Perfectly placed for exploring the Far West of Cornwall, Tregathenan Country Cottages are situated at the end of a bridle path about three miles north of the historic Helston. Three tastefully converted barns are arranged around a sunny secluded courtyard adjacent to the owner’s 17th century farmhouse. All three cottages are fully equipped with all the comforts of home. Each has a cooker, fridge, microwave, TV and video, CD/radio/cassette player, washer/dryer and all are centrally heated for year round comfort. Each cottage has been individually decorated and reflects a different aspect of Cornish life and heritage. The Hayloft features the coastal and shipping aspects of Cornwall, the Granary gives an insight into the mining activities in the country and the Long Barn looks at rural life around the turn of the century. The Granary sleeps up to five in a double and a family bedroom and has the added luxury of a dishwasher. The Long Barn sleeps four with a four-poster bed in the master bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom. The Hayloft also accommodates up to four in two bedrooms and has a spa bath as a little extra treat. Prices include bed linen and all gas and electricity and towels can be provided for a small additional charge. Guests invariably comment on how quiet, peaceful and away from it all it is at Tregathenan. That said the cottages are about twenty minutes drive from all the major visitor attractions in this part of Cornwall. The National Maritime Museum at Falmouth, The Tate Modern and Barbara Hepworth Galleries at St Ives, The Lizard Peninsula, and St Michael’s Mount are just a few of them. The best of Cornwall’s beaches between Padstow and The Helford Estuary are a short drive away. Try Hayle, Sennen or Praa for the classic miles of golden sand, or a quieter more secluded cove like Poldhu or Kynance. There are an incredible number of glorious gardens within easy reach of Tregathenan. Trebah, Glendurgan, Trellissick and Trengwainton too mention but a few. The Trevarno Estate and Gardens featuring The National Museum of Gardening are a gentle 20 minutes stroll from the door of your cottage.
