The Boslinney Barn is, by no exaggeration, in the middle of nowhere. It's not difficult to get to, but once you're there you feel almost cut off from the rest of the world. It's brilliant.
We were greeted by the wonderful Ginny and her two little pals, Sadie and Jaffa. Jaffa is as soft as a puppy and just loves to be played with. Sadie, too, likes to be made a fuss of, but she likes to make you think that she can take it or leave it.
When we arrived Ginny showed us the two rooms so that we could choose which we'd like to stay in. We stayed in the red room, which has been very stylishly decorated with good quality furniture and interesting artwork. The mattress on the bed was among the most comfortable I've ever slept on.
After bringing our bags in, we were offered a cream tea in the living room. I'm not one to turn down a cup of tea with freshly made scones and a good dollop each of jam & clotted cream. Mouthwatering goodness.
We headed in to Mevagissey for dinner, eating at one of the pubs Ginny recommended. We were not disappointed, though I did eat far too much, which meant that at breakfast I opted for some cereal and toast, rather than the splendid full English that the others enjoyed. I was very angry with myself for letting this happen.
While the Boslinney Barn does feel remote, you're only a couple of miles from the picturesque little town of Mevagissey, and less than ten miles from the fascinating Eden Project. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also a short drive away. If you're feeling energetic you could walk to Mevagissey for a few drinks before using the Beer Taxi (ie. your feet) to get you back to the B&B.
I'm already looking forward to returning to Cornwall, and can't wait to stay here again.
