The Experience

You’ll feel tucked away and peaceful here down a winding country lane, but you’re just off the A30.

Owners Simon and Penny live next door with their friendly terrier and can give you local tips for good away walks, beaches and places to eat. They leave you a cream tea and a bottle of wine along with plenty of wood for the wood-burner. The kitchen has space for sociable cooking and chatting, and the sitting room has French doors to your own garden – spill out here on sunny days for barbecues.

There are endless good walks or you can head to Sennen and Gwynver in about ten minutes; you’ll find surfboards and bodyboards in the shed which you’re welcome to borrow. You’re 15 minutes from Mousehole and The Minack Theatre is about 20 minutes.

Reviews

Dairy Cottage is our 'go to' for relaxation, comfort, beach walks and a feeling that all is right with the world. Thanks for a great week and we'll see you all next year. Chris, Paul and Merlot the dog

Christine, Dawlish

The Old Dairy is a really beautiful hidden spot. Accessed along a small winding country lane, the property is surrounded by acres of beautiful gardens and woodland. Completely sheltered and tucked away, this would be the perfect place to sit outside in the garden in the evening after a long day on the beach or walking through the countryside.

Local points of interest from Penny Rumble

  • Dairy Cottage is a Grade II listed building which was once an 18th century milking parlour. It has been tastefully converted by Simon and Penny who live next door. If you enjoy art then visit Penny's studio next to their home.
  • Dairy Cottage is set in the tiny hamlet of Tregonebris which belongs to the rural parish of Sancreed. It has a beautifully maintained garden of over an acre with lovely views. An ideal place to exercise your dog if you don't feel like going to the beach.
  • The beaches of both the north and south coasts are only a few minutes drive away.
  • The cottage has many walks directly from the front door with ancient stone circles and an Iron Age village very close by.
  • The local farm shop is the nearest place for fresh vegetables and home reared meat. It is a short drive from the cottage and a coffee is always available in the cafe there.
  • Peace and tranquillity is on offer here. Throw open the French windows and watch the sun set in the west. Get away from everything,light the barbeque or the woodburner depending on the season.

Introducing
