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.

    Good Cottage all amenities were satisfactory. Clean everywhere. Expected garden to be grass, but all concrete Bed very good, bathroom had everything that was required.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your review of your stay in The Hen House. We are sorry you expected grass in the garden as the information on the website clearly states it is a patio garden. We let guests use the adjacent lawn and fields which are all grass and noted that you and your dog enjoyed at least twice daily walks on the grass in the fields. We hope it did not spoil your stay too much.

    The visitors book showed that someone had been there on seven occasions - that says it all. Proprietor very friendly and interested where we had been and offered places to consider.

    The cottage was comfortable and spacious for two, but some additional crockery would have been helpful so that one didn't have to use the dishwasher every day.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review of your stay at The Hen House. We are sorry you felt you didn’t have enough crockery, as it is not something that anyone has commented on before. However, in case it proves an inconvenience to others we have now topped up the crockery so that there are six of everything for two guests staying.

    We loved our stay at the hen house, our hosts were so friendly and helpful. The cottage was exceptionally well equipped and the welcome basket, cake and milk were a lovely touch. It’s great to be able to make a cup of tea when you arrive after a long journey. Lovely location with fantastic private outdoor space and a beautiful view. We often visit the area on holiday and found this cottage a perfect base for local attractions including the camel trail. We would definitely come back, we had a lovely holiday.

    Warm welcome from the owners David and Jennie. A much appreciated basket of goodies in the kitchen, milk in fridge, and a very tasty cake baked by Jennie. The Hen house was so well furnished and comfortable, we will hopefully book in again+
