A beautiful cottage in the best location you could find.

This is the most beautiful spot. The views out to sea and along the coast are stunning. The view from the top of the Carn behind the farm is also spectacular. Bob and Liz are fantastic hosts. We enjoyed the quiet on the farm and meeting the animals. We'd love to come back!

An ancient healing timeless spiritual place I have had the pleasure to stay in 5 times ! I have already booked again for 2020. My most favourite place on earth - and I have travelled the world.

It is also an honour to stay on a working farm and experience how hard our farmers and their animals work to produce high quality organic food - the cows and sheep here lead happy contented lives. Buy British!

Bosigran farm is honest and genuine - not a clinical hotel environment but full of farm noise and smells -animals, dogs, tractors - and lots of cow pats! However, also the "peace and tranquility "of the countryside with the wonderful lavender sea, emerald green fields and constellation-filled night skies and minimal human impact. Truly paradise.

I hope Polmina stays the same in the guardianship of the farmers Bob and Liz.

A little piece of paradise in a secluded and quiet place on a farm overviewing the Atlantic Ocean, green meadows with grasing cattle and sheep.

• I have been coming twice a year since 2003! A lot of that is about “location, location, location”. • It’s my very favourite place, having been to lots of other cottages (of all sizes) • Why? Utterly enchanting both inside and out – and a great welcome – nothing is too much trouble
• Stunning context – history - utter timelessness – look down from the windows on tiny, dry-stone walled fields with sheep and cattle, lambs and calves – views on 2 sides straight down to the sea – and on amazing sunsets • Cottage is on inland “church path” and coast path just a few fields down the hill – moorland across the road – so brilliant walks, from the door • Inside: very spacious, lofty, calm, tasteful and comfortable, whilst being suitably rustic with stripped pine, beiges and greys – loving attention to detail – and a bath for a good soak after a long walk
• It heals you, stills you, changes you

Well, I think you've said it all, and we couldn't agree more! You must be one of Polmina's most regular guests, and we do hope that you will continue to visit and enjoy this special place for many more years to come. Tanya, Customer Support

We loved our stay at Polmina. It’s a gorgeous, cosy barn next to the sea in a very special location. A bolt hole for a real ‘get away from it all’ holiday.

October 2018

A very relaxing place to stay with very friendly owners too. I would recommend this cottage for anyone looking for piece and tranquillity. This was the nicest place I have ever stayed.

September 2018

We love Polmina. We spend the year waiting to return. A magical place.

August 2018

What a wonderfully beautiful little hideaway in stunning scenery. The owners were so welcoming and we particularly fell in love with Freddie (Golden Retriever). This escape was for our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect or special. Within easy driving distance of all the local tourist attractions, pubs and amenities but far enough away to feel completely secluded. We cannot wait to return.

July 2018

This is a place that I would love to keep a secret - but if you are looking for somewhere you are able to shut off the worldly stuff and just be one with the sea, moors and nature - this is the place to go.

July 2018

Wonderful place to get away from it all. So peaceful and serene with amazing view of the sunset over the sea. The location is ideal for exploring north and south Cornwall and to escape the tourist hordes at the end of the day. The barn has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the very generous welcome hamper was much appreciated. Great place!

May 2018

Polmina is a magical place. It is one of those compelling places which draws you back again and again - a sense of place and somewhere to enjoy the beauty of the landscape and the friendliness of the welcome.

April 2018

A lovely place to retreat to for a week, whether single or as a couple. Great rugged Cornish location, with cliff or sea walks straight from the door. I love a firm bed, but it may not suit some, even if it is good for your back.

November 2017

A truly beautiful place to stay

October 2017

Polmina provides the perfect get-away from a hectic life-style

A little piece of heaven.

Fantastic location, drive to the farm -cottage is awkward for cars as the track is uneven and stones are sharp, I got a puncture as a result, but cottage and location is extremely beautiful. Totally relaxing break.

July 2016

Polmina is our favourite place to stay! This has been our fourth visit. The beauty of its surroundings is breathtaking and we always feel that it is the perfect retreat. We always feel welcome and can't wait for our next visit.

