Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Heron Cottage is part of the Lambriggan Court estate and is a wonderfully peaceful and relaxing retreat. Our cottages are appointed to a luxurious standard and our guests tell us that they feel instantly at home here.
Our grounds extend to around 8 acres and there are many beautiful spots to relax, perhaps watching the moorhens on one of our lakes, swinging in a hammock on a sunny lawn, spending time with our chickens as they go about their business or enjoying an aperitif in the evening sun that catches the courtyard garden.
Heron Cottage has a lovely wood burning stove which really comes into its own outside of the summer months after a bracing walk along the Atlantic coast!
There is a choice of gorgeous beaches just a few minutes drive from Lambriggan Court. Perranporth has 3 miles of wide, golden sand while picturesque Trevaunance Cove has stunning views.
We take our environmental responsibilities seriously. Heron Cottage is heated using a geothermal heat exchanger and its water is from our own borehole (with state of the art filtration processes). We also provide recycling facilities.

The bed in one of the bedrooms can be set up either as a super-king size double or as twin beds. All of our beds have luxurious pocket sprung mattresses and fine linens.
It is possible to add an extra double bedroom to your booking by reserving The Furniss Suite. This is a large, self-contained suite situated just across the courtyard from Heron Cottage. Our guests have found it ideal if they are holidaying with another couple, parents or older children as it gives privacy and independence without the need to book a whole extra cottage (with another kitchen which is not needed). Please see The Furniss Suite tab for more information.
The West Country region
In the last decade Cornwall has emerged as one of the world's iconic destinations.
From the dramatic coastline of the north to the sheltered bays in the south, from ancient moorland to soft river estuaries, surfers, walkers, sailing buffs, gastronauts and visitors simply seeking a break from a hectic world have discovered a fascinating, vibrant culture, food to die for and a naturally thrilling adventure playground.
Cornwall has been a natural home to inspiration, art and ideas since the early 19th century. So much so that, apart from London, you'll find nowhere in the whole country that's host to more working artists than Cornwall. The county's dramatic landscape has also provided the backdrop for many a film and TV production.
As a county Cornwall boasts the longest stretch of coastline in the UK with almost 700 km of stunning coastal scenery including more than 300 beaches. This coastline forms a significant part of the South West Coast Path National Trail which offers visitors to Cornwall a huge choice of walks from gentle one hour strolls to week long hikes.
Cornwall is in the privileged position of having two coastlines: the Atlantic coast famous for its surfing beaches and huge expanses of golden sand, and the English Channel coast which is more gentle with hidden coves and tranquil creeks.
Cornwall doesn't only offer visitors an amazing coastline - you can also immerse yourself in some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country. There are 12 separate sections covering the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These are precious landscapes whose distinctive character and natural beauty are so outstanding that it is in the nation's interest to protect them. These areas include the Camel Estuary which is famous for its tidal river valley which at low tide provides essential habitats for its wildlife, Bodmin Moor with its wild expanses or rolling moorland and prominent tors, the Lizard Peninsula which is criss-crossed by a fascinationg network of medieval enclosures and Bronze Age settlements, and the Helford River which is technically a drowned valley or "ria" comprising of gently wooded creekside which are sheltered from the prevailing winds by the Lizard Peninsula.
Lambriggan Court occupies a peaceful rural location around 2 miles from each of St Agnes and Perranporth.
St Agnes is an authentic and charming village with a tin mining and fishing heritage. It has a lovely beach at Trevaunance Cove surrounded by high cliffs which give it shelter from prevailing winds. It also has a good range of traditional pubs, shops and galleries.
Perranporth boasts a 3 mile stretch of wide, golden sandy beach. It is a great surfing beach and the surf culture is a real presence here with numerous surf shops lining the main street. There is also The Watering Hole, England's only pub that is situated right on the beach. It is a great place to have a drink and watch the beautiful sunsets that Perranporth often gets, facing almost due West. Perranporth also has a good range of local shops.
Truro, the capital of Cornwall, is only 8 miles from Lambriggan Court. It has an impressive cathedral and many shops, galleries and a museum.
