Set at the end of the owners’ private drive approximately ¼ mile from the traditional Cornish village of St Buryan. Buddlestone originally formed part of the owners’ grade 2 listed traditional period farmhouse (adjoining) and offers a peaceful setting from which to explore the many magnificent beaches, gardens and historical countryside West Cornwall has to offer. Buddlestone, at Bosliven Farm, is set in the middle of the scenic Lands End Penisula, half way between Lands End itself and the harbour town of Penzance and close to the famed artists retreat of Lamorna Valley/Cove and the pretty wooded cove of St Loy.
Buddlestone offers spacious accommodation inside and out and is perfect for families or those looking for somewhere to holiday with their dogs. Although spacious enough for a family of 6 (plus cots), Buddlestone also offers the perfect retreat for couples with its homely feel, due in part to its cosy wood burner set inside the impressive granite fireplace. A real feature of the property is its large private garden, laid mainly to lawn with established and young fruit trees (guests are welcome to make use of the abundant apples when ripe). The perfect place in the country to get away from the rat race and to explore the beauty of Cornwall, be it by foot, bicycle, car or just soaking up the sun on our gorgeous local beaches, yet close enough to everyday amenities or the bustling market and harbour towns of Penzance and St Ives with all their culture history.
On arrival you will find wine chilling in the fridge and a traditional Cornish Cream Tea laid out for you to enjoy around the farmhouse kitchen table. Outside you can relax in the large private garden and enjoy a glass on the patio or in the relaxing conservatory while the children play. On cooler evenings light the wood burner and snuggle up under a cosy throw on one of the sofas. We welcome well behaved, house trained dogs (2 max, not to be left unattended unless in a suitable cage/crate, details of local dog walkers/sitters available) who can enjoy the enclosed garden or local dog friendly beaches by day and stretch out in front of the fire by night. There is also a 3/4 acre field set to grass and young trees with a picnic table where you can run the dogs or the children can play cricket or kick a football around.
Buddlestone offers a real home from home to relax and enjoy the surrounding countryside, a great base from which to explore the Land's End Peninsula offering one of the most treasured landscapes in Europe, famed for its scenic beauty and for the richness of its prehistoric and industrial archaeology, idyllic beaches, golden granite cliffs and lonely moorland. West Cornwall really has something for everyone, from walking, cycling, sunbathing, surfing, fauna and flora, to cultural and heritage sites and tourist attractions.
