Boswarthen Farm glamping near Penzance, Cornwall offers glamping in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with stunning views of the sea, St Michaels Mount and the Lizard. Cornwall has it’s beautiful scenery and incredible coastline, many stunning beaches, sunrise AND sunset – all available in a short distance from Boswarthen. We are a conventional working dairy farm with our Holstein Fresian herd, ponies, chickens, ducks and a couple of sheep. Our milk is sold to DairyCrest for cheese, so if you eat Cathedral City or Davidstow Cheddar then the chances are that our milk will have helped to produce it.
We have a choice of accommodation – a two storey tent, yes that’s right a two storey tent. Three safari tents and a gypsy caravan which comes with a bell tent.
THE GLAMPING TENT
Our tents are a spacious 9×5 metres and also have an area at the back for the toilet and a veranda on the front. The main area is a big enough space for a kitchen unit, woodburning stove (with oven), a dining table with six chairs, a sofa and an insulated chest for your chilled items. We have also provided a portable gas stove perfect for quick cups of coffee.
There is enough space for everyone to stand up and move around freely. The main bedroom has a king size bed, there is also another bedroom which contains bunk beds as well as a ‘cupboard bed’ which is enough space for two people (it has a 4’6” mattress). The toilet at the rear also has a hand basin.
The floors are wood which is easy to clean and hygienic, just perfect if you have any nasty allergies. I know this doesn’t much sound like a tent but it does have canvas walls. Oh, and it comes fully equipped with pots and pans so no need to clog the car up with anything other then your Partner, your Children and the Dog (only if you are bringing any of them of course)
THE GLAMPING LODGE – the first one of it’s kind in Cornwall
A two storey tent ! can you believe it ? this is in principle like our other tents except that it will has a mezzanine floor which creates an upstairs.
Downstairs has a living space, a kitchen, a woodburning stove (with oven), a dining area, a Jack and Jill cloakroom and two bedrooms each containing a kingsize bed, a veranda provides you with a fantastic view of St Michael’s Mount and the Lizard Point. Now for the exciting bit – there is a ladder which leads you to the upstairs where there is an open plan sleeping area with four single beds.
In total, this tent will sleep up to eight people – if you want to accommodate smaller children then please ring me as this tent may not be suitable for you.
THE GYPSY CARAVAN
Our gypsy caravan is situated in the same field as our tents. It is placed in a secluded spot but doesn’t exclude you from all that goes on (unless of course you prefer it that way). You will have a fabulous view of St Michaels Mount – when we had a tent here it was one of the most requested ones. A Bell tent is sited next to Rosie making it ideal for older children, this has a wood burning stove and bed, we can also fit a travel cot in here (but do remember that the stove is in here.
Rosie, a real beauty and named after our cat, is a bow top wagon and is classed as an ‘open lot’ which means she is sat on the chasis of a dray cart, this type was very popular from 1930. In the old days these wagons were very ornate with elaborate designs and interiors it was a way of showing the owners wealth and were their prized possessions. We however, are farmers and have no wealth therefore she is plain in comparison but is tastefully decorated and will not detract from your experience.
Please note: Rosie is not suitable for tall people or pets
We are delighted when our guests use our shop as we offer good quality local produce at competitive prices. It is not possible to compete with the supermarkets but we believe in asking a fair price as we do not like to be ‘ripped off’ ourselves. Our beef is from our own herd and all other meats are from a butcher who is supplied by local farms so no added water!
The most incredible beaches in this Country are here, there are too many to write about but 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.
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.
JEWELS IN OUR CROWN
St Michael’s Mount and the Minack Theatre both described as iconic, are unique (thankfully)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 (booking essential)with very popular children’s performances in school holidays.Of course there are many other days out and things to do, all within a short distance of Boswarthen.
