Activities on the farm
Most mornings you will have the opportunity to come and watch the calves having their morning milk and to learn about life on a dairy farm. Milking is twice a day and you are very welcome to come and see how the milk is produced in our herringbone parlour in the evening 4-5.30pm.
Every fortnight we have a vet visit where he will check for pregnancies, etc and once a month our foot trimmer gives our girls and sometimes the boys a pedicure. The chickens are a big attraction, where the children can collect the eggs or sitting and stroking the chickens is a good pastime
In the summer holidays we have a campfire twice a week after Pizza and Lasagne night. Who doesn't love a fire ? Chatting,watching the flames and toasting marshmallows while the children play and make new friends. Whilst you sit, relax and enjoy a glass of wine you can watch the children play in the sand pit or enjoy a cricket match and wheelbarrow races.
Close to Boswarthen
Of course Cornwall still has it's beautiful scenery and incredible coastline, it's many stunning beaches and the sunrise AND sunset - all available in a short distance from Boswarthen.
The most incredible beaches in this Country are here, there are too many to write about, 55 in fact, from Godrevy on the north coast around to Praa Sands on the south. Whether it's surfing, sailing, wild swimming or sandcastles then this area has it all. If you prefer to be away from the crowds then we have small beaches and beautiful coves too.
There are many dog friendly beaches too.
We can offer you some advice and personal recommendations if you have a problem choosing!
How lucky are we to be situated between two coasts ? We have the north coast with it's dramatic views and rugged rocks (where Poldark is filmed) or the south coast with its warmer breezes and pretty flowers.The moors have their own mysterious atmospheres and ancient stones.In fact Lanyon Quoit and Men An Tol are within walking distance and on Boswarthen we have the Wishing Well and Celtic Chapel.
We have books and maps for you to borrow from the Honesty Shop.
St Michael's Mount and the Minack Theatre both described as iconic, are unique to this area. St Michael's Mount probably the most famous of Cornwall's landmarks, is steeped in both legend and folklore. The Minack Theatre is an open air theatre built into the granite at Porthcurno (the most popular beach with all my guests)and performances run from May to September,with the very popular story telling for children in the summer holidays(booking essential).We are literally next door to Trengwainton Gardens with many other beautiful gardens close by.
Of course there are many other days out and things to do, all within a short distance of Boswarthen.
There are lot's of Must Do's in the area when you are staying at Boswarthen - Why not try Horse Riding on the beach? Or Kayaking, wild swimming, paddle boarding or sea trips for both fishing and to see the local sea life!
Maybe you fancy coasteering, rock climbing or mine exploration, then look at Kernow Coasteering.
