Our arrival was delayed because of terrible driving conditions, so this deprived us of one day in the place where we could happily have spent a month. We stayed in Ring and Thimble - a spacious, luxurious, warm and delightful cottage for two. The owner had put an enormous amount of thought and care into the first class furnishings, and explained how everything worked very clearly. Wonderful bed and bath.
We were delighted with the location, easy access to north and south coasts, loads of helpful information, and delightful walks from the cottage. The dogs were friendly too! It was not surprising that the guest book showed many people making return visits, I think some have got into the teens already. We hope to go back again for sure.
We had a long weekend in Peace and Plenty cottage. We were given a warm welcome and made to feel at ease as soon as we arrived. The decor and furnishings are lovely and it all felt very comfortable. It has a very well equipped kitchen complete with a bread making machine.
We were impressed by the use of 'green' practices at the farm and accommodation - this seems quite unusual and they've won awards for this.
The location is excellent. It is very peaceful indeed but yet close to Penzance, about a 5 minute drive. Beautiful scenery and beaches are nearby and we'd recommend a drive to Sennen. We visit family in the area twice a year and are glad that we've finally found somewhere we can keep going back to.

Two beautiful cottages, each with its own character and individual style, with top quality furnishings and equipment.
Cream tea, Cornish apple juice, fresh flowers in every room, lovely soft furnishings - everything you could possibly want and more!
Set in amongst peaceful surroundings with beautiful gardens, lovely private places to sit and fields to roam - we didn't want to come home!
This was our second stay in Peace and Plenty and we fell in love with it all over again. If you were to prepare a blueprint for perfect self catering accommodation, it would look just like this.
The cottage is beautifully decorated and furnished and has the highest quality soft furnishings. Every room has fresh flowers from the garden, including the freshly picked herbs in the kitchen. A wealth of information is provided, giving details of things to do and see, timetables, menus for local restaurants, even the local weather forecast for the five days from your arrival. In addition there is sufficient reading material to keep the most avid reader fully occupied for a long time. Games, CDs, DVDs and videos are all supplied, in addition to an iPOD docking station and a selection of magazines.
The kitchen is a real cook's kitchen and provides every piece of kitchen equipment and utensil you could possibly need. There are recipe books and a notice board giving details of the fruit and vegetables available on the farm. The freezer is stocked with locally produced croissants and cornish pasties (and cooking instructions are also provided). Home baked scones with clotted cream and jam await your arrival.
The large bed is extremely comfortable and made up with crisp white bedding with toning silk cushions and runner. The bathrooms are equipped with fluffy white towels in profusion with local hand made soap provided.
However staying in Peace and Plenty is not just about the accommodation; the cottages are set in beautiful surroundings - the lovely garden, the wildlife pond, the summerhouse and the surrounding fields are all part of the experience. Partaking of these is a must and is very much encouraged by the hosts, Elizabeth and David.
The welcome extended by Elizabeth and David, and their hospitality, concern, interest and care for your well-being (and all done without being intrusive) is all part of the package which makes Boscrowan such a perfect place.
We have been taking self catering holidays for more than 25 years and this is, without a shadow of a doubt, the very best and the place to which we want to return again and again.
