"Loved the well equipped apartment, especially the sea views. Shame the big tree in front can't be trimmed! Very clean, beds very comfy and the Easter treats were appreciated. Great base for exploring West Cornwall and although weather was mixed, we were lucky to have fine weather for a show at the Minack Theater (superb) and Lizard to Kynanek lovely walk and always pleased to come back to warm Bosbrea"

"The apartment was very clean, comfortable and tidy. The view was very nice, but oh that walk from the beach!!!"
"We had a lovely weeks holiday at Bosbrea thank you. It is the first time we have stayed in that part of Cornwall and enjoyed our vist. The accommodation was excellent, everything we had hoped for. We enjoyed reading some of the books in the book case; we’d brought some of our own but read yours instead and enjoyed them. We ate at the Cornish Arms just down the road three times: good food at a good price and very convenient. We also ate at the Seafood Cafe in St Ives and Waves in Penzance. We enjoyed a visit to the Eden Project and St Michaels Mount as well as visiting all the art shops in the neighbouring towns."

"Bosbrea - Very comfortable, spacious and well appointed apartment. Great base to explore a very nice part of the world. Pleasant half hour coastal walk to St Ives or 5 minute train ride. In Carbis Bay we had a very good Italian meal across the road at Casa Romano and excellent take away fish and chips from Becks down the road. Would certainly recommend."
