Bosorne is a single-storey bungalow conveniently located within easy reach of Newlyn and Mousehole. Penzance and the historic town of Marazion with Mounts Bay sweeps round and is overlooked by St Michaels Mount perched on its rocky outcrop. Just a short stroll down to the sea front, the fishing harbour at Newlyn, pubs, art galleries and the long wide flat promenade that runs from Newlyn to Penzance town and harbour. Bosorne is a comfortably furnished property accommodating four guests and equally appealing to couples and families all year round. There is a fully enclosed rear garden with lawn and patio area, spacious conservatory with sea glimpses and distant views to Newlyn.
The area is vibrant all year round attracting traditional summer beach lovers, walkers and bird watchers with the popular marshes just outside Marazion attracting twitchers from around the world. The area is well known for its art and culture, with the famous Newlyn School of Art offering short courses. Newlyn Art Gallery and museum is just a short stroll away. There are numerous independent shops and galleries along with cafés, tea rooms and pubs all serving good local food and ales. Newlyn is a working fishing harbour and guests can purchase freshly caught fish daily.
The picturesque harbour and small village of Mousehole with its winding streets, pretty cottages and small well-kept sandy beach, is a magnet for visitors. A sheltered sun worshiper’s haven in the summer, storm watching and wild beach walks in the winter and of course the famous christmas lights stretching from Newlyn to Mousehole, ensure Xmas and new year visitors return year after year.
There are good transport links and a local bus service to Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole. There is a Main Line railway station at Penzance which is just a 10-minute taxi ride for guests who want to arrive by train. Bosorne is in an ideal place to explore West Cornwall including Lands End, the Minack Theatre, Sennen Cove, St Ives and much more. Beach ½ mile. Shop ¼ mile, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
Bosorne was so comfortable and extremely well equipped. Great place for exploring West Cornwall and beyond
A pleasant bungalow on the outskirts of Penzance. Lovely outlook from the back garden, comfortably furnished and well equipped.
Immaculately presented. No dishwasher so we had to do the dishes the old fashioned way 😀 Owners could not do enough for you. On a steep hill but a bus stop at the end of the road if you didn't want to use the car. Highly recommended
Well-equipped and clean property in a good location. Lots of thoughtful touches from the owners, who are always happy to help if needed. Five minutes walk to Newlyn and 15 minutes walk to centre of Penzance. Would happily return.
We had a fantastic week in this comfortable well equipped bungalow in a quiet residential area with a lovely view from the conservatory of the garden and Newlyn beyond. We cannot fault it. Able to walk down the hill into Newlyn and on to Mousehole one way and into Penzance the other way along the promenade. It makes an excellent base for sightseeing in West Cornwall. The owner is very helpful and is a text away if necessary, living locally and we really appreciated the welcome pack that was left for us on arrival. Would highly recommend this bungalow.
Our stay October, 2019
Bosorne was so cosy and comfortable with everything we needed, including all necessary kitchen equipment. It was extremely clean on arrival. It was in a very quiet location and we slept very well all week, with the comfortable beds. The conservatory was very good for relaxing and reading while keeping an eye on the birds in the garden. The bungalow was well situated for walks into Penzance and along the coastal path to Mousehole and also easy to access the main roads to visit National Trust properties and other tourist destinations. The weather wasn’t too good while we were there but it was always nice to return to Bosorne for warmth and home comforts. We enjoyed our holiday in Bosorne and can highly recommend. We will certainly return in the future.
