There was everything we needed to make our stay very relaxed, very well equipped and very comfy. We will definitely be recommending Bossy Castle to our friends and will be returning in the future.

The house is fully equipped and really comfortable and clean. Garden is big with patio area to sit in the sun and bowling green area at the bottom of the garden which the kids enjoyed. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to explore north Cornwall. Lots of beautiful places to visit nearby. The only thing I would recommend is a tumble dryer so that clothes can be dried quickly but that is the only negative I could think of. Will definitely return.
