk and cream teas waiting for us when we got there. Can not recommend this lodge enough.

  • "Whole lodge could do with a deep clean dust under bed on lamps in bedroom Window frames plug sockets quite dirty Could do with couple casserole dishes in kitchen also a plastic jug Slightly misleading on write up states fridge freezer fridge is in kitchen."

    Freezer in out building. So if raining bad get soaked going to it needs bit more outside lighting for when going to hot tub as have to go down steps which can be slippery Also could do with plastic glasses to use outside or in hot tub Very remote so if you want a quiet time which we did it’s ideal

  • "We had such a lovely break, perfect location for walking the coast path."

    However beware the walk to mousehole is over boulders and if to try to go to the lighthouse dont go via Lamorna unless you are less than a size 14 as you wont get through those boulders!! Instead go via the fields! There was a cream tea waiting for us, which after a long drive was wonderful! The only thing that would have been better for us would have been an enclosed garden as our rescue dogs are not well trained!. However that will not put us off going again, fingers crossed, next year

  • "We had a lovely time at Borah Lodge."

    The hosts were there if we needed them but left us to our own devices. The lodge itself is everything we expected and more. The bed was the most comfortable we’ve ever experienced away from home, the lodge was beautifully warm, the hot tub awesome as it is undercover so when it rained we could still use it. We were met with fresh scones, jam, cream, tea, coffee, sugar and milk which was very thoughtful and much appreciated. When booking this lodge I did have reservations about the two chairs in the front room instead of a sofa as my husband and I like to cuddle up when watching TV. We needn’t have worried as the chairs were very comfortable and when pushed together we still felt close. Tv in the front room and bedroom were a good size and we moved the DVD player from front room to the bedroom when needed. Only draw back is that most things are a good 40 mins to hour drive away but we knew that when we booked. Fantastic lodge in every way!

  • "Excellent choice."

    Margaret from Borah lodge rang me before we travelled to say that the hot tub was awaiting a part and wasn’t expected for 10 days. However they had delivery of a Lay-z spa to replace it and gave us the option to have a look online at the model they had purchased , and to cancel if we weren’t happy. The replacement was excellent so we had the hot tub we wanted and a wonderful week. Lovely family, very friendly and helpful.

    With the silence of the surroundings and the sense of seclusion within the precincts of the cottage it was possible to quite exclude the 21st century and retreat into a peace and quiet which is not easily found.

The property

Mousehole 3.8 miles.

Just over a mile from superb Lamorna Cove Beach, snuggled in a countryside idyll in the sleeping village of St Buryan, Borah Lodge makes the perfect retreat for couples seeking coastal and rural adventures.

Set on the owner’s farm alongside a small clutch of holiday havens, this timber clad dwelling offers homely and welcoming accommodation for a relaxing and romantic break.

The living space is all on the ground floor, with an open-plan sitting area boasting exposed beams, wooden flooring and a dining table for two, a cosy social space for foodie gatherings.

The little galley kitchen has all you need, and the washing machine is tucked away in the shed, solely for your use.

The double bedroom oozes country comfort, with a TV, duel aspect windows with country views and a smart en-suite shower room to the side.

Take a dip in your own private hot tub, screened and boasting a lawned garden and breath-taking Cornish views, with a glass of your favourite tipple.

Dine alfresco with cream teas and barbecues after a day of fun at the coast or exploring the countryside.

The local pub is a mere ten minute stroll away and the coast is a twenty minute walk.

Lamorna Cove has a little sandy beach when the tide is out, a lovely spot for swimming or scuba diving and lies on the southwest coast path between the beautiful sands of Porthcurno Beach and the quaint fishing village of Mousehole, with art galleries and traditional inns huddled around the quay.

Don’t forget to visit the Lamorna Cove Café, with famed local crab and mackerel on the menu.

Newlyn is four miles away with busy port, and a little further around Mounts Bay is Penzance with all the town amenities, promenade and Jubilee sea-pool.

Head west for a 20 minute drive and Land’s End makes a wonderful day out with rugged coastline and panoramic seascapes guaranteed from the scenic coast path.

Hire cycles, surf gear, or go kayaking.

Whatever activity you do, Borah Lodge is one to return to again and again for your all-year-round escape.
