Everything was perfect. From the welcoming cream tea to the log stove. A great spot near Penzance but secluded in the quiet countryside. A friendly welcome from Elizabeth to greet us. Will be back as soon as possible.

Such a lovely spot and two beautiful cottages. Peace and Plenty is good for couples who want that bit more space and small families. Elizabeth and David can never do enough for their guests and all the little extras to buy like pasties, ice cream and fresh eggs and honey make it a special place to be. We keep coming back time and time again. Once you've experienced the best the rest are of no interest.



Comfort assured.

Spent a wonderful week in this delightful upside-down cottage. Beautifully fitted with everything of the best quality. Comfort is assured with owners who offer a warm welcome and genuinely wish to provide a happy experience. Very convenient with local shops within easy walking distance and easy access to Penzance and attractions in the area.

Our cottage was beautifully presented (Very clean, fresh flowers), and exceptionally well equipped; a real home from home. With the weather beginning to cool, we enjoyed the wood burner in the evenings and slept well in very comfy beds. Boscrowan farm is a lovely environment, peaceful, always lots of flowers and charming, helpful owners. We find it’s proximity to Penzance and both the north and south coasts works really well for us, plenty to see and do, a lovely week. We definitely plan to return!

We are always excited at the prospect of returning to Peace and Plenty, and this is our fifth stay, and each visit gets better. Our love of Cornwall is open-ended, as is our enjoyment of Boscrowan.
We arrive uplifted. Our welcome is completed by Nell (collie) and Tiny Tim (cat) coming to see what all the fuss is about!
Peace and Plenty is such a happy and comfortable holiday cottage with delightful homely touches and superb furnishings and facilities.
Boscrowan Farm is a delightful quiet space and we are free to roam and enjoy the farm surroundings.
We are booked to return in 2021. Looking forward to it already!

We had a warm welcome on arrival. Elizabeth was available around the farm most days if we needed to check out anything.
Boscrowan is a great location for coastal walking and visiting a wide range of Cornish coves. We did plenty of both!
We were encouraged to explore and enjoy the 25 acres that comprise Boscrowan Farm.
Peace and Plenty is very well appointed. It is warm; comfortable; with a well equipped kitchen/dining area and comfortable furniture in the living area. It is tastefully decorated and furnished and has lovely gardens. The upper floor with dining and living area is light and airy. The bedrooms are less spacious and some may find movement restrictive. They were fine for us.
It's an all round winner for location and comfort than you cannot fail to appreciate and enjoy.
The name (Peace and Plenty) tells the story!

Thank you for your kind review - so glad you enjoyed your stay and the fresh veg - a good time of year to savour the delights of the greenhouse and vegetable garden!

We were first time visitors to Boscrowan, I think we benefitted from all the Covid-19 related cancellations! So felt very lucky to be able to enjoy a week at the end of August in Peace and Plenty. I had a hunch it would be special, given the beautiful pictures and the brilliant reviews, but it was even more special than we'd hoped! And so welcome after seeing a bit too much of our own house during lockdown(!) to have such a beautiful change of scene. The cream tea awaiting us was absolutely delish and we gobbled up the jar of homemade marmelade and lots of tomatoes too! The suggestion of heating up the pasties in the freezer and taking to the beach turned out to be a excellent one! (we chose Portheras) and we had some lovely croissants one morning too. Along with the fresh flowers arranged everywhere, gorgeous textiles and linens and comfy robes and sheets, it all felt very luxurious! Elizabeth and David were very welcoming and helpful - and very generous with all the space there, which the children really took advantage of!! (paddling in the little stream, feeding the chickens, petting the animals and running around - my son was completely fascinated with the 'alien plant' by the water! He was also very chuffed with his double yolked egg!! I loved watching the bats at dusk. It's a nature-lovers paradise with the beautiful plants too. But also really appreciated being left to our own devices too, no intrusion at all. The house was well equipped with good quality cooking gear which was really appreciated and the shower and bath were lovely. The house is in a brilliant spot to explore what I think is the most beautiful bit of England and we found plenty of nice quiet spots even in August. For those visiting during Covid restrictions (in case they're in place next year...!) I'd suggest going to the busier / more accessible beaches in the morning or late afternoon and then trying the more remote ones in the middle of the day. We had some gorgeous sunsets where the beach was empty (Godrevy was a good one). My suggestion for a nice (and family friendly) treat meal out would be the Artist's Residence in Penzance, but we also enjoyed the Turk's Head and had some lovely fish n chips from Lewis's in Newlyn. I really enjoyed the Jubilee pool (very refreshing!), but tricky with small kids whilst the small pool is shut (main pool quite deep). We had a lovely holiday, and staying at Boscrowan was a big part of it - thank you.



Elizabeth Harris replied 174 days ago
It was lovely to meet you All and so glad that you enjoyed all that Boscrowan has to offer guests. A double yolker is always a treat, however old you are! You certainly made the most of your stay and despite it being such a busy time of year you did escape the crowds with just a bit of planning.

Clean, lovely place to stay, simply the best

In these strange times, knowing that your holiday home is going to be clean matters greatly, and the many regulars to Peace & Plenty already know that they can rely on the hosts to provide beautiful and pristine accommodation with all the comforts you need for a relaxing holiday. Cleanliness is second to none, and add to that the uniqueness of staying somewhere that is convenient for west Cornwall, tucked away in its own tranquil corner on the edge of Penzance, and you have all you need to enjoy a lovely time. We booked both Peace & Plenty and the neighbouring Ring &Thimble for the extended family and had a fabulous time!

We had a fantstastic week in Peace and Plenty. Elizabeth was the most welcoming and accommodating host. The cottage was beautiful, extremely spacious and Elizabeth had picked the most beautiful flowers from their incredible gardens to greet us in every room.
The location is ideal for so many fantastic beaches. We were able to use veg from the veg patch and our little boy loved feeding the chickens and horses and playing on the farm tractor. A very relaxing week. We will be back!

We have had another wonderful week at Boscrowan staying at Peace & Plenty. This is 19 years after our first visit and we have visited almost every year since for varying weeks, long weekends and midweek breaks out of season. All have been lovely and as our week this year was no exception. We always feel welcome and look forward to our lovely homemade cream tea on arrival.

This year was obviously a little different for all with the COVID restrictions but all had been done to protect us without making everything feel clinical and our slight anxiety about visiting the county so soon after restrictions were reduced were unfounded so far as the accommodation was concerned. We visited various beaches and found there was space to distance as there are so many wonderful beaches in the area. The towns were a little more problematic as places like St Ives are cobbled and narrow and there were more people there which personally made us a little uncomfortable although I would say that the tourist industry needs visitors to the shops and restaurants so I wouldn't advise to stay away, just to be alert to the social distancing and keeping to the left as much as possible which effectively made it a one way system. As long as everybody abides by the rules, it will keep things safe for both residents and tourists. Trengwainton for lunch was lovely and we felt very safe as was the Dolphin Tavern for an evening meal. It was lovely to see life re-opening again and the restaurants coming back to life. We also paid a visit to Tehidy Country Park. Parking free and although busy, there was plenty of space and lovely walks through the forest on various levels and gradients. Grandson fascinated by the abundance of squirrels. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Boscrowan as soon as we can book some time away. xx

The cottages are beautifully finished inside and out, great location and a very warm welcome. We have stayed in the Summer and Winter and had equally fun trips! So many brilliant days out for families - we have stayed three times and still have attractions on our list to visit! We hope to be back again soon - thank you Boscrowan Farm!

Returning to Boscrowan is always one of life's pleasures regardless of the time of year or the weather. We always feel welcome and leave feeling rested. This was a flying 3 night visit but it was enough to recharge the batteries. Enjoyed a blustery walk from Sennen to Lands End where we sat and ate a lovely salad from the Cornish Barn in Penzance in the wind and rain. Maybe one of their pasties would have been a little more warming but it was tasty nonetheless. A couple of lovely meals out at the Dolphin Tavern and the Bakehouse were at treat. Lovely to return in the evenings to a warm cosy cottage with the option of lighting the woodburner if needed. The rooms are beautifully decorated with meaningful carefully chosen paintings giving it a very personal feel. A true home from home we are always pleased to return and are looking forward already to our next break in April.

