                                                                                              4 of 5
                                                                                              We've been staying at Highdown & Trebarwith for ten years, & we cannot contemplate staying anywhere else in Cornwall. Trebarwith calls us back year on year. Our children count down the weeks to the next holiday there, & so do we! Gull Rock sitting majestically in the ocean; the waves crashing in & surfing at sunset; the rock pools beckoning; tea, hot chocolates, & cheesey chips watching the tide come in from the rocks; Moo-Maid ice creams from the Crazy Mermaid; a pint of Tribute in the Port William whilst watching a sunset. Nothing in the world can beat it. Highdown Cottage is an excellent place to stay to enjoy the Strand. Sitting on the top in Trebarwith village, it is perfectly located, with it being only a 20 minute to the beach walk down a footpath. We did this every day, & even the children never complained either going down or up. The views from the cottage are incredible: the Ocean, Backways Cove, Pentire point, the farmer's fields & his friendly cows in the adjoining field. You get up, look out of the large window in the living room, & feel invigorated every day. The cottage is always clean, with the occasional dog hair on the floor. The amenities in the cottage are a bit on the basic side, however, but are more than adequate for a family's needs. The sofa can be uncomfortable, & the curtains in both bedrooms are so thin that we have taken to bringing our own black out material. But these are minor quibbles with what we consider to be an idyllic stay. Wifi was a new addition this year, so the children were very happy! All in all, I would thoroughly recommend staying at Highdown Cottage. But I don't want to shout about it, in case it gets overbooked! It's our holiday secret!...

I enquired and was very pleased that Kristine answered any questions I had right away. We had a long journey to get there and it was much appreciated that Kristine gave us the option to leave later on the day we went home. The area was very picturesque with great local attractions, and after a long day of exploring there was nothing better than relaxing in the comfy beds! Would definitely visit again! Many thanks, Charlotte and family :)

Very thoughtfully designed / restored and furnished; fitted out with all the bits and pieces you could possibly need. Fabulous views, lots of sheep (and the occasional rabbit in the garden). And an excellent pub / restaurant within walking distance. Local beach is also great and well equipped with everything from artisanal ice cream to surfing paraphernalia: you just have to get it right with the tides. Lots to see / do / eat in nearby towns and villages as well.
