Looking for family or dog friendly self catering accommodation in Cornwall? Then Higher Trewithen might just be the perfect place for you!


Originally a Cornish Farmstead, dating back 400 years, Higher Trewithen’s outbuildings were converted into cottages and apartments in 1972.

With seven properties, sleeping between 2 to 8 people, we’re sure you will find your perfect holiday rental at Higher Trewithen. And guess what? Most of our properties are dog friendly so your four legged friend can join in with the family fun too!

All our cottages and apartments benefit from free WiFi. Bed linens, heating and electric are included in the price of your stay and your beds are made up ready for your arrival.

Stays of 7 nights or more receive a Welcome Pack of local milk, bread and butter and a starter supply of tea, coffee and sugar. Bed linens and towels are included in the price of your accommodation. We have a separate laundry room on site. Books, board games and sun loungers are also available free of charge.

Higher Trewithen is close to the centre of the Cornish peninsular, consequently many of Cornwall’s tourist attractions are within easy driving distance. Both the North and South coast are less than 10 miles away. Falmouth, on the South coast, is 6 miles and the County town of Truro, with its stunning Cathedral and fantastic shops, is about 10 miles away. There are also many surfing beaches nearby, including Hayle and Portreath.

For many of our visitors the principal attraction of the Higher Trewithen is the ‘away from it all’ atmosphere of the beautiful countryside that surrounds us.