Thank you for your kind review and we look forward to seeing you in just a few weeks time again for a special visit to the Minack, amongst other excitements no doubt!

We are many time returners to the cottages at Boscrowan so this surely speaks for itself! Both Liz and David are so kind and generous with their time absolutely nothing seems to be ever too much trouble to them
Perfectly situated for walking from the cottage - with no car required! it ticks so many boxes being easy access to both inland and coastal footpaths.
Food heroes truly abound, with a very local selection of super fresh fish, meat, dairy and veggies as well as many great coffee and eating out places to enjoy, Boscrowan cottages... well pretty much perfect, we love them!




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Well we have lost count of how many times you have returned but you must definitely be in line for a badge for 'long customer support' or 'endless stays' or similar! We take it as an immense compliment when guests keep returning to us. It does keep us on our toes too though with regard maintaining standards and continually trying to tweak and ring a few changes to keep pleasing!

Our third time in 2 years, excellent as always, our favourite place.

Elizabeth provides superb holiday accommodation in both Peace and Plenty and Ring and Thimble we can't recommend Boscrowan enough for that special stay away. It's close to Penzance with its amenities and lovely Cornish beaches nearby. Superb furnishings and well equipped, with lovely bed linen and a feeling of luxury. Home made scones with cream and jam on arrival and many other special touches, including the beautiful garden and grounds.

Delighted you have enjoyed both cottages now and I wonder do you even have a preference? Often our guests can't decide which is their favourite even though they are both quite different in layout.

We had the most wonderful stay at Boscrowan Farm, the cottage is lovely and Elizabeth went out of her way to be helpful and welcoming. The beds are super comfy, the bath is a luxury and the kitchen is very well-equipped. We spent a happy rainy afternoon by the wood-burner playing Cornwall Monopoly and the location is great for coast walks and the beaches. Nell, Tiny Tim and the chickens were hits!

Another visit to this beautiful cottage. Not blessed by the best weather but there is still loads to do. Galleries, museums lovely cafes and restaurants or just curl up in front of the woodburner with a good book a jigsaw puzzle or a board game all supplied. There are few places that keep us coming back but this is definitely one.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
So glad you enjoyed your stay despite the inclement weather. You can't beat sitting in front of a glowing woodburner when it's pouring down with rain outside and you don't have to go to work, and especially when you are away from home and commitments and no pending jobs on your conscience! Happy holidays!

My wife Tatjana, our daughters Maja (13) and Paula (19) and myself had a wonderful time at the Boscrowan Farm. Elizabeth and David were excellent hosts, they always had time for us and made us feel like being at home. We enjoyed homemade scones, pastries, ice-cream and honey, we were even offered to use the host's garden and summer house any time. Also Elizabeth took Maja for a horse ride twice - a life-long memory for our younger daughter. We also enjoyed Tiny Tim, the cat, Nell, the dog, Gem & Huckleberry, the horses, and the chicken gang.
We will definitely be back at the Boscrowan Farm when we return to Cornwall and will recommend this to our friends and family here in Germany without any hesitation.

Boscrowan is simply the best because it offers something that others fail to achieve - that sense of being “at home” and truly welcomed from the moment you arrive. Lots of great places to stay can be found nowadays, but Elizabeth and David offer something extra, that attention to the detail, and a commitment to ensure you just have the best time, whilst enjoying a beautiful part of Cornwall. The fact that so many of their guests are repeat visitors is testament to what they achieve. Our kids have grown up with Boscrowan in their year and they still continue to visit, now they’re in their 20’s.

This was our second trip to Peace and Plenty, this time with two small children and we had a wonderful time!
The cottage was immaculate and we loved all of the changes and additions since our last stay. It is so well equipped, comfortable and homely.
The location is great for spectacular beaches and beautiful gardens to visit.
We can’t wait to visit again soon!

Thank you for your kind review. We were delighted to welcome you back for a second time - there is no greater compliment for us than a return visit! There is so much to do and see from here and so many places are very close by. Whilst it may be a longish car journey down it is well worth those few extra miles as once you are here there is far more than you can do and see in just a week, or even probably a fortnight!

Peace and Plenty provides exactly that - plenty of peace! Wonderful cottage in wonderful location

Elizabeth and David are great hosts. Very friendly and always accommodating. The standard in the cottage is exceptional. They've truly thought of everything. Most importantly, the bed is delightfully comfortable - a great sleep guaranteed. We love coming to Boscrowan to rewind and refresh. Cornwall is beautiful and Penzance is a good central area to explore from.

Thank you for the great review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay, especially feeding the animals, playing croquet on our lawn, sitting in the summerhouse, having a barbecue in the garden and making the most of the sea in June. We look forward to seeing you again as we know we will!

We had the most amazing holiday in early May at Peace and Plenty which was a beautifully appointed cottage in lovely surroundings. Definitely Peaceful with Plenty of warm generous hospitality, excellent walking, time to relax, do a fiendish jigsaw puzzle, read, wander round the beautiful garden. We just loved every moment and have booked to return same time next year.

We had a wonderful week at Peace and Plenty. From the moment we arrived, Elizabeth made us feel wonderfully welcome and comfortable. Despite a long journey, the children had a new lease of life when David invited them to gather eggs from the chickens and join him to take the horses back to the stables. And we were revived with a delicious cream tea!

We relished our time at the cottage. It is SO comfortable. Elizabeth and David really have thought of everything. They had prepared both mountains of information about the surrounding area and a carefully curated two pager - we pretty much went through the list (using the OS map there to navigate wonderful walks) and loved every suggestion.

Breakfasts of home made bread (made in the breadmaker at Peace and Plenty) or freshly baked croissants (simply taken out of the freezer the night before, as Elizabeth had stocked freezer), lathered in honey from Boscrowan Farm. Picnic lunches using the picnic blankets they have provided. Playing in the sand with the buckets and spades available there. Roaming the gorgeous garden and playing in the summer house. Dinners wrapped up with some local ice cream from the freezer. Settling in for the evening with a wonderful woodburning stove.... Every part of our stay that was enhanced by Elizabeth's thoughtful and generous touches.

Thank you for a wonderful restorative stay in a beautifully decorated and cosy cottage. We will be back!

Boscrowan Farm "Staying at Peace and Plently" always feels like home from home, Elizabeth and David (Wonderful hosts) maintain the property to very high standards, with regular updates to keep the decor looking fresh. The location is tranquil yet only a couple of miles from Penzance and all routes to the best parts of Cornwall and the Cornish coastline. Boscrowan Farm in itself is a wonderful pace to explore and Nell, the very enthusiastic border collie will be more than happy to show you around. Come rain or shine, heres looking forward to our next visit to Boscrowan Farm.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your kind review and it is lovely to welcome you back so many times. It is most gratifying for us that, with all the choice of accommodation in the area you still always return to Boscrowan. With so many guests returning year after year we feel it important to continually re-invest income back into the cottages and maintain standards and hopefully exceed expectations too.

A sring stay in peace and plenty

We had a completely brilliant week staying in Peace and Plenty, everything is thought of to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as it’s possible to be!
A homemade cream tea greeted us on arrival - pure Cornish deliciousness! The cottage was super clean and immaculately presented there were pretty spring garden flowers in every room, and with The White Company bedding and towels it all makes for that truly lux feeling, we just loved it! and shall be back
If only every self catering cottage could have its standards as high as at Boscrowan!

You are very kind! We look forward to welcoming you back in a few weeks time for your third Boscrowan stay of 2019!

My wife and I have thoroughly enjoyed our second stay at Peace and Plenty. Having had a delightful few days in June 2018 we were keen to come back during the winter months to experience an extra cosiness! We were not disappointed. In fact, we are returning late summer so hopefully that says a lot about our love of the place.

