Details

This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Part of the old farming settlement of Triggabrowne, Fortescue is one of several farm buildings converted into comfortable holiday cottages. It is a substantial and traditional stone and slate barn adjoining Pitt. Both have superb views over miles of unspoilt open countryside and working farmland. Fortescue has its sitting room on the first floor to make the most of them.

Also in the vicinity are Dairy Cottage,The Farm House and Tippett's. Just a short walk away are the semi-detached Meadow Cottage and Triggabrowne Cottage.

There are lawns around all the cottages, perfect both for games and lounging alike. Or if you fancy dining al fresco there is a stone barbecue overlooking the orchard in front of the cottage. Watch out for the barn owl!

A short walk from all the Triggabrowne cottages takes you to Pencarrow Head with its stunning coastal view which is the jewel of this uncrowded part of Cornwall. The unspoilt beauty of Lantic Bay awaits those who are willing to make the steep descent to the beach.

Fortescue is an ideal base from which to explore the coast and countryside, the South West Coast path takes you to the villages of Polperro or Polruan. The charm and bustle of Fowey is a short ferry ride away.

Cornwall may be steeped in Celtic history yet it also offers the uncomplicated joy of a day spent by the sea. From the picture-box charms of the villages and towns of St Ives, Polzeath and Port Isaac to the raw natural beauty of the coast, one trip to this part of the world is often just the start of many more. Remember to pack some good walking boots and you will be set for life!

    Perfect for us!

    We were looking for somewhere in Cornwall to stay to have a break and visit friends. The cottage was perfect for our family and the children loved it. The grandchildren loved going on the ferry to Fowey. We enjoyed visiting the local area. Cottage was really clean and well kept.
