Overview

About the property

Country Cottage in Treneglos, Nr. Boscastle, Cornwall - The Ideal Retreat In The Beautiful Cornish Countryside

Next availability Week commencing Saturday 23rd September and 7th October

Boscastle & Crackington Haven both lovely places are about 8.5 miles from us and Tintagel a little bit further

Situated in the unspoilt Parish of Treneglos is Higher Scarsick a working Dairy and Sheep farm which has been farmed by the French Family since the early 1920's. Treneglos is mid way between the towns of Launceston, Bude and Camelford and is a delightful place to spend your holiday surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside yet only a short drive to the wonderful sandy beaches on the North Cornwall Coast and very convenient for the variety of tourist attractions and leisure pursuits Cornwall has to offer. The cottage has been renovated over recent years and has retained many original features, including oak beams, stone inglenooks and a bread oven. Each year we take steps to inprove the cottage so that it is cosy and inviting for all seasons. This year we have refurbished the bathroom and one of the double bedrooms now en suite.The cottage now has 2 showers and 2 toilets as well as a bath.Step outside to a large garden where you can hear the birds singing and enjoy the stunning views and if you care to take a short walk down the lane there is a small stream which is particularly beautiful in the spring and autumn.

Please ask for your holiday requirements I do try to accommodate where possible

The cottage is located avoiding the continuing road works on the A30 between Launceston and Bodmin, we are constantly hearing of horrendous traffic delays which is not a good start or end to any holiday.

About Heather French

I am a Farmers Daughter and then married into a farming family and I absolutely love living here at Higher Scarsick. Life is busy but the view from my office is constantly changing with the seasons and I can see Dartmoor on the Horizon.

10th May The trees are now out and the hedgerows are a picture with Bluebells, Pink Champions, Stitchwort, Violets and other wild flowers. I have 3 nights left in June 25th for you to enjoy this as much as I do.

Why Heather French chose North Cornwall

With the work continuing on the A30 between Launceston and Bodmin we have been told of horrendous traffic delays. People that have stayed with us recently have told us we are ideally located to explore Cornwall during their stay an are able to avoid the traffic delays on the morning of departure. We are only about 1 hour to Exeter and about 2 hours to Bristol.

What makes this cottage unique

Surrounded by the beautiful Cornish Countryside yet only a short drive to all that Cornwall offers

lovely cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Fully modernized house without loosing its character. Looked like a new kitchen and well equipped too. Also looked like a new bathroom and en-suite, all lovely. Peaceful location and beautiful views over the fields and countryside from the garden. We visited Boscastle and Tintagel, also The Eden Project and The lost gardens of Helligan and loved them all. Heather (the owner) was very friendly and also told us directions to a patchwork shop and café etc which my Mum was very pleased to find. All in all we loved our stay.

Higher Scarsick is a lovely retreat from which to explore the surrounding delights

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for somewhere to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of tourists at the end of the day then this is a lovely place to be. The cottage itself which is on a working dairy farm and attached to the owners, is very clean and tidy, spacious with three double bedrooms and well equipped with everything you need. We ate out one evening at the Wilsey Down Inn, just as you join the main road at Hallworthy, extremely handy, the food and service was very good and the welcome very friendly. It is popular. We were happy to relax, have a drink and wait for a table but in future or if you are short on time it is probably better to book. Heather the owner of the cottage is very welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. I love this area of Cornwall and it was my first time here albeit only for a long weekend. I should mention that the cottage is also dog friendly, as I have a Flatcoat who came with us. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a quiet break,being at the end of a single track road that takes you deep into the Cornish countryside you feel you become part of a working farm. The cottage is of a high standard but hasn't lost it's charm, Heather and Les are very accommodating and although busy with farm life were always available with local information on the area.

If you just need to get away from a busy life this is the perfect place to unwind, but just in case you can't resist social media etc they have super fast broadband Wow!!

The cottage had a lovely feel and offered a great amount of space. The location was perfect for us - we got to explore a great part of Cornwall. We really enjoyed our stay and Heather and Les made us feel very welcome. We would highly recommend.

Cosy, modern interior with everything you needed. Perfect rural escape.

  • 5 of 5

Heather was there to welcome us and show us about. The farm house was beautifully decorated. The bedrooms were spacious, the bathrooms sparkly clean and newly fitted. The kitchen was modern with everything you needed. The house was warm and cosy, and we all enjoyed a very very comfortable stay, a real home from home. We hope that we will be able to revisit in the future.

Location

With the continuing road works on the A30 between Launceston and Bodmin we are constantly hearing of horrendous traffic delays. Our cottage is located to avoid these delays on the morning of departure and to easily tour Cornwall and parts of Devon during your stay. We are about 1 hour to Exeter and 2 hours to Bristol.

Coast/Beach:

The North Cornwall coast is pickled with beautiful sandy beaches and coves. The nearest being Crackington Haven which is a 15min drive. For surfing we recommend Polzeath which is a 45 min drive (Approx)

Travel:

A car is essential for holidaying at Higher Scarsick. However it is 8 miles from the A30 and 3 miles from the A395 making it very accessible for all parts of the country

There is an airport at Newquay and main line Railway Station at Bodmin.