We have stayed at Peace and Plenty many, many times and look forward to our visits very much. Set in the Cornish countryside, yet only 5 minutes drive from lovely Mount's Bay, you would find it difficult to surpass (or even match) Boscrowan as a home for your holiday.
The peace and quiet in a beautiful setting and a fabulously well equipped cottage will leave a lasting memory.

We are one of many Boscrowan regulars who are drawn to this delightful farm each year. Elizabeth and David are charming and helpful hosts and the accommodation is comfortable and of a high standard. We are already planning our next visit.

We are so glad you had yet another great relaxing holiday here in Cornwall and delighted that you never tire of Boscrowan. Regular guests such as yourselves keep us on our toes - every holiday needs to be every bit as good as your last one....if not even better!

Returning for another visit to Boscrowan and back to Peace and Plenty again, we know what to expect and look forward to arriving and settling straight into our holiday. However, there is always something new to find as Elizabeth and David strive to keep the cottage fresh and crisp. This time it was new cutlery, new cushions, a cunning tray for shoes, different receptacles for flower arrangements and a gadget I didn't recognise. (Herb scissors, it transpired - and jolly useful they were too).

These items demonstrate the things that make Boscrowan so special. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, the soft furnishings are beautifully stylish, flowers are picked from the garden and arranged in every room.

Staying in September we were able to gather apples from the orchard, tomatoes and rocket from the greenhouse, pick salad leaves and herbs in the garden and blackberries in the fields. These were used with the trug of vegetables provided and with eggs laid by the hens at the farm.

We spent many a happy hour in the gardens and particularly in the summer house - perfect for a drink after a heavy day of being a holiday-maker!!

Boscrowan is an ideal base for exploring the far West of Cornwall which has beautiful beaches within easy reach at Porthcurno, Sennen Cove, Marazion and St Ives, among others. There are gardens aplenty to visit including Trengwainton, Trewidden and Tremenheere. The South West Coast path can be explored on short walks or longer hikes - there's plenty of it. From here there are lighthouses, harbours and stunning coastal scenery to investigate. There are many galleries to explore in Penzance, Newlyn, Sennan, St Ives and Mousehole.

A highlight of every visit for us has been a production at the Minack Theatre - this year was a perfect moonlit evening which was sandwiched between two wet and windy days. We were so lucky!

The area has many choices for eating out with a vast selection of cafes, gastro pubs and excellent restaurants - The Turks Head and The Dolphin in Penzance, The Square at Porthleven, The Tolcarne in Newlyn and 2 Fore Street in Mousehole have long been favourites but there are new places to discover with every visit.

Should there be wet weather (and it does sometimes happen) there is a great cinema in Newlyn with a restaurant attached. There is also the mining history to discover at Levant, Botallack and Geevor. The Penlee Gallery is well worth a visit. Hpwever should you not wish to venture outdoors there's a huge variety of books, games and jigsaws in the cottage.

Elizabeth and David take huge care and attention with their cottages and their guests and are extremely generous with their time - despite being very busy people! This is one of the reasons we come back time after time and I'm sure that's the same for other guests who have been doing this far longer than us!!

A stay at Boscrowan begins with the long anticipated moment when we turn into the little tree-lined lane that leads to the farm, glimpse the green gate beyond the stream, and know that a different world is moments away. We have self-catered all over Britain and Europe but in our opinion, Boscrowan is unique and unsurpassed in every way. Although situated a short drive or walk from Penzance and conveniently close to the A30 for access to the whole Penwith Peninsula, Boscrowan Farm is a peaceful and rather magical haven. Each cottage has its own lovely garden with the orchard beyond and they look out onto the beautiful gardens of the farmhouse, and the wildlife pond. The overall feel is of peace and tranquility. We have visited many times over nearly a decade staying in Peace and Plenty. The cottage itself is superb; decorated in elegant F&B colours, with fine fabrics, lovely furniture and good art, the atmosphere created is of generous comfort and warmth. Elizabeth is a superb gardener and there are always flowers to be found in every room as well as a trug full of Boscrowan vegetables and a jar of Boscrowan herbs in the kitchen. The kitchen itself is properly equipped to a very high standard. My husband is a keen cook and looks forward to cooking at Boscrowan knowing that there are good sets of pans, knives, trays and everything else he will require. Each cottage has a wheel-barrow of salad leaves in the garden for daily use and Elizabeth is generous in allowing guests to augment their meals from her veg patch and greenhouse. You can make a quick early morning trip to Newlyn (less than 10 mins away) for fish straight off the boats (try the Stevenson Fish Shop on The Strand) and with Boscrowan veg and salad, make a delicious meal without setting foot in a supermarket! There are pasties in the freezer (perfect for taking on a walk to eat on the cliffs) and also croissants for breakfast and local ice-cream for pudding. You will also find books, games, jigsaws, ruck-sacks, a picnic basket and just about anything else you might need in the cottage, and buckets and spades, windbreaks, body-boards and wellies in the garage just beyond. The cottage is immaculately presented and impeccably maintained. In short, Peace and Plenty is the kind of home you wish you lived in, and for a week you do! Nell, the Harris' gorgeous border collie puppy, and Molly the cat will greet you on arrival and be glad to make friends during your stay; and you will find ducks and chickens to feed by the cut-flower patch and Gem and Huckleberry the horses in the fields beyond. Elizabeth and David always encourage children to join them to collect eggs and feed the animals, we have been visiting since ours were very little and this daily ritual has always been a much loved part of the holiday for them. The year that there were piglets on the farm and our daughter Emily ran ahead of them (just!) with the feed bucket to lead them back into the barn has become a treasured family memory, as has watching chicks hatch when Elizabeth brought them over to the cottage in an incubator for the children to see. The dedication and love the Harris' have invested in Boscrowan and their warmth and generosity make it a really special place to stay. Beyond the gate, the Penwith Peninsula beckons: Penzance, Mousehole, St Ives, Porthcurno, Porth Chapel, Sennen, The Minnack, Poldark Country.....there are as many beautiful towns, perfect beaches and breath-taking coastal walks as you could want; we love visiting them all, safe in the knowledge that if it pours with rain, we'll be just as happy in the cottage with the wood-burner and Monopoly, or perhaps with Elizabeth having a sewing lesson (over the years the children have made cushions and doorstops on rainy afternoons - all still in use!). The small amount I can say in a review cannot really capture Boscrowan, just go and you'll see what I mean.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for this amazing review and all your time composing it! It is so very gratifying for us to feel we are part of your lives and memories of your many family holidays with us here at Boscrowan. We always look forward to your stays with equal anticipation and have had such fun over the years teaching the children to make a cushion, oh and I had forgotten about the doorstops, feed the animals, collect eggs and this year helping them to produce the surprise birthday breakfast for you one morning. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have so many wonderful and appreciative guests such as yourselves return to stay year after year who become our friends as well as cottage guests. What can we dream up for your next visit that we haven't done before I wonder? We'll think of something!

The hosts were lovely and the afternoon tea and little jars of marmalade were a delight. These small things make a huge difference. A stunning setting, we only wish we had longer to enjoy it.

Very accommodating hosts and a superbly appointed property. From the free veg and lovely cream tea provided at the start we knew we were on to a winner. And even though the place was impeccable there was no formality as we were able to stroll freely around the beautiful gardens and grounds. Like the cream tea...Truly Scrumptuous!

Thank you for your kind review. We are so glad we ticked all the boxes! Nothing gives us greater pleasure than sharing Boscrowan with our guests and seeing them out strolling in the grounds or resting and relaxing on a seat somewhere.

We could not fault our stay in Peace and Plenty. The quality is exceptional, and so homely. We could not wait to get back each day to spend some quality time enjoying the property and the surroundings. Although we were blessed with the perfect weather we are absolutely sure that whatever the weather we would be equally happy and we intend to return in January 2019.
Elizabeth has made a quality holiday home - thank you.

