    “The general standard of cleanliness in the cottage was not up to a 4 star rated holiday accommodation.”


    I have emailed Alice in Customer Relations and attached photos of what we found on our arrival at Little Tregarrick and the following morning. The owner, as it says in your Customer Reviews, is indeed a very warm, friendly, helpful lady, and we agree with the feedback Little Tregarrick is indeed spacious accommodation, and the appliances were all in good working order. But the standard of cleanliness generally has not been maintained. We found clumps of hair on bedroom carpet, many cobwebs above bed and bedside lamps needed a good dust. Crumbs and food on floor in kitchen/dining area. The bathroom sink was not clean, there was scum and hair around one of the taps as well as in basin. There was thick dust on extractor hob in kitchen, on tv stand, glass table and dvd player, etc.etc. We were disappointed to say the least! We were grateful for the butterfly cakes and milk supplied, but would rather have had a clean cottage to welcome us!! Such a shame, because the area is beautiful, so from that point of view would recommend. **Owner Response** We are very sorry for any disappointment,. We have immediately undertaken a deep clean of Little Tregarrick. and will redecorate throughout, starting on Monday 28th January

The property

Little Tregarrick is spacious and comfortable for two, tucked away at the end of a private lane just outside the ancient market town of Helston.

This lovely barn conversion is set over one floor and provides roomy accommodation for couples who wish to be in the countryside but not too far from a town with lots of amenities.

The interior is well thought out and space isn't an issue, 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 mostly laid to lawn, a barbecue is also available.

The barn is attached to the owners farmhouse and so guests also have access to the owners gardens which surround the grounds.

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.

Why not take a fishing trip from Porthleven and keep the fish you catch for an evening barbecue.

The property sits at the gateway to the Lizard Peninsula; a beautiful and unspoilt area of Cornwall that escapes the crowds.

About the location


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.
