We're still collecting donations

On the 8th July 2020 we'd raised £1,430 with 10 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Help The Residence at Bolenna to Survive and Thrive 

We are raising funds to invest in our beautiful, boutique hotel in order to enhance the guest environment and to create more local jobs in a community affected by the Covid-19 situation.

Our Story

Last year we took over a tired bed and breakfast and began to create the dream of a beautiful little boutique hotel themed around increased pollination, sustainable plantings and exquisite service.

With the exception of the stunning wildflower meadow we had created at the front of the hotel, the garden had to wait until we had refurbished inside and served our guests. 

Just as we were about to turn our attention to the gardens this terrible global COVID-19 pandemic hit.

Bouncing Back

This has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses - including The Residence at Bolenna. Those of us in the hospitality trade have little hope of moving forward this year, but we hold on to the fact that people will definitely want to return to our wonderful piece of the world once more.

We will meet again!

We still want to be able to give guests the most beautiful and sustainable setting to enjoy after we come out the other end.  

How Your Support Helps

This investment will help us not only secure the future of The Residence at Bolenna but also transform the gardens and create local jobs in an economy hit hard by the pandemic.

We have a long growing season ahead of us and plenty of time to work on our large undeveloped plot during this period where our hotel has had to remain closed and we cannot generate the income we need.

Our vision is to feed people’s souls through inspirational and sustainable planting, helping guests and local visitors to recover from all the stresses and strains of this pandemic.

The completion of the garden will bring the setting of the hotel up to the now beautiful standard of the interior and we do need your help for us to survive this dramatic blow to the season.

With the help of the community and our friends old and new across the world, we can make The Residence at Bolenna a landmark destination for vacations in Cornwall.

Please pitch in to make this happen. Be one of the first to come and enjoy the space we are creating and the food we can offer once we are permitted to re-open the restaurant.  We will use the funds to prepare the ground, plant and landscape as soon as possible to make the most of the growing season.

Thank you!