There is a reason why clients return more than once and often make the annual pilgrimage to Boscrowan. It is simply a calm haven of peacefulness where you can take a week or two out of the crazy life and live at a much slower pace. We have been coming down here for 17 years now, both as a family and latterly as a couple. We always look forward to our wind down time here walking various coastal paths and in earlier days as a family doing the beach holiday thing. It is a coast which caters for all family permutations and Boscrowan equally provides a luxury thatched cottage for a couple in Ring and Thimble but Peace and Plenty offers the family a lovely 2 bedroom idyll for a family, with lots of farm animals to feed and a safe environment for them to explore. Can't recommend it highly enough. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Peace and Plenty is the most wonderful, tranquil and comfortable holiday let. We have stayed there many times and keep going back! The accommodation is luxurious yet homely and the kitchen is brilliantly equipped for all needs. We arrive to be welcomed by the most delicious freshly baked scones ( Elizabeth even makes gluten free ones!) accompanied by home made jams and clotted cream; the holiday begins there! This year, I enjoyed an excellent reflexology treatment, with the therapist coming to the cottage. A real treat and added to the relaxation.
The cottage is situated in the most perfect spot; if you want peace and quiet it is there on the doorstep in abundance. Walk out of the gate and down the lane and within 15 minutes you can be in Penzance, no need to take the car.
Peace and Plenty is our first choice for a summer, Winter, Spring or Autumn break! We love it and each year it just gets better. Wonderfully kind and attentive hosts without being intrusive, we feel privileged to be able to go back each year.

We highly recommend Boscrowan Farm for a lovely peaceful holiday in a glorious setting. There are plenty of interesting places to visit in the area, with some lovely walks. The cottage was lovely and had everything you could wish for. In the evenings there were rabbits playing on the lawn, and we even saw a badger strolling past. If you want a peaceful, relaxing break, this is definitely the place to visit. Highly recommended.

The location was so peaceful and green yet so close to all the facilities of Penzance. The proprty is in an oasis of green, a million miles away from day to day worries.
Our hosts were so welcoming and helpful. We felt like extended family.
The cottage is beautiful and has every modern facility in an historic, character filled building.
Having supplies of frozen food in the freezer was bonus and made it easier to settle in on first day, before we had opportunity to shop for supplies.
Would definately recommend.

We've now lost count of our holidays at Peace & Plenty, a week there is as important as Christmas and birthdays - it's an essential part of our year. There's lots of excellent accommodation out there, but Peace & Plenty and the neighbouring Ring & Thimble have an extra "wow factor" that comes from the hosts Elizabeth and David, for whom nothing is too much trouble and their attention to detail is second to none. The accommodation is superb throughout, always pristine and a lovely base to explore west Cornwall and the Lizard peninsula. This is not one of those "run of the mill" holiday properties, it's something very different and very special.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your very kind words. Easter wouldn't be Easter for us without your annual stay in Peace and Plenty too! We have loved watching your family grow up over the years and are honoured that you come back to stay here every year without ever considering an alternative!

We were warmly welcomed by Elizabeth & David and shown the spotless, spacious cottage, enjoying a delicious cream tea 'on the house'. The kitchen is well equipped, the log burner makes a lovely cosy ambience and the beds were very comfy.
We enjoyed walking round the farm which made a great base for a couple of days out. We appreciated the excellence of presentation, environmental concern and friendship from Elizabeth & David and will certainly return to Peace & Plenty for another West Cornwall break.

We have stayed at Peace & Plenty many times and it just gets better and better. We needed somewhere peaceful and comfortable to recover from a tough few months and Peace & Plenty was the place to go. Peace & Plenty provides warmth, tranquility and comfort in beautiful surroundings. Elizabeth and David are kind and generous hosts who do not intrude but are happy to provide ideas, advice or a gentle chat. The furnishings are luxurious yet homely and the scones on arrival are delicious - Elizabeth even makes a special round of gluten free ones when required! We feel incredibly lucky to have found such a wonderful place to stay and are looking forward to returning in June.

Thank you for your very kind review. We look forward to your visits to Boscrowan just as much as you look forward to coming.

See you soon again - in just a few weeks time!

As Boscrowan regulars since 2001, it is difficult to escalate the description of how much we like to stay there, and how special our three weeks over Christmas and New Year have been. Our holidays at Boscrowan and Peace and Plenty always provide, without fail, an escape from the pressures of our everyday life in London. The sheer enjoyment of this unique holiday home is staying there, remembering all the wonderful previous stays and looking forward to the next time. Peace and Plenty was beautiful and superbly equipped from the beginning, but has been consistently improved with new soft furnishings, furniture, pictures and the many special touches to make it even more of a home from home. Did we want to leave on January 7 .... NO! ..... but we had to get back to London and work. But we know there will be a next time!

We have had another holiday at this wonderful place. We can't wait to get there, and we don't want to leave. It has everything you would wish for in a holiday cottage. Peaceful, warm, luxurious and in perfect surroundings, so whatever the season it's simply a wonderful place to stay!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are so glad you enjoyed your annual out of season stay. As often happens the weather can be as good if not better than earlier in the year, as it was for you last week. That always feels like such a bonus when you arrive expecting anything, but West Cornwall and its microclimate - barely a frost yet and nasturtiums still flowering as evidence!

A wonderful home from home in a beautiful setting.

The cottage is cosy and homely with every home comfort. So much thought has gone in to providing all the extras that make a holiday home perfect. From the homemade scones and jam, fresh flowers in all the rooms, pasties in the freezer, candles for a birthday cake, Elizabeth has thought of everything.

Nothing compares to coming back to the cottage from a brisk autumn walk, lighting the woodburner, opening a bottle of wine and settling down in the cosy lounge to enjoy the peace and tranquility of a evening spent at Boscrowan Farm. This was our second visit to Peace and Plenty and we look forward to the next holiday.

This was our sixth visit to Boscrowan and how good it was to be back. Anticipation builds during the weeks leading up to the holiday and grows with the journey down the A30 and the first view of St Michael's Mount! Not only are we excited to be returning, but there is the anticipation of what will have changed and what will be new - there's always something!

Our welcome cream tea was as delicious as ever with homemade scones and a choice of homemade jams.

We had beautiful weather during the week of our stay and so were able to take full advantage of the newly re-designed garden,viewing it from all angles in the revolving summerhouse - a lovely setting for morning coffee, afternoon tea, evening drinks or simple suppers.

The cottage is ideally placed to reach local beaches, gardens, castles and coastal walks.





Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your kind words. We always like to keep updating and maintaining the cottages and are aware that our repeat guests like to see we are spending their money wisely! When we first embarked upon holiday cottages here I think we hadn't really registered with ourselves just what an ideal location we had here - close to Penzance and so many spectacular places and beaches yet set in quiet countryside, two minutes walk to the well stocked shop and a baker, post office, chemist, fish and chip shop and a pub all within 5 minutes walk too. It may be a longish journey down to far west Cornwall but boy is it worth those extra few miles!

Excellent cottage and very enjoyable farm life, my kids could feed animals such as horses, chicken etc The cottage owners are very loving and caring family which is very unusual these days. Will be more than happy to stay head again in future and would recommend any one to prefer without much thinking.



The very best there is!

Boscrowan is unique. Both Peace & Plenty and the sister cottage (Ring & Thimble) are beautiful in their own ways, and ideal havens in which to relax, within a quiet farm where you'll be left in privacy or able to get involved as you please. Cream tea on arrival, the very best eggs for breakfast, and all in a most comfortable cottage which will feel just like home within minutes of arriving. The location is perfect, easy to reach the north and south coasts of Penwith, St Ives, and the beaches and walks on The Lizard. A week at Boscrowan is a fixture in our calendar, every year!

It's not the first time we have stayed at Boscrowan & it won't be our last, it is always a pleasure to visit Boscrowan, when it comes to comfort, it is a truly home from home experience, and the welcome committee (Molly the cat & Jess the dog) are always on hand to keep us entertained.

