Description

We are a small farm, now non-working except for a few chickens and friendly dog Meg. Our two cottages, Rose and Bryony, were converted in 2011 from former cowsheds by the architect Nigel Stock, and are furnished with furniture from MARK Product - our contemporary furniture business. They are all on one level with views across fields and each has a private west-facing deck with seating and barbeque. You are free to roam over our eight acres with a stunning view from the top taking in the span of Cornwall from north to south coasts. We are also close to many of Cornwall's finest beaches on the north, south and west coasts. A perfect base for a Cornwall holiday.

Bryony is our smaller cottage. It is ideally suited to a couple or couple with a baby. There is one double bedroom, a bathroom and an open plan living area - all on the same level.

Location description from owner

The England region

Location and access

We have a very central location in Cornwall - most of what the county has to offer is within easy reach. We are on a quiet lane a mile or so from the A39, so very accessible by car. There is a bus stop a mile away with regular buses to Truro, Redruth, Falmouth and Helston. The nearest railway station is at Penryn, 3 miles away.

Beaches

Our central location means you can access beaches on the north, south and west coasts according to the weather and your inclination! The beaches in Falmouth (15 mins) and south to the Helford River are sandy, bounded by rockpools, and renowned for their diving, sailing and kayaking. North coast beaches (20-25 minutes) are reliable surfing beaches, linked by stunning stretches of coastpath. To the west, the Lizard offers renowned beaches such as at Gunwalloe (30 mins) and Poldhu - perfect beaches that never seem overcrowded even on the finest day. For surf reports and beach cams - www.magicseaweed.com

Penryn


The city of Truro and towns of Penryn and Falmouth are close by with abundant pubs, restaurants and shops. Penryn is the closest (5mins) - a small, quiet town with much character and history, and now the home of Tremough, Cornwall's university campus - www.tremoughcampus.com. Falmouth is a lively town (15 mins). It boasts the third deepest harbour in the world (after Rio and Sydney) and has a proud seafaring history. Now home to the thriving art college, and with its cinemas, and award-winning art gallery, it has an energy about it which sets it apart from more sleepy Cornish towns. Truro (25mins) is Cornwall's capital and home to its best shops and the Hall for Cornwall with its varied programme of theatre www.hallforcornwall.co.uk. Other towns such as Redruth, Helston, Camborne, are all within half an hour. St Ives, Newquay and Penzance are only a little further.

Attractions

Walking

From Higher Lidgey there are many lovely walks. Just walking up our lane Wood Hill is particularly lovely - it's a double avenue of mature beech trees and differs with every season as daffodils, primroses and bluebells come and go in turn and the leaves change their colour. Also from Higher Lidgey the walk to the old gunpowder mills at Kennal Vale is a popular choice - this deep wooded valley contains the ruins of a long gone industry and is very evocative with its many aqueducts and rusting water wheels. We are spoilt for choice for other walks, but walks around Flushing and Mylor, Trellissick, Mawnan Church, Porthtowan, Prussia Cove and Godrevy are among our favourites and in easy reach.

Cycling

Apart from simply touring the lanes, there is a network of safe cycle paths following the old horse-drawn mineral 'tramways', which pre-date the railways. Bike hire is available nearby at Bissoe.

Watersports

It's hard to know where to start. Surfing, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing, kite-surfing, sea fishing are all available close by, with a choice of wild Atlantic beaches, secluded coves, rivers and estuaries, and of course the Carrick Roads, Falmouth's mile-wide harbour. We can advise on the best places to go to hire equipment and book lessons. We are also just two miles from Stithians Reservoir, a major centre for watersports in Cornwall.

Pubs and Restaurants

This part of Cornwall is well served for both pubs and restaurants. Our own local pub - the Stag Hunt in Ponsanooth - has a music night on a Thursday which is friendly and fun and even better, in walking distance! If you turn up without an instrument you will be in a minority but made to feel very welcome. Better known are the Pandora Inn at Mylor, The Ferryboat on the Helford River, The Golden Lion in Stithians, and in Falmouth the Chain Locker. Restaurants in Falmouth include Rick Stein's, Hunkydory, the Cove, Indaba Fish, and a recent discovery, the amazing Wheelhouse which specialises in local seafood.

Gardens

Also very famous in this part of the world, the legacy of the Victorian plant collectors, and of the mildest climate in the UK. The National Trust's Trellisick, Glendurgan and Godolphin House are all nearby. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a day trip (45 minutes). Also there are charming and less well known gardens like Trebah, Enys and Pottager.

