Bosneives House is an absolute stunner! Approached along leafy lanes in an idyllic countryside setting, this elegantly furnished Grade II Listed country home is the perfect escape from the humdrum of everyday life yet only a short drive to the treasures and delights on the ever popular north Cornish coastline.
Spread across three floors, there's a spacious but homely kitchen/diner, comfortable sitting-room, seven gorgeous bedrooms, and swanky bathrooms to boot. For those wanting to chill out there's a cosy snug and if you are feeling competitive there's table-football and a pool table to entertain.
Add to this, five acres of gardens, paddocks and woodlands to explore and you have the ultimate get-together house for family and friends at any time of the year. For those lucky enough to visit, you will fall in love with this absolutely perfect Cornish retreat and you won't want to leave!
With no expense spared interiors that could be featured in a glossy magazine, this is a very special house that delivers on every level. The spacious entrance hall doubles up as a boot-room ideal for hats, coats, wellies, walking boots and wet dogs that need towelling down! The splendid kitchen/diner is the heart of the home with a walk-in pantry, great for storing all your holiday goodies, the mother of all Agas, perfect for large party catering, and a huge dining-table where you are sure to spend many an hour gathered together. There's ample space to relax and unwind in front of the wood-burners in both sitting-rooms and if you want some quiet time, why not curl up with a good book in the office.
Ascend the fabulous staircase - yes, even the staircase is impressive - leading off in different directions and with galleried landings to the bedrooms on the two floors above. On the first floor there's the master bedroom with a super-king size double and a wood-burner - how romantic is that? Three further bedrooms, with wonderful window seats to while away many an hour looking out on the pretty garden below, and two stylish bathrooms each with a separate bath and shower, and twin wash-basins - perfect for the little ones to brush their gnashers at the same time! - complete the first floor. On the second floor, under the eaves so please mind your head in places, a king-size double and two 'zip and link' double/twin rooms provide flexible accommodation and are completed by a further bathroom.
Outside there's plenty more to keep you entertained - enjoy lazy summer days in the garden, outdoor dining with meals cooked up on the barbecue, adventures in the woodland and songs around the campfire, bliss! Please take care with children around the pond and stream.
Dare to leave this idyllic haven? Well, should you need further adventures this is a great launch pad for fun-filled days out and about that will delight every member of your party. The golden sands of Mawgan Porth and family and dog-friendly Daymer Bay are within easy reach, and adrenalin junkies will get their fix at Watergate Bay and Polzeath. Hop on a bike and cycle the Camel Trail from Bodmin to much-loved Padstow, enjoying a cream tea along the way, and for those who want to take things a little easier enjoy rambles across the surrounding countryside or wander the streets and shops at nearby Wadebridge and the Cathedral City of Truro. For foodies there are award-winning restaurants and celebrity chefs in abundance, or pick up some local produce and head back to Bosneives to conjure up your own Cornish feast.
