“A hidden gem and cosy retreat”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A wonderful long weekend at The Longhouse. Once again the owner excelled at making us feel welcome with a fabulous breakfast provided and lots of additional touches to make the break feel special and the cottage is immaculately presented. The Longhouse was a welcome respite from slightly inclement weather with a wonderful log burner for cold winter evenings (especially for Kipper the Dog to curl up by) and plenty of good eateries in the vicinity. Lovely walks along the local beaches such as Rinsey Cove, Praa Sands and Sennen Cove made for a restful break

Thank you John, & Julie. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay, and the restaurant recommendations (oh, I've a couple more you're going to love so all good for next time ?). It was my pleasure in welcoming you to Boscrege and very much hope to see you again, perhaps in the spring when the hedgerow flowers are beautiful, the walking lovely, plus home to the log burner (and a cheeky Malt ?!). Best Wishes to you both, Julian

“A Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a wonderful two week stay in the Long House. It was immaculate when we arrived. Julian had really thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The goodies in the fridge were such a surprise and a real treat!
The change of sheets and towels ( and the short bread!)midway through our holiday was very thoughtful.
We were very comfortable inside the house and also enjoyed the privacy of the garden. Juno ( our dog) enjoyed it too.
Thank you for a great stay.

Hi Jane, Peter, (& Juno !), Thank you for your kind words and I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and managed to re-charge the batteries ! I was in Mullion Cove yesterday and thought of you as there was a beautiful dog friendly beach with 5 or 6 dogs charging about in and out of the sea, how Juno would have loved that ! (by the way, she left her pink ball in the garden so it's in the shed waiting for your next visit ?!). I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer, thanks again, best wishes, Julian

“Beautiful Stay!”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

A fabulous stay in Cornwall. The Longhouse is perfect for a short stay, although it is very well set up for longer holidays. We couldn't fault the cottage, it was immaculate, clean, fresh - everything looked brand new. We ate out mostly as there are great restaurants in nearby Porthleven a picturesque harbour, notably Kota Kai, Amelie's, for lunch try the crab sarnie at the Ship and of course Rick Stein (sharing platters are a must) but I did also cook Dinner and the tasty breakfast the owner left in the fridge for our arrival (had to be the best bacon ever) Visit St Ives, The Lizard, Praa Sands, Mousehole, Coverack and of course Lands End, prepare to part with £5 car park fee to get in but it's a photo op must. Or ask Julian for the best places nearby for a lovely refreshing walk. We will definitely return as soon as a relaxing, peaceful, pleasant stay is required. A little gem in Cornwall.

Hi Debs,
Thank you for such a kind review, I'm so pleased you enjoyed your holiday here in Boscrege and I look forward to seeing you again (there are still lots of great local restaurants you haven't yet tried and walks that are a real must !). Thanks again and Best Wishes, Julian

“Perfection and Tranquillity!”
Reviewed 7 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Well...what can I say? The Longhouse is simply perfection.
The photos on here don't do the property justice - it is absolutely lovely, airy and light. The only sound you tend to hear is birdsong, and the private garden is a true suntrap and very peaceful.
My partner and I stayed for a little R&R after I had handed in my dissertation and it was exactly what I needed! Julian could not be more attentive and happy to help, and the welcome breakfast pack was a much appreciated touch (and delicious!).
The property is perfect if you like walking because there's plenty of walks around (Godolphin Hill offers amazing views around Cornwall), or if you like the beach Praa Sands or Church Cove are really close and really brill little spots. The property's also in a perfect location for exploring areas around the south coast. Although my partner and I don't have children and didn't take our dog, the property would be perfect for either - it's very secure and private.
Cannot thank Julian enough for a wonderful holiday!
