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.

At the heart of the old farmstead is a handsome slate-hung farmhouse that has been converted into three holiday cottages: the main house has been divided into two separate wings Tippetts and The Farm House whilst cosy Dairy Cottage adjoins one side.

The old house's traditional features, such as slate floors, exposed beams and fireplaces, have been retained, so each of the cottages has something of the look and the Cornish farmhouse about it.

Also in the vicinity are Pitt and Fortescue. 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 in the garden. 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.

Tippett's 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

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!

    Well equipped and comfortable cottage

    We were delighted with the cottage which was better than our expectations, very well equipped and comfortable. We loved the peaceful surroundings and visited most places in the area including the Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project and the beautiful Lanhydrock House to name but a few. We also visited the seaside towns not too far from the cottage.

    Lovely clean cottage

    The quality of the cottage was wonderful, including the cleanliness. The proximity to the coastal path was fantastic, we walked every day. We visited 2 NT properties and both were a wonderful day out. The information pack was the best we've ever encountered, including abroad. The laminated maps and the ordnance map in particular were very useful.

    Well equipped cottage

    The setting was lovely and peaceful and the cottage was very well equipped, comfy beds, good sized rooms and very homely - the kind of place you'd like to live yourself.

    Very relaxing week

    We really loved walks along the stunning coastal footpath, and generally around Polperro/Fowey. Fantasic pubs and places to eat. Tippets cottage was great with plenty of garden space to enjoy the odd game of cricket. Although not a very techy person, the WiFi was a welcome suprise. The welcome hamper was a nice touch, especially after a relativly long drive. Although we did not meet any NT personel the level of information provided answered all our questions, and we felt clear on how we could use and enjoy the property. Very relaxing week. Close to our cottage was Lantic Bay which is a stunning Cornish beach. I was really suprised by the level of litter on the beach. I don't blame NT for this , but it really detracted from an otherwise pristine enviroment between Polruan and Polperro. I did remove some of the bottles, but when I returned on my last day armed with proper bin bags, a wedding was in full flow on the beach. I didn't want to ruin someones big day being a busy body! But when/if I return I'll certainly come prepared!
