The holiday cottages are furnished to a high standard and each cottage has a balcony with views over the surrounding countryside, the lake, the exercise area and the farm.

Bringing your dog on holiday

As lifelong dog owners who take their dogs on holiday, we welcome dogs. We understand what a dog and its owners need on holiday. Our holiday accommodation is designed so that your dogs enjoy their holiday as much as the rest of the family.

Facilities for dogs

Each cottage has a day kennel and a dog shower. There is a fenced exercise area to the front of Groom's Cottage and Keeper's Cottage extending to about an acre with a shallow lake. Both cottage balconies overlook these and dogs can run free whilst being exercised.

In addition each cottage has a yard so you can leave the cottage door open and not worry about your dog.

Bailiff's House has a half acre of lawned fenced garden for the sole use of its guests. This together with its large kennel and dog shower makes it suitable for 4 to 6 dogs depending on size.

Keepers and Grooms are suitable for 2 to 3 dogs depending on size.

We provide identity tags, dog towels and throws.

Peaceful rural farm location

Higher Tregawne lies at the head of the lovely Ruthern Valley and its land runs up to 600ft at its highest point from which there are magnificent views over Padstow, the Camel Estuary, Brae Hill, Rough Tor and Brown Willy on Bodmin Moor.

Here you are far from the madding crowds. On clear nights the stars shine brightly as there is virtually no light pollution.

A scrumptious welcome basket awaits you on your arrival

A warm welcome all year round

On arrival you will find a welcome basket of local fresh bread, jam, Cornish shortbread, wine and flowers. Guests seeking a relaxing short break or a few quiet days away out of season are very welcome.

Holiday cottages in Cornwall Special Offers

NEW THIS SEASON: The Farmhouse Flat is available for couples and their dogs. Contact Rachel on 07817 236602 for further information and booking.

Caroline and I think we are all in this mess together so we have NOT, as many people have, increased our prices for 2022. They are the same as 2020. It may be good business practice to do so but taking advantage of others misfortune is not our style!

We are adding a 20 extra charge to cover the dramatic hike in the cost of electricity, we hope you will understand!

In the event of lockdown affecting your booking we will refund 100% of the price of your stay. Do call Caroline or John if you have any questions or concerns.

If you like Cider ask about our Scrumpy produced at our farm near Callington, in our own press in the traditional way.  It is not for the faint hearted and needs to be enjoyed in moderation. If you feel like a hot cider toddy ask Caroline or John for their recipe. Guaranteed to warm you up after running the dogs on the beach.

Hope you are all enjoying the plethora of TV programmes extolling the virtues of the West Country

We like our cottages and our customers just as they are, so if you are looking for an alternative to Ibiza please dont bother. Beer sex drugs and rock and roll are in short supply down here and you will only be disappointed.

However if you are looking for a family holiday with the dogs and kids you will not be disappointed, although the school holidays are getting full.
