BFB's Overview

Skylarks is a picture-perfect boutique barn for a couple plus a baby or two enjoying a peaceful setting on the Bolotho estate near Falmouth and within a short drive of many of Cornwall's best beaches, harbour towns and excellent eateries.

The barn is one of just two on the estate and both were painstakingly renovated and fitted out to a very high standard in early summer 2010. Now, each stylish cottage boasts a double bedroom with huge sleigh bed, a bathroom with both romantic roll-top bath and an invigorating walk-in shower, a spacious, open plan living area with high spec kitchen and all mod cons (dishwasher, microwave, washer dryer etc.), plus a large private patio with high quality teak dining furniture and loungers.

There are boutique hotel-standard touches a plenty with 500-thread count Egyptian cotton linens on the beds, cosy dressing gowns, luxurious locally made toiletries provided in the bathrooms and Bose IPod docks, flat-screen TVs, Blue-ray DVD players, complimentary Wi-Fi and fabulously romantic log burners in the lounges.

The interiors are a stylish mix of contemporary country cottage and French glamour, all against a muted template of chalky whites and grey-blue tones, accessorised with local artworks. Outside, the courtyards are both secluded, neither overlooking the other and both ideal for long lazy evenings listening to the birds and relaxing with a bottle of wine whilst junior is tucked up the cot provided. There are also acres of grounds that guests are welcome to explore. An apple and cherry orchard lies just beyond the courtyard the cottages are set around. It frames a glorious view of rolling fields leading down to a small woodland with a stream in the valley. Neighbours include the occasional deer as well as many of the wild birds who make their home at Bolotho.

A handy list of nursery gear is provided including a cot with bedding, baby bath, baby crockery, spoons, socket covers, a small basket of toys and a highchair. The baby gear, combined with the fact babysitting is available on request or gourmet ready meals delivered for a special night in, make a stay at Bolotho an ideal romantic escape for new parents with just one baby in tow. Golf, yacht charter, surfing, windsuring and in-cottage beauty therapy can all be pre-booked

Please note: Whilst there's plenty of room in the bedroom for up to two cots, those with older toddlers may find it less suitable as there are not additional beds.

Location Information

Skylarks is one of two cottages set around a courtyard on the Bolotho estate just outside the village of Kea between Turo and Falmouth on Cornwall's south coast. There's a beautiful 18-hole golf course alongside the cottages, a grocery shop within a mile's walk, a country pub within three miles and a long list of beaches and coves within a short drive.

Build up an appetite by hire bikes (babyseats available) and following a trail from nearby (3miles) Bissoe Bike Hire and then toast your good work with a late lunch at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate Bay. Families are positively encouraged during the day and its the best time to soak up the fabulous views of the beach and surfers. Alternatively, try posh fish and chips at Rick Stein's Fish, Chips and Oyster bar in Falmouth (7miles).

Introduce little ones to furry friends at the National Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, take a boat trip across to the Roseland Peninsula on the King Harry Ferry, or try a real life Thomas the Tank Engine day out at the Bodmin Steam Railway. Alternatively, give junior an early intoduction to the arts with a trip to the Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden in charming St Ives, or stumble on the magical woods cafe and playground after a walk through the beautiful Cardinham Woods.

Nearest Medical Services (GP & A&E): Carnon Downs surgery (1 mile), Truro A&E (3 miles)

Who owns this place?

We are Frances and Steve Grant and we're delighted to welcome you to Bolotho Barns. We moved here and converted the barns from 19th century stables and farm buildings in 2010. The conversions took six months and our objective was to create the kind of perfect holiday cottages that we would like to stay in ourselves. We opened for guests in August 2010 and have enjoyed meeting all our lovely guests ever since.
I am originally from Cornwall, returning here 12 years ago with my family and I have a background in the travel industry, interior design and property renovation. Steve has an IT background with a keen interest in sailing. We both enjoy all watersports.
We are very excited about welcoming guests to this beautiful part of Cornwall. We hope you love the barns as much as we do. Guests are welcome to explore the 12 acres of field and woodlands.
