We spent 4 weeks at the location from the middle of May to middle of June. We found happiness and peace outside of time and space, a place to feel at home, cottage and hosts make it easy for guests to feel welcome at once. Sunsets on the front terrace were great. There is enough space for 2 more visitors (we were 2 adults and a dog). Our hosts were so friendly and caring, helpful, and sympathetic. We got detailed insider advice before every trip we planned. We felt immersed in many aspects. Daily strawberries were provided in the Village shop 5 minutes away opened 7 days a week, superb organic food is sold at the Trevaskis Farm Market a 10-minute drive away on the way to the beach. We had wonderful bicycle tours, but roads sometimes are rather steep. There was an endless supply of breath-taking panoramas at the Coast Path and spectacular sights of cliffs, water and nature where we hiked almost daily. The location is great with three coasts easily accessible within half an hour – and still quiet and remote. Our Border Collie had to sleep upstairs in the cottage apart from us but got used to it. The well maintained, enclosed garden gave him shady resting places. He loved to play at Godrevy beach (only 15 minutes’ drive) where dogs are not banned before July 1st. The hosts are VERY dog friendly!

With everything going on in the world at this time, the peace at Bolankan was so welcome. It is a fantastic position for getting to both coasts and other tourist locations.
Mrs Swift-Clarke September 2022
Lovely stay at Bolanken View, barn well furnished, homely and cosy well equipped.
Is very rural with single track roads and unlit but very central to all the popular places in Cornwall.
Lovely welcome from Gavin and Nikki with fresh baked bread and scones and jam, who are always on hand as live next door.
Mrs O'Hea July 2022
Thank you, we had a fabulous time at Bolankan View. A beautiful cottage in a lovely, peaceful, rural location. Easy drive to gorgeous beaches on North and South coasts. Super comfy beds, very well equipped kitchen. Excellent garden for our dog too. And very helpful and hospitable owners (yummy homemade scones and bread...) Definitely hope to return.

Mr Griffiths September 2020
We want to thank Gavin and Nicky for another (much needed) lovely holiday at Bolankan Farm. We're already booked to return next year.
Mr Edwards July 2020
Beautiful cottage in a peaceful setting & fantastic views. Very well equipped & well situated for visting South Cornwall (St Ives, Falmouth, St Michaels Mount & The Lizard all within half an hour). Particularly liked the beautiful village of Porthleven with its lovely harbourside pubs & restaurants.
Mrs Forbes July 2020
Beautiful cottage in a peaceful location. The owners Gavin and Nicky are very welcoming and helpful. We did not want to leave and would definitely recommend this cottage to friends and family.

