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 , relaxing few days

  • 4 of 5

We booked the Cottage as a last minute get away and it was perfect. beautiful location and a good base for most of Cornwall's attractions. the cottage was well presented and had everything we needed - we loved the log burner. 4 sheep out of the bedroom window, lot's of cows and chickens walking round gave it a real cosy farmy feel.

The Cottage is set up a series of tight windy lanes but there is an easier and wider lane to get to it once your settled in and get your bearings. plenty of local shops etc all within a 5/10 minute drive.

if your looking for a quiet base then this is a great little cottage and a reasonable price.

Wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

We have had two fantastic weeks in the cottages. First we were in Rose Cottage an than we were in Bryony Cottage. The cottages are equipped with everything. We have used the stove in the evening. It was fantastic. In the morning we see the sheeps from our bedroom and in the evening the rabbits. Twice we have seen a fox in the evening. We have also seen a cow calving.We have seen a lot about Cornwall, but not all, so we have to come back. Kathryn was a good landlady. We have felt comfortable.

Our Kind of Cornwall Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the blend of character with contemporary that our cottage overlooking the fields provided. Everything we needed was supplied along with useful information thoughtfully researched by the owners, who were very welcoming and on hand if needed. Doors wide open on sunny days to the log fire cosily lit on rainy evenings, we enjoyed the garden, the sunsets and the stars.

There was so much for us to explore in Falmouth and surrounding areas and the location of the cottage was ideal for visiting coves and sandy beaches.

We have already planned to return!

The perfect Cornish holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

Bryony Cottage is situated in a peaceful and beautiful location. It had all the facilities and home comforts we needed to enjoy a wonderful holiday. Falmouth, Penryn and Truro are all a short drive away, and Kathryn and John provided helpful information sheets on the surrounding area including beaches, local walks, and restaurants etc. We had a fantastic week, would throughly recommend this holiday cottage and we definitely plan to go back!

Anoth Wonderful Cornish holiday

  • 5 of 5

Another wonderful stay at Rose cottage at higher Lidgey - our second year and not disappointed. Kathryn the owner is a most charming host at this charming and quiet country location. We have now stayed in Bryony and Rose cottages and both are of high spec with excellent features throughout. In kitchen, bathroom bedroom quality linen and furniture from the owners furniture design business. The surrounding area is quiet and rural with opportunities to walk and or read overlooking the country. It is in easy reach by car to either coast or local reservoir. Many thanks to Kathryn and family we look forward to returning in 2018.

North coast beaches (20-25 minutes) are reliable surfing beaches, linked by stunning stretches of coastpath. To the west, the Lizard offers renowned beaches such as at Gunwalloe (30 mins) and Poldhu.

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.
