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.

At the end of a mile-long track, Honor's House sits in a secluded valley just inland from Zennor village and just off the coastal road that is described as one of the greatest driving roads in England. Adjoining the main farmhouse, the cottage has a walled front garden and a terrace for enjoying those morning coffees. There are many beautiful walks to be had from right on your doorstep.

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!

    The isolated location of the cottage. The surrounding walks. The cottage was fabulous and the customer helpline was excellent when we had a power cut.

    Fabulous setting

    The setting is fabulous - unfortunately we only had a couple of days in Cornwall which was taken up by attending a wedding. We absolutely loved the house inside and out and it was perfect on arrival. Just wished we had ordered a meal after the long journey from Kent. Would love to come back later in the year but all booked up.

    Great location- wild.... great for walking with the dog and children. Great standard of everything; comfy chairs, great beds, attractive decent working curtains, nice sheets on the bed. Everything was very clean and tidy. Dog treats- nice touch. Nice looking crockery etc... Great to be given a supply of loo roll, hand soap etc....

    Made enjoyable...

    This was my first holiday booking with the National Trust.(We are members.) Loved the location. Very impressed with the high standard of equipments and decor. Very clean and immaculate. Fresh towels. It was our 40th wedding anniversary celebration and we were pleasantly surprised and very touched by the thoughtful gesture of the NT team for the complementary bottle of champagne. Greatly appreciated. We also appreciated the tea,coffee and biscuits and for the logs and fuel left to get us started. Very good footpaths almost at the door step.( Especially the coastal path.) The Tinner's Arms pub in Zennor served excellent food. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Lastly, I made my booking by telephone and I found the staff who dealt with my booking very helpful,knowledgeable and kind and thoughtful so a big thank you and keep up the good work. Looking forward to booking another holiday break with the National Trust. Suggestions - A power shower at Honor's House and a shower in the ground floor would have been very welcome. After a long walk one shower over bath for six people to use was a long wait. Improve the private road up to the house. There were a lot of deep pot holes that could damage the tyres of a car. A paying land line is a must in Honor's House as there are no mobile phone reception until you almost get to St.Ives ( about 4 miles.) Not practical in dire emergency. The other option is to go to the farmhouse opposite which I find will not be fair on the tenant farmers.

    Lovely views

    Lovely views. No traffic noise. Interesting to watch the farm animals out of the window. Going for walks directly from the cottage.
