Bosvean House

Comfortable Friendly Bed and Breakfast Accommodation in North Cornwall only 2 miles from Bude on the Atlantic Coast

As former restauranters we love to entertain and enjoy the company of guests in our home. Good food and comfort are important to us and also ensure that your stay is memorable.

Bosvean House is open from the beginning of May until the end of September and can accommodate 6 people in 3 en suite bedrooms.  We have furnished the house with French and English vintage furniture personally designed by us to be a family home. The rooms all have tea/coffee making facilities with welcome treats and bathroom extras.

In the morning your wake-up call will be the sounds of the local birds and lambs calling. The views are stunning with the bedrooms looking out over open countryside.

A short walk along the bridleway takes you into Stratton with its famous “Tree Inn” restaurant and bar. If you prefer traditional Cornish and Devon ales, try The Kings Arms in Stratton. Stratton is less than 2 miles distance by road. The fantastic Bude beaches can be reached within 5 minutes – only 2 miles away.

We know you will enjoy your stay with us at Bosvean House,

Local Area

The area around Bosvean house offers footpaths and bridleways for a spot of rambling. We are a short drive from Ivyleaf Golf Course and Driving Range and Ivyleaf Mounting Boarding Centre as well as the fantastic Norton Barton Artisan Food Village.

Beaches

Bude and Widemouth Bay are both within a few miles and offer fantastic beaches, plus access to the coastal footpath. Both are popular with families and surfers and provide excellent facilities (including tuition, hiring of equipment and wetsuits). Other beaches within easy reach are Crackington Haven, Trebarwith, Polzeath, Newquay and Daymer Bay.

Exmoor, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor

About 20 miles to the south lies Rough Tor, one of the highest points on Bodmin Moor. Steeped in legend and full of archaeological heritage, the moor delivers rugged beauty and breath-taking walks. Daphne Du Maurier’s Jamaica Inn lies less than 25 miles. Exmoor lies 30 minutes to the north. Dartmoor lies less than 30 minutes away to the south east.

Towns and Villages

Wadebridge, Bodmin, Bude, Launceston and Padstow are all within easy reach, providing good local shops and produce. Padstow is the home of Rick Stein and has several restaurants and retail outlets associated with the famous chef. Directly across the estuary from the village of Rock (popular with the royal family), it also houses a lobster hatchery, working fishing harbour and provides boat trips.

Among the many villages worth a mention are Tintagel with its castle and legends of King Arthur and the idyllic fishing village of Port Isaac where the popular Doc Martin television series was filmed. All within 30 minutes drive.

Historic Houses and Gardens

There are important historic houses near Bodmin include Pencarrow and Lanhydrock. A visit to Cornwall would not be complete without a trip to either The Eden Project or The Lost Gardens of Heligan – both within an hours car journey.

These are just some of the places in the area to visit. There are many others. Whatever you enjoy doing while you are here you can be assured of a warm welcome upon arrival and a beautiful home to return to at the end of each day.