We have stayed at Peace and Plenty many times before. It is a wonderful place to stay; comfortable, relaxed, home from home. The bed is the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in and the White Company linen sheets make it even more comfortable and luxurious.

Every time we go the cottage has been updated so it never looks tired or dated.

Elizabeth & David are such wonderful hosts. They are thoughtful and generous with their time if you require it.

We never thought we'd return to the same place over and over again but it's hard not to when we've found somewhere so special.

We can't recommend Peace and Plenty highly enough.






Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your lovely review. We have enjoyed seeing your girls grow with every annual visit that you have made since you first came for your honeymoon twelve years ago. Every year is another memory both for you all and for us. Helping your youngest make a cushion in the soft furnishing workroom this year was as much fun and a sense of achievement for me as it was for her!

From booking to arrival and indeed our whole stay at Peace and Plenty was perfect. There were so many additional thoughtful touches, beautiful daffodils from the farm, tea set out on arrival, home made marmalade and apple juice not forgetting the trug of fresh vegetables.

The cottage offered all two couples needed for a short break in Cornwall, next time our stay needs to be longer. Often there are things that don't quite work or are missing in the kitchen but not in this case, sadly we did not have time to make fresh bread in the bread maker.

Our evenings were spent by the wood burning stove, cosied up playing board games.

We would throughly recommend Peace and Plenty as perfect place to stay and thank Elizabeth for her welcome.





Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope you return again one day to use the bread maker! Indeed short stays are great to get a taste for the area but there is so much to do and see from here that even a week can be too short.

We discovered Peace and Plenty at the end of 2001 and our yearly stays there have given us sheer enjoyment ever since. It is truly a home from home for us and our Christmas and New Years Holidays would not be the same without it. Absolutely the best way to end and begin a year. The cottage is superbly equipped; the decoration and soft furnishing a la Elizabeth Harris provide a very special touch and are updated regularly. There is always something new and nice. We love the reversed layout with the sitting room overlooking the wonderful garden at the front and the orchard at the back. Peace and Plenty not only offers peaceful surroundings but also provides the perfect ambiance for relaxation and feet-up time. It is a great location for exploring the beauty of West Cornwall, the Lizard and beyond. We never fail to find something we haven't seen yet. Our hosts have always taken excellent care of us, and we already look forward to our next holiday at Peace and Plenty. Definitely top marks from us, yet again!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Well Christms and New Year would not be the same without your annual 2 or 3 week stay! Thank you for yet another lovely review.

Peace and Plenty is a very special place. Very tastefully decorated and very clean. Elizabeth, the owner, goes out of her way to make you feel very welcome. The little touches of a trug of fresh vegetables, cream tea, natural toiletries, bathrobes and beautiful bed linen where very much appreciated. We would not hesitate to recommend this property to disearning holiday makers.

Peace and Plenty was stunning. There was a delicious cream tea, with home-made strawberry jam and blackberry jam, waiting for us, as well as a trug of vegetables from the garden, home-made marmalade and apple juice made from Boscrowan apples. The decor, furnishings, curtains made by Elizabeth, as well as lovely crockery, glassware, linen etc were all high quality. We had flowers from the garden in every room which was a lovely, special touch. A wood burning stove was laid ready for us but we never needed to light it because the house was cosy and comfortable all the time. The kitchen was very well-equipped, even including a bread maker and flour and yeast if we wanted to attempt to make bread.

We will definitely be returning to Boscrowan. We felt totally spoilt and there was nothing that could have made our stay any better.




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Well what a compliment indeed! We definitely hope that you will be returning too.

If only we could stay here for a week every month of the year! Situated in a lovely setting, surrounded by gardens and fields, Peace and Plenty is one of the nicest cottages you would wish to find. Beautiful flowers in every room, yummy scones, clotted cream and pots of home made jams and marmalade - a Cornish cream tea for the most discerning of guests. Apple juice in the fridge and fresh vegetables for us as well. Light, airy and beautifully furnished, with a brilliant woodburner to boot, just simply a home from home which we looked forward to going back to each day. A perfect all year round cottage.
We'll be back.

Elizabeth and David are perfect hosts.

We sleep well, eat well - and relax when we visit and we return home with lots of ideas to improve our own home!

A glorious place in a glorious setting




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for yet another glorious review. October is a lovely time of year to come and stay - the weather is often really good still, as it was for you and yet everywhere is less busy than the summer. We look forward to seeing you again - we know we will and we so enjoy your Boscrowan loyalty when there are so many places to choose from, just in our local vicinity - yet you still return to us, year after year. This is definitely your 'Cornwall home'.

A beautiful peaceful cottage set within a small farm. Horses and chickens and a friendly dog on the farm. Lovely gardens. The cottage is decorated to a very high standard in a country style. Very clean. Nice touches such as cream tea on arrival and fresh flower throughout the cottage. Plenty to do and see in the area such as Poldark mines, Falmouth, St. Ives, St. Michaels Mount, etc. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Boscrowan.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago

Peace and Plenty as a holiday cottage lived up to its name. It was home from home and more so. It is so well equipped that we couldn't think of anything more that you would need. The furnishings were of the highest order which added to this delightful holiday home. Elizabeth and David are excellent hosts and very friendly and generous. I highly recommend this cottage and would say it is the best one we have ever stayed at

Peace and Plenty at Boscrowan Farm is a beautiful cottage, equipped with everything set in a lovely garden in a quiet location, but with easy access (by car) to all the interesting sites in West Cornwall. The hosts, Elizabeth and David are extremely welcoming and friendly, making this a most perfect home away from home.

The accommodation exceeded our expectations and the attention to detail is amazing. The decor is country style and everything is colour co-ordinated with quality furniture and soft furnishings. Everything was in excellent condition including the carpets. The kitchen is so well equipped with everything you could think of plus pretty country style crockery and it even has a meat thermometer!! The gardens are really lovely and get sun in the early evening too.

If you would like to sleep well this is the place to stay as it is so quiet. It only takes 10 minutes at most to reach very good pubs/restaurants/ a variety of supermarkets by car.

The hosts are really nice people and attentive to your needs without being in your face.

A wonderful cottage in a great location, perfect for visiting both coasts north and south also for visiting the Scilly Isles which we did as a Birthday treat which everybody enjoyed.
Peace and Plenty lived up to all the good things we hoped for and more besides, the owners are very friendly and helpful, flowers in every room is a wonderful touch.

The number of repeat customers who stay at Boscrowan speaks for itself, and is the very best evidence of the quality of the accommodation, and equally importantly the warm welcome that awaits on your arrival. We've lost count of our stays at Boscrowan and we feel like we have a timeshare in Peace & Plenty! Elizabeth and David are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble ... equally the accommodation is private and secluded, and it makes a wonderful and central base for exploring the very finest that Cornwall has to offer. It is simply, the very best, and we go back for more every year! A "home from home" is an over used phrase for holiday accommodation but it certainly applies to Boscrowan!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for yet another wonderful review. You settle seamlessly into Boscrowan life every Easter and take pleasure from taking Meg for a daily walk in the fields, enjoying the horses, being outside at every opportunity, taking photos of Boscrowan and when you are out and about and sharing on facebook and making the most of our peace and quiet. Indeed the Easter holidays wouldn't be the same without your visit - you are an integral part of our Boscrowan year and we thank you for coming to stay with us too!!!

In a word Fabulous. Elizabeth at Boscrowan was an exemplary host who made our stay special. She was a delight with the children, who enjoyed meeting and feeding the animals.

The cottage itself is beautiful, with a wonderful log burner to keep you warm at night. The photos do not do the cottage justice, and in keeping with the whole experience, Boscrowan under promises and over delivers in every aspect. From the delicious Cornish afternoon tea with Cornish scones, cream and jam that was left for us on arrival, to the amazing Cornish pasties in the Freezer. The cottage is well stocked with games and consumables, and the fixtures and fittings are modern and easy to use. The cottage has a charm about it that you cannot understand until you stay there.

