Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Pretty single storey cottage standing across the courtyard from our 18th Century Farmhouse. The interior is full of character with mellow stone walls, Cornish slate and exposed roof trusses. The property is built on the site of an old Cistercian Monastery, some ruins of which are still visible today. Beautifully set on the outskirts of the village, a stream runs through the grounds with a small waterfall, millpond, old clapper bridge and woodland.
The cottage is equipped to a high standard with comfortable furnishings and lots of paintings, pottery, books and flowers. There is an open plan living/kitchen area with a wood burning stove. A bright, cheerful double bedroom and a smart shower room with power shower. Electricity is included. Central heating included in the price during the winter months.

|Further details indoors|
On opening the door you enter the living/kitchen area where bright painted walls contrast with the stonework. There is a comfortable sofa and hand painted table and chairs along with a wood-burning stove. You will also find a T.V./DVD player, ipod dock, CD/radio and a good supply of books, videos and board games. The kitchen, with its hand made, painted units and bright tiles, is compact but fully equipped with an electric cooker, ceramic hob, fridge (small freezer compartment for the scrummy organic ice cream made locally), microwave and washing machine.
The bedroom is warm and inviting (as long as you like colour) with a 4’6” bed and a king size duvet so there is no arguing about who has a cold back! The shower room (sorry, more colour) has a power shower, loo and vanity unit so there is plenty of space for the various lotions and potions that I know David and I seem to cart everywhere.
|Further details outdoors|
Outside an enclosed courtyard, with its water feature, tree ferns and sculptures, is a riot of colour during the season, then a myriad of white fairy lights in December. This is shared with us although we usually tend to sit the otherside of the house so as to leave you in peace. A table, chairs and fire pit/BBQ are outside Mole's in the hope that we will have plenty of balmy summer evenings for you to enjoy.
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
The area 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.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.).
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.
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..
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.
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.
The parish of St. Keverne is the largest, and one of the most important historically, in Western Cornwall, lying within the district known as "Meneage", from the Cornish Meneghek meaning "monastic". It extends over some 10,300 acres, and by virtue of its great size, was from an early date divided into four distinct areas or "Turns" viz. Turn Bean ("little"), to the north-east; Turn Traboe, the north-west; Turn Trelan, to the south west: and Turn Tregarn, the east. All four met at the Church Town, or "Lankeverne", which formed a separate district in its own right.
