Boconnoc Estate, Lostwithiel
Whole Country House, Enchanting Library, Sleeps 18
Steeped in years of history and oozing with an understated elegance, few venues offer true country escapism like Boconnoc House. This stately home sits at the heart of a spectacular country estate in Lostwithiel, Cornwall. Surrounded by immaculate gardens and acres of land, it can be hired exclusively for holidays, short breaks and weddings.
If you've ever dreamed of living out your period drama fantasies, then a candlelit supper in the wood-panelled dining room is just the ticket. Seating up to 18 people, you can enjoy dinner under the gaze of original family portraits and be warmed by the fire. Alternatively, spend a fairytale evening cosied up in the library with a glass of wine in hand and your favourite novel to keep you company.
Lay your head down in one of the nine personality-filled bedrooms. Many of the rooms are ensuite and offer exquisite views, sumptuous duvets and crisp linen sheets. From luxurious doubles to tasteful twin suites, up to 18 people can sleep comfortably under Boconnoc's stately roof.
