Out & About

Bosilliac Holiday Cottages are half a mile away from the village of Mawnan Smith which offers good local amenities with several shops, a hair dresser, craft workshops, Italian restaurant and the Red Lion pub.

The busy port and harbour of Falmouth is just 5 miles away from Bosilliac, providing a good variety of shops, sailing and watersports facilities, beaches and interesting attractions to visit including Pendennis Castle and the National Maritime Museum Cornwall. From Falmouth, there are passenger ferries to St Mawes and the Helford
to enable you to enjoy the coastline from the water.

For those guests who enjoy walking, the coastal paths along the Helford Estuary and the numerous country paths
and lanes surrounding Mawnan Smith are easily accessible.

The Helford River and the sandy beach at Maenporth are within a 5 minute drive where you can swim in the beautiful coves and enjoy the views across Falmouth Bay. There are many private and National Trust gardens within easy reach of Bosilliac with Glendurgan and Trebah the closest.

If you are looking for an activity holiday there is plenty to choose from. Cycling along the Bissoe cycle path, fishing and sailing on Stithians Lake, horse riding can be booked at Chiverton Riding Stables, near Truro and, of course, watersports activities are readily available.

There are many opportunities to visit and explore the area on foot to study wildlife and local history along the paths of the World Heritage Site at Kennall Vale Nature Reserve, and discover the rich history of
Perran Foundry and Gwennap Pit, just a few miles away.
