Both the cottages at Higher Tregidden have their own outside spaces, but guests are welcome to explore and enjoy the surroundings.

All very good in deed, the only very slight problem was the shower it didn't always flow very well. Such a minor problem I would not hesitate to rebook when I decide for a return trip
Cob cottage was perfect for our first holiday with our puppy. I looked at lots of options as not all cottages are pet friendly. Simon the owner gave lots of ideas on where to go and what to do, and was always available for whatever we needed. Cob cottage also has its own secure garden which made life easier.
really nice relaxing place to visit!
Great first impressions which lasted. Property had everything needed to enjoy our time in Cornwall with 4 kids and 2 adults. Situated away from any tourists and close to a number of beautiful beaches we found it idyllic. Simon was very helpful and we enjoyed cooking free range eggs for breakfast (collected by the children). A very safe, quiet, tranquil place to stay and we would highly recommend it.
Lovely location , nice owner.
Cob cottage is a lovely located cute cottage. Tucked away in a quiet location near Lizard. Very friendly and helpful owner.
Really nice cottage, however with some small improvements could be absolutely excellent.
It was well equipped too. But small things like newer towels and maybe TV's in the bedrooms would make it much more comfortable. There were only two of us and the dogs but it sleeps 6. But with 1 bathroom and only two small sofas I think it might be really cramped with that number. I think if I owned the place id have two double beds and one single, or if I fancied really going to town id put an en-suite in the main bedroom. I think the cottage would actually achieve a higher price.
It was also a bit confusing with parking and gardens as there seems to be 3 cottages with communal areas. It was fine when we were there but not sure if it was full that it would be private enough for me. I don't remember seeing that explained in the advert.
However, all that said Cob cottage is a lovely quaint cottage, and I would recommend it without hesitation. I think it might suit families with small children more so than grown ups maybe. And importantly the owner was a really nice guy.
I hope Cornwall cottages and the owner see this as constructive criticism rather than just criticism..
We thank you for providing your comments and thought it would be helpful to provide a response. As you know we are situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in a location which provides complete peace and tranquility. We have two holiday cottages (not three) each of which has its own area of garden with abundant flowers and trees as well as tables and chairs.The cottages are converted from ancient farm buildings and designed so that they have complete privacy with neither overlooked by the other. We have a designated parking area shared by both cottages and additional parking is available as needed and to date this has not been an issue for any guests. We pride ourselves on the quality of our linen and towels which are all sourced from John Lewis. Our record for cleanliness, condition, comfort and value for money is very good. We are sorry that the use of space did not meet with your taste but Cob Cottage has charmed many visitors including many families of five and six - recent comments have included - 'charming', 'idyllic', 'superbly clean and well laid out', 'delightful' etc and we have a very full and complimentary visitor book and an impressive list of returning guests. Your idea about a TV in each room is appreciated but really people come here for its beauty and peace - although I wonder if you and your daughter actually used the upper barn play room area that has a huge monitor and sound system and DVD set up Although we were very surprised at your review as we had parted so amicably and you had said you were likely to return we take all constructive criticism positively You and yours would, of course, be most welcome any time All best
we loved our stay at Cob Cottage; enough space for children, lovely dogs and donkeys; beautiful gardens, quietness, just 20 min drive to Helston, lovely beaches 10 min drive
A quick weekend break to recharge the batteries and enjoy the gorgeous Lizard again!
We love Higher Tregidden, tucked away in a beautiful hamlet its perfect for getting away from it all and chilling out on the Lizard. A fab barn and great host Simon. A perfect stay, 10/10. We will definitely be going back
There is a good pub - the Prince of Wales at Newtown, just over a mile away or a 20 minute walk, plus more pubs in nearby St Keverne, Coverack and at stunning Cadgwith Cove. There are large supermarkets in Helston and good shopping further afield in Falmouth and Truro.
Coverack has a traditional working harbour, a general store, Internet Cafe, friendly pub and several eating establishments. There are many other beautiful villages to discover around the Lizard such as St Keverne, Porthallow, Manaccan, Helford and Gweek, all with excellent pubs. There is a brewery at Coverack for beer lovers! There are a number of good eating establishments dotted around the peninsula. "South" at Manaccan is a good find, plus "New Yard" at Trelowarren, "Kota" and "Amelie's" at Porthleven, not to mention the inevitable Cornish pasties - Leggy's in Ruan Minor or the famous Ann's Pasties at Lizard.
The Lizard is an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' and has some spectacular coastal walks. It is England's most southerly point and the highlights include early Spring flowers, the Lizard lighthouse, swimming and surfing from sandy beaches, delightful fishing coves, sailing on the Helford river, heather covered moors in Autumn, open gardens and National Trust areas, pretty harbour lights at Christmas, friendly pubs and good, fresh, local food! There are loads of places to visit and highlights include Lizard Point, walks along the coastal path, a visit to Trelowarren Estate, the fascinating Goonhilly Earth Station, Flambards is great for the kids and you can step into Cornwall's mining heritage at the Poldark Mine.There are so many activities to choose from locally. You can take a boat trip across the beautiful Helford River and explore the gardens at Trebah. There are sea fishing trips from Porthleven. There is great diving on the Manacles and coasteering is available for the really adventurous. The Lizard is home to the Cornish Chough if you like a spot of bird-watching. The coastline has many pretty coves and beaches to discover, but you can find great surf at Porthleven or Loe Bar.
