Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We are a family of 4 (kids age 4 & 6). We had such fun on the farm. Our girls loved this chickens, and grew to love the neighborhood sheep. Such a wonderful location, great views, lovely hot tub, perfectly clean tent, everything you needed was available. 10-15mins to the coast in almost any direction. The oil lamps and candles were fun, the wood ovens were great, quick and simple and effective. A truly unique experience for us and our girls. Maddie was fab during our stay, giving us tips and kindly helping out with anything we needed including fresh bedding for our youngest once. Highly recommend this. Suggest to bring your own torches (although Maddie has some available at the shop) and maybe a battery pack to charge your phone (these were the only things we missed). Thanks Maddie and family!

Booked very last minute (day before visiting) and feel hugely fortunate to have done so. Visiting with 2 adult children we stayed in the gypsy caravan and bell tent, which were amazing. The tent was a little warm in mornings but temperatures were 28+ outside. We had our own toilet, sink and little kitchen shed as well as barbecue/fire pit with wood supplies. The shared showers were very clean, worked well and great water pressure . The little shop had everything we needed (local beer & burgers, ketchup, marshmallows, loo roll etc. All in all a great site with good amenities, views and easy to reach beaches etc. Maddy and Adrian were very welcoming and helpful, thank you both.

Just back from a weekend at Boswarthen Farm - had a brilliant time and already looking forward to returning! Tents were gorgeous - very clean and lots of space and lovely touches. Comfy beds, lovely candles and oil lamps, a big cool chest, own loo - all made it very easy. Showers were hot, easy to book and very clean. Maddy and Adrian were lovely and welcoming, they have got the balance between camping and being very comfortable and a little bit spoilt just right! We enjoyed feeding the chickens, collecting eggs, laughing at the friendly sheep who popped by the tent every day, the farm tour, pizzas and marshmallows with the other campers around the campfire. When we managed to tear ourselves away from the farm, the local area is lovely - Marazion, Mousehole, Newlyn - great beaches and villages. A really special family time and so good to kick back and enjoy the time together.

Absolutely brilliant 7 night stay at Boswarthen Farm. The safari tent and hot tub were unbelievably kitted out. Maddy and Adrian were the loveliest hosts, so welcoming, always on hand if needed and full of great local knowledge. We were a party of 3 adults and 2 children (10,7) and visited St Michaels Mount (superb) and the Eden project (very good) as well as Sennen Cove, Penzance harbour and fitting in a cinema trip and the local arcade. So much to do and we definately didn’t have enough time! We toasted s’mores, enjoyed the wood fired oven cooking delicious meals and making the tent so warm and cosy later in the evening but the highlight has to be the stew pot hired from the farm - you can book in advance - amazing food! The wood fired hot tub was wonderful and a hit with the kids as well. Once you get the hang of getting the fire going it’s really easy to heat it up and retains heat amazingly well overnight. We all slept miles better than normal and the tents go pitch black if you want them to so no worrying about the kids not sleeping. We will be back without a doubt!

Our family stayed in the gypsy caravan/bell tent. Lovely spot in the hills overlooking fields and St Michael's Mount in the distance. A perfect base to explore the amazing beaches on the north and south coasts. The kids loved the cows, sheep and chickens. Maddy and Adrian are such friendly and genuine hosts with pizza night in front of the campfire a highlight. Hope to return soon!

From deciding to book up until we left, our experience of Boswarthen Farm has been amazing. Firstly we must mention Maddy and Adrian who could not have been more pleasant and helpful throughout our holiday. Nothing was too much trouble. Our family stayed in the two story safari tent which was incredible and also the bell tend and Rosie, the gypsy caravan. Everything provided is just right. The views and peaceful setting was spectacular. Don't miss the lasagne night. We cannot rate this holiday highly enough and will definitely be back at the earliest opportunity.

I stayed in Man An Tor tent with my husband and our two young children. We all had a fabulous time. The farm is in a lovely spot with amazing views, and the night sky was spectacular. Maddy and Adrian were great hosts and were really good with the kids. We saw a baby cow being born! Lasagna night was lots of fun. Would definitely recommend!!!

We've just got back from a wonderful 7 night stay at Boswarthen Farm in the two storey 'Chysauster' Glamping tent. We've only been home a few hours but our children have been nagging us since we left, asking us when we can go back. The wonderful Maddy and Adrian have really tapped into what is important in a family glamping holiday: a sense of community, kindness, consideration and a wonderful experience away from technology and screens. When we arrived, Maddy showed us around and was detailed in everything that Boswarthen had to offer. The honesty shop is well stocked and there were also a number of games and travel leaflets to borrow, as well as well-chosen produce, so you really make the most of your stay and the local area. The tent itself was pristine and exciting for the children (adults too!) - we loved the two storey element and the Jack and Jill bathroom was a saviour with young kids in the night! The views of the farm and out to sea are absolutely stunning and you will regularly have animals wandering by, or the cows walking up to be milked, which was wonderful to watch. During our time we participated in both pizza night and lasagne night, which was a wonderful Boswarthen community event. We got to meet others from the other tents and eat wonderful food, prepared by Maddy (who was excellent when dealing with dietary requirements too.) We all had a wonderful time around the campfire and the children have never slept so well, what with all the excitement and fresh air. Both Maddy and Adrian were excellent in explaining their livelihoods and encouraging us to see farm processes and ask questions- it was all such a wonderful experience. The only downside to Boswarthen is that once people realise how awesome it is, it will probably be harder to book! We will certainly be returning to this wonderful place.

We had a great time at the farm, staying in the tent and gypsy caravan with my son and nephew. Maddy was an excellent host and went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable. The accommodation is very cozy, with a clean toilet, very clean shared showers, a well kitted our small kitchen area and a wood burning stove in the tent that can be used for cooking. Perfect for exploring West Cornwall, Lizard, Porthcurno, Lands End and the peninsula. Large supermarkets available nearby in Penzance for groceries. There is also a good honesty shop at the farm for daily staples.

Loved Boswarthen farm! Would 100% return and great value for money. We stayed in the 2 storey safari tent, it was cosy and comfy and had everything you need. The hosts Maddie and Adrian are so attentive and helpful, but not overly so which is perfect. They go out of their way however to make sure your experience is great. They think about everyone and what they may need so you are never without. Really enjoyed getting involved in farm life and learning about the dairy farm, also we got to look after some chickens and eat fresh eggs. We are also really close to everything, beaches, Penzance and loads to do. Excellent stay.
