The property

Spacious and comfortable for two, Little Tregarrick is tucked away at the end of a private lane just outside the ancient market town of Helston. The immediate surroundings are rural and green and yet the there is a pub/restaurant less than a mile away that can be reached by footpath across the fields on a summers evening.

The wide sandy beach at Loe Bar, just over two miles away can also be reached by foot through the beautiful National Trust land of the Penrose Estate. Helston is great for morning coffee and has a few pubs and shops but for waterside eateries we suggest that you head to nearby Porthleven, a pretty fishing port on the south coast. There are several good options here including the superb fusion restaurant Kota. Porthleven is also home to several galleries and a weekly harbour market. The town sits at the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula; a beautiful and unspoilt area of Cornwall that escapes the crowds. Dotted with delightful fishing villages, pretty coves, sandy beaches and amazing walking we recommend Kynance Cove, Mullion, Coverack or Cadgwith for postcard prettiness.Forming the northern boundary to the Lizard Peninsula is the Helford River offering a Swallows and Amazons landscape of wooded valleys and creeks with boat trips and hire available from the twin villages of Helford and Helford Passage.

Situated on a working farm guests may experience the sounds and smells of the countryside at Little Tregarrick. Attached to owner's farmhouse, the barn enjoys near complete privacy. Once inside there is a lovely large central kitchen dining area which is flanked by the sitting room on one side and the bedroom on the other. A spacious shower room completes the accommodation. Outside is a private garden area with barbecue but guests also have access to the owners gardens which surround the farmhouse.

About the location

HELSTON

Porthleven 3 miles; Falmouth 12 miles; Penzance 14 miles.

Helston lies at the western gateway to the Lizard Peninsula, a large area of downland fringed by a beautiful and spectacular coastline. Helston is a pleasant busy market town famous for its Flora Day Festival and the many stories and legends about the "Furry Dance" are told in the fascinating Helston Folk Museum. Nearby is the Poldark Mine, one of the best underground experiences in the south west and which tells of the widespread mining heritage of this area. Nestled in a tranquil setting is the National Seal Sanctuary on the Helford River, where there is plenty of entertainment watching seals play and feed. If it is thrill rides that excites you, then Flambards theme park will keep you amused all day and also has excellent living history experiences. Further afield is the harbour town of Falmouth to the east and Land's End to the west. Helston is a wonderful holiday destination offering plenty of attractions for the whole family.

Note: Babies welcome, regretfully no children over the age of two years.
