A lovely location and a deceptively large accommodation
Mr Smith September 2021
Our fourth visit and we hope to return next year. An excellent spacious cottage, which has everything you could need. Within a short walk of Cape Cornwall which is a beautiful and relaxing place.
Mrs Nickson July 2021
We had an absolutely wonderful (much needed) week. Five of us including 3 older teenagers and plenty of space for everyone. We loved the luxury of walking down to Cape Cornwall, we were very lucky to spend a week at the very comfortable Bowjey.
Thanks to Ann for keeping us up to date with timings and the lovely welcome basket.
Miss Dobson June 2021
Cottage is in a great location if you love walking. Really well equipped and nicely furnished for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.
Mr Lewis June 2021
This is a stunning property in the perfect location. We will definitely be returning!!!!
Mr Ashton June 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Bowjey and wish we had booked a second! Very spacious & comfortable cottage, ideally placed to explore that part of Cornwall. 5 people would be very comfortable, with 2 double and 1 single bedrooms, large lounge & 2 eating areas. Make sure to visit St Just & get a pasty fresh out of the oven at McFaddens, the butcher, you won't find a better one!
Mrs McAndrew May 2021
Our stay at The Bowjey far exceeded our expectations. We are a family of five with 3 older children. Much more spacious than the description and pictures let on. So clean, we could walk around bare foot. We had the most delightful week and totally loved the stunning, unique location. Everything you could need was to hand. The fresh tulips were a lovely and very welcome touch. The front garden is as described a secluded sun trap. A good range of lovely pubs and cafes in St Just, just a short walk away, but a dark walk on return at night...take a torch! Thank you so much for a fantastic week. I wouldn't hesitate to come back or to recommend to others.
Dr Griffiths October 2020
A cosy, warm and comfortable cottage, ideal for my family group of five.
Mr Boddey September 2020
Excellent as usual. I’ve forgotten how many times we’ve been to this cottage, but you can’t beat the location and it’s always cosy and clean. Good work by all given the current circumstances. The food at the Golf Club was excellent as usual. Just a great place to try and forget everything that’s going on at the moment for a few days. Will probably be back again.
Mr Nash July 2020
This is our second time staying here and we love the location and the property. There are numerous walks in the adjacent valleys, with abundant flora resulting from the micro-climates that exist there. We saw a variety of bird species and eels at Priest's Cove.
Mr Boddey October 2019
Clean and homely as usual. It's like being at home, but by the sea. You still can't beat the location, near St Just with most of what you need and Sea views and the coastal path just there. 4th or 5th visit and I'm sure we'll be back. Oh and try the Dog and Rabbit in St Just, great food, coffee and people.
Mr Smith April 2019
Excellent cottage, within walking distance of St Just and Cape Cornwall.
Mr Nicholus May 2018
Excellent location for natural beauty, hiking, exploring, and access to ancient monuments.
Mr Bailey May 2018
This was our 3rd visit to the Bowjey and as previously we found it to be clean, well equipped, homely and very spacious. It feels like a second home and we will definitely visit again. Also it is very child friendly, we have stayed there with our 4 year old and 3 month old baby.
Mr Smith April 2018
An excellent cottage, we had everything we needed, even better than we anticipated. Spacious with good size bedrooms, kitchen and lounge but also warm and cosy. Even the weather was good!
Mrs Thompson September 2017
The Bowjey is a very comfortable cottage in a quiet location on the outskirts of St Just, the lane leading to the cottage is very busy throughout the day due to it being the only route to Cape Cornwall. This cottage is well situated for anyone wishing to visit South West Cornwall, St Ives, Land's End, Penzance and Mousehole are all within a short drive of the property.
Ms Dorn-Scheruga July 2017
A most wonderful place and location. Wonderful when the weather is fine, but also very cosy and welcoming when it's raining and windy. We enjoyed every minute very much and would definitely like to come back one day!
Mr Nicholus May 2017
Mr Bailey May 2017
The Bowjey is a fantastic cottage to get away from it all. Clean and comfortable. Even on a rainy day the Bowjey is a great place to light a fire in the stove, sit back and relax. On a sunny day, you can just walk straight out of the front door and explore the coast.
Mr Stafford October 2016
A perfect spot for those that enjoy the north cornwall coast
Mr Bernhard August 2016
We liked everything very much.The house,the landscape,cape cornwall ,the coast and.......... We all were very sad that we had to leave the House after one week . It was our best property of our southengland journey!
Mr Biller August 2016

Frau Behrens July 2016

Ideal if you are walkers relaxing atmosphere food handy
Mrs Poole March 2016
The Bowjey was in a great location and we would have loved to return another year but we will have a dog and sadly the Bowjey does not allow dogs.

Mr Smith September 2015
Great stay and well equipped, well placed for visiting the Lands End area. The cottage and surrounding area are very quiet (October) so was blissful!
Mrs Richards February 2015
Great location. Very handy for golf club.
Mrs Paulson September 2014
The Bowjey is a very comfortable place to stay in a wonderful location - you can sit eating dinner watching the sun set, or stroll down the lane and catch the full technicolour splendour over the Cape. Don't forget to go out and be amazed by the stars at night!
Mrs Munyard August 2014
Fantastic location and a spacious cottage suitable for a large family.
Herr Leipold May 2014
It was a pleasure to be there!!!!
Mr Kreisel April 2014
We want come back on this lovely place!
Mr Nash August 2013
Last minute bookings can sometimes be a wildcard - either very good or a complete disaster. Neither was the case here - this booking was excellent, and we were very luck to get in. The Bowjey is in a stunning location; Cape Cornwall is a hidden gem, with sultry botanical valleys, full of butterflies, grasshoppers, lizards and huge emerald flying beetles (never seen these before!), ending in little coves and beaches, the perfect Cornwall experience. The area is so different to Padstow and St Ives - we got from this property what we had been looking for; a slower pace, seascapes, light moods and a lot of relaxation - we got to 'smell the roses' which is what life is all about. When we wanted St Ives, it was just a few minutes drive away. We saw Basking Sharks at Sennen Cove and drove 1.5 miles to Land's End Airport for a surprise flight for the kids over to the Isles of Scilly and back the same day by Scillonian III to Penzance, safely delivered by taxi to our front door! We have holidayed to Cornwall six times over the last 10 years, otherwise going to Crete, North Norfolk or The Lake District. Cornwall is special, no doubt about that, but this location really made an impression on us. The owner cares about their property and rang to enquire if all was well. Clearly it was. We shall be back here again beacuse we loved it. The visitors' book revealed that we are not alone. Well done and thank you! Our only gripe is that we only booked a week - two weeks would have been the best way to unwind. And we shall make that happen next time.