A truly comfy place to stay, it was great to just unwind, and be so close to the towns and beaches. Loved our stay!
Mr Wloch October 2019
The hosts were very obliging and helpful. Milk, bread, scones, jam and cream on arrival. Plus fresh flowers on the table - nice touch.
We would happily come again.
Mr Hoad September 2019
This is a wonderful location if you want to be central to this part of Cornwall and explore. And there is also enough to do and see if you don't want to travel too much. The owners will give great advise on local places to visit.
Mrs Timmermann-Kraft July 2019
Cosy cottage, very calm located with nice views. Very good equipped with good beds. Especially the hospitality and kindness from the owner and the tipps for trips in the nearby is recommended.
Ms Watt June 2019
Thank you to Gavin and Nicky for a such a lovely stay at Bolankan View. They were friendly and helpful throughout (the welcoming bread and scones such a nice touch!) and the cottage divine. A great spot to get out and about, exploring the Cornish coastline and to retreat to of an evening, to catch the last of the sun and BBQ. Altogether, the trip exceeded our expectations... one week wasn't enough!
Ms Schubert June 2019
We had a great stay at Bolankan View. Rural location, very warm welcome with homemade bread and scones. Thanks to Gavin and his Mum! The cottage is fitted with everything you can need, which made our stay very comfortable. We can really recommend this beautiful home from home to everybody who wants to discover this lovely part of Cornwall!
Mr Brownbridge April 2019
So good we’ve been twice
Mrs Aflenzer September 2018
Thank you again to Gavin, Nicky and Mum for the lovely week we spent at the cottage. The bread and scones were perfect to start off our holiday. It's worth booking just for the scones.
Mr Baker June 2018
Cottage was very well laid out and the people very welcoming. Would definitely stay again.
Mr Griffiths May 2018
This is our 2nd holiday at Bolankan View (4th at the farm). The cottage is as comfortable and welcoming as our 1st stay and the cream tea and warm bread even more so! We never have a problem getting out and about (one reason we keep returning). From Newquay/Fistral to the St Just mines, or down to Helston, Praa Sands and Falmouth – they're all accessible. The addition of the bigger fridge freezer was great for us as we don't really eat out. We were particularly lucky with the weather and have returned home well rested.
We're already counting down the weeks to our holiday in September at the other cottage Bolankan Barn!
Mr Moore September 2017
friendly and helpful proprietor
Mrs Fletcher April 2017
Fabulous location immaculate very modern appliances and very warm log fire and views were the icing on the cake ticked all the boxes
Mrs Thompson October 2016
Great standard of accommodation, very cosy and homely. Hosts very welcoming and helpful. Quiet location but well situated to visit north and south coasts.
Mr Wood June 2016
Nicky and Gavin (and his mum) were really nice and friendly. The homemade bread was nice, but the scones were amazing (apparently made by Gavin's mum). Everything we could have wanted was all provided for us, even the fantastic weather. It was so quiet and peaceful, hardly any traffic and only a few horses went by. Watching the bats in the evening was nice too. Perfect position for both Cornish Coasts but without the crowds. Oh and nearly forgot we visited Trebah this time - amazing.
Mr Poole June 2015
The owners were very welcoming and had provided some thoughtful provisions for our arrival. The cottage is in a peaceful location with very few passing vehicles, yet close to many interesting destinations. We had a great week.
Mrs Tyler June 2015
Met by owner who gave us more details re heating etc. Also provided us with a very welcome cream tea ,fresh bread and milk and during the week fresh eggs!We felt very welcome and that nothing would be too much trouble. Congratulations to the owners for creating and maintaining such high quality accommodation .
Mrs Conredel May 2015
Wonderful place and perfectly situated to discover different parts of Cornwall. The owners are very friendly and we felt very much at home. Perfectly equipped and anything you could wish for was there. We had a lovely week at Bolankan View.
Mrs Townsend March 2015
The cottage was absolutely beautiful and the warm welcome from Gavin and Nicky, together with the super cream tea, made our holiday really special.
Mrs Norton February 2015
What a delight this property is. Owners so welcoming. Central to most locations. A beautiful property in a really lovely little hamlet. Thank you so much for a relaxing stay.
Mr Sumner December 2014
Gavin and Nicky were fabulous hosts - the property and situation are just sublime, the house is unfussy which adds to the relaxing quality. The views out of the windows of the surrounding countryside are wonderful. This is really a place to come and rest, even with small children. On that note - the children loved 'their' room. They said the beds were the comfiest ever and slept brilliantly. It is really dark which is a also a winner. Brilliant provision of simple clean toys (a farm, trainset and Dr Suess books) which the girls played with enthusiastically. All in all, perfect.
Mr Ford October 2014
A very special cottage with friendly owners nearby. We enjoyed every moment of our time here and will definitely return. Fully recommended.
Mrs Walley August 2014
Exceptional and spotless!!
Mr Turner August 2014
We love the place - our fourth time and more likely be back again next year!
Mrs Arthur July 2014
Superb, well situated cottage for exploring St Ives to Sennen Cove and the Lizard peninsular together with the North coast up to Perranporth. Exceptional cleanliness (and we are particular) and one of the very best welcomes we have ever had - freshly baked bread, scones and a very genuine, warm welcome from the owners who live on site. Everything pretty much perfect - nothing to be unhappy about!
Mrs Longman July 2014
We received such a warm welcome at this cottage, it was greatly appreciated after such a long journey. Excellent cottage with stunning views and a very convenient location.
Mr Wiggins May 2014
The owners are exceptionally friendly, helpful and considerate. It's a great place to stay in an excellent location, ideally situated between the North and South coasts. The cottage is very well equipped with everything you could possibly need. Lovely.
Mrs Carter May 2014
A very cosy, comfortable cottage in a peaceful, secluded, location but still only a few minutes by car from main routes. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well equipped. Delicious fresh eggs from the owners' chickens.
Mrs Sweet May 2014
This is a truly wonderful cottage, furnished to a very high standard. We had a fantastic holiday here and highly recommend it.
Miss Lythe September 2013
Our stay at Bolankan View was wonderful. The owners gave us such a warm welcome and provided a few treats for our arrival which were greatly appreciated after our long journey from North Yorkshire. The property was spotlessly clean, well equipt and comfortable. With such a beautiful location we could not have asked for more. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to our friends and family and hope to stay there again in the future.
Mr Turner June 2013
Please don't book. We want to stay and you'd make it more difficult to get the date we want. But if you really must... You won't be disappointed.
Mrs Platt June 2013
A beautiful barn conversion, luxuriously equipped and set in a very peaceful and quiet location with lovely countryside views. We loved the memory foam double bed, so comfortable, and the two bathrooms were an added bonus. The log burner in the lounge was a treat for late in the evenings on cooler days and the kitchen was so well equipped I loved to cook in it. We found it to be very well located for our travels around the Penwith, Lizard and Roseland areas and great to go back 'home' to at the end of the day due to the peace and quiet of its setting. Perfect for a relaxing, stress free holiday.
Mrs Carter May 2013

Booking on the website is very easy, the admin is always efficient and the standard of the cottages is first class. They are always well equipped, comfortable and very, very clean. Well done everyone.