Going on holiday with children is so difficult, but Boscrowan makes it a pleasure and they use their wonderful farm to reunite the workaholic with their family. I loved it, my wife adored it and my daughter wants to be a farmer.. We cannot wait to return.





Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you so much for all your kind compliments - we do so hope you will return and for longer next time - we enjoyed meeting you too. A mini break is just an appetiser - there is so much to do and see in this area that you could stay here for 3 weeks even and go somewhere different every day and eat somewhere different every evening and all within a relatively short radius from here.

Not our first stay at Boscrowan, and certainly won't be our last, Elizabeth & David have created two wonderful barn conversions maintained to the highest standards, home from home with a country twist to the decor. Molly the cat and Meg the dog are always around, Meg is happy to take you exploring the surrounding fields. All this and only 1 mile from Penzance!

We have just had a lovely relaxing and luxurious short stay in Peace and Plenty and everything as ever was just perfect in every way possible Boscrowan is genuinely a small slice of paradise that we return to again and again, the cottage has undergone a few updates here and there including a fab new luxury bathroom suite, pure linen on the bed thick deep fluffy huge towels dressing gowns etc we continually find that nothing is ever lacking - everything is just there - all is thought of and that's what sets Elizabeth and David attention to detail apart from the crowd.
Penzance and all around was glorious in the March sunshine and blue skies and we walked our socks off - not needing the car as Boscrowan is such a central place to stay and set off from on foot
We are many time returners and have future stays already in the can! thank you Elizabeth and David for sharing Boscrowan with the rest of us, and we will see you again soon




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Lovely to see you again, your second stay so far this year with more booked before 2017! Glad you enjoyed Cornwall at this great time of year when there is plenty to see and some amazing sunny days that can feel like summer.

We are many many time returners to Boscrowan cottages it is truly THE most lovely cosy relaxing place to enjoy short or longer stays and of course main holidays as ever the Boscrowan Magic was there in spades from the start and totally what we wanted for a winter week away
Elizabeth and David have been busy with refurbishing - including a new wood burner central to the upstairs living space making any central heating only ever needed for the downstairs bedroom spaces, also a very lovely new main bathroom adds yet even more luxury to the ground floor bedrooms
On arrival Elizabeths homemade cream tea is a fab start of things to come - the local produce is truly second to non - we must include the Boscrowan free range eggs - in November we had a hen busy laying outside our cottage everyday!
Elizabeth amazingly manages even this early in the year to fill every room and available space with pretty flowers from the her fabulous cottage gardens
Finally the kindness and thoughtfulness from both Elizabeth and David makes the whole complete
We recommend you come and try you won't be disappointed




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago

Since our first stay for New Year 2001, my husband and I have spent every Christmas and New Year at Peace and Plenty. The enjoyment of spending the festive season at this wonderful and unique holiday home has never diminished. The home from home factor has actually increased the joy of being there. Elizabeth and David Harris never fail to add little and bigger extras to the already superb standard of the property. Over the years, we have also had several "non-festive" breaks at Peace and Plenty and the cottage next door (Ring and Thimble) which is also an absolute gem. We would not wish to miss the immense pleasure of staying at Boscrowan.

My husband and I are many time returning guests of Elizabeth and David to the holiday cottages at Boscrowan we have visited at all times of the year including Christmas and Easter and we always find that both cottages are simply faultless Elizabeth and David ensure that should you need any help or info it's there or very freely given, the cottages are set amongst beautiful surroundings with cottage gardening at its best often with chickens wandering about freely laying eggs almost on your door step!
Boscrowan is well situated within Penzance enabling you to enjoy many different walks for days on end without need of your car - Penzance is a well kept secret it's a haven for foodies with many fresh Newlyn fish outlets, deli's, local farmers markets, coffee shops, bakeries etc just whats needed at the end of a days walking to take back to the cottage and enjoy a freshly cooked local produce meal, it really doesn't get any better.




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Always lovely to welcome you back, time and time again and thank you for your kind words. We enjoy having guests to stay at Boscrowan as much as they seem to enjoy coming to stay! Indeed, we are in a great location for walking, sightseeing, relaxing and hopefully absolutely everything you need from a good holiday. See you next year!

We had a wonderful week at Peace and Plenty. The property was meticulously prepared for our arrival. Spotlessly clean with beautiful cut flower arrangements, fresh vegetables to use and a cream tea including home-made scones and jams making us feel instantly at home. The owners, Elizabeth and David, were very welcoming and on hand whenever needed but not intrusive. The wooden floored open plan upstairs consisting of kitchen, dining and lounge areas was spacious, light and airy. A wood burning stove complemented the central heating and was a real treat in the evenings. The downstairs accommodation was ideal and of a very high standard. We were able to freely roam the gardens and fields belonging to the farm. This property is in a great location just on the edge of Penzance close to all amenities but in a very tranquil rural setting. There are many beaches and other attractions within a short drive. A very relaxing place to stay for families and couples in this beautiful part of Britain.

Excellent short break stay at Boscrowan Farm. Unseasonly warm weather was the icing on the cake and meant we were able to walk several sections of the SW coastal path. There was so much close at hand to do and see in the area.
The standard of the accommodation in Peace & Plenty exceeded expectations and we appreciated the extra touches,such as fresh flowers, complimentary cream tea on arrival, home produced fruit,veg,jams and apple juice. David and Elizabeth were always on hand to help or advise and nothing was too much trouble.
So thanks to you both for a great Cornish experience.




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are so glad you so enjoyed your first visit to the Penzance area. It may be a somewhat long journey to this further most area of the county but once here there is so much to do and see within a short distance - such is our location close to the end of a peninsula. Guests come and stay with us year after year yet still find new places to explore and new restaurants, cafes and galleries to visit. October is frequently a time when we experience great weather too.

A great find.

Peace and Plenty is a perfect holiday location; a warm welcome, excellent accommodation and perfect Cornwall tranquility. The house is spacious and furnished with care and comfort in mind. The kitchen is comprehensively equipped and has every item you could hope for. As soon as we arrived, we felt the tension and stress of working life disappear. A delicious plate of freshly baked scones, with home made jam and cream awaits your arrival along with apple juice from the orchard. We have been visiting Peace and Plenty for 8 years now and have no intention of looking elsewhere!

We had a lovely week staying in the beautiful Peace and Plenty cottage. It was perfect, very clean and comfortable. We stayed with our two children (5 and 7). We loved it, the children didn't want to leave the cottage in the morning and were always happy to come "home" in the evening. The cottage is beautifully decorated there is plenty of room, the kitchen is great to cook in. Elizabeth and David are very kind and welcoming. We were able to feed the chickens and the horses, cat and Meg and Jess the dogs. We strongly recommend Peace and Plenty. We also visited the other cottage (Ring and Thimble in 2007, we didn't have children at that time) on Boscrowan farm.

It was lovely to welcome you back after 7 years and we so enjoyed your enthusiasm joining in with feeding the animals and other activities here, with your young family. The mixed weather didn't seem to dampen your spirits in the least. We had fun too!

Peace and Plenty is what you get

It starts with a cream tea waiting for you and doesn't disappoint from then on
The cottage has everything you could need and has comfort to match
It's position is great
What a find




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your kind words - we're glad you had such a great stay from beginning to end. Our location is great, even better than we initially realised when we embarked upon this venture 16 years ago - set in the countryside but so close to so many iconic places, both coasts, a well stocked shop open 7 days a week, 15 hours a day - just 2 mins walk. A baker, post office, chemist and pub - just 5 mins walk, the sea 5 mins drive, Penzance our nearest town 5 mins drive or 20 mins walk. Yet you wake up every morning and hear no traffic, but lovely birdsong and maybe even the clatter of horses hooves past your door. We are lucky to live here and are so happy to share Boscrowan with others.

