About Us

We are Frances and Steve Grant and we're delighted to welcome you to Bolotho Barns. We converted the local stone and slate tiled barns from 19th century stables and farm buildings in 2010. The conversions took six months and our objective was to create the kind of perfect holiday cottage that we would like to stay in ourselves. We opened to guests in August 2010 and have enjoyed meeting all our lovely guests ever since.

Bolotho farm, as part of the Killiow estate, dates back to the 6th century and has passed through several powerful Cornish families. Bolotho is surrounded by farmland and woods and is a really tranquil spot, yet is ideally located to explore all of Cornwall. Guests are welcome to explore our land and enjoy the views.

We supply local produce wherever possible, such as: Cornish jam, Cornish clotted cream, locally grown Tregothnan tea, Simply Cornish biscuits, Cornish sea salt, locally baked bread, freshly laid eggs from a local farm as well as Pure Nuff Stuff Cornish natural bubble bath/shower gel and soap.

We also try to be aware of our environment. We encourage recycling and composting and we use Ecover environmentally friendly cleaning products throughout the barns. For guests without a car, we are happy to pick up from the local train station or airport and advise on public transport. We welcome walkers and cyclists and provide guidebooks and cycle storage.

We are happy to offer information on local places to visit, activities to try (we are particularly keen on any kind of watersports!) and advice on the best local pubs and restaurants.

We are very excited about welcoming guests to this beautiful part of Cornwall and we hope you love the barns as much as we do. It's also lovely to see so many of our guests return here every year.
