The property is set well back from the road approached over a long stone surfaced lane leading from the Council maintained road and is about 1 mile from the hamlet of Crows an Wra.

Land's End is the most westerly point of mainland England with an airport about 2 miles away. The village of Sennen has a good range of local facilities including the historic First and Last Inn, church, shops, fish and chip takeaway etc. and is on the road leading to Sennen Cove which has a beautiful and popular sandy beach, lifeboat station, car park, café's and pubs etc. The nearby Drift Reservoir is popular with anglers and bird watchers. The property is within easy reach of dramatic stretches of the West Penwith coastline with spectacular walks along the South West Coast Path which lead to a string of beaches and coves including Porthgwarra, Lamorna Cove, Porthcurno and Penberth Cove nestling in the cliffs. The Minack Theatre near Porthcurno is an impressive amphitheatre, built into the cliffs and holds live performances during the summer months.

The harbour town of Penzance has an extensive range of services and amenities including schools, hospital, supermarkets and shops, sports and recreational clubs, restaurants and café's etc and ferry link to the Isles of Scilly. There is a mainline railway station with trains to London Paddington.


Boscarne Vean is a traditional granite stone built 3 bedroom cottage under a slate roof in need of some renovation and improvement originally forming part of a larger farm. There is a yard area to the side of the cottage with a range of useful stone outbuildings including former stables/cows houses, former piggery building and a larger two storey barn with single storey section with planning for residential conversion (PA17/04141 approved on 30th June 2017).

Historic records suggest that there was a residence at Boscarne Vean in settlements dating back to the 13th century. The cottage in its unrestored state retains much charm and character and has superb rural views over Penwith towards the sea in the distance.

The cottage together with the stone barn with permission for conversion provides an ideal arrangement for a main residence with additional accommodation for holiday letting or dependent relatives etc. Further development of any of the other stone buildings will require approval from the vendors the Bolitho Estate.

The stone surfaced drive leads to a yard with parking and turning area and a path leads to the front garden enclosed by low Cornish stone walls with lawned area.
