Cottages in Laddenvean , Lizard, Cornwall, England - Tregoning Manor, Property Beautifully Set In 10 Acres Within A Few Minutes Walk Of Local Shops
Tregoning Manor is an early 18th Century Cornish farmhouse built on the site of an old Cistercian Monastery, some ruins of which are still visible today. The property is beautifully set in 10 acres within a few minutes walk of local shops. There is a stream running through the grounds with a small waterfall, millpond and an old clapper bridge leading on down to the woodland area where you are welcome to wander. We live in the main house so are usually on hand to help if you have any problems. There is an enclosed “Mowhay” (small garden) across the footpath for the use of guests in both cottages. A shed there houses various outdoor games for you to use if feeling energetic. Private off road parking for up to three cars is available. Both properties are available all year (including Christmas and the New Year), also for short breaks out of season.
PRIORY COTTAGE: Sleeps 4 or 3 plus cot.
Once a barn and now converted into a charming upside down cottage with lots of woodwork, beams and deep window-sills. The open plan living room/kitchen is reached by stone steps leading up to a stable door. A pale pine kitchen with pretty tiles is equipped with electric cooker, fridge (small freezer compartment), a washer/dryer, microwave and ample crockery etc. The sitting/dining area has lovely views out over our garden and down the wooded valley that leads to the sea. There are comfortable furnishings and a wood-burning stove, which together with a T.V./DVD, ipod dock and CD/radio make it perfect for those evenings when you want to stay at home and unwind with a bottle of wine or simply to collapse in comfort after an energetic walk. Downstairs there is a double bedroom (4’6” bed with king sized duvet – David always hogs the lot with anything smaller), a twin bedded room with hand-built old pine cabin beds and a smart bathroom with a shower above the bath, under floor heating, bright Agatha Ruiz tiles and ample space for your own bits and pieces. All the downstairs rooms overlook the enclosed private patio where there are a table and chairs and Firepit/BBQ for those warm summer evenings – fingers crossed!! There are electric panelled radiators throughout the cottage, which along with the stove make this a cosy winter retreat as well as a wonderful place to while away a week or two during the warmer months. There are books, board games, toys and a selection of videos. A cot and highchair are available if required and there is also a stair gate. All electricity/heating is included in the price as are linen and towels although we do ask that you bring your own beach towels.
MOLE'S COTTAGE: Sleeps 2.
Mole’s Cottage, standing across the courtyard from our house, is a single storey converted barn where once the daffodils were sorted. The interior is full of character with mellow stone walls, Cornish slate and exposed roof trusses. On opening the door you enter the living/kitchen area where bright painted walls contrast with the stonework. There is a comfortable sofa and hand painted table and chairs along with a wood-burning stove. You will also find a T.V./DVD player, iPod dock, CD/radio and a good supply of books, DVDs and board games. The kitchen, with its hand made, painted units and bright tiles, is compact but fully equipped with an electric cooker, ceramic hob, fridge (small freezer compartment for the scrummy organic ice cream made locally), microwave and washing machine. The bedroom is warm and inviting (as long as you like colour) with a 4’6” bed and a king size duvet so there is no arguing about who has a cold back! The shower room (sorry, more colour) has a power shower, loo and vanity unit so there is plenty of space for the various lotions and potions that I know David and I seem to cart everywhere. Outside the enclosed courtyard, with its water feature, tree ferns and sculptures, is a riot of colourful flower filled pots during the season, then a myriad of fairy lights in December. This is shared with us although we usually tend to sit the other side of the house so as to leave you in peace. A table, chairs and chimenea/BBQ are outside Mole’s in the hope that we will have plenty of balmy summer evenings for you to enjoy. This is a perfect, romantic hideaway for two and makes a great base for walking and exploring the area. Electricity is included as are the linen and towels, although we ask you to bring your own beach towels please.

From the Owner
“Prior to moving here, we used to holiday on the Lizard Peninsula every year and particularly loved this area on the East Coast due to the stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and great walks.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
Laddenvean is just outside one of the main villages on the Lizard Peninsula and historically the most important within the area known as The Meneage, derived from the Cornish meaning Monk’s Land or monastic. This area covers more than 10,000 acres on the east side of the peninsula.
The village is a friendly community with the village stores, a butcher, Post Office, newsagent, two pubs and an organic restaurant. Unusually for Cornwall it is built around a central square overlooked by the local church.
The church dates from the 15th century and is large for a village church with a distinctive octagonal spire. This was apparently added as daymarker to warn sailors of the treacherous Manacles Reef, a square mile of barely submerged rocks just off shore. Over the centuries these have claimed hundreds of ships and many lives. There are 400 victims buried in this churchyard and memorials to ships such as The Primrose, The Bay of Panama and The SS Mohegan.
The area is well known for its outstanding beauty and varied scenery from the magnificent coastline, sandy beaches and famous coves, to Goonhilly Downs and the wooded valleys and creeks of the Helford river.
St.Ives, Penzance, Falmouth and the Cathedral City of Truro are all within easy reach; as are St. Michael's Mount and many other National Trust houses and beautiful gardens (Trebah, Glendurgan,Trelissick etc.).
Cornwall has recently been designated a European Cultural route of Parks, Gardens and Landscape and the gardens down here have some of the most unique plant collections in the world.
The Tate Gallery at St. Ives, Lands End, the open air Minack Theatre perched on the cliffs at Porthcurno, the Eden Project and the recently opened National Maritime Museum all make an enjoyable day out. There are several leisure parks for family outings:- Flambards, The Seal Sanctuary, Poldark Mine and Paradise Park to name but a few.
