Bryony Cottage has one bedroom with direct 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!
Bathroom is adjacent to the 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!

Visiting daughter at uni for the week. Cottage exactly as advertised. It was perfect, very light, plenty of room for the two of us and our puppy. Walks straight from cottage. Although close to Penryn and Falmouth it is situated down country road surrounded by beautiful fields. We were entertained daily by seeing the sheep outside the bedroom, dog especially liked watching from safety of fenced little garden. Chickens provided fresh eggs if wanted. Saw the stars by night. So peaceful. We loved lighting the log burner from wood pile and playing the provided games. We visited Mousehole, Port Isaac, St Ives, The Lizard, lots of beautiful beaches nearby, National Trust Gardens. Always nice to come back to the warm cottage. Kitchen well equipped. The owners are delightful, friendly and helpful. Nearby if needed. Would recommend to friends and we intend to stay again.
QUIET PEACEFUL LOCATION , ENJOYED THE MODERN KITCHEN , THE PATIO WAS NICE TO SIT IN DURING THE AFTERNOON SUN, FOR US PERSONALLY THE LOCAL PUBS WERE TO FAR TO WALK TO ENJOY AN EVENING MEAL. THE LOCATION WAS EASY AND ACCESSIBLE FOR FALMOUTH, WE ALSO VISITED OTHER BEACHES AND PUBS WHICH WERE ON YOUR LOCAL INFORMATION CARDS.
My partner and I stayed with our 2 dogs and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Lots of fields and local walks and wildlife. Good facilities in the cottage. I would recommend Bryony Cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful place to stay.
Had wonderful time at Bryony Cottage and a much appreciated bottle of wine on arrival! Photos of cottage didn't disappoint. Great position for visiting many areas. The Pandora Inn nearby and lots of restaurants/pubs in Falmouth serving good food. Hosts very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay - would definitely recommend.
We, parents and our one-year old daughter, had a great time in this well-equipped, modern cottage. Everything was working well and fitted our needs. The animals (dog "Meg", some sheep, chicken and lots of rabbits) were great to watch for our kid and Meg and one "crazy" chicken (sometimes trying to enter the cottage through the front door, at times successfully...) were even wiiling to be petted. The cottage is located in the coutryside, but Penryn and Falmouth are sufficiently close to do shopping or dining. As a small point, the kittchen outfit could be completed a bit, e.g. by a second frying pan and a large cooking pot. The bedroom is a little bright in the morning, so our daughter became active somewhat early at times. The owners, living across the driveway, were very nice and helpful, but we had all the privacy we could hope for.
The cottage was comfortable and well equipped and felt quite spacious. It was very nice to come home to after a busy day exploring, to find the sun shining on the sheltered patio from which we had a nice view of fields and rabbits. Although at first the winding lane to the property felt very long we quickly realised that in fact we were not far from lots of nice beaches and beautiful gardens. We particularly liked Trebah and Tressilick Gardens, also Grebe Beach and Church Cove. (Because we had a dog we couldn't go on most of the best, sandy beaches).
It was good to have the friendly, helpful owners close by and to find essentials such as tea, coffee, milk and especially a bottle of wine to welcome us on arrival.
The facilities for the dog were excellent - everything on one level, an enclosed garden and fields for him to exercise in.
I would certainly recommend this property to anyone who likes to be in a quiet location. The one-bedroom cottage was fine for us as a fairly elderly couple but you could also have a real family holiday here by renting the adjoining cottage as well.
