  • "What a lovely little find after 12 years of visiting Cornwall we think this is the best yet."

    Location ideal for us, spent most days on the beach, Porthtowan and Holywell, both within easy driving distance. 15 min drive to Mount Hawke Skate Park and easy access to Truro and Falmouth. We enjoyed local walks direct from the property and always looked forward to going back to the property after a busy day. Everything we needed was at the property with nice open plan living and very clean. We wouldn't hesitate in returning. Thank you to Ju and Pete for making us feel so welcome.

    Hello Helen! Many thanks for your positive comments. We are delighted to hear that you consider us to be the best property you have visited in 12 years of Cornish holidays. Your comments make us appreciate that all our hard work is worthwhile. You will be made most welcome should you wish to return. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic stay, from start to finish."

    Nothing was too much trouble, they went above and beyond to make us comfortable. The cottage is so well equipped, it has everything you could possibly need, it was like home from home! The grounds are beautiful, with three fields to explore and they shared their knowledge of which were the best beaches and local points of interest. Would definitely recommend, it was 5* in every way!

    Thank you Gill! It was good to meet you and to hear you so enjoyed your break with us. You certainly chose some excellent weather! Thank you for leaving Bowji clean and tidy. Enjoy the rest of the summer. Property Owner

  • "We enjoyed a lovely week at Mynheer Bowji."

    The property is very well equipped and the friendly owners have put great thought and effort into ensuring that visitors have a very comfortable stay. It is well located to visit all the lovely sites of west Cornwall, an area we had not visited before. The local pub (The Star at Vogue), just a couple of minutes drive away, offers good food at very reasonable prices. We enjoyed Sunday carvery lunch and several evening meals there, also a very good evening meal at The Treleigh Arms just a few miles further away. We would thoroughly recommend Bowji and if visiting the area in future would look to stay here again.

    Thank you for such positive feedback. We strive to provide clean, welcoming and comfortable properties so it is reassuring to know that our efforts are working! It was a pleasure to meet you I have passed on your lovely comments about the Star Inn at Vogue. Again, these were well received so thanks again. Property Owner

  • "I could not fault Mynheer Farm Bowji and would highly recommend this cottage and Mynheer Farm Barn, which is the proprietors Ju and Pete's other cottage and is opposite Bowji."

    The cottage was EXCEPTIONALLY clean and it had all the facilities that you could ask for and more, it was beautifully decorated to a high standard and the kitchen was fully equipped with good quality equipment. There was a lovely log burner in the lounge but it wasn't cold enough to light it up but I can imagine sitting there cosying up with it burning away on a cold autumn or winters evening with a glass of wine etc. Actually Christmas or New Year would be lovely spent at Bowji. 3 days prior to our holiday I called Ju ( as requested by Sykes Cottages ) who was extremely friendly and discussed everything with me. I explained that my Mother In Law had restricted mobility and asked if we could have parking as close to the cottage as possible, they couldn't have been anymore accommodating for us. We had a warm and friendly greeting from Ju and Pete on our arrival and they had laid on a scrumptious cream tea in the cottage for us. The location of Mynheer Farm is perfect for accessing a good proportion of Cornwall, with Lands End, north and south Cornwall coast lines within easy reach. We had a weeks holiday and went to Newquay, Padstow, Port Isaac, Falmouth, Lands End, Penzance, St Ives and we meet up with family for a superb meal at the Halfway House Pub in Liskgeard one evening (well worth the 40 minute drive). There is still plenty of things to for us to explore in Cornwall and we will definitely be booking either Mynheer Farm Bowji or Barn when we do.

We hope to return to this part of Cornwall again and would have no hesitation in staying with Ju and Pete again. First class.

  • "Very nice accommodation which we chose because of its convenient location for our needs."

    We stayed The first week of March 2020 The first thing one notices of course is that the Bowji has convenient parking next to it and off the road. Through the front door everything inside was neat and tidy, all the fittings are of good quality and the kitchen quite well supplied with everything needed for holiday cooking. Both bedrooms are of a good size the bedding spotless, there is storage and hanging for clothing and their adjacent on suite shower rooms whilst compact are big enough. Both showers are of a good size and comfortable to use with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The kitchen and living space is nicely spacious with separate areas for dining and relaxing. There is a sound system provided and the tv has a DVD player that the owners provide a selection of DVDs for. The central heating is efficient and whilst we were there quite sufficient. A nice quality wood burner is installed with a basket of wood provided should one need more warmth and ambiance. Overall we were very happy with our stay and would not hesitate to comeback thank you Pete and Ju. Nick and Mary Hammond

The cottage is in a good location to explore Cornwall and we found most places we wanted to visit about 20-30 minutes drive away!
