About Penny Rumble
Simon and I came to Cornwall in 2008 and bought Tregonebris Old Farm as a series of cattle sheds and an old dairy. We devoted two and a half years to the careful renovation of the buildings and the Old Dairy is now a successful and attractive holiday home. We wanted to give holiday makers a feeling of space and freedom so the cottage has large rooms and there is a huge field in front. I am also a full time artist and my studio is in the converted piggery. Everyone is welcome to browse in the studio/gallery. Simon and I live next door to Dairy Cottage and we love this tiny hamlet in West Penwith which is so quiet and rural and yet so close to the sea.
Penny Rumble purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Penny Rumble chose Sancreed
Both Dairy Cottage and our own farm building are listed. They were built in the 17th century of huge blocks of granite and are typical of the Cornish vernacular style. The buildings are full of atmosphere and early features. We love living here and feel totally a part of Cornwall's ancient heritage.
What makes this Cottage unique
Dairy Cottage has gorgeous views across the fields. There is a wild wood with a dashing stream across the lane and one can step outside and walk to ancient sites such as a Stone Circle and an Iron Age village. The buildings are nestled in a valley and protected from the full force of the winds. We are four miles from the south, west and north coast so one could say - the area is almost an island! It is a perfect base for exploring this far western edge of Cornwall.

A lovely place to stay
Despite Storm Gareth we had a marvellous holiday at the lovely Dairy Cottage. The house is warm and comfortable; a perfect place for a cosy retreat from the world. Thanks to Penny and Simon for being marvellous hosts. Would highly recommend!
Considering that it rained every single day I am delighted you enjoyed yourselves. At least there's plenty of space indoors to do your own thing.
Fantastic base from which to explore this part of Cornwall.
A very well equipped cottage in quiet and beautiful surroundings. We were made to feel very welcome and are already planning our return visit. Would thoroughly recommend it to anyone wishing to visit the many interesting places to see that are within easy reach.
Fantastic cottage so much space.
We had such a lovely time in Sancreed we really would have liked to stay longer. The cottage was fantastic, so much space & equipped with everything you could possibly need. Penny & Simon were great hosts & my daughter loved the experience of meeting a real artist & getting some inspiration & advice.
There's so much to see & do locally and the the beaches are stunning. Will definitely be returning but for two weeks next time!
Thank you very much. If your stay with us has encouraged you to return for a fortnight then the beauty of West Cornwall has worked its magic. There really is so much to do and see down here. See you all again some time.

Lovely quiet cottage
Lovely, spacious, quiet cottage with beautiful large garden & great location.
We had a fabulous Christmas in this warm, cosy cottage, despite the awful weather. Penny was a delightful host, who had thought of everything - the cottage was very well equipped. It was also surprisingly spacious and the bed in one of the rooms was huge and extremely comfortable. Our dog was also delighted with the huge garden where she had plenty of room for exercise. We will definitely be back.
The huge bed is a brand new addition to the cottage so I am delighted it was a success.
An excellent comfortable base from which to explore the Penwith Peninsula.
The owners Penny and Simon live next door and made us feel most welcome. The cottage was perfect and had everything you would need. The large garden is ideal for dogs and children. We visited in November but because of the heating system and first class insulation we never felt chilly. The location is great. Really peaceful and quiet yet within a few hundred yards of the A30 Lands End road so its easy to get to any of places you might wish to visit. There's some excellent walking in the locality. We enjoyed a great morning walk to the ancient settlement at Carn Euny for example. We also visited Sennen Cove, Mousehole, Chun Castle and Quoit, St. Ives and Cape Cornwall. We've stayed in a number of places as we love it down here but this was the best. Highly recommended.
Even Cornwall can be chilly in the winter so a plentiful supply of logs for the woodburner and a good heating system are both essential for a cosy winter break.
Dairy Cottage is situated in the tiny hamlet of Tregonebris, an ancient settlement of only a few houses. It is part of the parish of Sancreed and lies in the heart of protected countryside designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty. Across the road are unspoilt bluebell woods where the bubbling stream forms the head of the Lamorna Valley. The cottage is also very close to one of Cornwall's finest stone circles:-Boscawen-un ,and the Iron Age village of Carn Euny is just a short walk uphill as it sits above the sheltered hamlet of Tregonebris.
Dairy Cottage is in the far west of Cornwall and is near every available coast. The magnificent surf beaches of Sennen on the north coast and the sheltered coves of Porthcurno and Mousehole on the south coast are within a few miles. The vibrant fishing port of Newlyn and the market towns of St Buryan, St Just and Penzance are within easy reach. Picturesque St Ives, famous for its community of artists is only a short drive away.
