Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Tregoning and its two cottages are tucked away on the outskirts of St. Keverne, which is on the east side of the beautiful Lizard Peninsula, the most southerly part of England.Tregoning Manor is an early 18th Century Cornish farmhouse built on the site of an old Cistercian Monastery, some ruins of which are still visible today. The property is beautifully set in 10 acres within a few minutes walk of St. Keverne. There is a stream running through the grounds with a small waterfall, millpond and an old clapper bridge leading on down to the woodland area where you are welcome to wander. We live in the main house so are usually on hand to help if you have any problems.
The Lizard Peninsula, a largely undiscovered treasure, is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Lovely beaches, dramatic cliff walks and the romantic Helford River. Historic houses and gardens, family attractions, art galleries galore and good restaurants are all within easy reach.
Priory Cottage is the larger of the two cottages. It was once a barn and now been converted into a charming upside cottage with lots of woodwork, beams and deep window-sills, comfy snuggle into chairs and a very efficient woodburner.
We have tried to think of everything to make your holiday as happy as possible so both Priory Cottage is bright, cheerful, well equipped and welcoming. Pictures and pottery abound with flowers and a welcome pack to greet you on arrival. Furnished with old pine, hand painted furniture, comfortable chairs and wood-burning stoves, they are a place to relax, unwind and enjoy exploring the area.

The open plan living room/kitchen is reached by stone steps leading up to a stable door. A pale pine kitchen with pretty tiles is equipped with electric cooker, fridge (small freezer compartment), a washer/dryer, microwave and ample crockery etc. The sitting/dining area has lovely views out over our garden and down through the wooded valley which leads down to the sea.. There are comfortable furnishings and a wood-burning stove, which together with a T.V./DVD player, ipod dock and CD/radio make it perfect for those evenings when you want to stay at home and unwind with a bottle of wine or simply to collapse in comfort after an energetic walk.
Downstairs there is a double bedroom (4'6” bed with king sized duvet – David always hogs the lot with anything smaller), a twin bedded room with hand-built old pine cabin beds and a smart bathroom with a shower above the bath, underfloor heating, bright Agatha Ruiz tiles and ample space for your own bits and pieces. All the downstairs rooms overlook the enclosed private patio where there are a table and chairs and a fire pit/BBQ for those warm summer evenings – fingers crossed!!
There are books, board games, toys and a selection of DVD's. A cot and high chairs are available if required and there is also a stair gate. All electricity is included in the price as are linen and towels, we only ask that you please bring your own beach towels.
There are electric panelled radiators throughout the cottage, which along with the stove make this a cosy winter retreat as well as a wonderful place to while away a week or two during the warmer months.
|Further details outdoors|
There is a private courtyard with garden furniture and a fire pit that doubles as a BBQ. An enclosed "Mowhay" across the footpath is for guests in both cottages to use and a shed there houses various outdoor games for you to use if feeling energetic. You are welcome to wander across the two fields when there is no livestock in them and also through our small woodland.
Private off road parking for up to two cars is available.
Most dogs are welcome by arrangement but we do not accept Rottweilers, Dobermans, Alsatians, Pit/Bull Terriers or young puppies. (see conditions).
Both properties are available all year (including Christmas and the New Year), also for short breaks out of season.
We do ask that dogs are kept on a lead at all times around the house and courtyard at Tregoning and please do not allow them on the furniture/bedding or leave them unattended in the cottage.
The West Country region
Cornwall has recently been designated a European Cultural route of Parks, Gardens and Landscape and the gardens down here have some of the most unique plant collections in the world.
St.Ives, Penzance, Falmouth and the Cathedral City of Truro are all within easy reach; as are St. Michael's Mount and many other National Trust houses and beautiful gardens (Trebah, Glendurgan, Trelissick etc.).
The Tate Gallery at St. Ives, Lands End, the open air Minack Theatre perched on the cliffs at Porthcurno, the Eden Project and the recently opened National Maritime Museum all make an enjoyable day out. There are several leisure parks for family outings:- Flambards, The Seal Sanctuary, Poldark Mine and Paradise Park to name but a few..
The Lizard Peninsula is well known for its outstanding beauty and varied scenery from the magnificent coastline, sandy beaches and famous coves, to Goonhilly Downs and the wooded valleys and creeks of the Helford river.
St.Keverne itself is one of the main villages on the Lizard. It is a friendly community set around a square with an imposing church, a chapel, two pubs, a few shops and a post office.
There are also some good restaurants in the area for those evenings when you do not feel like cooking. For those of a more energetic nature, the Lizard is a wonderful place for walking, especially the awe inspiring coastal path.
