What our guests say …
Lovely, cosy rural hideaway within reach of St. Ives and a good base for exploring the wider Penwith Peninsula. Spotlessly clean and well equipped for self-catering, though we highly recommend booking at The Gurnard's Head for a special meal. Loved the open plan living space and the grassed area in front of the summerhouse. Communication from Orange Roofs was excellent, and we would not hesitate to stay here again.
We loved this cottage. It was perfect in size, layout and functionality for 2 adults, a baby and a dog. The only thing stopping us immediately booking again is that it's on the main road, so you can't just walk out with the dog and buggy so wasn't ideal for our needs in that way, but will definitely be back in the future when the kid is older and easier to shove in a car! Lots of lovely walks nearby if just for you or with a dog though, we just couldn't get a buggy on the coastal walks! For dog owners - the garden is fully enclosed so no need to worry there, we felt perfectly safe letting out mad hound out in the garden unattended. The owners had left firewood for the extremely cosy fire and we used this several times and it really made our day on the more blustery wet days. Quite often you find places charge stupid amounts for this pleasure so this little touch was really appreciated! The team at Orange Roofs were also really helpful with any queries we had, and even went out their way to volunteer information of local events which was lovely of them (thanks Torrie!).
We stayed at Old Boswednack in Sept 2020 and chose to return again this June. The accommodation is very well equipped and immaculately clean. The proximity to Zennors beautiful coast and the lovely Tinners Arms were also a big draw. The booking process and pre- stay information from Orange Roofs made the trip very easy. Would highly recommend this property for anyone who loves Cornwall and coast walking.

Old Boswednack is a lovely renovated piggery a mile or so out of Zennor. It's warm and cosy with plenty of space in the living area to cook, chill and chat. The garden is a lovely place to sit and chat with coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening - or stroll over the Gurnards Pub for a drink and watch the sunset. Zennor is a lovely walk along the coast away for lunch at the cafe or pub. If you are feeling like a longer walk , St Ives is 6 miles along the same coastal path. Within easy drive are a number of beautiful gardens, the pick of which for us was Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens. Surfing beaches at Sennen are about 12 miles down the coast. We couldn't fault anything and had a thoroughly enjoyable week - we loved our romantic evenings in Old Boswednack.
