Boconnoc, Lostwithiel, Cornwall
Boconnoc House, the winner of the 2012 HHA/Sotheby’s Award for Restoration was bought with the proceeds of the Pitt Diamond in 1717. Three prime ministers, a history of duals and the architect Sir John Soane play a part in the story of this unique estate. The beautiful woodland garden, the Georgian bath house, Soane stable yard, 15th century church and romantic landscape tempt the explorer.