We neded somewhere to stay for a week so that we could listen to 'In Choir' at Lands End and at the Minack. The venue was recommended to us. The accommodation was situated in an orchard with many birds and animals in view from the windows. The house was upside down with the lounge, kitchen and dining area upstairs the bedrooms down stairs.
We were in easy reach of several Nation Trust houses, gardens etc., and there were many other exciting places to visit eg: St. Ives, The Telegraph Museum, the Lizard, Lands End. There were exciting places to dine eg National Trust cafes, The Godolphin Hotel. There was of course the exciting 'St. Michaels Mount' very close.




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We were delighted to meet you both and have you to stay at Boscrowan for a week. Indeed we are extremely well located to visit so many local beauty spots, museums, gardens, beaches and indeed a fine open air theatre - The Minack with its unique setting nestled into the cliffs overlooking the ocean. You certainly made the most of your time and we are delighted that you are planning to return to visit more places next time. Wherever you are in this area of south west Cornwall you are never very far away from both the South and the North coast and such a variation in scenery all around - hills, coast, beaches, moorland, quaint fishing villages to mention but some!

A beautiful cottage

Booked last minute and were lucky to get availability as this property seems to be booked year round. A beautiful property with the most friendly and helpful owners. We will certainly return.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We so are glad you enjoyed your last minute, short stay and look forward to welcoming you back to Boscrowan again one day and hopefully for longer next time. There is so much to do and see in this part of Cornwall. It may be a long journey here but once you arrive as we are on the far end of the peninsula you are so close to both coasts and so many iconic places - a tremendous variation in scenery and all so nearby.

Perfection in the world of holiday accommodation!

Boscrowan is perfect. We have returned time and time again (9 times, we think!) simply because you instantly feel "at home" from the moment you pass through the gates. Both properties are stunning, with everything you could need to make you feel at home. On arrival, the whole of Boscrowan welcomes you and makes you feel instantly at home, whether it be Meg the collie who loves to take you for a walk round the fields if you let her, the home made cream tea that awaits you when you arrive, or of course Elizabeth and David, for whom nothing is too much trouble. For those who don't know the far end of Cornwall, Boscrowan is ideally located as it is close to Penzance, with easy to access both coasts, as well as The Lizard, St Ives and the best bits of "Poldark country"! We've stayed in many lovely places, but none quite compare with Boscrowan, because it has the edge on quality, but more importantly a unique sense of homeliness. It's an essential part of our year!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for such a stunning review! See you again next year - same time, same cottage!

We loved our peaceful time here. The kitchen facilities were superb and the wood burner a centre of attraction. However, the central heating was fine and more than enough in itself. We were only two staying here, but with the second bedroom it would be perfect for the larger family or friends. The roof lights and exposed beams or vaulted roof structure in the spacious kitchen and living area gives lots of lovely natural light. There are lots of features through out including attractive wooden flooring and beautifully finished fabrics. When we return to Cornwall for a holiday Boscrowan Farm will definitely be our first choice.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your kind comments and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay in Peace and Plenty. It's a great cottage for both couples who like a bathroom each and a dressing room too and equally suitable for families or groups of four.

We are regular visitors to Boscrowan. It started 10 years ago on our honeymoon and we now take our children back for family holidays. It's perfect for couples or families.

The decor is beautiful and the cottage is well kitted our with everything you could possibly need. Elizabeth & David are welcoming and exceedingly helpful.

As a family we enjoy mucking in on the farm; feeding the chickens, horses, dogs and cats as well as enjoying time in the beautiful cottage. It's the perfect place to visit for our family.

The setting is idyllic, peaceful and safe.

This time we invited friends to join us and stay in The Ring and Thimble next door. They fell in love with Boscrowan just as we have.

There is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Lots of nice pubs & cafes, mile of golden sandy beaches and plenty of footpaths to tread.

Absolute peace and perfection!




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We love your title - how very complimentary! It is so very gratifying for us when guests return to stay - holiday after holiday. We enjoyed seeing you make the most of your stay here - you have learnt the ropes so well by now.......and the chickens and ducks are not the easiest to lure back into their runs in the evenings - so full marks for that accomplishment too!

Fabulous February stay in Peace and Plenty

We are one of many time returners to Elizabeth and Davids wonderful pair of Boscrowan holiday cottages, it's always so easy for us to share our happiness and contentedness at their super and extremely high constant attention to detail in their pair of cottages, we always enjoy their home produce which is consistently of the very highest quality

Both Elizabeth and David have a unique and unfailingly friendly and inclusive attitude towards you as guests in their holiday cottage and it is apparant from the moment of your arrival and thus continues throughout your stay until sadly you have to depart.

This time our stay began by us taking part in a very fun charity 'sewing workshop' which Elizabeth had organised and what a fun way to start our holiday it was, this was an afternoon very typical of Elizabeth it was just so much fun nothing was too much trouble for her and new skills were indeed learned!

Of course as always we vote with our feet and we shall return..........

Excellent holiday accommodation in a quiet location near to Penzance. Village shop, fish and chip shop and pub within walking distance. Some good country walks nearby.

The owners are very friendly and helpful.

This is a very well appointed cottage with first class furnishings and fittings. Ample parking.

Quite honestly I can not fault it and have rebooked in the summer.

Having spent our Christmas and New Year's holiday at Peace and Plenty - and additional holidays - since 2001 shows how much we love it. It is a most beautiful and comfortable holiday sanctuary in a peaceful, yet central, location. Peace and Plenty and its neighbouring cottage Ring and Thimble are one of a kind, and to be highly recommended.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Thank you for your lovely review. We enjoy having you to stay every year for the Christmas/New year fortnight as much as you enjoy coming! The cottages seem to have evolved over the years to become the second homes of many rather than just self catering accommodation with only the necessary contents for a week's stay. This isn't to say they are cluttered but we try and provide everything useful that people might have in their own homes too and we do like a lot of nice and luxury too!

Elizabeth and David made us feel very welcome. We felt very much at ease and relaxed in Peace and Plenty. Some really lovely touches added to our stay. We used the bread maker, cooked the frozen pasties already in the freezer, indulged in the cream tea that was waiting for us on arrival....... We were really spoilt and look forward to visiting this lovely part of Cornwall again in the future. Thanks to both of you.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and made good use of the breadmaker etc. I trust that a cream tea in West Cornwall is as good as one in your home area of Cornwall?!! It just goes to show you can have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday even in the county you live in! Must test out that option ourselves too.

We had another wonderful stay at Peace and Plenty during the half term week, exploring beaches, historic sites and of course relaxing at Boscrowan Farm. The accommodation has everything you could possibly need and fantastic views over the gardens. The cream tea welcome and the trug full of home grown produce, as well as other tasty treats were delicious. Our nine year old daughter so enjoyed helping David and Elizabeth to look after the animals, it really made her holiday, thank you. We discovered some new places to visit and places to eat and are already looking forward to our next visit where we know there will always be a fantastic welcome from David and Elizabeth and a reliable, relaxing and peaceful place to stay.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We were delighted to welcome you back for October half term again this year and that you felt you had another wonderful stay. It was a pleasure looking after the animals with your daughter - her helpfulness and enthusiasm knew no bounds - she was delightful company and has been sorely missed this week by Jess and Meg in particular. We shall also look forward to seeing you all again one day and sharing Boscrowan with you for a week!

Peace and Plenty offers everything you need for the perfect holiday. Comfort, fabulous location and a warm and generous welcome. We have booked for 7 years consecutively now and cannot imagine staying anywhere bertter. Tranquil, yet within walking distance of shops, Peace and Plenty provides a truely wonderful escape from the bustle of everyday life.



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
Well, we feel that we are the lucky ones really! What greater compliment can we have, than a family who come to stay at Boscrowan every summer for a fortnight and have booked already for 2015 and 2016? We enjoy having you to stay every bit as much as you enjoy coming here to stay! May the benefits of 2 weeks of rest and relaxation here last you in your busy lives, for many weeks to come.

