A unique and charming escape for two

Perfectly created for two, Little Boseglos offers a unique and spacious hideaway for couples or friends. Originally a mid 18th century cottage, this landmark house has been sensitively renovated to present first class luxury living with Little Boseglos occupying the rear wing of the house. The Gothic revival extension of the property was completed in the mid 1800's by the architect GE Street who was a pupil of William Morris and also designed the Royal Courts  of Justice in the Strand, London. A beguiling mix of opulent fabrics, country kitchen chic, relaxed living room and an indulgent boutique bedroom await behind your holiday door. The riverside village of Lostwithiel has so much to offer from strolls along the bank, a country ale, slap up supper or good old hunt around the antique shops.
