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 Saint Gluvias

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!

Perfect holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a return visit for us, and we would love to keep coming back! The cottage is situated in a peaceful and beautiful location, overlooking rolling fields. This year we even had three sheep to say good morning to every day! It is just a few minutes drive to Penryn and Falmouth so everything is within easy reach. The cottage itself was clean and welcoming and had everything we needed for our stay. Would thoroughly recommend if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxed getaway but don’t want to be too far away from the beaches, shops etc. A wonderful experience.

Great holiday home in a central location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice, clean and spacious cottage with a fully equipped kitchen a terrace and a small garden. The cottage is located 10 minutes from Falmouth but in a quiet but central location, from where you could easily and quickly get to all regions of Cornwall. Very nice and we will definitely book again.

A relaxing week in Cornwall!

  • 5 of 5

A clean, tidy, well equipped cottage in an idyllic quiet location. We enjoyed a very relaxing week in Bryony cottage, enjoying lots of walks on beaches and coast paths and of course delicious pub meals. When back at the cottage we could switch off and relax in peace and quiet with a lovely view. Will definitely return !

Quiet Escape in Rural Countryside

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a glorious holiday at Bryony Cottage. It truly lived up to all our expectations and more. Set in beautiful, peaceful countryside but very accessible to all the places we wished to visit.

Kathryn and John were extremely welcoming and helpful.

The perfect cottage for the perfect Cornish holiday!

Bryony Cottage, Saint Gluvias, Penryn, Cornwall

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cottage. A great location set in the countryside but easy to get to other places. Lovely walks straight from the door and a secure garden for our dog. Nice and modern and feeling spacious with patio doors opening straight onto the private decking area. One of the nicest holiday cottages we have stayed at and would love to return.

Wow what a find ......

  • 5 of 5

Bryony cottage is absolutely perfect. We arrived to a lovely welcome and a much needed bottle of wine and welcome pack. The drive up to Higher Lidgley farm was incredibly pretty and relaxing and when we turned into the driveway we were greeted by the resident chickens and sheep. Kathryn and John have everything covered, without being at all intrusive. the cottage is fabulously contemporary and at the same time very homely. So quiet, all we heard was the clock .... perfect. There was an information pack with a personal guide to walks, shops, takeaways and restaurants, the local beaches and activities. All extremely well received, even had discount coupon for The Eden Project. The first few days were glorious and the private decking was a little sun trap, perfect to use the BBQ ( being watched over by the farmers cows) ...nothing has been overlooked ... steaming hot water, dishwasher, washer dryer, fridge freezer and a log burner with unlimited amount of logs. I can honestly say, after years of 5* All Inclusive holidays, this little gem in Cornwall has stolen our hearts.

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.
