In superb locations and beautiful settings. Cottages4you gives you a fantastic range of hand-picked properties with quality you can rely on.


A semi-detached, bungalow-style property, nestled on a grassland farm just 5 minutes from Boscastle. An excellent base for exploring Cornwall.

These properties lie on the owners’ working mixed grassland farm, in a superb holiday location between Bodmin Moor and the north Cornwall coast. The Bull Pen (28055) and The Cow Shed (28056), have been converted from a traditional barn and are furnished and fitted to a very good standard. Both have a large kitchen/dining area, a wood burner in the living room, French doors and Juliet balcony in one double bedroom and a private, enclosed patio and garden area to the rear, ideal for morning coffee or an evening barbecue. The Hen House (28054) adjoins the owners’ farmhouse; it has a private patio area to the side to enjoy alfresco dining with country views. Boscastle is a 5-minute drive, with walks, harbour, shops, pubs and restaurants. Down the coast is Port Isaac, of TV series Doc Martin fame, where The Fisherman’s Friends sing live on the Platt on Friday summer evenings. A little further is Padstow with shops, pubs and restaurants including Rick Stein’s famous fish restaurant. From here you can take a ferry across to Rock to try the variety of watersports or walk or cycle along the Camel Trail, a haven for birdwatchers. The sandy beach at Trebarwith Strand is 4 miles. Within easy reach is horse riding, National Trust properties, the south west coastal path, golf courses at Bowood and Bude, surfing at Polzeath and Widemouth Bay. Shops, pubs and restaurants 3 miles. The Hen House (28054), The Bull Pen (28055) and The Cow Shed (28056) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    A very nice and relaxed holiday we were left alone by the owners. When we arrived there was a fresh baked cake and farm fresh eggs and a mixture of teas

    A very friendly welcome, cake and flowers, awaited us at the Henhouse. Situated near the beautiful Boscastle and ideal for exploring Cornwall we had a wonderful week. Our hosts could not have been friendlier. Dogs were not just allowed, they were welcomed with towels and bed left for their comfort. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

    Very nice accommodation with quality furnishings and all the equipment you could want. The location and immediate area are for those wanting a quiet and peaceful holiday but close enough to beaches, walks and places of interest. David and Jennie, the owners, are lovely hosts and always ready to help with advice and information. All in all a wonderful relaxing holiday - just what was needed.

    After a warm welcome from Jennie and David we were invited into the Hen House . We were immediately impressed with the furnishing and cleanliness. Everything one might need was provided, including a delicious home-made cake, milk, eggs, tea etc. The location was ideal for visiting many resorts and places of interest. Even when the weather was not so good we were quite happy and comfortable staying in. Plenty of books, DVDs and games all provided. We will certainly return if we plan to visit Cornwall again.

    The cottage was very comfortable and spotlessly clean with everything needed for a good stay. The owners were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. A nice touch was the welcome tray. I would most certainly stay there again.
