Kids go wild at Bosinver

Our kids helped us make Bosinver what it is, we know yours will love it too!

At Bosinver it is literally our job to be down with the kids and to make it fun for the older ones as well as the younger ones – we understand that what entertains children changes as they grow. Our haven offers primary aged children their first experience of independence, allowing you to relax knowing this is a safe space for them to explore. We have woodland and a lake, play areas with rope swings and tyre swings with acres of wildflower meadows to run free.

Plenty of things to do

There is a heated indoor pool for swim sessions, a DVD library for them to choose something for family film night and a dedicated Wild Kids Club session where camp leader Tatum caters for all ages, fireside toasted marshmallows included of course! Each morning the kids are free to join Farmer Dave for his animal feeding sessions – he knows the perfect balance between guidance and independence for each child and feeding the ducks, chickens and goats is a great way to start the day for all the family.

Primary school kids

We understand that primary aged children have different needs to their younger siblings so we’ve tailored our experience to what excites them most. As well as the Bosinver classics that everyone enjoys such as the animal feeds, pony rides, Wild Kids Club and the indoor pool, they’ll love our onsite welly trail or habitat hunt, a visit to the local village shop for fresh cooked pasties or game, set and match on our onsite tennis courts. As a family you can explore the delights of the Eden Project on our doorstep, cycle the Camel or Bissoe bike trails or stay and play here on-site where we are sure to have something to educate, entertain and excite those more mature imaginations.

There is something about Bosinver that keeps everybody young that visits, like a magical Never-Neverland where play is the order of the day. Soak it up and explore our sanctuary, reveling in the sound of children’s excitement by day then enjoying relaxation by the fire when they are tucked up tight. Each of our cottages has the highest hygiene standards and cleanliness is always guaranteed. Our cottages have everything you could need for older kids and younger ones alike and we can even recommend local food boxes or arrange freshly cooked meals to will be waiting for you in your freezer. Less time in the kitchen, more time in the countryside – that’s always been our mantra. 

Secondary school kids

If perhaps you have a child at secondary school you might worry that they are a “bit too old for Bosinver”, but Bosinver is incredible for teenagers too, discovering their independence and wanting some space. We are perfectly placed to explore Cornwall with surfing lessons only a short drive away at Watergate Bay or sessions at the popular nearby Porthpean outdoor activity centre. They could try their hand at canoeing at Golant or Charlestown or learn to sail a dinghy at Fowey or Restronguet. Parents can drop them off to enjoy outdoor pursuits or allow them the freedom to hang out here and be a big kid again. In a world of social media and digital devices, sometimes the best thing is to switch off and visit a remote rural area to reconnect with themselves and nature. They might be too cool for school, but you’re never too old for Bosinver…… 

Our 5 star farm experience offers the rustic beauty of nature with the facilities and furnishings expected of luxury accommodation. Playful and colourful, designed for exploration and imagination, Bosinver specialises in young minds and wild hearts, re-awakening the child in everyone. A safe space to roam that has hosted families for over 20 years. We have considered every single element of your Bosinver experience, from pre-walkers to primary school, tots to teens – we have you covered. Our home is your haven.

Go wild and run free.
