    “Beautiful house only a 10 minute drive from Falmouth.”

    The house was beautiful and clean, the beds extremely comfy. All the little house comforts you would need for a lovely stay are in this house. Bridget and Mark very accommodating. Wonderful stay. Thank you.

Boskensoe Barns

Head to the sought after village of Mawnan Smith and along an idyllic country lane to this cluster of four boutique barn conversions (including Pig House ref: 966634, Mill House ref: 965738, The Stable ref: 966635 and The Long House ref: 966636), surrounded by mellow countryside and positioned in a pretty courtyard setting on a working farm. Guests will love the luxury of this location which combines the simplicity of rural life with easy access to the South Cornish coast path and beaches. The beautiful creeks and woodlands of the Helford are under a ten minute drive. You can hire a motor boat, kayak or dinghy, explore the Helford Passage on water and stop for a sumptuous seafood lunch and a refreshing hand-crafted Cornish ale at the waterfront Ferryboat Inn. For traditional beach days out, the beautiful sandy cove at Maenporth is less than a 10 minute drive and perfect for swimming, sun-bathing and rock pooling. A string of golden beaches and fabulous Falmouth, with its good pubs, restaurants, art galleries and shops, are located a little further along the coast. Soak up Falmouth’s nautical vibe with a visit to the National Maritime Museum and bustling marina or sail along the beautiful banks of the Fal River to St Mawes on the Roseland and Truro. For garden lovers, the nearby Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens are a must for the holiday itinerary. Return from coastal escapades and relax in the shared garden with a pergola, garden furniture and a barbecue while the children let off steam in the play area complete with a climbing frame.

About the location


Falmouth 6 miles ; Helford Passage 1.5 miles ; Helston 12.5 miles

Located near the mouth of the Helford River in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Mawnan Smith is a pretty little village. It is home to a traditional pub overlooking the water, a restaurant, a church and a handful of shops. The surrounding area is perfect for ramblers, with an abundance of creekside and woodland walks, and subtropical gardens at Glendurgan and Trebah. The Helford River also offers opportunities for kayaking and sailing as well as fishing. The nearby maritime town of Falmouth is a popular resort, with a range of shops and restaurants, bowling alley and the National Maritime Museum…. Or why not catch the ferry from Helford Passage to Helford Village and explore the picturesque South Helford? Enterprise Boats offer trips up the River Fal from Falmouth to Truro, passing iconic maritime locations and landmarks as well as several ocean-going vessels which anchor in the river.

Mill House is on a smoke free complex.
Note: Check-in time 5pm.
Note: Construction on a small ‘bat house’ (4m x4m x2m high) is due to start from the 10th August 2020 and will last for approximately 7-8 weeks (until early October). The ‘bat house’ will be located to the rear of the Long House and although there will be no visual disturbance, some of the work taking place may be audible from the garden of Mill House. Work begins from 9am until 5pm. Whilst it is not anticipated this will be of a level to detract from the enjoyment of your stay, as a goodwill gesture the owner would like to offer a 10% discount for any potential disturbance.
Note: Work will begin from September 25th on a new barn conversion opposite Mill House which is anticipated to last until June 2021. The owners will be erecting a hoarding alongside the garden fence to help limit any visual and sound disturbance. The first phase at the end of September (anticipated at 3 weeks) includes the removal of the fibre cement roof and wooden inner frame. This work will involve the use of a loader and electric hand tools. The second phase of work (which includes the demolition of the ground floor and re-build of the new barn) will immediately follow on from late October. As it is anticipated there will be some disturbance due to the work, the owners would like to offer a goodwill gesture of 25% for any inconvenience. Please note that work takes place Monday – Friday only (weekend visitors will be unaffected) and no work will take place over Christmas or New Year.
Note: Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the communal play and BBQ areas are temporarily closed for guests safety. The owners are currently following government advice and regularly review the situation with a view to reopening once they feel it is safe to do so. This property does have its own private garden and BBQ.
