About Richard and Camilla Parsons

Richard and his mother Jacky were dairy farming just a few miles away, and following the decision to sell the farm in 2013 they moved into Venndown Farmhouse at the end of 2013. The holiday apartments are now run by Jacky and Richard, and Richard's wife Camilla.

Jacky lives on site in the farmhouse adjacent to the apartments, where she also runs a B&B.

Richard and Camilla Parsons purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Richard and Camilla Parsons chose Boscastle

Venndown Farmhouse offers a peaceful location, with the benefit of being just as short drive to the local village of Boscastle.

What makes this apartment unique

The indoor heated pool and poolside hot tub, which are available May to October, are a great asset to our lovely holiday homes.
