Boconnoc House details

Boconnoc House is a fine country estate tucked away along two miles of private roads. The house was beautifully restored by the Fortescue family over a 12 year period and retains the elegance of the Georgian era but with the 20th Century comforts and luxury we expect today. Retaining many original features the drawing room has wonderful decorative classical mouldings, plaster cornicing, coving and ceiling roses. There is an exceptionally beautiful painted staircase depicting four goddesses.
Situated amongst rolling parkland, you get a real sense of magic as you drive through the gates and weave your way up to the house where you are transported to the elegance and ambiance of a by-gone era. Surrounded by woods and farmland, it is the perfect location for large house parties with 9 bedrooms and bathrooms, four large reception rooms (two of which have log fires) a kitchen and library filled with books along with a projector for movie nights, it has everything you need to entertain large numbers of guests.
There are lovely walks throughout the estate around the deer park and lake, through the woodlands and up to the obelisk. The estate is tranquillity itself, affording a peaceful and away from it all holiday. There are many lovely locations to sit amongst the gardens, listen to the sounds of birdsong and water flowing and appreciate the truly Cornish landscape.
At certain times of the year, the estate is host to a wide variety of events. Please click here to look at the calendar.
