Bonython Farmhouse, renovated a to a 5-star standard with five en-suite bedrooms, is perfect for a Cornish seaside holiday. The Lizard Peninsula offers that beautiful unspoilt mix of Cornish magic with world-renowned beaches and numerous fishing villages,

Situated on the Bonython Estate, Bonython Farmhouse has been renovated to a 5 star standard. It is a beautifully furnished, detached property occupying a very private position on the edge of the Estate. The accommodation has been designed with great thought and style for the privacy of the occupants including all five bedrooms being en-suite.

The beautiful Bonython Estate Gardens, which guests are welcome to explore, comprises some 20 acres with a recently renovated walled garden and potager and a hidden valley with three small lakes. The gardens are one of 'The Great Gardens of Cornwall'. Bonython Estate is a traditional mixed agricultural Cornish estate with ancient manor, farm and woodland stretching almost from one side of the Peninsular (the Helford River) to the other (the beach at Poldhu Cove) with both shores just over a mile away.

The Estate is close to the amenities of the small towns and villages nearby. It is perfectly placed for exploring the beautiful coves and coastal pathways, the majority now owned by the National Trust. The Lizard offers that beautiful unspoilt mix of Cornish magic with world-renowned beaches such as Kynance Cove and Kennack Sands and numerous fishing villages including Coverack, Cadwith and Mullion, famous for Cornish crab and lobsters.
