Roaring log fires, long country walks and a superb level of comfort and quality; welcome to Bolenowe Farm. Set in a pretty hamlet and oozing with country-chic charm, this traditional farmhouse with peaceful gardens and its glorious green surroundings provides a tranquil setting in which to unwind and truly get away from it all.
A super central spot makes this the perfect base for exploring the best of what Cornwall has on offer. Only a 20 minute drive away you can find the stunning North Coast beaches of Portreath and Gwithian; both popular with surfers and sunbathers alike. A favourite with the owners of this property, Gwithian offers some of the nicest coastal walks, superb surfing, seal watching and arguably the best beach café. Lifeguarded in the summer months, both beaches are very family friendly.
Don your walking boots and pack a delicious picnic, abundant wildlife and rolling countryside awaits you on the doorstep. A lovely walk from the cottage will lead you on to The Great Flat Lode, a 12 km circular trail in the heart of the historic mining district. This is truly a rambler's paradise. Stithians Lake only 10 minutes drive away with offers of sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, canoeing, archery and climbing activities and a great pub is something to be appreciated by the whole family.
Paying a visit to iconic St Ives is a must. Enjoy browsing the many boutiques and art galleries, including the famous Tate Gallery. Stop for some refreshments at some of the many cafés and restaurants located around the pretty harbour. Fabulous Falmouth, also home to The National Maritime Museum, is within easy reach and does not need much introduction. From here take a boat trip or ferry to beautiful Flushing or St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula.
For an end to a perfect day, gather around the crackling fire, glass of red in hand whilst dinner is cooking in the cleverly kitted out country kitchen complete with a Stoves range cooker. Upstairs 3 comfortable bedrooms furnished with carefully chosen antique pieces are prepared to assure you get a good night's rest.

Camborne lies in the heart of a former mining community and was well known for its “Queen of Cornish Mines" - the Dolcoath copper and tin mine, the deepest in Cornwall. Today, Camborne is home to Heartlands, a community space covering 19 acres and scattered with remnants of the mining industry, providing a free space for visitors to explore the heritage of Cornwall, browse art and craft projects, stroll through the gardens and sit and share a picnic or enjoy lunch at the Red River Café. From Camborne centre you can follow an interesting town trail, or spend the afternoon in the museum before visiting the array of shops and pubs. A ten-minute drive from Camborne brings you to a wealth of sandy Cornish beaches including Portreath, Gwithian and Porthtowan. Camborne is ideal for exploring Land’s End, the Lizard Peninsula, Truro and the Eden Project, which are all less than an hour’s drive away, ideal for a day trip.
