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. 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 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!
