Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2014 Award winning characterful cottage set in it's own beautiful meadow at the end of a tree-lined lane, adjacent to the main farmhouse but very private. We are proud to offer you a unique holiday in central Cornwall, just a 20 minute car journey to either coast & only 10 minutes away from the famous Eden project. Almost all the furniture is handmade by the owner in a rustic style in keeping with the building, on a heart theme - a romantic getaway we think. Gather your own eggs in the morning laid by our free- range chickens & cook breakfast to eat on your terrace or sit & listen to the wildlife over a glass of wine around your own picnic table in the meadow.There are Bluetooth speakers in the bedroom so you can listen to music from your bed or when sitting outside. Cosy up in front of the wood burner in the winter months. If you have any leftover bread then call the chickens & watch them run across the grass to see you, hilarious to watch! We have 2 gorgeous moorland ponies & a shetland who will come up & nuzzle you, especially if you have carrots or apples to hand :-)
June 2014 - We have 14 new born chicks from our hens & have just collected some ex-battery hens to give them a better life, so no shortage of eggs!
You are welcome to bring your dog on holiday with you for a small extra fee. We do ask however that if they are not used to chickens that they are kept on a lead until the chickens are in bed as we have had some near misses! We are just a 5 minute walk from Retire Common, a 127 acre conservation area renowned for its rare breeds of butterflies - perfect for walking your dog or indeed a gentle stroll after your evening meal. We also have a spare stable so if you would like to come on holiday with your horse & enjoy the local countryside then please do contact us.
Want to bring a couple of friends & pitch a tent in your meadow? Again, this can be arranged for just £20 per night per tent - contact us for details. Although we only accommodate 2 adults you may of course bring your baby/young child at no extra charge as long as you are able to bring a travel cot. We welcome cyclists & walkers & secure storage is available in one of our outbuildings. Bikes can be hired nearby & they will deliver on the Friday before you arrive & collect from us the following Friday.
If you are arriving by train then we would be happy to collect you from either Bodmin or St Austell station.
Internet is available but please be advised that due to the rural location it is not always guaranteed - so frustrating for us :-( Therefore, if you were planning on working on holiday (why would you?!) then this may not always be possible!
Electricity & underfloor heating is included. A basketful of wood is included for the woodburner in winter with additional supplies available.
We are here every day if you need any help with anything from ideas on where to eat or visit or if you just fancy coming across to join us for a chat. Usually wine in the fridge which we are quite happy to share!!
We love to cook here at Lower Colbiggan & you will be welcomed by a homemade cake of your choice & tea & coffee making facilities so you can put your feet up & relax as soon as you arrive. Water is from our own well here & we think it tastes amazing.
If you are thinking of booking with us just a point to bear in mind that is that the last 10 metres of the lane to the main house gate is not tarmacced so can be a little bumpy if you have a sports car that is low to the ground. Passable of course with care.
Check out time is 10 a.m. with arrival from 4.00 p.m onwards.
We hope to be able to welcome you soon.

The West Country region
Set in central Cornwall, we are near to many beautiful beaches & coastal paths, just 20 minutes away. Nearby Bodmin Moor & Dartmoor are lovely places to walk also. Visit the famous Eden Project, Heligan Gardens & even Lands End which is only an hour's drive. You could even take a day trip by plane or ship to the Isles of Scilly, a truly magical place. We have extensive knowledge of the local area so just ask & we will do our best to help you.
The beauty of our location is that we are truly central to it all! Padstow, Newquay, the picturesque port of Charlestown famous for its tall ship, are all within easy reach. There is also excellent shopping in the attractive city of Truro with its famous cathedral.

"Lower Colbiggan the hidden gem of Cornwall"
As stated above, Lower Colbiggan Farmhouse really is the hidden gem of Cornwall.. Not only due to the location where it is easily commutable to just about anywhere in Cornwall (you are less than 5 minutes away from the A30) but the people who own the Farmhouse.
Lee and Debbie were absolutely incredible hosts, I read the reviews and viewed the pictures prior to booking and with a 5 star rating across the board our expectations were set pretty high and I'm more than happy to say that not only were our expectations met, they were exceeded!
Upon arrival we were greeted at the gate by Debbie who had a freshly baked carrot cake and loaf of bread waiting for us; both of which were delicious and didn't survive the week, in addition to this once we unpacked our bags both Lee and Debbie were happy to formally greet us with a drink and good conversation.
Oh and the horses! They were absolutely incredible :) the only negative that I can possibly think of would be the signal/Wi-Fi but this was advertised and seeing as we were in the heart of woodlands, fields and farms it was expected.
To summarise, we had an amazing trip seeing the Eden Project, Newquay, Charlestown and a port village by the name of Fowey.
Lower Colbiggan was a home away from home, I went with my girlfriend to celebrate our anniversary but Lee and Debbie clearly put a lot of thought and effort into personalising each stay.
I have recommended staying here to family and friends and I would happily recommend paying a visit to this beautiful location and experience it for yourself.
