We are Andy and Debby and we live in Boquio Farm where Cherwell Lodge is in our 7 acres of grounds adjacent to the house. We moved here in February 2012 and set about doing everything up as it was very run down and unloved! All is done but of course maintaining never stops! The views are wonderful and the set-up is lovely as the property is surrounded by our land and as we have three horses, we are able to see them from the house in which ever field they are in which is great, so we can watch them play from time to time and keep an eye out to make sure they are all o.k.
The Owner purchased this barn in 2012
We fell in love with Boquio when we came to view and first saw the property from the road, even though it was in need of TLC, the area, the views, land, house and just everything were what we were looking for. Andy had been to this area most summers for over 30 years and loved the beaches and all that was on offer, Helston a great little town, yet Falmouth, Truro and Newquay so very near and easy to get to, basically we are central to everything here which is great for us and any visitors.
I think the unique features are the setting of the property, it is quite different to most other properties round here, also the views and peacefulness, yet we are not isolated at all and of course we are central to beaches north, south and west and the great places to visit are all within easy access. Writing this out has made me realize yet again just how lucky we are to live here and it actually is our own oasis!
