Kelvin grew up nearby and was determined that we would have our base here in Cornwall. It started with the upstairs of the granary which we later converted to create Myn Tea.
Kelvin Collins purchased this cottage in 1999
We visited many places before spending a whole afternoon with the owners of the granary that was later to become Myn Tea. When what is now New Forge came on the market we utterly stretched ourselves to buy it.
Although it was extremely basic back then, we knew immediately that this is where we wanted to live. Work takes Amanda around the country, but Tregiffian has always been home. Just being here lightens the load of everyday life and helps you see things with a new perspective.
It says a lot that the people we bought from moved away for ten years, but have now moved back here and live just across the courtyard.
We are right at the edge of Britain and it can be utterly calm, yet at other times wild in the extreme. The very contrasts in the weather, no matter what it throws at you, are truly good for the soul and leave you feeling more alive.
Whether you stay at New Forge or Myn Tea next door or The Old Dairy across the courtyard, you'll have wonderfully comfortable accommodation, far reaching views, good gardens and you could spend a relaxing holiday here without leaving the property. But when you venture out you have the best of Cornwall with its cliffs and beaches right on your doorstep.
