With three bedrooms at the centre of the 16th century Manor Farm courtyard


Originally thatched, and the Estate Manager's residence, upper parts of the building  incorporated a pigeonnery within the thick granite walls. Converted and modernised for residential use some forty years ago, Mews Cottage has recently been enlarged and updated by incorporating a part formerly used as a private Chapel.


Now comprising three large bedrooms, each with its own bath or shower room and WC, two are upstairs and one on the ground floor. There is a dining hall, separate kitchen with breakfast table and charming sitting room with a 32” flat-screen TV. Both dining and sitting rooms have wood burning stoves. WiFi is provided free of charge. A cot and high-chair are always available.


For price and availability of Mews Cottage, please telephone 01326 240550


All rooms face south across its two private courtyards, one with gravel and sun loungers and the other with lawn. Parking at the rear is accessed from the Estate’s private road, adding to the peace of the setting.


Furnishings are modern and tasteful and luxury equipment enables guests sharing to enjoy considerable comfort. Beds are equipped with high-quality cotton sheets and duvets. The kitchen is complete with crockery, cutlery glassware and utensils to cater for most occasions. The courtyard has a small outbuilding with barbecue.


The beautiful and renowned Bonython Estate Gardens are available to guests to enjoy the tranquility beyond the cottage’s own courtyards. For those who want to explore further, the magic of the Lizard peninsula is close by. Guide books are available to help the intrepid – though many parts are now rightly famous – Southern Cornwall retains quiet places, even in the height of summer.

The Mews Cottage

A guest's review ...


"Wonderful cottage which is part of the Bonython Estate on the Lizard Peninsula. It's not specifically for children, but they can provide high chair and cot and there were a few toys in a basket. We received a wonderful welcome pack with tea, cake, bread, etc...and the cottage was spotless.


"But the main draw is the proximity of several typically Cornish coves. During our 10 day stay we only visited any beach once or twice. There's plenty to do if it rains, and te cottage is within the grounds of the Bonython Estate and you can wander round their wonderful gardens, which is great for Grandparents who perhaps don't want to be on the beach all day."