Children and babies

One of our fields contains a treehouse, zipwire, trampoline and swing and there are plenty of trees to climb and good places to make dens. Higher Lidgey is the sort of place where kids don't want to come in for tea even when it's getting dark! Children are welcome to help feed the chickens and collect eggs or bring wood in - there is always something fun to do.

As well as the attractions listed above, for younger visitors there is Raze the Roof soft play in Penryn, Ships and Castles fun pool in Falmouth and swing parks in Stithians and Ponsanooth. Stithians (2 miles) also has a skate park. We can provide a baby-listening or baby-sitting service. Please contact us for details.

“Best kept secret in Cornwall”

Reviewed 20 Jul 2015

Pleasant surprise: so beautiful! A true paradise for our children, they had lots of space and things to discover. A treehouse, swing, zipp-wire, trampoline and animals to take care of. The cottage itself (Rose cottage, next to Byrony cottage) had a very nice vibe. It was clean, very nicely decorated, high standard, privacy and a fantastic view. There were lots of activities to do in the area. Kids definately want to come back next year. So maybe we will. We definately want to.

“Lovely modern cottage in lovely rural location”

Reviewed 18 May 2015

The cottage is well equipped and has modern furniture, the owners are welcoming but discreet. The rural location in the Cornish country lanes is so peaceful and restful. We took our little dog who had room in the enclosed garden to play and we walked down the lane which was full of wild flowers - bluebells, campions, wild primroses to name a few. The chickens were quite comical and friendly and kept us amused! Lovely little cottage in an idyllic location with beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, highly recommended.

“Perfect holiday cottage”

Reviewed 13 May 2015

Bryony Cottage is the perfect holiday cottage in a perfect location - surrounded by beautiful countryside yet only a few minutes drive away from Falmouth, the best town in Cornwall. The cottage is light and airy with large windows yet warm and cosy with a wood burner and free logs. You can lay in bed and watch the rabbits outside the window and the owners kindly allow you the freedom to walk across their fields where there are far reaching views.

“Beautiful cottage in rural surroundings.”

Reviewed 7 May 2015

If you want a friendly cottage in peaceful surroundings then this is the place for you. The situation is perfect if you want to access the coast and local attractions, but return to a very peaceful location overlooking fields with sheep and cows. As the garden is sheltered it is a perfect sun trap, so you can just relax and BBQ. The cottage is warm and welcoming and we really enjoyed our 2 week vacation. We were sorry to leave. It is a little gem.

“Perfect Escape”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2014

Bryony Cottage is wonderful. All the facilities you need for a really comfortable and relaxing break. Being able to sit on the decking on a September evening with a glass of wine and watch swallows was a real treat

Owner's reply: Many guests comment on the "away from it all" feel of the cottage and conversely the accessibility of it to many great places to visit and enjoy. The modern and comfortable design of the cottage enables you to relax quickly and enjoy the holiday in comfort.

“Wonderful cottage just perfect for the two of us”

Reviewed 2 Oct 2013

We liked this cottage which is very well fitted with smart, modern furniture and fittings. There are large picture windows overlooking fields. Outside the large glass doors is a patio with barbecue where we could eat and relax in a peaceful seeing. Although you feel you are in the middle of nowhere your are very near many interesting places. In about 15 minutes you can be into Falmouth and in about 30 minutes to Truro. The beaches are lovely with clear water for swimming. The National Trust properties of Trelissick and Glendurgan are nearby and there are many other gardens in the area. There are also many lovely walks. We had a perfect holiday and thought it all super.

Owner's reply: Our cottage is designed so that space and light are maximised. Our guests really appreciate the open views and private space that is created whilst also staying in an area close to many places to visit and enjoy.

“Idyllic rural retreat”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2013

Highly recommend this holiday property set in a picturesque corner of Cornwall, accessible to a swathe of breathtaking beaches and fantastic local amenities. The cottage combined stylish modernity with all the traditional comforts. We enjoyed excellent facilities and a warm helpful welcome from the owners. Can't wait to stay again especially as you can collect fresh eggs daily from their hens on a nearby meadow.

Owner's reply: We delight in being able to offer the cottage due to its location and carefully chosen internal design to maximise the light, space and furnishings. We're very close to many places to visit and enjoy that often there are too many choices! Instead you can choose to relax within the cottage's tranquil setting.
