Rose Cottage has two bedrooms. Master bedroom has its own access to the deck and feature picture windows with blinds operable from the bed - so you can check the state of the weather before getting out of bed! Bedroom 2 has an en-suite wheelchair accessible wet room. Twin beds, or these can be made up as a double or one removed for extra space.
Main bathroom is adjacent to master bedroom and has a bath and power shower.
Open plan living space includes fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, oven, hob and extractor. Dining table and chairs. Lounge area with wood burning stove (logs provided), TV and ipod dock, books and comfy chairs. Looks out onto the deck through French windows.
Deck is secluded, west-facing, a sun-trap. Looks across fields and often spectacular sunsets.
We are a small farm, now non-working except for a few chickens, four sheep and our friendly dog Meg. The two cottages, Rose and Bryony, were converted in 2011 from former cowsheds by the architect Nigel Stock, and are furnished with furniture from Mark Product - our expanding high end furniture business. The design is contemporary with wooden floors and fresh colours. All amenities are new and to a high standard. The cottages are all on one level with views across fields and each has a private west-facing deck with seating and barbecue. You are free to roam over our eight acres with a stunning view from the top taking in the span of Cornwall from north to south coasts.
Flexiblity in accommodation is available for larger family or friends group as we have an adjoining door that will enable you to access both cottages.
For children we have a field with a swing and trampoline sunk into the ground, treehouse and lots of space to explore and make dens. We are also close to many of Cornwall's finest beaches on the north, south and west coasts. The towns of Falmouth, Truro and Penryn are all close by. A perfect base for a Cornwall holiday.
We are John and Kathryn Miller, we have 3 children, Rosie, Eve and Charlie.
We moved to Higher Lidgey in 2005 from east London. It had been in the same family for many years. Kathryn runs her own HR Development business and works for Falmouth University. John is a director of furniture company MARK Product. We are a typically busy family!
Kathryn Miller purchased this cottage in 2005
What we loved about this property was its seclusion whilst still being very accessible. It is a proper rural area - the real Cornwall, not a tourist honeypot. However it is so close to beaches, amazing walks and in between the towns of Truro and Falmouth.
Because the owners are on-site the properties are very well looked after and we are available if there are any problems. We also make sure the cottages are warm and cosy and there is fresh milk, flowers and wine for you when you arrive.
In spite of this convenience, most visitors won't see anything of us while you are here as the cottages have independent access and face away from our farmhouse.
We have 8 acres, away from the road, which you are free to roam (livestock permitting which occasionally use 6 of the acres).
The cottages are brand new conversions of old farm buildings, and very high specification in terms of design, comfort and furnishings.
You can rent one or both of the properties. We find some of our returning guests often do this. Grandparents or friends stay in one cottage and the family in the other. You have your own seclusion but can get together very easily as and when you want to!

We had a lovely stay at Rose Cottage, a beautiful clean cottage in a peaceful setting. Kathryn & John were lovely & although they live opposite they do not bother you but it's nice knowing they are on hand if needed.
Their dog Meg is lovely & the chickens running loose make it feel very rural without being too far out.
We were visiting my son who is at Penryn campus & this is perfect being 2 miles away so we got quality time with him. A great little find in an ideal setting for visiting beautiful Cornwall.
We will be back!
Rose Cottage is such a wonderful place to stay wish we could have stayed longer The kitchen was well equipped and as our visit was in January it was lovely and warm with a cosy log fire look forward to going back asap.
Rose cottage is a beautiful, modern cottage in the heart of the Cornish countryside. Perfect escape from city life but with all mod cons and immaculately clean. Ideally located for great places to visit and places to eat. We're looking forward to staying again soon.
We were recommend the cottage by our friends and had a great stay here.
The cottage was warm( which was very important to us! ), had fast Wi-Fi and was well equipped( everything worked).
The owners, Kathryn and John welcomed us on arrival and were very happy to advise us on anything we wanted to know about the cottage and the area. The property is in a lovely location with beautiful views( we enjoyed watching birds of prey from the bedroom window in the morning).
We made trips to Truro and Falmouth and nearby beaches which were lovely.
All in all, it was a fantastic break and we will be recommending the cottage to our friends and family.
A very warm welcome by Kathryn. The cottage was very clean and prepared for our stay. (Thank you for the Christmas tree). All areas were well maintained, equipment and facilities being very clean and as described. This cottage is a ideal location for travel throughout Cornwall. We took two dogs, there are fields where they could be walked in and a secure garden. Exceptional. I would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting a child /pet friendly holiday.
Rose Cottage is ideally situated between Truro and Falmouth, making it an excellent base for touring the rest of Cornwall.
We had a lovely week at the cottage which is clean and well equipped.
An added bonus was to have open space for our two dogs who loved running in the fields.
A lovely week and happy to recommend this property.
