Boswednack Manor is set in three acres of organic meadows, orchards and vegetable and flower gardens. The soil is managed in a way that maximizes the floral and fauna diversity. The owners also keep chickens. The house is decorated with Indian and Turkish wall hangings, paintings and Chinese scrolls. It has a large carpeted barn space suitable for group events. The lounge has a piano and a varied library, and there is also a wonderful plant-filled conservatory. The house has a view on the splendid Gurnards Head.
There are two en suite double rooms, one family, one twin and one single room. Vegetarian breakfast is served. There is also a tastefully restored 15th century cottage that sleeps four and a barn that can be used for groups. Hot water is provided by solar powered panels.
Liz and Alex have plotted several hiking routes to get acquainted with the archaeological remnants, flora and fauna of this part of Cornwall. The 15th century church of Zennor has a chair carved with a mermaid as is written in the local legend. Two nearby pubs, The Tinner’s Arms and The Gurnards Head serve evening meals. The Wayside Museum in Zennor gives you a view of the local history. The villages of St Ives, Penzance and Marazion, with their sandy beaches, gardens, restaurants, shops, art galleries and summer festivals, are all a short bus journey away (about 10 km).