April 2016

Very well thought out, lovely little touches to make Loved the farm animals, the little lambs springing around and the welcome from the little 'guard dog' every time we came in from a day out. Would love to stay there again!

December 2015

The owner was really helpful, there was a fantastic folder with everything you needed to know about the local area places to eat etc. The Cottage has a very relaxing atmosphere and is in excellent condition. We had a truly wonderful stay at Polmina. I would recommend it to anyone.

September 2015

Superb situation. Lovely and peaceful. Surrounded by wonderful coastal and country views. We also loved the close proximity of the farm animals. The cottage was bright and cosy, full of character and was everything we had hoped for. We shall certainly return.

September 2015

Polmina is a delight. A little piece of heaven. The perfect place to relax and unwind.

Great cottage at a fantastic ocean view location.

July 2015

A stunning location with gorgeous views, and the cottage itself is a lovely oasis of tranquility and cosiness. A retreat away from the cares of the world. Highly recommended and definitely a repeat visit!

Beautiful location but you will need a car to get around

June 2015

An ideal bolt hole for a stressed couple to get away from it all. Liked having no wi-fi

May 2015

Polmina is a truly wonderful place. It has a timeless quality. The coast and countryside are unique and beautiful. It is magical and never ceases to inspire - can't wait for our next visit.

December 2014

Extremely happy with Polmina. Was a perfect get away. Stunning views and lovely animals on the farm also! Would definitely return.

October 2014

Polmina is beautiful, the photos don't do it justice.

September 2014

Wonderful location - spent hours watching the sea and the sky. Sunny days, spectacular sunsets, starry nights. Sitting at the table in the garden ~ if you face the sea ~ it's like there's nothing but you and the universe. Just beautiful. Friendly and helpful owners, onsite entertainment from the animals {especially the goat!}, lots to do in the area ~ we were very reluctant to leave and we are most eager to return!

July 2014

Highly recommended: lovely accommodation in a fantastic location!

July 2014

Idyllic, peaceful retreat with a sea view we will remember forever! The cottage was welcoming and cosy and we immediately felt at home. We loved our week here and were sad to leave.

June 2014

A wonderful place to be for a happy couple like us. Additionally,hosts, people, surroundings, weather and everything else were wonderful. A very cosy home for a too short holiday.

May 2014

Our second stay at Polmina was equally magical. It is indeed a special place surrounded by the most beautiful countryside and amazing coastline. We were made to feel very welcome and can't wait for our next visit.

May 2014

It has been such a wonderful stay for us. The cottage and the place were so lovely. Every detail of the house was just beautiful. We had such great views - due to the great weather - from the cottage. We loved the animals around the cottage. We´d love to come back one day.

April 2014

Polmina is ideally situated between St. Ives and St. Just and is the perfect getaway. Liz and her husband went out of their way to be helpful with information about the area. We discovered that Liz is qualified in aroma therapy massage of which my wife took advantage. It would be a nice treat after a hard days walking! Perhaps it's worth including in the listing!

We had a thoroughly good time and will be back!

February 2014

If you are looking for a getaway from the hustle of life you could not do better than to spend some time at Polmina. To wake up and look out of the window to the sight and sound of the sea was breathtaking. Its location allows you to explore the surrounding area with ease. We had a relaxing and enjoyable week - the only problem was we didn't want to leave and judging by the visitors book we were not alone. We would recommend this property it was exactly as stated and much, much more.

November 2013

Polmina offered us everything we needed - a beautiful home for us to return to after our days out exploring - the perfect base to explore deepest Cornwall.

August 2013

If you're looking for somewhere quiet and peaceful with views of the sea and of animals (cows, sheep, chickens and a goat) happily mooching around - then this is the perfect place for you. It is just a few miles from St Ives, Penzance, St Michael's Mount and the little airport which will whisk you away to the Scilly Isles for the day (only a 15 minute flight!). Many guests have been back multiple times - and we will definitely return next year.

June 2013

It was beautiful. It lived up to its description and photos

May 2013

Magical place to stay. Friendly owner and perfect setting. It was not luxurious but was perfectly comfortable and well equipped, fully meeting our expectations. Wonderful for coastal walking and full of interest in location. Can't wait for next visit.