We take our summer holidays in Cornwall usually taking two weeks( in two places )but next year we will be returning to Boscrowan for the entire holiday because it is quite simply the best cottage we have found and its location is perfect.
It gives easy accessibility to the sorts of places we enjoy:gardens,gastro pubs and beaches (Sennen Cove,for example rivalled anything France could offer,this year)
The cinema in Penzance offers National Theatre productions and we booked on line from home very easily .

Shopping at the big supermarkets is available.Parking at Tesco and then walking into Penzance saves a fortune in parking charges,by the way!




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay in Peace and Plenty so much and thank you for your very favourable compliments on the cottage and our location. Looking forward to welcoming you back next year and there is so much to see and do even for a two week stay here without ever having to travel far from this base.

We have been visiting Boscrowan for 10 years or so and it never fails to be excellent. This year was no exception. Peace and Plenty is beautifully presented, spacious and lots of light. Elizabeth and David Harris are always very welcoming and provide some lovely extras - especially the cream tea on arrival. We are already booked in for 2015!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
How incredibly fortunate we are to have guests that return to Boscrowan, year after year and never tire of holidays here. Many of our guests say that Boscrowan is like their second home - I guess that is the ultimate compliment!

We last visited this part of Cornwall forty years ago - a lot has changed. After much research, we were fortunate to come across Boscrowan Farm as the base for our holiday. We chose Peace and Plenty and we were not disappointed. On arrival, we received a very warm welcome from the owner (and her two dogs and cat) and after a short introduction to the cottage we sat down to enjoy an excellent Cornish cream tea.

The cottage was exceptionally clean and well-equipped with some nice and unexpected extras. We have stayed in a a number of cottages over the past 5 years, and Peace and Plenty was definitely one of the best. We could have lit the large wood-burning stove but elected not to do so as the cottage was already at a nice, comfortable temperature. The fact that the living and sleeping levels are reversed means that the bedroom is cool which is something that we prefer.

Unlike some cottages that we have stayed in - things work. There is good wifi throughout the cottage, and the power of the shower is second to none. Access to the property is also very good (unlike some where the owner has forgotten to mention that a 4 by 4 might be helpful) and, although it is close to some useful local amenities, the cottage is very quiet by night.

The owner’s two ambassadors make daily calls to check on their guests’ welfare. We found that the occasional dog biscuit in return was much appreciated.

Boscrowan Farm is an ideal holiday location and the owners (Elizabeth and David) go out of their way to make the holiday special. If you are thinking of visiting Cornwall, then Boscrowan farm should be at the top of your list.

We had an excellent weeks stay here.
The accommodation was just as it looks in the pictures and everything was very clean. The house quickly felt like home with super comfy beds and a well stocked kitchen of every pan/ladle you could ever require.
Owners, Elizabeth and David, are friendly and available but not intrusive and were great with my little girl who has an interest in anything animal like.....they were always happy to let her help join in the feeding chores and this put the biggest of smiles on her face..... The favourite part of every day for her was when she got to help out.
I would highly recommend staying here, I have never holidayed in the uk before but I will definitely return.




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and that the cottage felt like home, which is our ultimate intent. We like to give our guests full opportunity to cook on holiday, should they wish, by providing well equipped kitchens as we realise that often people have more time on holiday and enjoy sourcing local produce - fish from Newlyn, local veg and produce from our growing area etc. and eating here in the cottages. We love sharing Boscrowan and the animal feeding chores with our young guests should they show an interest and it was particularly good the week that you came that we had chicks hatching in the incubator too - an added bonus!

We are many times returners to Boscrowan
Both my husband and I had a wonderful week plus one extra a day in Peace and Plenty we have to say the cottage as ever was absolutely first class in every way possible, you just cannot fault the attention to detail, comfort and truly friendly faces of both Elizabeth and David.
The weather was mostly perfect and we walked everyday far and wide (Boscrowan is a brilliant central location for liberating yourselves and abandoning the car for days and days) we then on the spur of the moment decided to take the following week as an add on and this surely tells it's own story!
We love Boscrowan cottages what a perfect place to stay, relax recharge and just enjoy, by the way we have already have booked a two week stay over Xmas and New Year 2014 AND we just can't wait..........

If you're thinking of booking one of Boscrowan's properties - just do it! You will not regret it. Boscrowan is the perfect place to stay - two wonderful properties with everything you need and the very best of hosts, who are available if needed for anything but equally the properties afford you privacy to do your thing and come and go as you please. Boscrowan is great for both families (children will love the animals, egg collecting and walks with one of the resident collies) and couples who want relaxation and a little luxury. Within 5 minutes of Penzance, yet it feels like the middle of nowhere, Boscrowan provides a great base for touring the area, from Lands End to The Lizard, St Ives and both coastlines. And if it rains, just stoke up the fire, get the clotted cream, strawberry jam and scones and enjoy! The owners have many regulars, who (like us) think of the place as a second home! Once you've been to Boscrowan, you will come back again!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
It is equally as enjoyable for us as for you when you come to stay every Easter holiday. Even Meg (collie junior) recognised you again this year as soon as you arrived and begged to take you from the suitcases and unpacking to go with her for a walk around the fields, obviously remembering that you are a daily walking companion when you are here. We're delighted and flattered that you consider Boscrowan to be your second home!

Thank you for your very kind compliments. We have enjoyed watching your family grow up as the years progress too.

Having welcomed you back here for several years now, just bid you farewell after a fortnight's stay last Saturday and we're looking forward already to seeing you for Christmas and New Year I think we might safely say that Boscrowan could qualify as your second home! You probably walked the most miles during your stay - Heamoor to Perranuthnoe (to name just one of your days) and back is surely a fair hike and you have definitely earned the most points in the Boscrowan jigsaw challenge to date this year. You are great guests!

We were very pleased we chose Boscrowan Farm, although the weather could have been better. The owners and their dogs were very friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed being in a farm setting.

The location was excellent for easy access to coastal walks, eating out and sightseeing in West Cornwall.




Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay here and such a shame that you didn't have better weather for this holiday, although at this time of year it can be somewhat unpredictable. Also, often when it is fine on one coast it can be completely different a few miles away on the other coast - such can be the weather when we live so close to the sea.

Stayed for a long weekend in this beautiful converted barn. Everything from the cream tea waiting for us and daffodils in vases from the field out the back, the wood burner and a well stocked freezer with pasties and croissants, Elizabeth has thought of everything to make our stay that extra special. Location wise you have everything you need within either a short walk or short taxi into Penzance for restaurants. Unlike us we normally like to eat out most nights, we ended up staying in 2 out of 3 nights as it was so cosy and the weather was so awful! Elizabeth is always there to help and nothing is too much trouble for her. Even when we had a short power cut late evening due to the extreme weather (and first one they have had) Elizabeth was straight over to us with candles and torch making sure we were ok. The wood burner was a god send too! The bed was so comfortable, we had a bathroom each both with great powerful showers! We really didn't want to leave and I tried to convince my husband to stay an extra night unfortunately work prevailed. Loved the dogs & cats that roamed around and greeted you. We will definitely be returning for another stay, hopefully in better weather next time, however whatever the weather it will not disappoint I can assure you. Thank you Elizabeth & David for making our stay at your wonderful accommodation everything we had hoped it would be.... plenty of peace!



Elizabeth Harris replied more than 1 year ago
We are so glad you enjoyed your winter short break and remained stoical despite the vagaries of the weather during your stay. We aim to provide well in the cottages to give our guests the option to stay at home and relax should they wish in the evenings, after all what better than a glass of wine and feet up in front of a roaring wood burner - so good to relax and recharge those batteries!

Peace & Plenty is a lovely place to stay with everything you could wish for and then some more, it is a delight. We were welcomed with delicious scones and tea and were given plenty of helpful information on arrival (actually Elisabeth had sent us useful travel information even before we set off). Our 8 year old daughter loved playing on the farm with Elisabeth & David always happy to help her to get to know the dogs, cat, horses, ducks and geese. We found the cottage a very relaxing and comfortable place to stay and an excellent base to explore west Cornwall, which clearly also has much to offer.
