About the property

E4001

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.

About Kathryn Miller

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

Why Kathryn Miller chose Cornwall

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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!

Peaceful Rose Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful cottage in stunning location

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.

Great stay in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely cottage in tranquil surroundings

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Further Details:

Just walking up our lane Wood Hill is particularly lovely - it's a double avenue of mature beech trees and differs with every season as daffodils, primroses and bluebells come and go and the leaves change their colour. Also from Higher Lidgey the walk to the old gunpowder mills at Kennal Vale is a popular choice - this deep wooded valley of the ruins of a long gone industry is very evocative with its many aqueducts and rusting water wheels. We are spoilt for choice for other walks, but walks around Flushing and Mylor, Trellissick, Mawnan Church, Porthtowan, Prussia Cove and Godrevy are among our favourites and in easy reach.Cycling - is a network of safe cycle paths following the old mineral tramways. Bike hire is available nearby at Bissoe.

Watersports - surfing, sailing, kayaking, waterskiing, kite-surfing, sea fishing are all available close by.

Pubs and restaurants - this part of Cornwall is well served for both pubs and restaurants. Our own local pub, the Stag Hunt in Ponsanooth, has a music night on a Thursday which is friendly and fun and even better, in walking distance! If you turn up without an instrument you will be in a minority but made to feel very welcome. Better known are the Pandora Inn at Mylor, The Ferryboat on the Helford River, The Golden Lion in Stithians, and in Falmouth the Chain Locker. Restaurants in Falmouth include Rick Stein's, Hunkydory, the Cove, Indaba Fish, and a recent discovery, the amazing Wheelhouse which specialises in local seafood.

Gardens - also very famous in this part of the world, the legacy of the Victorian plant collectors, and of the mildest climate in the UK. The National Trust's Trellisick, Glendurgan and Godolphin House are all nearby. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a day trip (45 minutes). Also there are charming and less well known gardens like Trebah, Enys and Pottager.
