About the property


Demelza and Rowella Cottage are converted from a 17th century barn, which was used for farming purposes until 1986. The cottages are ideal for couples and combine comfort with all the original character of the building, including open beams, wooden lintels, small paned windows and cottage doors. The cottages have a sitting room, separate kitchen, and en-suite double bedroom. They are situated in the attractive hamlet of Tregenna at the end of a private lane with fine views over the surrounding countryside. The village of Blisland is half a mile way and is one of the most picturesque in Cornwall with a free house inn, shop and post office. Blisland village is mentioned in the writings of Sir John Betjeman. The cottages are well situated for walking, touring and visits to the beaches. The nearby Camel Trail provides a quiet and scenic route for walking and cycling.

The property is situated in a very peaceful location. The cottage has been furnished very tastefully in keeping with the building type, whilst still providing everything needed during our stay. We were very comfortable there and really enjoyed our holiday. Thank you.
