Bosloe is our beautiful country house venue in south Cornwall, set in gardens overlooking some of the most stunning coastal scenery in south Cornwall. Although we are not hosting a retreat here in 2019 we hope to return to Bosloe in future. 

Court view 2Bosloe has the feel of an elegant yet homely manor house in Arts and Crafts style. You will have a choice of spaces in which to write; your own room, the house’s spacious reception rooms, and peaceful spots in the garden.

Our guests enjoy free access to neighbouring Glendurgan, one of the National Trust’s most famous Cornish gardens. You can also walk in Bosloe’s own landscaped grounds which overlook the Coastal Path and the breathtakingly beautiful Helford Passage; space for contemplation and inspiration.

Address: Bosloe, Durgan, Near Mawnan Smith, Cornwall TR11 5JR.

By road: Bosloe is 15-20 minutes drive west of Falmouth – see this map. From Truro follow the A39 to Falmouth. After about 8 miles, once you are through Perranarworthal, go straight across the new single roundabout at Treluswell (where there are currently some roadworks), then continue along the A394 towards Helston. After less than a  mile you will come to another two roundabouts close together (known as the Treliever roundabout). Go straight across the first roundabout, keeping on the left, then take the left hand exit on the second roundabout, signed Falmouth A39. This brings you down to the Kernick roundabout, where you turn right following the sign for Mabe Burnthouse. After about a third of a mile you come into the village of Mabe Burnthouse. Take the left hand turning signed Mabe Church 1, Mawnan Smith 3, and Constantine 5. From here follow the signs to Mawnan Smith, for a couple of miles. In Mawnan Smith, follow the road through the village to the right of the Red Lion, the thatched pub. Continue along Grove Hill, out of the village. After about half a mile, turn left into the lane signposted Bosveal 1/4, Bosloe 1/4 and Durgan 3/4. You’ll see a small National Trust car park on your right, and the drive into Bosloe is the next on your left, through a stone gateway. Follow the short drive which brings you to the house, where there is plenty of parking. Please let us know if you are bringing your car and we can show you where to park when you arrive.
