Tregathenan House and Cottages
It is the perfect base for exploring the Lizard and West Cornwall. The Granary, Long Barn and Hayloft are set in a sunny enclosed courtyard and each sleep 4/5. Tregathenan House has its own peaceful garden and sleeps up to 6. There’s a playbarn and alpacas to meet.
Tregathenan is situated at the end of a private drive ‘away from it all’ yet ‘in the middle of it all’. The granite cottages have been thoughtfully converted to provide accommodation for four to six people, each to a different design retaining elements of their original charm and character. All the cottages are equipped to a very high standard and centrally heated throughout. There is ample private parking.
We have a Visitor Centre/Playroom, with lots of information available about the local area. There is a wide selection of toys, books and games, including table football, to entertain our younger visitors. There are 5 acres to explore, and our friendly ducks, chickens, alpacas and other small animals to meet.
From our position near the ancient market town of Helston, Tregathenan is the perfect base for visiting the many local beaches and gardens, and for coastal and rural walks and bike rides. The Helston railway restoration project is within walking distance. We offer a pick-up/drop-off service for SWCP walkers.
The Hayloft is a cosy two-storey cottage providing accommodation for up to four people. Downstairs you will find an open plan lounge/dining room, with a separate door opening onto your own terrace area, and a well-appointed kitchen. The modern tiled ground floor bathroom features a spacious walk-in shower. Upstairs are two delightful dormer style bedrooms, offering views across the fields to the sea around Porthleven.
The Long Barn is a detached single level cottage, popular with younger families guests who prefer accommodation without stairs. The cottage has a spacious lounge with feature fireplace, dining area and a well-equipped shaker-style kitchen with microwave, electric oven, halogen hob, washer/dryer, dishwasher and fridge. The pretty master bedroom features a four-poster bed and patio doors lead onto your own seating area. Just the place for that well earned 'sun downer' or breakfast 'alfresco'. The second bedroom contains twin beds. The family bathroom has a bath for that long soak at the end of the day, and a walk-in shower.
