“Tucked away and so peaceful”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The word "excellent" is often overused but this property certainly deserves such a rating. A very friendly welcome from Julian on our arrival was followed by a tour of the property and facilities. Also provided was a range of foods and drinks together with a bunch of fresh roses in a vase - a very generous gesture. The property was very clean on arrival and there was plenty of room for two adults. Located near the end of a dead end road, the lack of passing traffic made it a very quiet and peaceful location but it is only a reasonably short drive to the main road for the nearest beach and other exploring and after a day out it was nice to relax on the private patio in the evening sunshine. My wife and I will certainly be returning to this lovely property and we look forward to more chats with Julian!

Hi Chris, Thank you so much for such a generous review and I'm delighted you both enjoyed your week away down here in South West Cornwall, you certainly know how to pick a sunny week ! The Minack Theatre awaits your return visit but let's just hope that the Dylan Thomas production has finished it's run ! I look forward welcoming you back to Boscrege, thanks again for your kindness, Julian

“Great week staying at the Lodge”

The Lodge is perfect for a quite holiday, imaculably clean & everything you need is surpplied, it has a lovely garden with outside furniture, Julian provides a lovely welcome hamper with everything for a cooked breakfast & some other lovely welcome goodies. The lodge is not too far a drive from Lands end, St Ives, Falmouth & the Lizard, plus the Coastal paths for walking.
We had a lovely week despite it raining on a couple of days.
Thank you Julian

Thank you again, and I hope to see you all again sometime in the future, Best Wishes, Julian

“A peaceful haven”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

On arriving at the Lodge, we were warmly welcomed by Julian, the owner, given a guided tour of the property & quickly felt very much at home. The Lodge was beautifully clean & equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The vast array of breakfast goodies was exceptional & eliminated the need for a mad dash to the shops. Double doors at the back of the property open out on to the pretty garden, with a small paved area complete with a table & chairs, perfect for an alfresco breakfast or evening glass of wine.
There are some lovely walks directly from the cottage, which is also well placed for touring around the very scenic local area.
We loved our stay at the Lodge, so much so, that before leaving, we booked our return visit. Roll on October!!

Thank you Gail, that's very kind of you. It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family to Boscrege, oh, and not forgetting your well trained (well nearly !) dog, bless him ! I'm glad you enjoyed Kota Kai down in Porthleven, that place really is a hidden gem. I look forward to your next visit, if only to see the progress on the dog training front, ho ho ho !! Take care, thank you, and hope to see you again very soon, Julian

“Lovely week holiday in a brilliant cottage”
Reviewed 27 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Just had a brilliant week in The Lodge with our two grandchildren. After an horrendous journey from Kent we received a very warm welcome from Julian. The Lodge was immaculate and everything was provided that we could possibly need. The fridge was filled with goodies for our Sunday breakfast and plenty of extras that we didn't expect. The children were thrilled with their bowl of sweets, and the vase of fresh flowers and the bowl of fruit were thoughtful additions. The Lodge was in a secluded peaceful setting but close to beautiful beaches and Porthleven where there were plent of places to eat. Julian was always on hand to give directions and advice of places to visit. Thank you Julian for making us feel very welcome and very much at home. We will definitely return.

Bless you Stella, it was a pleasure to welcome you to Boscrege. It was lovely to hear the children playing happily in the garden, and to hear of their adventures with their grandparents, but I expect you'll have needed a few days to 'recover' back home in Kent ?! I look forward to seeing you next time, best wishes, Julian

Oh, thank you Vicky, that's very kind of you and it was a real pleasure to have you and your family to stay here at Boscrege. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found The Lodge to your liking. The beach at Gunwalloe is one to ad to the list for next time ?! You certainly packed plenty into your stay and some places I've yet to visit so Kynance Cove here I come ! Thank you and take care, Julian

“Absolutely fab-u-lous. 😚”
Reviewed 18 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

After a very long drive from norwich we received a very warm welcome from julian who showed us round the Villa and had left goodies in the fridge so no need to go off shopping. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and well equipped.The villa situated at the end of a lane so lovely and quiet. Plenty to do and see we could have filled another week! Would love to go back another time and be prepared with walking boots. Thankyou julian. Hope to return and would definately recommend to anyone !

Hi Tim and Karen, Thank you for your generous review, very kind of you. It was a pleasure to welcome you to The Lodge at Boscrege, and I'm so pleased you had a lovely week. Walking boots are a great idea as there are lovely local walks out from the Villa, or just a short drive away (Prussia Cove coastal walk is a must next time !). Thanks again for taking the time to review, and I hope to see you back again sometime soon, Best Wishes, Julian
