  • “Bowjy was just very tired No natural light in the bathrooms and inadequately equipped kitchen 5 teaspoons for what should sleep 6 people No log burner Very poor lighting in all rooms Sofa had really flat cushions on it and looked about 20 years old.”

    Also the throws had seen better days ...

    Also the throws had seen better days On the Friday of our holiday an e-mail was sent to us by the owner at 0653 to tell us there would be a power cut from 0830 until 1530 . I am not in the habit of reading e-mails before 0900 when I’m on holiday but glanced through to find it just before 0830. The lights and all electrics went out when one of our party was in the shower . Also as the water runs on a pump we had no water to drink or to flush the toilets I know these things happen but this was planned and I spoke to the owner the evening before and she never mentioned what we would face in the morning No cup of tea or coffee that day until 3 and no apology or bottled water or anything We will not be returning or recommending Bowjy Feels like the owners have taken their eye off the ball

The property

Bowjy boasts the best of both worlds fusing Cornish countryside with big beautiful beaches, rugged coves within eight miles and inland attractions all within easy reach.

With its very own hot tub, terrace patio and welcoming interior combining character and all the home comforts, this welcoming barn conversion makes a beautiful bolthole for families, friends and couples seeking both relaxation and recreation.

Set around an attractive former stable courtyard of seven cottages on a working beef/cereal farm with county views, there are three complimentary onsite ponds available for fishing.

Enjoy ambles and rambles, perfect for picnics and dog walking, with an acre of communal lawns plus children's play area and shared courtyard with generous gazebo and barbecue.

With the Atlantic coast less than a 20 minute drive away promising golden sand and super surf, come back after a day's play to a delicious dip in your exclusive hot tub - don't forget your favourite tipple as an optional extra!

Centrally positioned in Cornwall, Bowjy is perfectly placed for discovering and exploring all of Cornwall's coastlines.

The popular seaside resort of Perranporth is eight miles away with large sandy beach, shops, restaurants and inns.

Newquay is famed for its surf, so hire gear and take lessons or enjoy spectacular cliff top walks at Holywell Bay.

Sail at Loe Beach near Feock or play tennis in Truro, if a retail fix is not required.

There's a cinema and theatre too - book tickets in advance - and the stunning Gothic Cathedral.

Dairyland Farm World, The Lappa Valley Steam Railway, golf courses and Trewithen with landscaped parkland provide entertainment for everyone what ever the weather.
