Company Description

Boconnoc is a family run business and the main house and surrounding holiday cottages are used for weddings, events and corporate retreats. Our intention at Boconnoc is to make all guests feel as though they are staying in a family home, their own home essentially.

The house and surrounding grounds are breath-taking and there is a magic about Boconnoc that so many comment on when they visit. Our aim is to make anything possible for guests but to do it subtly so they hardly notice we are there.

The house was restored over a 12 year period and now has 9 bedrooms and 4 large reception rooms. There are 3 holiday cottages above the house so 40 can stay onsite in total.

There is a huge amount of potential and anyone joining the team is coming in at an exciting time.
