LOCATION: Tregiffian Veor is a small hamlet of converted fam buildings and cottages set high above Gwenver. It’s a dramatic area in terms of beauty with some of the most spectacular coastal walks in West Cornwall on your doorstep. Sennen is a short drive away with a great surf school, beach bar and good local pub. Further afield its an easy drive to Penzance, Mousehole and St Ives which are all worth a visit.
PARKING: There's room to park in the private space behind the cottage and an extra space to the side. Be aware the lane may be rough and not be suitable for a low-slung sports car. Please drive with caution in bad weather.
WIFI: We're at the edges of BT's empire here and while there is good wi-fi, it is occasionally slow due to the distance to the exchange. Occasionally in bad weather it can drop out but we will always try to get it fixed as quickly as possible. There is good 3/4g for checking emails if this happens.
MOBILE PHONES: You get a signal on most networks but being an old granite cottage, you may have to find the right spot!
ACCESIBILITY: Giffy is suitable for children and the parking is a level walk to the front door. The internal stairs, as in all old cottages are steep so it may not be suited to those with limited mobility so do call us first to make sure it’s suitable for you.
PETS: This is a dog's paradise. You're a long way from main roads, and the footpaths and tracks head off in every direction to lovely coastal and countryside walks. One or two dogs are welcome at £25 each per stay. Please make sure they stay off the furniture and that you rub down muddy feet before they come in with the towels supplied.
SHORT BREAKS: 3 or 4 night short breaks are available with changeover either Friday or Monday. These are at a 30% discount off the weekly rate. Don’t worry if you need to book dates that don’t quite fit, just call or email and we will do our best to make it work.
