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.

Now converted into a cosy and romantic holiday home Tiffy's, so called because it was once the workshop of the military artificer (the tiffy)or engineer, who used to maintain, modify and repair the guns, provides an excellent base from which to explore this remote corner of the Roseland Peninsula.

Tiffy's is just round the corner from The Captain's Quarter, The Lieutenant's Quarter and The Major's Quarter occupying an enviable position on St. Anthony's Head

The combination of cliffs, creeks, estuaries, headlands, woods and beaches linked by many miles of footpath, gives a fantastic variety of walking routes and a wealth of wildlife to discover.

Take a closer look at seabirds from the nearby bird hide, including fulmars as they glide across the vertical rock faces. You may also spot shags congregating on the low rock near the lighthouse and grey seals on the rocks at the tide falls.

For a quieter pace sit back and relax outside the cottage and enjoy the panoramic views of St Mawes, Falmouth and the Carrick Roads. Close by is the village of Portscatho; during the 18th and 19th Centuries it was an ideal base for the pilchard fleets, it's still a fishing port today but on a much smaller scale. Here you will find several shops, restaurants and pubs along with art galleries.

Cornwall

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!

    Really comfortable cottage

    Made enjoyable by its stunning location and views from the property. First class presentation and equipment at the property. Clearly thought had gone into all the little things that make a cottage more than adequate and really comfortable.

    Pleasant surprise

    The excellent welcome tray with a note from the caretaker made our stay enjoyable. Also to have a vase of fresh flowers was a pleasant surprise.

    Immaculate cottage

    We found this cosy cottage immaculate and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay (the compost bins were good too!) The location was wonderful and we were just feet away from the most amazing views, and there was lots to do in terms of walking and exploring. Unfortunately we didn't have a pen to sign the visitors book when we left, so we'd like to say thanks here to the caretakers and the National Trust for such a pleasant stay :) The old military buildings were really well converted and made for an interesting place to stay. The location was amazing too.
