Fantastic holiday. Perfect for little children. With chickens wondering around all day clucking and ducks quacking you really feel immersed into farm life. The children loved swimming, feeding animals, playing at the park which included a large sandpit, enormous Wendy house and trampoline. They also enjoyed the play barn, large green slide, zip wire and gruffalo walk.
The farm house was beautiful with the perfect feel of country life and mod cons.
They really have thought carefully about a family’s needs. I usually have to pack so much stuff but with the ability to borrow wellies, buckets and spades, dvds and a host of other things it just made life so much easier from the start of the holiday right up to unpacking. If you are a tired parent/grandparent etc looking for an easy holiday or even just looking for a fab holiday with plenty to do within easy reach look no further. They have a large Asda superstore just down the road, large washing machines (should you need it).
Dave, Paul and Helen were so genuinely friendly for pleasant daily chat or on hand to sort any issues (immediately I might add).
We travelled a long way to go but absolutely well worth it!!

Hi Niccs99 Thank you for your delightful review, and sharing your happy memories of staying with us here at Bosinver. We have worked hard to take the stress out of holidaying with small children, because we do appreciate just how much 'stuff' is required to keep kids and their parents (and sometimes grandparents too) happy, hence we have tried to make organising your holiday as stress free as possible. We hope that not having so much to unpack from their cars ..equals a holiday that can start as soon as our guests open their cottage doors.... We are so pleased that you and the children enjoyed all the many facilities around the farm. I will happily pass on your kind words to Farmer Dave, Paul and Helen who all love to get involved with making your stay here on the farm as Magical as possible.
I hope we will be welcoming you back to Bosinver again very soon

Travelled here for a week with in-laws, daughter, son in law and granddaughter. What a brilliant place. Virtually everything has been thought of so you really don’t need to go anywhere else (or spend any more money) for the whole week. They even sell local farm eggs and frozen meals if needed. There is animal feeding, a swimming pool and loads more. Granddaughter is 3yrs 9 months and there is just so much for her to do. My daughter is already talking about coming back next year. We stayed in Lowen, great house, low energy (hence the name!) and nicely situated. A little close to the bypass and with the solar heating etc it was a bit hard to sleep! Either too hot with the windows shut or too noisy with them open. But mainly we would come back again and again.

Hi lindajanem2016 Thank you for leaving us such a terrific review, it is always brilliant to see multi generation families enjoying lots of fun and quality time together here at Bosinver, where we are delighted to offer our guests lots of diverse facilities to suit all ages, and as you say all these choices can be sampled with no extra charges to worry about. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay in Lowen so much, it is a very special house, and you are quite right in thinking that the name is derived partly from low energy, but equally in the Cornish Language the word signifies 'Happy' so it seemed to us to be the perfect name.I am thrilled that you are thinking about returning to Bosinver again and again, we love to welcome guests back for repeat visits.

I’m not sure where to start!
We had the most magical family break at Bosinver. From our wonderful cottage ‘Coliza’, to the fantastic facilities, to the thoughtful extras like body boards and beach equipment available to borrow, everything made our stay wonderful.
Nanny Pat’s Adventures was brilliant to help us plan our holiday, we downloaded it before we went and planned lots of days out from there.
It was great to be able to return home after a busy day and still have lots to do. We especially enjoyed swimming in the clean, hydrotherapy temperature pool every day.
We look forward to visiting again!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a wonderful review. We were delighted to hear that you made such good use of all the suggestions in the 'Nanny Pat adventure books, all of these ideas have been tried out personally by Nanny Pat and her grandchildren, so our guests can be confident that each and every one will be well worth a visit. Thank you for all your lovely comments regarding our 'fantastic' facilities, we try hard to supply as many extras as we can, to make for a memorable and stress free holiday for all our guests. Its great to know that you found the pool inviting enough to pay a daily visit. I sincerely hope we can welcome you back again soon to enjoy even more Bosinver 'magic'

We just returned from our 9th stay at Bosinver, and have already booked our 10th. We've been going since the kids were babies, and we really thought that they would have outgrown the place by now. But each year we go, we find that a whole raft of new adventures has opened up to them, and they always insist that we book for the next year. When they were younger, they loved the play barn and the slides, and the gruffalo trail, and the animal feeding (well, they still love the animal feeding). But now that they are a bit older, they love having the freedom to run around on the site safely with the other children, enjoying the rope swing, games room, and different fields. Never at home or on other holidays do the kids have this kind of freedom, and they absolutely love it. Thanks to all for such a super week.

Room Tip: Every cottage is nice!

Hi KathLondonUK Thank you so much for your lovely review, It is always very special for us, when our returning guests take the time to share their Bosinver experiences. We are particularly delighted to learn that as the children have grown up, they now enjoy the freedom that our 30 acres of meadow and woodland allows them, giving them the chance to ditch all their usual' technology' for the chance to run wild and free to their hearts content. Farmer Dave is cock-a-hoop that the children still enjoy his animal feeding sessions in the mornings, I strongly suspect a lot of the grown ups enjoy that time too! We are thrilled that you have booked for your 10th stay here on the farm, and we are really looking forward to welcoming you back to sample some more of the Bosinver 'magic.

I took my family, 2.5 yo, dog & disable dad and from the moment we arrived we were looked after and continued having fun (while relaxing) during the week we stayed. Once you are there you don't have to leave (unless you want to go to pub or supermarket), there is enough to keep everyone occupied.
Every event is fun and well run.
You can tell owners and staff love what they do because it shows on their face even during the events they do everyday.
Could not recommend Bosniver anymore, deserve every exception review they get.

Room Tip: All cottages offer different things. Research which best suits your needs.

HI Penrose007 Thank you for taking the time to share your Bosinver experiences, and giving us such a wonderful review. You are quite right in thinking we love what we do here at Bosinver, nothing gives us more pleasure than seeing our guests relax, unwind, and enjoy their holiday to the Max. We aim to provide the best possible environment, where hard working Mums and Dads (and Grannies and Granddads too) can spend quality time having fun together with the children. We are delighted that you have taken away 'Forever Memories' and we sincerely hope that we can welcome you and the family back to Bosinver again very soon.
