HESKEN COTTAGE, BOSCASWELL
Full of style and detail, this delightful home is ideal for those seeking a chic yet cosy getaway. Set high above the Atlantic, sits the exceptional Hesken Cottage. With ever-changing views of the stunning, surrounding landscape and coast, this meticulously designed and decorated home is the perfect base for exploring all that ‘Poldark Country’ has to offer.
Ideally located deep in the rugged Far West of Cornwall, Hesken Cottage is aptly named after the well that used to run by the cottage. With views of Geevor Tin Mine, which was at one time at the heart of the Cornish mining industry and old mine shaft relics dotted along the coastline, you really feel among Cornwall’s rich history here.
The house itself offers a comfortable, homely retreat to escape to at the end of the day with plush interiors and plentiful amenities. Neutral shades of blue, grey and white make the cottage an invitingly calm space throughout and the ultimate escape from the pace of modern-day life.
Hesken Cottage is wonderfully located at the end of a private lane within a small village in the heart of the far west of Cornwall. The area around Pendeen is a really magical place, often referred to as ‘Poldark Country’, it is in many ways untouched by modern-day life with its tin mining relics and unspoiled coastline. If you’re looking for a walker’s paradise to explore off the beaten track then the comfort of this wonderful home is the perfect spot to do so.
From the doorstep you can see and walk straight to the outstanding Pendeen Lighthouse, historic Geevor mine, or peaceful Portheras Cove, a stunning locals beach. For surfers, hop in the car and you can be down on Sennen or Gwenver beaches, both a short drive away. You won’t be disappointed by the stretch of golden sands, dunes and crystal-clear water and popular surf break.
At the end of a day of beaching, head to one of the local pubs: The North Inn is lovely for a sundowner in the garden or good pub grub. Maria Chica’s is a small independent café serving up exceptional tapas style dishes and there’s Lil's Chippy for fish & chips.
The wonder of Pendeen is that you’re never far from some of Cornwall’s best bits - grab an ice cream from the Moomaids Café in St Just square only 10 minutes away, or dine out in St Ives in less than 30 minutes or spend the day on the magical St Michaels Mount.
Painstakingly refurbished and redesigned by the owners, with their own family in mind, the open-plan living space feels immediately inviting with gorgeous, natural lighting flooding the whole space. Sit back on one of the sumptuous velvet sofas and snuggle up in front of the wood burner or take in the lush garden views stretching out to the Atlantic coast beyond.
The living room exudes stylish comfort and it really is the quintessential space for gathering all of the family or group to unwind in front of a film or get involved in a board game.
The glass room with its rocking chair offers the most idyllic warming spot at any time of the year. Sit back, relax and plan the adventures ahead.

WHAT GUESTS ARE SAYING...
“Second time we have stayed at Hesken Cottage. Peace, tranquillity and stunning views. Weather for the week was awful and it didn’t matter a jot. Plenty of things to do, with some great pub and restaurant lunches. The Cornish Way think and take care of everything making for a completely relaxing holiday.”
Terry & Gaye – November 2023
“The location and views are amazing. It’s perfect for bringing your dog with a lovely safe lawn for them to use. Very relaxing space and sunset views every night!”
Dana – October 2023
“We stayed in Hesken Cottage for the first two weeks of September. The most beautiful views you can imagine of the land and sea at the end of the garden. Amazing. Very private with lots of space. Superb beds and mattresses for a great night's sleep.... Large fully equipped kitchen, lovely French doors out to the very large private garden... As we were staying for two weeks the housekeeper kindly and unobtrusively checked in with us to check on anything we needed which was a nice touch and the gardener who was charming and welcoming did similar. And finally, Lowenna and team at The Cornish Way couldn’t have been more helpful and accommodating of our needs. You felt they were there to help you. And it’s dog friendly too!
Malcolm - September 2023
“What an idyllic place to relax and unwind. Very well-appointed cottage with absolutely fantastic views of the iconic Tin mines and the Ocean. All amenities, local shop, pubs and restaurants, a short drive away. We cannot recommend the agent, Cornish way highly enough. Sebastian and his team couldn’t have done any more to make our stay perfect. We have stayed in many parts of Cornwall over the years, but without a doubt the far west of the county is very special. Thank you for a great holiday.”
Terence – March 2023
“We loved this house and its location. If you're looking for a relaxed, cosy, well equipped home with the most amazing views you cannot go wrong booking this one. The house is beautifully and thoughtfully styled, the kitchen has everything you could need, and comes with a thoughtful, yummy local produce welcome gift. The bedrooms are well-appointed and comfortable, so important when you are traveling. The wood fire was most welcome on the chilly nights and really kept the house warm… Cannot recommend Hesken Cottage highly enough, we loved it and the beautiful Cornish Coast.”
