Bonython Estate Gardens is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm, closing 18 September 2020. We have enjoyed welcoming all our visitors again.
The Bonython Estate has evidence of residential occupation for over 1000 years! The original Manor Farmhouse, at the centre of the estate, is one of the earliest surviving buildings, with the central part revealing remains of a 13th century dwelling.
Much altered over the centuries, with additions and enlargements reflecting periods of increasing prosperity, followed by long periods of neglect. The present farmhouse has been completely renovated, modernised and restored in the past five years in its next “hundred year renovation”, which has happened in each of the last five centuries.
For price and availability of The Manor Farmhouse, please telephone 01326 240550
It now contains five individual bedrooms and bath/shower rooms, all en-suite, one on the ground floor and the others in two groups of two, each accessed by a separate staircase. This makes it ideal for large families or families sharing. WiFi is provided free of charge. A cot and high-chair are always available.
The situation of the Manor Farmhouse is incomparable, in a quiet sheltered part of the estate, largely protected from the force of prevailing wind and surrounded by its own acre of garden with distant views in all directions across estate farmland.
Ancient walls and hedgerows give privacy to enjoy the garden. Whether for playing, barbecuing or simply relaxing there is plenty of room for all the guests (maximum ten) to find their own space. Indoors the spacious and renovated rooms provide tasteful and relaxing accommodation. With a large sitting room, separate dining room, family room and farm kitchen and utility area; two televisions, a DVD player, and. outside, a laundry and boot store for wet clothing and muddy shoes.
Each of the five bedrooms is decorated in individual style with light, airy rooms and high ceilings open to the ancient rafters. Equipped with luxurious linen, cotton sheets and duvets, super-king size beds – the whole has been awarded 5-star status by the Cornish Tourist Board. The modern kitchen has three ovens, an American fridge freezer with ice maker, microwave, and enough cutlery, crockery, glassware and equipment for 16 people. A washing machine and tumble dryer are in the laundry room. .
A farmhouse that has grown and adapted over centuries retains a special timeless quality that engenders peacefulness in a way no modern building can. Combine this with the many beauties of the Bonython Estate to which guests have access at any time and the magical delights of the Lizard peninsula, and it is no surprise that many return from year to year.
